Name the Next Ferrari F1 Car…

Ferrari has given race fans the opportunity to name its 2014 contender ahead of its unveiling on 25 January.

Rather than designating the car name in-house, the Maranello outfit has invited race fans to make the choice, the options being between F14 T, F14 Maranello, F14 Scuderia, F166 Turbo or F616.

Voting is now open (here) and will close on 24 January 12:30 (CET), the day before the 2014 car is unveiled ahead of its track debut just a few days later in Jerez.

In addition to naming the car, fans can also put questions to Stefano Domenicali and drivers Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen, the three answering the most “interesting and stimulating””questions in a video which will also go out on the day of the car’s unveiling.

F1 Launch Dates Set…. Here we go !

Just three teams — Lotus, Marussia and Force India — have yet to set dates for their launches. Lotus previously said that it would wait until next month’s test at Bahrain before unveiling its 2014 car. The Bahrain tests are slated for Feb. 19-22 and Feb. 27-March 2.

Honda back in F1 with McLaren

McLaren has officially announced they will be racing with Honda engines from 2015 onwards.

Here you have the McLaren-Honda partnership in numbers:

5 years of partnership – 1988 to ‘92

80 grands prix starts

53 pole positions – a 66 per cent strike rate

44 victories – a 55 per cent win rate

30 fastest laps – 10 in 1988 alone

8 world championships – drivers’ titles for Ayrton Senna (1988, 1990, 1991) and Alain Prost (1989), and constructors’ titles in 1988, 1989, 1990 and 1991

3 race-winning engine configurations – 1.5-litre turbo V6, 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V10, 3.5-litre naturally aspirated V12

F1 to Long Beach? Doubtful….

I posted comments from Gordon Kirby last week re: the possibility of Long Beach looking at F1 back in the streets.  In discussions around the e – “water cooler”, the consensus is that this will never happen with the current track configuration, the paddock space and just the general lack of run offs.  That and the fact that the current owners of the race would be hard pressed to sell one of the most profitable races on the calendar.

That’s my sense, what is yours?

This just In – Next Year’s F1 (Proposed) Schedule –

Interesting that US F1 is in November – ;  my guess is weather (too hot to do it for a No. America swing for Canada) and it gives them time to finish the place!
