  • Lapped drivers will be allowed to unlap themselves under safety car conditions
  • If in defending his position a driver leaves the racing line, he will not be allowed to retake it (could be a big change)
  • Drivers will not be able to leave the track without good reason (e.g. cutting chicanes during in-laps to save time/fuel)
  • Use of helium in tyre air guns banned

The US and Bahrain GPs are both included in the current calendar after the FIA WMSC meeting this morning.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/form...e/16067944.stm

Quote:
Formula 1 bosses have announced an unchanged calendar for 2012, despite continuing doubts over the races in the United States and Bahrain. The revived US race, due to take place on a new track in Austin, Texas, had been given a deadline of this week to raise money to pay the sanctioning fee.

Meanwhile, there are concerns about the wisdom of racing in Bahrain next April because of continuing civil unrest. A bomb exploded outside the British embassy there only on Sunday.

Despite that, the race was included on an unchanged 20-race calendar issued by a meeting of the World Council of governing body the FIA in Delhi on Wednesday.

Disappointed that BBC didn't manage to hang on to at least some of the commentators, makes me worried for who they will actually have (if Leggard is back I might just buy Sky).

Updated OP with Sky/BBC live broadcasts.

Apparently it allows ~30% faster rotation of the gun, but the FIA has decided the cost wasn't worth the benefit

Pic finished a fairly unspectacular 4th in last years' GP2 series; he drove for Virgin at the young drivers' test after the Abu Dhabi GP a few weeks ago and subsequently was confirmed at Marussia for next season.

Apparently the helium allows up to 30% faster rotation speeds, so if it takes half a second to undo a wheelnut with air, I guess that could be reduced to as little at 0.35s using helium.

Lotus have announced that Romain Grosjean will partner Kimi for at least the start of next season; will be interesting to see where Kubica fits in (if anywhere) when fit.
Quote:
Enstone, 9th December 2011

Lotus Renault GP and TOTAL are delighted to announce that Romain Grosjean will race alongside 2007 world champion Kimi Räikkönen next season. The two companies are also pleased to confirm that they have renewed their sponsorship agreement for another year.

Well it's goodbye Alguersuari and Buemi, hello Ricciardo and Vergne at Toro Rosso. Slightly harsh on the Spaniard in particular; perhaps there'll be a place for him with Pedro at HRT?
Quote:
Toro Rosso have named Daniel Ricciardo and Jean-Eric Vergne as their drivers for the 2012 Formula 1 season.

Sebastien Buemi and Jaime Alguersuari make way as the team name an all-new line-up for the first time since their debut in 2006. Australian Ricciardo, 22, is a Red Bull test and reserve driver and has raced for HRT this year. French driver Vergne, 21, has tested for Red Bull and took part in practice for Toro Rosso three times this year.

Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost said: "One has to remember that when Toro Rosso was established in 2005, it was done so with the intention of providing a first step into Formula 1 for the youngsters in the Red Bull junior driver programme. "It is therefore part of the team's culture to change its driver line-up from time to time in order to achieve this goal."

Good to see Nico back, hopefully FI can give them a better car this year. That only leaves two seats left (Williams and HRT) and plenty of drivers to fill them.

Now that we're in to 2012 officially, there's only 34 days to go until testing begins

McLaren are the first to announce their car launch details, with the MP4-27 breaking cover on the 1st February, well before the Jerez test. Mercedes however will not be trialling the W03 until Catalunya, which Nico Rosberg believes won't be an issue.

Elsewhere, Andrew Benson reports that Rubens could be back in line to stay with Williams next season, according to his sources. He notes that Patrick Head grew tired of the veteran's complaints, so his departure from the sport has removed at least one barrier.

Good spot, I'll add a section about the launches to the OP.

In the news today, Sebastien Buemi has been "promoted" to reserve Red Bull driver for the season, and there are reports that some of the teams are working on new separate Concorde agreements with Bernie. The FIA has also clarified the "no moving back to the racing line" rule:
Quote:
But from 2012, the actual regulations now declare: "More than one change of direction to defend a position is not permitted.

"Any driver moving back towards the racing line, having earlier defended his position off line, should leave at least one car width between his own car and the edge of the track on the approach to the corner," the rule goes on.

Was about to post that myself. It certainly looks interesting, Google Translate did a humorous job on the discussion ("Now the Lotus-Renault is preparing another devilry", "On the brakes when the driver steps on your foot on the left" etc.) and it sounds like it will be beneficial. Just how much so will be seen at Jerez.

As expected, Ferrari have also been working on a similar system according to Stefano.
Quote:
"What you are talking about, is more related to having stability under braking," explained Domenicali. "It is a system that I know there have been some documents in writing between the FIA and the teams.

"We are waiting for the final confirmation if this kind of devices will be acceptable or not. But for sure we are looking around these sorts of devices to see if they contribute to a performance. But we need to wait and see what will be the reaction to the FIA on that."

True, edited OP to suit. Who are we betting on then, T-Mobile?

Bit of (possibly) good news for anyone with Virgin TV; they've confirmed that Sky F1 will be coming to service, although it sounds like it'll be part of the sports pack.
Quote:
Virgin Media has confirmed that it will carry Sky Sports' new bespoke Formula 1 channel when it launches this season.

Sky Sports F1 will be available alongside the rest of the Sky Sports package for Virgin customers.

Good to see Bruno has got a race drive this year, hopefully we'll see him at least spanking Maldonado. That leaves Barichello out in the cold, and with just one seat left open (at HRT), this might be the first season in 20 without Rubinho on the grid.

Force India have also announced details of their Silverstone launch on February 3rd, added both to OP.

Spanish newspaper Marca is claiming that the second HRT seat will cost a driver at least €6m...that's obviously the best way to get a quality driver

That was a very good talk by Steve, the amount of motorsport on terrestrial TV is frankly appalling, and is only going to get worse.

Very good news coming from Austin, with the circuit chiefs saying construction is back on track for completion in August. I'm particularly looking forward to that race.
