    Enjoying the exchange between Marciello and Canamasas in response to the latter’s idiotic driving yesterday:

    @junior-pilot Lots of book and video recommendations (and non-recommendations!) here:

    F1 book reviews
    Official F1 Season Reviews

    And I have to strongly disagree with @raikkonen25the official Hamilton autobiography is a complete waste of money. If you want to read about Hamilton, get this one instead.

    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.

    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:

    Fernando Alonso
    Valtteri Bottas
    Max Chilton
    Lewis Hamilton
    Kevin Magnussen
    Nico Rosberg

    What would you ask, and to who?

    @rjoconnell Is Olsen the first example of the ‘Verstappen effect’?

    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:

    For me it’s mainly the grand old names of the sport: Brabham, Tyrrell, real Lotus.

    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:

    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.

    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?

    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?
