    Giovanazzi is also confirmed for Alfa, which means Hulkenberg is close to exit F1.

    Latifi has been signed for Williams. I personally don’t like the idea. The young F2 driver has not made so much headlines, but looking at his pedigree in terms of sponsors he brings to the team, reminds me that Williams at the present moment is just trying to stay afloat.

    Hulkenberg made a bit more sense....

    Let's kick off the 2020 thread with some rather explosive news: https://www.planetf1.com/news/could-...s-aston-martin



    "Could Racing Point rebrand as Aston Martin?


    Racing Point owner Lawrence Stroll is reported to be interested in buying a major stake in Aston Martin, according to Autocar and RaceFans.net.


    Stroll, who has an estimated worth of over £2 billion through investments and fashion brands, initially came to the rescue for the team formerly known as Force India in August 2018. The Canadian billionaire was at the forefront of a consortium that bought the team which had been forced into administration.


    Autocar and RaceFans.net are now reporting that Stroll is ready to make more business moves, heading up another consortium in order to buy a major stake in Aston Martin, taking advantage of its drop in share price.


    Since Aston Martin began to float on the stock market in 2o18, its share price has dropped from around £19 to £5 and the company itself reported a £80million lost in the first half of 2019.


    Although Lawrence Stroll and Aston Martin have both refused to comment on the reports, it is thought that Stroll would be keen on reintroducing the familiar Aston Martin green colour back to Formula 1 and rebranding the current Racing Point team.


    Aston Martin, of course, currently have very strong ties to Red Bull through their title sponsorship. The last time Aston Martin was a Formula 1 team in their own right was between 1959 and 1960."

    Vietnam Grand Prix organisers have added an extra corner to their new Formula 1 circuit design in a bid to further improve safety, as work pushes on at the venue ahead of its first race next year.

    The tweak – in the final section of the Hanoi city track – will lift the total number of corners to 23 and increases the track length from the original 5.565km length to 5.607km.

    Good news for fans: https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/g...sting/4606965/

    "Formula 1 teams will not be allowed to hide their cars from fans and rival teams during winter testing, following a rule change agreed by the FIA.Although F1’s regulations force teams to keep cars on display at grand prix weekends, there have previously been no such restrictions in testing.


    That means teams, eager to keep their tech developments secret from rivals, have put covers on car parts or kept them completely hidden behind screens during the pre-season build-up.


    But at a meeting of the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council, it was agreed that a rule change be introduced that prevents teams from hiding their cars.


    A statement from the governing body said that the FIA had approved: “Wording to prevent teams from covering their cars during winter testing, in order to make these events more appealing to the media and fans.”


    Other changes approved by the FIA including rules regarding the sampling and testing of fuel at events to ensure they comply with reference declarations.


    The FIA has also confirmed the appointment of three standard suppliers from 2021. BBS will provide wheel rims, Magneti Marelli will deliver fuel primer pumps and Bosch will supply the high pressure fuel pump and piping.


    The new rules mean that the same restrictions team have at F1 events will be in place during the time of track running at the tests.


    The rules state that: “no screen, cover or other obstruction which in any way obscures any part of a car will be allowed at any time in the paddock, garages, pit lane or grid, unless it is clear any such covers are needed solely for mechanical reasons.”


    There are also specific bans on:


    * Engine, gearbox or radiator covers whilst engines are being changed or moved around the garage.


    * Covers over spare wings when they are on a stand in the pit lane not being used.


    * Parts such as (but not limited to) spare floors, fuel rigs or tool trolleys may not be used as an obstruction.


    Some covers are allowed including transparent tool trays, rear wing covers to protect mechanics firing up the car, tyre blankets and covers when it is raining."

    From https://f1i.com/news/363849-zandvoor...c-support.html

    "Zandvoort's couple of banked corners which the Dutch circuit has designed for F1's return in 2020 were imagined with the enthusiastic support of the late Charlie Whiting.


    Dutch Grand Prix organisers are in the process of upgrading Zandvoort's historic track ahead of next year's big event.


    While most of the work involves infrastructure changes to accommodate F1, a few tweaks to the circuit itself will include a reprofiling of the Turn 4 Hugenholtzbocht and the final right hand Arie Luyendijkbocht, named after Holland's double Indy 500 winner.


    Both corners will feature an 18-degree incline - a slope steeper than at the Indianapolis Speedway - that will no doubt get F1drivers' attention.


    Dutch GP head of operations Erik Weijers revealed that FIA race director Charlie Whiting, who passed away in Melbourne at the start of the F1 season, had been instrumental in pushing the banking idea through."

    Analysis: What a Racing Point-Aston Martin deal would mean for them, F1 – and Red Bull: https://www.racefans.net/2019/12/06/...-and-red-bull/

    ... Our source stated that one of the primary reasons for the prospective deal is that Stroll’s Racing Point F1 Team needs an “authentic wrapping for his team”. Their Silverstone-based operation has several connections to Mercedes’s F1 team, which is situated in 10 miles up the road in Brackley. Racing Points uses Mercedes powertrains and has a wind tunnel share arrangement with the silver team,
    Plans are afoot to expand Racing Point’s facility via a recently acquired 30-hectare ‘green’ site, which dovetails nearly with both Aston Martin, which is based in Gaydon (30 miles away) and last year opened a new vehicle dynamics engineering centre at Silverstone.


    The 2021 technical regulations encourage further parts and facilities sharing amongst teams and thus Racing Point could morph into a British racing green Aston Martin Racing team, authentically operating as a second-tier Mercedes squad directly linked to a performance car brand. There’s authentic “wrapping” for you…


    Should the deal come to pass, the potential implications for Red Bull Racing are profound. Their Aston Martin title sponsorship deal is said to be worth $10m annually, yet provides the team with a performance car link. The two entities are almost four years into a technology partnership, with the first models of the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar – designed by Adrian Newey, and intended to compete at Le Mans – about to be delivered.


    Stroll is believed to number amongst the 150 Valkyrie customers. And, of course, has the wherewithal to enter Le Mans in addition to F1.


    ‘Son of Valkyrie’, the partnership’s second model – and as the name implies, a smaller and more user friendly hypercar powered by a petrol-electric hybrid drive system – is due for launch in 2021, although insiders recently confided that development has slowed due to Aston Martin’s travails.

    Coupled with Honda’s uncertain future, the potential loss of Aston Martin as both a technology partner and title partner – the commercial deal is said to expire at the end of the 2020 F1 season, albeit with options – could well pre-empt the drinks company’s exit from the sport ahead of its ‘new era’ in 2021.


    A buy-in to Aston Martin by Stroll and his associates makes enormous sense, for Aston Martin is in desperate need of a cash injection and a total brand refresh – both of which Stroll is able to deliver immediately – while the race team, currently competing under a ‘holding name’ – requires authentic wrapping, with dark green being the likely colour.


    Will the deal come to pass? Don’t bet against it, although Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz will surely hope that it does not.
