Great to see Carlin have confirmed their return to the series.
They’ll have the Jagonya Ayam backing familiar from European F3 last year. So it’s no surprise to see Sean Gelael making the step up from that category – his father Ricardo is a director of Fastfood Indonesia which runs KFC franchises (and uses the Jagonya Ayam slogan).
The second car will be driven by ex-GP2 racer Tom Dillmann, who despite being a newcomer to this category has to be considered a potential title contender due to his experience.20th January 2015, 11:35 at 11:35 am #290628
I dislike this trend of calling entirely new LMP1 cars by the same name as previous.
Agreed. Hopefully Toyota continue to get it right.10th January 2015, 23:11 at 11:11 pm #290189
Over-long Safety Car period aside, that wasn’t a bad race. It was a nice distraction from the off-season anyway!

We’ll have the first F1 Fanatic Live of the year for the race! See you at 7pm UK time.9th January 2015, 18:33 at 6:33 pm #290159
@lockup The last time I checked that’s a legacy offer which isn’t available to new customers.8th January 2015, 10:45 at 10:45 am #290124
Has your local F1 broadcaster changed their prices ahead of the 2015 season? Post updated information for your region using the usual format:
Please complete one set of questions for each channel/network which broadcasts F1 in your country
1. What country are you in (and state, if applicable)
2. Which channels broadcast F1 near you?
No need to include details for broadcasters from other countries whose transmissions you can receive
3. Do they show all the races live or only a limited number (if so, how many?)
4. Do they also show qualifying live? (if so, how many?)
5. Do they also show practice sessions live? (if so, how many?)
6. If they are a subscription channel, what does a full year’s subscription cost (excluding limited time offers)?
Imagine you’ve just bought a TV and paid any taxes or licenses necessary to operate it. What is the minimum you then have to pay per year in order to watch F1?
7. Do they broadcast coverage online? If so please post link/s
8. Please supply any other relevant information such as alternative viewing options
Here’s the current table:8th January 2015, 9:52 at 9:52 am #290121
Interestingly, Lynn could fail to finish a race all year and still be eligible for F1 in 2016.
Gasly, however, needs 15 points, so he’ll have to finish at least fourth in the championship to be eligible to race in F1 next year:8th January 2015, 9:43 at 9:43 am #290119
The first knock-on effect of the FIA’s superlicence points change: Red Bull put both their junior drivers in the DAMS GP2 team.

Given that Gasly dipped a toe in GP2 late last year, Red Bull must have had an idea what was coming. He was the first of their young drivers to race in GP2 since Sebastien Buemi six years earlier, and in the intervening period the highest category any Red Bull junior driver raced in was Formula Renault 3.5.7th January 2015, 11:44 at 11:44 am #290097

Santa Ecclestone hands out his end-of-season presents: he tosses a few shabby pennies to Force India and Sauber, drops off lumps of coal at the abandoned Caterham and Marussia factories, and a squadron of exhausted reindeer drag piles of gold to Maranello and Milton Keynes.23rd December 2014, 9:14 at 9:14 am #289484

I was under the impression team principles couldn’t vote for their own drivers
I’ve had a look back over the previous five years and can’t see anything which indicates that is the case.
In 2012 Alonso scored 269 and eight of the twelve team principals put him first. The only way this can have happened as far as I can tell is he must have been given eight firsts, three seconds and one third. Therefore all 12 team principals must have been able to vote on him.
So I believe team principals can vote for their drivers.
