The daunting Peraltada corner, scene of one of the greatest F1 passes of all time, is to be mutilated beyond recognition ahead of A1GP's next visit to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico. (From Maximum Motorsport, sister site to F1 Fanatic).
"Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire has signed up for F1 biopic The Limit, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie is based on Michael Cannell's new book Limit, which tells the story of real-life friends and racing rivals Phil Hill and Wolfgang von Trips."
I don't know if this is a real advert or not, but it looks cool.
Hugely detailed analysis of BBC's F1 coverage.
Look at Ferrari F1 car telemetry on their re-designed site.
Fernando Alonso: "We'll have to see what they decide on the 14th. But it's difficult because you have to work on the whole car. It's not just adding the diffuser and suddenly the car is a second quicker. The diffuser makes you go fast if you have a new front end, new sidepods, a new engine cover. You have to rebuild the whole car and that would take a lot of months. We'll see what happens. It's a complicated issue and the championship could be more or less decided on the 14th. If the diffusers are legal, the Brawns are going to be nearly unreachable for any other team."
The diffuser debacle explained.
Rubens Barrichello on Jenson Button: "We respect each other very much. But we both want to win. It is like we love other away from the track, but we hate each other when we are driving. So, it is a common thing between drivers, but the most important thing is that it is fair and honest."
Lewis Hamilton: "I was sat on the grid thinking, 'Shall I take it a bit easy into the first corner, knowing it's a long race, and be patient… or shall I just go for it and try to overtake as many cars as I can before Turn One?' In the end, I decided to be cautious: I knew there was likely to be trouble going into the first corner and I didn't want to be part of it. Then, after that, I just put my foot down, and I didn't back off for the entire race."
"At Albert Park last weekend, 29-year-old South African race driver Alan van der Merwe made his debut as medical car driver, and he will remain in the role for the whole 2009 season."
Nico Rosberg: "In Melbourne it was obvious that it just increases the danger so much. The visibility is so difficult, you can't even see the edges of the track in some corners. I was driving into the sun and that's not what racing is about. So I really hope they reconsider that. Even moving it forward by one hour or something will help us massively. It was just the last part of the race that was the really problematic time."
Sebastien Buemi: "The people who say this don't understand anything about racing. If you look at the car we had last year in GP2, and the comparison with my teammate, I was a lot better. Now being in F1, everyone knows what a Toro Rosso can do, and I could do the job."
"A senior source in the Brackley-based team has told the Guardian that they have been intentionally holding back in some sessions, saying it would be "foolish to annihilate people" at the start of a world championship they believe they can win."
