[url="http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/81819" target="]Team US F1 shuts down operation[/url]

Team US F1's Formula 1 hopes appeared to be over on Tuesday, with high level sources revealing to AUTOSPORT that the outfit has now effectively closed down.

Against the backdrop of weeks of uncertainty about the future of the American team, which had been struggling to get a car ready for the start of the season, sources have revealed team personnel have now been informed they are no longer required as the operation could not continue in its present guise.


Looks like Peter and Ken bit off way more than they could chew. Gotta give them props, through, as they wanted to do it from the ground up. Very disappointing.

No word on who will take the open grid spot. The FIA could open up a bidding process for it (seems a bit late in the running to do so), or they could give it to this Toyota F1 Racing, er, Stefan GP, team, a team that is backed by Bernie, which, for me, automatically detested me, so I hope the FIA would open it up for a bid, or just leave it empty.

Newcomers Campos rebranded as Hispania Racing F1 Team

The Campos Formula 1 team has been renamed Hispania Racing (HRT F1) after being taken over by Spanish financier Jose Ramon Carabante.

The new identity highlights the Spanish roots of the team, which is based in the south-eastern city of Murcia.

A formal launch of the new team will take place on Thursday, when the driver line-up for 2010 could be revealed.

India's Karun Chandhok and Bruno Senna have been widely tipped as the drivers for the team's debut F1 season.

"The new team name signifies a new birth for our Formula 1 ambitions and highlights the incredible effort that is going on behind the scenes to ensure we make a successful debut in Bahrain on 14 March," said team principal Colin Kolles.

I like the new Renault livery; reminds me of what they had years ago.

Speaking of Renault - I was shocked to hear that Petrov "borrowed" the $15 million that he paid for the ride...Are they that desperate?

While BMW Sauber-Ferrari may look strange, but it's like that for a reason, as Peter Sauber has decided to keep the "BMW Sauber" moniker for this season because of the Concorde Agreement related to the monies that they are owed when it was under BMW's management. Sauber has said that he will change the name in due time, but for now, it is still "BMW Sauber F1 Team", powered by Ferrari.

If Red Bull can sort out their realibility issues as they clearly have the fastest car the rest of the field better watch out. Had it not been for car issues Vettel would have probably won the first three races. Having said that I think it's a Alonso-Button-Vettel race to the championship.

US GP returns to Austin, TX

Formula One World Championship Limited and Formula One Administration Limited (together, the F1 Commercial Rights Holder) and Full Throttle Productions, LP, promoter of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix™, announce that a historic agreement has been reached for Austin, Texas to serve as the host city of the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix™ for years 2012 through 2021.


The location for the purpose-built circuit has already been chosen and bought. Herman Tilke will design the circuit. They have about 2 years to complete the circuit, which will be a tall order. Hopefully this isn't one of those Bernie deals where he tries to pressure another promoter into accepting his deal or purposefully set up Full Throttle Productions to fail just so that Bernie can say to everyone "See, no one is serious about F1 in the US!".

Going to be very interesting to see how this turns out. No circuit plan has been release yet, obviously, but they want the circuit to be similar to Silverstone or Spa, and the proposed site is said to be fairly hilly, so hopefully it'll work out.

I see this track/race go the way of the former USF1 team - nowhere.

I'm certain if it does go thru - I won't be in attendance (unlike the F1 races held at Indy - I was at each, and every 1); tickets will be very expensive (unlike Indy), and with Austin being 1200 miles away it's no 1 day drive like Indy was for me as well.

If we're all lucky Bernie will slip on a banana peel :rip:

What a great race today! The first half of the race I was struggling to keep up with who was where it was all so frenetic - especially with all the kids squabbling and arguing around me! Good guys won in the end though ;)
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Pretty entertaining Canadian GP. Nice to see some more on track action, thanks in part to Bridgestone bring some subpar tyres to the race (super softs and mediums were the ones brought to the race, I think I heard). They degraded enough to make the drivers work a bit, which is always good in my book (I would also like that combination on a a nice bumpy race track to really work over the driver's skills).

I was down in Ohio for the past week, missing most of the racing action around the world as we didn't have all of the channels where I stayed. Thankfully, I managed to catch the GP thanks to it being on FOX :D .

* = Penalized 5 seconds (:rolleyes:) after the race for speeding under safety car conditions.
+ = Penalized 20 for failing to heed the blue flags.

Scariest moment of the race was when Mark Webber was blocked by Kovalainen, sending the Aussie into a flip and into the tyre barriers at the turn, taking with him a trackside sign board. Fortunately, Webber's okay and will race at Silverstone, but the same cannot be said of the chassis, let alone the signage. Webber is getting a new chassis for the British GP.

Some news items:

Kubica to stay at Renault through 2012

Robert Kubica has extended his deal with Renault through to the end of 2012, the team has announced.

The Pole joined Renault from BMW Sauber this season, and has spearheaded a resurgence that has seen Renault get ever closer to the title contenders, taking podium finishes in Australia and Monaco.


Safety car procedures revamped

The FIA will introduce new safety car procedures from the British Grand Prix on Sunday in a bid to prevent a repeat of the controversy in Valencia a fortnight ago, AUTOSPORT has learned.

...

Instead of operating to a 'delta' time of 120% of a regular F1 lap before the cars form up behind the safety car, as under the old regulations, drivers will instead be forced to slow down to the actual estimated speed of the safety car itself.


Yamamoto to race as Senna out of HRT seat

Sakon Yamamoto has replaced Bruno Senna at HRT, not just for Friday morning practice, but the whole of the British GP weekend.

The news was confirmed by team boss Colin Kolles tonight, although he declined to be quoted officially ahead of any press statement from the team. He indicated that full story would come out shortly.


Senna will continue to race for HRT

Bruno Senna remains one of HRT's drivers and will race in the remainder of the season, his team said on Friday, despite being dropped for the British Grand Prix.

HRT revealed late on Thursday night that Sakon Yamamoto was taking Senna's place at Silverstone, although no reason for the driver change has been explained.


This one sounds like a "Thanks for the money, here have a ride!" thing to me. Remember, HRT was formerly known as Campos Meta 1 before Adrian Campos failed to find the funding to 1) run the team and 2) pay for the chassis. Campos sold his team to Collin Kolles who apparently brought enough money to run the team for at least this season, thanks in part to Yamamoto. Senna will return at the next race, which is the German GP, I think. Don't be surprised if Senna (or Chandhok) get bumped again for Yamamoto's pleasure drives <_< .
