    No they are just dumbing the coverage down for Americans. The racing is very exciting.

    I wish Shumi hadn't shunted so he could have screwed with Vettel more. It is awesome that he got Vettel to go off first though.

    Vettel says RBR has a "master plan". I hope it doesn't involve camps.

    As if McLaren have never developed a car before...

    Ecclestone estimates Formula One IPO at $10B, hires Goldman Sachs to investigate

    F1 may be headed toward an initial public offering worth a staggering $10 billion, according to Bloomberg. CVC Capital Partners Ltd., the majority owner of the Formula One Group, has hired Godlman Sachs Group to look into the motorsports empire's value. The deal would involve selling a portion of CVC's 63.4 percent stake in F1, likely with an IPO in Singapore. The news comes courtesy of an unnamed source familiar with the discussions.

    Meanwhile, F1 Supremo Bernie Ecclestone has said that he will remain in his position regardless of CVC's course of action. He is not expected to sell his 5.3-percent stake in the Formula One Group. The CEO is reportedly in talks with current F1 teams over contracts that expire this year, offering big names like Ferrari and Red Bull up to $45 million to stay on. Currently, it's unclear whether any teams have agreed to the new terms, but Ecclestone says those talks won't need to be concluded for the IPO to progress.

    FIA rejects claims that Mercedes's rear wing is illegal

    Lotus and Red Bull Racing's complaints that the DRS-activated F-duct on the Mercedes rear wing is illegal have been rejected by the FIA, AUTOSPORT has learned.

    The two outfits wanted clarification on the matter ahead of this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix, with both teams reckoning the duct that helps stall the Mercedes wings for a straight-line speed boost is a breach of the rules that prevents driver activated aerodynamic devices.

    Perez plays down Ferrari link

    Sergio Perez insists he is fully focused on his role with Sauber and has played down talk that he could be lined up a replacement for Felipe Massa at Ferrari.

    The Mexican is part of the Ferrari Young Driver Programme, which means he has already tested a Ferrari F1 car, and has been mentioned as one option for the team if it elected to drop Massa at the end of the season.

    Massa's future has been called into question even more after a disappointing performance in the season opener in Australia, where he failed to make it past Q2 and then retired after a clash with Bruno Senna while running outside the points.

    However, Perez said he wasn't paying any attention to the speculation and was fully focused on trying to follow up his points finish at Albert Park with another score this weekend in Malaysia

    “It's very early to speculate,” he said. “I'm really focused with my team, with Sauber. I think we have a great car and there's nothing more that I can say. I'm just focused on my team, to try to make as many points as possible because we have a very competitive car and I was to trying to make the most out of the car we have. Melbourne was a difficult weekend for me because I had the gearbox issue so I couldn't do a lap in qualifying so I qualified last and finished eighth. So it was a good race, and hopefully this weekend we can manage a good weekend. As for the rumours… they are only rumours.”

    Vettel has revealed the "master plan" it involves fine tuning and track time. That will surely counter the relentless development Pace of McLaren.
