Not Lewis Hamilton: Ex-F1 driver reveals one racer who can ‘compare’ to Max Verstappen

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 09:42

Ex-Formula 1 driver Giancarlo Fisichella believes Charles Leclerc is the only driver who compares to reigning World Champion Max Verstappen, with the Dutchman being the sort of racer who’s “born once every 20 years”.

Verstappen is undoubtedly a phenomenal talent, with him currently breaking records with ease despite being only 25 years old.

Last season alone, the Red Bull star broke the records for most wins in a season and most points accumulated in a campaign, as he cruised to a second consecutive title.

Unless something catastrophic happens, the likelihood is that he’ll claim a third consecutive title this year, putting him amongst the likes of Ayrton Senna and Niki Lauda as a three-time World Champion.

What makes it all even more astonishing, is that whilst he’s still incredibly young, 2023 is already his ninth season at the pinnacle of motorsport, due to having made his debut in 2015 when aged just 17.

Verstappen is what’s referred to in motorsport as an ‘alien’, a driver who is simply able to do things that others cannot.

He will go down as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all-time, with his raw ability alone arguably putting him alongside the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Michael Schumacher.

Fisichella believes Verstappen is a “complete” driver, with only Leclerc being similar to him in regard to their talent.

“He goes fast in the wet, in the dry, in the qualifying flying lap and in the race,” Fisichella told Gazzetta.

“He is complete. If we talk about precocity, considering what he has done and is doing at his age, he is even ahead of the greats of the past who preceded him.

“Only Charles Leclerc can be compared to him in this respect. And in any case, a driver like Verstappen is born once every 20 years.”

When he was signed by Toro Rosso (known now as AlphaTauri) for the 2015 F1 season, it turned several heads.

Verstappen incredibly made the leap from European F3 to F1, with Toro Rosso having put the Dutchman in the car during FP1 at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix.

The Red Bull family knew what he was capable of, something he proved when he claimed his first win in what was his very first race for Red Bull after making the switch at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix from the sister team.

“Verstappen has been a talent ever since he raced in karts, he arrived in Formula 1 at 17 and won his first Grand Prix as soon as he moved from Toro Rosso to Red Bull, at 18 years and 7 months,” Fisichella added.

“What do you want to say to someone like that? At first he crashed, he made some inexperienced mistakes, while now he is almost never wrong. He has acquired an incredible consistency of performance, eliminating the weak points.”

Red Bull set for ‘handsome payday’ if they sell ‘irrelevant’ F1 team

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 07:02

Despite Red Bull having only recently rejected the idea of selling sister side AlphaTauri, Formula 1 business expert Mark Gallagher is expecting the Austrians to put the Faenza-based team up for sale, potentially for $500 million.

Since the start of the new aerodynamic regulations, AlphaTauri have fallen-off considerably, with the outfit typically being towards the back of the field nowadays.

If you go back just a few years, though, the sister team were often battling comfortably amongst the points, with Pierre Gasly in particular having been a shining star for the side.

Even he struggled last season, though, with the Frenchman having jumped ship to Alpine.

Whilst Yuki Tsunoda has improved considerably this season, AlphaTauri are still nowhere near being consistent points finishers, with the side sitting ninth in the Constructors’ Championship.

Another issue is that unlike in the past, AlphaTauri aren’t developing many Red Bull junior drivers, with the exception of Yuki Tsunoda.

Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen, and Daniel Ricciardo are just a few of the names who developed amongst the sister team, before becoming successful drivers for Red Bull.

The whole concept of Red Bull having a sister team was to offer a place to young drivers to adjust to racing in F1, before making the move into the main team.

The last driver to move from AlphaTauri to Red Bull was Alex Albon in 2019; however, he was dropped at the end of 2020.

With that in mind, Gallagher believes that AlphaTauri has lost its “relevance”, suggesting that it’s time for Red Bull to sell the outfit.

“The world has changed, Formula 1 has changed under new ownership. They can sell that team for a great deal of money,” Gallagher said on the Flat Chat Podcast.

“I personally will be surprised if that team belongs to Red Bull by the time the 2026 era of regulations start. I think it’ll have been moved on by then.

“That AlphaTauri brand doesn’t look like it’s achieving its goals and doesn’t seem to have relevance as a business.”

Gallagher also noted how when Albon was dropped at the end of 2020, Red Bull opted to sign Sergio Perez from Racing Point, rather than promote one of their drivers from AlphaTauri.

At the time, Pierre Gasly was racing for AlphaTauri having been dropped by Red Bull during 2019, whilst another ex-Red Bull driver Daniil Kvyat was being replaced by Tsunoda at the conclusion of the season.

No driver was in a position to replace Albon, with Gasly having effectively been told that he’d never race for Red Bull again.

If Red Bull never planned to promote Gasly again, why did they return him to AlphaTauri in the first place, rather than promote a junior driver to take Albon’s spot in the sister team.

Gallagher ultimately believes Red Bull are spending a “sizeable amount” on drivers who will never be good enough, another reason why selling the side makes sense in his eyes.

“The last time I looked, pre-Covid, Red Bull put $83 million into the team,” Gallagher said.

“That’s a sizeable amount of money to be throwing into a team to develop drivers who will never actually make the grade.”

Should Red Bull decide to finally put AlphaTauri up for sale, Gallagher believes they could do so for potentially $500 million, given the current popularity of F1.

Gallagher believes new CEO Oliver Mintzlaff could be tempted by this, given how “handsome” the money from the sale would look in the company’s account.

“You can imagine that someone like Oliver Mintzlaff will be looking at it thinking ‘We don’t need this, it’s surplus to requirements’,” said Gallagher.

“I think there will be a really handsome payday for Red Bull.”

F1 CEO breaks silence on Lewis Hamilton retirement rumours

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 05:00

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has rejected rumours that Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton could be set to retire from Formula 1 amid speculation over his future.

The Brit has made no secret of his wish to secure a record-breaking eighth world title before he retires from the sport, searching for the best team to provide him with a shot at the championship.

Hamilton had been on course to secure a historic victory in 2021 but was denied the moment in a last lap shootout against Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.

The Brit and Mercedes are currently in negotiations over his future at the team, with his contract set to expire at the end of the 2023 season.

With no deal between Hamilton and the Silver Arrows in sight, the former world champion has been linked with a possible move to Ferrari.

The Daily Mail reported that Hamilton has begun talks with the Italian team through his close ally Ferrari executive chairman John Elkann.

“I’d like him to stay in the sport 100 per cent, 100 per cent… 1,000 per cent!” Domenicali told the Daily Mail.

“I don’t want to give Lewis any advice because that would be disrespectful to Toto [Wolff]. And Lewis has such deep experience that I’m sure he doesn’t need my input because he knows what he wants.

“He loves our sport. He has been in it since he was a child. Now his role in F1 is getting bigger than an F1 world champion, given the way he gets involved in a lot of things outside the sport and takes an active role in society. He takes us towards new dimensions.

Max Verstappen reveals which circuit he wants to return to from 2020 season

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 04:29

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen has revealed that he would like Formula 1 to return to Tuscany for another race after the venue was used for a one-off event in the Covid-hit 2020 season.

The Mugello Circuit played host to the race in Florence, with the event bearing an important historical context for Formula 1, as it was the 1000th Grand Prix for Scuderia Ferrari.

Verstappen’s wish to return to the circuit might be down to his competitive nature, as the Dutchman has unfinished business at the track, being one of eight cars to DNF during the Grand Prix.

Despite qualifying in P3, Verstappen’s race ended on lap one after the Dutchman, Pierre Gasly, Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean all came together.

Verstappen’s car was beached in the gravel trap, while Gasly had to retire due to damage he sustained.

Should Formula 1 expand the calendar further or make changes to their current race schedule in Italy, Verstappen would be keen to see Mugello return.

“Well, bring Mugello back then,” Verstappen told

“Of course, I haven’t raced that much there yet, just two corners. But the circuit is really nice to drive on.”

Verstappen was also open to a race at Laguna Seca, a race track in central California, which currently hosts an IndyCar race.

The addition of Laguna Seca would play into Formula 1’s embrace of the US market, as the sport enjoys a growing fanbase across America.

“We can certainly do that, we are also driving in Monaco, right? There are some nice options in America, though,” he said.

“I also like Virginia, for example, although that track might be less in an F1 car and more something for a GT. Road America is also very nice, so there are a few tracks you can go to.

“Road America is of course reasonably fast for F1. But like any track that holds Formula 1 races, they would then obviously have to make certain adjustments to the track.”

Logan Sargeant issued warning after disastrous start

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 02:00

Logan Sargeant has had an tough start to the 2023 season, his first in Formula 1, as he remains pointless after five races.

While Sargeant wasn’t expected to be fighting for podiums in the Williams, the team would have hoped he could be on the same level as his teammate Alex Albon.

While Albon secured the sole point for Williams in Bahrain, finishing in P10, Sargeant hasn’t come close, consistently finishing in the bottom five positions on the grid.

 Williams team principal James Vowles has now intervened, demanding that the American step up or risk losing his seat at the end of the season.

“Logan’s here because he’s quick, and he is quick, he can deliver,” Vowles told 

“But he has to start by just getting things controlled, delivering cleanly.

“In both qualifying sessions in Baku he made it to Q2. That’s the consistency, and that’s what we’re looking for.

“What I’ve already explained to him is ‘you’re quick enough’. And then, ‘use Q2 to build your experience by almost double from what you’re doing at the moment’.

“And that’s what you’ll start seeing him deliver on. You’ll see that he’ll slowly edge up.

“I’m not expecting him to be on Alex’s pace. Also, he’s had a string of races he’s never even been to before.

“But even [in Miami], disappointed as he was, there was just three-tenths between him and Alex [in Q1]. It just so happened that was seven cars. But three-tenths, that’s how close it’s getting now.”

While Vowles was supportive of Sargeant’s Miami performance, accepting that it wasn’t the rookie’s fault, having made contract with Nyck de Vries.

The team principal wants the rookie to use the “invaluable” opportunity he has to get on form and bag crucial points for Williams.

Lando Norris reveals how Oscar Piastri is different to Daniel Ricciardo

Wed, 05/24/2023 - 01:00

Lando Norris has endured a challenging start to the 2023 Formula 1 season, mostly due to the car he’s had to drive in the opening five rounds of the season.

McLaren’s 2023 challenger is certainly not one of the strongest cars on the grid, with the MCL60 being in desperate need of development.

This was highlighted at the recent Miami Grand Prix, where Norris and team-mate Oscar Piastri were eliminated in Q1.

McLaren’s disappointing car certainly hasn’t helped Norris assert his position as the team’s lead driver, with Piastri having done incredibly well despite the issues with the car.

The rookie was the first McLaren driver to reach Q3 this season and currently has just six points less than Norris in the Drivers’ Championship, suggesting that Norris will be challenged to be the top McLaren driver this season.

Norris has openly admitted that Piastri is “very fast” and is “pushing” him more than the likes of Daniel Ricciardo, who the rookie replaced.

“He’s a lovely guy, down to earth, a normal guy, a hard worker,” Norris said in Miami.

“So it’s good fun. Different, I guess, to Daniel [Ricciardo], I feel like a bit of a contrast of Australian, but still good fun.

“He’s very fast at the same time, so he’s probably been pushing me a little bit more than in the past couple years.”

Like Norris, Piastri is destined to achieve great things, with McLaren CEO Zak Brown viewing the Aussie as a “future world champion”.

Piastri has certainly adjusted to life in F1 very quickly, despite having sat on the bench at Alpine last year.

What he’ll be able to achieve when McLaren’s car does improve remains to be seen; however, the likelihood is that Piastri will be challenging Norris throughout the campaign, perhaps putting the Briton under pressure.

“Oscar has been impressive since we’ve had him in the car. He’s very mature. He’s very focused and he’s very technical,” said Brown.

“So the combination of Lando and Oscar, I couldn’t think of a better combination of drivers.

How an AI-generated Michael Schumacher Interview Led to One of the F1 Controversies of the Year

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 22:54

Artificial Intelligence has been making its way into various industries and domains, including journalism, for some time. Supporters and critics have been arguing about the various pros and cons extensively, yet aside from that, it’s also started to emerge in some curious ways.

One example of this was seen in the Formula One world when an AI-generated interview with the legendary driver Michael Schumacher led to one of the biggest controversies of the year.

In the new era of AI-powered technology, it’s an issue that may start to become more common.

Here’s how the drama unfolded.

The positive side of AI

Some AI critics have warned that the technology is set to cost people jobs and bring down entire industries, but it’s not all bad news. In fact, we’re already starting to see the benefits of AI in many global sectors.

In healthcare, for example, AI can analyze vast amounts of data in a fraction of the time that it would take a human, leading to improved disease detection, diagnosis, and treatment. In patient-facing treatments, AI-powered chatbots can provide round-the-clock access to medical advice and support. These benefits, among others, make AI a valuable tool in the healthcare industry.

The entertainment sector is set to benefit from AI, too. In the world of gaming, AI has not only helped to optimize game designs, but it’s helping players find their ideal games instantly. A simple voice command into ChatGPT will draw up a list of games they will probably love to play on: it even takes on incomplete instructions, so a broken command like ‘Best slot sites in UK’, for example, will lead them to the list of specially curated options.

Journalists in Germany, however, have been using it for far more elaborate uses, as the recent Schumacher saga revealed. But just what happened exactly?

How AI generated the Schumacher interview

For all the perks of AI, the dangers of the technology are plentiful, and many are not that well-known. Deepfaking is one example, the practice of using artificial intelligence to digitally alter videos so convincingly that the viewer finds it very difficult to separate fiction from reality. The internet is full of hauntingly good examples of that.

AI-generated interviews follow a similar vein. Although not as impactful as videos, they still have the potential to cause significant harm. The Schumacher article came about as a practical joke but has generated considerable controversy.

Journalists at German magazine Die Aktuelle created it using old quotes from the driver, which were fed into an algorithm that generated new responses based on the patterns in Schumacher’s language. The resulting interview was then edited by the journalists, who provided context and additional questions.

The late April edition of Die Aktuelle ran a front cover with a picture of a smiling Schumacher and the headline promising “Michael Schumacher, the first interview”. The strapline added: “it sounded deceptively real”. Inside, it emerged the quotes had been produced by AI.

When the magazine published the interview, it initially claimed that it was based on a recent conversation with Schumacher and ran with the headline “Michael Schumacher, the first interview” along with a smiling image of the former F1 driver. They later retracted the claim and apologized.

The reaction was severe. The family of Schumacher, who hasn’t appeared in public since a French Alps skiing accident left him severely injured, immediately threatened legal action. Funke, the media group who owns Die Aktuelle, also said they would sue their own magazine calling it a “tasteless and misleading article that should never have appeared.”

This controversy surrounding the interview highlights the potential pitfalls of relying solely on AI-generated content in journalism in the future, with many possible consequences.

  The unfortunate consequences

As well as the distress caused to Schumacher’s family and the intended legal action from two parties, the episode also led directly to job losses. Editor-in-chief of the magazine Anne Hoffmann, who has been in the role since 2009, was told she would be “relieved of her duties immediately”.

F1 fans, too, suffered after being led to believe that their hero driver was on the road back to public appearances. While this is still possible in the future, the truth is that Schumacher is likely to need much more recovery time before such a scenario is possible.

This controversy surrounding the interview highlights the potential pitfalls of relying on AI-generated content in journalism in the future. Indeed, this unfortunate event may just be the tip of the iceberg with what such techniques could do in a dystopian-sounding future.

As AI technology continues to advance, it’s going to be crucial for authorities to compel people to use it ethically and with caution, ensuring that human oversight and accountability are always in place.

The future of accurate and truthful journalism may well depend on it.

Speeding into the Future: The Latest Developments and Innovations in Formula 1 Racing

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 22:48

Formula 1 racing has long captivated audiences worldwide with its high-speed action, cutting-edge technology, and fierce competition.

As one of the most popular and prestigious motorsports, Formula 1 is a sport that constantly pushes the boundaries of innovation and engineering.

This article will delve into the latest developments and innovations in Formula 1 racing, showcasing how the sport is speeding into the future.

Here are some of the latest developments.

Aerodynamics: Pushing the Limits of Design Understanding the Importance of Aerodynamics in F1

Aerodynamics plays a pivotal role in the performance of a Formula 1 car. The intricate design of the car’s body, wings, and other aerodynamic elements aims to maximize downforce while minimizing drag.

Generating high levels of downforce allows F1 cars to maintain better traction and higher cornering speeds, enabling them to negotiate challenging turns with precision and speed.

Innovations in Aerodynamic Design

F1 teams invest heavily in advanced wind tunnel testing and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations to gain a competitive edge.

These cutting-edge technologies allow engineers to refine the aerodynamic efficiency of the car’s design, reducing drag and improving overall performance.

By constantly fine-tuning aerodynamics, teams seek to strike the perfect balance between downforce and drag, enabling their cars to slice through the air with minimal resistance.

One such innovation born out of this pursuit is the Drag Reduction System (DRS). DRS, which the driver can manually activate, adjusts the rear wing’s angle to reduce drag and increase straight-line speed.

This technology has revolutionized overtaking in Formula 1, as drivers can temporarily reduce drag on designated track sections, making passing maneuvers more frequent and thrilling.

Power Units: The Hybrid Revolution Introduction to Hybrid Power Units

Formula 1 has embraced hybrid technology, transitioning from loud and powerful V8 engines to more environmentally friendly and efficient power units.

These cutting-edge hybrid power units consist of a turbocharged V6 internal combustion engine combined with energy recovery systems (ERS), resulting in increased power output and improved fuel efficiency.

Energy Recovery Systems (ERS)

The Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) is an integral part of the hybrid power units used in Formula 1.

KERS harnesses the kinetic energy generated during braking and stores it for later use. The stored energy is released when a driver accelerates, providing an extra power boost.

This system enhances overtaking opportunities and contributes to overall energy efficiency.

Furthermore, advancements in battery technology have allowed for more effective energy storage within the power units.

Regenerative braking, a feature of the ERS, enables kinetic energy recovery during deceleration, further optimizing energy usage and minimizing waste.

Data Analytics and Telemetry: The Science Behind Success Role of Data Analytics in F1

Data analytics has become a game-changer in Formula 1, revolutionizing race strategies and car development.

The wealth of real-time data collected during races, including tire performance, fuel consumption, and aerodynamic parameters, provides teams with invaluable insights that drive performance improvements.

Telemetry Systems

Formula 1 cars have advanced telemetry systems that monitor and transmit data in real-time. This data includes crucial information about engine performance, tire wear, and suspension settings.

Teams use this data to make informed decisions during races, adjusting car setups and strategizing pit stops accordingly.

Telemetry systems also enable engineers to remotely analyze and fine-tune the car’s performance during testing and practice sessions.

Integrating machine learning and artificial intelligence has further enhanced data analysis capabilities in Formula.

Machine learning algorithms are employed to process vast amounts of data in real-time, extracting patterns and insights that human analysts might miss.

Predictive analytics allows teams to simulate race scenarios and optimize strategies based on historical data and current race conditions.

This advanced data-driven approach has transformed how teams approach races, enabling them to make split-second decisions with a higher probability of success.

Safety Innovations: Protecting the Drivers Evolution of Safety Measures

Formula 1 has a history of implementing safety measures in response to tragic incidents. Over the years, significant advancements have been made to enhance driver safety.

Innovations such as improved track design, impact-absorbing barriers, and mandatory safety equipment like helmets and fire-resistant suits have reduced the risk of severe injuries.

Recent Safety Innovations

One of the most notable safety innovations in recent years is introduction of the Halo cockpit protection system.

The Halo is a reinforced structure mounted above the driver’s head, forming a protective barrier against flying debris and impacts from above.

Extensive research and testing have proven Halo’s effectiveness in safeguarding drivers, and it has become an integral part of Formula 1 car design.

In addition to cockpit protection, impact-resistant clothing, and gear advancements have played a crucial role in ensuring driver safety.

Driver suits are now made from highly durable and flame-resistant materials with improved impact-absorbing properties.

Helmets have also undergone significant developments, incorporating lightweight yet solid materials and enhanced impact-absorbing technologies to minimize the risk of head injuries.


Formula 1 racing continues to push the boundaries of innovation, technology, and performance. The sport is constantly evolving, from advancements in aerodynamics and hybrid power units to using data analytics and telemetry systems.

These innovations enhance the on-track excitement and competitiveness and contribute to sustainability efforts and driver safety.

Fans can anticipate even more groundbreaking developments as Formula 1 speeds into the future as a great badge creator.

The relentless pursuit of innovation and the drive to improve performance will undoubtedly lead to further advancements in aerodynamics, power units, data analytics, and safety measures.

With each new season, Formula 1 showcases the remarkable progress made in the world of motorsports, captivating audiences and solidifying its position as the pinnacle of racing technology.

Nurburgring 24 Hours: Huge crash occurs in closing stages

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 15:49

A terrifying crash in the closing hours of this year’s Nurburgring 24 Hours resulted in significant damage to a metal barrier, with an ambulance having rushed to the scene of the accident.

German driver Jurgen Vohringer crashed his Porsche Cayman at the Stefan Bellof-S, which is found towards the end of the 17-mile Nordschleife, with the car having ripped through a metal barrier.

Whilst no clips of the crash have surfaced, the recovery team were seen working around the destroyed Porsche.

Some photos of the car have shown significant damage to the roof and rear of the number 186 W&S Motorsport car, whilst multiple barriers also look destroyed.

Based on reports, it’s believed that the car hit the barrier on the right before bouncing across the circuit, where it made heavy contact with the barrier on the left-hand side of the track.

The car itself finally came to a halt 200 metres further down from where it struck the barrier, away from the racing line thankfully.

Photos also showed a tyre carcass on the right-hand side of the famous circuit, which saw a Code 60 introduced.

With the legendary and formidable circuit being so big, a red flag wasn’t required.

Instead, the organisers introduced a Code 60, which forces the drivers to slow down when going past the scene of the accident, whilst they can race at full speed everywhere else.

Vohringer is an experienced driver at the German venue having competed in the Nurburgring endurance series, as has team-mate Sebastien Carcone.

Vohringer and Carcone were sharing the Porsche with Axel Duffner and Max Lamesch for the race, which team boss Daniel Shellhaas labelled ahead of the event as the “toughest endurance race in the world”.

Ferrari boss is an ‘ally’ of Lewis Hamilton amid rumoured move

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 15:35

Rumours are swirling that Lewis Hamilton and Ferrari have begun talks over a possible switch that would see the seven-time world champion join the iconic Italian team.

With Hamilton already believed to have a close ally at Ferrari, Mercedes could be in a tricky situation, as the Brit looks for the best option to help him achieve a record-breaking eighth world title.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff has confidently claimed that Hamilton will sign an extension to his current deal in the next few weeks but there is still no sign of an agreement being reached.

The Daily Mail has reported that Ferrari are preparing to offer Hamilton a way out, as the Brit hopes to secure his first victory since the 2021 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

Elkann is thought to be an “ally” of Hamilton, so the relationship could help to seal the deal, with the Ferrari official choosing the driver line-up for next season.

Both Leclerc and Sainz have previously committed to a future with Ferrari, so it’s not clear which driver would step aside for Hamilton.

However, Leclerc has been linked to a move to Mercedes if Hamilton vacates his seat, with the Monegasque frustrated by his inability to secure a world title with Ferrari.

Stefano Domenicali agrees with Toto Wolff about George Russell

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 15:24

Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali believes that Mercedes driver George Russell has the capability to one day lift the Drivers’ title, having shown his skill behind the wheel.

The Brit secured his first podium in the 2021 season for Williams, taking advantage of the tricky conditions to secure a strong qualifying spot, and his first victory last year at the Brazilian Grand Prix, dominating the Sprint and feature race.

Despite the challenging performance of the Mercedes car in the new era of regulations, Russell has shown his consistency, picking up the pieces when rivals fall down and using qualifying to secure the best start in the race.

Russell even managed to outscore seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton last year, showing his ability to challenge a legend of the sport when given equal machinery.

With the strong showing from Russell over the past few years, it’s not surprising that Formula 1 officials have noticed his talent, with Domenicali citing the Brit as a future star of the sport.

“There’s a great future for Formula One,” Domenicali told the Daily Mail, recognising the likes of George Russell, Lando Norris and Charles Leclerc.

“I think they know who must take the decisions.”

The comments come after Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff backed his driver to thrive when he gets a car that can compete against the best.

“George is a champion in the making and he was a champion in all the junior categories, in F3, F2, as a rookie,” Wolff said. 

“We would have never put him in a Mercedes if we didn’t believe he can be a future world champion.”

Russell is currently sat in sixth place in the Drivers’ Standings, with 40 points, 79 behind title leader Max Verstappen and 16 points behind his teammate Lewis Hamilton.

Red Bull blocked embarrassing footage from Drive to Survive

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 15:11

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner stepped in to block awkward content from airing on the Netflix show ‘Drive to Survive,’ using their veto to prevent any public embarrassment.

As part of their agreement that allows Netflix the inside track, Red Bull has a ‘get out of jail’ card to prevent any secrets or potentially damaging remarks making it onto the show.

Over the last five season, while fans have been given a glimpse behind the curtain, Red Bull has intervened on a number of occasions to keep the focus on the sport and away from the drama.

“My wife has always said to me a pat on the back is only six inches from a kick up the arse,” Horner said earlier this year.

“This is like the Kardashians on wheels,” he added, discussing the series.

 Horner felt that, while the show does open the sport up to a wider audience, some of the content gathered during the past season would have been commercially damaging to the team if it had aired.

“What you’ve got to remember is that it’s a television show,” Horner told the Financial Times newspaper.

“They capture hours and hours of content.

“The problem is they put a microphone on you at the beginning of the day and you forget that they’re there.

“Then you get to the end of the season and they tend to send you the clips of just you and your team.

“You think ‘Did I really say that? Did I really call someone a See You Next Tuesday’?

“At that point we say, ‘You can’t put that in there, there’s a part of the car you can’t show’,” he admitted. “That’s the only get out of jail card we have.”

Red Bull has had a contentious relationship with the Netflix show in the past, with Max Verstappen having withdrawn his participation over concerns producers were creating fake storylines for the drama.

The Dutchman returned to the series this year, as the two-time reigning champion, for an interview presenting his side of events in the show.

F1 23 reveals Pastor Maldonado’s and Kamui Kobayashi’s driver rating

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 15:01

Ahead of next month’s launch of the latest Formula 1 video game – F1 23 – ex-F1 drivers Pastor Maldonado and Kamui Kobayashi have had their ratings revealed, with both set to feature in this year’s game.

F1 23 is set to launch on June 16, with the two ex-F1 drivers making a return as part of the MyTeam mode.

Both Maldonado and Kobayashi can be signed by players in the mode, where you build your own team from scratch in attempt to claim the Constructors’ Championship.

EA Sports unveiled the duos ratings during a new video where more insight was given into this season’s game, with the official launch being just over three weeks away.

Maldonado, who is best known for winning the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix whilst driving for Williams, has been awarded a driver rating of 82, lower than Kobayashi’s.

The former Sauber and Caterham driver has been awarded an impressive driver rating of 85, whilst some of his stats are also very solid.

Kobayashi was awarded a race craft rating of 94, compared to Maldonado’s 83.

The Japanese driver was also given a higher awareness rating than the Venezuelan, who did have a tendency to cause a collision.

Kobayashi boasts an awareness rating of 83, with Maldonado having been given an awareness rating of just 65.

The former Williams driver was given a higher experience and pace rating that Kobayashi, though, with EA Sports having awarded the 38-year-old a respectable 65 for experience and 85 for pace.

Kobayashi has been awarded just 60 for experience but 83 for pace.

Fans were quick to joke about Maldonado’s pace rating, given how he was at times either one of the fastest on the grid, or one of the slowest.

“Maldonado should have fluctuating pace stat. On a good day he was faster than Hamilton. Also not sure if that awareness is low enough considering he retired in third of all races he did lol,” wrote Bluwafflz on Reddit.

Also set to feature in the game as a MyTeam icon this year is reigning W Series Champion and current Indy NXT driver Jamie Chadwick; however, her rating is yet to be announced.

Toto Wolff teases fans ahead of Monaco Grand Prix

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:53

Mercedes might be six points behind Aston Martin and 128 points adrift of Red Bull but the Silver Arrows haven’t given up hope this season, as they prepare to mount a comeback in the title race.

Ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, Mercedes are rolling out a major upgrade package designed to address all of their performance failings.

The new parts had been set to debut at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix prior to its cancellation after deadly floods made it unsafe to proceed with the weekend.

With Monaco being a unique track, with narrow twists and turns, Mercedes aren’t sure whether it will be clear that the upgrades have achieved the desired effect.

“Monaco has nothing to do with a conventional racetrack,” Wolff said to oe24.

“Therefore, we won’t find out next weekend if the changes we made to the car will really make a difference.

“It remains exciting.”

Monaco is a famous feature on the calendar, a favourite with fans and drivers alike, as it requires intricate skill to reach peak performance.

Mercedes will be hoping that Lewis Hamilton’s skill around the racetrack will allow him to get ahead of others on the grid, using his experience to his advantage.

The Brit has secured three victories and four podiums in Formula 1 around the circuit, putting him on par with sporting legends Stirling Moss and Jackie Stewart.

It won’t be easy for Mercedes though, as Red Bull will be hoping to continue their string of dominant performances that have delivered a 100% season win record so far.

While Max Verstappen is thriving behind the wheel of the RB19, it will be Sergio Perez who hopes to take the crown in Monaco for the second consecutive year, becoming the first back-to-back winner since Nico Rosberg.

Protestors blast Formula 1 for cancelling Imola Grand Prix 

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:40

The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix was called off amid heavy rainfall and deadly flooding in the Italian region, which left 14 people dead and more than 13,000 displaced.

Emergency services have been working hard this past week, airlifting individuals to safety and seeking to ensure that residents are able to return to their homes.

“It is not possible to safely hold the event for our fans, the teams and our personnel, and it is the right thing to do given the situation faced by the towns and cities in the region,” Formula 1 officials said earlier this year.

The Formula 1 community welcomed the cancellation as the right thing to do given the circumstances, believing it would be wrong to divert emergency services away from the flooding to host the race.

However, protest group Extinction Rebellion has blasted the media coverage of the situation, claiming it has focused too much on the cancellation, ignoring the real issues.

“While many are heartbroken about the high carbon, high profit, @‌F1 race cancellation,” the group said on social media. 

“Shouldn’t big media care more about on the deaths of at least 9 people, and thousands homeless or evacuated across multiple countries?”

Formula 1 is now set to return next weekend at the Monaco Grand Prix, with drivers taking to the iconic street circuit, known for its tight twists and turns.

Mercedes planning ‘Silicon-Valley-style’ campus

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:27

Mercedes have unveiled plans for a huge £70 million development project, as the team looks to develop a “Silicon valley-style” base through substantial investment in staff and infrastructure.

The proposal, which is set to be completed by 2025, will create an impressive base in Brackley for the eight-time Constructors’ champions.

“We want it to become its own little village, with all the amenities and benefits that you would expect from a Silicon Valley-style environment,” Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said.

“The Brackley campus was built to accommodate 350 people, and today we are at 1250.

“The development of the campus over the last five years was done at an astonishing pace and this now looks like an F1 team with modern state-of-the-art facilities.”

Mercedes are in the middle of a plan to revamp their operations to ensure long-term success in the sport, as they chart a comeback under the new era of regulations.

At the Monaco Grand Prix, the efforts of the team are set to be on show, as Mercedes rolls out much needed upgrades to their underperforming W14.

The focus will be on the changes Mercedes bring to their sidepod design, which, so far, has seen them lagging behind their rivals.

It’s not yet known whether the team will push ahead with their ‘zero sidepod’ concept, alter it or completely scrap it in favour of an approach similar to the other Constructors on the grid.

The team will be hoping that, with the new parts and Lewis Hamilton’s experience around Monaco, having secured three victories and four podiums, Mercedes could enjoy a good weekend in the principality.

In the 2023 Constructors’ Standings, Mercedes currently finds itself in P3, with 96 points, 128 points behind title leaders Red Bull and hot on the tails of Aston Martin in P2.

Carlos Sainz irritated by ‘stupid talk’ over his future

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:16

Carlos Sainz has, once again, rejected rumours that he is planning to abandon Ferrari for a move to the incoming Audi team, which will join the grid in 2026.

The Spaniard called talk about his future “stupid,” refusing to dignify the speculation with a response, adding that he is committed to winning a title with the Italian team.

Sainz joined Ferrari in 2021, winning his first Grand Prix with the team at the 2022 British Grand Prix, successfully converting his first-ever pole position.

While sometimes seen as Ferrari’s number 2 driver, Sainz has repeatedly sought to put an end to those claims, outscoring Charles Leclerc in their first season as teammates and fighting the Monegasque for position on track.

This season, while Leclerc secured P2 in the sprint in Baku and P3 in that weekend’s Grand Prix, Ferrari has failed to get on terms with Red Bull, who have scooped every race victory of the season.

As the Scuderia SF-23 is performing woefully this season compared to Red Bull’s RB19, reports have been rife that Sainz and Leclerc could be looking for a way out of the team.

Leclerc has been linked to a move to Mercedes should Lewis Hamilton vacate his seat, while Sainz has been named as a top target for Audi when the German manufacturer lines up in a few years.

“I know there’s still two very important years ahead of us,” Sainz told The Race, “and I think further up than that would be stupid to talk about.

“But I feel I still have yet to achieve my full potential as a driver. And I feel like at least here I’ve already done another good step in the right direction.

Former F1 driver claims Fernando Alonso is a better driver than Michael Schumacher

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 14:01

Having scored four podiums in five races, Fernando Alonso is in the midst of an impressive rival, powering Aston Martin into P2 in the Constructor’s Standings.

Alonso is standing in third place in the Drivers’ race, just 44 points behind title-leader Max Verstappen, impressive given the Dutchman hasn’t finished outside the top two this season.

At 41, Alonso is the oldest driver on the grid but, despite his age, he hasn’t lost his edge, remaining as strong and fearsome as ever.

The strong showing from Alonso comes despite the Spaniard having taken two years out of the sport only a few seasons ago.

Want to work in Formula 1? Browse the latest F1 job vacancies

Alonso had walked away from Formula 1 at the end of 2018, frustrated with the underperforming McLaren-Honda partnership he was tied into.

He returned two years later at Alpine, partnering Esteban Ocon, before leaving for Aston Martin at the start of this season.

Speaking on the Formula For Success podcast, former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard discussed how Alonso shapes up to sporting icon Michael Schumacher.

Schumacher retired from Ferrari in 2006 but came back to the sport in 2010, joining Mercedes for three seasons.

While Schumacher showed his skill at time during his stint with Mercedes, the German failed to rise to his old status with seasons filled with mistakes and disappointing performance.

Comparing their comebacks, Coulthard argued that Alonso has shown a more impressive run of form than Schumacher managed.

“When Alonso stepped away from Formula 1 the first time, he went straight into sports cars, IndyCar, he did the Dakar, he’s got a kart track and you see him out testing his karts at his facility in Spain,” Coulthard said.

“So the uninterrupted being in the mode of being a racing driver, and all of the things that that keeps sharp in your mind. There’s the expression, ‘Don’t let the old man in’.

“If you let the old man or the old woman in that, ultimately, is what you end up becoming. But, if you fight against that and you keep a young spirit for as long as nature will allow…

“I think, in comparison to Michael, who stopped and no longer was racing, then went and played in motorbikes and then had a crash and broke a vertebra, and then came back to Formula 1 three years after he’d originally stopped – he could still do go through the motions. He was still an incredible individual, but he just wasn’t as good as he had been before he was in his 40s and the clock had moved.

“So I think it was that uninterrupted nature of Fernando’s time away from F1, as we saw with Kimi Raikkonen [who sat out 2010 and ’11] as well – he went away rallying.”

Zak Brown addresses Haas as he says he doesn’t want ‘dreamers’ in Formula 1

Tue, 05/23/2023 - 05:28

McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown has called for only “credible” Formula 1 entries to be allowed to join the sport from 2025, with the American not wanting to see “dreamers” given a spot on the grid.

F1 hasn’t seen a new team join the paddock since Haas were introduced in 2016, with the American outfit having since asserted themselves as a respectable midfield team.

Possibly two new entries are set to join the F1 family, though, with the FIA having launched an ‘expression of interest’ process back in February, where prospective F1 teams can file their intent on joining the pinnacle of motorsport.

A decision by the FIA is expected to be made by June 30 this year, after the teams had until April 30 to submit all the required documents.

Andretti-Cadillac are arguably the most likely entry to be accepted by the FIA, with the all-American entry having been working tirelessly behind-the-scenes to ensure that they are ready to join the championship in 2025.

The side have even received public support from FIA president Mohammed Ben Sulayem, who took to social media recently to praise the entry.

Unlike the majority of the paddock and seemingly the sport itself, Brown is in favour of new teams joining the championship, with the McLaren CEO believing that it’d “grow the sport”.

“I’d love to see more cars on the grid, as long as they are additive to our sport,” said Brown, as reported by

“I think it’s exciting. I remember when I started following Formula 1, you had pre-qualifying, I think there were 30-31 cars trying to show up to make the show.

“So I think an increase in the grid of the right teams that bring the right resources and are additive to what we’re all trying to do and help grow the sport then I’m all for it.”

Other than Andretti, little has been said about the other proposed entries, with Brown therefore being wary that only “credible” entries should be considered, with “dreamers” not being what the sport needs.

“What we can’t have is… Really the only credible, sustainable team that I’ve seen in the last decade is Haas,” continued Brown.

“So what we do need to make sure is if someone enters that they really have the commitment and can do what it takes.

“Because in my experience, I think in a variety of motorsports, you do see a lot of dreamers and what we don’t need with the health of the sport is a team coming in underestimating what it’s going to take and two years later, they’re gone.

“Hats off to Haas for the commitment they’ve made and continue to make to the sport, so we need more teams like that.”
