F1 » Barrichello F1 comeback scuppered by Caterham issues


Rayzerp2: Just proves what a mess the "pinnacle" of Motorsport is in at the moment. No offence to Barrichello but if this was superbikes or Moto GP a small team would be getting in somebody who might get them some results....in F1 the back of the grid has become a pay to play since it is impossible to get results against the front teams anyway. Best possible drivers in the best possible cars? Dont think so. Since the Virgin space ship crashed Richard Branson might as well turn to offering a ride in a F1 car for a couple of million.
Well, perhaps that was exactly the point. Lotus already does in Paul Ricard. Why not in an actual GP?

F1 » Ecclestone: F1 issues ‘probably my fault’


Googolplex: As I read it, Bernie wants the big teams to agree to give him the flexibility of selectively providing financial support to struggling teams without being in breach of the funds distribution agreements.
I just heard in Fox LA that Mr E gets 45% of the revenue and teams 55% If such figures are right, big 5 teams just need to agree that 5 of Mr E's 45 were split among the 0 point teams at the end of the year. Don't know how much it would be but I bet that would be pure oxygen for struggling teams.

F1 » F1: Force India retains Hulkenberg for 2015


All above said, my belief is that Checo has what it takes to compete for a higher stake in F1. Probably made a mistake by going to Macca to make room for Esteban in Sauber, but gave him a top team experience anyway, and it is finally yielding at this stage of the season. Yes the Telmex support is hughe but he has also proven qualified for the challenge, and that might be the reason he has yet to sign. There has been word in Mexico about talks with Lotus which I understand is switching to Merc PU, and my guess is that it could make them stronger than FI for 2015. We'll see.

F1 » F1: Force India retains Hulkenberg for 2015


richard:
jlr: WHO IS TELEMAX??? DO YOU MEAN TELMEX? FOR A COMPANY LIKE CARSO WHO OWN TELMEX CLARO ETC .....
WHO IS CARSO??? DO YOU MEAN CARLOS? :D
Grupo Carso is a hughe group of services, construction and infrastructure enterprises owned by Carlos Slim. Telmex itself is a separate telephone and internet company also owned by Slim but not part of Carso, I believe for legal reasons. Separately, America Movil, cell phone company, is as big as Telmex, and also Slim owned. There is a number of foundations for education, sports, culture and people aid on Slim's name. Carlos Slim Jr runs Telmex and the car racing support for F1 and a number of other categories in Mexico, US and others. Basically all mexican drivers around the world are somehow supported by Scuderia Telmex. Hope that helps

F1 » Ecclestone in talks over Las Vegas F1 race

JohnMarston: You must be American.
Actually I'm half Scot half Dutch working in Africa ... but I've traveled & worked in a variety of places around the planet so I understand different markets a little better than you probably ... especially wrt motorsport. If you don't understand the need for more US races, rather spend your time doing some research than trying to be smart in the comments section.
So what you're really trying to say to me is, go do some research until you agree with my opinion, because no one else is allowed to have differnet views on something..?
What he is really trying to say is that a 200m people country which happens to be the world's second biggest economy other than China has got to be of interest for a sport of which half of the grid is close to financially ditching. Michelin screwing in Indy which is the cathedral of US racing history is a wound that Mr E s
