Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone believes Pirelli’s high-degradation tyres mean drivers once again have to ‘use their brains’ to win grands prix. Pirelli has been accused of preventing drivers from racing flat-out with its aggressive 2013 compounds, with Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz saying F1 was now “nothing to do with racing” as tyre conservation took precedence. But Ecclestone said taking care of tyres now was no different to looking after fragile machinery in previous eras, and that rather than deserving censure, Pirelli has improved the show by reintroducing a strategical element into modern F1.

Formula 1 is still as exciting in the cockpit this season as it has been in recent campaigns regardless of high tyre wear, claims Paul di Resta. Amid an ongoing debate about whether or not Pirelli’s high-degrading tyres have taken away some of the thrill of racing, di Resta is in no doubt that things are just as good this season as they have been before.
May 20th, 2013
Mercedes says there can be no grounds for disappointment over the reduced scope of Pirelli’s Formula 1 tyre revisions, despite having suffered with degradation more than most. As AUTOSPORT revealed last week , Pirelli’s revisions – due to come in to force from the Canadian Grand Prix – will now be minimal after the FIA made it clear any tweaks to the rubber could only be made on safety grounds. The governing body’s stance means that Pirelli will not be allowed to make alterations to the tyre specification aimed primarily at lessening tyre degradation or reducing the number of pit stops.

Nico Rosberg and Romain Grosjean are just two of the star guests who have been confirmed for the next FOTA Fans’ Forum that takes place in Montreal ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix.

There will also be a team panel to discuss the sport.

May 12th, 2013
Spanish Grand Prix poleman Nico Rosberg has admitted he was shocked at how quickly his Mercedes tumbled down the lap chart after his first pitstop. Rosberg led the opening stint of the race from pole, but his drop down the order began on lap 12, when Fernando Alonso passed him into Turn 1. He was further demoted by Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen soon after
May 11th, 2013
Pirelli now suspects that Paul di Resta’s tyre failure in practice for the Spanish Grand Prix was caused by a cut in the rubber. After overnight inspection of the remains of the left rear tyre that gave way on di Resta’s car, Pirelli suspects that the tread overheated after debris caused a small cut in it. The overheating, allied to the force being put through the rubber, caused the tyre to fail as di Resta exited the high-speed final corner at the Circuit de Catalunya

Paul Hembery: “The first race of the European season is always a significant one, with most of the teams introducing key upgrades.
May 9th, 2013
Formula 1 teams will be handed an extra set of tyres for the first 30 minutes of practice from the start of next year – but plans to limit them only to rookie drivers have been dropped completely. A proposal initiated by Force India for teams to be given extra sets of tyres for the first part of FP1 from this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix if they ran rookies was abandoned after failing to get the necessary support
May 7th, 2013
Force India team principal Vijay Mallya has praised the way that Paul di Resta has bounced back from his miserable end to 2012. Di Resta endured a difficult final spell to last season , where a chassis problem cost him form and he struggled to match the pace of team-mate Nico Hulkenberg. But having had time over the winter to regroup and work on the issues, di Resta has made a strong start to the current year, and came close to a maiden podium finish in Bahrain
May 2nd, 2013
Paul di Resta says 2013 has felt like a ‘fresh start’ to him, after admitting that the end of last year could not have been any worse. The Force India driver equalled the best result of his career with a fourth-place finish in Bahrain a fortnight ago, having battled for a podium place for much of the race
April 26th, 2013
Force India is under no illusions about the task it faces to keep rival McLaren behind in the championship standings this year. The Silverstone-based squad finished seventh last season and started the 2013 campaign with the goal of regaining the sixth spot it secured a year earlier.
April 24th, 2013
Nico Hulkenberg is still convinced that Sauber’s 2013 car has the potential to be a regular top-10 runner and that his switch into the squad has not been futile. The German admitted at the end of last year that moving from Force India to the Swiss team had not been an easy choice , saying he had been swung by Sauber being “very strong for podiums” in the early stages of 2012.
April 21st, 2013
Paul di Resta refused to be too downbeat despite being denied what would have been his first Formula 1 podium just six laps from the finish of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Briton’s two-stop strategy, married to a third-row starting berth, meant he was a permanent fixture at the front of the race, even leading for three laps.

Sebastian Vettel breezed to his second victory of the 2013 Formula 1 season in the Bahrain Grand Prix. The world champion thrust his Red Bull to the front amid spectacular early dicing, then left the action behind
April 20th, 2013
Paul di Resta believes Force India can repeat its strong performance from last year’s Bahrain Grand Prix in this year’s race. Di Resta and team-mate Adrian Sutil have already scored the team’s best grid result of the campaign – with fifth and sixth at Sakhir – and Force India’s strong long-run pace means hopes are high for the race. But di Resta thinks the key to delivering on that potential is Force India being allowed to run at its own pace in the race, and not having its chances compromised by getting stuck behind slower cars.
April 19th, 2013
The FIA and Formula One Management both insist they have no qualms about the 2013 Bahrain Grand Prix going ahead, despite late pleas for it to be called off. A number of politicians urged the FIA and FOM to cancel the race because of the political situation in the Gulf state, where isolated protests continue
