    in News

    Preview of the 2014 British Grand Prix


    An exciting weekend is on tap during the Formula One British Grand Prix at Silverstone. There will be standing room only when British champions Lewis Hamilton, with Mercedes AMG, and Jenson Button with McLaren Formula One, take to the track amidst the cheers of their fellow countrymen and fans around the world.


    All eyes are on Hamilton’s teammate Nico Rosberg who is, currently in the lead for the driver’s championship and determined, not to lose his position.  2013 champion Sebastian Vettel, and Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, are looking for their first win.  Meanwhile, Vettel's teammate Daniel Ricciardo, is looking for a repeat of performance in Canada.


    Williams-Martini F1, made news this weekend when their first female test driver, Susie Wolff, took to the track during Practice One, and completed 4-laps before heading into the garage with, an oil pressure problem.


    The Caterham Formula One team is under going some ownership changes.  Team principle and Air Asia CEO Tony Fernandes has sold the team. We hope the new owners appreciate a great hard working team, especially, their P.R. Officer, Tom Webb.  Caterham is the only team in Formula One with an American driver, Alexander Rossi. Rossi is a GP2 champion and Formula One test driver who deserves, a permanent seat with a team.

    Formula One USGP Practice at The Circuit of the Americas

    in News

    The teams were out on the track for practice today at, the Circuit of the Americas. Taking the helm during practice was the Mercedes AMG team, the 2014 constructors’ champions, with Lewis Hamilton slightly ahead of teammate Nico Rosberg. Both drivers experienced slight mechanical problems with Hamilton’s car, having the more significant of them. This left fans wondering, will the last three races come down to, reliability problems?


    The top five after FP2 were Hamilton, Rosberg, Alonso, Ricciardo, and Massa. Four-time champion and winner of the 2013 USGP Sebastian Vettel, was the slowest of the field and will start at the back of the grid in 18th, due to a gearbox change penalty. Daniel Ricciardo is the only driver who is still within striking distance of the driver’s championship, and was only 1.3 seconds behind leader, Lewis Hamilton.


    Valtteri Bottas with Williams-Martini did not go out in FP1, which allowed Williams test driver Felipe Nasr to make a run. Bottas finished 11th, but have not forgotten that this is the track where he gained his first championship points in 2013.


    Fans did not seem bothered by the absence of Caterham F1 and the Marussia teams. Both teams were placed under administration recently and only Marussia seems to have a ray of hope, for new buyers. This leaves a field of 18-cars for Sundays race. As several of the independent teams continue to struggle, some team principals are looking for changes to be made that will control cost and include more consideration for independent teams.


    The 18-car dilemma caused the format for qualifying to be altered. In a recent meeting, the stewards decided that the slowest 4-cars in Q1 will not take part in the session, and the slowest 4-cars in Q2 will be eliminated from taking part in Q3.
