F1 » Wehrlein to test Force India in Barcelona?


another f1 team dying. Even with Merc Engine they weren't able to make enough money last year to invest and bring a 2015 car to first test in Barcelona let alone Jerez. Some of it has to do with the woes that Vijay Mallya has along with Sahara (I Believe the title sponsor Sahara doesn't put in any money considering it is crippled by Indian Supreme court and its CEO is in jail) but Bernie's method has almost killed everyone except (Redbull, Mercedes and Ferrari ). Sauber has glimpses of hope after the new ferrari engine and I hope Force India and Sauber do not wind up. Lotus isn't doing that great either and can wind up this year. This is very bad for sport. Bernie's policies have lead to increasing costs and law of diminishing returns has taken over. With not many new teams being ready to join, and 3 car teams sound yuck plus all european venues shown the door by Bernie, the future of formula 1 seems getting bleak day by day.

F1 » Qatar closing on F1 race deal for 2016


Well nothing good about it. The sport still is european since most drivers and teams are from there. Bernie cares only about money and there is no way most circuits can compete with the folks in middle east who drill and pour dollars out. Most airline companies are suffering from emirates and etihad the same way. Billions of dollars with no taxes and unlimited funds and no employment /human rights. Welcome to sharia law in all businesses. I for one hope oil dries out. The oil companies in america and europe share equal blame due to their greed. They have helped to grow these state monsters with no concerns for women or human rights. I support formula 1 going to any non oil state in south america or asia but they cannot satisfy greedy cvc or bernie.

F1 » Raikkonen puts Ferrari back on top at Jerez


I think ferrari made a good step forward. It is all they need. A strong base to start with. With no engine freeze and with james allison /kimi / seb they will rebound in couple of races even if they fall out of top 10. Lets not forget they have unlimited finances and less bureaucracy now. Further even saber with ferrari engine was quick. I hope that will enable sauber to be competitive and not end up marussia / caterham.

F1 » Ferrari behind on 2015 F1 car development


I have not seen a Fortune 100 company CEO coming to press so many times a week. With two great drivers and a great technical director, they should just be working and not doing any talking (just few days into new year). No one needs to know whether they are behind on development or not (and their competitors are not gonna believe it either). So the only folks they cheat are the ferrari fans which I hope they don't do. Sometimes no news is good news until they go to testing in Feb

F1 » Alonso hits back at Mattiacci comments


Marco said nothing wrong. He obviously has to justify his multi million dollar investment in vettel and hence said he is younger etc etc. primadonna should just shut up and go to the next team. The team did not win either a constructor or driver championship in 5 years despite treating him like king and the other driver like his parts tester. Of course now they brought him down from pedestal and he with the cheat briatore briatore are naturally very upset. Good luck with ron dennis. He will be better than marco in dealing with primadonnas.

F1 » F1: Alonso: 'I could not even see the track'


If you read how pat fry got his current job, and that he was incompetent at mclaren to come to ferrari, we can well understand why Ferrari is in such a slump.More than luca and stefano , this guy should have been the first to be fired. In keeping him and making him direct things, ferrari have gone to dust. Kimi should just retire this year and come back next when James Alison is incharge of the garage. Fernando meanwhile can hover in the mid pack

F1 » F1: Raikkonen: ‘I can easily go a lot faster’


pat fry - the worst technical director ferrari ever had in recent times. He still is in charge of garage even though they have james allison. God knows why. Shows how political pat fry is and that is scary. The guy has done nothign but made ferrari eat dust over past few years since his arrival and still has a job. Before firing luca marmorini, stefano domenecali, luca montezemelo, first this guy should have been let go. He became technical director by making ferrari relieve Aldo Costa for making one tactical mistake (in abudhabi 2010) From there on, he has engaged in favoritism, supported fernando, killed massa's career (remember when fernando arrived in ferrari massa was almost evenly matched) and above all has been the missile that downed ferrari. To me he is the most political person on the grid (since Flavio is not in the grid anymore) and simply should be made to sit out. Kimi should just request they send this guy home and not come back until that is done. T
