F1 » Caterham F1 staff locked out of factory


Substitute the political climate then for the economic climate of today, and you have a not dissimilar scenario, comparing the "haves" & "have-nots". Caterham will not be the last team to fold, as they surely will. The house of cards is teetering on the brink of collapse. And I see that Monisha Kaltenborn has effectively said the same thing today.

F1 » Caterham F1 staff locked out of factory


All a very sorry mess, and not a good advert for F1. Stories such as this (and Jules Bianchi's accident) are the ones picked up by mainstream media - hardly an incentive for new investment in any team, let alone Caterham. In a sense, the whole paddock should be taking a hard look at themselves - remember the reason behind Caterham's (and Marussia's) formation in the first place was the supposed budget cap - destroyed by the established teams (and aided by spankygate). In a way, this is almost a deja-vu situation going back 75 - 80 years - in the mid-late '30's you had two teams, Mercedes and Auto-Union, both state aided, with resources way beyond all the other entrants in the GP's of the day. But for the outbreak of war, one wonders how much longer that situation would have been able to persist. cont'd

F1 » Haas F1 target ‘just surviving’


"Just maybe the guys at the back" - the way things are progressing, by the time his team hits the tracks (assuming they actually make it that far), those "at the back" are likely to be the teams presently well into today's midfield, all the slower teams having already folded/departed. Maybe he's coming to realise that just removing wings (fenders) and the roof doesn't turn a Nasbore car into an F1 car.

F1 » Button: The FIA did a really good job


richard: wgian. the funny thing is that the race actually went ahead when the track was at its best. they were even talking about slicks! had it been earlier, the track conditions would have been far worse.
According to Will Buxton, NBC's reporter on the grid, the support races in the morning were dry. Why they could not have swapped the GP for them is beyond me (the excuse, apparently was "to allow fans to get to the circuit") - Japanese fans are like the Brits - they'll be at the circuit for the gates opening! He (Buxton) mentioned that the stands were packed right from the off. Maybe the FIA could, for the future, add a "Force Majeure" rule that would allow them to overrule the local organisers for certain situations such as this, when the likely conditions were known about several days in advance.

F1 » Alonso: I’m the F1 decision maker


Pepe: Alonso and Qatar Taliz, you are close..., very close :) If everyone knows Alonso just came back from Qatar to the funeral of his sponsor Emilio Botin (SANTANDER) in Santander (Spain), good friend of his. Alonso was in Qatar getting finance for his cycling team, in fact he already got the international license to run the Tour of France. I would not be surprised if at the same time it crossed his mind to get the financing along Honda to purchase ML..., and fully supported by the power house which is Santander and some capital from Qatar. Now it makes sense his declarations. Goodbye... RON Jose in Toronto
Alonso's team will be pro-continental level, so would need a wild card entry for any of the Grand Tours.
