F1 » HRT loses fight to make Barcelona


@Kiko Lola had a very long F1 career as a supplier of chassis, from 1962 for John Surtees with the customer Mk4, supplying chassis for Surtees again in the race winning Honda "Hondola" in 1967, Embassy-Hill, Larrouse and finally with Scuderia Italia. The only reason 1997 was so bad is because their engine supplier was so late in developing the engine holding back their own chassis development and then rushing everything with a customer Ford V8 for the 1997 season due to sponsor pressures, they were supposed to enter in 1998. Lola aren't mugs, they know how to build race cars and have very successfully since 1997 in formula Nippon, F3000, GP2, Sports cars, LMP1, CART, F3 and Indy Lights. I'm sure there are more. They have forgotten more experience than HRT have every had.

F1 » Catalunya F1 test times – day four: 24 February – 11am


victorBT33 - that's not sandbagging, that's going as quick as possibly on different options of worn tyres with different levels of fuel. Like they would have to in a race. Sandbagging is going out on supersofts with 3 laps of fuel and easing off the lap to make it slower than it could be. They have limited pre-season testing and none during the season. Ultimate qualifying speed can be achieved during a race weekend, but they will always need race pace to win and that's where this testing helps.
