Heidfeld and Klien return to F1 racing this weekend

Nick Heidfeld

Nick Heidfeld will race for his old team for the rest of the season

There will be two “new” faces on the grid this weekend in Singapore. Sauber announced after Italian GP that Nick Heidfeld will replace Pedro de la Rosa for the rest of the season. (Pedro de la Rosa will take on the Pirelli testing job previously held by Heidfeld and Grosjean).

Short while ago the HRT team announced that Christian Klien will replace Sakon Yamamoto for the Singapore GP. The official reason is food poisoning. The team hopes that Yamamoto will be OK to race in Japan. Here is the press release from HRT:

Ferrari found guilty

Massa Alonso Germany 2010

It was not to be for Felipe Massa

The Hockenheim race stewards clearly did not like what happened on lap 49 of 2010 German GP … Ferrari were found guilty of breaching Article 39.1 of the Sporting Regulation which bans the team orders in Formula One. They were also found guilty of bringing the sport into disrepute. The result of the race stays at the moment but Ferrari were fined $100,000. The case was also referred to the World Motor Sport Council for further consideration.

So, it looks like Ferrari blokes are the only ones convinced by the Ferrari story …

Yamamoto replaces Senna for 2010 British GP – Updated

Sakon Yamamoto HRT

Sakon Yamamoto - The HRT race driver for 2010 British GP

In a move that surprised many HRT decided to replace Bruno Senna with Sakon Yamamoto for 2010 British GP. Well, July is the month when F1 drivers often get fired. But to do this on the eve of Grand Prix weekend is rather unusual.

Yamamoto’s deal is at the moment for one race only. The decision on who will drive for the team for the rest of the season is to be made sometime this weekend. That sounds like bad news for Bruno Senna as while the announcement suggests that Yamamoto only has a one race deal it does not indicate that Senna was dropped for this one race only …

2010 European GP – Race Result – Vettel wins

Sebastian Vettel - 2010 European GP winner

Sebastian Vettel - 2010 European GP winner

Sebastian Vettel won the 2010 European GP ahead of McLaren duo Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button. This Valencia race was more exciting the previous two. However the incompetence of the race stewards and race control following the safety car deployment (after the spectacular and scary Mark Webber crash) did leave a blemish on the race result. How can a driver who overtakes a safety car end up actually benefiting from breaching the rules ? Why all the drivers investigated for their behavior behind the safety car could not be penalized during the race ? (And by the way, where did the five seconds penalty come from ?)

2010 European GP Result:

1. Vettel – Red Bull
2. Hamilton – McLaren
3. Button – McLaren
4. Barrichello – Williams
5. Kubica – Renault
6. Sutil – Force India
7. Kobayashi – Sauber
8. Alonso – Ferrari
9. Buemi – Toro Rosso
10. Rosberg – Mercedes
