Paul Ricard Test – 134 laps for Sebastian • The Pirelli test ends with a 'marathon'
Le Castellet, 26 January – With nine planned runs completed today, the Pirelli test drew to a close. It was an opportunity to fire up the engines after a two month break, courtesy of a special test to look at 2016 wet weather tyres. The distances planned for today's running were much bigger than yesterday, with longer runs to evaluate the behaviour of the prototype tyres in variable track conditions.

INFINITI RED BULL RACING PREVIEW THE ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX
INFINITI RED BULL RACING PREVIEW THE ABU DHABI GRAND PRIX Daniel Ricciardo Q1: You won three races last year, but perhaps your best performance came in Abu Dhabi. Fair assessment? Ricciardo: Honestly yeah, I think it really was my best weekend of 2014. It wasn't a win but I nailed qualifying. I nailed the race. I nailed the whole thing. Pace, consistency, everything was awesome and it got me from the back of the grid to fourth, so yes, in terms of pure performance, it was my best race. Q2: Yas Marina isn't an obvious Daniel Ricciardo happ...[Read more...]

KVYAT FINISHES SEVENTH, RICCIARDO 12TH AT THE BRAZIL GRAND PRIX DANIIL KVYAT, Finish Position: 7th Start Position: 6th* 'Today we extracted pretty much the maximum out of what we could have done. Unfortunately we got undercut by Force India at the first pit stop which compromised our race a bit. After that I was following Hulkenberg all the time, and it was quite hard to find a place to overtake. We were stuck behind him trying to attack, but they were controlling us in a straight line so it wasn't easy. I got in DRS range a couple of times, but it d...[Read more...]
KVYAT FINISHES FOURTH, RICCIARDO FIFTH AT THE MEXICO GRAND PRIX
KVYAT FINISHES FOURTH, RICCIARDO FIFTH AT THE MEXICO GRAND PRIX DANIIL KVYAT, Finish Position: 4th Start Position: 4th 'As a team I think today we did a perfect job, scoring solid points from a solid race. The podium was very close and we were fighting until the end, but on the restart after the safety car we didn't have enough pace on the straight and Williams went full bananas, so Bottas passed me quite easily. It was a shame about not getting on the podium. I thought we had it and we deserved it today, and maybe without the safety car we would hav...[Read more...]
2015 Mexican Grand Prix – Preview
 The 2015 Formula One World Championship season continues with Round Seventeen, the Mexican Grand Prix, from Mexico City Lewis Hamilton Sunday in Austin is all a bit of a blur. The race was so, so crazy and it wasn't until a few moments after I crossed the line that I realised that I'd done it! To be honest, it still hasn't quite settled in. To match Ayrton in winning three titles was always a big ambition of mine and it just doesn't feel real. I can't express how grateful I a...[Read more...]

RICCIARDO FINISHES 10TH, KVYAT GETS A DNF AT THE U.S. GRAND PRIX DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: 10th, Start Position: 3rd 'The beginning was really fun between both Mercs and both Red Bulls. It was a good four-way battle. To see the Mercs not getting away from us was awesome. I was enjoying that. In the lead we were quite quick for a few laps and it felt like old times. That obviously didn't last long and once we put the slicks on we just didn't have the pace. We struggled with the warm up with the tires and also struggled a lot with braking today...[Read more...]

INFINITI RED BULL RACING PREVIEW THE U.S. AND MEXICAN GRAND PRIX Daniel Ricciardo Q1: So Daniel, what turns you into the head cheerleader for the United States Grand Prix? What do you like about Austin? Ricciardo: Everything! I love Austin. Great track, great city, great food, great fans, great people in general, great hotel. Basically, great. Q2: Start with the track: What do you particularly enjoy about the Circuit of The Americas? Ricciardo: For a modern-day circuit with lots of runoff, they've done the best job possible. They've created a t...[Read more...]

With hindsight, you could say we could have run a slightly better strategy, but you can never be completely sure how these things will turn out and you never stop learning in this respect. It was nice to see all the people that came here to support me today. ...[Read more...]
INFINITI RED BULL RACING: RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW
INFINITI RED BULL RACING: RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW Daniil Kvyat Q1: It's home race time. Can you count the number of times you've given interviews about the Russian GP? Kvyat: Impossible to count – hundreds? I have talked about it a lot, but it's the same for any driver: The home race is always the busiest. So, what do you want to know about – the track? Q2: Well, last year we couldn't talk about it, as no one had driven on the finished product before. So what did you make of it? Kvyat: I would describe it as a classic modern-style track...[Read more...]
Russian Grand Prix – A low grip track
Russian Grand Prix – A low grip track • Not yet time to evaluate our season
Maranello, 6 October –'There's a special and spectacular ambience to the Grand Prix in Sochi, set within the Olympic Village on the shores of the Black Sea,' explains Alberto Antonini, Scuderia Ferrari Head of Communications to ferrari.com. 'The same cannot be said for the circuit itself: there's a fast section that the drivers tackle flat out between turns 3 and 4. The others are quite slow and feature 90 degree corners. Back for this race ...[Read more...]
2015 Russian Grand Prix – Preview
 The 2015 Formula One World Championship season continues with Round Fifteen, the Russian Grand Prix, from Sochi Lewis Hamilton Suzuka was a really special weekend for me and another fantastic result for the team. Everyone is doing such an incredible job once again this season and every bit of this success is well deserved. The car was unbelievable to drive in Japan, so hopefully it'll be more of the same at the remaining races - starting in Sochi. Last year was the first expe...[Read more...]
Scuderia Ugolini: 1959 Formula One Season
 While the name Ferrari is recognized the world-over, Ugolini, on the other hand, is only a name recognized by those very knowledgeable of motor racing and football. However, the name is nearly as vitally important to the world of motor sport. In 1959, the name was well-known and well-respected. Today, however, it is a name without any meaning. Nello Ugolini's career would be overshadowed by many of those in which he associated. Still, his would be a life spent chasing passions and living ful...[Read more...]
Monaco GP 1990: Alesi Arrives
 By the conclusion of the Monaco Grand Prix on the 27th of May, 1990, it was more than obvious Jean Alesi had arrived in Formula One. The reality was he had proven the point even before the end of the race. Overcast conditions dominated the principality as the cars lined up on the grid. Sitting right behind the race's defending champion would be a young Frenchman. Seeing the competition from his rear view mirror was something Ayrton Senna was quite accustomed to. However, the Brazilian found h...[Read more...]
1930 French GP: Like Bringing a Howitzer to a Knife Fight
 How preposterous the sight! Among the 25 cars lined up for the 1930 French Grand Prix there would be one large supercharged Bentley. It would be akin to a sportscar prototype lining up alongside a Formula One car on the streets of Monaco. But this wasn't Monaco. And, if everything aligned just right the results would be too remarkable to tell. Sir Henry 'Tim' Birkin was one of the famed 'Bentley Boys' that had come to dominate Le Mans throughout the late 1920s. Son to a wealthy family that ma...[Read more...]
John Fisher: 1959 Formula One Season
 Throughout the history of Formula One there have been many names that have come and gone, many of which barely make a mark on the sport other than in the history books. However, in 1959, Bruce Halford would help John Fisher to make an impressive mark, albeit a rather brief one. Later on in his life John Fisher would become Lord Mayor of Bristol. However, in 1959, Fisher was rather simply a motor racing fan with some extra money. And, in those days, it meant he could go racing for a relatively...[Read more...]
Schell Shocked: 1958 Dutch Grand Prix
 All throughout his career Harry Schell would be recognized as a very consistent, and professional, racer. While he was known to be quick, he was not among the very best of his generation. But, there would be those moments when Schell drove like the best. The result was an American driver that had the potential to surprise. One of those moments would come in 1958. Monza, 1956. The attrition for the Italian Grand Prix would be disconcerting. Though relatively new, the steep banking would be pun...[Read more...]

Harry Schell: American Bleue
 Americans would officially set foot on French soil during the Second World War in 1944. However, after a few years, the troops would leave, yet, there would be one that would remain. He had been in Europe long before and he would be there still when the Americans returned in the 1950s. Selim Lawrence 'Laury' Schell would lead the way. Though conceived by American parents, Laury would be actually be born in Switzerland in the late 19th century. At that time, the automobile was still very much ...[Read more...]

I had a completely new car, so that wasn't so easy. We had difficulties with the tires, the brakes and the overtake button, which made life complicated. In the end, I did manage to overtake some people, but it wasn't great. It's frustrating and annoying, but there was nothing I co...[Read more...]

RICCIARDO FINISHES SECOND, KVYAT SIXTH AT THE SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: 2nd, Start Position: 2nd 'I think this was our best chance of a win and we got close, so we can be proud of what we did. We have made the most of our opportunities here. At the start Seb just went away and then I was coming back to him and if it hadn't been for the Safety Car, we'd have got pretty close and maybe an undercut would have been possible at the pit stop. Making both stops under the safety car affected our chances, and I think that dictated t...[Read more...]
INFINITI RED BULL RACING PREVIEW THE SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX
INFINITI RED BULL RACING PREVIEW THE SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX Daniel Ricciardo Q1: Daniel, it's traditional for a driver to start the Singapore preview by saying it's a bit hot and quite humid. Ricciardo: Well it is hot! And very humid! I think it's all those tall buildings downtown – the heat doesn't have anywhere to go. It's the most physical challenge of the year. It's the only race of the season where you crack open your visor to let in some cool air and instantly wish you hadn't because it's hotter outside. By the warm-up lap, your chilled ...[Read more...]
2015 Singapore Grand Prix – Preview
 The 2015 Formula One World Championship season continues with Round Thirteen, the Singapore Grand Prix, from the Marina Bay Street Circuit Lewis Hamilton Monza was an awesome weekend for me – one of the best I've had in Formula One. The car this team has built is just incredible and I can't thank them enough for all their hard work. Of course, it was a shame for Nico and the crew to have the retirement – but I know he'll bounce back and I'm looking forward to another battle in Singa...[Read more...]

RICCIARDO FINISHES 8TH, KVYAT 10TH FOR INFINITI RED BULL RACING AT THE ITALIAN GRAND PRIX DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: 8th, Start Position: 19th 'It was a great result for the team considering where we started and the characteristics of this track. It was sweet taking that eighth place on the last lap from Ericsson. I am very happy with the chassis. The car was handling really well, and we were able to fight with a Ferrari and a Mercedes-powered car on a track where we lost out a lot on the straights. It wasn't an easy weekend for us, but I think the race was positive, and the...[Read more...]
DANY GETS WET AND WILD ON HOME SOIL
DANY GETS WET AND WILD ON HOME SOIL KAZAN, Russia – There's no greater test of a sports fan's commitment to the cause than how he or she reacts to a drop of rain. If the immediate reaction upon feeling the first watery splash is to leg it for the nearest shelter then you know they ain't the real deal. Well, there was no sign of that kind of fair weather fandom in the Russian city of Kazan earlier this week. Despite bracing conditions, chill winds and rain that switched from light showers to cascading downpours in seconds...[Read more...]

I had a lot of overtaking opportunities and the car performed well. The strategy from the team to keep me out during the virtual safety car was good, and we were able to have a strong last stint. The team did a good job and we scored some solid points. We should be happy with the performance today, and hopefully we can continue this form over the next few races.' DANIE...[Read more...]
