In other f1 news virgin has brought out wirth research and is now beginning its move from sheffield to banbury at the old ascari building. Wirth will carry on his sports cars back in bicester. Virgin have also got a new technical deal with mercedes tbc.

the putting back of the new engine formula to 2014 has been agreed by all, but there is no word as to the putting back of new bodywork rules, to coincide with the new engine. so it looks as if there will be "interim " cars in 2013.

I do wish they would leave things alone...what's F1 going to be like in 10 years time....using lawnmower engines and old pram wheels?....or maybe using peddle cars, that would please the tree huggers no end!

OFF TOPIC: Ricciardo to replace Karthikeyan
at HRT on loan from Red Bull starting Silverstone. You should hear about it later. As for the other matter still nothing mentioned.

Forgot Mark and Marko had words following Vallencia.

Thanks guys # Gals.

Why not a boxer? Seems to work well for Porsche and Subaru, even Ferrari in the past. Why limit to any configuration? Just post a displacment limit, and let the engineers have at. To the clever go the spoils, and "let the devil take the hindmost". We don't need another all spec engine (indy) series in the top flight.

commodore. i am surprised at that! whereas nearly everybody would be faster than kartheyan, daniel seems an odd choice. he could ruin his prospects there. just hope thar rb continue to support him, whatever the outcome.
walrus. i dont think that ferrari ever used a boxer. i believe that it was a 180 degree v12. i may be wrong, but sunny is an expert on this. there is a difference!
