“It now seems likely that manufacturers will be able to upgrade their engines after the start of the season as well as before it.”
“The writ asks Valencia’s courts to investigate alleged irregularities, including how Camps allowed a private company with no experience in motorsport and only 12 employees, to operate the multimillion-dollar event.”
“If you’re good enough and Red Bull put the faith in you to go and race, why not? It’s good for the sport and for the fans.”
“The latest Audi hiring is also interesting as the team’s new technical director from January 1st will be Jorg Zander, who has spent the last five years running his own engineering business (called JZ-Engineering) in Switzerland. Prior to that he was the deputy technical director of Honda F1 Racing and was involved in the design work of the Brawn 2009 car.”
Mr E is at the height of his game. There is no one in his league in #F1. The sport is designed in his image. 2015 will be a revelation.

Comment of the day
More great moments from from this year’s championship.
My own top things that made 2014 great:
The Red Bull Ring back on the calendar. Well I suppose I would say that’s a good one seeing as its my own write up on what its like to visit.
Jules Bianchi grabbing those points in Monaco, five months before he sadly became the seasons low point in Japan.
The end to Red Bull dominance. But they still showed that they are still a force not to be dismissed. Especially with the ever-smiling Aussie in the driving seat.
The title going down to the wire without the stupid double points.
Mexico getting back onto the calendar for next season.
Silverstones’ weather giving things a shake up.

Happy birthday to Dan M, Huhhii and Tony Hamilton!
On this day in F1

If you’ve enjoyed reading and participating in F1 Fanatic this year and would like to help the site continue to develop next year and beyond, please consider becoming an F1 Fanatic Supporter:
