    I remember a race at Homestead Miami Speedway, 1998, it was him and Michael Andretti dueling for the win. In the end, Andretti won, but Moore put up a huge fight.

    His was the first death that hit hard, the first time a driver I recognized was killed at the wheel.

    That’s the easiest 10 quid you could make, honestly.

    Sato’s old and can’t avoid crashing and eventually it’s going to get to a point where fan-favoriteness alone can’t justify a full-time IndyCar gig.

    Please tell me this is just an unfounded rumor.

    Dean Stoneman should have raced in WSR back in 2011 as Daniel Ricciardo’s teammate. Today he’s testing for Arden, who have previously fielded entries for drivers such as Pierre Gasly and Antonio Felix da Costa.

    I would expect a promotion to FR3.5 for the following two drivers:

    – Esteban Ocon, has already driven for Comtec in small sample sizes this past season. A move up to FR3.5 seems likely, along with FP1 appearances in the major league. But will he still be a Lotus junior, or will Mercedes buy out his services as rumored?

    – Dennis Olsen, 2nd in Eurocup this past season, also a likely pick for Red Bull Junior Team in 2015.

    Also, I’m predicting a lateral move for Mitch Evans ala Jules Bianchi and Sam Bird.

    Jolyon Palmer wins the feature, and with it, the GP2 title. Evans 2nd, Marciello 3rd, Vandoorne drove a fantastic race to finish 5th despite a tactical blunder under the safety car.

    All of them deserve to be in F1 by 2016.

    McLaren, please, loan Vandoorne out to some other team. It’s not as if Honda is going to want you to take youth any time soon.

    Patrick Kujala will race for Trident, and Nikolay Martsenko returns to the series for Hilmer.

    If you get Race 07, consider also picking up GTR2 if you don’t have it already. It’s a blast.

    You’ll just need to install the v1.1 patch over the Steam version in order to reclaim the Ferrari and Porsche cars that were yanked out.

    What an awful 24 hours this has been, my god. :(

    If Autosport’s latest report on Simona de Silvestro is true, you may want to scratch her from your driver lineups.

    That’s ridiculous. How do nuclear energy companies run out of money for the driver they sponsor?

    Rumors are picking up that Jack Hawksworth may be jumping to AJ Foyt Enterprises. Daniel Abt is testing for Andretti. James Hinchcliffe may be replacing Simon Pagenaud if Gabby Chaves or (god please no) Rodolfo Gonzalez doesn’t.

    Serrales career has hit a wall in F3, maybe a change will do him good.

    Being Puerto Rican should net him a large fanbase in the States, where there is a huge population of Puerto Ricans.

    The way I look at it, there surely has to be another driver in the single-seater ladder that brings the kind of sponsorship money Canamasas does without the erratic behavior, isn’t there?

    I loathe the idea, for the record.

    Mercedes: Hamilton / Rosberg / Di Resta
    Red Bull: Ricciardo / Vettel / Vergne
    Williams: Bottas / Massa / Nasr
    Ferrari: Alonso / Raikkonen / Bianchi
    McLaren: Button / Magnussen / Vandoorne
    Force India: Hulkenberg / Perez / Frijns
    Toro Rosso: Kvyat / Sainz / Verstappen
    Lotus: Grosjean / Maldonado / Palmer
    [Sauber: Rossi / Van der Garde / De Silvestro]

    Then again, the eighth team would not have the resources to run three cars, Force India and Toro Rosso could MAYBE run two teams – it’s a disgusting proposal that has more negative consequences to cancel out any good from some of these additions i.e. Jules at Ferrari.
