Not just the 4 we know but Bianchi and Gutierrez too.  :o       

Colin Kolles says Jules Bianchi signed for Sauber just hours before his Suzuka crash.  :swoon:       

Now call me old fashioned but how the hell did Monisha expect this crazy multi driver setup to work out without a court or other authorities being involved ???  :DntKnw:

Should think Sauber can now make serious money from seminars advising timeshare bandits and other charlatans.   ::)

Here we go - seems like only last week we were racing in China.   :DD
Oh, right, so we were.

Bahrain International Circuit - one of several (now on the calendar) of Herman Tilke's purpose-designed tracks, many of which causes me to wonder, just what is the purpose (?).  Not the worst by any means and it has produced some pretty good racing over the years, unlike a few that never (almost) have an exciting race.  Wind and sand are problems here.

It is a 15 turn, 5.4 km (3.4 miles) circuit with four straights and DRS zones on two of them.  Construction was begun in 2002 and the first race was in 2004.  It cost £94M!  Grands Prix have raced in each year except for 2011 so having missed the one year, this will be the 11th.  It became a night race in 2014.

The lap record of 1:30.252 was set by Schumacher in 2004 in that awesome, bullet proof, Prancing Horse.
Previous race winners on the 2015 grid:
Alonso (3x) - this is not likely to produce a fourth for him
Massa (2x) - not a probable winner
Vettel (2x) - has a definite chance to make this number three
Hamilton  - has the best chance to add a win to his total
Interestingly enough to mention is the fact that this race is won by the pole sitter less than half of the time.

There was good intra-team racing in 2014:
Rosberg started on pole and Hamilton won it, but the duel was certainly a fantastic show to watch.
Vettel qualified ahead of Ricciardo and lost out to his teammate.
Bottas started ahead of Massa and lost out to him in the end.
Kimi had a better starting position than Fred, but like the others, lost out.
There were six retirements, including both McLarens, a team I am sure hopes to turn that around this weekend.



I have a few images I think worthy - not sure how big they will be once posted, but . . .
One in particular I thought interesting as it shows speeds, G-forces and etc.

Lewis Hamilton says that if teammate Nico Rosberg want to wants to race race him, he should bring it on.

"I grew up watching the sport. You want to see overtaking, you want to see a battle.
 
"I want the guy to be up my ass if he's got the pace to be up my ass, and if you can't defend it, you lose it.
 
"I want to race, man. This is motor racing. Racing," he emphasized.
 
"Nico didn't try (to overtake)," Hamilton continued. "They (Mercedes) said maybe he was just comfortable second and I said, 'Well, that's the difference between us.'"

Snap!

Things should be interesting this week-end.

No solution in sight for 6 weeks. - Crikey! :swoon:                                 

A fault with the piston design of Renault’s 2015 power unit has been identified, according to the French broadcaster Canal Plus but the bad news for Red Bull and Toro Rosso there is no quick fix to the problem.

Problems across both Renault-powered teams marred the French marque’s weekend in China last weekend, after which Cyril Abiteboul said he hoped a fix could be identified and put in place in time for Bahrain, despite the turnaround of mere days.

But the latest news is alarming, as Canal Plus reports that the issue is in fact a fundamental flaw with the actual piston. Abiteboul is quoted as saying there can be “no solution within the next six weeks”.

I was thinking that perhaps some of you have a particular race that is a favorite, and for which you would like to do the preview.

1   Australian Grand Prix   Albert Park   March 13 – 15
2   Malaysian Grand Prix   Sepang International Circuit   March 27 – 29
3   Chinese Grand Prix   Shanghai International Circuit   April 10 – 12   Forum   Book a tour
4   Bahrain Grand Prix   Bahrain International Circuit   April 17 – 19
5   Spanish Grand Prix   Circuit de Catalunya   May 8 – 10
6   Monaco Grand Prix   Monte-Carlo   May 21 – 24
7   Canadian Grand Prix   Circuit Gilles Villeneuve   June 5 – 7
