Missed this yesterday but this in an interesting move from Ilott 12 months before the Ferrari Hypercar debuts - https://twitter.com/callum_ilott/sta...37309220024328

I kind of figured he'd be trying to get into a P2 but "a year away" does sound like he's going on a bit of work experience.

Enjoyed that Daytona 24 qualifying race. Interesting to see Rene Rast laying down a load of fastest laps in LMP2 including a new lap record. Clearly getting some under the radar prototype running before his Audi LMDh drive is inevitably announced.

Speaking of finger on the pulse, how did I miss Nick Cassidy signing on for Ferrari?

That's one hypercar seat in the Ferrari stable sorted.

Is this a Ferrari move? Seems a bit random for Aubry to do a season of GTE Am.

A big name entering the fray - a report out of France says Daniil Kyvat is moving to sportscars, doing WEC and ELMS with G-Drive Racing.

https://www.autohebdo.fr/actualites/...te-saison.html

Very logical career move.

He is still only 27. Could have a decent career in sports cars.
Does he still have Red Bull backing?

Are you saying he can't drive? I don't really follow the logic. We don't comment on United hiring a British driver for some back door reason.

Personally I think kyvat is a way overrated driver, or to be more accurate not enough fast/good to run in a top f1 team like redbull, but putting motorsport factor aside, my opinion is that a big russian corporation can only get big benefits by hiring a famous ex f1 russian driver, that's it.
SMP got sirotkin for basically the same reason.
BTW doesn't make a lot of sense to compare a private team like united autosport is with a team which basically doesn't even exist and that hires other teams to promote a russian government co-owned corporation.

Fair enough.

There is a local company here that has a slogan "The politics of business, and the business of politics". Perhaps that applies
