    A topsy-turvy qualifying session has left to the first race not to be a Mercedes lock out for a good while. Instead of the two silver arrows, we have Vettel in the Ferrari joining Lewis on the front row. On the second row we have Robert and Ricciardo in a Red Bull with a Renault engine running the engine map that Renault wanted them to run all along. A rain soaked Q2 and Q3 session has led to some people out of place.  Both Williams cars showed poor pace in the rain, and Kimi got caught out on the only dry lap of Q2,and starts 11th because of it. The two Manor cars have been given the go…

  • Engines upto 5 again

    ashleigh
    27 Mar 2015 | 10:30 am
    In the last few hours the F1 teams have gotten together and agreed in principle to up the engine numbers from 4 to the same as 2014 and all drivers get 5. This is not really down to reliability issues, but rather that the engine manufacturers will find it easier to bring changes, improvements and fixes to the engines. It needs to be approved by the FIA, but as all teams have agreed to it unanimously it’s just a matter of course, or is it? the FIA brought the 4 engine rules in for cost saving, so they may not want to be seen to allow the sport to get more expensive.

    It seems the mud slinging between Renault and Red Bull has not stopped or slowed down, if anything it’s got worse. Speaking in Auto Hebdo, Cyril Abiteboul had this to say about Adrian Newey’s complaints aimed at Renault after Melbourne. “It’s difficult to have a partner who lies. Adrian is a charming man and an engineer without parallel, but he’s spent his life criticising engine partners. He’s too old to change his ways.” This is after Adrian said that he blamed Renault for the poor performance, and “could not see a light at the end of the…

    It seems that Italian Tyre company, and the official supplier of the F1 grid is to be purchased by China National Tire & Rubber (China National Chemical), a state owned company for €7.1bn (£5.1bn). Tronchetti Provera (Chief Executive) will keep his job, and report to Zhang Yi who sits on the central committee of the communist party. What this means to F1 is probably nothing, and I assume the branding will remain ‘Italian’, but it’s worth noting. Copyright © 2015 F1-Blog. This Feed is for personal non-commercial use only.

    Mar.31 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Kimi Raikkonen is back. 2015 is a crucial year for the Finn, having declared his interest in racing on beyond the season but acknowledging his expiring Ferrari contract. Last year, he was humbled by teammate Fernando Alonso. For the new season, 35-year-old Raikkonen is paired with his friend Sebastian Vettel, but it is the German newcomer who is attracting the headlines. Vettel was on the podium in Australia, and he ended Mercedes’ long run of dominance last Sunday by winning on just his second outing for Ferrari — a feat not even the great Michael…

    Amid falling television audience figures and the criticism of new engine formula, F1 tsar Bernie Ecclestone has hit out at teams for being selfish and doing ‘nothing for the sport’ they have a say in.The decision-making power in Formula 1 is equally divided between FOM(Ecclestone), FIA and the six leading teams on the grid. These teams have blocked a number of proposals introduced by the other two members of the ‘Strategy Group’, most infamously, the cost cap.“The teams are egoistic.

    The boss of the German Hockenheim circuit has today announced that there will be no German GP held at the circuit this year.With the German circuits hosting races alternating years it was hoped that with the Nurburgring's financial difficulties, the Hockenheim circuit might step in to save the race for this year, although no deal has been struck with Bernie Ecclestone.This leaves the only option as a last minute rescue bid from Nurburgring but that is particularly unlikely. As such the race will have to be reported to the FIA as a cancellation so that it can be formally removed from the…

    The Manor F1 Team have strongly denied that they cannot field two cars at the same time, and insisted Will Stevens’ failure to start was because of a ‘complex fuel system problem’. At no time during the weekend in Malaysia did both Stevens and team-mate Roberto Merhi share the racetrack, with the drivers taking it in turns on track during practice, but Manor’s Sporting Director Graeme Lowdon dismissed the rumours that they could only run one car at a time. “I can guarantee you if that car could have moved, it would have raced,” said Lowdon to Autosport. “There is…

    The roof of the Silverstone Wing building has been damaged due to strong winds. Recent heavy wind has caused damage to large parts of Silverstone’s corporate building. Most of the damage has been inflicted on the roof and engineers are currently assessing the damage. As part of the upgrades to the circuit, construction of the Silverstone Wing – situated at the new start/finish line – was completed in 2011.

  • Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Pit Stop Gaffes

    Collin Hunt
    31 Mar 2015 | 11:46 am
    As teams attempt to shave every fraction of a second off of the time-sheets, pit stops have been a prime candidate for improvement. From the 1970s, where chaos reigned while mechanics wrestled with unwieldly lugnuts in crowded pitlanes, the process improved to the point where refueling was introduced in the mid-1990s. While a plethora of petrol-related accidents and conflagrations resulted in the eventual banning of refueling, pit stop gaffes of other sorts remain a fact of life in the paddock. While mishaps in the pit lane run the gamut from the season-ruining to the downright comical and…

    After a thrilling race on Sunday, Malaysia has announced a three year extension to hold the event. With Germany having lost their 2015 race slot and Bernie Ecclestone making comments that threaten even the Italian race, this is indeed a coup for the circuit that started hosting the event in 1999, after Korea and India lost their slots in 2014. There had been some question over the Sepang circuit’s future as attendances had been dropping, but race managers had countered that the race helped raise Malaysia’s international profile and lure foreign tourists.

Sure enough, when fate finally dealt him a decent deck of cards he was ready to seize the opportunity with both hands.

    30 Mar 2015 | 3:32 pm
    Bernie Ecclestone is considering the formation of an all-female grand prix series to run alongside Formula 1 to help more women get into the sport. The last woman to race in a grand prix was Lella Lombardi at the 1976 Austrian Grand Prix. However, Williams’ test driver Susie Wolff is the currently most active female driver in F1, taking part in two practice sessions last year. She is set for another two FP1 appearances in 2015 at the Spanish and British Grands Prix. However, F1 does remain a very male-oriented sport, and Ecclestone thinks that setting up a women-only series would…
