    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.

  • 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.

Length of the circuit is 5.412 km and drivers will complete a total of 57 laps for a race distance of 308.238km.

    Lewis Hamilton led home a Mercedes one-two finish at China's Shanghai International Circuit on Sunday with Sebastian Vettel completing the podium for Ferrari. The Mercedes duo remained mostly unchallenged this weekend but got involved in a war of words after the race. Nico Rosberg was frustrated with Hamilton slowing down in the second stint, forcing him in the clutches of third place runner Vettel. While Rosberg managed to stay ahead of the German, he couldn't maintain his calm and cool exposure in the press conference room.The race was brought to an anti-climax end after the Renault…

    Bernie Ecclestone has been telling those who will listen that we need to ditch the current engines and go back to the old V8's immediately as it will be a) Cheaper and b) bring the fans back?I'm not quite sure why Bernie says this rubbish its clear it's not true! It'd obviously just to get idiots debating this. but lets face it, the current engine manufacturers are not going to go backwards or spend millions re-calibrating all of their kit to to breathe life to the old dinosaurs!---------------------The Daily Mail have decided that Lewis Hamilton is degrading women by spraying one of the…

    ‘We have reached a settlement with Sauber and my driver contract with the team has been ended by mutual consent. As a passionate race driver, I feel sad and am very disappointed. I have worked very hard my entire career, ever since starting with go-karts at the age of eight, to live my dream and become a successful Formula One driver. I had hoped at last to be able to show what I am capable of, driving a car for a respected midfield team in the 2015 season. This dream has been taken away from me and I know that my future in Formula One is probably over.I had a valid driver contract for the…
  • No German GP at Hockenheim

    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…

    Christian Horner knew he would be making headlines with his comments after the Australian GP in which he stated that their should be some equalization to bring all of the sports engines into a similar window of competitiveness, his argument is based on the fact that it would bring closer racing and therefore be better for the sport as a whole.I really have quite a few problems with the statement, first and foremost, when has the health of Formula One been top of Red Bull's agenda? When they challenged the regulations last year to try and de-stabilize the amazing new technology in these brand…

    The Sahara Force India team secured their first points since the season opening Australian Grand Prix in Bahrain, with Sergio Perez finishing eighth at Sakhir, although team-mate Nico Hulkenberg could not convert his top ten start into a top ten points finish. Perez made a two-stop strategy work to take his best finish of the season in eighth, and felt it was one of his best races when it came to managing tyres and pace in his career so far. “Eighth place feels very good and I’m very satisfied,” reflected Perez. “It was a great opportunity to score points today and this is a…

    Four races into Honda’s return to Formula 1 with McLaren, the engine supplier are still seeking their first points of 2015, with Fernando Alonso getting the closest so far this season with eleventh in Bahrain, although Jenson Button was unable to start due to more mechanical woes.

    The Sauber F1 Team left the Bahrain International Circuit on Sunday without adding to their 2015 points total despite both Marcus Ericsson and Felipe Nasr having strong pace throughout the race in the desert. Nasr lost a handful of positions on the opening lap, but was running competitively during the race before a loss of power cost him valuable time that ultimately saw him finish outside the points in twelfth. “It was a difficult first lap for me as I got squeezed in turn 1, so I lost a few positions,” said Nasr. “Afterwards I got stuck in traffic, which compromised my race pace…

Both Will Stevens and Roberto Merhi saw the chequered flag in Bahrain, with the Briton sixteenth and the Spaniard seventeenth. Stevens was happy with his evening’s work despite being forced to start a row behind where he was scheduled to by an errant Pastor Maldonado starting out of position ahead of him. The Briton battled hard to regain his position ahead of team-mate Merhi, and felt Manor could be proud of what they have achieved in the…

    Jenson Button was left sitting on the sidelines for the entirety of the Bahrain Grand Prix, but put his free time to good use, tweeting about the race with his observations. Jenson’s Bahrain weekend was a nightmare from start to finish, having encountered numerous technical problems over all three days. Falling by the wayside in FP1 with a spin due to an electrical problem, he managed to put in a small handful of laps during FP2 before problems struck again on Saturday.

The Australian came home in a respectable 6th place, 17.7 seconds behind the 5th placed Sebastian Vettel, although he was just over a minute behind the race winner Lewis Hamilton. When asked by Sky Sports F1 if he had lost another engine, Ricciardo replied: “I don’t know, there was a lot of smoke so it didn’t look great. The bright side is I just got over the line, but literally out of the last corner I saw smoke everywhere. It didn’t look good so let’s see what happened.

    After another engine failure during Sunday’s Bahrain GP, Renault’s Cyril Abiteboul says that with three weeks until the next race, they can implement better fixes for the problems they have been having. Renault have had a nightmare start to the 2015 season, with a power deficit to the likes of Ferrari & Mercedes, coupled with drivers complaining of poor drivability. Added to the mix has been a series of engine failures for Red Bull & Toro Rosso, all of which have been giving the staff at Renault a headache, and the company a bad reputation with such high profile failings.

    Valtteri Bottas believed that Williams’ result today was the best that could be achieved in the circumstances following a fourth-place finish at the Bahrain Grand Prix. Bottas was set for a lonely race behind the Mercedes and Ferrari teams until an unscheduled pit stop for Sebastian Vettel promoted him to fourth place. From there, he was able to keep Vettel, who was using slightly newer tyres, behind until the chequered flag. “I think it was the maximum result today,” admitted Bottas. “I think from my side of the garage we can be happy with what we achieved today and…

    Lewis Hamilton breezed to his third victory of the season at the Bahrain Grand Prix, ahead of Kimi Raikkonen and Nico Rosberg. A brake issue for Rosberg on the penultimate lap, and multiple mistakes for Sebastian Vettel during the race cost the pair positions.

Out in front Hamilton began building a comfortable lead, and left Rosberg and the two Ferraris to scrap over second place. Vettel…

After starting 14th, Alonso came home 11th, narrowly missing out on McLaren’s first points of the campaign. “We weren’t quite fast enough to get into the top 10, but we finished the race and got a bit more valuable experience with the car, which had been our main objective. “Everything worked fine on my side of the garage, but unfortunately Jenson couldn’t start the race. “We need to look at many things…

    Valtteri Bottas says he was pleased to hold off the advances of Sebastian Vettel to claim his best finish of the year at the Bahrain Grand Prix. Bottas, starting fifth, had a ‘lonely’ race until the final stint, when Vettel rejoined behind him on track after an unscheduled stop for a fresh front wing. The Finn held off the Ferrari racer over the closing laps to secure fourth, his highest finish since last year’s season finale in Abu Dhabi. I am pleased with the race and happy with fourth position,” he said. “It was a real shame for the team that Felipe had an issue at the start.

    Pastor Maldonado says he lost time and positions when the engine anti-kill triggered during his third pit stop during the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Lotus driver pitted on lap 43 for his third stop, but was forced to sit in his pit box for a long time while the engine reset and restarted. For a while it looked like Maldonado’s race was over but the team managed to get him back out on track, allowing him to come home a lowly 15th. “Unfortunately the engine anti-kill triggered when I came in to make my final pit stop which cost me a lot of time. It’s frustrating as we should have…
