I was hoping for Trulli and his man bun. Weren’t the idiots on speed referring to him as “ the scrumptious one” for a while?

Why linking an article from 2007?

What are the rules on test drivers? Di Resta has been testing with Williams, right? Is that just an agreement or an actual contract? Would he need permission to drive for another team?

An official third driver is typically under contract, but I would bet they usually have an out for an offered race seat.

Anyone have experience visiting COTA for the F1 GP that could give me some tips on where to watch from? I have 3 day GA passes and this will be my first GP I attend. Thanks!

Spend the first two days witnessing many different areas of the track. You will definitely see what would work best for you. They will have all sorts of events going on. I was there in 2015 when blowoff storms from Hurricane Patricia rained for nearly 3 days straight.

I sat between turn 2 and 3. We could see action happening across the way at 12-15 too. Bring comfortable shoes, its a long way to walk around the circuit.

Thanks for the input. Can’t wait for the weekend!

I'm thinking The Porsche driver may impress. He's pretty quick.

Probably not Vettel/Hamilton good, but ya.

Yeah. The F1 cars are definitely faster this year with the tire and aero changes, but last year's cars weren't that much faster than the Porsche 919's that Hartley has been driving. I don't recall why I was comparing lap times, but I did a few months ago. At Spa, Silverstone, COTA, etc. the 919's wouldn't have finished last in the F1 field. If he can come to terms with the grip and speed increase in this year's cars he might do well. Of course he also has to watch out for everyone else. He may very well get caught up in Grosjean having another failure and wreck, or perhaps find himself in the middle of a Perez/Ocon bumper-car battle.

Kvyat may get axed again:

http://www.planetf1.com/news/kvyat-f...so-axe-report/

Daniil Kvyat's return to Toro Rosso could be a short-lived affair, with Brendon Hartley reportedly set to remain with the team for the rest of the 2017 season.

The Russian has missed the last two races after being dropped in favour of Pierre Gasly. But, after Carlos Sainz left for Renault and Gasly heads back to Japan to compete in the Super Formula finale, Kvyat finds himself back on the Formula 1 grid.
However, Gasly will return for next weekend's grand prix in Mexico and there is said to be no guarantee that Kvyat will keep the other Toro Rosso seat for the three remaining races after the US.

Le Mans winner Hartley has been drafted in this weekend, but could extend his stay and freeze out Kvyat once again if he impresses at the Circuit of The Americas.

Toro Rosso have also yet to decide on who will form their 2018 driver line-up, but Kvyat's outlook looks a particularly bleak one.

Man, the RBR academy went from so flush with drivers they discarded them every 2 years to pulling any RBR driver from another series in.
