As Orlen Transfers To AlphaTauri & Alfa Romeo Secures A New Sponsor, Kubica Leaves Formula1

As Orlen Transfers To AlphaTauri & Alfa Romeo Secures A New Sponsor, Kubica Leaves Formula1

January 27, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake will be the name of the Swiss team’s new title sponsor, Stake, an online casino and gambling outfit.

Orlen debuted in Formula One in 2019 while Kubica was a racer for Williams, and the following year he switched to Alfa Romeo. Kubica joined the Swiss team as a reserve and FP1 driver because there was no open race seat. He kept both positions for three seasons.

In 2021, he was given the chance to compete in the Dutch and Italian GPs when Kimi Raikkonen’s COVID-19 test result was discovered.

Before the end of the previous season, there were rumor’s that Orlen would be leaving. At the time, it was believed that the Swiss team had already secured a new title sponsor.

However, there was still a potential that the business might continue, although in a supporting capacity, in a manner similar to how BWT stepped back at Aston Martin in 2021 after serving as Racing Point’s title sponsor earlier.


Instead, Orlen Is Now A Principal Partner At AlphaTauri


Kubica severed connections with Alfa Romeo at the conclusion of the last season, and it’s believed that he won’t be able to drive for the Faenza team. As a result, it’s possible that his FP1 session in Abu Dhabi will be his final time behind the wheel of an F1 vehicle.

Orlen’s plans were inquired about by Autosport that weekend, and he responded: “I don’t know; I don’t want to speak for the others. I’m not in their position; I’m not dealing with the finances. Naturally, as I said, I must take care of my responsibilities and belongings, and this is my first priority.

“Probably after that, I’ll speak with the parties, whatever happens. I want to know whether I can be active and productive, whether it’s on this team or a another one, because I don’t want to be here if I’m not.

If Abu Dhabi did turn out to be his final opportunity, Kubica claimed, he will embrace it.

I’m at ease, he declared. “At the end of the day, I have always been extremely practical. Let’s be real here. You shouldn’t be shocked if you can no longer drive at the age of 38. Too many ifs exist, so let’s wait and see before responding.

“I believe that my tale proved that you should never say never. To be quite honest, the fact that I occasionally have the opportunity to drive is the only thing keeping me alive. If I ever stop getting the chance to drive even one automobile, my life may be over.

Stake, the new Alfa Romeo sponsor, is a 2017 startup that already has partnerships with the UFC, Drake, the Everton football team, and Argentine footballer Sergio Aguero.

“We welcome Stake as a new co-title partner for the team in what symbolizes the beginning of a new era for us both,” said Sauber managing director and team spokesperson Alessandro Alunni Bravi.

“Over the past several years, F1 has witnessed a significant surge in interest, and the entry of companies like Stake is indicative of the enormous exposure that our sport can provide.

We are thrilled to be a part of this portfolio of sports and entertainment companies, and we anticipate the fan activation campaign that Stake will introduce.

Jeddah Will Host The Saudi Arabia F1 Event At Least Through 2027

Jeddah Will Host The Saudi Arabia F1 Event At Least Through 2027

January 20, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


The Jeddah Corniche Circuit, which was planned to be the grand prix’s temporary home until it moved to the newly constructed city of Qiddiya on the outskirts of Riyadh, staged Saudi Arabia’s inaugural F1 event in 2021.

However, with a lot of the temporary facilities at the track being converted to permanent ones, Jeddah is now anticipated to host the event for at least another four years while construction on the cutting-edge facility proceeds.

According to Martin Whitaker, CEO of the Saudi Motorsport Company, which organizes the race, “it’s important that we future proof the Jeddah track. For this reason, we have again been working with the FIA and Formula 1 to ensure that we have a circuit that will allow us to stage the sport in Jeddah while work begins on the track in Qiddiya.”

The Qiddiya Automotive Center is being developed to be the best Formula 1 circuit and entertainment venue in the world. Everyone will want to visit Qiddiya since it is a distinctive and fascinating undertaking.

However, Jeddah and the Red Sea shoreline in March will be in the spotlight right now and for the foreseeable future.

After agreeing to a date exchange with Australia, Saudi Arabia is expected to host the opening round of the 2024 Formula One season. This would avoid conflicting with the holy month of Ramadan, which runs from 10 March to 9 April.

Whitaker insisted that more discussions with F1 and the FIA were necessary to determine the precise grand prix scheduling and schedule.

Naturally, it would be difficult to conduct a Grand Prix during Ramadan due to its sacredness, although Formula 1 and the FIA ultimately have the last say in the date of the event the following year.

So, with reference to our 2024 date, we are awaiting information from the promoter and regulatory body. This won’t be disclosed until much later in the year, as usual.

Drivers and team managers held discussions into the early hours of Saturday about perhaps calling off the rest of the weekend, but safety precautions were put in place, and the weekend went on as planned.

Prior to the 2023 race, discussions between race organizers and drivers were held, and Whitaker stated that safety was still of “utmost concern to everyone who attends the race.”

It is our responsibility as a promoter to make sure that fans feel secure while they are in the city and at the track, he continued.

It has been a major goal in the year since the race in March to emphasize this message to the Formula 1 community.

Discussions with the drivers and team principals have been a top priority, and I’d like to believe that the clear messages we and the authorities have sent have given everyone travelling to Jeddah the assurance that Saudi, like so many other races on the F1 calendar, is completely safe and that the hospitality of the Saudi people is foremost in the minds of all visitors.

Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

Bottas Will Remain With Sauber Till The Advent Of Audi F1

November 7, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Audi formally announced its intention to team up with Sauber as its power unit manufacturer in 2026, when a new engine formula will go into effect, during the Belgian Grand Prix in August.

As Audi becomes a shareholder in the Swiss team, it is anticipated that its engagement would progressively increase once Alfa Romeo’s sponsorship agreement with the Hinwil team expires at the end of 2023.

Driving for an actual works team once more appeals to current Alfa Romeo driver Bottas, who joined the privateer after five years with Mercedes.

When asked in Mexico if he intended to remain with Sauber when Audi joined the team in 2026, Bottas responded: “why not I’m hoping to go because I’m 33 years old.” According to Bottas, the team’s motivation will be maintained in the upcoming seasons by Audi’s participation.

“Yes, I would say, as I believe it to be quite significant in the overall scheme of things. Sauber has a lot of potential with Audi.

“They certainly want to be successful in the future. They desire to do well and come out as earnest.

“Therefore, I believe that participating in that initiative would be quite intriguing for any driver on the grid, especially for me since I am currently a member of Sauber. I really believe that it is feasible.”

Bottas said Alfa Romeo requires “a lot of effort” to be competitive, but he believes more support from Audi before the team’s official 2026 entrance would enable it to catch up to the leaders.

“There is undoubtedly more work to be done. This is a fact. However, given that the necessary facilities are nearby, “The Finn made a mention.

“Some buildings and equipment are more comparable to championship-winning teams. And the team still has fewer members than, at the very least, what I observed last year.

But I don’t see why it couldn’t be done with the help of a company like Audi.

“I believe [the timetable] hinges on how much Audi will help this team before they formally enter as a manufacturer,” the author said.

Obviously, nothing will change in the upcoming year. Alfa Romeo is still our partner. Naturally, we also aspire to have a better vehicle next year than we had this one.

But beyond then, I believe it depends on the level of support after 2024.

If [Audi] are eager to help, if they’re genuinely making a big effort to help, and if the power unit is excellent for 2026, which is now hard to forecast, then why not.

Hamilton Could Have Piercings, But Mercedes Will Pay A $24,500 Fine

Hamilton Could Have Piercings, But Mercedes Will Pay A $24,500 Fine

October 3, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Lewis Hamilton will be permitted to continue wearing his nose stud at the Singapore Grand Prix due to medical need, but his team was fined $24,500 on Sunday for failing to alert the stewards.

The governing body of Formula One, the FIA, imposed the fine after Mercedes submitted a self-scrutineering form claiming that the British driver had adhered to rules by taking out all jewelry and body piercings.

“In recent times, Hamilton had the piercing removed before the match. Without asking Hamilton, the team thought he had already followed or would follow the same process for this event “the FIA stewards concluded in their decision.

“The stewards agree that the declaration’s mistake in this instance was not made on purpose or deliberately. In light of these facts, we impose a 25,000 euro punishment on the squad.”

According to seven-time world champion Hamilton, who removed the stud because to an infection, he was advised to do so by medical professionals.

Hamilton remarked, “I’ve worn my jewelry and nose stud for years and obviously there was all that hubbub at the beginning of the year.

It wasn’t able to come loose because it was soldered in at the time. They granted me an exemption for many races so I could come up with a solution, stated Hamilton.

I tried inserting and removing it. Because of that, it became infected. My nose was pretty uncomfortable, and I developed a blood blister. I told them all of this before I was qualified.

The physicians asked me to keep it in after I put it back in because it had begun to mend during the previous two weeks.

After qualifying third-fastest for Sunday’s race at the Marina Bay circuit, Hamilton was asked to go to the stewards’ room.

The stewards issued a statement stating that “broadcast footage revealed Hamilton wearing an item of jewellery in the form of a body piercing (nose stud) throughout the session.”

The team presented records from a medical professional that supported Hamilton’s statement. Hamilton “said that he had been instructed by his physicians not to remove it for the time being.

We decided to stop taking action in light of the mitigating circumstances.

Despite the regulation prohibiting drivers from wearing jewelry existing for decades, Hamilton claimed it was “all a little ludicrous” that it became a problem this season.

He replied, “One of the finest defences I ever heard was about heat and how metal transfers heat in a fire.

Hamilton said, “But our zip is metal, our helmet buckle is metal, and we have cables with aluminum metal in them.

“It’s absurd that we have to discuss something so trivial. Everything is a bit goofy. I’m hoping they’ll be reasonable.

The stewards’ first responsibility should be to keep us safe. However, this is not a safety concern.

F1: Zhou Guanyu Will Continue At Alfa Romeo Till 2023

F1: Zhou Guanyu Will Continue At Alfa Romeo Till 2023

September 28, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Alfa Romeo has given Zhou Guanyu a new contract, keeping the first full-time F1 driver from China with the club through 2023 together with Valtteri Bottas.

The 23-year-old made a strong start by earning a point in his race debut in Bahrain. He then backed it up with two further point finishes at the Italian Grand Prix and in Canada.

His “passion and attitude,” according to Alfa Romeo, have pleased them, and he has shown “levels of maturity and runecraft that belie his youthful age.”

Alfa Romeo chose to extend Zhou’s contract for a second season in part because of the close bond he has developed with teammate Bottas, who is signed for several seasons.

Before this weekend’s Singapore Grand Prix, Alfa Romeo CEO Fred Vasseur remarked, “I am looking forward to continuing working with Zhou.”

“He has impressed me with his approach to work, which is usually a very good attribute, ever from his first day with the squad, in the Abu Dhabi test last year. We were aware of his speed, but one of our season’s biggest shocks has been how quickly he learned how to adjust to Formula 1.

Everyone on the team like both his personality and attitude since he is such a great person. He has the wisdom to use all the knowledge he has acquired to get better race each race, as well as the humility to learn from the engineers and Valtteri.

“He will be able to rely on this experience next season, and I am confident he can make another progress as we continue to build our squad.”

“I am pleased and appreciative to Alfa Romeo F1 Team for the opportunity to remain a member of the team for another season,” Zhou continued.

The team has been wonderfully helpful, embracing me from day one and assisting me in adjusting to the most challenging series in motorsport. “Making it to Formula 1 was a dream come true and the thrill of participating for the first time in a race will be with me forever,” the driver said.

“There are still things I want to accomplish in this sport and with the team, and the diligent effort we have been putting in since the beginning of the year is only the first step toward where we want to be next season.

There is still much to learn and grow in, but I am confident in our work and eagerly awaiting the next chapter of our tale.

Bottas has 46 points so far this season compared to Zhou’s six, but it’s believed internally that Zhou’s total would be significantly higher if it weren’t for a string of technical issues.

F1: Following Appendix Surgery, Albon Required Ventilator Care

F1: Following Appendix Surgery, Albon Required Ventilator Care

September 15, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Team’s statement on Formula One According to Williams, respiratory failure was caused by anesthetic problems.

LONDON: Following complications from surgery on his appendix, Alex Albon, a Formula One driver for Williams, experienced “respiratory failure” and was put on a ventilator.

On Saturday morning, appendicitis caused Albon, 26, to be disqualified from the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. He was then taken to the adjacent San Gerardo Hospital for treatment.

The Thai driver underwent surgery, but thereafter he needed help breathing and was sent to intensive care.

Albon was “taken from mechanical ventilation” on Sunday, according to Williams, and is anticipated to stay in the hospital on Monday.

According to a statement from the British team, Alex experienced unanticipated post-operative anaesthesia problems after surgery, which caused respiratory failure, a known but rare condition. He underwent a second intubation and was then sent to critical care for assistance.

He made tremendous improvement over night, and yesterday morning he was able to be taken off of artificial ventilation. He has since been moved to a normal ward, and he will likely go home tomorrow.

Due to his mother Kankamol’s Thai citizenship, London-born Albon participated in practise on Friday in Monza.

However, he became ill early on Saturday and was replaced by the team’s backup driver Nyck de Vries, who placed ninth and earned points in his Formula One debut.

After being released by Red Bull, Albon spent the previous season on the sidelines.

But since moving to Williams, he has consistently excelled, earning his first point for the British team in the Australian Grand Prix in April and going on to finish in the top 10 twice more, in Miami and Belgium.

The FIA Explains Why Hamilton Wasn’t Fined For The F1 Collision With Alonso

The FIA Explains Why Hamilton Wasn’t Fined For The F1 Collision With Alonso

August 29, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


During the opening lap of the Spa-Franco champs race, Alonso and his Mercedes adversary collided at Les Combes as they competed for second place.

Up the Kemmel Straight, Hamilton had an advantage over Alonso and drove to the outside in an effort to slingshot past him.

Alonso had nowhere to go as Hamilton closed the door on him on the entry to the first right-hander at Les Combes, and the two collided as the Mercedes was flung into the air.

Alonso was allowed to continue, but Hamilton was instructed to stop later on the lap due to damage to his car and what seemed to be a water leak.

Alonso expressed his displeasure with Hamilton’s driving on the team radio, criticizing his lack of attention to detail when competing against other cars.

Alonso said, “What a moron shutting the door from the outside. We were off to a great start, but this person can only drive and put the car in first.

Although the FIA stewards looked into the event, they came to the conclusion that neither driver was at fault since it was just a usual type of mishap that may occur on the first lap as vehicles battle for position.

The FIA stated in a statement: “The Stewards evaluated the video footage and found that Alonso was inside at turn 5.

“Alonso’s front wheels were in front of Hamilton’s at the turn entry. With both of his right side tyres firmly on the curb and even partially inside the curb, Alonso shifted his vehicle into the inside lane.

“Alonso never gave the impression of losing control or understeering. Alonso remained next to Hamilton as he headed into the corner’s apex, which is when the crash happened.

The Stewards determined that there was a first-lap incident with significant movement in relation to other vehicles in the opening turns and decided not to take further punishment.

Audi Will Debut In Formula 1 Year 2026

Audi Will Debut In Formula 1 Year 2026

August 26, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


The German manufacturer has long been associated with a transfer to Formula One and has sometimes expressed interest in talks of technical regulations, but it has never committed to an entry or program.

That has altered as a result of the engine regulation modifications that will take effect in 2026 and the increase in F1’s worldwide appeal.

Since F1 courted the Volkswagen Group for some months, the move by Audi has been anticipated.

F1 programmers from both Audi and sister brand Porsche have been in the works since late last year, and Herbert Diess, the departing CEO of the VW Group, effectively confirmed them in May.

Audi intended to construct its own engine and field its own squad, while Porsche was said to be working with Red Bull. This has been known for a number of months.
However, both companies had previously stated that neither project would receive the official go-ahead until the 2026 engine regulations were established, which took place earlier in August.

While cost-cutting measures are put in place, the current manufacturers have decided to remove the complicated MGU-H from the V6 turbo-hybrids.



New manufacturers, like Audi, will initially be given more dyno time and expenditure allowances.

On Friday morning, Audi posted a teaser image, promising that “more rings are coming” with a cropped image of an F1 car.

It’s unknown if an engine programme will be revealed separately or together with the team’s plans being confirmed.

Audi is anticipated to have acquired or will acquire a majority investment in Sauber, with minority ownership remaining with existing owner Finn Rausing.

With this, Audi will officially take over management of the Alfa Romeo-sponsored team, which will continue to use Ferrari engines until 2026, when it will formally become the first fully Audi-powered entry.

Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 Career Is Forever Altered By McLaren’s Choice

Daniel Ricciardo’s F1 Career Is Forever Altered By McLaren’s Choice

August 6, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Motorsport claims that McLaren has chosen to terminate Ricciardo’s contract early.

Oscar Piastri will replace Daniel Ricciardo at McLaren a year early, according speculations covered by Motorsport. The British team is said to have officially informed the Australian driver of its plan to terminate Ricciardo’s contract early.

Contrary to what Alpine reports, Piastri would join McLaren as a reserve driver in 2023. However, the Woking team would be prepared to elevate him straight away if a termination deal could be achieved with Ricciardo.

The Australian, who like with Lando Norris struggled to shine at McLaren, will aim to negotiate a sizable severance compensation. His objective is to continue competing in Formula One the next season, most likely at Alpine himself to fill Fernando Alonso’s vacant seat or at Haas.

To create room for Piastri, McLaren plans to cancel Ricciardo’s 2023 Formula One contract.
According to Motorsport.com, the McLaren Formula 1 team has formally informed Daniel Ricciardo that Oscar Piastri will take his spot in the lineup for the upcoming season.

If a plan for Ricciardo’s early retirement is ultimately decided, McLaren is thought to have first signed Piastri on a reserve driver agreement for 2023, one that it hopes to upgrade to a racing seat.

As part of the initial three-year contract that he signed in early 2020, while still at Renault, Ricciardo has a fixed contract with McLaren for the next season.

In order for Ricciardo to leave the team at the conclusion of this season, he and the organisation will now need to reach an agreement on a settlement containing a hefty pay-off.

He is believed to be determined to find another seat in Formula One and has no interest in going sideways into the team’s Formula E program.

However, when McLaren expressed interest and it became clear that Piastri may be a free agent in 2023 after all, discussions stepped up and the Working team was viewed as an improvement over Williams.

Meanwhile, Ricciardo is undoubtedly towards the top of the list of potential Fernando Alonso replacements at Alpine, despite the fact that his decision to leave Renault for McLaren angered the company’s top management.

Although Ferrari technically has a claim on anyone fills the seat, Haas might potentially be a viable choice if Mick Schumacher decides to go as anticipated.

Sometimes the driver in question obtaining a seat elsewhere might have an influence on pay-off agreements like the one Ricciardo is expected to earn. Kimi Raikkonen spent two years away from Formula One after Ferrari fired him at the end of 2009, in part so he could keep the entire sum.

However, it is acknowledged that, given the funds necessary to fulfil Ricciardo’s initial contract, it is possible that, even if he secures a drive elsewhere, McLaren will continue to pay him to not compete for the team in 2023.

F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

F1 Will Not Replace Russian GP As 2022 Calendar Stays At 22 Races

The decision leaves a two-weekend gap between the finish of the European season on September 11 in Monza and the start of the six-race flyaway series in Singapore on October 2.

Shortly after the Russian invasion on Ukraine began, the Sochi event was cancelled, along with the event’s ongoing contract.

F1 quickly began exploring for alternate locations in order to retain the overall number of races this year at 23.

Qatar was an early candidate. Last year, the country staged a race at the Doha circuit, and it will do so again in 2023. Due to its commitment to the FIFA World Cup, it had intended to skip this year.

The September date was deemed to be early enough to avoid clashing with football tournament preparations, but there were worries about the high heat and its possible influence on the turnout.

The notion of a second race in Singapore a week before the conventional grand prix and perhaps at a different time of day arose throughout the Melbourne weekend.

However, logistical concerns prevented F1 from transferring directly from a European site to Singapore.

The money was crucial to any arrangement. F1 is in a totally different scenario than it was two years ago, when certain venues offered low-cost or even no-cost solutions to keep the number of races up.

A new race would have had to make financial sense for both the teams and F1 itself, given global inflation and substantial increases in freight costs.

The confirmation will be welcomed by the teams, who are facing the difficulty of staying under budget while constructing fresh new vehicles in the midst of an already tight timetable.
