Ferrari sends a message to Bernie:


Ferrari president Sergio Marchionne has urged Bernie Ecclestone to devise an exit plan in order to ensure a smooth transition for Formula 1 when his inevitable departure occurs.
As the sport's commercial rights holder, CVC Capital Partners, seeks to eventually sell its controlling stake in the sport, the 85-year-old Ecclestone has said that current interested parties would like him to remain in charge as chief executive of Formula 1.
But Marchionne believes a proper succession plan should be figured out nevertheless.
"Ecclestone knows that he is not going to be there forever and maybe this is also connected to the future of FOM," commented Marchionne.
"The real challenge for Bernie is to get organised. He needs to come up with a system where maybe some responsibilities can be developed differently.
"We have a responsibility to deliver a certain level of sound management continuity of Formula 1 with FIA and with FOM. So we really need to make the most of Bernie's ability to develop this sport in the best possible way. Believe me it is not easy.
"Bernie is quite a character, but he is a very nice guy and has an incredible strength. I don't know what I will do when I'm his age. What he has done over the last 10 years is incredible and he's still there."
Marchionne also believes that steps should be taken for the sport to appeal to a wider demographic base, and target a younger audience.
"Bernie should pave the way to prepare the future of the F1 world. This age issue is there, so we should ask ourselves: are we appealing to young people?
"This sport has great potential which has not been expressed yet. We need to make it entertaining because if everything is predictable, it gets boring.
"We should try to deliver more unpredictability, so to speak, so that results are unpredictable."

Young people are not the target audience; they have no money and don't wear Rolex. :-)

Actually, most of them don't buy Ferraris either.

Best radio chatter of last season:



They pass me on the straights like in GP2. It is embarrassing, very embarrassing…"
"GP2 engine, GP2. Aaargh!"
The most memorable quote of the season? Fernando Alonso's patience amid a dismal season snaps, prompting this stinging veridct on Honda's performance at the Japanese manufacturer's home circuit.

"Fantastico. Numero Uno is back - Ferrari is back!"
"Unbelievable... you're magic!"
At the other end of the scale, meanwhile, Ferrari sing Sebastian Vettel's praises after he returns the team to winning ways in Malaysia and Singapore.

"I've lost this race haven't I!?"
Lewis Hamilton did his fair share of winning in 2015, but Monaco wasn't on the list after an ill-fated decision to pit while enjoying a dominant lead.

"I don’t want. Already I have big problems now, driving and looking like amateurs."
Fernando Alonso lets rip in Canada

"Fantastic job, fantastic! Incredible - one of the best races of your career! I'm so proud..."
Belgium, and Lotus sing Romain Grosjean's praises after his stunning podium - but the Frenchman can't respond as he chokes back the tears.

"We need to swap positions okay? Swap positions..." (Toro Rosso)
"NO!"
Across at Toro Rosso, Max Verstappen displays the sort of inner steel and conviction that make him such a formidable competitor when asked to give way to team mate Carlos Sainz in Singapore.

“We need to open this gap right up. Don’t ask questions, just execute.” (Mercedes to Hamilton, Monza)
“I have to say those last few laps were not cool, man...”(Hamilton after the chequered flag)
From one set of team orders to another, as Mercedes mysteriously instruct Hamilton to increase his lead in Italy. A concern over tyre pressures - and the looming threat of investigation - would later transpire to be the cause.

"Lewis is driving very slowly, so get him to speed up..."
Hamilton is at the centre of another mini-storm in China, as team mate Nico Rosberg complains he is being held up and backed into the clutches of the chasing Ferraris.

"I don’t want, I don’t want. Already I have big problems now, driving with this and looking like amateurs."
A different racing concern prevails at McLaren, as Alonso insists he'd rather have fun while there are still cars within his sights in Canada.

"No power. Oh we cannot race like this..."
"Okay Fernando, we are racing Massa behind to the end." (McLaren)
"I love your sense of humour!"
Alonso in fact became a Say what? favourite during the season, thanks in part to these put downs in Monza and Sochi.

"Thanks. I'll give him a bit of ****."
On the other side of the Red Bull garage, Christian Horner and Daniel Ricciardo plan to give Vettel a bit of the ribbing after the Australian sets the fastest lap - and finishes second - in Singapore.

"If you can still hear me, what happened there mate?"
Red Bull's concern is obvious after Kvyat's massive crash in Japan

"Last lap Kimi, last lap. All or nothing!"
Russia produced this exchange between Kimi Raikkonen and Ferrari, moments before he attempted to dive down the inside of Valtteri Bottas at Turn 4...

"What the **** did he do!?"
...a move that didn't go down well with Bottas, who was pitched into the barriers and out of the race.

"I don't know.. .don't know what the hell that was."
Rosberg is similarly confused in Austin, as a mistake costs him victory - and allows Hamilton to claim the title.

"What happened to Lewis at the end of his stint?! Did his tyres degrade?" (Rosberg)
"Affirm. He couldn't keep the pace." (Mercedes)
"I'm faster but I can't get close..." (Hamilton)
Rosberg has his revenge in the later rounds though, with his pace in Brazil in particular allowing him to twist the knife when Hamilton drops back due to tyre issues - although the Briton has a different take on the race.

"Can I overtake? I can do it on the back straight..."
"Too late."
Over at Williams, a team orders row brews at Silverstone as Valtteri Bottas's hopes of overtaking Felipe Massa come to naught.

"I’m so happy with how I raced. Not bad for an old man!"
Bottas and Massa still collect four podiums between them in 2015 - with Massa enjoying some gentle ribbing from his team following his first rostrum in Austria.

"Wow! Well done guys. That was very hard!"
There is delight at Force India meanwhile as Sergio Perez delivers a superb - and against-the-odds - podium in Russia.

"Well done Pastor. Wow. Absolutely brilliant."
"I should have known really that he's mental..." (Button on clashing with Maldonado)
Pastor Maldonado also comes in for praise after a remarkable pass on Max Verstappen in Austria - but the other side of his driving comes out in Singapore, much to Button's chagrin.

"And rub your tummy and pat your head?"
Button also loses patience with a string of driving requests from McLaren in Singapore.

"I did a **** job today."
Sebastian Vettel on an error-strewn race in Mexico City

"P6! P6!" (Laughing)
"That was a good show of where we are - so far away..."
Two differing reactions from Button, but his shock of claiming sixth at the flag in Austin conveys a very similar message to his frank appraisal of the team's performance in the Abu Dhabi season finale.

"Wonderful guys. Thank you so much for everything we have been through. I'll miss you, I love you, and I do hope we work together again!"
Romain Grosjean bids an emotional goodbye to Lotus in Abu Dhabi.

"Who was in front of me in the last three corners?" (Alonso)
"That was Stevens and Grosjean..." (McLaren)
"Idiots!"
Alonso has his own message for Grosjean, and Marussia's Will Stevens, at Yas Marina.

"This is like sending swimmers to swim with weights on their legs."
Vettel comes over all poetic in Monaco, where he isn't best pleased with what the speed of the safety car is doing to his tyre temperatures.

"I did a **** job today."
And a more straightforward appraisal from the four-time champion after an error strewn showing in Mexico.

“Can you now tell me what happened at the start? As [far] as I know, I was in the right position and everything. I just want to understand...”
From one Ferrari driver to the other, as Kimi Raikkonen grasps for answers for his woeful start from second on the grid at Monza.

“Ok Fernando, we understand the issue, we are ok to keep running - it shouldn't affect us.”
Hungary qualifying, and McLaren confidently reassure Fernando Alonso that all is well with his Honda-powered machine - mere seconds before it grinds to a halt during qualifying...

"This is the greatest moment of my life. Thank you guys so much, I'm so grateful. To my family I love you all. Thank you."
The last word goes to Hamilton, who chokes back the emotion after sealing a historic third world championship crown.

Never one to mince his words, Kimi Raikkonen was an obvious Say what? favourite in 2015 - so much so that we've compiled a small selection of his most memorable offerings:
"Come on, get that McLaren out of the way" - on trying to lap former team mate Alonso in China
"Come on, blue flags! They just don't want to move, these people!" - on dealing with traffic in Bahrain
"Do you want me to keep doing laps and laps, because I get nothing out of this..." - on churning out the laps in FP2 in Spain
"What the **** is this Marussia doing? He has been three corners now in the middle of the road" - on the driving of one particular backmarker...
"Did you see what that guy [Ricciardo] did? He just hit me and I went wide and that's not very nice" - taking affront to being barged out of fifth place by Ricciardo at Monaco.
"That guy keeps pushing me off every time when I'm next to him. So if that's legal, then I will do the same next time" - and taking umbrage with Max Verstappen's aggresive style in Austin.

Would be great to see Prost running the factory Renault team.
Currently, he has a Formula E team.
I'm sure he wouldn't come cheap (nor should he be)...

Renault won't achieve overnight success:


Success will not come overnight for Renault in the wake of their buyout of Lotus warns Mario Illien, whose company Ilmor has been signed up by the French carmaker to help power its return to the top in formula one.
Amid the struggle so far in F1’s new ‘power unit’ era, Renault’s premier partner Red Bull enlisted the services of Illien – a renowned F1 engine guru – last year.
As the relationship between Renault and Red Bull broke down, however, the full fruits of Illien’s work did not materialise.
But he has now been signed up directly by Renault for the new works team effort from 2016.
“I signed a contract with Renault two weeks ago,” Swiss Illien confirmed to the Sonntagsblick newspaper.
Ilmor is engaged across the world of motor sport, and Illien said he wants 2016 to see the company record its 300th victory.
But as for the F1 project, he warned that Renault may have to wait for the top step of the podium.
“Time is too short” for victory, Illien is quoted as saying by veteran correspondent Roger Benoit in an interview over the holiday period. “First, we must improve the efficiency.”
The wait for improvement proved too much for Red Bull last year, as the frustration led to the re-branding of the team’s engines as ‘TAG Heuer’ for 2016. Junior team Toro Rosso, meanwhile, jumped ship to Ferrari power.
“I have to say there was a little bit of frustration on the track,” admitted Renault managing director Cyril Abiteboul. “We would have liked to do a better job for Red Bull and Toro Rosso.”
“But we always knew it was a long-term game to fix the issues we had. So hopefully we now have the strategy, the time and the resources to do that in the next few years,” he added.

Damn. It feels like racing in general is quickly going out of fashion. The newer generations just don't give a ****. Can't really fault them, they got their own thing.





Even if it's so completely lame. The Fountain of Youth is overrated. Can you imagine spending the next few hundred years with these self obsessed texting softies? Bury me face down, bitches. Vaya con Dios, brah.

btw, if anyone is interested in experiencing some hardcore racing for cheap, you should check out briggs lo206 karting.SEALED $600 engine that you can put on a $600 kart, and pull 3 gs in the corners.

here is a lap trace showing cornering force of over 3 gs in a banked corner at the track where i race. move wrong in the corner and you go on 2 wheels and almost get spit out if not careful. in this particular corner, on a hot day, youll get lightheaded every time and feel likeyoure about to pass out. this engine makes only about 12hp but at 375lbs race weight, it is lighter than the shifter karts and can corner just as hard.



a vid of what it looks like at the national level( i only race club level but its the exact same SEALED engine)

Varsha is out on IMSA broadcasts.
Maybe ol' Bob was expensive...who knows?
Whatever the case, I do know IMSA broadcasts don't attract many viewers.


The young ones don't seem to care about racing anymore.
It's just us old farts now...
