Haas says it has found the cause of Romain Grosjean's braking woes at Singapore. A plug in the brake-by-wire system came unplugged.

"It was a connector that fell off," said team principal Gunther Steiner. "To get to the connector you have to take the gearbox off and, obviously, there was no time to do that. Sunday night after the race in Singapore, we took the gearbox off and it was as simple as reconnecting it.

"We'll manufacture a device in Europe to be sent via air freight to Malaysia to ensure the connector doesn't fall off again. It will be fitted on the car before we get on track in Malaysia."

It must have been one of those Lucas connectors.

Lance Stroll has signed contract for F1 debut at Williams in 2017.

That's the claim of Finnish newspaper Turun Sanomat, adding that the probability that the teenage Canadian's teammate will be Valtteri Bottas is "high".

The report adds - Stroll, the European F3 leader whose father is the fashion mogul Lawrence Stroll, is bringing no less than $35 million a year to the Grove team.

Seems there are talented drivers with financial muscle out there. No doubt if it all goes tits up on the F1 grid for Lance he'll be referred to as a just another pay driver. ;)

This video gives us a look behind the scenes of what it takes to build and maintain a Formula One car. This video by Red Bull Racing shows the life of a front suspension bolt. On of over 1 million parts that get made and checked every F1 season by the team.

https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/apple-reportedly-in-talks-to-buy-mclaren/

Apparently Apple has been in talks with McLaren for months, either to buy the team or to at least invest in it (presumably like Mercedes in the past).

The article I read is a technology site, so they're wondering if Apple wants McLaren technology to help their aspirations for self driving cars.

I'd like to see Apple involved in F1, if for no other reason they've got so much cash that Bernie's bank accounts look like pocket change.  Without debating the merits of Apple as a company, they have a lot of cachet and can bring new audiences to F1.  I'd like to see an Apple team take on a Google team.

A friend sent me this article.

http://autoweek.com/article/formula-one/haas-f1-team-taking-financial-hit-forming-team-ground?utm_source=RacingDaily20160919&utm_medium=enewsletter&utm_term=headline-center&utm_content=body&utm_campaign=awracingdaily

I kinda-sorta knew how it worked, speaking of how the money gets divvied up among the teams.  There are some details contained in the article that I did not realize.

For instance, and I think this is just plain WRONG, the part about a new team not getting the big pot money for finishing in the top ten until they have performed at that level for 2 of 3 seasons.  That tells me that the big, established teams, are afraid of the new kid on the block jumping right into the mix of the previously successful.

     This guy wakes up one morning to find a gorilla in his tree. He looks in the phone book for a gorilla removal service until he finds one.

     "Is it a boy or girl Gorilla?" the service guy asks.

     "Boy," is the man's response.

     "Oh yeah, I can do it. I'll be right there", says the service guy. An hour later the service guy shows up with a stick, a Chihuahua, a shotgun, and a pair of handcuffs. He then gives the man some instructions: "Now, I'm going to climb this tree and poke the gorilla with the stick until he falls. When he does, the trained Chihuahua will bite the gorilla's testicles off. The gorilla will then cross his hands to protect himself and allow you to put the handcuffs on him."

     The man asks, "What do I do with the shotgun?"

     The service guy replies, "If I fall out of the tree before the gorilla, shoot the Chihuahua."

Not being a fan of blue flags to begin with, I would prefer to see them either abolish them and let the drivers get past back markers off the racing line, or just for spice, put the blue flags away during the last 10 laps of every race.  :crazy: :crazy:

Hey Toto, everyone's in the race.
