    It sounds a bit mad, but Lewis must still have a home there, after all he grew up inside of McLaren’s camp, and now that Ron is back at the head of the F1 project, it may seem a sensible idea. Sky F1 are reporting that there are murmurings from the management both sides of the deal. Would be interesting, and possibly a good move with Honda coming back to Turbo Powered F1 racing with McLaren, which was such a strong pairing last time out, and he could even emulate the great Ayrton Senna in that regards. I think it would probably swing however on how the championship outcome gets decided.

    Fernando Alonso has hailed the “amazing” job being done this year by Daniel Ricciardo. At Silverstone, Spaniard Alonso’s wheel-to-wheel duel with world champion Sebastian Vettel was littered with radio complaints about one another’s driving. But after Hockenheim, where the Ferrari driver had a similarly thrilling battle with Vettel’s new teammate Ricciardo, Alonso had nothing but praise for the Australian.

    The relationship between Red Bull and Renault appears to be in better health. Mere weeks ago, as the French supplier struggled with its new turbo V6 ‘power unit’, talk of a split in the four-time title winning partnership was rife. But that was before a raft of changes.

  • Top 10 Tweets from the German Grand Prix

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:30 am
    Sunday's German Grand Prix saw Nico Rosberg take his fourth victory of the season and extend his lead at the top of the drivers' standings. Valtteri Bottas took his third successive podium, cementing predictions that he is the star of the future. However, it was Lewis Hamilton who provided us with the most entertainment as he charged from the field after his qualifying crash. But the Brit could only manage third at the chequered flag, with a costly misjudgment while overtaking Button and the subsequent front wing damage costing him the chance to finish in second place.

  • hungaroring: be prepared, curves are coming!

    22 Jul 2014 | 3:36 am
    And, without letting us more than four days to savor the spectacular German GP, F1 returns this Friday. This time we go to Hungary, to the Hungaroring, near Budapest. It will be the last stop before the summer holidays - more than deserved this year after the great work being done by the teams and drivers to adjust to the changes of this season. Although the first edition of the the race was held in 1936, for political reasons there was no race there until 50 years later. So, the first official GP at the Hungaroring was in 1986. It's one of the few circuits that have not been modified in a…

Meanwhile, Williams, which looked unusually slow on Friday, emerged as the second fastest team come Saturday afternoon with…
  • Germany Friday Analysis: Mercedes still the fastest, but with a reduced advantage over their rivals

    After the news broke out that the FIA race director Charlie Whiting is looking to ban the FRIC suspension system, Mercedes downplayed its significance, with Lewis Hamilton saying the car felt the same without the system at the Silverstone in-season test. Come Friday of the German Grand Prix, things look slightly different with both the drivers admitting that some work needs to be done to adjust the car without the passive suspension system.

Even if it’s called Hockenheimring and not Mercedes Ring, the German GP is partially sponsored by Mercedes with the Stuttgart based company paying for new grandstands. We can bet this time that the home team will perform better than we saw at the Austrian GP but will Nico Rosberg claim a victory in the country which he was born in or will his team-mate Lewis Hamilton win this particular war? Or, by the contrary, will Red Bull driver…

I hope that some of this helps and gives you an idea of the thoughts of the public.Reduce F1 to a 2 day weekend format but with 25 race weekends a year? Include a sprint race on a saturday?Bring back fat tyres & skinny wings - decrease the reliance…
