Horner advocates for F1 schedule adjustment amidst concerns about the challenging conditions in Las Vegas.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner is urging Formula 1 to reconsider the scheduling of the Las Vegas Grand Prix in the wake of what he describes as a “grueling” inaugural event for the teams.

Due to the unconventional track layout, the race schedule had to be adjusted to run a day earlier and during late hours to mitigate potential traffic issues.

George Russell calls on the FIA to address the track limit debate in Formula 1

George Russell calls on the FIA to address the track limit debate in Formula 1

After the United States Grand Prix, Mercedes driver George Russell is urging the FIA to address the persistent problem of track limits in Formula 1. Russell’s plea follows a penalty he received for exceeding track limits during the Sprint race, reigniting the debate over these ‘get-out-of-jail-free cards’ at specific circuits. The penalty stemmed from Russell gaining an advantage by running wide at Turn 15 while overtaking Oscar Piastri’s McLaren. This incident occurred after drivers’ complaints led race officials to widen the white lines at three corners post-qualifying. However, the penalties for violating these limits, often just a five-second addition to ...

Following Hamilton and Leclerc’s disqualification, FIA elucidates the scrutineering procedure.

The disqualifications of Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc at the United States Grand Prix sparked a debate over F1’s scrutineering procedures. Both the Mercedes and Ferrari drivers were excluded from the race due to wear on their plank’s skid blocks, which led to non-compliance with Technical Regulations.

FERRARI: MEIGNAN LEAVES MARANELLO. OTHER TECHNICIANS READY TO SAY GOODBYE, BUT VASSEUR HAS REINFORCEMENTS READY.

With just four races left in the season, it can be reasonably affirmed that Ferrari’s 2023 has proven to be challenging and complex, at least judging by the results and performance displayed. The Scuderia, up until now (with the exception of sporadic flashes), has struggled to grasp and optimize the SF-23 car, which despite being the evolution of the F1-75, has proven troublesome and capricious; to the extent of dropping the red team to third place in the constructors’ standings. A present that, upon closer examination, is further complicated and unstable due to the ongoing transition phase within the team, ...
