Wolf is taking a break

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 […]

Macau GP Formula 3 Race

Macau GP Formula 3 Race

The 55th Macau Grand Prix will be held between November 13 – 16, 2008 on the Guia Circuit in Macau. The provisional entry for its star event – the Formula 3 race – has already been released. The Macau GP Formula 3 race traditionally features the best of the best from different Formula 3 series around the world. There may not be any big big names on this list, but how big names were Robert Kubica or Sebastian Vettel back in 2005

Here is the updated Entry List for the Windsor Arch Formula 3 Macau Grand Prix:

The “what ifs” or “How on Earth did Timo Glock get drawn into the 2008 title fight ?”

Timo Glock, the title decider ?

Timo Glock, the title decider ?

It is funny how the actions of the almost rookie driver became the topic of heated debates following the final race of 2008 season. But how did Glock actually end up in that position ?

Well on the Brazilian GP race day it was combination of his tactics and the weather. He was well behind Hamilton before the rain, and without the rain he would not even be ahead of Hamilton in those final stages. There would be no drama and no premature celebrations in Ferrari garage. Unless of course all the cars ahead of him planned one more splash and dash stop even without rain.

That was the race day. But how come neither Massa nor Hamilton were able to lock title earlier ? How come we even had to talk about Timo Glock ? They both had their opportunities… (read on)

Where the support and jokes end and abuse and racism begin ?

The racism and improper behaviour of fans in Formula 1 is back in the news. Bernie Ecclestone believes that the events earlier this year during Barcelona test were more joke than racist abuse. Jaime Martin, F1 editor of Spanish newspaper Marca accepts they may have been racist “but if Lewis was bald, the insults would have related to his baldness.” Ecclestone also considers the booing aimed at Hamilton in Brazil last weekend or back in Valencia during European GP as normal expressions of allegiance by home fans:

“In Spain people supported Fernando Alonso and in Brazil they supported Felipe Massa. People are entitled to support who they want to support. When was (Hamilton) insulted? Do you remember the Ferrari guys that wore the red wigs? People are expressing themselves.”

Some thoughts on latest FIA decisions – Calendar, engines, stewards

The World Motor Sport Council met in Paris yesterday and came up with three significant decisions.

1) The 2009 Calendar

I made a post on the latest version of the calendar yesterday (click here). FIA hasn’t commented much on the new calendar. They simply took advantage of the French GP dropping out, moved China to April, kept the summer break and shortened the season by 2 weeks. No mention at all about the Canadian GP. Now I am not sure if this is a good sign or not. The talks between Montreal officials and Bernie Ecclestone took place about 2 weeks ago, there was some sort deadline for some decisions to be made set for the Friday before Brazilian GP. We haven’t heard anything from Canada neither we had from Bernie. All we get is the 3rd version of 2009 calendar. So does it mean this version is finally the final one and we can forget about any North American Formula One race next year or are the talks still going on behind the scenes making further changes to calendar possible ? I would like to start making some plans for Formula 1 travels for next year and knowing which final calendar is really final would be very helpful …

2) Three race engines

2008 Formula 1 Season – Road to Championship Title

2008 Brazilian F1 GP – Wolf’s Race Review – This was the grand finale !

I though that we we had in Brazil in 2007 was as good as it gets when it comes to title deciding season ending Formula 1 races. I was wrong . Both Hamilton and Massa could have had wrapped the title before the Brazilian Grand Prix. But the reliability problems, driver mistakes, safety cars, rain […]
