raikkonen’s new lease of life at alfa romeo

What can Kimi Raikkonen achieve with Alfa Romeo, the team he began his Formula 1 career with as Sauber?The combination is unlikely to challenge Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull (probably in that order, at least for now) this season. But the C38 showed promise in testing and, as Raikkonen tells Edd Straw in our cover piece on page 16, the 39-year old feels he can make a valuable contribution. The Finn certainly seems happier than he appeared for much of his time at Ferrari.It’s not particularly bold to point out that Raikkonen did not make the most of his second stint in red. There were too many errors in qualifying and he struggled to match both Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel. But, as the 2018 United States GP proved, he…

is williams going from lowe to lower?

FORMULA 1Two years ago, Paddy Lowe was the messiah for Williams. The return to a team where he had once played a key role in the successful active-ride programme of the early 1990s was supposed to set Williams back on the path to the good times. But last week he stepped away from the team for “personal reasons”, widely expected to become an official parting of the ways in the near future.A car that was late for pre-season testing could be tolerated. One that was slow could not be, especially once it became clear last week that Williams has had to make changes to part of the front-suspension design (an illegal seventh member when the rules permit only six) and the wing mirrors to avoid the parts being deemed illegal…

f1 awards fastest lap point for first time in 60 years

FORMULA 1Formula 1 will award a point for fastest lap in races this season – for the first time since 1959. The plan was approved at last week’s FIA World Motor Sport Council, and then passed via an e-vote by the Strategy Group and F1 Commission on Monday of this week.It will be awarded only if the driver who sets fastest lap finishes in the top 10. If that is not the case, the point will not be attributed.F1 sporting boss Ross Brawn said: “We have been considering this solution for a number of months.“How many times have we heard the drivers on the radio ask the team about who holds the fastest lap? Now it will no longer be only a matter of prestige, but there will be a…

ducati qatar gp win in question

MOTOGPDucati rider Andrea Dovizioso’s victory in the MotoGP season-opening Qatar Grand Prix remains provisional pending the result of an appeal against a ruling that dismissed a protest made by four rival manufacturers.Honda, Suzuki, Aprilia and KTM all filed a protest following last Sunday’s race against a new rear winglet being used by the Ducati bikes of Dovizioso, Danilo Petrucci and Jack Miller. This was rejected by race stewards, but has now been referred to the FIM Court of Appeals for further consideration, with a verdict expected imminently.Ducati insisted that the part in question was designed merely to cool the rear tyre, but the Bologna-based squad’s rivals are convinced that it must have had an aerodynamic benefit for it to have been used in an event where track temperatures did not…
