• What about Roberto Pupo Moreno !

    He drove for ANDREA MODA F1, team that was able to qualify only for Monaco GP 1992 !

    Moreno was hired for 1991 season for Benetton after 1990 Australian GP second place.

    However, he was replaced by a young german called Michael Schumacher during same season.

  • So, it’s fair to say that a consensus calendar would probably be: Melbourne, Sepang, Catalunya, Monaco, Montreal, NYC, RBR, Silverstone, Nurburgring, Spa, Monza, Marina Bay, Suzuka, COTA, Hermanos Rodriguez, Interlagos, Abu Dhabi.

    Or, by country: Australia, Malaysia, Spain, Monaco, Canada, France, Austria, Britain, Germany, Hungary, Belgium,…[Read more]

  • Verstappen on bottas.I probably wouldn’t vote for it if he did it again but it was certainly original.

  • I think that move from Verstappen on Bottas was fantastic. Brilliantly intelligent and opportunistic.

    The one on Sainz was just as good, although it was mentioned that it was orchestrated by the team, so not too sure about that.

  • @fixy Are you aware you put the same circuit twice on your calendar? Just checking.

  • Baltimore? Really? The awful chicane was put there because of the above ground rail system there, which was slightly higher than the rest of the track, and it at one point made some IndyCars go airborne- but the circuit was actually quite good, and far more challenging than most other street circuits- it just wasn’t well managed.

  • Bahrain never produced a good race until last year (thanks to the awkward track layout, it needed DRS to bring it alive; that is how badly designed it is), and Baku looks alright- but I do not like the idea of staging a GP in countries with poor human rights records and severe restrictions on almost all facets of its inhabitants’ lives. These…[Read more]

  • Testing wise, I would do something like this (aside from 30 days maximum between the last and first races of adjacent seasons, teams would only be allowed to test at these scheduled times during the season, except for SA and NZ, partcipation is optional)

    1. Kyalami, South Africa
    2. All new circuit in Tunis/Carthage, Tunisia (Team testing/Young…[Read more]

  • Ah, brilliant, I have always wanted to post this. I did design a calendar with nearly 50 races but realistically, this will have to do. I have also kept Bahrain, I love that race.

    Pre-season tests:
    Mugello (Italy)
    Losail (Qatar)
    Jerez (Spain)

    Races:
    Australia – Albert Park
    Bahrain – Sakhir
    Malaysia – Sepang
    San Marino – Imola (Italy)
