FIA/AMD F1 SURVEY

The time has come for you to have your say over the future of Formula 1.

It is your chance to influence the shaping of Formula 1's new regulations for 2008, which are currently being debated by FIA president Max Mosley and the participating teams.

"At the beginning of 2005 the FIA launched a consultation on the future of Formula 1 with all of the sport's stakeholders," said an FIA spokesman.

"We felt that including Formula 1 fans in this process was essential.

"To help shape the future of the sport we want as many fans as possible to complete the online survey."

The FIA/AMD Formula 1 Survey 2005, is open to everyone.

The FIA is encouraging as many fans as possible to partake in the FIA/AMD research project, which you can access online now by clicking below.

* penalised for causing an avoidable accident on Saturday

Montoya stripped of his starting position

Juan Pablo Montoya will start from the back of the grid in Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix after Stewards deemed he was to blame for an accident during second practice on Saturday morning.

The Stewards said the McLaren Mercedes driver was at fault after he slowed down in front of Ralf Schumacher's Toyota, causing him to brake hard. This, in turn, forced Jacques Villeneuve and David Coulthard to become involved in a multiple collision.

The sport's governing body said in a statement 'Juan Pablo Montoya was driving unnecessarily slowly in a very fast part of the track and thereby caused a completely avoidable accident.'

But Montoya, who had finished fifth fastest in the later qualifying session, denied causing the incident and protested: "I am really disappointed that there was any action taken against it. I was going up the hill, following very close. Ralf got in front and nearly hit me and when I did that I moved in front of him. But the only reason I pulled in front was because I was behind Ralf and he slowed down. People assume I did a brake test but the only reason I moved was to avoid an accident. When I look at it the only person who didn't move out of the way of the accident was Coulthard."

"I am really frustrated because we are all working really hard and I thought I had a really good chance of having a successful race. It is very unfair."

Stewards said that video evidence was 'not very conclusive' and called for data to be presented to them from both the FIA and from on-board telemetry from Montoya's McLaren car. They said the data showed that Montoya slowed down 180 metres ahead of his normal braking point into the section and continued at the same speed he was running when he headed into of turn two.

In the statement they revealed: 'On Montoya's fast lap the speed at this point of the incident 'was 278.3km/h and in the lap involving the incident the speed was 86.4km/h.'

Both Coulthard and Schumacher provided independent statements that matched up, saying that they left the pits with Schumacher leading Coulthard when Montoya approached from the rear on a fast lap.

He was delayed 'in a minor manner' and the statement said both drivers stated he 'took exception to his lap being disturbed and subsequently drove unnecessarily slowly in a very fast part of the track.'

Villeneuve, who was also on a fast lap, was unable to stop and he hit the rear of Coulthard's Red Bull Racing machine, which then slewed into Schumacher's car while Montoya continued on unscathed.

Coulthard was happy Montoya was penalised for the incident. "Montoya gesticulated at Ralf just before turn three near the Casino and it ended in a multi-car pile-up."

Schumacher also protested and said: "I stayed well within the yellow lines and for whatever reason I held him up. Basically he brake tested me, and held me up. I am sure he didn't believe someone could crash but it just wasn't necessary."

Montoya admitted he had slowed down because his lap had been ruined but claimed his decision to brake at that point was made so that Villeneuve could get past to continue his flying lap. But McLaren team boss Ron Dennis, whose other driver Kimi Raikkonen is on provisional pole, said: "Juan Pablo will now be looking to finish in the top eight, which is not what this team is about, and it is disappointing. There is not an appeal process, so there is nothing we can do. It was in a practice session, which counts for nothing, and incidents are part of Grand Prix racing."

It was also a disastrous day for Schumacher, who will now have to start alongside Montoya at the back of the grid because he crashed into the barriers on his later flying lap in first qualifying.

EUROPEAN GRAND PRIX, NURBURGRING, 29 MAY 2005



Creation date: 1951

First F1 Grand Prix: 29 July 1951

Grand Prix held: 34

Spectactor capacity: around 140000

Track length: 5.148 km

Number of laps: 60 (308.863 Km)

Number of corners: 15 (left:6) (right:9))

Top speed: 325 Km/h

Downforce setup: medium

Best lap: M. Schumacher - 1'29''468 (2004, Ferrari)

Record Pole: M. Schumacher - 1'28''351 (2004, Ferrari)

2004 Pole: M. Schumacher - 1'28''351 (Ferrari)

2004 Podium
1. M. Schumacher
2. R. Barrichello
3. J. Button


In its early days, (1925) the Nurburgring was 17.58 miles in length, and was a seemingly endless chain of ups and downs, with many twisting curves between pine trees.

The sixties saw many a world champion win here with the great Sir Stirling Moss win his last ever race in 1961 and Jackie Stewart overcame horrendous conditions in 1968 to take the win by a full 4 minutes. Pressure from Stewart about the safety of the track, prompted the changes that took place in 1970 when barriers were installed, and the track was widened.

1976 saw the Nurburgring discontinued after Nikki Lauder suffered horrific burns, and when it returned in 1984, it was very different. It was rebuilt alongside the old track, and was reduced to 2.822 miles, with only a few interesting corners. Once again the track was modified in 1986, to its now 2.831 miles.

1995 produced an outstanding race with Michael Schumacher in the Benetton, passing the Ferrari of Jean Alesi with only three laps to go, and 96 saw Jacques Villeneuve secure his first Formula One victory. Michael Schumacher will never forget the 97 race as his younger brother, Ralf, forced him into retirement on the first lap. Both McLarens blew engines within a lap of each other, leaving Villeneuve to take the win.

McLaren's Mika Hakkinen took the win in 98, even after a Ferrari front row on the grid, but 1999 saw a fantastic win by Stewart driver Johnny Herbert. In a wet/dry race, the Englishman handed the team their maiden victory and sadly, Johnny failed to repeat the performance before he retired from the sport a year later. 2000 was Schumacher's turn for success, followed home by both McLaren drivers, Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard. Another victory came Michael's way in 2001 with Juan Pablo Montoya second, but it was the second Ferrari of Rubens Barrichello that stole the limelight in 2002 with teammate Michael Schumacher in second place.

Ralf Schumacher stormed to victory in the 2003 European Grand Prix, heading a Williams 1-2 ahead of team-mate, Juan Pablo Montoya. Ralf Schumacher won the race by a commanding 16.8 seconds, having taken the lead on lap 26 when Kimi Raikkonen's Mercedes-Benz expired. It was a doubly disappointing day for McLaren: David Coulthard spun to retirement just two-laps from the chequered flag following an intense battle with Fernando Alonso. Ferrari's Rubens Barrichello rounded off the podium standings.

Michael Schumacher took his third win in five years in 2004 as he led team-mate Barrichello across the line for another Ferrari one two result in what was their most dominant season. Takuma Sato qualified a fine second in his BAR Honda, but an engine failure ruined the Japanese driver's chance to challenge Ferrari and team-mate Jenson Button took the third position.

Well I'm getting ready to watch this race. Frankly I'm trying to learn what the appeal is of this form of racing? It seems like just a test of high powered cars and mostly a battle of manufacturers. I'm giving it a chance but so far it's not nascar. The cars are awesome but the racing kind of sucks. Too hard to pass I say.

Heading into the first turn for the 59th and last time Kimi Raikkonen’s front right Michelin was badly flat-spotted, but it was the suspension that failed due to the tremendous vibration on his McLaren Mercedes sending the unfortunate Finn spinning wildly out of the race. Watching the action unfold from a second back, Fernando Alonso was undoubtedly smiling as he completed the lap and took his fourth victory of the season for Renault.

F1 NEWS

SCOTT SPEED GETS THIRD RBR SEAT

Red Bull Racing has confirmed that American Scott Speed will be the team’s third driver in the upcoming Canadian and United States Grands Prix.

The 22-year-old GP2 standout made a strong impression during a trial run at Silverstone today, virtually matching team leader David Coulthard for pace and narrowly shading Christian Klien.

Speed will take over Friday testing duties at the North American races from Vitantonio Liuzzi, who occupied the second race seat in the last four events but will now have a brief sabbatical.

SOUTH AFRICAN GP A STEP CLOSER

The prospects for Formula 1’s mooted return to South Africa appear to have taken a step forward with the involvement of an investment firm named African Renaissance Holdings (ARH), which has joined forces with the group putting together the bid.

ARH is a ‘black economic empowerment company’ with investment in fields as diverse as gaming, mining, telecommunications and food processing.

The company says it sees huge potential for the race in terms of stimulating tourism, job creation and industrial development.

Talk of reviving the South African Grand Prix was given credence last November when F1 commercial boss Bernie Ecclestone held meetings with the bid company and declared, “We are going to South Africa – it’s not a question of if, only when.”

However, the bid company has been unable to secure a firm financial commitment from the South African government to help meet the costs arising from the construction of a brand new circuit as well as the rights fees payable to Ecclestone’s Formula One Management company.

A stalemate appeared to have been reached, but the involvement of ARH may provide the necessary impetus to drive the project forward – not least because it raises the possibility of a street race in Durban as an alternative to a new purpose-built track.

ARH has dealings with a casino company which is playing a major role in the redevelopment of Durban’s Golden Mile beachfront area, and a grand prix through the city streets could fit the bill perfectly.

Whether or not the Durban idea materialises, bid chairman David Gant is confident that South Africa will reclaim its place on the F1 schedule.

“Formula One Management and Mr Ecclestone are extremely well disposed towards staging the event in South Africa and we are probably still looking at April 2008 as the date for the first race,” said Gant.

“Mr Ecclestone is comfortable with our proposals in respect of the financial model and management plans and would like to finalise things before the end of the year.

“It is really up to the South African government to decide whether they want to support this project or not.”

The South African Grand Prix was a staple of the world championship calendar in the 1960s to mid-1980s and was last held (at the popular Kyalami circuit near Johannesburg) in 1993.

WHELDON EYES F1 SWITCH

Victorious Indianapolis 500 driver Dan Wheldon admits he would love a move to Formula One, but only on his terms.

The 27-year-old became the first Briton to win US motorsport's biggest race since Graham Hill in 1966.

"Formula One is something I would love to do but I would not want to go there just to make up the numbers," he told the Daily Telegraph.

CANADIAN GRAND PRIX, MONTREAL, 12 JUNE 2005



Creation date: 1978

First F1 Grand Prix: 8 October 1978

Grand Prix held: 26

Spectactor capacity: around 100000

Track length: 4.361 km

Number of laps: 70 (305.270 Km)

Number of corners: 12 (left:5) (right:7)

Top speed: 348 Km/h

Downforce setup: low

Best lap: R. Barrichello - 1'13''622 (2004, Ferrari)

Record Pole: R. Schumacher - 1'12''275 (2004, Williams)

2004 Pole: R. Schumacher - 1'12''275 (Williams)

2004 Podium
1. M. Schumacher
2. R. Barrichello
3. J. Button


The Canadian Grand Prix was moved to Montreal in 1978, as Mosport Park was thought to be outdated and too dangerous. It was built around the site of Expo 67, and it is a mixture of street circuit and permanent road course. Downtown Montreal is only a stone's throw away.

One look at the circuit is enough to tell the story. This track breaks many a car. The first chicane catches out even the best of driver, then there is a kink leading into the Senna hairpin, which leads the left-right "s".

The first race held on this circuit showed a maiden victory for the local hero, Gilles Villeneuve. In 1982, the track was renamed in his memory, and saw tragedy when Riccardo Paletti was involved in an opening lap accident, running into the back of Didier Pironi's stalled Ferrari, an accident that claimed Paletti's life.

The strangest finish ever remembered at Montreal was when Nigel Mansell was leading, and celebrated a little too soon. He coasted to a halt and stalled the Williams, allowing a very surprised Nelson Piquet to win his last victory for Benetton.

I an going to stick my neck out and make a prediction;

1. Michael Schumacher
2. Rubens Barrichello
3. Fernando Alonso

Basis of my positions is simply the performance factor in testing this week and their finishing positions in the last round. Schumi and Rubinho get to be in the last five cars out in qualifying and this will be a major boost to their starting track positions this time. Kimi will be strong to avenge a dissappointing show in Germany. Alonso i fear will have a tough time as he did last year. This circuit has never suited the Renault style set up and this track has always favoured Bridgestone runners. The one tyre rule is really going to be tested on this track, more than in Nurburgring. If Kimi and Fernando finished with such worned rubbers, they are going to be in serious trouble on Jaque's Father's Circuit.

*Edit OK, I have to eat my words ... Rubens blew his engine b4 qualifying! But the BARs are looking very competitive now! Button on pole!

Prior to the 2000 event, the last time a Formula One Grand Prix was held in the United States of America was back in 1991 when it was held in Phoenix. The late great Ayrton Senna claimed victory in his McLaren on the 81 lap long circuit.

The year 2000 saw the F1 circus return to America as they took to the revamped Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The circuit was constructed from the famous oval that plays host to the NASCAR Brickyard race and the Indy 500 and the new layout is now just over 4 kilometres in length.

In the beginning of the Formula One World Championship the Indy 500 counted to the drivers overall placings in the drivers' title, but this came to an end after Jim Clark and Graham Hill won back-to-back Indy 500s for the Lotus team.

The new circuit utilised the existing oval including the main straight and turn one, the cars running in clockwise direction. Additional sections were constructed in the infield to create the type of circuit the F1 cars are used to driving on.

In a race that was completely new to all 22 drivers, Ferrari driver, Michael Schumacher dominated the event from start to finish. He led home a Ferrari one two for the first time on the new circuit, continuing his domination from early in the season. Up until this race, McLaren driver, David Coulthard was still in with a chance of victory, however he was taken out of contention and was forced to watch his dreams of taking the drivers championship vanish.

2001 was double world champion Mika Hakkinen's final victory before he retired, thrilling the American fans with his special finesse after weeks of sadness due to the tragic terrorist attacks earlier in the month. In 2002 Michael Schumacher dominated the weekend from start to, almost, finish, the Ferrari star slowing down on the final lap so that teammate Rubens Barrichello could catch up and the duo could cross the line with the smallest ever margin. The attempt failed and Barrichello crossed the line first by a fraction of a second.

The 2003 race definitely began in Kimi Raikkonen's favour as he stormed away from the rest of the field having started from pole position. The rain, though, was not greeted with smiles by the Michelin runners, who saw their advantage over the Bridgestone runners dissipate. As the laps wore down Montoya watched his Championship dream die (he retired after colliding with Barrichello) while Raikkonen saw his strength, but it was Michael who had the biggest smile as he crossed the line to clinch another victory.

2004 was not a classic event by any stretch of the imagination as the race was compromised by poor decision making from race control, culminating in some serious on-track incidents. Michael Schumacher won the race from Rubens Barrichello with no last lap incidents while Takuma Sato took his first career podium in his BAR Honda.

The first lap saw four cars eliminated from the proceedings before Fernando Alonso speared off the track and into the concrete retaining wall at the end of the straight. With debris on track the race continued and a lap later Ralf Schumacher suffered a tyre failure on the final right hander, slamming backwards into the wall.

Schumacher's injury would force him to miss much of the season, but more questions were asked of race control who even with Schumacher's BWM Williams stranded on track kept the race cars circulating. To add insult to injury at Williams, Juan Pablo Montoya was disqualified from the race on lap 57 of 73 for taking the spare car just second prior to the start of the race. For 2005, US race fans need a well run event as Ferrari chase its fifth win in six years at the brickyard.

Cutting it tight eh, expo? 52 minutes to the green light?

I reckon the scarlet cars are gonna show up for this race again. This is another circuit that suits Ferrari's set-up. Their position at the end of the qualifying runs will suit them for a good starting grid slot but God forbid another start like the one last week! Renaults went past them like they were going backwards!

If qualifying goes well and Ferrari start amongst the top 6, I think we'll see red on the podium again.
