Alonso ironiza queixas do Hamilton

Alonso ironiza queixas e diz que Hamilton poderia ter sido campeão em 2016 se tivesse usado dados de Rosberg
  
Depois de Valtteri Bottas, chegou a vez de Fernando Alonso reagir às queixas de Lewis Hamilton referentes ao compartilhamento de dados entre companheiros de equipes. Assim como o finlandês, o titular da McLaren não se mostrou contrário ao fluxo livre de informações.

Na semana passada, Hamilton afirmou que é “injusto” que um piloto possa estudar os dados de outro e afirmou que pediu para não ver as informações de seu companheiro de equipe.
  
“Dou minhas voltas, faço meus deveres e o outro piloto pode ver tudo. Pedi para a minha equipe. Não quero ver a telemetria de meus companheiros. Acredito que não é justo que eu possa estudar seus dados”, explicou. “Por exemplo, quando pilotamos, escolhemos os pontos de freada, os pneus, todas essas coisas que ajudam a fazer uma curva mais rápida. E o outro piloto provavelmente pode fazer mais ou menos como você”, continuou.

“No entanto, com esses dados, pode simplesmente te copiar. ‘Ah, ele freia cinco metros mais tarde aqui, vou então começar a frear cinco metros mais tarde também’. Isso é algo que não gosto, pois permite que estejamos mais próximos. É algo que me encantava no kart, pois era algo que não se podia fazer e só se brilhava o talento”, seguiu.

Dias depois, Hamilton tratou de minimizar a polêmica e afirmou que não tinha problema nenhum com Bottas e com a Mercedes, mas reforçou que não vê como justa a troca entre companheiros de equipe.

Nesta sexta-feira (24), durante a apresentação da MCL32, carro da McLaren para a temporada 2017 da F1, Alonso rebateu as declarações de Hamilton e avaliou que o próprio #44 poderia ter feito um uso melhor da liberdade na Mercedes.

“Se tivesse olhado mais dados de Rosberg no ano passado, talvez tivesse vencido o campeonato”, disparou.


Ainda, Alonso admitiu que foi sondado pela escuderia germânica para a vaga de Rosberg, que anunciou a aposentadoria dias após conquistar o título de 2016, mas contou que optou por seguir em Woking já que está “feliz na McLaren”.

2017 Ferrari F1 SF70H First Shakedown - Kimi & Sebastian

Vídeos de hoje, do shakedown da Ferrari com Kimi e Vettel em Fiorano.

Räikkönen andou com pista seca, enquanto Sebastian acabou enfrentando condições um pouco úmidas. 

Este barulho... não consigo me acostumar!

Entrevista com o Iceman

Kimi falou com a TV italiana sobre o novo carro. Comentou que obviamente é preciso esperar os testes de Barcelona (que começam semana que vem) para dar opinião sobre desempenho, mas que ele gostou até agora e que obviamente o carro é bem diferente do anterior em função das mudanças de regulamento.

Está aberta a temporada de Bwoah!!! 😁😁😁

Ferrari lança o SF70H

E a Ferrari apresentou hoje, online, o carro da temporada 2017, o SF70H. Bem mais vermelho, o que eu particularmente gosto. Sou tradicional quando o assunto são as cores da equipe de Maranello. Mas não curti os detalhes brancos no macacão dos pilotos, ficou estranho. Mas com o tempo me acostumo.

Agora um pouquinho de história sobre o motivo do número 70 no carro deste ano. É para celebrar a data em que a marca Ferrari foi fundada oficialmente, no ano de 1947 (apesar de já existir desde 1939). 

Isto aconteceu porque o governo de Federico Mussolini passou a comandar a Alfa Romeo em 1940 e a Ferrari não pode participar de competições (tendo que atuar apenas como uma construtora de peças para aviões e outras máquinas). Alguns anos depois do fim da Segunda Guerra Mundial e também com o término do governo de Mussolini, a marca Ferrari nasceu oficialmente, como a conhecemos hoje. #adoroHistória

Voltando ao presente...Vamos ver se vai ser possível fazer algo de bom com este carro. #nãoconfionaFerrari #rezandojá

Abaixo algumas fotos e vídeos do dia para vocês. Detalhe, no de lançamento Kimi estava meio inquieto com as mãos e Vettel queria rir... hahahaha... Entendo perfeitamente os dois! hahaha...

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.
