    @diceman I believe the rumours originate from Lorenzo de Luca (citing the Corriere della Sera as his source), who works for TJ13. This website reported today that Button might leave McLaren as early as Monza. I.e., this is complete rubbish.

    @keithcollantine Mercedes is hopeless, but I was curious how he would do without the backing of a big team. I was under the impression that this was also the Verstappens’ plan, but it changed when Max started winning so much. Ah well, we’ll see.

    Hmm, that’s a shame. I think he could have gone a long way without backing from Red Bull, not to mention that I’m not the biggest fan of the RB Junior Team. Then again, he probably learned from Frijns’ experiences and I think the do-or-die mentality kinda fits him.

    So, next year then? Maybe GP3, take Lynn’s place at Carlin or claim one of the Arden seats. Or perhaps already one step higher, FR3.5? He could do two years of FR3.5, which means he will be 18 years old after that second season.

    On an unrelated note, does anyone know what they will do with the gearing? If you set it to automatic it will probably shift at 12,000 rpm, but with a manual gearbox you could potentially go to 15,000 rpm.. right?

    I’ve read somewhere that he would become non-executive director or something? The point of this story was that Di Montezemolo would not leave Ferrari to (be able to) join Alitalia.

    *Sigh* I can’t be bothered, just build me a street circuit in Kiev. :P

    Yay! :)

    Following Bernie Ecclestone’s standard policy, the next country to host a Grand Prix is the Ukraine. This will be a street race in Kiev. Some rules:

    - The track shall be fit for Formula 1.
    - The entire track shall be located within this area.
    - The track shall be between 3.0 and 8.0 kilometres in length.
    - A pit lane is not mandatory, but it is appreciated.

    Entries close within a week or so, depending on the entries and how busy I’ll be. I will announce the deadline 24 hours in advance. Good luck and have fun! :)

    FOM has been very good at ignoring social media and internet. Ecclestone said something like ‘social media will blow over eventually’.

    It won’t. I get it, you get it. The only one who doesn’t get it is the 83-year-old man who is in control of F1. Investing in social media would be a fantastic way for F1 to reach a new audience. Also, setting up an on-demand website for classic F1 races would be booming business. They have a gold mind in old videos and in potential, but they don’t seem to be doing anything with it.

    I thought this piece hit the nail on the head: http://thejudge13.com/2014/08/04/voice-of-the-f1-fans-socially-inept-f1/

    6.1 km, clockwise

    Note that since the distance starts counting from the beginning of the start/finish straight, so technically I did meet the fifth requirement.

    Trying to be as unbiased as possible, I think this decision is ridiculous. Looking at both incidents: Fuoco drove into the back of Verstappen, after which Verstappen gave back the place, which was fair. Then the next lap, Verstappen is ahead of Fuoco when they touch. Verstappen moves a little bit over to the inside line, but not more severely than I’ve seen other drivers do this weekend. I really have no clue why the summation of these two incidents gave him a drive-thru’.

    @mathers Agreed, I asked them something yesterday and they almost immediately replied – F1, take note!
