I know what youre saying. It seems like someone has already smashed into it. There are lots of forks like that in racing though.

Yes, in particular if you happen to be driving a jet dryer. Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of those tasked with drying a wet race track as the initials J.P.M. :-)

Which is getting to be absurd lately.

Hulk dominated Formula BMW in 05
Hulk dominated A1GP in 06-07
Hulk dominated in Formula 3 in 08 (third in 07)
Hulk more or less dominated GP2 in 09

Is there a non monetary reason the kid is not in a Ferrari/Mclaren/RBR/Mercedes?

What a joke.

The money hungry penguin sets the tone here.

Huh? Force India just dump both their drivers? I'll admit to being new to F1 (this has been my first season watching it) but that strikes me as a really weird move.

It would not be a normal move but if theyre getting Perez and Hulkenberg it would sure as hell be a smart one.

Bad news for everyone else....Newey is on the case:

Red Bull Chief Engineer Adrian Newey believes the new FIA regulations that come into effect next year will make for an exciting 2014 Formula One season.

These regulations require the F1 teams to design their cars with a V6 turbo engine as well as incorporate significant aerodynamic changes to both the wings both at the front and the rears of the cars.

The new designs will also make use of the power that the Energy Recovery Systems (ERS) generate, something that is out of the designers' hands.

"The aerodynamic changes are big, but they are smaller than the changes we had in 2009," Newey told the official Formula One website on Tuesday.

"So yes, there is the chance that one team comes up with a car that is better than their rivals', but on top of that you have the engine changes.

"What is absolutely unclear is whether one engine manufacturer will be able to come up with a significant advantage.

"But the car that will brush aside all others will be a car having the combination of good engine and good chassis - if one side is letting you down you will have a problem.

"Who will come up with the ideal combination? That's the big guessing game for all of us and will add spice to the 2014 season."

Even though the new changes are expected to level the playing field in the paddock somewhat, Newey admitted that he is already looking for loopholes within the new FIA rules.

"The first thing that you do is to read the regulations very, very carefully," the Briton continued.

"You try to read what they actually say, rather than what they intend to say, as this is not always the same thing.

"After that I'm actually breaking it down into bite-size chunks. Then you try to understand from the regulations the aerodynamic and mechanical packaging that appears to be the best solutions for those different areas.

"You go away and research them and at some point try to bring it all back together again. For me that is the important bit: the end product should be a whole and not pieces thrown together into one cluster.

"Does it still look a good idea after 24 hours? That decides whether it gets a tick or a cross.

"Actually, you develop a sensibility for that procedure. The brain is an amazing thing: you might be doing something completely different - maybe making a cup of tea - and suddenly you know right from wrong!"

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

Is Bernie trying to hand-off to Horner?
http://www.jamesallenonf1.com/2013/11/ecclestone-horner-and-the-future-of-f1/

Looks official....Brawn out:
After months of speculation, Mercedes have confirmed that Ross Brawn will leave the team at the end of this year.

The 59-year-old team principal's position at the Brackley squad had been in doubt for some months after Mercedes opted to bring in former McLaren technical director Paddy Lowe.

From the get-go it was clear that Lowe had arrived with the intention of taking over from Brawn as team boss.

Mercedes, though, were still keen on the Englishman remaining at Brackley.

Brawn, however, made it known that he would only do so if he retained sole leadership of the team.

But with Merc switching to a two-pronged structure, Brawn has now decided to walk away.

Mercedes confirmed his departure on Thursday.

"First of all and most importantly, we must say thank you to Ross," said non-executive director Niki Lauda.

"When you consider the step that has been made from finishing fifth in 2012 to the second place that we have secured this season, he has been the architect of this success.

"He put the plans in place to recruit key people since early 2011, and the performance this season shows that the team is on the right track.

"We have had long discussions with Ross about how he could continue with the team but it is a basic fact that you cannot hold somebody back when they have chosen to move on. Ross has decided that this is the right time to hand over the reins to Toto and Paddy and we respect his decision.

"Toto and Paddy are the right people to lead our team in 2014 and beyond."
