Way to rich.
i searched it for Legard, I swear!
So it's 2011, and all the teams are gearing up to launch their new cars.
HRT and FIndia are set ti run the old chassis at the first tests, Ferrari, Suaber, and Lotus-Renault have stated a "Late January" launch for their respective challengers, with STR coming on Feb 1st
Only 9 weeks to go till Bahrain, needs to hurry up and get here!!
they should get Chandhok to replace Legard that would be awesome, Chandhok is always good fun in front of the camera
Im more excited about next season than this one tbh. New rules sound good tho I wonder how moveable wings will effect this years and if they'll remain next. Hopefully some of these rules like aero effect under the car being more important than wings will change the cars enough to bring excitment to the pretty boring newer circuits of the last few years!
2011 Car launch dates so far:
Sauber-Ferrari C30: 31 January in Valencia
Renault R31: 31 January in Valencia
Toro Rosso-Ferrari STR6: 1 February in Valencia
McLaren-Mercedes MP4-26: 4 February in Berlin
Ferrari: Final week of January in Maranello
Why is everyone launching in Valencia? Are they all chipping in for the flights as part of the new budget-caps? I suppose the end of Jan is a nice time to be a racing journalist.
They are in Valencia anyways for testing their cars after the winter-break where they aren't allowed to test-track.
It's been like this for a decade allready.
Karthikeyan signed up by HRT
Senna dropped by HRT
DC has replaced Brundle, and Brundle has replaced Legard. YES!
Best news of the year
HRT could be suing Chandhok
If they do I hope they all die in a flamming ball of fuel and tires. Chandhok was probably the most interesting driver in the sport last year! Especially bad news when David Coul(re)tard gets Chandhok's seat elsewhere
Confirmed! Brundle and DC in, Legard out!
HRT are just constantly embarassing themselves - they don't have the financial clout to stay in F1. I mean come-on, pulling out of FOTA?
I think pulling out of FOTA was an interesting move. If what is claimed about red bull is true FOTA has failed to step in and protect small teams that don't have a big budget. This means that big teams will have influence to do what they want when they want (Look at the FIA and Ferrari). How many times have has something happened but remained unchallanged due to politics with in FOTA or the sport in general? Why be part of a body that won't represent you? much better sucking up to the devil for favours ie. Bernie.
And lo, the gospel word was passed down. Coulthard's a big-jawed moron, but that's got to be better than Legard.
/me waits for hilarious PF1 quotes article.
Do you think DC will now be doing the pit walk or will they allow MB to still do the pit walk while DC covers the comm box?
I wonder if DC will do the pit walk so he can stay on the ground as part of the "3 Team".
And there was much rejoicing:
F1 HD on the BEEB!!!!
Ah - cloud to the silver lining - the Ejit's back.
