from one classic formula 1 contest to another?

A three-way title fight going all the way down to the wire, with the advantage swinging back and forth between very different protagonists as the end of one period of domination nears its end. That’s both the story of the first Formula 1 world championship, explored by Paul Fearnley in our 70th anniversary piece on page 32, and the hope we all have for the storyline of 2020. As Alex Kalinauckas outlines on p18, there have probably not been more reasons to expect a challenge to Mercedes since the start of the current turbo-hybrid-engine era in 2014. Ferrari and Red Bull have both been candid about their failings, and the rules stability should allow them to address those without other distractions – at least until work on the long-awaited 2021 cars really…

fia says ‘no single cause’ for hubert death

FORMULA 2 The FIA has released a summary of its findings into Anthoine Hubert’s fatal accident during the Formula 2 round at Spa last August, but it has faced criticism from Juan Manuel Correa – who sustained serious injuries in the same incident – for raising “more questions than it provides answers”. Renault Formula 1 junior Hubert died at the age of 22 as a result of injuries sustained in the accident on the second lap of the Belgian Grand Prix-supporting F2 feature race, which also involved Correa, Giuliano Alesi and Ralph Boschung. Correa was left with life-threatening injuries and placed in an induced coma for more than two weeks after suffering from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. He later underwent a 17-hour surgery in October to address injuries on his right leg…

toyota’s special gr yaris begins testing in snow

WRC The GR Yaris that Toyota will use in the 2021 World Rally Championship has begun testing, with long-term development driver Juho Hanninen at the wheel. A video released by the Toyota Gazoo Racing World Rally Team on Friday reveals the hotly anticipated hot hatch being tested on heavy snow. The GR Yaris road car – which the WRC challenger will be based on – came as something of a surprise to the car industry when it was revealed in January at the Tokyo Auto Salon (above), with a 257bhp three-cylinder engine and four-wheel drive. Most road-going hot hatches are front-wheel drive. The road car has been developed alongside the TGR rally squad, giving the team the chance to create a solid base car for what becomes its 2021 challenger. The car has exaggerated…

leclerc kicks off 2020 tests on new-size tyres

FORMULA 1 Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc kicked off Formula 1’s 2020 track action by conducting an 18-inch-wheel Pirelli tyre test at Jerez last Saturday. It was the first of 25 days of dedicated running for next year’s tyres, the testing of which will be shared across all 10 teams. After fog delayed the start to the day in Spain, two-time grand prix winner Leclerc completed 130 laps at the wheel of a modified SF90 mule car. Ferrari declined to allow the tyre company to release any pictures of the car in action. All teams have committed to building mule cars for the testing of the tyres. These will also be used during the post-season test in Abu Dhabi. Teams will complete two days of dry running apiece, while F1’s ‘big three’ – Mercedes, Ferrari and…

nasr and sette camara to share carlin indycar ride

INDYCAR SERIES Ex-Sauber Formula 1 racer Felipe Nasr and McLaren test-and-development driver Sergio Sette Camara will share a Carlin car in this year’s IndyCar Series. Following two years with Sauber in 2015-16, Nasr headed to the IMSA SportsCar Championship in North America, winning the 2018 title. He tested an Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports IndyCar at Mid-Ohio last July. Nasr has a great history with Carlin, winning the 2011 British Formula 3 Championship and claiming third in the 2014 GP2 Series with the team. Formula 2 ace Sette Camara (above), 21, was on Dale Coyne Racing’s shortlist of potential replacements for Sebastien Bourdais for 2020, a ride that eventually went to Alex Palou. He visited a number of IndyCar factories at the same time as he was linked to a Hitech Grand Prix F2 seat,…

ferrari eyeing new prototype

LE MANS 24 HOURS/WEC/IMSA Ferrari is eyeing a return to the prototype ranks in the new LMDh category announced last month for the first time since the 333SP of the 1990s. But it has stated that it will only consider a programme if it can build its own chassis. That puts it add odds with one of the key principles of LMDh, which will allow manufacturers to race the same car across the IMSA SportsCar Championship and the World Endurance Championship. The rules that come into force for the WEC in 2021-22 and IMSA in 2022 follow on from the current Daytona Prototype international regulations in North America by demanding that the cars are developed out of an LMP2 chassis. Ferrari GT racing boss Antonello Coletta described the announcement of a common platform…
