Keeping up with SpeedRead

As I meantioned a few weeks ago, maintaining the blog was starting to consume too much time. I still love Formula 1, however, and have spent some time exploring ways to keep in the game.

I have decided to continue my focus on Twitter, drawing attention to interesting stories and expert writing. Each day, the best of what I'm following is compiled into a daily newspaper, bringing all the best stories into one place.

Additionally, I will keep the blog site, occasionally voicing my opinion on the news of the day. I will also keep the parts of the blog that can be updated automatically, allowing me to maintain a high level of information for a minimal effort.

I hope you will follow along.

Here are three ways to keep up:


Best,


Chris

SpeedRead on hiatus

Due to personal reasons, I am taking a break from this blog. At this point, I am unsure what the future holds for it, but it has been a fun few years, and hopefully, we will have the opportunity to converse again soon. Until then, enjoy what remains of this amazing 2011 F1 season. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D.

Race prep: Belgium (cont.)

"Well, last year is a little bit of a form card. Obviously, the regulations have changed a lot since then, so let's see how that goes. Clearly, McLaren and Ferrari aren't hanging round as well. Qualifying has tightened up a lot in the last few events and so have the races, as we saw. Silverstone would have been a track where you would think we could have been a bit more competitive or more dominant compared to the high standards we have set around some particular venues around the world and this one you might pick as well. So, find out Sunday night."

Race prep: Belgium

"After a month out of the cockpit, I think every driver on the grid is really looking forward to racing on a track like Spa-Francorchamps, which is easily one of the greatest circuits in the world. Spa’s always been one of my favourite tracks - it’s a place where you really feel on the limit, and that’s pretty awesome in a Formula One car. I’m already looking forward to my first flying lap on Friday morning. Corners like Eau Rouge, Pouhon and Blanchimont are fantastic, just because they’re so fast - Pouhon, in particular, is incredible, because you’re really at the limit of the grip level, and you’re gently playing with the throttle and trying not to scrub off too much speed with the steering. Getting it right is an amazing feeling."

- Lewis Hamilton

Race prep: Hungary


"Hungary will be my 100th Grand Prix which seems crazy when my father completed 114 races over his whole career. It's a nice number but statistics aren't that important to me. I'm looking forward to the weekend in Budapest as I like the Hungaroring very much, and I'm hoping for a better time than in 2010 when unfortunately I didn't finish the race."

Race prep: Germany


"The lesson to draw from all this experience is never to make predictions when you come to the Nurburgring. The current circuit may be less epic than the original 14-mile layout, and certainly a lot safer, but it can still bite you. And the weather can turn in a matter of moments - you can have all the seasons in one afternoon ... Another thing you can be sure of is that there will be a fantastic atmosphere. The local fans know how to party and they always enjoy themselves, whatever the weather!"


- Lewis Hamilton

The quotable F1: Mark Webber



"...it (the blown diffuser row) is not new for our team. Adjustable front ride height controllers, front wings, whatever. Every year we have a new thing to talk about. This last few weeks it has been about this. Let's hope everyone can find a common ground. It is incredibly boring also for the fans. I think they cannot understand 0.1 per cent of what's going on. Even for us it is sometimes difficult, so let's get on with the racing. Keep the rules as simple as possible from the start of the year maybe and go from there."

Race prep: Canada


"My favourite thing about Canada is the laid-back attitude of the fans, which makes the atmosphere very good. The track has traditionally thrown up very interesting races due to the street circuit layout and because the low downforce configuration that we race in provides some good overtaking. It’s always nice to get the feeling that there’s a GP in town even when we’re away from the track and that’s certainly the case in Montreal."


- Mark Webber

WMSC decisions: The good, the bad, and the ugly

The good

The United States Grand Prix is back. The FIA revealed its 2012 schedule (a 21-race monstrosity that is sure not to sit well with the teams), including the return of the USGP in Austin. While the FIA continues to prove it has no concept of world climates (June in Texas is a hot. blazing nightmare), what a joy to know the circus will once again be coming to the States June 17, one week after Canada as part of a swing through North America.

The bad

The FIA approved its new engine rules, but left the door open to postponing the introduction of the rules should the "main stakeholders" vote to do so. I, for one, don't fear a move to screaming 1.6 litre turbos, but considering the amount of noise the teams and Bernie are making, it's a safe bet introduction of these power units will not be happening anytime soon.

The ugly



"After considering all the factors and taking into consideration all stakeholders’ concerns, the WMSC unanimously agreed to reinstate the Bahrain Grand Prix in the 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship.

This decision reflects the spirit of reconciliation in Bahrain, which is evident from the strong support the race receives from the Government and all major parties in Bahrain, including the largest opposition group, all of whom endorse the Formula One Grand Prix and motor sport in the country. The WMSC feels that reinstating the Grand Prix is a means of helping to unite people as the country looks to move forward, and also recognises the commitment made by the Formula One teams, their employees and families, and personnel associated with the Championship including the local team of volunteers who are so vital to the event."

Race prep: Spain

"The Spanish Grand Prix is traditionally where it really feels like the European season gets underway and holds a lot of good memories for me. Of course, we know the Circuit de Catalunya very well from testing, but it will be interesting to see the effect of KERS, the DRS and the Pirelli tyres on a track where overtaking is always difficult. While I was not happy with my weekend in Turkey, there have been clear signs of improvements for us as a team, which obviously push and re-boost my motivation even more. It's more than encouraging to see that the hard work of the team is starting to pay off. We are all determined to make progress."

Hamilton breaks through for victory in China

Lewis Hamilton broke Sebastian Vettel's string of victories, reeling the Red Bull in on the 52nd lap to take McLaren's first win of the season Sunday in Shanghai.

Red Bull's gamble on a two-stop strategy proved to be its undoing as Vettel's fading rubber made it impossible to hold Hamilton off.

Mark Webber drove a stunning race from 18th on the grid to finish third.

Jenson Button and Hamilton took Vettel at the start, but an odd mistake from Button in the first round of pit stops, when he pulled into the Red Bull pit box, proved costly and allowed Vettel to get out ahead.

Button would finish fourth.

Pirelli made the race interesting, and it was clearly going to come down to tire strategy. Tire degradation was what was asked for this year by the supplier, and it delivered some exciting racing.

For a while it looked as if Nico Rosberg was going to be able to pull out a Shanghai surprise for Mercedes, but fuel concerns forced him to dial it back. He finished fifth ahead of the two-stopping Massa and Alonso, sixth and seventh respectively, cementing three stops was the way to go in this contest.

Of note further back,
Heikki Kovalainen finished 16th in the Lotus in what he hailed as the team's “best ever performance,” as the squad was able to stay in touch with the rest of the field.

The lone retirement was STR's Jaime Alguersuari, who lost a wheel shortly after pitting. Toro Rosso were fined 10,000 euros for the mistake.

Vettel and Red Bull still lead the standings, but McLaren should make it a contest. What a difference from the end of winter testing, when McLaren was really on its back foot. It should be interesting to see what new bits become available as the circus moves to Europe in three week's time.

Result

  1. Lewis Hamilton (Britain) McLaren 1h 36m 58.226s

We know that our fans in China are very enthusiastic and really get behind us, so we will definitely try to put on a good show for them."

Two for two for Seb

Sebastian Vettel held off Jenson Button to take his second victory of the season in Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.

Tires play a deciding role as Button was able to challenge by 19 laps on the primes while his teammate, Lewis Hamilton, was forced to take a fourth stop.

Nick Heidfeld came in third, proving Renault's speed in Melbourne was no fluke.

KERS-less Mark Webber was fourth and Felipe Massa was the best of the Ferraris in fifth.

A spirited battle between Hamilton and Fernando Alonso resulted in both drivers having 20 seconds added to their race times by the stewards: Hamilton for blocking and Alonso for causing a collision.

Alonso remains in sixth but Hamilton's penalty drops him to eighth behind Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi, who once again was one of the most exciting drivers on the circuit. Mixing it up with the likes of Webber and Schumacher, Kobayashi delivered Sauber's first points of the season following its Australia disqualification.

Vettel and Red Bull are solidly in control of both championships as the series now moves on to China.

Race prep: Malaysia (cont.)


"I always enjoy coming here. This is one of those circuits that really makes me smile when I land into Malaysia, as it is a very flowing circuit. I have had some pretty good races here in the past, not just the one that I won but also other races where I haven’t been on the podium but have had great races with people around here. It is one of those circuits where you can really have a good tussle as corners flow into each other."


- Jenson Button

Race prep: Malaysia


“Malaysia is the first real track we go to, as Australia is a semi-street circuit. It’s hot and rains every day, but the question is when and how much? It will be a tricky one... Generally the overseas races are special, as you go there a few days earlier than usual, so you get to see different things. I enjoy that and am looking forward to it.”


-Sebastian Vettel

A walk in the park for Seb

Sebastian Vettel led from the start and eased to victory in Sunday's season-opening Australian Grand Prix, while Lewis Hamilton proved McLaren had indeed found something to come in second and Renault's Vitaly Petrov turned in a strong drive for third.

Fernando Alonso finished fourth, but Ferrari was not much of a factor. Vettel's Red Bull teammate Mark Webber was not able to slot into second at the start, finishing fifth in his home race, and Jenson Button had one to forget. Unable to get by Felipe Massa in the early stages of the race, a particularly spirited effort found him on the run off road and on the receiving end of a drive through penalty.

Perhaps the story of the day would have been Sauber, originally classified seventh and eighth with Sergio Perez leading the way. Unfortunately, both cars were later disqualified. According to AUTOSPORT: The rear wings did not comply with Articles 3.10.1 and 3.10.2 of the F1 Technical Regulations that demands wing parts do not have 'a local concave radius of curvature smaller than 100mm.' The team has appealed and is investigating.

The change in the results moves Sebastien Buemi up to eight and sees both Force Indias rounding out the top ten.

It was a bad day for Mercedes and Williams, both suffering double retirements. Among last year's new teams, Lotus still hasn't found that midfield pace, Jarno Trulli finishing 13th, two laps down, and Timo Glock, Virgin's highest runner, was not classified.

But the big story was Vettel, who blazed out ahead of the field and was never under threat. Given the debate over the team's decision not to use KERS this weekend, the German's challengers have their work cut out for them. It all continues in Malaysia in two week's time.

Australia: Qualifying

Sebastian Vettel picked up where he left off, taking pole by a wide margin over Lewis Hamilton, while Hamilton proved McLaren had found speed in the car by edging Vettel's Red Bull teammate for second on the grid.

Mark Webber stars third.

Jenson Button beat out Fernando Alonso for fourth, while Vitaly Petrov starts a surprising sixth in the Renault.

Other notables included Nico Rosberg once again outqualifying Michael Schumacher; Sergio Perez, Paul di Resta and Pastor Maldonado looking solid in their debut efforts; and Lotus, Virgin and HRT in their usual places. But there is a new twist to that last one: both HRTs fell outside the 107 percent rule, and will not race Sunday.

The quotable F1: Bernie Ecclestone

"I meet people worldwide in all different walks of life - sponsors, promoters and journalists and I think there are two things that are really important for F1; one is Ferrari and second is the noise. I brought some Russian gentlemen to Singapore and met them afterwards in Russia - it was the first race they'd ever been to and I said what was it that impressed you. I didn't even think about the noise but they said the most important thing was the noise - it's incredible, it really gets to you. Even more so the women - the ladies love the noise."

- Bernie Ecclestone to the Australian Associated Press

McLaren Formula One driver Jenson Button of Britain takes the chequered flag to win the Australian F1 Grand Prix in Melbourne in this March 28, 2010 file photo. The 2010 Australian Grand Prix posted a A$49.2 million ($46 million) loss, local media reported on Thursday, placing further pressure on the state government to justify the burden on taxpayers. The Australian Grand Prix Corporation (AGRC) said the global financial crisis had continued to have a "significant impact" on the loss-making race, local media quoted the organisers' annual report, which was tabled in Victoria state's parliament.
