Surprised no one’s mentioned Trulli’s victory in Monaco yet, the only time in a stretch of 13 races that Schumacher was beaten!5th June 2015, 13:02 at 1:02 pm #299429
Oh yes, that obscure 3-time world champion Nelson Piquet, I’d forgotten about him!9th May 2015, 16:00 at 4:00 pm #298007
Surely this move by Piquet on Senna should get a mention! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_Hbuydy9LI18th March 2015, 21:10 at 9:10 pm #294782
Dale Coyne have retained Carlos Huertas for a second year.
Francesco Dracone will be alongside him for at least the first four races. After a couple of unsuccessful Indycar outings in 2010, Dracone has spent the last few years racing in Auto GP, with his best results a pair of 6th places last year.16th February 2015, 8:20 at 8:20 am #292132
ART have announced Japanese F3 champion Nobuharu Matsushita alongside Vandoorne: http://www.gp2series.com/News-Room/News/2015/02_Feb/Nobuharu-Matsushita-completes-ART-Grand-Prix-line-up/14th August 2014, 16:03 at 4:03 pm #270484
Has everyone forgotten his start at Hungary ’08 around the outside of Hamilton? Or the battle with Kubica at Fuji in the rain? Oh wait, that’s the “old” Massa, that doesn’t count. He’s not the same driver any more!2nd June 2013, 15:49 at 3:49 pm #237310
Not a bad race, but I thought the TV coverage was rather disappointing. Somehow they managed to completely miss a first-lap pile-up at Eau Rouge that took 4 cars out, only cutting to it once the drivers had vacated their cars. No replays were forthcoming at all. They also cut away from Jaafar and Sainz just before they collided, despite it being pretty clear Jaafar was about to have a lunge down the inside, and again there were no replays.
I can understand them wanting to follow the leaders in case something happens, but when major events in the race manage to slip under the radar, there’s a bit of a problem!
Good to see Stockinger have a good run, even if he wasn’t able to convert it into a top 10 result as he should have done. Did anyone pick up what the problem was with his pit stop? (The commentary I had was in Russian…)1st June 2013, 18:48 at 6:48 pm #237375
I must say, I’ve been impressed by Viso this year. Consistency has historically been his problem, but this year he’s been consistently qualifying and racing up at the sharp end, even if the results haven’t always gone his way for one reason or another. He’s also cut out the unnecessary accidents – as far as I remember, the only one he’s had so far was when he was taken out by Hinchcliffe at Long Beach, through no fault of his own. Looks like moving to Andretti was the right move for him, I think he’ll get a big result soon.12th May 2013, 15:45 at 3:45 pm #236366
They’ve given a 10-place grid drop for Monaco to… Rio Haryanto.
Seems a bit harsh, I’m not sure where else he could have gone!2nd May 2013, 15:48 at 3:48 pm #213196
Ryan Cullen has just been announced as joining Marussia.
As for the other seat I have no idea – Pal Kiss returning, maybe? There was some talk of him finding a FR3.5 seat for this year but nothing came of it, so he could come back for another year.28th April 2013, 13:31 at 1:31 pm #232661
What happened to Nato?
My stream thought it would be a good idea to cut out at key points in the race (for example, just before the safety car came in, and – for the second day in a row – on the final lap before the winner had crossed the line). It also managed to miss a couple of laps near the beginning of the race, in which Nato went from 1st to 25th, and no replays were forthcoming… did he spin off?25th March 2013, 9:12 at 9:12 am #229339
Very entertaining race. A lot of big names (Franchitti, Hunter-Reay, Power) hitting problems and failing to get results, a promising debut from Vautier, De Silvestro finally being able to show what she can do, some of the more unpredictable racers like Andretti, Sato and Viso racing cleanly in the pack to score good points, the comedy of errors from JR Loldebrand, the scramble to the finish line, and a first-time winner in Hinchcliffe. Looking forward to round 2!28th February 2013, 19:39 at 7:39 pm #227774
Disappointed that I had to scroll so far down the thread to find JPM and the horse with horns!
Anyway… here’s Rubens struggling like a pig: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B59B5p7KrrM14th December 2012, 12:04 at 12:04 pm #207315
Signing Ericsson does seem to make sense – in recent years DAMS have often gone for one driver with a bit more experience to partner an up-and-coming youngster. But I wasn’t expecting Richelmi in the second seat…
Where does this leave Rio Haryanto, now the Carlin and DAMS seats have been filled?16th November 2012, 12:09 at 12:09 pm #215124
It might be interesting to talk about the Prost GP team, seeing as it was (at least initially) intended as a French “national team” in the Force India/HRT mould: the idea behind the project and how/why it failed.
This article has some interesting perspectives: http://cfm.globalf1.net/?page_id=140
