Good to see a new venue and location on the calendar which isn’t another street circuit. I wonder which of the many possible configurations they’ll use?26th August 2014, 9:36 at 9:36 am #272280
Some really great videos this weekend @andae23, thanks very much. I’ve used pretty much all of these!
Are there any changes you would like to see on the video search page which might make this easier?24th August 2014, 20:46 at 8:46 pm #271907
@andae23 Thanks for the tip on the Lotterer one – that’s the problem with that Spa pit entrance!21st August 2014, 9:01 at 9:01 am #270871
Piquet Jnr’s seat confirmed:
Team China Racing has announced the signing of Red Bull Global Rallycross championship leader Nelson Piquet Jr as one of its drivers for the inaugural FIA Formula E Championship.
Piquet Jr’s career has seen him compete in a wide variety of disciplines, including NASCAR, Formula 1, GP2 and British Formula 3. He now joins other former Formula 1 drivers Nick Heidfeld, Sebastian Buemi and Jarno Trulli on the Formula E grid.
Formula E is the world’s first fully electric racing series and will see drivers compete in the heart of ten of the world’s leading cities including London, Miami and Berlin.
Nelson Piquet Jr: “I have always enjoyed the challenge of racing in a variety of formulas, so I’m delighted to be able to drive in Formula E. To be a driver in the very first Formula E championship is a great honour as it’s a very interesting new concept in motorsport. I’m delighted to be participating with Team China Racing who are looking to establish themselves in the sport.”
Steven Lu, CEO, Team China Racing: “Nelson has proven time and again his ability to perform at the highest level across a range of different racing formats and this was a key factor in our decision to sign him to Team China Racing. In his tests at Donington Nelson was very quick and we believe the team has signed one of the most talented drivers on the grid.”
Steve Hewett, Head of Motorsports at The KINC, is handling all sponsorship enquiries for Nelson Piquet Jr and Team China Racing.20th August 2014, 22:30 at 10:30 pm #27085520th August 2014, 18:37 at 6:37 pm #27084018th August 2014, 18:52 at 6:52 pm #270609
Here are the race highlights. Rotten luck for Hunter-Reay who was making a great recovery:18th August 2014, 18:51 at 6:51 pm #270608
Classy win for Power. He surely has the championship in the bag.
I’ve heard that a few times before!
But with both the remaining rounds (Infineon and Fontana) being on tracks where he won last year, it’s looking good for him.17th August 2014, 10:41 at 10:41 am #270551
Looking forward to it – we’ll be on F1 Fanatic Live from 8:30pm BST tonight.15th August 2014, 8:44 at 8:44 am #27049714th August 2014, 9:00 at 9:00 am #270471
Silverstone will be properly miffed about this given it’s only four years since they reconfigured their circuit to make it more bike-friendly (though when they planned that they were at risk of losing the British Grand Prix to Donington Park).13th August 2014, 22:35 at 10:35 pm #270462
@jeff1s Thanks for that. If, as you say, it’s mostly speculation, it should be presented as such by the person who wrote it in the first place (which may be the case) and by those reporting it now. That hasn’t been the case in most of the reportage I’ve seen, and several more publications have run it today.
Some of the responses to this both here and on social media have been very revealing. A lot of people prefer to assume the list is accurate and not entertain the possibility that might not be the case. This is why “a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes”. When Mark Twain first said that it was hyperbole – in the age of the internet it’s an understatement.13th August 2014, 8:38 at 8:38 am #270348
a Santander top man said that their company hadn’t renewed their McLaren contract amidst the Hamilton departure because with Button alone they didn’t think they would reach the audience they want
I don’t remember seeing anything about that at the time – can you provide a reference?13th August 2014, 8:37 at 8:37 am #270347
@zimkazimka Using the figures for anything is a complete waste of time if they’re not accurate to begin with.12th August 2014, 22:41 at 10:41 pm #270332
Whether or not it’s ‘reliable’, what it definitely isn’t is ‘new’ – the list is at least three months old:
