Formula 1 – Driver Rumours 2008 – Part 3

Even we have no races until August 26, things are happening and driver rumours do not seem to stop. There is still the Alonso vs Hamilton vs McLaren situation. The 2008 grid very much depends on how McLaren will settle their internal unrest. It looked like the things might be calming down, based on Hamilton’s statements that Alonso is talking to him again. However the reports that Alonso declined offer by Ron Dennis to join him on board Mansour Ojjeh’s 72-metre super-yacht indicates otherwise. Dennis reportedly invited Alonso to smoothen the tension. Alonso though prefers to stick to his original plans. There go the peace talks…

Formula 1 – New Guy On The Grid – Sebastien Bourdais

Only a week ago Toro Rosso confirmed Sebastien Bourdais as their driver for 2008 season. He will be new to F1, but definitely not a racing rookie. His 3 Champ Cars titles (and 4th still possible this year) are impressive.


Let’s see how will his career in F1 turn out. Several winners of CART Championship (Champ Cars’ predecessor) moved to F1 in recent years.

Formula 1 – Provisional 2008 Calendar

The FIA published the provisional race calendar for 2008. It looks like business as usual at the beginning of the season. Opening race in Australia followed by Malaysia, Bahrain and Spain. Then there is new slot for Turkey in May, instead of their usual August date. France still remains on the calendar with Magny Cours set to feature again. The late August date vacated by Turkey went to Valencia for the European GP. US GP is missing. The final fly away part of the season will kick off in Singapore. Last race of 2008 season is planned for November 02 in Brazil.

Updated on September 18, 2008 (Belgian GP switched the date with Italy, and Japanese GP switched the date with China.

Formula 1 – Street Race in Valencia Confirmed For 2008

The very fresh rumours about street race in Valencia proved to be well founded. Today at the press conference attended also by Bernie Ecclestone it was confirmed that the race will take place in 2008 on a street circuit at the renovated port area. The deal is for 7 years and it will feature as an European GP. So after eliminating the second races in Germany and in Italy (at least for a year) we will now have 2 races in Spain. This deal goes a bit against the recent trend of moving the races away from Europe and we all probably have Fernando Alonso and his popularity in Spain to thank for. There goes the 1 country 1 race idea … But as for another street track I give Bernie thumbs up. But please – design the track that will guarantee some racing, not a procession decided on Saturday …
