Jenson Button felt Heikki Kovalainen ‘got the balance wrong’ as the Caterham driver held off Button’s McLaren for most of the Monaco Grand Prix. Kovalainen got up to 13th amid the startline crash, while Button had to go wide to avoid Kamui Kobayashi’s flying Sauber and found himself behind the Caterham.

Red Bull Racing must make the most of this week’s test at Mugello to push on with improvements to its car if it is to keep fighting for wins, reckons Mark Webber. Even though Sebastian Vettel took victory in the Bahrain Grand Prix, Webber thinks that the evidence of the first four races points to just how much work Red Bull Racing needs to get through if it is to get itself back to the kind of form that helped it dominate last year

Red Bull Racing still needs to bring more to its car than improved qualifying pace if it is going to turn its RB8 into a race winner, reckons world champion Sebastian Vettel.

Ferrari’s shock victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix has blown open the fight for the Formula 1 world championship, reckons McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh. Ferrari has openly admitted that it is in damage limitation mode until a heavily updated car is unleashed for the Spanish Grand Prix, but Alonso’s brilliant performance to win at Sepang has now left him at the head of the title chase. And that has significantly increased the chances of Ferrari being able to join a championship battle that had appeared to be boiling down to a straight head-to-head between McLaren and Red Bull

Former MotoGP world champion Jorge Lorenzo says he fully backs the sport’s move towards lower-cost and lower-technology regulations, despite 2011 title-winner Casey Stoner saying he would consider quitting the series over it. MotoGP commercial chief Carmelo Ezpeleta has openly admitted that he sees the new Claiming Rule Teams regulation – under which lower-budget bikes with an element of production technology are permitted – as the world championship’s future, prompting criticism from Stoner. But Lorenzo reckons Ezpeleta’s plans are exactly what MotoGP needs.

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh has urged his outfit to go on the attack this winter to build a Red Bull beater, amid growing confidence over early progress with its 2012 challenger. Although Red Bull Racing dominated 2011, securing both championships before the end of the campaign, Whitmarsh sees no reason why his team cannot overhaul its rival to stop RBR claiming a third consecutive crown. “They have done a very good job in terms of performance and reliability, but it can change,” said Whitmarsh.

Ferrari will bring a modified version of its Red Bull Racing-style front wing to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, on the back of the bizarre problems that Felipe Massa encountered in India recently.

Red Bull has not ruled out the possibility of using team orders to help Mark Webber finish second in the drivers’ world championship this year, but says that for now both its drivers will remain free to race.

McLaren has vowed not to throw the towel in on its chances for the remainder of the season, despite a disappointing British Grand Prix weekend. Both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button struggled for pace at Silverstone, and their fortunes did not improve much in the race – as Hamilton was slowed by the need to save fuel and Button was forced to retire after his front right wheel was not fitted correctly at a pitstop. And after team principal Martin Whitmarsh openly admitted on Saturday that McLaren was simply not fast enough at the moment, he has reiterated that there is unlikely to be a dramatic change in fortunes for the next race in Germany

Williams technical director Sam Michael was put in a ‘difficult situation’ at the Grove-based outfit because he did not have the full support structure around him to use the best of his talents. That is the view of Mark Webber, who worked closely with his fellow Australian during his two-year stint at the team and says he is surprised that Michael has decided to leave the outfit. “Working with Sam, he was clearly a guy that did shoulder a lot of the responsibility,” explained Webber in Turkey on Thursday

Mercedes GP can target a repeat of its strong Shanghai performance in next week’s Turkish Grand Prix, providing it can once again make the most of the speed that it believes is locked away inside its W02 car. That is the view of Mercedes motorsport boss Norbert Haug, who thinks that what the team delivered in China – when Nico Rosberg led the race for many laps and fought for a podium finish – is achievable on a regular basis now. However, with the team having endured mixed fortunes in the first two races of the year, Haug believes that delivering such form consistently will be down to whether the Chinese GP performance is proof the outfit now understands how to get the best out of its car.

Hispania has confirmed that Tonio Liuzzi will be its second driver this year, as the Italian’s signing completes the 2011 Formula 1 line-up. Liuzzi was on the market after losing his Force India seat at the end of 2010.
March 6th, 2011
Christian Klien says he is still pushing to secure the second Hispania seat alongside Narain Karthikeyan, despite Tonio Liuzzi appearing to be the leading contender for the drive after his recent test for the team. HRT openly admitted that Liuzzi’s test at Catalunya was a step towards a possible race deal for the ex-Force India driver, but Klien – who drove for Hispania in several grands prix last year – says he has not given up on staying with the team and beating Liuzzi to the final vacant seat in the 2011 Formula 1 line-up. “My manager Roman Rummenigge is in permanent contact with the team’s management,” said Klien in an interview for his personal website

Rubens Barrichello insists he has not yet finalised a 2010 deal, despite reports that Williams is on the verge of announcing him as its new driver. The Brazilian is now widely expected to swap places with Nico Rosberg, who would move in the opposite direction from Williams to Brawn, joining Jenson Button. GP2 champion Nico Hulkenberg is tipped to step up from reserve duties to become Barrichello’s Williams team-mate.
