IndyCar has released the latest image of how the 2018 cars will look. The removal of the rear wheel shrouds is particularly interesting – presumably they no longer feel these are necessary on safety grounds:
I’ve never been to a race and probably never will again (way out of my price range) but I got tickets for my 40th, just want any help and tips on making g the best out of my once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m super excited.
Here’s the line-up for the upcoming test featuring Roberto Merhi:
1. Charles Leclerc, Prema
2. Antonio Fuoco, Prema
3. Louis Deletraz, Racing Engineering
4. Gustav Malja, Racing Engineering
5. Luca Ghiotto, Russian Time
6. Artem Markelov, Russian Time
7. Nobuharu Matsushita, ART
8. Alexander Albon, ART
9. Oliver Rowland, DAMS
10. Nicholas Latifi,…[Read more]
@keithcollantine Yep I did! In fact I found your and Ben’s commentary much more interesting and informative than the US commentators, who all seemed a bit bored for most of it! BT should get you guys doing the full race commentary :)
Really enjoyed the race, happy for Bourdais as he did a great job and it clearly meant a lot to him. I feel a bit…[Read more]
@f1alex Indeed – you may have heard me this evening! The exact plan for the year isn’t in place yet but we will be doing continuity coverage during the American ad breaks for all of the race bar the few which are on in the early hours of the morning.
I thought that was a very encouraging start to the season. Bourdais was a bit lucky but he still…[Read more]
That’s a really interesting looking grid. Good to see Newgarden up there in his first race for Penske, and also cool to see Chilton and Rossi both up there.
@keithcollantine, will you be involved with the BT coverage any time this season? I really enjoyed it last year!
Will Power being on pole position at St Petersburg is hardly unexpected but following practice it almost came as a surprise. The Penske domination we’ve become familiar with at this track in recent years has hardly been in evidence, and only two of their four cars reached the Fast Six shoot-out for pole position – the other being team newcomer…[Read more]
So here’s the line-up for what we’re now calling Formula Two:
Nobuharu Matsushita (Honda)
Alexander Albon (R)
Louis Deletraz (R) (Renault)
Ralph Boschung (R)
Johnny Cecotto Jnr
Nyck de Vries (R)…[Read more]
We also have a line-up for Rapax now too.
McLaren’s long-term development driver Nyck de Vries has graduated from GP3. He will be joined by – incredibly – Johnny Cecotto Jnr, who has previously announced his ‘retirement’ from racing and will be racing in this category for a ninth…[Read more]
Personalty very excited about this one as I’m a big fan of Boschung: http://www.gp2series.com/News-Room/News/2017/03_March/Ralph-Boschung-joins-Campos-Racing-for-2017-FIA-Formula-2-season/
The series is going to have a similar look and feel for the years to come as Chevrolet, Honda, Dallara and Firestone have all signed extended deals:
IndyCar returns this weekend at St Petersburg and for those of you wondering what would replace the classic colours of Target on Scott Dixon’s Ganassi car, wonder no longer:
