  Arrivabene Vs Binotto

Only Ferrari could let this happen. I don't really know whether it is true, but it is certainly getting a hell of a lot of coverage in the Italian press (which to be honest doesn't mean it is true). How the hell, on the back of easily Ferrari's best season in a decade, could they allow the team to fall apart?

It has been clear for sometime that Arrivabene had a lot of support within the team, as he was able to hold off Marchionne trying to get shot of him at the end of 2016 and 2017. However, I thought all was well internally, Ferrari could not stand to lose Binotto, certainly not to Mercedes. They've already list Sassi, who was supposedly good friends with Binotto to Merc.

What a mess if true.

  Bottas' to get a new race engineer
Posted by: Jody Barton - 29-11-2018, 01:08 PM - Forum: Team Gossip - Replies (4)

Hearing that Tony Ross is off the Mercedes Formula E efforts, and that fits with a rumour I heard a while back that Mercedes were wanting to bring in Rob Smedly, at the time I thought it was nonsense, primarily because Tony Ross was in post and seemingly working well with Bottas, and Smedly was still at Williams. Soooo... will we see Semdly rock up to Mercedes?

  All things Alonso
Posted by: forzaferrari - 28-11-2018, 08:24 PM - Forum: Other Motorsport - Replies (1)

Fernando Alonso will return to the Daytona International Speedway in January to contest the Rolex 24 Hours with the Konica Minolta Cadillac team and Wayne Taylor Racing.
Last season he competed in the sportscar event, finishing 38th out of 50 as he raced for McLaren chief Zak Brown’s United Autosport team.
This year, he’ll be with Wayne Taylor Racing.
Alonso will drive the number ’10’ Konica Minolta Cadillac DPi-V.R alonside Kamui Kobayashi, Jordan Taylor and Renger van der Zande.
“I am very happy about joining the Konica Minolta Cadillac team and Wayne Taylor Racing to race together at the Rolex 24 At Daytona,” said Alonso.
“This is undoubtedly one of the greatest races in American and world motorsport. Returning to the United States is always special.
“The atmosphere created by the fans is unique throughout an incredible weekend. I really hope to fight for the win, as well as having fun and putting a smile on the fans’ faces.
“I made my debut last year both in endurance races and with these sportscar prototypes, as well as on this track. I was left wanting much more after a brake issue ended our hopes of stepping on the podium.
“After an intense year in which I’ve competed in both Formula One and the WEC, I’m really looking forward to 2019 and attempting to conquer one of the most important races in the world.
“I’m brimming with hunger and desire and I can’t wait for the first race of next season and going out on track to battle with my Konica Minolta Cadillac team-mates.”

Alonso’s only other confirmed project is the Indianapolis 500 as the double F1 World Champion chases motor racing’s Triple Crown.

  Super Licence Points
Posted by: Foghorn Leghorn - 20-11-2018, 11:35 PM - Forum: Technical Talk - No Replies

So, I've seen some argue these things.  And I have no knowledge, as I don't follow, junior series.  Perhaps, some of the nerds on here can answer this for me.  

I don't know how it's worked out, the best I could find, was this table, which made sense to me.  But others say, that Tictum can't be on 42, this year.

I can't find 2018, licence points

does anyone know where you can find a proper list of current drivers?  And does this seem plausible (Correct)?

Edit:  I'm assuming it excludes current F1 drivers, as Buemi, is top of the list

I dont really follow this sport but thought as it involves Jenson Button it deserves a mention... Button becomes the first rookie to win the championship since Toranosuke Takagi achieved the feat in 2005

Honda pair Jenson Button and Naoki Yamamoto secured the Super GT title in a tense Motegi finale, as ex-Formula 1 champion Button resisted a determined charge by Ryo Hirakawa in the closing stages.

So, the WDC is over and with Lewis probably doing his usual walk about trick after sealing the win and Bottas clearly mentally broken the only really important question that remains to be answered is do Mercedes have enough of an advantage over Ferrari to beat them. Still think it will take Ferrari getting two 1/2's in the remaining races and a DNF from one of the Merc's. However, it is possible.
