Kurt Busch will become only the 4th driver ever to compete at the Coca-Cola 600 and the Indianapolis 500 on the same day. He will be driving for Michael Andretti.

I always thought brother Kyle would have been a good candidate for open wheel, even F1 if the circumstances were right. He has some serious car control skills, and he takes crap from no one.

Whats that have to do with anything? The people wanting to sponsor the race probably have 99% of the national wealth.

Just in case anyone doubts the extent of RB's problems:


Red Bull’s early-season technical crisis is plumbing new depths, with news the reigning world champions are calling upon junior team Toro Rosso for help.

Italy’s authoritative Autosprint reports that Red Bull has asked the Faenza based sister team for assistance on the all-new ‘brake by wire’ technology, which is tied in with the highly-sophisticated ‘ERS’ systems.

“The fact that Red Bull wants to use someone else’s (system) says a lot about the size of Red Bull’s other problems,” said veteran correspondent Alberto Antonini.

One of those bigger problems is with extreme “turbo lag”, Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko admits.

“You step on the gas,” he told Austrian television Servus TV, “but the power comes all of a sudden, the wheels spin, the car slides and you lose speed.

“We are working with Renault on the test benches day and night to improve the situation for Melbourne,” added Marko.

World champion Sebastian Vettel, however, is expecting to struggle next weekend.

“If half the drivers fail to finish, then maybe we could take a few points,” he said.

“At the moment we have bigger problems to solve than just the pace.”




FIA set to change qualifying format:



FIA set to change qualifying formIn an attempt to stop the final qualifying session from turning into a farce, the FIA are expected to make some adjustments to format for the 2014 season....

During last week's second pre-season test in Bahrain, the F1 Strategy Group was concerned that some drivers would sit out the Q3 sessions during the season in an attempt to save their tyres for the race.

The tweaks to the qualifying format would allow the drivers to start the race on the tyres they used in Q2 instead of Q3.

The 10 drivers that take part in Q3 will also be given an extra set of tyres that they may only use in the final session.

Other changes that are expected to be made include the shortening of Q1 from 20 to 18 minutes, and the lengthening of Q3 from 10 to 12 minutes.

Although the above-mentioned changes still need to be ratified by the FIA World Motor Sport Council, it seems a foregone conclusion that they will be accepted after FIA president Jean Todt voiced his approval of the modifications.

"It's constructive to have a little review of qualifying. Some people say, 'no we cannot go out in Q3 because we don't have enough tyres. We are not talking about getting involved in a revolution. By doing a little refinement, a little finetuning, we can get at something [better]," Todt told Autosport in a recent interview.

Other changes the Strategy Group considered were revisions to power unit homologation issues and the possibility of expanding the awarding of double points to the final three races.

Both those proposals were voted down.

Fans want to see Vettel lose, says Ecclestone

The lack of diversity in championship crowns usually impacts any sport's affinity level.

BERLIN, March 05, 2014 (AFP) - Formula One fans want to see four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel lose to make Grand Prix races more appealing, Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone said in an interview on Wednesday.

"Many people want to see Vettel lose because it would finally make it (the World Drivers' Championship) more exciting again," the 83-year-old Ecclestone
told German daily Bild.

The 26-year-old Vettel is looking to win his fifth straight world title when the season starts with the Australian Grand Prix on March 16.

The German was booed at some races last season when he won 13 of the 19 races.

Vettel endured a tough final testing session in Bahrain last weekend when there were problems with the new Red Bull car.

The German failed to complete a single lap in testing on Saturday due to electrical issues and problems with the car's Renault engine.

Williams' Felipe Massa posted the fastest time, clocking 1min 33.258secs, closely followed by Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton, who was just 0.06 seconds behind, while Vettel came in 18th-fastest overall with team-mate Daniel Ricciardo tenth.

Vettel blamed the new Renault engine for his woes, but Ecclestone refuted those claims, saying: "after all it allowed him to win the championship for the last four years."

Porsche flogs a lot of Martini logo merch based on their livery in the past. I wonder if that will change.

Reading between the lines, this doesn't sound good:

Luca di Montezemolo has urged fans to send Michael Schumacher their "affection and support" as he continues to wake up from his coma.

The seven-time World Champion, who won five of his Drivers' titles with Ferrari, remains in the Grenoble Hospital in France in a medically induced coma.

Schumacher was placed in the coma after suffering severe brain trauma in a skiing accident in Meribel back in December.

The German's doctors are still reportedly going through the wake-up process, however, of late there has been no official update on his conditions.

Speaking at the Geneva Motor Show, di Montezemolo told PA Sport: "Michael was, and still is, a very important person in my life.

"From 1996 onwards (when Schumacher joined Ferrari) so many things happened in the lives of both of us and, in the difficult times, Michael was always incredibly close to the team.

"What's happened to him was a real shock to me, after all the events we shared, and a great affection still remains.

"Michael, at the moment, needs that affection and support from everyone."

Hope he pulls through, he was my favorite driver when he raced and while he may have pulled a few dirty tricks (what champion doesn't) I always liked the fact he had a big smile on his face when standing on the podium!

In other news.

http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/sport/sport-headlines/mordor-grand-prix-announced-2014030684354

BERNIE Ecclestone has struck a deal to take Formula One to the land of Mordor, where the shadows lie.


Ecclestone’s suit of armour has booster heels
The Mordor Grand Prix will be on the F1 calendar from 2016, to the delight of the Black Land’s motorsport aficionados.

The deal to bring Formula One to the orc-rich land was facilitated by Ecclestone’s friend and business associate, the Witch-king of Angmar, who rubbished concerns over Mordor’s human rights record.

He said: “Media accusations of mass surveillance, hobbit torture and secret armies of Uruk-Hai are unfounded and holding back tourism.

“People always say that one does not simply walk into Mordor. We want to show them that one in fact drives into Mordor, ideally in a single-seat, open cockpit car in the company of champagne-drenched bikini models.”

Teams will race in a newly constructed course in the shadow of Mount Doom, under the all-seeing eye of the Watchful One.

Drivers will be challenged by the threat of incineration if they leave the track, though the possibility that they will be corrupted and enslaved by Sauron’s dark sorcery has been dismissed by race organisers.

Mordor overcame a period of domestic unrest to successfully host the Commonwealth Games and the Chess Olympiad, while the UNESCO-listed Black Gate has recently seen concerts by 50 Cent and Jennifer Lopez.

Formula 1 fan Tom Logan said: “This is great news for the sport. But everyone knows it’s still Nürburgring to rule them all.”
