View – When Hamilton and Alonso claimed Senna

Senna Monaco 1993

Twenty years after his death, Ayrton Senna remains the model of two drivers Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton. One and the other seeking three championships pilot world. A quest worthy of the absolute.

When, last year Sebastian Vettel won his fourth world title in a row, the temptation to see the German pilot target the championship record of Michael Schumacher (7 titles) has crossed their minds. The Red Bull driver has also not hidden his desire would be to match (not to exceed) Schumacher.

But for Lewis Hamilton, currently leading the drivers world championship in 2014, the goal is to get only three titles. On the TV channel Sky Sports F1, Hamilton admitted that his ambition would be to get as many titles as world champion Ayrton Senna, before the end of his career.

View – The new Bernie Ecclestone order in F1

Bernie Ecclestone-

The economic crisis becomes a crisis of competitiveness for most teams. An opportunity to place a new piece in the vast game of the future taking shape before our eyes. Out with the principle of « constructor » set up there 20 years.

Kimi Raikkonen and Ferrari contract

The passion that surrounds the contractual terms of Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari is the result of deliberate. This season the 2007 world champion receives a salary of € 22 million in the BusinessBookGP2014 (see here), the equivalent of his teammate Fernando Alonso. Giving the image of equality. Except that the next season of the Finnish contract is more complex.

First, Kimi Raikkonen has signed for two years (2014, 2015), but a particular option led to the following condition: Starting a specified time (estimated at 31 July), if Ferrari is not included in the three first in the constructors’ championship, the driver could leave or redefine his contract. A set of options that salary Kimi Raikkonen is already set at €30 million for season 2015.

Indeed, Luca di Montezemolo made his calculations and includes in its perspective to attract and reassure the hiring Kimi Raikkonen is an expensive investment. If Ferrari finished 4th in the championship, the prospect of a salary to the lower world champion 2007 in favor of the Italian team (in case no outside alternative is given to the driver). Otherwise not.

Remains the most delicate part of the contract. The status of Kimi Raikkonen. As the last world champion Ferrari he wished technical equality, essential in his view, is respected. At the same time, to balance the sensitivities, Montezemolo has provided a strategic advantage to Fernando Alonso in 2014. Next year the Finnish contractually want full equality of treatment with its crew, not wanting to get into the Italian game interview he had in the past.

What transforms President Luca di Montezemolo magician. His strategy has always been the same for two decades. It uses the time of contract renewal to establish a precarious balance that desire for the Scuderia. Except that the contract situation of Kimi Raikkonen (and renewal of Fernando Alonso) will impose a different management.

Renault / Infiniti – Mercedes ? Reflection of Red Bull

Remember the ultimatum of Red Bull boss at Renault, dated from March and was two months . Without any changes, the Austrian brand considering its interests first. Knowing that a break with Renault F1 Team would cost approximately € 50 million. Note that Helmut Marko was not hiding in Spain that the delay by Renault will not be filled for several years.

The first motor track is Mercedes-Benz. Discussions took place between Mateschitz and Lauda. Person between good companies. Austrian German brand is not against the idea (to replace McLaren on the board ). But come to a halt CEO of Daimler, Dieter Zetsche , who explained that it will provide its engines when Red Bull manufacture cars. Curious statement , given that Force India has no intention to get into the car. This statement could be brittle finally ironic to disturb the game, so as not to offend the French.

Red Bull Racing the problem is twofold. The deal signed between Renault and Lotus earlier this year has not really appreciated by the Austrians. The other problem is called Infiniti. The Japanese car manufacturer has rejected the proposed deal with Red Bull Racing. The latter was to invest more money in both the team and to Renault Sport F1. A solution of early termination is in the air, allowing to obtain the turbocharged Mercedes in 2015. This break with Infiniti , Red Bull will cost about 40 million euros.

In total, the 2014 season of Red Bull Racing could cost about 100 million euros to get the Mercedes-Benz engine in 2015. Austrian brand has the means. Especially if it keeps Adrian Newey and Sebastian Vettel until 2017 and become competitive quickly.

The Alonso project for Ferrari

Hungarian Grand Prix . There are now nine months , was the scene of the first tension between Luca di Montezemolo and Fernando Alonso. A few weeks later the agent of Spanish, Luis Garcia Abad, is surprised openly discussing with Christian Horner in the Spanish press that makes the buzz. The most widely accepted and finally in the paddock theory is that the signing of Kimi Raikkonen at Ferrari in 2014 is a response , early , to the will of departure of Fernando Alonso. Except that the newspaper Marca and our recent information tell a different story and finally reveal the status of everyone in the team. The tension was not one and Fernando Alonso recommended Luca di Montezemolo to sign Kimi Raikkonen for the 2014 season. A risky move ? An approach especially interested .
Since his arrival in 2010 in Maranello, Fernando Alonso has understood his mistakes. Himself recently admitted in the Italian media after the race in Bahrain , he had come to Italy to quickly get the title of world champion and build a dominant team. The image of the success of Kimi Raikkonen , who won the title in the first year in the last races of the championship in 2007 , returns on its failure Abu Dhabi 2010. Goal now is to build a team around him and surround himself with the best . With an important detail . Unlike Michael Schumacher, who came up with Ross Brawn and Rory Byrne. Fernando Alonso has a global vision.
The day after the Malaysian Grand Prix at the headquarters of the Madrid Business School, University of Navarra , Emilio Botin (CEO of Banco Santander ) is launching the following sentence: « I have the ambition to support Fernando until the end his career is still for 10 years!  » A note serving and serve in the future for the environment of Fernando Alonso, who is aware of having a major sponsor as exclusive partner in the future. Useful.
The recommendation for Raikkonen was mainly according Marca, a way for Fernando Alonso to protect the arrival of Nico Hulkenberg, favorite Luca di Montezemolo. The contract was ready. German was a threat because he represented the future. Ultimately the duo Alonso- Raikkonen / Alonso – Raikkonen at Ferrari is the beginning of a large maneuver influence of Fernando Alonso in the Ferrari .
Last week, Luca di Montezemolo presented the transalpine press his plan to reorganize the Scuderia and a point is very interesting to note : the end of some contract advice . Rory Byrne likely be affected , but probably not Flavio Briatore, now highly influential figure behind the scenes of Formula 1. Ultimately dedication Alonso Stefano Domenicali after the first podium of the season for the Scuderia at the end of Chinese Grand Prix , was certainly a touching media attention , but it should not be dissociated from the real intrigue happening behind the scenes in Modena.

1954- 2014 the same story ?

« We say we are the rules taking into account the evolution of technology. What is the pinnacle of motorsport ? This is Formula 1. So Formula 1 must take into account the evolution of the industry , otherwise it will not stay on top of motorsport. « Indicated there one week Jean Todt in The Telegraph. The same reasons dictated the rule change in 1954.

1951, the Federation announced the rule change for 1954 with the introduction of the 2.5L engine A fragile situation , as Alfa Romeo did not want to develop a new car and announced its withdrawal in 1952 . The English were in arrears with their car at the time. Mercedes- Benz wanted regulatory changes quickly and were only Ferrari with its V12 4.5 L. This explains why in 1952 and 1953 2L F2 were the new Formula 1. And enter into force new regulations in 1954. The latter was chosen, not in the intention of reducing the speeds of Grand Prix cars , as was the case in the past , but to encourage research aspirated engines . The objective was intended to better serve the engineers to produce cars of mass, instead of developing compressor engines that were far from the reality of the moment.

The same choice was made for the Formula 1 2014. Honda communicates the efficient aspect of its future engine. Mercedes- Benz uses engineers developing hybrid products of mass to solve the technical problem of the F1 engine.

1954 regulations remained in force until 1960 and this was the basis of a major change in Formula 1. Indeed, there has been significant advances in engine performance (first time 100cv/litre were crossed) . Mercedes- Benz , BRM , Lancia , Bugatti, Vanvall , Ferrari, Maserati , Lotus, Cooper, Aston Martin etc … we tried the formula at the time. Especially in the last three years Cooper has revolutionized the design of F1 with the rear central engine and the redefinition of the status of manufacturer, forever.

Jean Todt said he wanted the engine Power Unit should remain in place until 2020. Hopefully when this new regulation suggests the future with a new major change in Formula 1. Towards a new design?
