Bought a ticket for this weekend’s British Grand Prix? Silverstone want to put a crisp tenner back in your hand:
Silverstone are delighted by the support that fans have shown to their home race which will see a record crowd at the 2015 Formula 1 British Grand Prix. As a thank you Silverstone is giving back £10 to every single fan who is at the…
If anyone was interested found this on my daily internet adventures.
Mentions there will be an aussie story on the telly tonight.
Doesn’t the roll hoop coming off in Gustavo Menezes’ European F3 crash at Spa reveal glaring sturctural inadequacies in the F3 Dallaras? Menezes tells that after the airborne crash the car was resting on his head. What use is a roll hoop if it breaks in an airborne crash?
This link was shared by one of the F1 Fanatic readers – don’t remember who, but this is how I want F1 cars to look like. The concept by this designer seems perfect – particulalry the wide track and closed cockpit ideas.
Given the very thin grids they’ve had at recent events it’s not a great shock to see this – Auto GP has halted its season ahead of what should have been its fifth and sixth races of 2015 at Paul Ricard this weekend:
So much for the season-opener being cancelled due to ‘political reasons’…
Rodney started the topic Has Hulkenger's Le Mans success increased his market value? in the forum Formula One 4 days, 19 hours ago
For someone who only 2/3 years ago was seen as a possible contender for almost every top seat, and then fall back to a permanent mid-grid resident, has the Le Mans win put Nico Hulkenberg’s name back in the limelight?
His name seems to be mentioned in many circles all of a sudden. We hear Kimi likely on his way out of Ferrari. And even if Bottas…[Read more]
Keith Collantine started the topic Alguersuari to miss London ePrix on health grounds in the forum Formula E 6 days, 10 hours ago
I was surprised to see today Jaime Alguersuari won’t be racing in this weekend’s double-header Formula E round in London on health grounds. Here’s the statement he issued via Facebook:
On June 6th, after the Moscow ePrix I suffered a faint as a result of dehydration and extreme exhaustion during the race.
As a consecuence of this faint I had…
When i was watching qualfying i really enjoyed it as the drivers were clearly being tested to the limit as various drivers spining/ runing wide etc. In my view this is something that F1 has been missing the drivers making the difference in lap time not car performance i.e Hamiltons talent making the difference when all weekend till that point it…[Read more]
Because of my part-time job I can’t watch the Austrian GP live, ..I’ll be in a callcenter by 1 / 2 pm unfortunately
So the question; is it possible to find decent replays of the GP on the web? If so, do you have any good links?
Thanks so much i advance fellow F1F-readers. I really admire this site!
(I hope it’s in the right forum)
As we’ve seen, 2014 was a picnic compared to 2015 for McLaren. Even fewer sponsors, the power unit from hell, and Alonso not even able to beat Button on an average day.
So what’s the answer? Change in personnel? They ditched Sam Michael and others, only to bring in Director of Useless Statements Eric Boullier (what does he do exactly) and others…[Read more]
wanted to edit short video of this years Le Mans. Almost every cockpit view at night is looking super cinematic and add some sparks, or many in some cases, and you have epic footage. Aston Martin 97 looked pretty sexy, what was your favorite ?
I’ve just had my copy of F1 Racing through the door and flicked eagerly to a feature shared by Blundell, Brundle, Coulthard, Herbert and Hill discussing the 1995 British GP among other things. It’s a very interesting read with a final discussion prompt of: “So, who is the fastest of the five of you?” Nobody gave a proper answer; so I thought I’d…[Read more]
A very honest and simple question – have you ever shed a tear (of happiness or sadness) watching any race (F1, or anything else). I also stand up a lot during races shouting at my TV which is funny because I’m as calm as can be in any other situation…
I did twice already that I can remember right now. One was Webber winning in 2009 on the ring.…[Read more]
I’m just want to ask something I happened to think about during the 24hrs.
Does F1 have anything like the 24hr Le Mans? By which I mean a landmark location/race. Somewhere (almost) unique to F1 that shows-off/tests the capabilities of both cars and drivers, and a race you feel everyone is working towards. Indycar has Indianapolis, WEC has Circuit…[Read more]
If you could choose the following elements into one day including at F1 race, what would it look like? You can ignore travel time and logistics, magic will allow you to get around the world in an instant! Here are your choices:
1. Breakfast in which place?
2. Your choice of any race on the current calendar
3. Post-race concert at any venue
Lots of interesting news from Le Mans today. Great to see they will increase its grid to 58 cars next year and 60 the year after that. Hopefully that will mean more LMP1 cars or maybe a few GTE-Pros – I can never get that excited about the pro-am classes.
They’re also bringing back Garage 56 from next year for unusual one-off entries. A specially…[Read more]
I wrote an android app for F1.
Here it is: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evgit.gorace
What do you think about it? The app is in development, so I would like to collect feedback for further features.
And here is a promo screenshot:
