A new color for Ferrari from Barcelona?

Don’t worry, the F1-75 will of course still be red! However, our Italian colleagues report that the Scuderia can tweak the color a bit again – to save weight.

Because Ferrari is still overweight. The new color is said to save up to 700 grams. Incidentally, Ferrari is said to actually have the lightest color in the entire field.

However, as part of Barcelona’s modernization, one would like to push a little more…

Andretti: Why even 200 million don’t convince others

The math is actually simple: if a new team wants to enter Formula 1, they first have to put $200 million on the table. Andretti is willing to do so – but he still faces fierce resistance.

What’s wrong with you? Why are so many teams reluctant to have an eleventh racing team in the first division? Our analysis is here!

Alonso penalty: Alps want to rethink

We reported yesterday that Albin is not happy with anything but Alonso’s penalty in Miami. Team principal Otmar Szafnauer confirms: “It often happens that drivers make a mistake in a Chicane.”

In Monaco, for example, this is regularly the case. “They don’t do it on purpose. You just push hard. It’s the end of the race when the tires and brakes wear out,” he explains.

“Even a two-time world champion like Fernando can make a mistake,” said Szafnauer. Then the Spaniard gave back the time he had gained – and is still being punished.

“I think this is wrong,” he explains. They want to discuss the matter in Barcelona with the FIA.

False rumors about Latifi

Canadian journalist Norris MacDonald reported on Twitter yesterday that Latifi was expelled from Williams Airport. He wrote that his replacement was already fixed with Nyck DeVries – only to come back again shortly thereafter.

“Correction: Nick Latifi will continue as a Williams driver for the foreseeable future,” he reported shortly thereafter. He also apologized to his compatriot for the false report.

In fact, according to our information, Latifi will continue to sit in the cockpit for the time being. However, there are increasing signs that 2023 could be tight for him three years after Williams.

In a race duel against his new teammate Albon, she is currently 0:5 in his view.

32 years ago today…

…Riccardo Patrice won the 1990 San Marino Prix in Imola. The special thing about it: It was Patrice’s first win since the 1983 South African Grand Prix! With a waiting period of over six years, he easily made it to P1 in our photo series:

Speaking of Russell…

Besides world championship leader Leclerc, the Briton is the only driver this year to have completed 285 laps in the previous five races. He is also the only driver to finish all races in the top five.

In teams, Mercedes is still ahead with 569 out of a possible 570 laps. There is only one lap missing from Hamilton at Imola, as he got stuck in the back of the field and rolled.

Speaking of Ferraris…

Also information from our Italian colleagues: Today Ferrari is organizing a so-called Film Day in Monza. Leclerc is set to hit the track in F1-75 between 9:00am and 1:00pm.

Ferrari’s biggest building site at the moment is Top Speed. This should be improved with the Barcelona update. Maybe you want to use Movie Day to gather some data here.

However, the possibilities on such a day are manageable: only 100 kilometers are allowed on the special Pirelli test tyres.
