You would assume telemetry would show an engine being down on power, but then it didn’t exactly help Abt last year – not until they started posting the telemetry comparison to Calado online, anyway… Of course the team were on his side there, whereas Hilmer say everything Regalia is claiming has no basis in truth. Regalia also mentioned that his place in the Force India junior program was effectively gone because of the lack of results so far, so I suspect he’s got a contract for the year with funds promised, but the team hasn’t actually received the funds to cover the whole season, and maybe now he feels justified in taking the money somewhere else. Contracts don’t work like that unfortunately for him.
Nice to see Mitch Evans finally winning a race and Felipe Nasr seems to finally be coming into form. Meanwhile, did Marciello use up all his luck in F3 last year? He’s having a torrid time in GP2..
Meanwhile, MP motorsport scored points with ‘it’ll be hard’ Sorensen and Daniel de Jong was useless once more. It doesn’t matter who they put in that second car, it beats de Jong every single time. Embarrassing!
Marciello has been extremely unlucky this year. It happens. He’s a rookie in a feeder series with a steep learning curve. He’ll be a feature race winner sometime this year and a solid cold leadpipe lock for an F1 seat in 2016 with Haas.
