It was good to see them wheel to wheel. Clean racing on the limits, as it usually is when Champions race each other.
Great that WTCC is having a go on the big track at Nurburgring!
I doubt WEC will ever go to the Nordschleife but with two German P1 manufacturers and a third, German based P1 manufacturer (Toyota, TMG, Cologne) I wonder if they will ever push to have a WEC race on the F1 track at Nurburgring.
Force India at Monza.
Perez at Monza.
(The last race won by a manual gearbox?!)
Swimming Pool or Ste Devote?
Audi vs. Porsche vs. Toyota vs. Nissan
WEC just gets better and better.
Silverstone Arena Circuit (eg 2013 F1 layout) or Silverstone Bridge Circuit (eg 2009 F1 layout)
I think WEC needs a really engaging and easy to access 1 hr highlight and feature show on the Monday evening on free-tv after the races.
Something on (for example) ITV2/3/4 which shows 30 mins of race footage, gets interviews with drivers and team personnel, and pieces which explain the rules and different tech used would be great.
Six hours and 24 hours is probably too long for casual viewers but a well produced highlights and features show on a popular channel at a reasonable evening time could prove to be a surprise hit with viewers.
I expected BMW to do well in 2009 after ‘sacrificing’ the title run-in 2008 to concentrate on the new rules.
A late crash was all that stopped Kubica getting a podium in Australia (Round 1) and Heidfeld actually got 2nd place in Malaysia (Round 2). It looked like their was some potential in the car.
Then it hardly scored a point for the rest of the season… It was over by Catalunya.
‘RACING’ – it lived up to that billing today. ;)
Obviously the Martini logo is the roughly the same shape as the London transport roundel but interestingly enough Williams Hybrid Engineering (F1 team subsidiary) did a deal with Transport for London in 2012 to stick flywheel energy recovery systems in some buses, utilising technology directly derived from the unraced 2009 Williams KERS system so there is history between the two!
Here’s hoping they can take the fight to the German P1 teams and build on their five WEC victories to give us a great season!
Hmm, I preferred the black testing livery.
I foresee some fans being so tired when the sun rises at hour 18 of Le Mans 24hrs that they will mix up the white Porsches and Audis!! :P
Pagenaud needs some yellow for a return of the AWESOME Team Spirit Renault F1 colours!!
If they drop the Tweet-vote crap, I’ll watch Formula E.
Right angle, chicane, right angle, chicane: Inspiring stuff right there.
The pitane is the mose interesting feature yet it’s still just right angles.
