Poredak tablica:




Posle 10 godina absencije vraća se VN Francuske u Formulu 1 i to na stazi Le Kastelet. Po konfiguraciji deluje da više voli jače PJ ali isto tako ceni bolide sa dobrom aerodinamikom. Pireli na ovu stazu donosi gume s manjom gaznom površinom (ista ona kao u Španiji) i svi znamo kako je to završilo. Fetela i Hamiltona deli jedan poen a Botas i Rikjardo nisu tako daleko. Svašta očekujem od Le Kasteleta.

Ne svidja mi se staza. Nadam se da gresim, al mi deluje kao neki modifikovani Sochi.


P.S. Ovaj izlazak iz boksa je skroz nesrecno odradjen. Potencijalno mesto za veliki haos. Bukvalno se ukljucuju u putanju vozila, u punoj brzini, na startno-ciljnom pravcu.

The French GP of 2018...and 1914
Joe Saward

It’s a strange hour of the night and I seem to have car-lag, as I’ve not been on a plane since coming home from Canada. That feels like weeks ago but in truth it was eight days ago. Arriving at Paul Ricard yesterday in the early afternoon, I spent a couple of hours in a cluster-f**k of traffic, in part because somehow we were not given our parking passes a race in advance as usually happens.

I was luckier than some who had to drive to the circuit in a traffic jam and then go past it to get to the Media Accreditation and then back to the circuit in another jam. This was caused by a number of things, but was primarily because Paul Ricard is a daft place to have a Grand Prix, having insufficient local infrastructure to cope with the numbers of people involved. There were lots of camper vans driven by people not knowing where to go, there were coach drivers ferrying school children around, police vehicles forcing their way through the jams bringing important people (such as electricians) to the track. Everyone got in everyone else’s way. Strangely, when I got to the pivotal roundabout, I found that I had an easy run past traffic coming from the other direction, down to the entrance for participants. I arrived two minutes before an interview slot with Pierre Gasly, which was cutting it fine... Still, Pierre is a funny guy and had some good stories to tell, but you have to subscribe to GrandPrix+ if you want to read them.

We’re now getting into the Silly Season and with the engine situation now sorted, with Red Bull confirming its Honda deal, it is time to consider the drivers and the key to the market seems to be Daniel Ricciardo, who is still being talked about in relation to Mercedes and Ferrari. He’s said to not be overly keen on going with Honda, but needs an alternative. He’s a pretty attractive package but it depends if Mercedes or Ferrari want to get into disruption, to keep their stars on their toes, or are happy with the status quo. One can read the situation both ways, with both teams. If neither happens I don’t see Daniel moving, but with three of the top four seats up for grabs (in theory), the possibility exists and so someone will write a story about it.

There are some interesting rumours about Fernando Alonso too, with a McLaren IndyCar being the rumoured likely destination for “The Plucky Spaniard” (one of our nicknames for him). Over in the US, they say that Michael Andretti (who would oversee the team for McLaren) is keen to sign him, but Honda is not, given he has been less that helpful to them in his F1 utterances and the fact that he is a factory Toyota driver (not a minor point). This seems to have led to an approach from McLaren to Scott Dixon for the McLaren IndyCar seat. Honda will certainly need some schmoozing to fall into bed with McLaren on the other side of The Pond, but then Zak Brown is a international level schmoozer, so let’s see how that all develops.

It does all mean that if Alonso goes, McLaren will be short of a lead driver, but one can expect Lando Norris to slot in there. He needs time to develop, but then so too does the team...

If Danny Ric leaves Red Bull one would imagine the aforementioned P Gasly leaping in to replace him, which would open the way for someone at Toro Rosso. The Japanese would love one of their own in a car (an old and, frankly, daft tradition) but none of its youngsters and licensed-up. Added to this Red Bull has scythed through its young drivers to such an extent that there is no-one left at the moment, although there are a series of Red Bull rejects in Formula 2 at the moment. Given that the Austrian fizzy pop firm had to go to WEC to find Brendon Hartley, one can imagine a similar thing again, with the obvious choice being soon-to-be Formula E champion “Generic” Vergne (although I always want to call him Jules). Whether the swarthy Frenchman wants to return to the fold is another matter, as his earning potential in electric land is currently fully-charged.

There are discussions too about both of the other French drivers: Esteban Ocon and Romain Grosjean. Ocon is rumoured to be a possible Renault driver next year, if Mercedes doesn’t have room for him (for the time being), while some think Haas may want to replace Romain, as he has not been having a good year.

As I drove down to Ricard (a pleasant enough 500 miler), down from Paris through the Morvan region (a hidden gem), Burgundy and the Rhône Valley, my mind was on other French drivers. My slightly deranged colleague Will Buxton was whizzing around in a McLaren road car visiting French GP tracks (from the World Championship era) but he drove past a couple of others without realising, not least the celebrated Circuit de Lyons, home of the GP in 1914 and later after World War I.

This took various forms but the original was 20-odd miles long and included a famous hairpin at Sept-Chemins, a tricky right-handed going into the town of Givors and a stunning section of road along the Gier valley, with cliffs on one side and a drop to the river on the other - for about eight miles! It was on this great track that Georges Boillot fought a famous battle with the Mercedes factory team in the summer of 1914, the last Grand Prix before the war. Boillot, the French national hero, and winner of the Grands Prix in 1912 and 1913, drove his Peugeot with stunning ability and led before his frequent tyre stops dropped him behind Mercedes team leader Christian Lautenschlager. Boillot charged back, cheered on by 300,000 spectators until finally his car fell apart on the last lap, leaving Mercedes to finish 1-2-3. Plus ça change... like the traffic at Paul Ricard.

The Sept Chemin hairpin today

What’s run-off?

Pol Rikar je (bio) Bernijeva staza i odslikava njegovu viziju kako F1 treba da izgleda. Originalno je demontirao sve tribine (sad su vecim delom vracene) i zadrzao samo ~700 luksuznih loza za ultrabogate bez sanse za sirotinju da pridje stazi. Oko staze sve izbetonirano i ofarbano u drecave boje, izolovano i ususkano da bogatuni tu mogu da rade svoje biznis dilove a to sto se usput vozaju u krug i neki ludaci je ustvari sasvim slucajno i nebitno.


Jos samo kad bi sve to bilo u nekoj diktatorskoj pripizdini na kraj sveta pa da padne i neka kinta, da vi's lepote...

F1 - Hamilton quickest in France as Ericsson’s session ends with fiery crash
4 minutes

Lewis Hamilton topped the opening practice timesheet as France returned to the Formula 1 calendar following an absence of a decade, the defending world champion edging Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas by a tenth of a second at the Circuit Paul Ricard. The session ended in spectacular fashion, with Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson crashing out and his car catching fire.

The Swedish driver lost control of his Sauber C37 midway through Turn 11 and slid sideways across the run-off area into the barriers. As the car came to rest the rear end burst into flames. As marshals race to extinguish the fire, Ericsson quickly exited the car, just before the session ended.

There were a number of similar offs during the session as teams experimented with set-up options, with Toro Rosso’s Brendon Hartley, Ferrari’s Kimi Räikkönen, and McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne all had off-track excursions early in the session at Turn 6, while Sauber’s Charles Leclerc had a moment at Turn 11.

Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo led the way after 20 minutes with a time of 1:34.956. He then improved to a time of 1:33.691 using soft tyres. Räikkönen took over at the top as the session reached the half-hour mark before the Australian put in a series of quick laps to set a time of 1:32.576 that put him more than half a second ahead of Bottas.

The Finn bolted on a set of ultrasoft tyres just ahead of the final half hour of the session and that allowed him to get past Ricciardo with a time of 1:32.566.

Bottas was outpaced by team-mate Hamilton, however, with the Briton setting a time of 132.231 to take top spot.

The dropped Ricciardo to third place, with the Australian finishing just under three tenths of a second behind Hamilton. There was then an almost four tenths of a second gap to Räikkönen, with Sebastian Vettel in fifth place, a further 0.169s behind his team-mate.

Romain Grosjean took best of the rest status for Haas with sixth place, a second behind Hamilton. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen had a less successful session than his team-mate, with the Dutchman spending much of the session in the garage. He took to the track for the last half hour of running and rose to P7 ahead of Toro Rosso’s French driver Pierre Gasly.

Force India’s Sergio Perez took ninth place with a time of 1:33.719, almost 1.5s behind Hamilton, with the second Haas of Kevin Magnussen rounding out the top 10.

F1 - Lewis Hamilton sets blistering pace in second practice at Paul Ricard
3-4 minutes

Lewis Hamilton used an upgraded Mercedes power unit to power away from his rivals in second practice for the French Grand Prix, topping the timesheet, seventh tenths of a second clear of nearest rival Daniel Ricciardo of Red Bull Racing.

Mercedes had been set to introduce an upgrade in Canada but held back the power unit for further tests, but today the Constructors’ champions confirmed that all six Mercedes’ powered cars will run this weekend with the new unit.

When the session’s qualifying simulations got into gear midway through the session, Ricciardo led the way on ultrasoft tyres. Hamilton, one of the last to bolt on the purple-banded Pirelli tyres, was about to attack that time when his out lap was interrupted by red flags.

The stoppage was caused by Sergio Perez whose Force India had shed its rear left wheel at Turn 7. The Mexican driver’s car was recovered and he later rejoined the action.

When the red flag period ended Hamilton went out again on ultrasofts and posted a lap of 1:32.539. That put him firmly ahead of Ricciardo, who held on to second place in the session.

That might not have been the case had Valtteri Bottas been able to fully exploit the ultrasofts. The Finn did run on the softest compound on offer this weekend prior to the red flag but after the stoppage he was unable to return to the track as Mercedes discovered a water leak on his car. He ended the session in P7.

Behind Ricciardo, Max Verstappen recovered from a long spell in the garage in the opening session to post the afternoon’s third quickest lap. The Dutchman recorded a lap of 1:33.271  to end the session just under three hundredths of a second behind his team-mate.

Ferrari’s Kimi Räikkönen was fourth quickest, setting a time of 1:33.426. He was the last man within a second of Hamilton’s benchmark, with the Finn’s team-mate Sebastian Vettel taking fifth 1.150s off the pace, though the German only did a single lap on ultrasofts before the red flag.

As with the morning session, outlier excepted, Haas’ Romain Grosjean was the best of the rest beyond the top three teams. The Frenchman finished just 0.010s behind Vettel as he enjoyed a good start to his home grand prix.

Fernando Alonso was eighth for McLaren 1.8s behind Hamilton, with Kevin Magnussen ninth ahead of home hope Pierre Gasly of Toro Rosso.

Elsewhere, Sauber’s Marcus Ericsson did not take part in the session due to damage to his car sustained in a heavy crash in the morning session.
