    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:

    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.

    Interestingly, I’ve just had a survey through from Sky with several questions on my level of interest in watching Premier League and Champions League football versus other sports including F1. This was one of the questions, there were several others just about football:

    Palou is an interesting talent, looking forward to seeing how he gets on.

    Now this is interesting – Nyck de Vries’ team mate at DAMS will be Red Bull’s new recruit Dean Stoneman, last year’s GP3 runner-up.

    Red Bull’s Junior Team for 2015 is Pierre Gasly (retained from last year, in GP2) plus new arrivals Dean Stoneman (FR3.5 with DAMS) and Callum Ilott (European F3 with Carlin). Alex Lynn is a Williams man now.

    @f1antics

    NowTV coverage is nothing fancy and there’s always a terrible time lag

    Is it as bad as Sky Go? I’ve seen reports of 30-60 second lag times on that.

    @junior-pilot With actual race footage in it. That’d cost a fortune today…
