Hungarian GP – A gamble that paid off
Hungarian GP – A gamble that paid off Marco Mattiacci: 'It was a great race and very pleasing to see our team fight back from an extremely complicated Saturday. Kimi and Fernando demonstrated just what they are capable of and the whole team was up to the task. However, this result is just a step on a journey which started a few months ago. Fernando's second place is a confidence booster and a sign that the major effort everyone is making to bring Ferrari back to the top is moving in the right direction, however we have to be realist...[Read more...]
Working even harder
Working even harder Maranello, 28 July – Scuderia Ferrari got back to Maranello from Hungary in high spirits, after securing its best result of the season so far, with Fernando Alonso finishing second and Kimi Raikkonen, who finished sixth, despite a rather dismal Saturday. Both men delivered performances worthy of their world champion status and the team made brave and well executed decisions when it came to sorting out the strategy for the two F14 Ts. The result was a valuable morale booster, coming as it ...[Read more...]
DANIEL WINS HUNGARIAN THRILLER
DANIEL WINS HUNGARIAN THRILLER BUDAPEST, Hungary – Daniel took a thrilling second career win with a brilliant drive at the Hungarian Grand Prix that saw him pass both Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso the final four laps. Sebastian, meanwhile finished seventh after an early safety car period compromised his chances of capitalizing on a front-row start. The race began in wet conditions, with the field opting to start on intermediate tires. Starting from fourth, Daniel lost two positions into Turn 1 in the tricky con...[Read more...]

VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX
VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX Sebastian Vettel I like the race and atmosphere at the Hungaroring and have good memories of the races there. Even though I have never won in Budapest, it is still on my to do list. It is quite a slow track but also one that can catch you out. It has some tight, twisty corners and is quite a bumpy track, so you cannot underestimate it. It is normally hot in Hungary for the race, which makes it a challenge to drive, but also makes a nice weekend for the fans watching. I really like the s...[Read more...]
'AWESOME FUN' IN HOCKENHEIM FOR SEB AND DAN
'AWESOME FUN' IN HOCKENHEIM FOR SEB AND DAN HOCKENHEIM, Germany – Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo both delivered thrilling performances in an action-packed German Grand Prix that saw Seb finish fourth and Dan sixth. At the front, Nico Rosberg took a fourth win of the season ahead of Williams' Valtteri Bottas. But with the championship leader finishing 20 seconds ahead of the Finn, spectators had to look further down the order for excitement. Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes delivered his share, powering through from 2...[Read more...]
Pastor Maldonado equals his best race finish so far this season at German GP
Pastor Maldonado equals his best race finish so far this season at German GP Lotus F1® Team driver Pastor Maldonado displayed good progress this weekend, equalling his season-best finish so far, during the 10th round of the 2014 Grand Prix Championship which took place at Hockenheim's GP circuit in Germany. Pastor Maldonado who begun from P18 on super-soft tyres, made slow and steady progress throughout the race. Sticking to a 2-pit stop strategy instead of the anticipated 3-stop, the Venezuelan fought with tenacity, tussling for placement mid-grid. He narrowly missed...[Read more...]

VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE GERMAN GRAND PRIX
VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE GERMAN GRAND PRIX Sebastian Vettel I always enjoy the atmosphere at the Hockenheimring. When you arrive at track in the morning, the circuit's already filled with fans, and when you're in the car you can see lots of German flags in the grandstands. The signing session is always very busy too. It's those little things I really enjoy about Hockenheim. We get a lot of encouragement. During practice you know that the fans in the grandstands are there to support you and stand by you, no matter what. Of course...[Read more...]

Podium for Dan, Seb fifth after epic duel
Podium for Dan, Seb fifth after epic duel NORTHAMPTON, England – Daniel Ricciardo took a deserved fourth podium finish of the season at the British Grand Prix after switching to a one-stop strategy that saw him fend off pressure from rivals behind and hold together his final set of tires for 37 laps until the checkered flag. Sebastian Vettel, meanwhile, finished fifth, the champion winning an epic battle with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso that defined the last third of the race. The race was won by Lewis Hamilton, who took his ...[Read more...]
Lots of Support for Lotus at Silverstone
Lots of Support for Lotus at Silverstone Lotus continue their Grand Prix battle In its 50th year of hosting the sport, Britain's Silverstone Circuit welcomed the 9th round of the 2014 Grand Prix Championship yesterday, and despite the warm support from British fans for our black and gold team, it was another thorny race for Lotus. The race weekend had not started well with Pastor Maldonado failing to qualify after he ran out of fuel. This resulted in him starting at the back of the grid, in P20. Romain fared slightly bet...[Read more...]
2014 British Grand Prix - Preview
 Round Nine of the 2014 Formula One World Championship brings us to Silverstone for the British Grand Prix, held at the Silverstone Circuit. Driver / Senior Management Quotes Lewis Hamilton It was great to get another one-two finish for the team in Austria and I'm so proud of all the hard work everyone is putting in to keep us at the front this season. Of course, it wasn't the result I wanted personally and it was disappointing not to be able to capitalise on my pace when it was c...[Read more...]
DANIEL RICCIARDO REFLECTS ON THE AUSTRIAN GRAND PRIX
DANIEL RICCIARDO REFLECTS ON THE AUSTRIAN GRAND PRIX SPIELBERG, Styria, Austria – After the high of a debut victory in Canada, Daniel Ricciardo landed with a bump at the Red Bull Ring, starting fifth and finishing eighth. He spoke to us afterwards. Q1: Daniel, not quite the same experience as Montreal… Ricciardo: Not quite! But that's racing: You have highs and lows. I've enjoyed the last fortnight having been on top of the pile, but nothing lasts forever. We expected to be quicker here this weekend and were optimistic about be...[Read more...]
TOUGH DAY ON TRACK, BUT RED BULL HOST FAN-TASTIC EVENT
TOUGH DAY ON TRACK, BUT RED BULL HOST FAN-TASTIC EVENT SPIELBERG, Styria, Austria – Infiniti Red Bull Racing endured a tough first home race at Austria's Red Bull Ring as Sebastian Vettel was forced to retire from the race after 34 laps, while Daniel Ricciardo salvaged some pride by racing to eighth place at the Spielberg circuit to claim four points. Sebastian's race went wrong almost from the start. After holding his starting 12th place on lap one, he suddenly slowed at the start of the second tour and reported a sudden loss of power. He...[Read more...]
2001 German Grand Prix: Ralf Carries the Flag
 All throughout the 2001 season, Ralf Schumacher, and the Williams-BMW team, had managed to put up a fight. They weren't the best team in the paddock, but the potential was there every now and again for something great. At the Hockenheimring in late July, Ralf would have the opportunity to not merely carry the Williams flag. He would have the opportunity to be the toast of all Germany. Ralf Schumacher had come into the 2001 season having never won a grand prix before in his life. However, by t...[Read more...]
2001 Canadian Grand Prix: No Brotherly Love Here
 Though highly regarded from the moment he set his sights on a career in motor racing, Ralf Schumacher would face the unfortunate case of constantly being compared to his older brother Michael. The moment he arrived in Formula One, however, everyone in and around the series looked forward to that day when both brothers would be on equal footing and the two could really battle it out for top honors. Everyone looked and waited for that perfect battlefield. And, in 2001, on a small island in the St....[Read more...]
1999: European Grand Prix: Ralf Deflated but Buoyant
 Not often is an individual held in higher esteem for coming up short. But, in a sport where there are many things that can override a fantastic result, Ralf Schumacher would pull up lame, and yet, would come away a sheer winner. Ralf Schumacher's stock had been on the rise even before he reached Formula One. Being in the same family of a World Champion automatically raises the stock of an individual. However, being the brother of a two-time World Champion has everyone hedging their bets even ...[Read more...]
1999 French Grand Prix: Frentzen and Jordan Keep Their Heads to Win
 The 1999 French Grand Prix would seemingly be a race in which every driver and spectator would have liked to miss. However, had that been the case, Formula One would have lost one of its most memorable races and Heinz-Harald Frentzen would have missed out on his second career victory. The French Grand Prix was just the seventh round of the World Championship in 1999. However, already by that point in time the season had become a rather processional affair. Eddie Irvine had demonstrated he was...[Read more...]
1997 San Marino Grand Prix: Frentzen Follows Through
 Except during that dark weekend at Imola in 1994, Williams had been on a roll at the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari. However, with a little more than half a race still to run in 1997, the team would be looking to its newest member to keep the streak alive. Heinz-Harald Frentzen wasn't just some fresh face in the Williams-Renault lineup for 1997. He was so highly-touted and thought of by Frank Williams and other team managers the German would come to the Grove-based team having taken over the ...[Read more...]
2014 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX: STAT CENTER
2014 CANADIAN GRAND PRIX: STAT CENTER MONTREAL – The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a beast of a racing circuit. Essentially a series of fast straights linked by chicanes and a hairpin, the parkland course demands just enough downforce for braking stability and little more. There's a 50 percent chance of the safety car coming out and red flags not unknown. The weather always plays a part – regardless of whether it comes in the flavor of torrential rain or extreme temperatures capable of melting tarmac and destroying tires. It's...[Read more...]

Patrick Head: A Founder of a Revolution
Patrick Head: A Founder of a Revolution At the end of the 2011 season Patrick Head decided it was time to put a halt to his career in Formula One. After more than 30 years with the Williams team, Head had not only managed to make the organization one of the few privateer outfits to ever flourish in Formula One, he had also helped to start a revolution as well. Perhaps the most sophisticated car ever to race in Formula One arrived on the scene in 1993 and was a direct descendant of another revolutionary design. The car was the FW15...[Read more...]

SUCCESSIVE PODIUM FINISHES FOR DANIEL; VETTEL CRUELLY DENIED A GOOD RESULT
SUCCESSIVE PODIUM FINISHES FOR DANIEL; VETTEL CRUELLY DENIED A GOOD RESULT MONACO – Daniel Ricciardo recorded his second successive podium finish with a third place in Monaco, while Sebastian Vettel was cruelly denied a good result following a power unit problem that caused him to retire his RB10 in the early stages of the grand prix.

A tense battle saw the Australian c...[Read more...]
ALLISON: 'TWO TRACKS FOR DEVELOPMENT'
ALLISON: 'TWO TRACKS FOR DEVELOPMENT' Maranello, May 26 - The Scuderia Ferrari is back home from the Monaco Grand Prix with the belief that he could achieve more in terms of the result. Kimi has become the protagonist of a great performance and only bad luck has deprived him of a well deserved podium, while Fernando took home more valuable points, which prevent the Red Bull to take off in the championship. Back to Maranello, the engineers are back to work on the development along two distinct tracks, with the dual aim of b...[Read more...]
DE LA ROSA: 'MONACO IS THE HARDEST CIRCUIT'
DE LA ROSA: 'MONACO IS THE HARDEST CIRCUIT' 'In my opinion, the two hardest circuits on the calendar are Monaco and Singapore,' reckons Scuderia Ferrari test driver Pedro de la Rosa, talking to Ferrari.com, when Monaco is mentioned. There is no room for error, you must always be on the limit and brush all the walls and barriers without ever losing concentration. For these reasons, all the drivers treat the race with admiration and respect, because here, probably more than at any other track, the driver's contribution is vital. The mechani...[Read more...]
