Note to self: if your dream of racing in Formula 1 ever comes true, hitchhiking a ride back to the pits is frowned upon. We all learned this valuable lesson when Mark Webber decided to hitch a ride with fellow racer Fernando Alonso after his car caught fire. The Singapore Gran Prix was finishing up when Webber exited his flamed out Red Bull car and went to find a ride from a fellow driver. Alonso slowed down, let Webber hop on his Ferrarri, and the two were off to the garage. The whole ordeal was pretty dang hilarious but F1 officials aren’t as easily amused as the rest of us. Both drivers received penalties for the incident but Webber in particular was hit a little heavier than Alonso. Because Webber has already accumulated two prior offences he would be issued a 10-place grid penalty in the upcoming Korean Gran Prix due to this being his third violation. This is a major blow to all the lazy F1 drivers who are stranded miles away from the pit area and are looking for a little bonding time with fellow racers. [Sportsgrid] The post I guess Formula 1 doesn’t appreciate hitchhiking racers appeared first on The Nosebleeds.

Who gained/lost from the tire changes of 2013?

After the British Grand Prix, sole tire supplier Pirelli changed the construction of the tires in order to avoid future delaminating issues. The new construction was similar to 2012’s Kevlar designed belt but incorporated 2013’s tread—a hybrid of sorts. The Kevlar-belted tires ran 10-degrees centigrade lower than the initial 2013 steel-belted tires. Sunday’s Singapore Grand...
