May 7th, 2013
Ferrari protege Raffaele Marciello believes that the experience gained in last year’s Formula 3 European Championship will prevent him from missing out on the title again.
April 24th, 2013
Mercedes will have switched more than half its workforce on to its 2014 Formula 1 car by May, says the firm’s motorsport boss Toto Wolff. With the 2014 F1 regulations featuring the biggest technical changes in many years, as the current V8 engines are replaced by 1.6-litre V6 turbos, teams face a balancing act deciding how many resources to allocate to the next car without compromising their current campaign. In an interview with the official F1 website, Wolff made it clear that 2014 will shortly have equal resources to developing the present W04

Porsche has confirmed that Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas will be part of its LMP1 driver line-up at next year’s Le Mans 24 Hours in the wake of speculation linking Red Bull Formula 1 driver Mark Webber to the German manufacturer. The announcement is no surprise as Bernhard and Dumas, whose loan period at Porsche sister marque Audi came to an end last year, were always set to be part of its driver squad when it mounts its first bid for outright Le Mans honours since 1998.

Fernando Alonso believes it is too early to assume Ferrari will be fighting for victory in every race despite a commanding win in the Chinese Grand Prix.

The race debut of the new coupe version of the DeltaWing experimental prototype has been set back from next month’s Laguna Seca American Le Mans Series round. ALMS founder Don Panoz, who has taken full control of the DeltaWing project for this season, had wanted the new car to race at round three of the US series at the California track. The problems with the Mazda-based Elan engine, which has replaced last year’s Nissan powerplant, at the Sebring 12 Hours last month have forced the DeltaWing Racing Cars squad to refocus its programme
April 11th, 2013
Mark Webber says he is eager to move on from the Red Bull ‘multi 21′ team orders controversy, and that it will not cloud decisions about his Formula 1 future. He dismissed any suggestion he was thinking of quitting F1 now, and made it clear he would stick to his traditional timetable of discussing a new Red Bull contract over the summer
April 4th, 2013
Force India will have to compromise either its late-2013 performance or next year’s car, reckons Paul di Resta, as he does not think his team can sustain dual development programmes. With Formula 1 switching to the very different V6 turbo-powered rules next season, there will be scant carry-over between this year’s cars and their successors.
March 19th, 2013
The 8Star Motorsports squad is gearing up for the arrival of the new United SportsCar Racing championship in 2014 with a move into the American Le Mans Series LMPC class and an expansion of its Grand-Am attack. Florida-based 8Star, founded by Venezuelan amateur driver Enzo Potolicchio to compete in Grand-Am this season, will next month take delivery of a second Pratt & Miller-built Coyote-Chevrolet DP, which is due to start racing in the summer.

The M-Sport World Rally squad will race in the 2013 British GT Championship as it prepares for Bentley’s return to sportscar racing later in the year, AUTOSPORT magazine has revealed. Ford’s long-time World Rally Championship partner will field a solo 2013-spec Audi R8 LMS ultra for former MG factory driver Warren Hughes and Dutch amateur Rembert Berg, starting at the opening round of the series at Oulton Park on April 1. M-Sport will build and run the new Bentley Continental GT3 racer , due to hit the track at the end of the summer, and has put together a programme in the British series in order to learn about circuit racing

Formula Renault 3.5 champion Robert Frijns will drive for the Trident GP2 team in next week’s test at Jerez. The Dutchman, who is yet to announce his plans for this year after securing the FR3.5 crown last season, will be joined at the team by Frenchman Nathanael Berthon.
February 18th, 2013
Danica Patrick’s team boss Tony Stewart has warned that her historic pole position for the Daytona 500 should not increase expectations for Patrick’s first full NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Stewart-Haas Chevrolet driver Patrick became the first female polesitter in Cup and Daytona 500 history when she held off four-time champion Jeff Gordon to secure the top spot on Sunday. Patrick has been under intense media scrutiny throughout her top-level career
February 17th, 2013
Nico Hulkenberg is a “huge asset” to Sauber based on his first test for the Swiss outfit at Jerez last week, according to chief designer Matt Morris. The ex-Force India driver was pleased with the high-speed handling of the new C32 and positive about the team’s prospects for the season. He also impressed the team with both his pace and his overall approach
February 4th, 2013
Former Toro Rosso technical head Giorgio Ascanelli has joined Formula 1 brake supplier Brembo. Ascanelli will become the firm’s new chief technical officer. The Italian ran Toro Rosso’s design team from 2007 to ’12, when he parted company with the squad in the summer
January 25th, 2013
The attention of Formula 1 fans and media may have been focused pretty much entirely on developments at Mercedes this week, but behind the scenes the ramifications of its shake-up are only just starting to reverberate around the grid. The F1 business is a fairly small community, with only a finite number of top-class technical talents available to be shared among the top teams. It means that if a technical director from Team A is poached by Team B, then Team A has to react swiftly and either promote from within or go off and poach Team C’s top man.
January 16th, 2013
Ferrari has no concerns that Felipe Massa’s resurgent form in Formula 1 will create tension with Fernando Alonso. The Brazilian driver bounced back from a difficult start to 2012 to end the campaign as one of the highest-scoring drivers, and even outqualified Alonso at a few races.

Being a Formula 1 tyre supplier can be a thankless task. Whereas predecessor Bridgestone was content to remain quietly efficient and under the radar, Pirelli has been determined from the outset to improve F1′s spectacle
December 27th, 2012
Many have hailed Fernando Alonso as the driver of the 2012 Formula 1 season, taking a car that was demonstrably not the fastest to within a few points of the world championship. His three victories in the Malaysian, European and German Grands Prix helped him to a 40-point lead at one point, but he wasn’t quite able to hold off the charging Sebastian Vettel late on
December 24th, 2012
Lotus boss Eric Boullier believes his team will deliver a much stronger Formula 1 campaign in 2013, even if it starts the season with a car that is only as quick as last year’s. The Frenchman is convinced that the progress that his drivers have made, allied to a better technical understanding among the engineers, means the team can move forward even without technical gains. “I would be very happy to start the season with the same car performance we had last year relative to everyone else,” Boullier told AUTOSPORT.
