Fabio Leimer won the GP2 Series season-opener at Sepang in Malaysia after passing longtime leader Stefano Coletti with less than five laps remaining to grab the victory. Rapax driver Coletti started from pole for the first Feature race of 2013, but had to defend stoutly from the fast-starting Leimer, who rocketed his Racing Engineering car from fourth to second by the first corner. This duo was over five seconds clear of the field by lap three, as front-row starter James Calado of ART got into a huge battle early on with Carlin’s Felipe Nasr and then Arden’s Mitch Evans

Caterham insists it is not concerned by suggestions it may need to change its exhaust layout before the start of the 2013 Formula 1 season. Lotus technical director James Allison told reporters on the opening day of Jerez testing that the design of the Caterham exhaust could be illegal. When asked for his comments on rival machinery, he said: “I have barely looked at anyone else’s car, but I saw a detail on the Caterham’s exhaust that I am not sure will survive until Melbourne…” It is understood that the matter relates to a small piece of bodywork at the exit of the Caterham exhaust, which directs the airflow towards the floor.

Audi’s two-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Benoit Treluyer believes that the equivalency formula between front-wheel and rear-wheel hybrid systems has given Toyota an advantage and that the rules should be changed. Toyota uses a super capacitor-based system on its V8 petrol-engined TS030 that sends regenerated power to the rear wheels, while Audi operates a flywheel in the e-tron quattro that powers the R18′s front wheels and gives the car its boost only when it reaches speeds above 120 km/h (through regulation). Hybrids are only allowed to activate after specified braking zones on a given circuit

Caterham does not think Heikki Kovalainen’s heavy crash in Friday practice in Montreal will disrupt its Canadian Grand Prix preparations, and is optimistic it can chase the midfield pack again in the race. Kovalainen slammed into the wall on the exit of Turn 9 just over halfway into free practice one, and missed the first half hour of practice two as a result

Formula 1 drivers will once again be banned from using DRS in the tunnel at the Monaco Grand Prix on safety grounds, AUTOSPORT can reveal.

November 13th, 2011
Sebastian Vettel was left lamenting his lost chance in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after retiring for the first time in the 2011 season. The Red Bull driver, starting from pole position, made a good start to keep his lead but spun off at Turn 2 following a puncture to his right rear tyre. Vettel drove back to the pits but his car was too damaged to continue and was forced to retire for the first time in 19 races

Jenson Button thinks that his hopes of victory in the Japanese Grand Prix may rest on him getting past Sebastian Vettel into the first corner at Suzuka. Although the McLaren has appeared to be a match for Red Bull Racing on single lap pace this weekend, the Friday long-run speed of Vettel and Mark Webber has left the team unsure about its chances in the race. And, allied to the difficulties that cars will have keeping close enough to their rivals ahead of the DRS detection point on the exit of 130R, Button is open-minded about his prospects – especially with tyre degradation expected to be so high.

Singapore Grand Prix organisers will work overnight on improving the kerbs at the Marina Bay circuit following a host of problems on the opening day of practice.
September 9th, 2011
Addax driver Charles Pic beat Coloni’s Luca Filippi to GP2 pole position at Monza, while the two drivers leading the fight for second in the championship could only make the 10th row of the grid. The front row men took up those positions early in the session, and then remained at the top of the pile as very few drivers improved on their second sets of tyres
April 16th, 2011
Alexander Rossi won the opening Formula Renault 3.5 race of the season at Motorland Aragon. The Fortec driver fought an intense battle for the lead with Daniil Move, after polesitter Robert Wickens (Carlin) locked up his left-front wheel and ran wide into Turn 1 at the start. Entering his fifth season in the category, Move (P1) used all of his experienced to offer a stiff defence of the lead
March 8th, 2011
The FIA has announced that its circuit commission will look into whether Formula 1 tracks can be changed to encourage more overtaking. With the return of KERS, more tyre performance variation and the introduction of an overtaking-focused adjustable rear wing system this year, the rulemakers hope that there will be more opportunities for passing in the 2011 F1 season than in recent years.
August 29th, 2010
Jenson Button labelled his exit from the Belgian Grand Prix as a ‘massive blow’ to his title ambitions, after saying he did not know what know Sebastian Vettel was up to. The reigning world champion was forced to retire from the race on lap 16 after he was sideswiped by Vettel under braking for the Bus Stop chicane when his Red Bull Racing rival lost control in their fight for second place
August 24th, 2010

Timo Scheider extended his DTM championship lead with a comfortable win at Barcelona on Sunday, as Audi put in a dominant performance. The reigning champion took the lead with a great start from fifth on the grid, and from there he eased away from the rest of the field.
September 12th, 2009
An inspired pit call from iSport helped Giedo van der Garde win a dramatic GP2 race at Monza this afternoon, giving the Dutch driver his first-ever feature race win and his third victory overall for the season. A sudden and prolonged downpour as the field was forming up on the dummy grid forced the start to be delayed by nearly 40 minutes, but once the race finally got underway the conditions began to improve and a dry line gradually emerged.
August 30th, 2009
Jarno Trulli was extremely disappointed with his exit from the Belgian Grand Prix after failing to turn his strong qualifying into a good result. Trulli, starting from second position, had to retire with a brake problem, but not before all his chances of a good race were gone when he made contact with Nick Heidfeld at the start. “I can’t say how disappointed I am with that race,” said Trulli
August 19th, 2009
Valencia Grand Prix officials have undertaken extensive safety modifications to their track ahead of this weekend’s second Formula 1 race at the venue.
