They also built the Corvette that Sam Schmidt drove around Indy last year.5th March 2015, 22:31 at 10:31 pm #293602
I’m getting a bit worried about GP3 this year. If Ocon goes to ART as the rumor mill seems to place him, that’s still only going to leave him, Fuoco, and Palou as the absolute standout talents this season.
Part of that also has to do with European Formula 3 being so stacked with top talent that they may end up with 12-14 different race winners.
EDIT: And immediately as I type that, I see confirmation that Matheo Tuscher is coming back with Jenzer. Extremely underrated, young and a quick climber.5th March 2015, 22:28 at 10:28 pm #293601
Given Stoneman’s history of fighting adversity, that crash is nothing.
Huge, huge ups for Merhi putting the Pons entry on top of the morning session, and Beitske Visser for getting 4th in the afternoon outing. Ellinas looked strong too – this may not be as strong a field as we’ve seen in WSR lately, but it’s not entirely devoid of great talent. (Now it’s GP3 that I’m worried about.)5th March 2015, 22:25 at 10:25 pm #293600
I’ve been kind of soured on the whole hype-fest around Frijns, but I’ll be a liar if I said he hasn’t got the credentials to race in F1.
Like Alonso 2001 or Bianchi 2013-14, you’re going to be seeing some very lopsided head-to-head numbers if he’s paired with Will Stevens.2nd March 2015, 2:39 at 2:39 am #293360

A lot of people are picking Max Chilton yet forgetting that he’s likely going to IndyCars to become the reincarnation of 1993 Nigel Mansell.
I’d love to see Vandoorne in that seat, at least rack up some obscene intra-team stats over Stevens, and get the car on the grid at Melbourne.28th February 2015, 0:57 at 12:57 am #293180
What’s ART’s contingency plan if Stoffel Vandoorne bolts for Manor? Esteban Ocon?
I’m also interested in what Status and Hilmer will do for drivers. I’ve heard almost nothing from them. Sandy Stuvik is supposed to be pencilled in at Rapax, pending official confirmation.16th February 2015, 8:20 at 8:20 am #292203
Japanese F3 champ Nobuharu “No relation to Hiro” Matsushita is the second driver at ART, definitely fits the mold of “young driver” better than Izawa did, though his test times in December were a little on the slow side.1st February 2015, 23:01 at 11:01 pm #291409

Somewhere in the world, Will Buxton jumped up a hundred feet in the air in celebration.
This makes up for re-hiring Brian Barnhart, and if CFH needed a driver to replace Mike Conway as the road course specialist, they got a really good one.30th January 2015, 15:45 at 3:45 pm #291202
Nato is gonna fill the role of Decently Quick Monaco Specialist left behind by Coletti and Richelmi just fine, perhaps even better.
Ocon is still on the cards for a GP2 move, but he just doesn’t seem a good “fit” anywhere on the surface except DAMS, which is already booked up with last year’s Red Bull juniors (Lynn has now parted ways).23rd January 2015, 19:09 at 7:09 pm #290769
Trident turned Cecotto into a top-5 driver and got the most productive season out of Canamasas, who aren’t on the same caliber as Marciello by any stretch. And Marciello has already tested for Trident before in 2013 post-season testing and set the fastest time on the first day.
It may be political, but this is a solid move by a team who, just a year and a half ago, had to take Ricardo Teixiera as a paying option.16th January 2015, 2:09 at 2:09 am #290333
And that’s all before we decide where Esteban Ocon is hanging his hat.8th January 2015, 19:29 at 7:29 pm #290145
So were Caterham Racing as a whole as a team on their way out the door.8th January 2015, 17:22 at 5:22 pm #290136
So much for the deadwood mediocrities. Holy post-watershed vocabulary, that’s a strong team DAMS put together.
