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?30th September 2014, 3:59 at 3:59 am #276323
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.19th September 2014, 19:44 at 7:44 pm #275191
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.8th September 2014, 14:57 at 2:57 pm #274055
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?8th September 2014, 14:53 at 2:53 pm #274054
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.6th September 2014, 16:40 at 4:40 pm #273731
Even for a driver with as much tenure as Palmer has, he’s been so consistent AND quick that it really becomes a null issue. It’s not just DAMS either – Richelmi has been nowhere near his pace round-to-round. Palmer likely won’t be a champion like four-year-tenured F3000 driver Damon Hill was, but I’d say he’s more than earned a place in F1 on merit.6th September 2014, 15:38 at 3:38 pm #273684

And in the immortal words of Scooby-Doo, “Ruh roh.”5th September 2014, 18:00 at 6:00 pm #273494
You never know. Palmer and Nasr could implode this weekend, and Vandoorne could hat trick the feature race, pick up points in the sprint, and suddenly those potential snoozers at Sochi and Yas Marina become the grounds for a proper 3-way title fight.5th September 2014, 15:09 at 3:09 pm #273478
Preview of the 2015 Team Leafield F1 livery.
Qualifying’s on now, very close so far – Top 25 separated by under 1 second.3rd September 2014, 17:17 at 5:17 pm #273239
@craig-o I’d always thought that a move from GP2 -> Indy Lights like Razia made this year would be a step down. The IL-15 will be about 200hp down on the GP2/11. But then I thought, “maybe it’d be smart for some of these drivers who have little or no oval racing experience to hone their abilities in the Lights car before they get up to the Indycar Series.”
Personally, however, I think Daly is good enough to jump straight into Indycar for a full or partial season.3rd September 2014, 0:39 at 12:39 am #273179
Olsen has a fantastic record in karting it seems, and is doing well in FR2.0 – GP2 might be a sponsor-driven bridge too far, though.
Daly’s F1 aspirations, what little he had with him already having a foot in the Indycar door, sunk with Lazarus. I don’t think Olsen will fare better.2nd September 2014, 22:14 at 10:14 pm #273172
I’m so happy Will Power won the title. Been a fan since 2007. He’s earned every sliver of precious metal on that trophy.2nd September 2014, 22:12 at 10:12 pm #273171
Last GP2 Red Bull driver was Buemi in 2008. Thinking this could be the start of a shift in power back to GP2′s favor if 2014′s first half, or even a race like the Spa Feature wasn’t evidence of that.
Gasly and Lynn would make a top-notch driver combo in GP2 next year.2nd September 2014, 22:08 at 10:08 pm #273170
Minardi, always, and forever.
