F1 drivers can now (legally) celebrate after races 20

Imagine the thrill of winning a Formula One race. It’s probably one of the most thrilling, emotional and satisfying feeling in the world. So naturally, you would want to jump out of your skin of excitement and celebrate – obviously by making a ‘victory doughnut’.

However, that wouldn’t be allowed. Until today, that is. 

As of today, F1 drivers who win their races, are allowed to show the world their excitement (and lets be honest, show off a little) by making victory doughnuts after their race on the track. This comes after the FIA amended regulations that prohibited any sort of celebration like this.

Why specifically doughnuts, you wonder? Well, because F1 superstar, Sebastien Vettel did exactly that after he won the Indian Grand Prix – his fourth consecutive one. The crowd loved it, he (obviously) loved it and everyone was happy and cheerful and joyous.

Except the FIA. They didn’t think it was very funny or very cool for that matter. So, they subsequently slapped mr. Vettel with fine of 25 000 euros. Nothing much, hey.

Nevertheless, it seems as though someone within the FIA did secretly like Vettel’s display of achievement and celebration, as this season, every winner will be allowed to celebrate by ‘gooi’ing’ a doughnut at the finish line.

And that’s what we like to see – some spirit, celebrations and really cool doughnuts done in Formula 1 cars.

Formula 1 introduces new engine 29

Formula 1 has recently introduced the new engine that will be used this year. And boy, it is really quite jaw-dropping!

The all new, turbocharged 1.6 liter V6 engine is also a hybrid-electric engine. This comes after the immense pressure that Formula 1 and all of it’s affiliates have been under recently to make the competition (including the cars, obviously) more ‘green’ and environmentally friendly. 

However, this doesn’t mean that the new engine is wimpy. No ways, it is still one hell of a engine.

Even though F1 drivers had to downsize their engines from 2.4 liters to 1.6, this engine produces a mammoth 760 horsepower. In order to be more green, the engine also features a pair of energy recovery systems that pull form exhaust pressure and braking.

This, of course, is the green component that has been the topic of much debate (and praise) as of late.

Another thing to take into consideration, is that fact that the new engine will have to power Formula 1 cars. Now, these cars can weigh up to 500kilograms +. This means that it will power round about 1250horsepower per ton. Quite impressive.

So, who is looking forward to the 2014 season?!

Designed to mark six decades of winning in Formula 1, Ferrari is launching a special edition 599, called the 599 GTB 60F1 and here are the first pictures.  Froilan Gonzalez won Ferrari’s first F1 race in in 1951 and 60 years later, Fernando Alonso won Ferrari’s first race of the current season.

Based on the HGTE version of the 599 GTB, visually the 60F1 has styling flourishes inspired by Gonzalez’s 375 and Alonso’s 150° Italia F1 cars. Customers will have a choice of three liveries including: The 375 F1 colour scheme with a scarlet first used back in the 1950s, the 150° Italia hues with the latest-generation rosso paint and white lower bumpers, A-pillars and buttresses and a version of the above but without the bling-white A-pillars. All the cars get 20 inch diamond-finish forged alloy wheels, satin-finish fuel filler cap and scuderia shields painted on the front wings.

The interior showcases Sabelt straps, dark technical fabrics and grippy Alcantara. A numbered plaque on the dashboard will feature the signatures of both Gonzalez and Alonso.

ferrari2 Ferrari and Red Bull withdraw from FOTA

The New York Times recently reported that both Ferrari and Red Bull have withdrawn themselves from the Formula One Teams Association (FOTA). The organization serves as a forum for advancing the goals of the sports teams.

Ferrari stated that the organization had “run its course” having never fulfilling any of the goals it originally set out including installing a cap on spending to level the playing field among teams and increase competition in this notoriously well-funded branch of motorsport. The eleven member FOTA team all agreed on setting a limit on spending but never followed through.

Both Ferrari and Red Bull were two of the largest teams in FOTA and their withdrawal will likely have a significant impact on the organization going forward.

Redbull & Renault Renew Parternship 12

renault4 Redbull & Renault Renew Parternship

Among all the automakers that have supplied engines to Formula One teams over the years, Renault is likely considered the most successful. While the French car manufacturer has seen world champion status with its own team in 2005 and 2006, a significant amount of its achievements have come from its success supplying independent teams.

Renault’s most powerful partnership to date has come from its collaboration with Red Bull Racing. The team is the current world champion in both the drivers’ and constructors’ categories and this is expected to continue with the recent renewed partnership agreement for five more years.

Renault Sport F1 will continue to supply Red Bull Racing with V8 engines and KERS Motor Generator Units for 2012 and 2013 and will then develop innovative technical solutions for the V6-based power unit that will be introduced from 2014.

Bernard Rey, President of Renault Sport F1, stated that “Red Bull Racing and Renault share the views that stability is a fundamental condition to perform at the top levels of competition. As well as being a unique opportunity to showcase the performance of the Renault engines at the highest possible level, it is also a fantastic arena to develop the technology and expertise within the Renault-Nissan Alliance.”



Schumi “Confession” Is False 12

schumacher confession Custom Schumi Confession Is False

There’s a lot of hoo-ha in the British Press at the moment over Michael Schumacher’s “confession” that he is the problem with the German Mercedes GP team. If you haven’t seen the comments yet, here they are, as reported by Top Gear’s online magazine:

“It is a fact that I am a bit more relaxed than before”, he said, “and I do not know if my mindset is right for this team.”

“At some point, we will evaluate whether I continue or stop,” he added.

“If anything, I am the problem,” Schumacher admitted.

Top Gear has since pulled the article, which I accessed late last night, pretty much ending the debate about whether the quotes were true or not. Apparently, according to forum sites, an Italian magazine attributed the quotes to Schumacher, who’s manager then complained that they were rubbish. The magazine has since pulled the story from their news site, and it seems every one else is following suit.

There is now speculation that the young Italian/Scottish Paul Di Resta, currently having a stunning rookie season at Force India, will take Schumacher’s place at Mercedes GP next year, but I would guess that that rumour was given more credence by the fake comments attributed to the German driver.

The fact of the matter is, Schumacher, at 42, is being consistenly outpaced, outqualified and currently sits behind team mate Nico Rosberg in the driver standings. He admitted earlier that the “big joy” of racing is not with him this year, and he must be speculating about his future.

I always say Formula 1 is like a soap opera, just faster and with better looking girlfriends. It really is anyone’s guess what will happen when contract negotiations kick in towards the end of the season.

Ferrari has always something in  store for race car aficionados. And now, the company is now set to charm the world with its new 458 Italia Grand Am racecar.

This high-end vehicle is made in coalition with the famous Italian competition car maker Michelotto Automobili. This all new Grand Am flaunted is apparently based on the GT3. It  completely obeys all the necessary safety and performance regulations for this category of automobiles.

This racing bull extracts its power from the integrated 500 PS (368 kW/493 hp) V8 engine, and comes equipped with a roll bar, a 48 mm restrictor and Continental tires.

What we found missing in the vehicle are the anti-lock brakes and traction control – we guess that makes it somewhat handicapped. But anyway, it’s a Ferrari and we would always crave to drive one.

 



Formula One Heading for Cape Town; On Track in 2 Years 7

Posted by Alex Ion in F1, F1 News, Formula-One, Grand Prix on 07 7th, 2011

In a few days from now, we might get to see Formula One monsters gearing up for a Cape Town jaunt. In what could be a landmark in the F1 horizon, an agreement that will bring the exciting sporting event will be inked. We hear negotiations are in the final stages. And, when that happens,Cape Town will play host to a Grand Prix event in just about two years time.

F1capetown Formula One Heading for Cape Town; On Track in 2 Years

F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has been pushing hard to drive all the Formula One mean machines into the African terrain for so many years now, and finally is seeing success on that front. Ecclestone believes that the deal is “weeks away from signing”. He has been quoted as saying that a decision might come as soon as F1 “lawyers have a good look at them… within the next couple of weeks”.

bernie ecclestone Formula One Heading for Cape Town; On Track in 2 YearsThis, when it happens, will be Grand Prix’s return to South Africa.  The last South African Grand Prix was run at Kyalami in 1993, and was won by Alain Prost. Treading the path taken byDurban, F1 bosses will look forward to a track similar the one there.

Meanwhile, we also hear Motorsport SA has confirmed that aCape Townconsortium has approached it to run a Grand Prix. However, that will depend on getting the event find a place in the in FIA calendar by Motorsport SA.

 

The money part is still being debated. It would involve huge amounts of many to get the race going atCape Town. Government aid would have to be sought to make things roll.

Going by current estimates, getting F1 toCape Townwould incur costs of at least $100-million. Hope Bernie Ecclestone will be smiling in the next two weeks’ time.

DSC 7504 Breaking News: Ecclestone Tells Local News Team Formula 1 Street Race Will Be Held In Cape Town In Two Years

Eyewitness News has revealed that F1 Boss Bernie Ecclestone has told them that Cape Town will host a Formula One street race in the next two years.

In February this year, the Cape Times reported that a local consortium had been invited to picth a racetrack to the FIA that was centred around the Waterfront, Greenpoint and even running through the Greenpoint stadium.

The proposal is apparently weeks away from being signed: ”I’m hoping we can make a decision as soon as our lawyers have a good look at them… within the next couple of weeks,” Ecclestone has been reported as saying.

EWN Reporter Jean Smyth, talking on 567 CapeTalk this afternoon, said he took a few weeks to get some time with Ecclestone. He added that Ecclestone was quite cagey with details, but was confident that the race will happen.

In the interview (recording posted below) a softly spoken Ecclestone said that as soon as there is a contract in place, things will happen within two years, in Cape Town.

Ecclestone would not be drawn on any further details about the track, or placement of the track. He said if the race could be organised in Johannesburg that would be good.

Reporter Smyth asks towards the end of the interview: “According to you, Cape Town has a real chance of holding an F1 Grand Prix in two years?” to which Ecclestone replies: “Yes”.

There is a tonne of paperwork, licensing and money that goes into staging an F1 Grand Prix, so there is much to iron out before this happens. But that sort of answer from that sort of person is good enough for me to get excited.

Hello Turkey, Goodbye Turkey: Full Grand Prix Report 9
May
Posted by overdrivetv in F1 News on 05 9th, 2011

 

After the almost narcotic high of Shanghai, the Turkish Grand Prix would have had to be absolutely sensational to even compare. While it was without the drama of China, this weekend’s race was certainly entertaining.

Famous for “Turn 8” – a high speed, triple-apex flat-out left hander, in which the drivers have to endure nearly 5Gs of lateral force, the Turkish Grand Prix is one of the most exciting layouts on the modern calendar. It’s a pity the Turkish people don’t think so however, a drastic fall in attendance means the event will probably be pulled from the line up next year. So this might have been the last Formula One GP at the venue for a few years to come.

With a dominating qualifying performance, the Red Bull’s didn’t even bother to see out the final session, choosing instead to keep a set of optional tyres. Vettel’s time was simply unreachable by the rest of the pack, and team mate Webber backed him up in second, with Rosberg in the Mercedes in fourth.

However the clean side of the grid proved to help launch Rosberg, and he easily leapfrogged Webber into the first corner. That was the last time anybody would get near Vettel, as he drove a flawless race to stay out ahead for almost every single lap of the race.

Behind the young German maestro though was an absolute frenzy of overtaking. Button and Hamilton traded places in a few dramatic wheel-to-wheel moves that must have had Ron Dennis clenching more than his teeth. It’s great to see though that McLaren let’s his racers race, there was nothing even resembling team orders for the two scrappy Brits.

It seemed immediately obvious that the FIA had botched at least one of the DRS zones however, with drivers simply skipping past their prey on the outside at the end of the last back straight. Rosberg was victim to just about anyone behind him and minutes later the same would happen to Schumacher, who needlessly turned in once he had clearly lost the place, damaging his front wing and sending him into the pits for a nosejob. That cost him dearly and he looked panicky for the rest of the race.

Kobayashi, who faced a nightmare starting from the back of the grid, was in 5th by the first round of pitstops. He fought all day and earned a hard fought few points in 10th place. The dark horses of the sport, in the black Lotus Renaults, had a bit of scrap when Heidfeld nearly pushed Petrov into the pit lane, but resolved their on-track squabble to finish strongly again, in 7th and 8th respectively.

The rest of the race was a fairly straight forward affair, albeit with the teams playing a few mind games with their stops, and some fairly tricky stops where wheel nuts were just not co-operating. Essentially Red Bull had to match a charging Alonso for stops, reacting immediately when he pitted, to keep Vettel and Webber ahead. Button’s race engineer chose a three-stopper for him, which cost him two places in the final stages of the race; four stops was definitely optimal.

The circus that is Formula One moves on to Catalunya, Spain in a fortnight’s time, 20-22 May. In the meantime here are all the standings, from Turkish Grand Prix race results, to Formula 1 driver and team standings.

HRT F111 Car Unveiled Ahead of F1 Season 14

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, F1, F1 News, F111, Formula One car, Formula-One, HRT, Indian Grand Prix., Jordan, Tata Motors, VW on 02 14th, 2011

HRT (Hispania Racing Team) is all geared up for this year’s F1 calendar after the unveiling the F111 Formula One car. HRT is the only team left to confirm its second driver after Narain Karthikeyan.

The new car was made by the Spanish team’s own group of engineers and designers under the guidance of Geoff Willis and Chief Designer Paul White. Colin Kolles said that the F111 will incorporate the adjustable rear wing as per Formula One norms.

Daniel Simon (Hollywood and former VW designer) is responsible for the outfit of the car, bringing in a fresh air of exuberance and enthusiasm and perfectly complementing the design and structure of the car.

There are lots of empty slots for advertisers with only Simon’s Cosmic Motors and Tata Motors with the help of Narain Karthikeyan, sharing the spoil.

The Indian driver raced for Jordan back in 2005 and can now look forward to the inaugural Indian Grand Prix this year.

But how long a stint will he get at HRT needs to be seen, HRT tried four different drivers last year and none of them secured a single point.

HRT is competing in its second Formula One season, after finishing 11th in the Constructors Championship last year.



Renault Engine Formula to take Competition Head On 20

Posted by Alex Ion in Automotive News, BMW, Car Styling, F1, F1 News, Ferrari, mercedes, renault, turbo engine, v8, Volkswagen on 12 20th, 2010

Renault has reaffirmed that its engine formula for 2013 will even out the playing field in the auto industry. This was following suggestions that its existing 2.4 liter unit was not in the same league as that of Mercedes and Ferrari.

Officials at Renault have stated that there are technological innovations and that the competition is completely open.

The new formula is aimed at bringing car manufactures back into the F1 field, and the sources have said that they have been mindful that there are precise rules for the costs, the materials, the number of engines per season and the speed limit.

Renault has officially withdrawn from the position of being team owner of the Renault team, based in Enstone, but has affirmed that they will continue to supply engines for the coming three years.

During this period, the V8 engine formula will be transcended and the new four-cylinder turbos will debut in 2013.

Although the new formula was aimed at enticing car manufacturers back into the racing game, BMW will not be joining soon, and Volkswagen is not committed either.

Sources say that that Japanese have been expressing interest in the F1, and that Honda is seriously considering making a comeback.

Some time ago, the web space had been flush with spy cam images that told the story of a possible link up between McLaren and CRS Racing. That is indeed happening, and the association is expected to result in a new car by the name of MP4-12C GT3 racer.

From what we get to understand, CRS Racing is likely to build, sell and support the 12C GT3 cars in association with McLaren.  Also, to take the association forward McLaren is also expected to compete in a limited number of races in 2011.

McLaren believes that thinking about a GT3 car alongside the 12C road car is natural.  It is expected that the first fully-developed cars will hit the race track when the 2012 European FIA GT3 Series get underway.

The new car under development is also expected to be sold to private racing outfits at competitive prices.  Let’s wait to hear more on that.

Here’s a video preview:

If you see it from a distance, it is similar to the Ferrari that won Schumacher his world titles. But when it races to your side in a matter of seconds, you realize the difference. It’s the Prancing Horse’s three-seater dubbed “Marlboro Red Rush”, which was seen doing laps at Fiorano.

Rumors about the Ferrari F1 three-seater have been circulating for a while now. Some spy photos taken at the Fiorano Circuit, in Italy, has revealed the Marlboro Red Rush cruising in the rain. Two passengers can accommodate themselves in the seats placed behind the driver’s seat. The car, capable of sprinting to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.9 seconds, can reach 300 km/h (186 mph) in a mere 13 seconds. The car which is based on a Formula One F2002 653 chassis has an 800 PS (789 bhp / 588 kW) engine that operates at 17,000 rpm. It carries 50 liters of fuel, and weighs a total of 845 kilograms. The 5-meters long, 1.8 meters wide car has a top speed of 325 km/h (202 mph).
