Biggest F1 news of year: 2 new teams accepted to join 2015 or 2016!

We could have full grid of 13 teams first time for twenty years. More the merrier!

One entry is headed by Gene Haas from NASCAR, other by former Midland/Spyker/HRT boss Colin Kolles.

End of an era at Ferrari: Domenicali quits. Even with the current minor disaster, it's quite a shock that team boss (since 2008) leaves mid-season.

Re: F1 2014


Before the season started there was lot of talk about sparks between teammates... in Ferrari. Now it's happening in almost every team but Ferrari. Hamilton and Rosberg are driving for championship, understandable competition. But some others - Massa and Vettel - are refusing team orders to let teammate pass when they are holding them back. Vettel does have a sort of track record on that; and Massa may just be a bit tired of hearing "...is faster than you".
But the thing is, we've seen so far almost more racing between teammates than other cars. McLaren and Force India too. Only Ferraris haven't done much in-team competing due Kimi's so far weak (and bit unlucky) season start.

Notable thing about Monaco GP: Marussia - founded 2010 as Virgin - finally got their first ever points with Bianchi's 9th place.

Their competitor Caterham just missed it, with 11th and 13th places.


Also, this was first time for at least twenty years that Finland loses to Sweden in F1.

Now it seems the Haas team will enter 2016.

The Kolles project - now called Forza Rossa - may be ready to enter 2015. Romania, native country of Kolles, is involved in the team.

I've read through all of that and it went waaaay over my head. I really do not know anything at all about F1 racing.

I know far too much

Though only yesterday I found out Colin Kolles was born in Romania and used to be dentist.

Re: F1 2014


As I said couple posts above, he's been manager of number of small teams and is now trying to start a new one.

Maybe about 50th most important person involved with F1 right now, everyone should know him!
