He doesn't need the money from them given his outside ventures and a weee bit of comp while driving so yeah, why not go take a spin at Ferrari?

The truly shocking thing would be he and Leclerc there at the same time. That will be spicy. But honestly drivers today do seem a little more professional and respectful of each other than some of the childish reactions of some of the old guard.


I agree! The comments he made last year about getting a seat on the board seemed like a huge stretch and those Germans are very clannish.
As far as money is concerned it has been reported that he made about 35 million last year and George about 12. But he wanted to be the highest paid driver and reportedly wanted to make more than the 50 million that Verstappen makes. Given that his best days are certainly behind him that was unlikely to happen. I doubt that Ferrari is going to pay him that much either…

Ferrari might. They do have deep pockets and are pretty desperate for good results, and it's hard to find a more consistent driver than the Hamster.

I gotta say Lew has made a lot of mental errors the last two or three years, not so consistent.

More than Carlos Sainz or Charles LeClerc?

Well, yeah, he'd be an improvement for the red team. It'll be very interesting and lot of fun to watch. Built in drama.

When your car always needs to be .3 to .6 faster to be competitive, it’s always on the edge and much easier to make mistakes, you can’t leave a margin for the unexpected.

Christian Horner on the hot seat now, not sure what it's about at this point.

Toto and his wife had some sort of alleged recent issue concerning confidential info that got shot down quickly.

This article seems to indicate that some sort of internal power struggle is behind this one but who knows.

Sprint Format changes for 2024

quote:

F1 Sprint will return for a fourth season in 2024 and a format tweak is set to make the spectacle more engaging than ever.

As outlined in December, Brazil will host its fourth consecutive Sprint weekend, with Austria to stage its third, Austin and Qatar returning for a second year, and China and Miami joining the line-up for the first time.

On Monday, the F1 Commission met to discuss a range of matters and, shortly after the gathering concluded, a Sprint format update was communicated.

For this year, the Sprint Shootout will move from Saturday to Friday, following an initial free practice session for track acclimatisation and set-up work.

The 100km Sprint will then take place on Saturday, ahead of qualifying for the Grand Prix later that day. The Grand Prix itself will remain on Sunday.

The regulatory refinements for these changes will be presented to the World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) on February 28.

Away from the Sprint, a proposal to increase the power unit allocation to four per driver for the 2024 and 2025 seasons was agreed.

Additionally, DRS activation for the race will be anticipated to one lap as opposed to two laps after the start of the race, or the re-start following a Safety Car.

The Sprint format changes are OK, but I think they also need to release the cars from Parc Ferme after the Sprint so changes can be made for GP qualifying.

Not sure about changing DRS activation from second lap to first. Not sure that needs changing.

I do agree on parc ferme release.
DRS, given a clean first lap, let em have it. With the short[er] sprint, spice it up.
Just have to hope, with 'real' quali being post-sprint that some aren't ineligible due to sprint damage/crashes.

Cars can get wrecked/damaged in FP3 too and miss qualy. They usually let them start the race from the pit lane, based on being competitive in the practices. I can see something similar happening with sprint damage. The cars will get to race.

No doubt they'll get to race [penalty/pitlane start], thinking about the frontrunners having an incident that's more likely in a sprint race than in a FP3 setting.

I believe it's some kinds of online sports book like fanduel & similar outfits.
They'll run ad Kick F1 in countries where gambling advertising isn't allowed, similar to stripping alcohol brand in the ME countries.

Anyone know why Christian Horner is under investigation? I've done a half ass search of the last two weeks and just found he's under investigation.

Not much being told publicly, yet.
