Renger van der Zande is set to make his prototype sportscar racing debut this year with the Lotus LMP2 squad in the World Endurance Championship. The Dutchman, who raced for Mercedes in the DTM last year, expects to compete in six WEC events with the team, alongside a campaign in the Formula 1-supporting Porsche Supercup which kicks off in Bahrain this weekend. “I’m actually quite proud that two months after my sudden departure from the DTM, I already have an interesting year lined up,” said van der Zande, who only found out in February that he was not being retained by Mercedes.

Williams is in no rush to appoint a replacement for chairman Adam Parr, who left the Grove-based team earlier this month.

Lotus’s motorsport director Claudio Berro said the partnership was an ideal way for the group to take a step up the endurance racing ladder after returning to the GT class with the Evora last year.

Jan Charouz – 24th: “It was fantastic, just to be on the track with people like Schumacher, Vettel and Alonso is incredible. It’s a bit different to testing because there are a lot more cars on track so you have to make space for others to not cause traffic. I think I did quite a good job as I was pretty close to Daniel which was the main goal, I don’t think five tenths are too much.

Jan Charouz declared himself highly satisfied to be little more than half a second adrift of HRT race driver Daniel Ricciardo as he made his grand prix weekend debut in Brazil. Czech 24-year-old Charouz had already tested with both HRT and Renault in last week’s Abu Dhabi sessions.

Vitantonio Liuzzi – 23rd: “It was good to be back in the car, I had missed this feeling these two weeks off so I wanted to be back behind the wheel as soon as possible. The morning session went quite well as we completed the entire programme.

Narain Karthikeyan – 21st: “We got the potential out of the car and beat both of the Virgins and I am proud of it. I was up on my teammate but made a small mistake. Nevertheless, I’m very happy with the way I drove and the position I achieved

Formula 1 teams have discussed the idea of increasing the sport’s qualifying limit to 110 per cent for next season, but the move appears unlikely to find any support. At a meeting of F1′s Sporting Working Group in Korea on Thursday, one of the ideas that was talked about was an opening up of the current 107 per cent limit. Such a move would help the outfits at the back of the grid avoid the risk of being sent home from races next year if a team like Red Bull Racing makes a big step forward in form

HRT is closing in on a deal for experienced designer Jorg Zander to head up its technical operations, as part of an effort to ramp up facilities in Munich. With HRT’s new owners Thesan Capital helping team principal Colin Kolles push forward with plans to help the outfit move forward, a rethink about its technical operations has been under way over the past few months. AUTOSPORT understands that an original plan to set up a design office in Brackley has been abandoned, and that the idea now is to base the operation out of Munich, which is just an hour’s drive away from the team’s race factory at Greding

Vitantonio Liuzzi – 19th: “We knew it would be a complicated race, especially in dry conditions, but I made a good start and gained a few positions quickly. We were ahead of our main rivals and, even though we knew beforehand that our pace wasn’t the best, we kept on fighting. I think we did a pretty good job, especially in the first stint of the race.
August 26th, 2011
Vitantonio Liuzzi – 22nd: “It is good to be back although we haven’t had the sessions we were hoping for. Today was a typical day at Spa with unpredictable weather and it is a shame that we couldn’t test as much as we wanted.
