Another disappointing quali for Will Power. What is going on with him and to some extent Penske this season? They completely dominated the beginning of last year and were pretty strong throughout the season. Currently Will is in 14th place in the championship while Helio is 3rd. Could not having a full-time third car be their problem in terms of setup? That said, Chip Ganassi is not doing great either (8th, 11th and 17th).31st May 2013, 20:43 at 8:43 pm #237365
Both races at Belle Isle will have rolling starts, but the other double headers (Toronto and Houston) will have a standing start for Race 1.30th May 2013, 21:40 at 9:40 pm #237357
Really happy for Ryan – he was great at Sonoma and Baltimore last year.6th May 2013, 17:48 at 5:48 pm #236249
They have a mix of street circuits, road courses (traditional race tracks) and ovals. For this season they will go to 16 venues of which the breakdown is as follows:
– 6 ovals
– 7 street circuits
– 3 road courses
I would like for it to balance out and have a couple more road courses (Glen anyone?), but I doubt that will happen.5th May 2013, 9:48 at 9:48 am #236225
Looking forward to Vautier and Pagenaud making their way through the field. I wonder what is going on with Power. He has had three very bad races – especially when compared to his start of the season last year. Think we might see a different winner for the first time at Sao Paulo…25th April 2013, 16:17 at 4:17 pm #232140
They used Honda engines from 1983 (I think) to 1987. They won the 1987 WDC with Nelson Piquet and the WCC in 1986 and 1987.24th April 2013, 16:37 at 4:37 pm #232169
Isn’t this just Bernie’s way of putting pressure on the Port Imperial project (in terms of completion or maybe something else). Similar to Donington vs Silverstone in 2008. Or that is at least how I perceived the Donington situation – from the media coverage it never looked like a serious offering.14th April 2013, 14:50 at 2:50 pm #231921

There was indeed a yellow Ferrari in the 1961 Belgium GP. It was driven by a Belgium driver – Gendebien. I am not 100% sure if it is the reason, but yellow is (was?) the racing colour assigned to Belgium.8th April 2013, 16:58 at 4:58 pm #141449
Yes, that’s it. Long Beach 1983.8th April 2013, 16:40 at 4:40 pm #141447
OK maybe a slightly easier one :)
Who is the driver who made up the most places from the start (throughout the entire race) to win?7th April 2013, 15:48 at 3:48 pm #141445
John Crichton-Stuart (7th Marquess of Bute) – descendant of 18th century prime minister (John Stuart, 3rd Earl of Bute) On his father’s side, he is a direct male-line descendant of King Robert II of Scotland and from his mother’s side, he is descended from King Charles II of England and Scotland. Could not find the link to the 14th Century nationalist.6th April 2013, 18:45 at 6:45 pm #231087
Hunter-Reay and Power sharing the front row. Dario all the way back in 17th.6th April 2013, 15:32 at 3:32 pm #231086
