    Various cuts of a new Sky promo. The representation of a mostly grey field is certainly accurate…

    @chriju0411 An F1 promo with an LMP1 car in it? Interesting choice! Can you give us the gist of the dialogue?

    Here’s an interesting move: Facu Regalia, who walked out of GP2 team Hilmer at mid-season last year, joins Zeta Corse.

    Alexander Rossi confirmed at Racing Engineering:

    Racing Engineering are pleased to announce that Alexander Rossi will drive alongside Jordan King for the 2015 GP2 Series. The 23 year old Californian will drive the number 8 car with the Spanish team for his third, but first full season in GP2.

    Alexander began racing in karts in 2002 and just four years later, after winning National and International championships, he became the youngest ever open wheel racing Champion in American racing history. In 2008 the young American won the Formula BMW World Champion holding the most series poles (10) and victories (14). His success saw him earn a test drive with the Sauber F1 Team and he made history again by becoming the youngest driver, at just 18 years old, to hold a Formula One Super License.

    Alexander quickly moved up to the more powerful single seaters and was soon winning again taking victories in GP3 ! and World Series by Renault before taking his maiden GP2 Series victory at the final race of the 2013 season at the Yas Marina circuit. The past four years has seen Alexander involved within Formula 1 and in the role of Official Reserve Driver within the Caterham and Marussia Formula 1 Teams, driving the series challengers, logging thousands of kilometers and working with the teams to develop the car.

    Alexander will join the team in Abu Dhabi for the first of the pre-season tests, and both he and Racing Engineering are looking forward to a great season ahead.

    More post-crash footage from the scene. Note how windy is, as per McLaren’s explanation:

    Good to see Karam and Chaves getting chances after their Indy Lights successes. But disappointed at the recent rumours suggesting Wilson will lose his seat:

    More from McLaren who state the crash was not caused by a car fault:

    @f1fanf1fan The Felipes Massa and Nasr did both run on track for Williams during the same session last year:

    http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2014/11/07/mercedes-2/

    Max Papis and Olivier Panis shared a track in the nineties but they were never team mates.

    As far as identically-named drivers go, Jacques Villeneuve’s uncle Jacques Villeneuve (Snr) posted three DNQs in 1981 and 1983. Although spelled the same, I think they pronounced their first names slightly differently – perhaps a Canadian can advise?

    Details of the Battersea Park circuit which will host the British round of the Formula E circuit have been confirmed following approval from Wandsworth Council. Here’s a look at the track:

    Battersea Park London Formula E circuit, 2015

    The final event of the season will now be a double-header, pushing the calendar up to 11 races:

    Round 1 Beijing, China, September 13th 2014
    Round 2 Putrajaya, Malaysia, November 22nd 2014
    Round 3 Punta del Este, Uruguay, December 13th 2014
    Round 4 Bueno Aires, Argentina, January 10th 2015
    Round 5 Miami, USA, March 14th 2015
    Round 6 Long Beach, USA, April 4th 2015
    Round 7 Monaco, Monaco, May 9th 2015
    Round 8 Berlin, Germany, May 23rd 2015
    Round 9 Moscow, Russia, June 6th 2015
    Round 10 London, UK June 27th 2015
    Round 11 London, UK June 28th 2015

    I’m not sure adding races to a season after it has begun is a good thing, but if it’s just a one-off for their first season then fair enough.

    The track looks like one of the better efforts for Formula E but it’s disappointing to see how many chicanes have sprung up compared to the original sketches which looked much more flowing.
