Caterham is up for sale so I wouldn't count on them being around by the time Haas gets his team up and running.

I knew Ferrari were brutal but wow. Who would they take instead, Hulk?

They've had some substantial upgrades over the past two weeks, their times in practice showing that.

Newey extends Red Bull contract, but steps away from F1 team

 

Adrian Newey has signed a new contract with Red Bull, but he will step away from his day-to-day involvement with the Formula 1 team to work on other projects.

 

Newey's future has been the subject of intense speculation over recent weeks, after Ferrari sounded him out about a future deal.

 

But with Newey eager to remain at Red Bull, he has now committed to a fresh multi-year contract that will keep him involved with the energy drinks company.

However, his responsibilities will change, and he will become an advisor and mentor to the F1 outfit rather than be totally focused on it.

 

A clarification on what Newey will focus on will be announced later this year.

 

Team principal Christian Horner said ahead of the Canadian Grand Prix that he was delighted his company was keeping hold of Newey.

 

"It is great that we have come to an agreement that will continue to advise and mentor the team going forward," he said. "There are some exciting new projects that will be announced in due course.

 

"He is still very much involved [with the F1 team]. We will have a further clarification later in the summer."

 

After helping turn Red Bull into a multiple title-winning team, Newey is known to have grown frustrated by the way that F1's ever-tighter regulations have limited his creativity.

 

Horner added: "I think Adrian has reached a stage where he is keen to take on some additional challenges as well. It is great news for the team and Red Bull that we have a multi-year agreement and it is exciting also for Adrian.

 

"He has always enjoyed the environment of Red Bull and he enjoys working with the people, so it was a pretty straightforward discussion in the end."

 

No blow to team

 

Although Newey's future move away from his F1 role could be viewed as a blow to the team, Horner is adamant that the outfit will not suffer.

 

"We have tremendous strength in depth and it is not like he will not be about any more," he said.

 

"It is great for the team and for Red Bull and exciting for Adrian as well.

 

"You only have to look at him to see if he is fully committed or not. We are working very hard to close the gap down to Mercedes as that his priority."

If this is the case, the Williams are going to mince Vettel almost immediately, and then we could see a Bottas podium! :D

Indeed, he was one of the few who gained after Massa and Perez crashed out. Magnussen finished in the points too, so good day for McLaren.

The race only got interesting because of the merc problems, otherwise it would have been a boat race.

Ferrari should show up to the next race on bicycles and they would probably go faster.

      AWS and Formula 1 announce six new racing performance stats
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Formula 1 With less than two weeks to go for the resumption of the 2020 season, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Formula 1 have announced six new performance statistics that will help fans analyze the flood of real-time data during races. This will help them gauge the performance of the cars on track and predict race outcomes. These statistics will use a variety of AWS offerings, including Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon SageMaker.

      To start off, on July 3-5, at the RedBull Ring in Austria, the debutant 'Car Performance Scores' will display an individual car’s performance using four metrics: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line, and Car Handling⁠. These are vital indicators of a car's race performance and will allow fans to compare different F1 cars on the track.

      The Car Performance Score stats are in addition to the five other metrics that will debut this season. Complete details on those are as follows:

      Vis-à-vis the initiative, Rob Smedley, the Chief Engineer of Formula 1, stated that “We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.” While Mike Clayville, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS remarked that “This year, we’re thrilled to extend the power of F1 data in the cloud and unlock new insights that help fans understand more of F1’s rich complexity.”
