Red Bull thanks Webber

Jun 27 2013, 8:16am CDT | by

Silverstone (England), June 27 (IANS) Following Mark Webber's decision to retire from Formula 1 at the end of the year, World Contructors' Champions Red Bull thanked him for his contribution to the team for seven seasons.

Silverstone (England), June 27 — Following Mark Webber's decision to retire from Formula 1 at the end of the year, World Contructors' Champions Red Bull thanked him for his contribution to the team for seven seasons.

The Australian joined the team in 2007 and during his stay, the 36-year-old achieved nine wins, 35 podiums and 11 pole positions. The team also bagged the constructors' championship for three consecutive years (2010-12) where Webber played an important part in their success.

"I am sure Mark thought long and hard before making what has no doubt been a very difficult decision. His achievements in Formula 1 are extensive and I am sure he will continue to push hard and build on that record until the end of the season," Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said Thursday in a statement.

"We support Mark's decision, he has been an excellent addition to the team since joining us in 2007 and we wish him all the best in the next stage of his career."

The statement also added that the decision on who will replace Webber will not be made until later in the season.

Un nouveau dispositif pour améliorer la sécurité

Aug 4 2014 5:17am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Le risque zéro n’existe pas en Formule 1 et n’existera probablement jamais, mais la FIA travaille afin de s’en approcher au plus près et d’améliorer ainsi la sécurité des pilotes et des spectateurs. Dernièrement, la Fédération a annoncé se pencher sur la problématique des roues mal fixées lors d’un arrêt au stand. Elles risquent bien souvent de se détacher en piste, malgré les attaches qui les lient désormais au châssis de la monoplace. En 2009, Henry Surtees, ...

L'exemple de l'IndyCar

Aug 2 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Les récents accidents qui ont vu des F1 partir en tonneaux posent question quand à la sécurité des Grands Prix. Même si les cabrioles de la Sauber d'Esteban Gutiérrez (après un contact avec la Lotus de Maldonado) à Bahreïn et de la Williams de Felipe Massa (expédiée dans les airs par la McLaren de Magnussen) à Hockenheim n'ont pas eu de conséquences fâcheuses, la FIA pourrait se pencher sur leurs origines. A cet égard, l ...

Que faut-il pour mettre en colère le souriant Ricciardo ?

Chez Daniel Ricciardo, on ne trouve pas la rugosité qui distinguait souvent ses illustres prédécesseurs Jack Brabham, Alan Jones ou Mark Webber... Lui ne se départ jamais de sa joie de vivre ni de son sourire ultra-brite : “Mon bonheur vient de mon pays, explique le pilote Red Bull dans le dossier que lui consacre le dernier numéro de F1iMagazine.

Daniel Ricciardo a remporté hier en Hongrie le second Grand Prix de sa carrière en F1, au prix d’une excellente stratégie mais également d’un très bon pilotage.

Daniel Ricciardo Looks Even More Like Real Deal After German Grand Prix Scrap

Jul 22 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

From the moment he was confirmed as Mark Webber's replacement at Red Bull, the 2014 Formula One season has always been about learning for Daniel Ricciardo. For the driver himself, it's been about learning on the job, with the challenge of adapting as quickly as possible to the environment of a team that had won the last four drivers' and constructors' world championships. As for the rest of us—the spectators, the onlookers, the colleagues ...

La 200ème à Evans

Jul 19 2014 11:21am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Le Néo-Zélandais Mitch Evans a réalisé un authentique exploit cet après-midi à Hockenheim en remportant la 200ème course de l'histoire des GP2 Series. Le protégé de Mark Webber n'avait pas brillé en qualification par la faute d'une barre anti-roulis défectueuse et s'élançait seulement en quinzième position sur la grille. Mais en optant pour un premier relais agressif avec les gommes tendres, le pilote de l'écurie Russian Time e ...
