While, Red bull had to work closely with their engine partners Renault to ensure a reliable package. Surprisingly, Pastor Maldonado topped the…

    So Ferrari launched a concept F1 car render, which they feel would make the sport more exciting. It got them some sponsor exposure as the pictures were shared and got tongues wagging, however it'll never happen as F1 engineers are employed to trim the fat and create cars that generate the most downforce, so unless the rules are going to be completely re-written to create more aesthetically pleasing cars, engineers aren't going to be adding the wings and styling for no aero gain.The pictures are here:The FIA have decreed that no driver shall be allowed to change their helmet design during the…

    Testing resumes tomorrow, with four days at Barcelona's Catalunya circuit. Expect more updates on the cars, a 2014 Force India and more times that are difficult to read into! Of course all updates can be found by following @MSportXtra on twitter and following the #tag #HappyTesting.We are expecting to maybe see some more variations on the nose design, as the teams move away from the 'safe' launch option to converge on the best aero profile, Red Bull have already hinted as much. We are also expecting some tweaks to the Sauber livery (with a yellow 'swoosh' on the nose).A lot of eyes will…
  • Could Force India's future be linked to a vote on Marussia / Manor today?

    5 Feb 2015 | 5:52 am
    Just a quick thought...We all know that Force India are struggling financially, they've made no secret of this fact especially after last years USGP boycott row. The failure of their 2015 car to turn up at the first test in Jerez and now in Barcelona for the second test has certainly set tongues wagging over whether they can afford to compete. The team of course have publicly denied such issues and claimed that the delays are due to suppliers.. but one has to wonder if a delay to suppliers being paid has led to a delay in deliveries of said parts.Now today there is a strategy group meeting in…

    Nico Rosberg put Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS on top for the first time during pre-season testing, but insisted it is still ‘work in progress’ for the team. Rosberg bolted on a set of the Pirelli Soft tyre for the first time to set the fastest lap time seen so far at the Circuit de Catalunya this testing season, beating second placed Valtteri Bottas of Williams Martini Racing by over 1.2 seconds. Despite the impressive times, and the significant distance again covered on day two, Rosberg felt the day started out tricky but ended up positive with his session topping time. “Today was a difficult…

The Brazilian GP2 Series graduate completed 141 laps of the Spanish circuit, running short runs before getting a race simulation in during the afternoon, much like his Swedish team-mate Marcus Ericsson managed to do on the opening day on Thursday. “Today was very productive as we went through the whole programme,” said Nasr. “In the morning I was able to get a feeling for the…

    The FIA have announced the final entry list for the 2015 Formula 1 season, and it sees the Manor F1 Team’s place on the grid secured. The Caterham F1 Team are absent from the list however, ending any hopes of the Leafield team making its own last ditch effort to remain in the sport, with their remaining assets being auctioned off in a few weeks time. Manor’s presence on the grid in 2015 had been in doubt, but the team have proved to the FIA they have sufficient finances and infrastructure in place to be able to race. Will Stevens has been confirmed as the team’s first driver for 2015,…
