Heres hoping he’ll pull through, thankfully he was wearing a ski helmet, from the reports of his current condition, that most likely saved his life.14th December 2013, 10:48 at 10:48 am #247186
@prisoner-monkeys would the numbers not just be a single pool, irrespective of category, certainly since GP3-GP2-F1 is the established path and support series. If it was me, I would make all three categories choose from a single pool, to ensure numbers stayed the same through their whole career.14th December 2013, 4:40 at 4:40 am #247180
@prisoner-monkeys I would imagine they are waiting to see how it pans out this year (2014), and then maybe introduce it in 2015 to the lower divisions. However, then you have the problem of, do the test-drivers get to pick their numbers first, even if they aren’t in the official tier system? i.e Renault 3.5, DTM, etc…
If they did, I would imagine they would have to increase the numbers to allow for the tripling or more of the driver pool, i.e up to say 150 or so. Then they would have to allow F1 drivers to change their number if they had a preferred number in that increased range to their current one. Then F1 test drivers, then GP2 in championship order inc test drivers, then GP3 in championship order and finally GP3 test drivers.
Obviously, some would be above their championship position if they are a test driver. BUT being a test driver means you are closer to F1 thus should have better number selection position. This would also then be the template for new drivers, F1-GP2-GP3.12th December 2013, 11:51 at 11:51 am #247086
I really like the idea of not limiting engine type/size but fuel usage. It would make for a much more exciting development. Do you go for the more powerful but fuel hungry V10 with a big KERS engine to reduce fuel consumption on the straights but carry more weight. Or go for the smaller less powerful but lighter and more fuel conservative V6 turbo?
So many different options and it would encourage engine development and take some focus off the aerodynamics.10th December 2013, 0:48 at 12:48 am #246196
I still think Torro Rosso should switch to the Sugar Free Red Bull colours, like @jezson did prior to the 2012 season. I really liked how that car looked2nd November 2013, 5:54 at 5:54 am #242218
Anyone else think this would be a good opportunity for Tesla to join racing, it does fall in with their all electric mantra and it would drum up even more publicity for the Model S20th October 2013, 23:27 at 11:27 pm #243213

On a related note, whats the deal with the pink flag?6th October 2013, 9:02 at 9:02 am #242546
I would hope that given his performance today that Nico could be in the running for the 2nd Lotus seat, has there been any word on who is favourite to fill that spot?25th September 2013, 8:22 at 8:22 am #242042
Not sure if you’ve seen it, but the A45 is a spectacularly racy car, 355hp 450NM, most powerful 2L engine in the world, 0-100 in 4.6sec. Sounds fantastic, can’t wait to see a race verison.22nd September 2013, 10:05 at 10:05 am #241833
Why was Rossi turning in from so far on the right? Must have been a last minute decision surely7th July 2013, 19:45 at 7:45 pm #238623
@Fixy the 458 is paddle shift only, so no clutch pedal. however he could still be left foot braking/right foot accelerating as I do that even in my automatic.21st June 2013, 22:47 at 10:47 pm #237513
Well, looks like you were right @Prisoner_Monkeys. Volvo have been confirmed in the V8 Supercars http://www.v8supercars.com.au/news/volvo-car-australia-joins-v8-supercars and now they are debating a manufacturing cap.30th April 2013, 10:17 at 10:17 am #180328
Not sure if its a problem on the site or my computer but I seem to have to log in far more often then I used to, I click the “Remember Me” button when I log in but it only seems to last a day or so when it used to last for weeks.1st April 2013, 5:45 at 5:45 am #230931
I suggest that everyone remember what day it is. Now I’m not saying its not true but considering the date I suggest not.5th November 2012, 20:47 at 8:47 pm #214372
