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 […]
The Barcelona test continued with day 2. The fastest driver of the day was Kimi Raikkonen putting Ferrari at the top of the time sheets for a change. Kazuki Nakajima managed a quick lap placing Williams 2nd for the day. Brawn GP continues to impress with their pace – 3rd fastest time for Rubens Barrichello on his first outing in the new Brawn GP car. What is it with McLaren though – problems or not showing the others what they have up their sleevs ?
There have been many rumours and speculations about Honda F1 future flying around since the car company announced the withdrawal from F1 back in December. Today Ross Brawn revealed a bit more on his new Brawn GP team. At least some of the speculations can now be set to rest.
Bourdais took STR4 to the track for the first time
Interesting day in Barcelona yesterday. Toro Rosso introduced their new car, STR4, a car made in Faenza that “is not a rebadged RB5″. Jenson Button and Brawn GP raised some eyebrows by spending most of the day at the top of the time sheets. At the end the honour of being the fastest driver of the day went to Nick Heidfeld for his 1:20.338 lap. Raikkonen’s Ferrarri and Trulli’s Toyota were about 6 tenths behind. This may suggest that Heidfeld (same as Vettel last week in Jerez) did a low fuel qualifying run. Only 2 tenths further back was Jenson Button.
Scuderia Toro Rosso revealed today their 2009 challeneger – STR4. The car was built (same as Red Bull’s RB5) by Red Bull Technology. And while Toro Rosso’s technical director Giorgio Ascanelli insists the new STR4 is not a rebadged Red Bull Racing RB5 it would be quite difficult to spot too many differences other than those directly related to different engine and then of course the livery. If you spot any, please list them out in the comments ! The STR4 should be the last Toro Rosso car built by Red Bull. From 2010 Toro Rosso should built their own car to comply with the regulations that do not allow teams running customer cars.
It’s time for a little Monday F1 quiz again. This week half of the questions have something to do with F1 teams owned by former Formula 1 drivers, the other half is about the teams or names of the teams that recently appeared in F1.

You will find all the answers after you complete all 10 questions. As usual please no googling for answers . And do not forget to share your result in comments !

The gap between now and Australian GP is smaller than the gap between Hungarian and European GPs this summer. We have only 20 days to go. The last 10 days were rather eventful, the most important is that we finally know that there will be 20 cars lining up on the grid in Melbourne and […]
Together with the roadmap for Formula 1 FOTA last week revealed also the findings of their global audience survey. Seventeen countries were surveyed, F1 devotees as well as marginal and/or low interest fans were polled. Here are the findings:
The 2009 F1 grid has been finalized and here are the logos of all 10 teams that will participate in 2009 Formula One Championship. Compared to 2008 F1 team logos there are of course missing those of Super Aguri and Honda Racing while Brawn GP is the new addition. There is also change in Force […]
The same day the takeover of Honda F1 by Ross Brawn has been announced Jenson Button took the new Mercedes powered BGP001 to the Silverstone track for shakedown. The team has released some photos – click here to view. The car is rather disappoitingly all white with some touches of black and flourescent yellow. There […]
The announcement this morning (or last night, depending where you live) of Honda F1 takeover by Ross Brawn’s Brawn GP and confirmation of Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button that came with it filled the final blank fields in the 2009 Formula 1 driver line up. Here it is:
Three months after Honda announced their withdrawal from Formula One both Honda and Ross Brawn confirmed the takeover of the team by Ross Brawn and renaming the team to Brawn GP. The team colours appear to be black and yellow (and perhaps white), the logo is quite ugly and their webiste brawngp.com is already up […]
Nick Fry resurfaced today in Geneva at the FOTA press conference.
