    Mass has kerb named after him

    Sports News Now ›

    Felipe Massa’s chances of retaining his driving seat for next year are rather flourishing now with his recent string of good results. But earlier in the season, Ferrari boss Montezemolo admitted that he wanted a fresh face with good talent and experience underneath, and even recently quipped that he would sit down with Massa for a lengthy talk. However, whatever happens next year, he will race for Ferrari in the forthcoming Indian GP, where he will ride a kerb he might have trouble forgetting.
    It is called the ‘Massa Kerb’, and no, I’m not kidding. As reported by the Times of India, the kerb has been named after Felipe Massa, and it’s easy to see why, as he crashed there twice in the inaugural race last season. To be honest, in that race, Hamilton and Massa’s battle was the only exciting bit to watch, even though the circuit had all the ingredients to pull out a fight-to-finish race.
    Last year, Felipe Massa called for changes to the BIC after he crashed out in qualifying. On the final run in q3 he pushed his car to the limit and went on the wrong side into Turn 8, with the car landing so hard so that its front suspension broke. He reckoned that the kerb was too high, as the approach to Turn 8 was at around 215 kph.
    The BIC authorities claim that in order to host the SBK next year and the MotoGP in the future, the kerbs are placed 25mm higher to meet the regulations, but as per the FIA, the kerbs can be up to 2 inches higher. To prevent drivers from kicking dust onto the track, grassy areas are added as well.
    The ‘Massa kerb’ is on the right-hand apex of the fast-flowing Turn 8 chicane. The driver said that the ‘Himalayan kerb and ended his qualifying ambitions as a whole with front suspension damage and sailed through the gravel while Alonso found his way to start from third on the grid. The race Sunday saw Massa’s hopes shattering as he broke the left-front suspension on the same chicane but the exit of it.
    As for the upcoming race, the kerbs of turns 6, 7, 8 and 9 have been extended from five to 15 meters in width to stop drivers from riding too much of the apexes. The speeds taken through that sequence is crucial as Turn 10 is winding, and getting a good exit proves to be vital for a timed lap.

    Formula 1 race in N.J. stalls out, now on track for 2014 | NJ.com

    In the stop-and-start saga of the Grand Prix of America, it now appears Formula 1 race cars will not be roaring through the streets of Weehawken and West New York after all, at least not in 2013.
    An official announcement is expected today, but sources told The Star Ledger Thursday the race, tentatively scheduled for June, has been postponed because local organizers haven’t raised enough sponsorship money and are behind in obtaining permits needed to alter local streets that will make up the 3.2-mile race course.
    "Some of it is construction issues," said one source who asked not to be named because he was not at liberty to discuss the matter publicly. The sponsors are still hoping to stage the event sometime in 2014, the source said.

    Haha, yeah. That's like a wet dream. The noises coming from the two cars from the 60s and 70s nearly made me wet myself.

    This was bound to happen after last weekend. I wonder how much they have to bleep out of the radio transmissions during the race.

    Drivers warned against swearing | Planet F1 | Formula One News

    Formula One drivers have been told to mind their language when giving interviews after Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel swore on the Abu Dhabi podium.
    In a bid to bring F1 closer to the public, the top three finishers in the grand prix are now interviewed on the podium in the immediate aftermath.
    However, this move resulted in several complaints from the public after both Raikkonen and Vettel, who had finished first and third at the Yas Marina circuit, used strong expletives.
    The FIA's director of communications Norman Howell subsequently wrote to the teams, warning them against swearing in interviews.
    The letter stated that it is "very much our collective responsibility to make sure drivers are aware such language has no place during media events" and that such language "shines an unwelcome beam of adverse publicity on their teams and sponsors, the sport and FIA."
    It added that the FIA understands that "in the 'heat of battle', adrenaline, elation and disappointment make for a dangerous and heady mix.
    "But F1 drivers are not the only ones being interviewed in such conditions: I think of boxers, rugby and football players who are routinely interviewed live on television after a gruelling sporting effort. They manage to avoid inappropriate language."
    Speaking to the BBC, Howell said the letter had been received "positively" by the teams.
    He added that the FIA felt it was necessary as there had been "quite a few complaints, from members of the public, people within the FIA, even from the media."
    "Since it happened twice on the same weekend, I thought I'd send a friendly note.
    "We need to remind the drivers they are professionals. If you're a racing driver at that level you have to realise that part of your job description is to talk to the media, and to do so in a way that is acceptable."

    Gone are the days of swearing and fist fights. It really is a shame. They've ruined the sport.
