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

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.

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.

Alex Albon Is Back Joins Williams For 2022 F1 Season

September 10, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News F1

Alex Albon Returns to Formula 1 2022 Season With Williams F1

After completing an agreement to race with Williams in 2022, Alex Albon will return to the Formula One grid, while Nicholas Latifi will return for a third season with the British team.

After losing his race seat to Sergio Perez, Albon has served as a reserve and test driver for Red Bull this season. However, as it became evident that a seat with the works team or AlphaTauri was not viable, the two-time podium finisher has been lobbying for a racing return outside the Red Bull family for several months.

Meanwhile, Latifi has improved his game this year, and Williams was delighted with his development and improved performance in comparison to outgoing teammate George Russell, so they were eager to keep him on.

“Alex is one of the most promising young talents in motorsport, and he has extensive F1 knowledge thanks to his stint at Red Bull. His repeated podium finishes attest to his speed as a driver, and we’re confident he’ll fit right in with the Grove team. Nicholas, on the other hand, has continually impressed us with his hard work, diligence, and good attitude throughout the last three years. As evidenced by his points scoring finishes this season, he has continued to develop during his time at Williams and has matured into an excellent F1 driver.

Its been Difficult to get back into the form when you take a year out of f1 and totally out of the practice and speed. As we see that the George Russell believe back in the 2020 that Alex Albon will be back and they all three reunite all together and Because of F1’s new technical requirements, as well as the team’s new owners, management, and technical personnel, the team is going in a more competitive path.

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

George Russell Joins Mercedes F1 From 2022

September 7, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News F1

George Russell has been announced as Lewis Hamilton’s 2022 teammate after signing a long-term contract with Mercedes. Russell, 23, has been a Mercedes junior driver since 2017 and gets his opportunity after three seasons in Formula One with Williams.

Russell stated, “It’s a momentous day for me personally and professionally, but it’s also a day of mixed feelings.” “I’m both delighted and honored to be joining Mercedes next year, which is a major professional step for me, but it also means saying goodbye to my Williams teammates and friends. It’s been a privilege to work with each and every member of the team, as well as to represent the Williams name in Formula One.

“I’d be lying if I claimed I wasn’t ecstatic about the prospect of next season. It’s a tremendous chance that I want to seize with both hands. But I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.

Valtteri has established a high bar for himself, regularly producing victories, pole positions, and contributing to many championship triumphs. My goal must be to repay Toto [Wolff, Squad Principal], the team, and the board’s faith in me by ensuring that I contribute to the team’s continued success, and I want to make my new teammates proud.

Russell, who also paid respect to Williams, said, “It’s a big chance that I want to seize with both hands.” “However, I have no illusions about the magnitude of the task; it will be a steep learning curve.”

Mercedes evaluated the known quantity of Bottas – who has battled but failed to defeat seven-time champion Hamilton over the course of a season – against their emerging F1 prodigy, Russell.

In the end, they chose the man who, in addition to blazing down the grid at Williams, excelled in his one-off outing in the Mercedes last December in Bahrain when standing in for Hamilton.

Pieree Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda have been confirmed as Alpha Tauri drivers for the 2022 Formula One season

September 7, 2021 / By Zunair Tahir / News F1

Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda have been announced as AlphaTauri’s drivers for the 2022 Formula One season. The two drivers have been honoured for their contributions and excellent achievements thus far in the 2021 season. Tsunoda joins Gasly at the club for the 2021 season.

For the 2021 season, Tsunoda has joined Gasly’s team. Despite his inconsistent performance, the team decided to extend his contract.

Gasly finished third in this year’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix, started and finished fourth over the weekend at Zandvoort, and is now ninth in the Drivers’ standings.

Tsunoda, on the other hand, came into Formula One with a great reputation but has failed to live up to it so far, with a succession of crashes and failures to make it to the second half of qualifying sessions stalling his development.
He has, however, scored 18 points and has been granted a second opportunity in 2022 to return Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko’s trust in him.

The 21-year-old remarked, “I’m extremely happy to be continuing with Scuderia AlphaTauri for a second season.”

“It’s a great opportunity, and I’m grateful to the team and Dr. Marko for allowing me to expand my Formula 1 expertise.

“I have a wonderful connection with Pierre; I’ve already learnt a lot from him this year, and his expertise has allowed me to continue to develop my own talents, so it’s fantastic to be continuing my F1 adventure with him.

“Having recently relocated to Faenza, I am settling in well with the club and am excited for the next season.”
