Pirelli’s decision to change its tyres from the Canadian Grand Prix onwards will potentially have a far-reaching effect. Tyres are an integral part of the car’s design, affecting the aerodynamics and the suspension. With changes to the construction moving back towards the 2012 tyre specification, married to the current compounds, teams will be heading back to their computer screens to re-optimise their cars around the modified tyres

Sebastien Loeb will start the final day of Rally Argentina with a 39.8-second lead over Sebastien Ogier. A mistake on SS7 and puncture on SS8 left Ogier half a minute adrift of Loeb and convinced him to settle for second place . Ogier’s Volkswagen outpaced Loeb’s Citroen by half a second in their head-to-head on the evening superspecial that closed Friday’s action, but that made scant impact on the overall standings

Lewis Hamilton’s left-rear tyre failure during Saturday morning practice for the Bahrain Grand Prix, which led to his five-place grid penalty , was caused by metal debris, according to Pirelli. The problem led to suspension and gearbox damage, as confirmed by a Mercedes statement. This forced Mercedes to change Hamilton’s gearbox, which was being used for the fourth weekend of its run of five, leading to the penalty.

Sebastien Ogier feared his bid for Rally of Portugal victory would be ended by the technical problems that struck his Volkswagen on Sunday morning. The Frenchman had built up a lead of more than a minute over everyone but team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala heading into the final four stages, but a technical problem – subsequently diagnosed as a slipping clutch – meant he surrendered huge chunks of time on stage 12. With no service to separate that SS12 and the following 52-kilometre stage 13, and with Mikko Hirvonen rapidly closing, Ogier’s lead looked increasingly precarious.

Lotus is heading to next week’s second pre-season Formula 1 test at Barcelona confident there will be no repeat of the suspension dramas that forced it to withdraw last year. After once again showing promising form in the first test at Jerez, Lotus needs no reminding that its pre-season preparations in 2012 suffered a major setback when it had to quit running at Barcelona because of suspension failure

Jean-Eric Vergne – 14th: “I think the team has worked well so far this weekend to produce a car that seems a bit more competitive than in the past few races. It doesn’t mean much that I beat my team-mate today, because he had some difficulties in the first session. Maybe I could have got a bit more out of the car this afternoon, perhaps found a couple of tenths

Red Bull has made major changes to the set-up of Sebastian Vettel’s car ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in a bid to help his chances of charging through the field. The world champion will start from the pitlane at Yas Marina after his team elected to remove his RB8 from parc ferme overnight in the wake of the fuel cell problems that led to his exclusion from qualifying . The team claimed that it had chosen to take the car out of parc ferme to get to the bottom of why the FIA was unable to extract the mandatory one-litre sample of fuel it requires for post-qualifying checks.

The result leaves him 62 points behind race winner and new championship leader Sebastian Vettel with four rounds to go.

Brad Keselowski believes his Penske team-mate AJ Allmendinger faces a tough road ahead following his positive test for a stimulant, which led to his suspension from NASCAR. Speaking for the first time about the issue, Keselowski said that regardless of the result of a ‘B’ sample test, which Allmendinger has already requested, his team-mate’s reputation could be damaged beyond repair.

Marcel Fassler and Benoit Treluyer say that the Audi e-tron is faster and more flexible than the Ultra, but that the race performance will be heavily influenced by the fuel consumption of the hybrid. The 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours winners told AUTOSPORT that the Ultra has an advantage due to its optimised weight distribution but that the extra power and traction of the e-tron should make it ultimately faster as long as the drivers can make the e-tron’s 58 litre fuel capacity last for the same number of laps as the Ultra’s 60 litres. “They are very close and hopefully we can do the same number of laps with a bit better performance as we have the extra power on the exit of a few corners,” said Treluyer.
