If he's there...


Apparently he wants $50m a year with a four year contract!! Daimler said no.

I expect he will be though

Also, Imola is front runner for the vacant spot according to some sources

Inevitably, there's increasing talk of the Australian GP being postponed or even cancelled. A decision is likely within 2 weeks. The main reasons are Australia's strict Covid quarantine laws and the need to begin constructing the circuit before the end of January

Going risky there I see!

I think Australia will be cancelled again personally. And to be fair would that even be that bad? Overrated track imo, gets a free pass every year because it's the traditional season-opener and everyone's excited but it's a poor circuit for racing.

I'd like to see Portimao, Istanbul, Sepang & Mugello back if the calendar needs another upheaval!

As expected the Australian GP has been postponed cancelled with Bahrain to take over as season opener. That means that 3 of the last 4 rounds will have been hosted at the Sakhir circuit - certainly a record that'll never be matched!

Actually, please can we have the Bahrain outer circuit again in its place, what an amazing race that was.

Portimao is emerging as front runner to replace the Chinese GP, which is likely to by cancelled. Australia potentially reorganised for Nov 21st with Brazil and Saudi GPs shuffled to make room

Also, race starts will return to a 2pm start time from 2021 onwards

Potential spoiler of Alpine's 2021 livery has apparently leaked ahead of an official announcement on the 14th... On the below tweet, I guess if you don't wanna get hopes up for something that *may* not be correct (and I don't know the accuracy of the source. Lol), don't click!

TWEET LINK

(Edited, because apparently I'm rusty as posting links 😂 - 5th time lucky...)

The livery in that video is this one 👇🏻 from the announcement they were changing name.

QUOTE(Quarantilas @ Jan 1 2021, 01:02 AM) *
They did tease a livery in the announcement so i was hoping it would turn out like this



The big news today seems to be that the Suzuki Moto GP team boss has been poached to head up Alpine-Renault F1

As expected Chinese Grand Prix postponed, Imola confirmed as the second race of the season, the TBC race likely to be Portimao.

If they can find a new date for the Chinese Grand Prix, are they going to have 24 races this season then? Or is it looking likely that the Chinese Grand Prix will probably end up getting cancelled?!

Haha exactly my thoughts.

I'm sure Alonso had something to do with it. He pretty much runs the team now from the sounds of it.

Na they'll just drop the 'TBC' race as Imola effectively would have taken that spot. Of all the emergency tracks from last year I'd have preferred pretty much all of them over Imola but it's still a good track and hopefully they'll put it on the F1 video game this season!

All likelihood is China race will cancelled altogether. Melbourne in November (if it happens) will be interesting and unusual too.

Portugal is back as the TBC they reckon. China I think will be a goner but itís really no loss tbh. It can take a few others off the calendar with it

I wouldnít be surprised is Nando ended up as our team principal after retiring as driver. Theres something about the combination of Alonso, Renault (or Alpine as it may now be) and Enstone. Itís special. I also have no qualms about Nando calling the shots again. Like I said, bring back Flav letís get the dream team back together.
