    Formula E has abandoned its efforts to host a Russian round of the series in Moscow on June 4th. Attempts to organise a replacement race in Monaco have also failed. Both events were part of the series’ inaugural 2014-15 schedule.

    The news means there are only two race weekends left for this year’s championship – Berlin on May 21st and the London double-header on July 2nd/3rd. It’s good news for championship leader Lucas di Grassi too as his 11-point advantage over Sebastien Buemi counts for more now there’s only 90 points left on the table instead of 120.

    cannot see RB getting rid of DK

    Why? Ricciardo’s doing much better. And Ricciardo has already indicated he may not be able to leave Red Bull next year.

    @zantkiller Thanks very much for the tip. I’ve been in touch with the circuit and they’ve supplied some more information:

    @robinrhysjones Thanks again for that tip – they were only on for a brief bit at the end but it shows just how grave the situation was for Lotus last year. They had creditors queueing up…

    Not sure if the programme is available for streaming, here’s the home page. It’s series four episode two:

    It’s hard to tell much from the picture. Wouldn’t be surprised if they want to fix the awkward pit entrance Tilke put in. But not sure how they could do it with the space they’ve got.

    Always wanted to see this livery on a single-seater and here it is thanks to Jamie Caroline in MSA Formula:

    The project has hit a significant setback as Wales’s economy minister has declined to give a guarantee for the £357m investment the circuit is trying to raise:

    What about F1’s three newcomers this year?

    Great to see the field building up and there’s two quality newcomers in Rosenqvist and Stoneman. Jones has got to be a strong tip for the title though.

    Here are the Russian Timers. No obvious Meldonium sponsorship:
