Notícias do Dia...

Lewis Hamilton tem uma opinião bastante direta sobre dividir a telemetria entre companheiros de equipe. Segundo o piloto britânico, não é justo que outro piloto tenha acesso aos dados do colega, pois ele tem que descobrir os limites e os melhores modos de pilotagem com seu próprio esforço.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA... Hamilton virou piadista agora?! LOGO ELE falando isso?! hehehe


Dono de extensa carreira na F1, Pat Symonds já teve a chance de trabalhar com verdadeiras lendas do esporte, como Ayrton Senna na Toleman, Michael Schumacher na Benetton e Fernando Alonso na Renault. O engenheiro britânico não tem dúvidas em apontar qual foi o mais rápido dentre os pilotos com quem trabalhou.

Q&A: Jacques Villeneuve

Q&A: Jacques Villeneuve on F1 racing, his dad and his new race track in B.C. 

Former F1 champ looks back on his life and career while attending a Toronto gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of F1 racing in Canada.

Canadian F1 legend Jacques Villeneuve was enjoying himself at Wednesday’s 50-year celebration of F1 racing in Canada at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto. But one of the more pressing topics of the afternoon — which featured more than a dozen homegrown F1 legends sharing their memories — was a 1971 Boss Mustang that belonged to his late father, Gilles Villeneuve. 

The red and black screamer was one of two classic muscle cars his father used to drag race just outside Montreal, back in the early days when Gilles was getting started with performance cars. Gilles also tied the knot with his wife, Joann, in a ’67 Mustang, a car that is now being restored in a Montreal-area shop. 

For Jacques, the 1997 F1 World Champion, the thought of those two muscle cars, amid all the superb F1 machinery on hand to help commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first F1 race in Canada, was enough to prompt a few smiles and memories. 

We sat down to chat with Jacques, now 45 and a father of four, who is aiming to launch his new project, Area 27, a top-level race course in British Columbia, by the time F1 rolls back into Canada this June. 

So, how about that red ’71 Boss Mustang, what do you remember about that car? 
I have some good memories of that car. I used to sit in the back seat, I was a kid, I can still remember the smell of the leather seats . . . my mom drove me to school in it, we’d brought the car to Europe. She’d drive us from Monaco to the Swiss mountains (where the family lived). It was a six-hour drive and the car was different than anything else there, but we had the license plates (changed to European plates), the ones you see on the car now. My father wasn’t an engineer, but he kept redesigning the car (swapped out the original small block for a 427-cubic-inch Ford with dual-carburetor, high-rise manifold). 

Seeing the 50-year celebration of F1 in Canada (organized in part by the Star’s Norris McDonald), and all the legendary Canadian F1 drivers and builders here, what’s running through your mind?
Well, it’s wonderful to see all these people together in one place . . . I don’t know but some of them haven’t seen each other since the 1970s. I am a passenger in all that, but I’m excited to learn how it was all linked together by these people. I love that my dad’s car (Mustang) was restored, that I can see the restoration of his first drag cars. I never thought that car could be brought back to life. I know my mom and dad got married in that car (1967 Boss Mustang). It’s pretty cool. 

What thoughts are running through your mind — about your own career? 
Everything you do in life defines you. My career was a culmination of my dreams and my families dreams because, in a lot of ways, this (championship) was my dad’s dream. I don’t think he ever thought that he wouldn’t win it, then pass away and not be around to see his son win it. I still love to drive, always . . . when I was racing, you could call me anytime, day . . . night, middle of the night . . . and I’d be on a plane and going anywhere. I’d be in Melbourne (Australia) one minute, then on a plane to Monaco over night and wake up ready to test. It’s the things you do, the way your drive, the thinking and the moves, that’s what defines you. 

What was your biggest sacrifice?
It didn’t feel like a sacrifice, none of it . . . But if you live that life, you’re framed by it, you have to be selfish, focus on it and nothing else. I was 25 when I started (in Indycar and F1) and I was perceived as being young in the sport … Now, its super old, but it wasn’t a sacrifice then. Now, at age 13 and 14, parents have their kids sacrificing everything without the kids realizing it. They’re being taken here and there, and everything is plotted out . . . I didn’t have to sacrifice my youth, but once I got into F1, that’s all that existed, that’s all you needed to feel alive. It meant driving like a maniac, nothing else mattered. 

What kind of training did that involve?
There was a lot of training. I had an Austrian guy, he worked with Williams in ’96, and he was like me, young and proud. I didn’t want to train, I turned away from it a lot, but he built a proper training machine. I had my driver’s seat attached to the apparatus, then a lot of weights were brought in and we trained body parts, my neck . . . and muscles to counter the G-forces. The apparatus had a memory chip in it so you couldn’t cheat either. It lasted an hour or so and simply gaining five seconds on your (simulated times) was difficult. I’d be in my race suit and we’d do training at 3,500 metres altitude . . . the temperature was 40 C and the humidity made it feel like 60. In an F1 race, I’d lose 3 kilos of weight and more in water. By the end of the training, I was moving 45 kilograms with my neck. The last year I drove, we’d be pulling 6 Gs through the corners. It was almost . . . that you couldn’t see right, there was so much force. 

What do you remember about your father as a driver? 
I honestly don’t remember much. He couldn’t be a (dedicated) father because of the selfishness we were talking about. You needed to be that to be a driver back then, and my father was proud of his son, for sure. But he was a father, he loved his daughter and was proud of his son. After his death, I put it in my mind, in the back somewhere . . . but I remember him in a helicopter, doing barrel rolls because you weren’t supposed to be able to do that, and then he’d tell me to drive it . . . I was 10 years old. I was super proud of him, he was a racer, that’s how I saw him. 

Do you drive now? 
I don’t race, if that’s what you mean. It becomes difficult to drive unless you have a huge amount of cash, but the passion is still there. 

What’s your daily driver? 
A big Range Rover . . . I have four kids, we live in Switzerland, in the mountains. I play hockey, too. I play a lot, everyone plays hockey in Switzerland, even more so than here, there’s garage leagues everywhere. 

Tell us about Area 27. 
The Area is a (play) on Area 51, kind of a secret reference like Area 51 . . . the 27 is obvious (his father’s F1 car number). It’s a private club outside of Penticton, B.C. The course is 4.8 kilometres long; it’s the biggest track out west. I’ve always loved designing tracks, I’d draw them on paper when I was younger. I loved writing music but I designed tracks since I was 4 or 5, so this (Area 27) gave me an opportunity. You walk the area, take aerial views of it . . . then just feel what you want to have in it. We have 230 members now. We were amazed how many people have these cars but nowhere to drive them. We opened in November but we want to officially open on the weekend of the Montreal Grand Prix. I’m hoping to get my 97 Williams car there for the opening. 

F1 racing then and now, what’s the difference? 
Huge difference . . . They’ve gone in strange ways with technology and there’s this fake Green image . . . it has destroyed racing to an extent. People just want to see good racing but now it is largely expensive and complicated, it actually complicates a driver’s life. Then there’s tires that don’t survive. On a quality lap, they still can’t go all out and, on race laps, they’re as much as eight seconds off . . . none of that allows for proper, gladiatorial racing. People, for instance, like watching downhill ski racing because the racers are on an edge. That’s the same reason why they love F1 racing. If you look at my dad’s racing days, unless you could feel where things were, you had to feel it, and if you didn’t, you didn’t win. Just let racers be racers, let them be gladiators.

Ai Jacques, como amo ler entrevistas como esta!!!!  #amoinfinitamente

Este canadense tem uma visão simples, ideológica e romântica de tudo (seja na F1 ou em outros assuntos) e é uma das características que eu mais adoro nele. Sempre foi assim desde que eu me tornei fã dele há 21 anos. Faz tempo que estamos neste juntos né Ville?! Pois é...

E quando ele fala do pai (hoje mais do que nunca, por ser um também), imagino o que ele deve sentir. Um orgulho ainda maior e uma compreensão muito mais profunda de tudo o que o pai dele fez.

Jacques para mim sempre fui mais do que o piloto pelo qual torci. Sempre foi alguém que admirei fora das pistas, pelos pensamentos e ideias. É claro que há momentos em que não concordo com ele, mas isto não significa que deixo de respeitá-lo. 

Para encerrar, uma pena Gilles não poder ter vivido para ver o filho campeão e para estar nesta foto com ele, Joann e Melanie, celebrando a importância do GP do Canadá, que ele ajudou e muito a colocar no mapa da F-1.

50 anos de GP do Canadá

AutoShow Celebrates 50 Years of Grand Prix Racing in Canada 

Toronto, Ontario – Racing legend Jacques Villeneuve, the only Canadian driver to ever win the Formula 1 World Championship, today helped the Canadian International AutoShow launch an exhibit celebrating Canada’s rich history of Grand Prix racing over the past 50 years. 

Villeneuve, who earned the F1 crown in 1997 when he won the European Grand Prix in Jerez, Spain, was joined mother Joann and sister Melanie at a reception Wednesday to kick off the AutoShow’s “50 Years of Grand Prix in Canada” feature prior to its public opening on Friday, Feb. 17th. 

The Villeneuve family was joined on stage by nearly two dozen major players who have shaped Grand Prix racing in Canada over the past five decades, as well as a number of former Canadian racecar drivers. 

Surrounded by Grand Prix memorabilia — including two cars that belonged to his famous racing father, Gilles — Villeneuve told the large audience of media and guests that he vividly remembers the day he made history by edging past German superstar Michael Schumacher to win the F1 Championship. 

“He didn’t expect it. I can still see his face. I can still see his sweat. He was a driver who didn’t sweat, except for that day,” he said. “It ended up being a fairytale.” 

The AutoShow showcase of Grand Prix memorabilia, imagery and iconic cars includes many fascinating and important pieces from the Villeneuve clan’s storied racing history. The centerpiece of this special exhibit is a 1978 Ferrari driven by Jacques’ late father, on loan from Ferrari of Ontario, and the 1997 Williams driven by Jacques when he won the F1 Championship crown. It is the first time the car has been in North America since that 1997 season (it normally resides at the Williams Historic Museum in the UK), and still has on it the tire mark from where Schumacher tried to run him off the track in that final race. 

A 1991 Benetton driven by the German star — a seven-time Canadian Grand Prix Champ — is on display, one of two cars on loan from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum for the exhibit. 

A newly refurbished 1971 Boss Mustang complete still with Monaco plates – only the second car ever owned by Gilles Villeneuve – is being displayed for the very first time courtesy of Headrush Motors and Gilles’ widow, Joann. This car was one of Gilles’ first personal cars as his motor racing career started to take off, and helped cement his love and association with Ford products before he became a Ferrari icon. 

Furthermore, two of Canada’s historic Grand Prix venues – Canadian Tire Motorsport Park and the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve – will be present showcasing some fascinating documentaries from those very first races, and offering Show goers opportunities to win race tickets, including a pair of grandstand tickets to the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix to be given away at each day of the Show. 

Other cars featured in 50 Years of Grand Prix in Canada, include: 

A 1961 Cooper Climax T55 driven by Bruce McLaren 
A 1974 Parnelli driven by Mario Andretti 
A 1978 Walter Wolf WR6 driven by Jody Scheckter 
A 1987 Lotus 99T/5 driven by Ayrton Senna, and 
A 1990 Ferrari 641 driven by Nigel Mansell 

“Canada has had one of the best Grand Prix races on the Formula 1 circuit for half a century. We were incredibly pleased that so many people who played important roles in shaping Grand Prix racing in Canada came together to help us celebrate this milestone,” says Jason Campbell, General Manager of the AutoShow. 

The Vileneuve clan’s enormous contribution to racing will soon be in the spotlight at a new venue. The Villeneuve Automotive Museum is currently being developed in Montreal and is expected to be operational in approximately one year, said Michel Lamoureux, the museum’s founding CEO. 

The Canadian International AutoShow will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre between February 17th and 26th. Please visit autoshow.ca for more information.

Pode parecer bobagem, mas eu sempre me emociono quando vejo Jacques, Joann e Melánie juntos nestes eventos. Neste caso, a celebração de 50 anos do GP do Canadá.

Quem estiver em Toronto pode ir este fim de semana ver todos os carros citados na matéria acima em exposição no salão.

E este museu que vai abrir em Montreal com a história dos Villeneuve no automobilismo, um dia, se Deus quiser, ainda vou conhecer, assim como ir ao GP do Canadá.

Sem culpa no cartório

Pirelli: Não nos culpem se as corridas de 2017 forem chatas

Diretor de esporte a motor da Pirelli, Paul Hembery manda mensagem a críticos, mas é otimista: “devemos ter boas corridas”

Um dos maiores pontos de interrogação da nova temporada da Fórmula 1 paira sobre o comportamento dos pneus.

Falando no evento que comemorava os 110 anos da Pirelli em Turin nesta terça (14), Paul Hembery, diretor da fabricante, disse ao Motorsport.com que se o conceito do pneu novo não apresentar um bom show, a culpa não deve ser da empresa italiana.

"Você não pode agradar a todos e você só pode ir em uma de duas direções", disse Hembery. 

"Fizemos algo que era desejado desde o início, então houve a decisão de ir em outra direção. Nós estamos apenas seguindo o que o esporte nos pede. Tudo o que pedimos é que eles nos digam o que eles querem. Não há motivo para se queixar de algo que nós entregamos e que foi pedido a nós.” 

"Como esporte, nós estamos indo em uma direção diferente. Se isso funcionar como as pessoas dizem, então devemos ter boas corridas." 

Pelo fato de os carros de 2015 modificados não conseguiram entregar a quantidade necessária de downforce esperado para 2017, a Pirelli foi obrigada a analisar dados de simulações. 

"O maior desafio se você não tem downforce, é não ser capaz de fazer os pneus funcionarem como você quer. Nós trabalhamos por simulações", disse ele. 

"Os carros de 2015 modificados estavam bem longe em termos de níveis de desempenho, mas nós temos os dados de simulação.” 

Hembery sente que embora possa haver menos pitstops, a mudança nas regras deve criar uma situação em que as possibilidades de ultrapassagem possam ser aumentadas. 

"Vamos ver menos paradas", disse ele. "Teremos menos degradação. Você entra nos pits por causa da perda de desempenho devido à degradação ou desgaste, e neste caso estamos reduzindo ambos.” 

"Veremos muito mais corridas de uma parada. E o pneu não vai superaquecer na superfície, com isso os pilotos conseguirão dar o máximo e nos levar a um cenário onde as ultrapassagens podem ser melhoradas."

Temporada nem começou e o pessoal da Pirelli já está mandando recado.

Mas quer saber? Se os interessados (leia-se equipes) pediram as mudanças e a Pirelli fez o que pediram, não vão poder reclamar mesmo não, afinal a ideia da mudança terá vindo deles.

Veremos o que vai acontecer.

Raikkonen planeja abrir bar de karaokê na Finlândia

“Iceman” deverá abrir empreendimento na capital de seu país, mas tenta manter local exato em segredo

Kimi Raikkonen vai abrir um negócio de entretenimento em seu país natal nos próximos meses.

Segundo publica a imprensa finlandesa, particularmente o jornal Seitsemän Päivää, o piloto da Ferrari em breve abrirá um karaokê.

O local do empreendimento será mantido em segredo até o anuncio oficial de sua abertura. No entanto, a imprensa finlandesa diz que será no mesmo lugar onde ele mantém o seu iate na capital de seu país natal, Helsinque. 

O finlandês, famoso por fotos e vídeos curtindo a noite nos primeiros anos de sua carreira, mudou nos últimos tempos, após se tornar pai e se casar – fato ocorrido no último ano. 

Raikkonen tem apenas mais um ano de contrato garantido com a Ferrari.

Fonte: br.motorsport.com

Esta notícia saiu na quinta ou sexta da semana passada, não lembro agora e até comentei no meu Facebook que o Iceman vai rachar de ganhar dinheiro se abrir mesmo este bar de karaokê na Finlândia, já que a atividade é mega popular por lá.

A galera faz campeonatos e tudo, levam mega à sério, vi um documentário uma vez sobre isto.

Agenda livre em março

Alaia está linda, linda!
A matéria que segue é a primeira grande entrevista que Nico deu neste ano falando sobre esses primeiros meses de aposentado. No texto do Mail fica bem claro que Nico estava cansado pra caramba de tudo e que agora, ele está muito satisfeito com a decisão que tomou. Em uma das passagens e ele fala sobre ter perdido um quilo de perna para garantir alguns pentelhézimos de segundo que deram a pole a ele.
Vocês conseguem imaginar viver assim pela vida toda? A gente mal consegue descer pra academia do prédio 3 vezes na semana para fazer uma esteira porca. 
Outro ponto legal é como ele está focado em devolver ao mundo tantas coisas boas que ele recebeu da vida. Projetos de caridade como o do livro devem ser mais frequentes agora. 

As fotos com a esposa e a filha também são demais. A gente sente algo bom quando vê esse casal, né?

Nico Rosberg walked away from Formula One days after becoming world champion: 'I look at my calendar for March... it's totally blank!'
t seems slightly odd to be talking about sacrifices when you are a multi-millionaire son of an even richer father while sitting close to your Monaco apartment on the hills above the aquamarine tints of the Mediterranean.

This is how it is for Nico Rosberg, the Formula One world champion who walked out of his high-speed business just five days after realising his lifetime’s dream by taking the title against his oldest rival, team-mate and sometime friend Lewis Hamilton.
In his first major interview since he stunned the wider sporting public by going out at the top, forgoing his £18million-a-year contract to drive on at Mercedes, he talks more candidly than he could when he was in the maelstrom of the biggest contest of his life, the battle he won at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix last November.

He paints a picture of a man who squeezed out every drop of his talent in a one-off attempt to do what he had never managed before in any series: beat his old karting pal over the course of a season.
By sacrifice, he raised himself to a level of intensity he could never hope to replicate.
One small example: ‘I stopped cycling in the summer to lose one kilo,’ he says. ‘The next race I was on pole in Suzuka by one hundredth of a second. One kilo is worth three hundredths per lap. So I was on pole thanks to losing my leg muscles. It got me the win. Those were the small details I went into.’

Now he sits in his seat, with the Med over his left shoulder, and declares himself ‘very relaxed’. He says: ‘Start wherever you want.’

Well, let’s start at the end of his career, with that momentous decision to quit aged 31, an upheaval that some observers thought he should have mulled over to be certain his mind was settled. Others said he should defend his title.

‘I can tell you this,’ he says. ‘My Formula One career book is closed with the most awesome ending I could have imagined. And I love books that end happily.

‘I am turning my life upside down, so it will be full of challenges. The underlying belief, however, is that it felt totally right. I am following my heart.

‘Now I am excited because of all the freedom I have. When I was racing I was in a hamster wheel, a good one, of course, and I am so thankful for everything it gave me. I wouldn’t do anything differently.

‘But to be the best in your sport you have to make a lot of compromises.

‘Now I look at my calendar for March and it’s totally white, blank from start to finish. I can decide to explore whatever I want to. It’s about spending more time with my family, which last year was a serious shortcoming.

‘It’s learning to play the guitar. You need to be in one place for a while to be with your teacher and get into a rhythm. That’s a ridiculous, small example. There are bigger things, too: I have received so much in my life: the world championship, my family. I’m exploring what I want to do. Maybe something with kids, 10-year-olds, an age where I can make a difference.’

His decision to retire had been percolating in his mind since that leg muscle-light Suzuka win, the one that put the title in his own hands. He spoke briefly to his wife, Vivian, about it before the final race. He says she would have supported him carrying on, but deep down favoured his coming home rather than risking his limbs further.

They spoke about it again on the night of his championship win. But it took all his courage to inform his team principal at Mercedes, Toto Wolff, calling him rather than sharing the news as they flew over from a sponsor event in the Far East.

When he told one of his closest friends, his mate replied: ‘Now I understand how my sister felt when Take That split.’ It was a good line, but did not help settle his nerves for the call he was relishing least, to father Keke.

Rosberg Snr is a friendly but no-nonsense Finn - world champion in 1982, when he would routinely step out of the car and light a cigarette.

He made multiple millions as a businessman post-career and guided young Nico into Formula One. He then stepped aside to give his son his own head soon after he had established himself at his first team, Williams, for whom he made his debut in 2006 with the fastest lap in Bahrain.

Teste cancelado

Ferrari é forçada a desistir de teste após batida de Vettel

Depois de acidente nesta quinta com SF15-T, time avalia estrago e vê impossibilidade de seguir com treino no molhado

O dia de abertura do que era para ser um teste de dois dias para avaliar os pneus de chuva da Pirelli de 2017 foi interrompido devido a um acidente de Sebastian Vettel, que se chocou com o guard-rail nesta quinta-feira (9) em Fiorano.

Imagens em vídeo do incidente mostraram que ele saiu da pista molhada artificialmente em uma curva à esquerda após a ponte do circuito, atingindo os guard-rails.

Embora houvesse alguma esperança de que os reparos pudessem ser feitos durante a noite no SF15-T, uma análise feita no chassi na fábrica fez a equipe perceber que não tinha peças de reposição suficientes para retomar o teste nesta sexta-feira (10). 

A decisão de abandonar o teste significará que o terceiro piloto da Ferrari, Antonio Giovinazzi, perderá a chance de ganhar mais quilometragem em um carro de F1, já que ele deveria conduzir o teste hoje. 


O foco do teste da Pirelli era o feedback sobre como os pneus de pista molhada se comportavam, com um foco particular em suas características de aquecimento. 

Problemas com aquecimento foram destacados no GP do Brasil do ano passado, e o assunto foi posto em foco para 2017 graças ao novo regulamento que obriga largadas paradas após inícios com Safety Car na chuva. 

Uma consequência desta nova regra é que os pilotos provavelmente enfrentarão pneus úmidos com uma temperatura muito menor do que antes com os aquecedores. 

As condições na quinta-feira foram especialmente complicadas, com a faixa temperatura não superando os 5°C. 

Vettel não sofreu nada com o incidente, apenas algumas pequenas contusões depois de bater o cotovelo no lado do cockpit.

E daí você se pergunta: se a Ferrari não tem peças de reposição suficiente em sua fábrica, como a Manor pode ter?! #falonadasóobservo

Teste de Vettel com pneus de chuva termina em acidente

O primeiro dia de testes de Sebastian Vettel com pneus de chuva da Pirelli para 2017 terminou mais cedo após alemão sofrer acidente e danificar carro da Ferrari

O primeiro dia de testes com os pneus de chuva da Pirelli para 2017 não terminou como Sebastian Vettel gostaria.

O alemão, que pilotava o SF15-T adaptado para as regras deste ano nesta quinta-feira (9) perdeu o controle do carro na pista de Fiorano e bateu na barreira de proteção. O acidente aconteceu no início da tarde italiana e, apesar de ter saído ileso, Vettel foi obrigado a encerrar as atividades do dia, pois o carro ficou bastante danificado.

O modelo foi levado de volta para a fábrica e ainda não é certo se os reparos serão feitos a tempo de colocar o carro na pista para o segundo dia de testes, que foram marcados para sexta-feira.

Com a temperatura na casa dos 5°C, Vettel testava as diferentes especificações de pneus de chuva fornecidos pela Pirelli. 

Após se ver com menos tempo de pista do que o programado devido ao acidente, Vettel pode retornar à pista se o carro for reparado a tempo. 

Originalmente, Antonio Giovinazzi, terceiro piloto da Ferrari, havia sido escalado para o segundo dia de testes, mas o italiano pode acabar limitado a andar apenas na parte da tarde.

É, coisas de testes. O importante é que ninguém se machucou.
