After almost 4 years the wolf is tired and needs a break. The motivation is no longer there. With that also is gone the willingness to voluntarily sacrifice all the time needed to keep the site going. Even that bare minimum of time the wolf devoted to the site in 2010 … So, after a […]

What is the third car idea all about ?

Luca de Montezemolo would like to see 3 Ferraris on the grid

Luca de Montezemolo would like to see 3 Ferraris on the grid

These words from Luca de Montezemolo earlier this week stirred up quite some debate:

“We’re continuing to fight until every team has the right to start with three cars in the next season (and one I’d have handed over to Michael with pleasure). I prefer three McLaren and three Renault to three “whatevers”. With BMW gone, there’s not much to say but lots to do.”

What has been overlooked is the fact that this is not something that Ferrari came up with after Schumacher called off his planned comeback. This is an idea that FOTA has been floating for quite a while. The last occassion was when FOTA reacted to BMW’s withdrawal from the sport (July 29):

2010 Formula 1 drivers – The first look

2010 F1 Drivers

Unlike last season this year we have already had some mid-season drivers changes. Jaime Alguersuari has replaced Sebastien Bourdais in Toro Rosso, Nelson Piquet was dropped by Renault and Luca Badoer is about to step in to Ferrari F60 for injured Felipe Massa. Unlike last year we can also expect some serious shuffle to come before the 2010 season begins. BMW is on their way out, 3 (or 4) new teams are on the way in, several contracts are up for renewal (or else). Let’s have a first look how the things are (or may be) shaping up:

Michael Schumacher calls off the F1 come back

Michael Schumacher will not race in Valencia

Michael Schumacher will not race in Valencia

Michael Schumacher has decided to call off his Formula One comeback. Luca Badoer will replace Felipe Massa for the European GP in Valencia. In the statement published on his website Schumacher explained that the persisting neck problems are the reason behind the cancellation of his F1 come back:

“Yesterday evening, I had to inform Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo and team principal Stefano Domenicali that unfortunately I’m not able to step in for Felipe.

I really tried everything to make that temporary comeback possible, however, much to my regret it didn’t work out. Unfortunately we did not manage to get a grip on the pain in the neck which occurred after the private F1-day in Mugello, even if medically or therapeutically we tried everything possible.

FIA re-opened team selection process

Will Peter Sauber keep his former team in F1 ?

Will Peter Sauber keep his former team in F1 ?

Following the failure of BMW and Peter Sauber to reach a takeover deal on time to sign the new Concorde Agreement a vacancy on the 2010 has been created. Max Mosley wasted no time and wrote to the teams on his reserve list (unsuccessful candidates for 2010 F1 entry as well as BMW Sauber) informing them that about the newly available place on the F1 grid.

This may look harsh on Peter Sauber who still continues to look for a way to save the team he created in the early 90s. On the other hand the it is hard to blame FIA for this action. If anyone is to jump in and fill the empty space left behind by BMW they need to know sooner rather than later.
