The first practice session for the Belgian Grand Prix ran to its usual form with the two Mercedes drivers leading the way followed by Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari.
Nico Rosberg led the way by less than a tenth of a second from team mate Lewis Hamilton, with most of the difference between the two accounted for by the final chicane.

But IS Marussia owned by a billionaire?

That possibility certainly can’t be completely ruled out, although I am pretty sure payments from Chilton wouldn’t be hurt as such because Marussia F1 team is a UK entity too @hohum.
After thinking about it, my […]

Toro Rosso acts as a school for Red Bull but Red Bull doesn’t need so many drivers in the near future. That’s a BIG problem, because it totally cancels out the purpose of Toro Rosso.
WHat are they going to do […]

I lol’ed !
In the round-up: Lewis Hamilton says he would have taken his team’s order to let Nico Rosberg past in Hungary more seriously had the instruction come from executive director of technical Paddy Lowe instead of his race engineer Peter Bonnington.

I guess Marussia gets a cut on their engine package from Ferrari for running their protegé, so its not all too clear they could replace Bianchi without getting the prancing horse to agree with it.
But yeah, […]
Especially since it now seems Rossi is going to be racing as well, so what number will Alex be running then (Marussia mentions “contractual issues” with Chilton, i.e. money has not arrived on time I guess)
Pictures from the build-up to the Belgian Grand Prix.
Daniel Ricciardo became the latest F1 driver to take the Ice Bucket Challenge, Ferrari duo Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen drove ultra-high fuel economy cars, and Toro Rosso’s latest signing Max Verstappen visited the paddock.

sorry guys, I may be dizzy :P
About Alonso, I remembered maybe for that 10th in Germany and somewhere else saying he WOULD have a point compared to modern points.
About Vettel, it’s a mistake oops. But he did […]

Alexander Rossi will make his Formula One debut in this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix in place of Max Chilton.
Marussia say the change is being made due to “contractual issues” with Chilton.
Team principal John Booth said: “Although it was not our intention to offer Alexander the possibility to race this season, in light of the circumstances…[Read more]

I remember Vettel topping practice times at 17 and Alonso getting a point for Minardi (in the old points system that was much harder)… Hamilton was already good in minor categories, and Rosberg entered Williams […]
Formula One is a realistic option for younger drivers like Max Verstappen because the cars have become much easier to drive, according to current racers.
F1 cars are around five seconds per lap slower than they […]
