    @oryandunn I believe you can get it via the Fanvision handsets, if they’re available.

    You can find info on all the previous official and unofficial F1 season reviews here:

    I’d start with 1982, 1986, 1989 and 1990. These are only on VHS, though.

    According to Craig Scarborough: “That bodywork was tested earlier this year for hot races. So its not new.”

    I’ve had a look at pictures from some of the hotter races (Valencia, Sepang) and I’ve not seen anywhere it’s actually been raced yet – may have missed it though.

    Racing Engineering will run Fabio Leimer (who drove for Rapax in the main series this year) and Nathanael Berthon.

    Press release:

    Following on from their very successful testing at Barcelona, Racing Engineering are pleased to announce that Fabio Leimer and Nathanaël Berthon will be driving for the Spanish team in Abu Dhabi at the season-ending 2011 GP2 Final to be held from the 11th to 13th of November.

    Swiss driver Fabio Leimer has been the undoubted star of the recent GP2 test sessions held at Jerez and Barcelona. Leimer dominated the Jerez test, setting the fastest time in three out of the four sessions held as well as setting the fastest overall time of the two days. Although the Racing Engineering team spent more time at Barcelona in working on race set-ups than looking for quick laps, Leimer once again set the fastest overall time.

    With his previous race-winning experience of GP2 and his form in testing, Leimer must be one of the strongest favourites to take win the Abu Dhabi races.

    Although Frenchman Nathanael Berthon is still a relative newcomer to GP2 racing, his speed in the Barcelona tests and his previous experience with the Racing Engineering team in last year’s GP2 Asia Series means that he too is a serious contender for the 2011 GP2 Final.

    Team Quotes:

    Alfonso de Orléans-Borbón, president of Racing Engineering: “After the great results of both drivers in Barcelona, I am really pleased to continue with them at the Abu Dhabi races. It’s a great opportunity to see their performances under race conditions. I think that both the drivers and the team have a good fit. This makes me confident of good results for that weekend.”

    Fabio Leimer: “The two successful GP2 tests in Jerez and Barcelona with Racing Engineering have shown us what is possible if everything is working well. Therefore, I am happy that I have the chance to additionally test the potential of this team under race conditions. We have obviously already tried different solutions for Abu Dhabi during the Barcelona test and I am actually quite confident we will make a good impression during the race weekend. I am very much looking forward to the races in Abu Dhabi.”

    Nathanael Berthon: “It’s almost a year ago I was racing in Abu Dhabi and I am looking forward to another race weekend there with Racing Engineering. It’s a real pleasure to work with the team again. I am sure that everything will go well during the Abu Dhabi weekend as the car is good. Physically I am strong and I like the track. I was competitive during the Abu Dhabi races last winter and since then I have gained quite a lot more experience. Additionally I know the car and track now. I am really, really confident for the race weekend in Abu Dhabi.”

    I saw the race as well and while I liked a lot about it (close racing, unusual track, brilliant setting, fabulous roster of drivers) the inconsistency over corner-cutting was dreadful. Needs a completely different solution for next year.

    This looks like the same cover in the background of this picture from India:

    OK, here’s the video:

    Bianchi driving from around 14:45.

    The engine cover does look different to what they’ve run recently – not 100% sure it’s new, but good spot if it is!

    @geemac With Toyota leaning on the rulemakers I wouldn’t expect that to stay the case for very long.

    Just seen this troubling development in the story of what happened to him: Simoncelli was dropped by marshals after crash

    Toby. That’s very odd – looks like a German of Beadle’s About / Candid Camera / Noel Edmonds’ Gotchas.

    Have had a question from a reader on why there isn’t a separate article on Simoncelli’s death on the site. For the benefit of anyone else who might have wondered, here’s my response:

    Only just heard about this, what a terrible thing to happen. And to lose two drivers within a week of each other is just too awful for words.
