Enjoying the exchange between Marciello and Canamasas in response to the latter’s idiotic driving yesterday:
To the threats, insults, bad words etc; I borrow the words from @R_Marciello:"People can speak a lot about Me in a bad way but I don't care"

@junior-pilot Lots of book and video recommendations (and non-recommendations!) here:
And I have to strongly disagree with @raikkonen25 – the official Hamilton autobiography is a complete waste of money. If you want to read about Hamilton, get this one instead.6th September 2014, 11:40 at 11:40 am #273630
An excellent find, thanks @Alexandre. Clearly a huge amount of work going on, although as expected it seems the track layout is remaining unchanged, which is definitely a good thing.
The big question for me is what they’re going to do with the pit lane entrance, which has to be one of the most dangerous spots on any track on the calendar today. Presumably all they can do is move the entry earlier in the lap, to a point where it’s not ‘in the firing line’ as much. But that will leave them with a very long pit lane, especially considering the exit comes out after turn three.5th September 2014, 23:10 at 11:10 pm #2735875th September 2014, 19:49 at 7:49 pm #273565
Bit of a bombshell here – Palmer’s been excluded from qualifying for having too little fuel in his car and will start last. Massive opportunity for Vandoorne and Nasr.

A well-chosen line-up for this weekend’s first press conference following the Belgian Grand Prix drama:

Meanwhile Daly is also out at Venezuela GP Lazarus according to an email from his management (emphasis added):
American Conor Daly learned early on Tuesday morning that Venezuela GP Lazarus had replaced him for the upcoming weekend in Monza, Italy. It was not a total surprise as the team had informed him after Spa that they were in need of additional funding.
“I’m naturally disappointed but thankful for the opportunity that Venezuela GP Lazarus provided me this season,” said Daly. “Lazarus is a great team of people who race because of their love of the sport and I wish them every success in the future.”
Daly was not in a position to provide additional funding to the team and therefore had to step aside.
2014 marks the fourth season of European racing for Daly who spent three years racing in GP3, and this season in GP2. Daly won two races and stood on the podium eleven times and scored one pole in the past two years racing in GP3. He finished third in the GP3 Championship in 2013.
“Europe for the past four years has been a an invaluable experience for me,” said Daly. “It was a sacrifice well worth making because I know today that I am a better driver because of it. I’m ready for my future, whatever it may be.”
Daly attended the recent Fontana IndyCar weekend as he pursues all options for the 2015 season. “I want to be a professional race car driver and be in a position to take advantage of any opportunity that might come my way,” commented Daly.
And Dennis Olsen, who’s been very impressive in Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup this year, is tipped to get a seat:
I have good reason to believe that Norwegian driver Dennis Olsen will be racing at Monza this weekend in #GP2. Watch this space and my blog.

For me it’s mainly the grand old names of the sport: Brabham, Tyrrell, real Lotus.31st August 2014, 23:18 at 11:18 pm #272729
Power drove an excellent, controlled race from the back and deserved to finally pick up the title. Castroneves’ penalty put the lock on it but Power had already done enough. Here’s the highlights from the race:29th August 2014, 0:12 at 12:12 am #272575
He’s racing in Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. He started the year well – three thirds and a win, was tied with Nyck de Vries for the lead of the championship – but hasn’t scored since then.27th August 2014, 21:44 at 9:44 pm #272474
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
