As a driving instructor, I don't often think about what could happen when I get in a car with a new racer. This is super sad to see.

Whatever happened it wasn't cool. He could win the championship posthumously.

Straight on in a breaking zone?

I was going to post on F1 but feels.

Lotus raises budget beyond 200 million with investment deal
Published on 16 Oct 2013 10:19

A Lotus contract with Nico Hulkenberg's name on it will be signed at Enstone "either today or tomorrow", the German newspaper Bild reports. It was said that the team was poised to sign the 26-year-old German as soon as the deal with Quantum - formerly Infinity, a group of private investors who plan to buy 35 per cent of Lotus - is done.

If not, it could have opened the door to Pastor Maldonado. Maldonado's lucrative sponsor PDVSA is locked in a contract with Williams, but O Estado de S.Paulo correspondent Livio Oricchio said the Venezuelan is desperate to move from uncompetitive Williams. But Bild reports that Lotus' Quantum deal is finally now being formalised, which should boost the team's budget beyond EUR 200 million for 2014. (GMM)

That's good news. It's not the billboard ALO/RAI teammate battle, but I'd love to see who comes out ahead in a HUL/GRO battle.

Doesn't look like it from that pic. Maybe there's a straight coming in from the right, but it certainly appears the car got turned in at least a bit before heading off track.

THE LOTUS F1 team has recorded the biggest financial loss in motorsport history, according to reports published in the UK. The Enstone-based team recorded an $88 million loss last year, bringing the team’s total debt to nearly $150 million.
how much of the sheik money will be left when Lotus will pay Kimi´s salary at the end of the year

American Alexander Rossi Will Drive In F1 Practice At US Grand Prix

The second United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas is right around the corner. And Caterham F1 will be putting American Alexander Rossi in the car for the first free practice session.

Rossi has been Caterham's test and reserve driver for two years and also drives for the team in GP2.

He previously drove during a race weekend at practice for the 2012 Spanish Grand Prix and 2013 Canadian Grand Prix. This will also mark the first appearance of an American driver in F1 during the USGP at Austin.

So make sure to go out to COTA on Friday and cheer on Alex.

Maldonado Exit opens way for Massa at Williams

Quote:
Pastor Maldonado's exit at Williams could pave the way for Felipe Massa, the Brazilian newspaper O Estado de S.Paulo is reporting.

Correspondent Livio Oricchio claims talks between Venezuelan Maldonado's management and sponsors, and bosses of the Grove based team, are taking place now.

The 28-year-old has reportedly run out of patience at Williams, despite the fact his powerful sponsors PDVSA remain under contract to the British team.

Williams admits it has a problem.

"I've never seen a racing car that reacts so little to modifications," veteran team manager Dickie Stanford told Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, referring to the FW35 that has powered Maldonado to just a single point in 2013.

One unnamed team member, however, said 2012 Spanish grand prix winner Maldonado has also been part of the problem.

"He still makes too many mistakes," the team member is quoted as saying.

"In Korea, we told him repeatedly in the last stint to take care of the right front and, if possible, stay out of the battles.

"But what did he do? Drives like a madman and ruins his tyres within three laps."

It's been 15 months since the last F1 race there and it looks that bad already?
