• Awesome! More GP2 racing! Also, have GP3 ever been to Bahrain?

    Nope, this is the first time for them.

    Agreed, I miss Will Buxton. Not the same without him. Palmer did a good job as co-commentator but the new guy has a long way to go. Might have well have said “Cars are racing! Look!” at the start of race one for all the insight he was able to give on the action at the first few corners.

    So Lotus cuts Ocon and takes on Jorda and Fong as development drivers… money talks is all I can make of that one.

    Very interesting interview with Alex Lynn on Autosport – sounds like Ocon was in at DAMS at one point but that fell through for some reason, which is how Lynn got it.

    So Marciello is switching to Trident… I’m sure I’d heard he was staying with Racing Engineering so that’s something of a surprise. Hopefully the deadwood in the decent cars doesn’t mean talent like this gets stuck with the less-capable machinery. Maybe a RE seat for Ocon then?

  • Ah yes, that does make more sense.

  • What a performance for Mardenborough this weekend. After Silverstone he’s clearly learnt from that experience, and drove a very patient race yesterday to get the reverse grid pole. So glad it paid off.

  • My behavior not incurring into any irregular administrative situation when processing [my case] were fundamental to this decision

    If I’m interpreting this right, he’s saying that he’s been keeping his nose out of trouble this year to help his chances of securing the funding. Looking at the difference maybe he should have been made to feel less…[Read more]

  • If only Sorensen had replaced De Jong instead of Ellinas, eh?

  • Really wasn’t expecting to see Rossi at another team this weekend, but I guess that more or less seals it as to whether he jumped or was pushed. If this effectively means Dillmann replaces Sato though then I’m all for it. Now what can we do about Izawa, Binder and De Jong… Also LOL at the tags on this thread.

  • GP2 supersub Tom Dillmann steps in for Rossi at Hockenheim. Should be fun.

    Indeed. ^_^

  • Alex Rossi has parted company with Caterham, and will not be racing for them in GP2 at Hockenheim. The statement from him is rather positive, talking about considerable experience in F1 machinery during his time at Caterham meaning he is now ready for ‘the next step’. While that might seem a little dubious, the mention of Haas in the last lines of…[Read more]

    De Jong is the son of the team owner IIRC, so he’s in on a technicality. He’s no worse than Binder, I guess, considering the latter’s experience and what should be a decent car.

  • Mardenborough still needs to find that consistency, it seems. He was far too scrappy on the first lap today, chasing the previous mistake rather than holding on to what he has. In a series where overtaking is so tough, losing multiple places on the first lap is suicide. He just needs to find a comfortable 9/10ths and a way to drive every corner…[Read more]

    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…[Read more]

  • Araqiel replied to the topic GP2 Britain 2014 in the forum Group logo of GP2GP2 1 year, 1 month ago

    Yeah, the tweet from Regalia about lack of funds doesn’t tally with his complaints about the team’s performance and his engine, nor the team’s assertion that he has a contract for the whole season. If Hilmer’s engines are duff though then Daniel Abt would surely feel cursed, having spent all last year convinced his ART was noticeably down on power…[Read more]

    Nasr’s only in his third seasons though and had way more championships than any of the other three you mentioned before hitting GP2. I thought all of last year that he should already be in F1 – and he came awfully close with the likes of Toro Rosso, Williams, Lotus, and (where I thought he should be already) Marussia. He was the second-to-last…
