There's a golf course near me in Spain that's been up for sale/auction for a fair while and there have been no bids although it could be brought for £100k ! there is a little problem though with debts that come with it amounting to 2-3 million

Not sure if this is the right place to post, but Autosport reports that Renault are on the verge of dropping Maldonado in favour of Kevin Magnussen, which would be a great example of F1 attracting the RIGHT kind of driver.

Quite right, Renault able to race without driver funding, at least on the Maldonado scale

he's also a product of formula 3 and reasonably proper formula ford (without wings), which makes him the last of the old school!

Well, Maldy doesn't actually have the money atm, the Govt withheld some/all of it apparently - so anyone with in with a shot but glad it's someone with talent (and surely some backing.)

Maldonado has plenty talent he just hasn't been able to hone it in 4 years in F1. He seemed to go backwards rather than develop though.

Time to go.

He took a huge step forward in 2012 (although glorified alongside Bruno Senna) but I think combination of Bottas and Grosjean as teammates along with mediocre and temperamental chassis meant he couldn't do an awful lot noticeably. Autosports idea him having a breakout season is imo ludicrous, 2013 was that season. The fact he may have actually been able to look good against Palmer doesn't mean he would've been fantastic.

Magnussen is a much better driver.

Now we have 16 year old Nikita Mazepin into "development role" at Force India. I suppose we could say this is similar to the Hamilton role with McLaren years ago or the Red Bull school but I suspect it has more to do with finance?

The Autosport piece does not say if Force India are paying for his racing in the Euro F3 series but one suspects not!

mr mazepim snr is a very wealthy man. i would imagine force india aren't the ones getting their chequebooks out

what's the harm? it's paying people's wages, it's a "job" that wouldn't have existed otherwise, he's not doing any less privileged drivers out of work.

This is a motorsportmagazine podcast featuring an interview with Tom Kristensen, in it he goes into the reasons that he did not go into F1 and the need for young drivers to pursue different forms of motorsport if they are seeking a career.

TK is probably the most glaring omission from F1 of the past twenty years. Easily - easily - good enough to have prospered, but never got the chance. Still, he did all right for himself.

Glad it was useful.

This one is a bit of a frightener.

Sorensen complaining that he was ditched as 3rd driver for Jorda who is 12 sec a lap slower in the simulator!

Obviously the two have great respect for each other (not)! This is the response from Jorda, http://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/jo...ns-672648/?s=1 , who thinks that Sorensen should spend more time brushing up his own career.

There is usually two sides to all these tales, and it will only be the team that will be able to confirm or deny either of their claims, and I very much doubt that they will, officially anyway.
