    McLaren confirms Canadian businessman Michael Latifi as its new shareholder - father of Force India's reserve Nicholas Latifi - following the departure of Ron Dennis. I see a big "sausage" fest between Lawrence and Michael as in who's the better driver??? the Stroller or Latifi. My bets on Latifi.

    Latifi does not have a superlicence to race in F1. There are also rumours that Hartley's STR seat is under threat and Monaco could be his last race. With Wehrlein contracted with Mercedes, there are speculations who will replace him - Kubica is mentioned from time to time and Rosenqvist has also came up. Robert was a bit of a Monaco specialist, drove flawless race in 2008 and only SC helped Lewis get back to the race. His 2010 lap in a Renault is considered as all-time great as well.

    There are also reports tyres will named as hard (red), medium (yellow) and soft (white) for each race next year regardless of what compound they would bring. Finally some common sense prevailed.

    Also Honda favourite son Marc Marquez (MotoGP rider) is going to test Red Bull at Spielberg in the summer, along with his motorcycle team-mate Dani Pedrosa.

    Bernie, dont buy it yet, just wait till the value drops a bit, then buy it and then double it!
    WOW. how stupid is that guy, to buy a F1 sanctioned series, race car series, with a long heritage, and make it only about glamour? I mean, guess he missed the bits, the red, silver, orange, pink, red/white, yellow/black bits that goes around the tracks! All this technology, he think technology is magic? That all these teams just one day, went to a party and they had an all out orgy and just got all these plans, details and knowledge and all other details, out of the blue?
    How stupid can they get.

    As much as people criticize Bernie, at the least he was about making the sport appealing to auto racing fans. His idea may be insane, but his intentions were at the right place.

    Hollywood companies are different, they have different priorities and means of achieving it. Just look at all the reality TV shows from Hollywood, this won't end well for F1.

    No matter who is in charge, if there's more races, that's less winter break time! Bernie was famous for getting countries to hold F1 races where the general population had to ask; Formula who ?

    Clarity in the oil consumption dispute

    Nobody tricks with the oil

    Finally, there is clarity in the dispute over oil consumption. At the request of Mercedes, the FIA ​​has specified what they mean by the limited to 0.6 liters per 100 kilometers of oil consumption. This includes all the oil, including the one used in the turbocharger.


    It was just a suspicion. The smoking Ferrari engines made the competition suspicious. Was everything right there, or did Ferrari find a way around the oil consumption limit of 0.6 liters per 100 kilometers? And if so, how? The engine engineers racked their brains on how to outsmart Article 20 of the Technical Regulations. Until one had the idea, one could press the oil into the combustion chambers via a "leaky" gasket in the turbocharger's supercharger, but not count it for consumption because the turbocharger is by definition not an engine.

    On May 14, Mercedes sent a request to the FIA. The engine engineers in Brixworth wanted to know if the oil consumed in the turbocharger counts to 0.6 liters. And if so, would the combined consumption of lubricant in the engine and turbocharger have to be counted towards consumption limits?

    The turbocharger is part of the engine

    The answer from Charlie Whiting came immediately. In a circular letter to the four engine manufacturers, the FIA ​​race director made it clear that all oils used in the drive unit fall under Article 20. From the point of view of the World Association, the turbocharger is the engine. Accordingly, the oil burned in the internal combustion engine and the turbocharger must be included in the total consumption.

    The shot of Mercedes was obviously directed against Ferrari. But he missed his goal. We hear from circles of the FIA ​​that none of the four engine manufacturers have to rebuild their oil system or the turbocharger. If someone had tricked in this area, he would have had to modify his turbocharger with immediate effect. Neither of the controls found a separate oil circuit for the turbocharger. This is the topic of the table. The battery affair, however, is still smoldering. But it should clarify the course of the weekend.

    Sooooo in short, Our car passed the oil test suspicion from Mercedes!!!!
