Pirelli’s planned mid-season Formula 1 tyre tweaks are set to be much smaller than originally anticipated after the FIA ruled that changes will only be allowed on safety grounds. Sources have revealed that the governing body has told Pirelli that it is happy to accept – and is indeed keen for – alterations necessary to prevent a repeat of the rear tyre delaminations that have struck at the last few events. But, in a blow to outfits like Red Bull hoping further tweaks would help them overcome tyre difficulties they have faced, the FIA has made it clear it will not tolerate further changes aimed at reducing the number of pitstops or decreasing degradation.

Sebastian Vettel became one of only three men ever to have won three consecutive drivers’ championships in 2012.

Kyle Busch has apologised to Toyota for his criticism of the Japanese manufacturers’ engines during last weekend’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Dover. The Joe Gibbs Racing driver made some strong remarks on his radio following the conclusion of last Sunday’s event, where he was forced to make an extra stop for fuel with 11 laps to go, having dominated the event and leading 302 of 400 scheduled laps. Busch, who narrowly missed the Chase this year, eventually finished seventh and a lap behind winner Brad Keselowski, who stretched his fuel mileage further than his rivals to claim his second victory during the play-offs.

Andrea Dovizioso has decried what he believes is a general lack of recognition for his abilities within the MotoGP community.

Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali says his team must not carry the frustration of Fernando Alonso’s non-finish in Belgium into this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.

Lotus is confident it has the drivers and car to be quick at every track from now on, after finally delivering its first podium finish of the season in Bahrain. Despite having shown promising speed in the first few races of the campaign it had failed to finish in the top three until last weekend, when Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean both secured podium spots. Trackside operations director Alan Permane reckons that the result is proof that Lotus has now got its act together and is ready to show that its E20 can repeat that form at other races.

Roberto Merhi is hoping to prove that talent is still more valuable than money in motor racing by delivering victory in this weekend’s Macau F3 Grand Prix, after hitting out at the number of pay drivers that were signed up for this week’s rookie Formula 1 test. The Spaniard has delivered a sensational campaign this year – capturing the F3 Euro Series title and also securing the FIA F3 International Trophy ahead of the finale in Macau this weekend. But although focused on gunning for victory in Macau, he has expressed his frustration that there was no opportunity to join this week’s F1 rookie test because he does not have big-money sponsors behind him

Kris Meeke has criticised the organisers of Rally GB for the decision to run Thursday afternoon’s Clocaenog stage in fading light.

The Mini driver was running 12th on the road and began the test 24 minutes later than Sebastien Loeb, the first car through.

Stephane Peterhansel says it was his own errors that caused him to fall away from the fight for Dakar Rally victory, after coming home only fourth in this year’s event. X-Raid BMW driver Peterhansel, who has won the rally six times on a motorbike and three times in the car category, was battling for the lead with Volkswagen’s Carlos Sainz and Nasser Al-Attiyah for the first week before hitting a string of problems. Repeated punctures proved particularly costly, but Peterhansel said things began to go wrong when he missed a way point on stage six and lost several minutes trying to get back on the course.
