  • Spa francorchamps

    21 Aug 2014 | 3:43 am
    Summer break is gone and we are finally starting the second half of the season in one of the favorite track for most of the drivers: Spa Francorchamps. The circuit is located in Belgium, surrounded by spectacular landscapes, Ardennes forest, and it’s the longest track of the calendar. It was designed in 1920 and the first Grand Prix there was already held in 1924. Back then, Spa was 14’1 km long. The track ran across the public roads of the area, making it quite dangerous. Until 1970 minor changes were made and it was lightly shortened, but it wasn’t until 1978 (after having…

    It’s been three weeks. Agony for the F1 fans to have to wait for three whole weeks from Silverstone to Spa Francorchamps… but not everything was gonna be bad right? We have been quite entertained with the silly season, rumours, official news… Let’s summarize a bit some of the most important changes that happened during the break. May we start with the most crazy and unexpected one: Toro Rosso confirming the youngest ever F1 driver for next season. Max Verstappen, Jos Verstappen’s son, is going to jump from F3 to F1 in 2015, when he will be only 17 years old.

    With the summer break duly underway, it’s the perfect time to pick the top five drivers from the first half of 2014 season. These drivers probably adapted themselves better to the new generation of F1 cars than others, no matter at which end of the grid they were racing. Some of the young drivers proved their mettle in these new cars, making their experienced teammates look rather average. However, the same couldn’t be said about the likes of Fernando Alonso, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg who continued to shine and prove why they are considered as one of the best drivers on the…

    With those inside the sport running around worrying that F1 is broken, the show we see on a sunday afternoon seems to be pretty awesome and really doesn't need much tweaking. But with fans demanding more for their money and smaller audiences at some tracks, does F1 need to innovate and offer more value for a fans ticket? Does F1 need to re-think the format of the race weekend?Kevin Eason of the times believes that it does and that a possibility would be to have a session on a friday where all cars need to be on track, and whoever sets the fastest time gets 5 points towards a friday…
