    Gotta add in Kobayashi and Ericsson for Caterham

    Tbh, Caterham would have had a fairly decent lineup if they'd managed to get Kovaleinen instead of Ericsson who has been in GP2 for years and done nothing.

    Not sure if i've posted this here before or not but I feel as if I should. Got a lot of time for George The Poet. He got me into spoken word poetry

    I can listen to him for hours but this F1 poem is just perfect. Guy has talent!

    These head injuries are not to be taken lightly, people can often walk away in near perfect health then deteriorate rapidly.

    Schumi really bad, latest news:

    Doctors say Michael Schumacher's condition 'extremely serious'

    Michael Schumacher remains in an induced coma and his critical condition has been described by doctors as 'extremely serious' following his skiing accident on Sunday.

    The seven-time world champion suffered a severe head injury after hitting his head on a rock, and is currently undergoing treatment in a hospital in Grenoble.

    During a press conference on Monday morning, the doctors looking after Schumacher made it clear just how serious Schumacher's injuries were, and said it was too early to offer a prognosis.

    Professor Jean-Francois Payen said: "I would say that this accident was particularly serious and was dealt with immediately at our hospital.

    "He was immediately operated on after a brain scan and afterwards his condition is critical.

    "As far as cerebral care [is concerned], all the recommended treatments have been introduced, but for the moment we are not able to express ourselves with regard to Michael Schumacher's future.

    "He is in a critical condition and his condition is said to be extremely serious. He is in intensive care."

    The medical team confirmed that Schumacher was being kept in an induced coma to help his chances of recovery, having being operated on after it was found he had suffered cerebral contusion and edema. He has also suffered lesions to his brain.

    The severity of Schumacher's injuries and his current condition means doctors are unable to make any predictions about whether or not the German will be able to make a full recovery.

    Payen added: "We are currently not able to talk about after effects. We are talking about treatments and working hour-by-hour.

    "We are going to try to gain time, and try to give ourselves some time. The treatments that are going to be introduced, we know what we are hoping for from these treatments.

    "But currently I am not able to give you any more information, and cannot tell you what direction we are going in or what prognosis we are going to have."

    Doctors do believe that Schumacher's fitness should help his chances of recovering though.

    Latest news on Schumacher:

    Michael Schumacher's condition improves after second operation

    Michael Schumacher's condition has shown a slight improvement, but the seven times Formula 1 world champion remains in an induced coma in a critical condition.

    Schumacher underwent a second operation overnight to remove another haematoma, which has helped to reduce the inter-cranial pressure he sustained in a skiing accident on Sunday.

    The second procedure took place at 10pm on Monday night after examinations revealed an unexpected improvement in the 44-year-old's condition.

    This allowed the medical team in the Grenoble hospital to access a large haematoma on the left side of his brain.

    Dr Emmanual Gay said: "There was one haematoma that was larger and more accessible, so we were able to get rid of it without any risk.

    "Thanks to that we were better able to control inter-cranial pressure. There's still a lot of haemorrhaging."

    The medical team said that there remained a number of lesions on Schumacher's brain and that it is still impossible to make any prognosis about his future recovery.

    They confirmed that Schumacher will remain in a coma for as long as is necessary, but that he is in a more stable condition than had been the case during the previous 24 hours.

    "We have a strategy to correct a number of anomalies that continue and we want to give ourself some time during this phase of stability," said Professor Jean-Francois Payen.

    "There are some important matters we need to think about for the future."

    Schumacher's family were consulted before the second operation and remain by his bedside.

    It is all systems go for the return of the Austrian Grand Prix with the Red Bull Ring finally given regional government approval to host the race.The FIA rubberstamped the event for June 22 in its 2014 calendar, but the track in Spielberg still needed permission from the Styria government.
    However, all the loose ends have now been tied up and the country will be part of the Formula One season for the first time since 2003.
    According to Autosport, the Red Bull Ring - which used to be known as the Osterreichring and then the A1-Ring in later years - will only be able to accommodate 225,000 people over the three days.
    The circuit underwent major upgrades after it was bought by Red Bull owner Dietrich Mateschitz in 2004, but only 40,000 spectators were allowed in per day.
    That number, though, is likely to increase to 80,000 on the Saturday and Sunday of the race weekend next year.
    Source

    Hate this period of the year. No decent F1 news for ages. Only a few weeks to go until testing though. Yay

    Well it's great to see the Osterreichring back as I quite liked that track but the capacity does seem very week compared to today's other tracks with seating capacities of over 300k!

    Also some sad news as Brian Hart died. He's the one that worked on his own engines and the Ford Cosworth engines for F1 and creating a lot of success - especially for Senna. His engines also got Jordan into the top 5 at the end of the season too which back in 1994 was quite remarkable seeing as there were over 30 teams trying to qualify for only 13 team spots on the grid back then (remember Friday qualifying?). Excellent super cheap engines and a great engineer.

    The 110% rule or whatever the percentage was. The drivers could be no more than 110% of the pole position otherwise they couldnt race?

    That is more or less correct mate yes, but it was also up to the stewards to decide where they would take their practice times into account and if they where within the 110% time then there is a possibility then can still race!

    The old format up until I think 1996 was that you had a format consisting of:
    • Thursday - Practice 1 and Practice 2
    • Friday - Practice 3 and Quali 1
    • Saturday - Practice 4 and Quali 2
    • Sunday - Race

    The best lap time from the two qualification days was counted as your best time, however in Quali 1 was whether you made it to Quali 2 with that 110% rule. With that being said a lot of teams made it into Quali 2 however only the top 13 teams made it through to the race. Around 1997 onwards was when you saw teams dropping out of F1 significantly due to the cost of being able to stay in and compete (thank you Bernie...), it went down to 10 teams at one stage and this is where all of the cost cutting has been in so much focus, especially now where it's a miracle that most of the teams are still able to stay in F1.

    Also one thing I hope they do soon is getting rid of those bloody simulators and head back onto the track, there have been many many personnel saying that it was cheaper to run the cars and develop them on track than it was via wind tunnels, CFD, and simulators. Ironic no?

    if my memory serves me correctly, the 2 qualifying sessions set up was dropped when they brought in the 107% restriction, so they never overlapped.

    They did do that yes but that was when there weren't quite as many teams as there used to be, 1996 I think is when they brought in the 107% rule with Saturday only Quali and 12 laps maximum, but then you had Quali tyres which were super sticky and lasted only 3 or 4 laps.

    you're thinking of pre-qualifying which was done away with in the early 90's, this was a session in its own right for the worst teams of the grid to fight it out to see who would get into the 2 main qualifying sessions.

    the 12 laps max had been in place even longer than that.

    the 107% rule has only existed in F1 with the single qualifying session setup.
