Poooooooowwwwwweeeeerrrrrrr to the People & monkies

I think we might have been heard. Rory Reid confirms him and Chris will be on the main show from now on. British tabloids also state that their segments will be given more prominence with Evans just running the Studio bits. This might be how they slowly phase him out for next season.

After the bleak news that COTA is bleeding money after a great race but a not so great fan experience due to the inclement weather and the nearby Mexico GP, it is some what nice to hear that there might be a “new” team next season.

F1nance Snippet: Merc at a loss, again/Bernie looking to sell out F1nance Snippet: Merc at a loss, again/Bernie looking to sell out

Mercedes has dominated F1 since 2014. Before, it was just another middle pack team, at best. But if you where wondering what is the cost of success, well, all you have to do is take a look at their financial statements. So lets dive in to some quick numbers provided by Autosport:

The Racing Courts: Force India & Sauber Vs. F1 The Racing Courts: Force India & Sauber Vs. F1

It should come to no ones surprise that there is not much solidarity between F1 teams. Approving anything unanimously is almost impossible. This was always Bernie’s strong suit when negotiating the last Concorde Agreement back in 2012. Though the Teams where united at first, all it took was a wave of the dollar bills…

It’s no new headline that Renault have been evaluating a return as a full time invested team. Neither is it new that after dominating 2010-2013 they have endured 2 painful seasons, with Red Bull leading the charge against its once biggest ally. Unfortunately, rather than history or tradition, things have boiled down…

We already know HAAS F1 will be joining the circus in 2016, but with slots left on the grid or existing teams looking for further backing, there is a chance that a group of US investors might join in next year as well.

Numbers don't lie... Numbers don't lie...

I don’t think I have to add any sort of statement to Ferrari’s dismal 2014 season, and I’m more than glad to see them once again back on track to winning ways; though it seems to be more of a matter of luck & chance than by actual performance. Yet no matter how bad a season Ferrari have, they are simply the team that…

Fo11ow the Money 2015 Fo11ow the Money 2015

We’re just a few rounds into the championship and things are clearly heating up off-track. Lets try and take a look at some of the issues thus far that we’ll most likely be lapping off track throughout the season:

Besides regulation changes, the biggest swap on the grid was McLaren reuniting once again with Honda, while ditching the current dominating power plant by Mercedes. According to Ron Dennis, this was done because the engines have become so complex, that no customer team gets a chance to customize the engine as they see…

The Future of F1? The Future of F1?

What you are seeing is an actual concept presented by Ferrari at a strategy group meeting. They were not the only ones, with Mercedes and Red Bull presenting their own visions of how the car needs to evolve, but these teams neglected the chance to generate debate by not releasing said images.

As I watch the Aussie Open, this stunning camouflaged F1 car popped into my screen. This is Red Bulls contender for the coming season, and by the looks of it, the most beautiful car thus car in the grid. Breaking away from the long nose designs that have been seen thus far, we see how there interpretation of the rules…

...the. F2004, F2008, SF15t.I'll just keep the '08. I'm just not a fan of how the noses keep sticking out so much out in front of the front wing. It's just like putting on your pants, but leaving the tip of your wang sticking out through the fly.

Some drivers like complicated helmet designs, others are trivial about there inspirations while other are simplistic. Given how iconic the Martini lines are, Sussie Wolff's Helmet is a thing of understated beauty with its simplicity.
