Flavio Briatore thinks his friend and regular business partner Bernie Ecclestone has pulled off a masterstroke with ‘double points’ in 2014
Actually, the innovation – where the title is kept artificially alive right until the dying moments by offering twice as many points in the season finale – is highly controversial and almost universally unpopular.
F1’s ‘silly season’ is bursting into life at Monza — and almost every team in pitlane is playing ball.
That goes even for the sport’s dominant Mercedes, and one of the highest-paid and most marketable stars, Lewis Hamilton. Boss Toto Wolff had already lifted the lid by warning that if the Briton and his teammate Nico Rosberg do not fix up their broken relationship, Mercedes might have to change its lineup for 2015.
Flavio Briatore would be a good addition as formula one finds its direction for the future.
That is the claim of Fernando Alonso, the sport’s highest paid and arguably most highly rated driver. Recently, a man always closely aligned with the trajectory of Alonso’s career – Briatore – was linked with a return to the sport as chairman of a new popularity working group.
Ferrari is paying a dear price for its geographical location, according to Flavio Briatore.
Last month, former Benetton and Renault chief Briatore said the fabled Maranello team should consider relocating to the UK. “In my opinion, Ferrari must have a base in the UK, where all of the technology of formula one is concentrated,” he said.
Azerbaijan is taking Korea’s full-time place on the F1 calendar, Bernie Ecclestone has confirmed.
It is expected a city street race in the capital Baku starting in 2015 will be announced later this month. F1 chief executive Ecclestone this week indicated the oil-rich former Soviet race is taking the place on the calendar formerly occupied by South Korea, where a race at unpopular Yeongam was last held in 2013.
