May 22nd, 2013
Northern Irish Formula 3 racer Will Buller has parted company with the T-Sport team. Buller, who has entered the British F3 International Series with Fortec Motorsport , took a best result of fourth in the opening four rounds of the F3 European Championship with T-Sport’s ThreeBond/Nissan-powered Dallara. This has come as a disappointment, after the combination flew during pre-season tests at Barcelona and Monza.

Red Bull still wants Formula 1 tyre supplier Pirelli to change its tyres for the remainder of the season, even though it triumphed at the Bahrain Grand Prix .

AJ Allmendinger admits that he is having to work to keep his nerves in check as he prepares for his first single-seater race since 2006, despite an encouraging start to his IndyCar weekend at Barber Motorsports Park. The Champ Car race winner, who moved to NASCAR in 2007, finished both of Friday’s IndyCar practice sessions in the top 10 , but said that he is still far from feeling comfortable. “I thought I was going to throw up right before the first session,” he said.

February 5th, 2013
Mark Webber believes Red Bull will have to work on reducing understeer on its RB9 after the first day of pre-season Formula 1 testing at Jerez. The Australian said that the new car felt similar to the 2012 RB8 that won both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships, but he added that the team had areas to work on before testing resumes on Wednesday morning. “The car was very understeery today, so we need to improve that tonight and get it a little more responsive,” Webber told reporters at Jerez
January 24th, 2013
Pirelli chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera would be delighted if his company delivers a repeat of the unpredictable racing witnessed at the start of 2012. The wide-open start to last season, featuring seven different winners from the first seven races, drew criticism in some quarters, with the tyres’ behaviour famously described by Michael Schumacher as ‘like driving on raw eggs’
December 31st, 2012
Lotus was nothing if not bold in its 2012 driver selection, eschewing any hint of a ‘safe pair of hands’ approach and signing two men who hadn’t raced in Formula 1 since 2009. On paper, the combination of a former world champion with 157 grand prix starts to his name and a man with five feeder series titles on his CV plus a smattering of F1 experience shouldn’t have prompted any frowns.
October 7th, 2012
Pastor Maldonado says he never lost faith in himself or his Williams team after finally returning to the points in the Japanese Grand Prix. The Venezuelan famously scored his maiden Formula 1 victory in the Spanish Grand Prix in May , but then went eight races without scoring a single point.
September 28th, 2012
Mercedes has confirmed Lewis Hamilton has signed a three-year deal to drive for the German squad from next year. The Briton, whose move was expected after McLaren announced Sergio Perez for 2013 earlier on Friday morning, will drive alongside Nico Rosberg, replacing seven-time champion Michael Schumacher at the team. Mercedes did not specify what Schumacher’s plans were.

Adrian Newey expects engine performance to become the dominant differentiator between teams when the new V6 turbo engines are introduced in 2014. The Red Bull chief technical officer fears that the combination of tighter chassis rules and potential differences between the performance of the engines could lead to one group of teams sharing one supplier having a big advantage.
August 18th, 2012
NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers have given mixed reviews to the new tyre specification Goodyear has brought to Michigan in an attempt to prevent the blistering that occurred at the venue earlier this year.
August 15th, 2012
Qualifying is no less important a determining factor in who wins races in Formula 1 in 2012 than it has been in previous seasons. There have been suggestions that the combination of high-degradation Pirelli rubber and the relative ease of overtaking have reduced the impact of Saturday afternoons, but the statistics suggest this not to be the case.
July 28th, 2012
Michael Schumacher said that Mercedes just has to accept that it will not be competitive in the Hungarian Grand Prix, after the team’s worst showing of the season in qualifying. Schumacher will start down in 17th position, four places behind his team-mate Nico Rosberg. Schumacher’s flying lap was compromised by dust left on track by Williams driver Pastor Maldonado, but the seven-time world champion said that he?
July 8th, 2012
Valentino Rossi credited his late ride to sixth in the German Grand Prix to his early realisation that he had to wait for the right moment to attack. Rossi was part of a four-way fight for sixth in the early stages of the race, but was often toward the rear of a pack that involved LCR Honda’s Stefan Bradl, works Ducati team-mate Nicky Hayden and the satellite Pramac Ducati of Hector Barbera
July 7th, 2012
Qualifying for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone has been red-flagged midway through Q2 due to heavy rain at the circuit. The session started in damp but seemingly improving conditions, only for a downpour to set in just after Q1 had finished. Although Q2 got underway on schedule, there were soon exhortations from drivers to halt the session amid concerns about the level of standing water.
July 1st, 2012
Pastor Maldonado believes that he has a better understanding of Pirelli’s 2012 Formula 1 tyres than he did with last year’s rubber. This season’s tyres have been the subject of much discussion, as teams battle to get them to work. That has resulted in fluctuating form throughout the field.
June 10th, 2012
Charles Pic – 20th: “First of all, I’m happy to finish the race – my first time here – and although it has been a tough weekend, I think from the perspective of the team, and me personally, it has been a good experience to learn where we need to improve. Our pace here has not been good compared to our closest two competitors, so we have to understand more about why that was.
June 1st, 2012
Reigning NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart remains confident he can find the right chemistry with new crew chief Steve Addington, despite an inconsistent run of late. Although Stewart is still in the top 10 in the drivers’ standings, his wins and top five finishes have been punctuated by lacklustre races and incidents.
May 11th, 2012
Mercedes CEO Nick Fry says he will be disappointed if the Brackley-based team does not win again this season.
April 22nd, 2012
Paul di Resta says his sixth place in the Bahrain Grand Prix proves that Force India was absolutely right to sit out Q3 on Saturday. The Scot reckoned a giant-killing qualifying result might have been possible given his pace at Sakhir, but that it was better to save a set of fresh tyres for the race so he could pull off the two-stop strategy that took him to sixth – equalling his Formula 1 career best. “We played our cards right in qualifying by saving a set of tyres,” di Resta.
