The Hinwil-based team have recently faced tough weekends where they were forced to bounce back from a particularly tricky first few days of training.

As well as losing track time due to reliability issues, its drivers Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu had to prepare for races with older specification developments.

This was because the team had been tight on spares and didn’t want to risk a crash on Friday, leaving it without its newest components for the rest of a race weekend.

But having finally caught up with production of spare parts at its factory, Alfa Romeo will be able to fit both cars with the latest developments from this weekend’s race at Silverstone.

Alfa Romeo ground engineering manager Xevi Pujolar said of the situation: “On Friday we still have reliability issues, and that is something we are working to improve.

“But also in terms of performance on Friday, we ran older packages on Friday. From the next race we will be able to do the same package for the whole weekend, so everything will be easier.

Pujolar said the spare parts limitation was the consequence of accidents earlier in the year, including Zhou’s departure from the Imola sprint, which diverted resources from the factory.

“We had a few incidents at the start of the season,” he said. “Then you just have to catch up with all the production of spare parts from the packages that we use, and in parallel to have the production of the new packages, which is something that has been the limitation. Now, from Silverstone, we are already in a good position.

“We also took a little margin. Circuits like Baku, Montreal and Monaco too, when you’re close to the walls, we wanted to make sure that if we had damage on Friday, we wouldn’t want to pay the consequences later. But now it will be better for the next races at least.

Alfa Romeo has delivered impressive pace at times this season, and Pujolar says he is aiming to battle just ahead of the chasing pack behind Red Bull and Ferrari at Silverstone.

“I think we can expect to fight at the top of midfield, but we have to see,” he explained.

“I don’t know if some teams will bring [upgrade] packages at Silverstone, but so far I would say we’ve been pretty consistent across all tracks – so different kinds of tracks and different kinds of aero efficiency as well.

“For the next two races, we expect to fight at the top of the midfield with Alpine and McLaren, and see if we can get more points, and double the points. That’s our target.

“We’re in a position where we want to be in Q3 with both cars, and if that’s so we can have some strong races against Alpine first.”

The reason why Alex Espargaró does not participate in the Assen GP

At the German GP he suffered a series of crashes which at first glance didn’t seem serious, but caused him rib and lung problems which affected his driving. After Free Practice 2 on Friday, Espargaró continued to experience severe pain and discomfort. As a result, he feels unable to compete on a MotoGP motorcycle and, along with the Repsol Honda team, has opted out of the race in Assen.

With the capital of British Columbia bordered by water, it’s no surprise that the city is in the running to host an upcoming Sail Grand Prix (SailGP) competition.

SailGP calls it “the most existing race on the water” and says the 2023/24 event, which is expected to attract visitors from around the world, could be held in any of four Canadian cities, including the coast. of Victoria.

“It would also generate significant economic impact, enliven the sailing community and produce international media coverage that would establish the host city as an iconic waterfront destination…” SailGP said.

Following a competitive national bidding process with interest from over ten potential cities, Halifax, Nova Scotia; Kingston, Ontario; and Montreal, Quebec are also shortlisted to host the fourth season of SailGP.

“It is a great testament to the impressive growth of our championship to see so much interest from coast to coast to host the inaugural Sailing Grand Prix of Canada,” said SailGP CEO Sir Russell Coutts. .

Coutts finds Canada has “a passion for high performance sport” and says that at last weekend’s United States Grand Prix sailing in Chicago, support went to the Canadian team, which includes Victoria’s Jareese Finch.

According to SailGP, the host city selection process will end at the end of October to give the winning venue enough time to prepare for the event.

“Our vision is to create a catalyst for the growth and accessibility of the sport of sailing in Canada,” added Fred Pye, Founder of the Canada SailGP Team.

“Bringing a SailGP event to Canada for the first time, on local waters, would be an amazing experience for Canadian fans and our athletes.”

Celebrating its 37th anniversary this year, the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix presented by Visit Sarasota County is the oldest continuous regular season competition in offshore racing. The July 3 event is also the third of eight races in the American Power Boat Association’s Offshore National Championship Series and the second contest in the Union International Motonautique Class 1 World Championship Series. Based in UK Motorboat P1/P1 Offshore produced both events, as previously reported on speedonthewater.com.

At least 10 Super Stock teams are expected to take the green flag next month at the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix, the third of eight races in the American Power Boat Association’s Offshore National Championship Series. 2021 Sarasota Grand Prix photo by Pete Boden copyright Take 2 sensational photos.

The biggest internal change for Southwest Florida? It is no longer affiliated with Suncoast Summerfest or Suncoast Charities for Children, which for decades was its primary benefactor. New for offshore racing fans, Class 1 teams will battle it out for pole position on Saturday, July 2, from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the more than four-mile course off the Lido beach.

Qualifying for pole position in class 1, as well as Sunday races, will be broadcast on the P1 Offshore Facebook page. Sunday action begins at 8:30 a.m. with Aqua X watercraft races, with full-size offshore powerboat races due to start at 10 a.m., followed by races due to start at 11:15 a.m., 12:45 p.m., 2 p.m. 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Race #1 will feature the Bracket 500, 600 and 700 classes. The second race of the day will feature the Stock and Mod V classes, as well as the Bracket 300 and 400. Class 1 will race alone in Race #3 , as did the Super Stock class in the fourth race of the day. The final race of the afternoon will feature Super Cat and 450R Factory Stock.

The second event in the 10-race UIM Class 1 series, the Sarasota Powerboat Grand Prix is ​​expected to see a five-team contest. With a series opener win in Cocoa Beach, Florida, Chocolate Husky is the team to beat and 222 Off Australiawho led much of the Cocoa Beach event before it broke down, will have something to prove. Chocolate Husky throttle Steve Curtis will be joined in the cockpit by motorsports great Travis Pastrana, who replaces Brit Lilly as the team’s driver, likely for the rest of the season.

According to Super Cat class representative Tyler Miller of the CON M team, nine teams entered the Sarasota race. With a win for Graydel at Cocoa Beach and CON M Claiming victory at the Lake Race, Sarasota’s contest should be intriguing, especially if a third Super Cat team emerges victorious. But the biggest problem for the class is actually being able to race this year in Sarasota, as delays in 2021 forced organizers to cancel the final race of the day, which included Super Cat and Class 1. P1 was heavily criticized for the past year. cancellation, as the organization was for the long delays of the Thunder On Cocoa Beach 2021 event, which it also produced. Powerboat P1 leader Azam Rangoonwala has promised dramatic improvement, and if the 2022 Cocoa Beach event goes smoothly, Rangoonwala and the P1 Offshore Race Production team are keeping their word.

Superb stock

What do Jackhammer and Steele Industries have in common? A Maldonado has strangled every Super Stock class racing boat to victory this season.

Expect Super Stock to have the largest fleet of any class in every APBA series this season and you won’t be disappointed. According to class representative Ryan Beckley, more than 10 teams will be in the game if current plans hold. “A few are still struggling to get here after Lake Race repairs,” said Beckley, who calls Sarasota home. During the opening of the Cocoa Beach season, the Jackhammer team of Reese Langheim and Ricky Maldonado took the checkered flag. At the Lake Race, the Steele Industries The team of Dominic Steele and Julian Maldonado – the youngest son of Ricky Maldonado – ran a fast race in their skate to claim victory in the Super Stock class. Although both teams put in strong performances, the Super Stock class at Sarasota is wide open and could see a third team take the checkered flag in as many races.

Factory Stock 450R

An official class this season, 450R Factory Stock will have at least two teams in Sarasota.

Although a third team may join Taylor Scism and John Tomlinson from TS Motorsports and Randy Keys and Bill Allen in Klovar Motorsports, both teams would be for Sarasota. The good news for 450R Factory Stock is that it became an official APBA class this year, and Scism and Tomlinson, who prevailed at Cocoa Beach, have much-loved competition. But a third team would be more than welcome as, under APBA rules, teams cannot score national points with fewer than three boats in any given area.

Stock V and Mod V

Although Smith and Brit Lilly prevailed in Cocoa Beach in their LSB / Hurricane of Awesomeness Stock V racing boat, the team was unable to make it to the Lake Race. This Stock V class win went to Offshore Motorboat Association President Ed “Smitty” Smith and his son, Anthony Smith in Wazzup. On the Mod V side, the veteran sun print the cockpit duo of Steve Miklos and Steve Fehrman won the checkered flag and Brian Forehand and Vinnie Diorio in Marker 17 Navy picked up a win at the Lake Race.

Model Winnie Harlow wreaked havoc by waving the checkered flag a lap too early at the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix.

Many celebrities have had the honor of waving the checkered flag at the end of a race. David Beckham did the honors in Bahrain in 2019, while tennis star Serena Williams concluded the Monaco Grand Prix in 2021.

But none of these had the same impact as Jamaican-Canadian stunner Harlow, who wrote her name in the F1 history books with her appearance at the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix. Harlow, who is a friend of seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, was given the prestigious role of ending the 70-lap race.

Unfortunately for the 27-year-old Victoria’s Secret model, the crossed lines of communication meant she was told to wave the checkered flag on lap 69 – one lap earlier than the scheduled finish.

Harlow duly took a look around the circuit and excitedly waved the black and white checkered flag as race leader Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line to set off on his final lap.

Who do you think will win the Canadian Grand Prix? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.



Harlow’s early intervention caused mass confusion

It led to huge confusion for Ferrari ace Vettel, who told his bosses to ask for the flag to be dropped as he went about his business on his final trip to Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Fortunately, Harlow pretty much remembered to produce the flag when Vettel came down the pit straight for the last time at the end of the next lap, confirming his victory.

However, F1 chiefs then sweat after recalling that Sporting Regulation 43.2 states that an early checkered flag means the final race standings must be taken from when it was driven. Luckily for everyone, especially Harlow, drama was rare on the final lap, with no overtaking on the final trip around the circuit.

“Some of the marshals were already celebrating,” Vettel said afterwards of the bizarre incident. “I was just worried that people wouldn’t jump on the track and start celebrating. We’re still going full throttle.”

In a later Instagram post, Harlow revealed that someone told him to wave the checkered flag at the end of lap 69, not lap 70, absolving him of any blame.

“WHEN THEY TELL YOU TO ACT THE FLAG ONE TURN TOO EARLY! You had a job sir!!! Hahaha, but so thankful that everyone was safe today and no one got hurt because of this,” she wrote.

The late FIA ​​race director Charlie Whiting backed up Harlow’s claim, saying: “She got the order too soon. So it’s not her fault.” He [a local Montreal official] asked the race director if the race was on the last lap.

“But they understood it not as a question but as a statement and said ok. Wherever there are people there will be mistakes. We have different communication systems and different languages ​​on each track.

F1 chief executive Ross Brawn also defended Harlow and hit out at social media trolls who slammed the stunning model in the aftermath of the Canadian Grand Prix.

“Supermodel Winnie Harlow was an innocent victim at the end of the race. He was asked to wave the checkered flag but was told to do so after 69 of the 70 laps had been completed,” he said. said Brawn.

“I was sad to see her so heavily criticized when, as race director Charlie Whiting explained, it was all down to a misunderstanding between two officials,” added Brawn.

“Winnie simply followed the instructions given to her and I would like to apologize for the grief she has suffered and thank her for supporting Formula 1.”

F1 organizers are hoping for a calmer conclusion to the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend.

Hamilton finished fourth in Azerbaijan but described his experience in the 51-lap race as ‘painful’

Formula 1’s governing body, the FIA, said it was taking action for safety reasons to reduce the high-speed rebounds that have plagued drivers this season.

The FIA ​​now has issued a technical directiveexternal link to teams explaining how they plan to combat “porpoising”.

The ninth round of the 2022 season takes place in Canada this weekend.

In a statement, the governing body said it had decided to intervene after “consultation with its doctors in the interests of driver safety”.

He added: “In a sport where competitors regularly drive at speeds in excess of 300km/h, it is considered that a driver’s full concentration must be focused on that task and that excessive fatigue or pain experienced by a driver could have significant consequences if it results in a loss of concentration.

“In addition, the FIA ​​is concerned about the immediate physical impact on the health of the drivers, a number of whom have reported back pain following recent events.”

“Porpoising” is caused by the floor of the car being sucked so close to the ground at a speed that downforce is temporarily lost until the ride height of the car increases, before lowering it back down.

It’s a phenomenon that has returned to F1 for the first time in 40 years this season following new car designs introduced to bring racing closer together.

Initially, the FIA’s measures will focus on examining the floorboards and pads under the car “both in terms of design and observed wear” and efforts to calculate an “acceptable level of vertical oscillations” – in other words, how much the car is allowed to bounce.

He will then arrange a technical meeting with the teams to review the data and form a plan to reduce the problem in the long term.

What did the drivers say?

After slowly getting out of his car and rubbing his back at the end of last weekend’s race in Baku, Hamilton wrote on Instagram that the aggressive rebound was “100 times worse” than it looks but that he was “motivated to keep pushing” and already felt better. .

It came after Hamilton’s team-mate George Russell said in build-up to the race in Azerbaijan that safety was becoming a concern over bouncing cars.

Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz has previously questioned the long-term effects of the rebound on health, adding: “How much should a driver pay for his back and his health in an F1 career with this kind of motoring philosophy? “

And in an interview with BBC Sport earlier this week, Alfa Romeo driver Valtteri Bottas warned that ‘porpoising’ was “getting quite serious” and thought it could hurt drivers.

He added: “[I’m] I don’t know if that’s sustainable in the future and we’re starting to see driver injuries just from driving the cars – that’s not how it should be.”

Meanwhile, McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo said the bouncing many drivers experienced was “not normal or comfortable”.

“The position we’re sitting in the car, we don’t have a lot of room to move, so we’re not prepared for impacts,” added the Australian. “Whether it depends on a rule change or how the teams prepare the cars, I’m not 100% sure. But I wouldn’t like anyone to suffer unnecessary injury or pain.”

However, Ricciardo’s team-mate Lando Norris has previously suggested that teams suffering from the worst rebound – such as Mercedes – have a range of options to reduce the problem, including “raising the rear ride height by 20mm “.

It’s a view shared by Red Bull team boss Christian Horner, who says that “the easiest way is to raise the car”, but the teams most affected are reluctant to do so due to the effect it would have on performance.

“Every team has a choice,” added Horner. “If it was a real safety issue on the grid it would have to be looked into, but if it only affects isolated teams it is something the team should potentially deal with.”

Ferrari reported on Twitter yesterday:

After the double DNF last Sunday, team boss Mattia Binotto said: “It was definitely a bad day. Compared to last year, we have made great strides in terms of performance, but there is certainly still room for improvement in terms of reliability.

“In Canada, where we aim to make up for that. Before that, we will analyze the failures we have experienced here and try to deal with them until we can master them. There is certainly still work to be done,” added Binotto.

Ferrari is now 80 points behind Red Bull in the constructors’ standings after eight races, with Leclerc dropping to third place overall and 34 points behind world champion and leader Max Verstappen.

After three races, Leclerc was 46 points clear of Red Bull’s Verstappen and Ferrari looked like they had a good chance of winning a first title since 2008, but their unreliability hit them hard.

Sunday’s race in Montreal takes place on a circuit named after Gilles Villeneuve, great Canadian Ferrari champion, and is a must race for the Reds and their title contender, to stay in the hunt. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin)

Nine months after taking office, Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna is expected to explain this week how the automaker will preserve its premium cachet and prices in a future of electrified cars.

The Italian luxury sports car maker is due to unveil its highly anticipated business plan this Thursday, heading into the new era of cleaner, quieter and electric mobility.

It’s a particular challenge for Ferrari, which has built its brand over decades by perfecting the roaring, super-powerful engines that power its cars and, of course, through motorsport, particularly Formula 1; first love of founder Enzo Ferrari.

Vigna, a technology veteran with 26 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, who started at Ferrari last September, is responsible for marrying innovation and tradition.

“We should expect a clear focus on the technology transition, qualifying the key burning question as how the business will evolve in this new environment, not just in terms of the product portfolio,” said Marco Santino, partner for the automotive practice at Oliver Management Consultants. Wyman.

Ferrari has already presented four hybrid models and promised its first fully electric car in 2025

Ferrari said strategic partnerships will be key to gaining access to new technologies while controlling capital expenditure.

The company is expected to reveal relevant areas for new partnerships, which could develop on the model of an existing tie-up with Britain’s Yasa, now part of Mercedes (MBGn.DE), which provides electric propulsion technology for cars. hybrid models from Ferrari. .

The CEO said earlier this year that Ferrari would rely on partners to develop bio and synthetic fuels which could be an additional green option alongside all-electric technology.

By announcing its first sport utility vehicle (SUV), the Purosangue, for the coming months, Ferrari is also entering a lucrative market segment where rivals such as Lamborghini, part of the Volkswagen Group (VOWG_p.DE), already operate .

“A key medium-term challenge is to maintain the best profitability while supporting a unique effort in the development of new technologies and innovative solutions,” Santino said.

The F1 team – without a title since 2008 – is one area where Vigna could leave a mark

Besides core technology, Vigna has a number of other areas where it could make its mark, analysts say, including data and connectivity, intellectual property, Formula 1 motorsport performance and increased complexity. of manufacturing.

Ferrari’s lineup has grown to nine models, plus limited-edition cars, in recent years, with six-, eight-, 12-cylinder, hybrid and soon to be all-electric engines being produced.

Investors seem to be keeping the faith. Shares of the company have remained almost flat over the past 12 months, against an 18% drop for the European auto index and a 13% drop for the luxury index.

Rival Aston Martin lost nearly 70% over the same period, while shares of Tesla (TSLA.O) were among the few to outperform Ferrari. But Vigna has something to prove.

“There’s a lot to do on the next capital market day to shift the valuation metrics for a company that seems to have been on autopilot for the past few years and may need a transformation strategy,” Jefferies analysts said. (Report by Giulio Piovaccari; Additional reporting by Stefano Bernabei)

How does Formula 1 Fantasy work?

If you’re familiar with using DraftKings for NASCAR, this Formula 1 format is going to feel really, really different than what you’re used to. That’s a lot closer to the NFL’s one-game showdown slates than anything on the NASCAR side.

So here’s how the notation and format work. You will choose five pilots and a manufacturer. One of these drivers will be your captain, which will earn you 1.5 times more points but will also cost 1.5 times more than they usually cost. For the constructor, you choose one of the F1 teams.

So here’s how scoring works. Your driver only gets points if they finish in the top 10. Here’s a chart explaining how that breaks down.

Finishing point DraftKings Points
1 25
2 18
3 15
4 12
5 ten
6 8
seven 6
8 4
9 2
ten 1

Additionally, the driver with the fastest lap of the race gets three points. You get 0.1 points per lap led, five points for beating your teammate, one point for being classified at the finish (90% finish of the race, essentially) and points for place differential. Finish three places higher than your position on the grid and you get two points. Finish five best and you get three points. Finish 10 best to get five points. You also lose points for a negative place differential, starting at three points.

Manufacturer points work the same way, with a few extra points if both cars perform well.

It’s confusing, but for Formula 1 DFS to work it probably had to be confusing.

Now that we’re past that point, let’s talk pilots. And bear with me, because this whole F1 fantasy is new to all of us.

Captain/Builder Stack Pick: Sergio Perez ($15,300), Red Bull Racing ($11,400)

Starts 2nd

At this point, I’m going to stack a captain and his builder until someone tells me I’m wrong.

I think for the most part we conceptualized the captaincy as the home of Verstappen and Leclerc. It was no place to get cute, as these two have dominated this season.

We have a third name that emerged as part of the conversation with the captain and that is Perez, who has finished second or better in four of the last five races and finally broke through with a win in the last race, leading 44 of the 64 towers in Monaco.

He is also the defending winner of this race, leading eight of the 51 laps last year on his way to victory. Teammate Verstappen’s issues certainly contributed to this as he led 29 laps before crashing out, but with Perez starting ahead of Verstappen in this race I think he has a good chance of being the best of the Red drivers. Bull.

And being captain of Red Bull also gives you the Verstappen exposure you’ll need. It’s a win-win.

Valtteri Bottas ($7,400)

Starts on the 15th

Bottas will come off the grid in 15th position, which gives him a good place differential on the upside. He’s finished in the top 10 in all but one race this year and if he can do it again he’ll earn the fantastic three points for finishing five better than where he started.

Bottas is a former winner here, although he returned when driving for Mercedes. Still, he has raced well here in the past and should easily surpass Alfa Romeo teammate Guanyu Zhou, who has finished 15th or less four times in a row.

Kevin Magnussen ($5,800)

Starts on the 16th

Magnussen has had a weird year. He started well, finishing in the top 10 in three of the last four races. But now he’s had a DNF in two of the last three races.

He had speed in qualifying, however, and starts four places ahead of team-mate Mick Schumacher, giving him an early points advantage for finishing ahead of a team-mate. Magnussen is clearly ahead of Schumacher this season, but bad luck has hurt his overall output. He is a candidate to move up five places on the grid and get the fantasy points associated with that.

Pierre Gasly ($5,200)

Starts 6th

Gasly starts sixth for Alphatauri. He’s averaging just a fantastic 3.1 points per race this season, but Gasly was in the top 10 every practice and finished third here last year. Everyone has a track where they outperform, and for Gasly, it looks like Baku is that track.

His teammate Yuki Tsunoda qualified eighth, so there’s a bit of concern here that Gasly won’t finish ahead of his teammate. But as long as he runs a clean race and the speed he showed in practice doesn’t wear off, I’d bet on Gasly to be the best Alphatauri rider and have his best fantasy since Imola.

Sebastien Vettel ($4,200)

Starts on 9

Finally, we have Sebastian Vettel. With Aston Martin team-mate Lance Stroll starting 19th, we can practically score him for those points. He’s only finished in the top 10 twice this season, but it’s worth noting that one of those times was when he finished ninth at Monaco. He seems to be improving over the year and he’s a tough driver to pass.

He has also never finished below fourth place here. Sure, four of those starts were with Ferrari, but he finished second here last year for Aston Martin, his only podium finish last season. Great track for Vettel.
