Disappointing to see IndyCar’s planned race in Boston will not go ahead, particularly as the track looked promising.
However the series is considering an event in Mexico City (Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez?) in 2017:
Australia’s V8 Supercars championship will be just plain ‘Supercars’ from July on following a name change:
From next year manufacturers will be able to race four- or six-cylinder engines in the series, which has carried the ‘V8’ moniker since 1997.
The championship also…[Read more]
Reading between the lines of Marko’s comments DR looks like he be off to Ferrari.
Marko hinting Max will going into the RB 2017, cannot see RB getting rid of DK.
Ferrari just has to buy out his contract…not sure if it would be a good move for Dan though.
Joe and Grace spent a lot of time in the Ferrari hospitality area in Melbourne also.
So the Alfa Romeo return to F1 is again a hot topic. The latest news is a tie-up with Sauber. Whilst I would like to see the return of Alfa Romeo, I would not like to loose a team like Sauber. I would rather see them buying in Toro Rosso (as long as DM still wants to sell the junior team). This scenario would be more ideal since they already have…[Read more]

Consider the value of presenting a commentary feed that was much more technically inclined than the Sky Feed. I just watched the NBCSN feed of last weekend’s Indycar race, and during the commercial breaks, the satellite feed keep on going full screen and with full commentary. I heard the comments of veteran announcers that had no idea that they…[Read more]
Huge news in Moto GP today – reigning champion Jorge Lorenzo is to ditch Yamaha in a two-year deal to race for Ducati starting next year:
Is anyone interested in acquiring any copies of F1 News magazine from 2000, 2001 or 2002?
Great if you’re a fan of the era of shiny green Jaguars, Orange Arrows, yellow Jordans, blue Benettons or of of course the scarlet Ferraris of Schumacher and Barrichello.
F1 News was a great independent magazine that ran for 11 seasons from 1992 to…[Read more]

The Hungarian GP will stay on the calendar until 2026, after the current contract running until 2021 was extended. This was announced today when the track reopened after complete resurfacing work has been finished before next week’s WTCC/F3 Europe/Formula V8 3.5 round.

Alonso: current news
Kimi: because of his back surgery / not…[Read more]
My dissertation at University this year has focussed on user experience design for iPads, and I chose to develop a Formula 1 prediction tool prototype as my implementation.
The prototype is now complete and I require fiveFormula 1 fans to test it! All you’ll need is to be at least 18 years of age, own an iPad and have 10-20 minutes of…[Read more]
Formula E has revealed the first design of how the car for its first driver-less championship Roborace could appear.
The Robocar has been styled by Daniel Simon, who previously designed HRT’s livery for the 2011 F1 season which memorably included the slogans ‘This could be you” and ‘This is a cool spot’:

Was just struck by the gorgeous style of Pietro Fittipaldi’s Formula V8 3.5 Fortec car for this year. Great chassis, classy livery:

What other racing cars in F1 and beyond have caught your eye this year? Share some pictures below…
First time in England, first time at silverstone. I’m really excited!
Wondering about getting to the track and places to stay. We have no set plans on where we’re staying, we’re also probably leaving tuesday so lots of options on that front. My main concern is getting to the track. I’m accustomed to public transportation taking us to the…[Read more]
I have an idea for how to fix qualifying.
Returning to the pits is banned. Cars leave the pits every 3 seconds- the order is randomized just before qualifying. Every other lap, every driver sets a time- the slowest one or two are eliminated. Times are wiped, drivers take a lap to cool off, harvest energy etc, then they go again. And so on until…[Read more]
