Are direct questions to Charlie Whiting allowed?
Or do you have to ask one of the others to “tell Charlie” or “get on to Charlie” about something…
Yikes, loose wheels and street circuits don’t mix well.
A reminder too that safety features on cars aren’t as good as they could be, in series where there’s money-saving Stegosaurus racing going on, and old designs continuing way beyond their original planned lifespan. Not just Indy Lights, but United Sportscar, GP2, AiutoGP and no doubt others.
They look like a race car should – low, wide and purposeful, with no awkward or overdone aero bits. Saw them at Silverstone a couple of years ago, and they sound great too. Gave me a new appreciation of the Red Bull colours, which really jump out at you when watching live.
Not another car salesman! They’re everywhere in F1 – Bernie Ecclestone, Martin Brundle; John Button was another one.
No wonder you can’t trust any of them…
Good thing there’s a “Car” column in the results…
Here’s a practice start and a couple of laps from Simon Pagenaud’s visor cam!
Just watched the BBC highlights and I’m none the wiser! Around lap 35, one moment they were 3rd and 4th, then suddenly they’re 8th or 9th behind some McLarens and Ferraris.
They’d ended up on the slower tyres which probably explained why they couldn’t get past a very stubborn Vettel at the end.
When the DRS flap is open, it’s not Racing any more…
Just ‘Williams Martini’, and not ‘Racing’? That’s fitting for a team that doesn’t want its drivers to race.
I thought they were sponsored by Martini clothing on these occasions. That’s how Vijay Mallya’s brands get around it. Don’t remember ever seeing the sportscars, Porsches or rally Lancias without Martini on them.
I still think they should do a deal with London Transport – or ‘Valtteri’ would look quite good on the logo.
Looks like a truck. Those headlights are nasty. And it’s not even using them in the video. Ban them!
A very cool idea for the launch, and it looks great – nicely refreshed (they were beginning to look the same from one year to the next) and different enough from the Porsche. I guess we’ll find out if the Rebellion cars are also white (or still in Lotus colours) in a couple of days when they give Fabio Leimer a test.
Interesting that they’ve binned the ERS-H: That should save some weight if it means no batteries on board.
Don’t know about a level playing field but that looks like a completely level track! Not much in the way of elevation change, and that’s a shame given the surroundings.
None of those 20 seasons had double points, of course…
It would be amazing, and unlucky for Hamilton, if that’s Mercedes’ only car failure this season – but as it stands Rosberg has a useful lead over him.
Calado may still be in – he’s doing the same races as di Grassi, Buemi and Heidfeld.
I still think they should swap drivers as well as switching cars, and make it a team relay thing.
Surely Trulli is ineligible on account of actually winning something?
