Formula V8 3.5 will become the ‘feeder series’ for the World Endurance Championship next year, the championship has announced.
The championship formerly known as Formula Renault 3.5 will run at the WEC weekends in Europe at Silverstone, Spa and the Nurburgring, plus the fly-away races at Fuji, Bahrain and Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

I’d like to know where you think all the driver’s on the grid stack up in comparison to each other. For me there are three sections, the best drivers on the grid, then the strong midfield runners and then the pay-drivers and backmarkers.
Two years ago I would have easily put…[Read more]
It seems to be a strong bias against Nico Rosberg on this website among some users and I am wondering why.
There are several cases when a fast lap was set under yellow in Qualifying and the drivers did not get penalized, but there was a strong backlash in this case when it was Rosberg.
Then when Hamilton wins a race, it was because of his skill,…[Read more]
The outlook for Ferrari is looking very worrisome indeed. It’s really confounding that a company with their resources continues to fall short in F1 over so many years. I think It points to a endemic problem within the company culture. In contrast, their road car…[Read more]

I’m 40 next year and my wife wanted to buy me F1 tickets for the 2017 Gran Prix and I’ve got in early. I wanted Club Corner Block 1 but they were already sold out. I phoned the ticket hotline and asked if there were any tickets in block 2 that would have good viewing of the grid/start line as well as a bit of the pits. She said there were…[Read more]
sato113 started the topic Hamilton Power Unit penalties- which tracks to take grid drops on?? in the forum Formula One 2 weeks, 1 day ago
So as Hamilton will have to start taking 10 place grid penalties later this year, surely Mercedes can strategically make them happen at tracks where it’s easier to overtake? thus nullifying the disadvantage of starting down the field in 10-12th… If Hamilton needs (at least) 3 grid drops from Belgium onwards, I’d pick:
Spa – proven easy to…[Read more]
Looking at the qualifying results from Iowa today it’s pretty obvious which engine and aero combination you want to have:
1. Simon Pagenaud, Penske, Chevrolet – 185.855mph
2. Josef Newgarden, Carpenter, Chevrolet – 185.639mph
3. Helio Castroneves, Penske, Chevrolet – 185.433mph
4. Max Chilton, Ganassi, Chevrolet – 185.419mph
5. Charlie Kimball,…[Read more]

Nasty crash in a recent BOSS GP race involving Wolfgang Jordan in a 1997 Benetton B197 F1 car and Peter Milavec in a Panoz DP01 Champ Car. The latter was carrying the onboard camera:
I’ve sat at luffield, brooklands and stowe before, although I was in a grandstand at stowe, unfortunately I haven’t been at becketts but there is general admission areas throughout that sequence (they fill up incredibly early, take a book and a camping chair). I found when I went in 2013 that “general admission” applied to anywhere that wasn’t a…[Read more]
Looking forward to the weekend! What areas would you recommend for quali and for race for General Admission tickets. For Sat I think we want a view of the cars at top speed/corners so Becketts if you can sit there as GA?
For race any overtaking opportunity places would be best.
Would appreciate all thoughts.
I was disappointed to see Chris Evans has stepped down as Top Gear presenter after just one series in the job.
As gigs go, stepping in to replace Jeremy Clarkson and assembling a new team to take over from Richard Hammond and James May was never going to be easy. Though I must admit before the trio left I had gone from being someone who rarely…[Read more]
