    Although Pirelli thought they had confirmed all the tyre compounds they’d be using for the 2014 season, they’ve made a small tweak for the race after next - the Brazilian Grand Prix. A statement from the Italian manufacturer says: “Although the hard and medium nomination has been used in Brazil for the last two years, the recent resurfacing of the Interlagos track has prompted the change to medium and soft. This new choice is the same nomination as the US Grand Prix the weekend before.”See more on Pirelli alter tyre compound choice for Brazil

    Oct.2014 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Dominant Mercedes is unapologetic amid increasing pressure to agree to an engine ‘unfreeze’ for 2015. The new constructors’ champions came under fire recently when Red Bull’s Christian Horner claimed Mercedes went back on an earlier pledge to agree to relax the sport’s tight restrictions on in-season engine development. “Sometimes you have to reset your own interests and do what is best for the sport,” Horner is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport.

    Oct.20 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Force India has a radical suggestion about how F1 should proceed in the sport’s Pirelli-tyred era. Earlier in the Italian supplier’s F1 tenure, Pirelli was famed – and often heavily criticised – for spicing up the race action with its aggressive tyre compounds. That has changed dramatically in 2014, as the marque responded to the often explosive events of last year and the arrival of ultra high-torque turbo V6 engines. The last race in Russia, for instance, was notable for its lack of drama. Sochi circuit designer Hermann Tilke insists he is…
