Antonio Giovinazzi admitted that he still hopes to return to Formula 1 with Ferrari. We will remind that this year the Italian has helped Sauber, replacing an injured Pascal Wehrlein.Antonio Giovinazzi "This year has given me more than I expected. I do not deny that after a great year in GP2, I feel ready to participate in a full season in Formula 1. But now I feel even more prepared than last winter.In Australia, I had a great time, but China was the worst Grand Prix for me in the career of a pilot. Error happened to me on the stage when I was under pressure from the press. After this criticism was rife. Maybe in China I set goals that were unattainable. But that disappointment helped me grow.I understand that Formula 1 is not football, where you can play for different teams. Here only 20 seats for all pilots in the world, but I always thought that there may be at the level of Vettel and Hamilton".

The car felt very well since Friday. We were very quick in the turns, and we had good handling and good balance throughout the race.We lacked the maximum speed for attack and defense, so I was stuck behind a Sauber for half the race and then couldn't pass Magnussen. As soon as I fell out of his DRS zone, it was very vulnerable, so in the end, there's nothing I could do to stop Lewis.I fought hard, trying to brake a little later each time, but still missed out on ninth place. It was a good battle, but it's so hard when you don't have a good machine.Now we're going to Brazil - let's try and earn some points there".

Who is Pierre went Out

At the Grand Prix of Malaysia will debut a 21-year-old Pierre went Out, which is to temporarily replace in the Toro Rosso of Daniil Kvyat. We traced the career of the French pilot.His career Pierre began with karting. Much success in the French series is not achieved, but in 2010 became the Vice-champion of the European championship of karting.In 2011, Faded debuted in formulas, starting with the French Formula 4. He won four of 14 races, three more podiums and eventually became the bronze medalist.The next step - evrostroy Formula Renault 2.0. In the 2012 season, Pierre has only twice been on the podium and eventually finished 10th. In 2013 with three victories, he became the champion thanks to what became a participant of the youth program of Red Bull.In 2014, went Out with the support of Red Bull got a place in the team Arden, acting in the Formula Renault 3.5. Never managed to win, but eight podiums allowed to take second place in the series. At the end of the season, Pierre has played in six races for the GP2 team Caterham, but above the 11-th place was never finished.In 2015, went Out spent a full season in the GP2 for the DAMS. 3 pole positions, 4 podiums and 8 place. In may, Pierre first sat behind the wheel of a Formula 1 test with Toro Rosso. Then spent two test days in the Red Bull.In 2016, the second attempt went Out all the same became the champion of the GP2, winning four races. At the final stage, he managed to get ahead of Antonio Giovinazzi, which in the season of 2017 made its debut in Formula 1 in the Sauber. In parallel, Pierre was listed as a reserve pilot of Red Bull and took part in the tests, Red Bull and Toro Rosso.Before the beginning of season 2017, the leadership of Toro Rosso chose between the Quatum and died Out, but in the end I relied on more experienced Daniel. But Pierre was sent to the Japanese Superformula, because the rules GP2 champion can't stay in the series. In Japan, Faded settled, won two races and now two stages to the end of the championship, inferior to the leader just a half point.Went out spend in the Toro Rosso race in Malaysia and Japan, and then miss the United States Grand Prix, as the stage in Austin is superimposed on the final race in Superformula. Obviously, after that, he will be back behind the wheel of a Toro Rosso.In the Toro Rosso want to check went Out in combat conditions before you sign a contract with him for the season 2018. It is very likely that the contract with Pierre would be signed, but his partner will be either Daniel, or protege, Honda Nobuharu Matsushita.

Marcus Ericsson could lose a place in the Sauber

Chapter Sauber Frederic Vasseur said pilot Marcus Ericsson is not guaranteed a place, despite the fact that he is associated with team owners.Frederic Vasseur in an interview with Auto Motor und Sport "I Think it is worth building a team around one pilot just because he has good communication with the owners. Obviously, we need to talk to the owners about what's good for Marcus, and what suits the team."And here is Pascal Wehrlein, a career supported by Mercedes, can keep his place in the team.Frederic Vasseur "Pascal knows our situation, and I knew him in the DTM.

Season 2018 seven vacancies

In the course of Grand Prix of Singapore became aware of the extension of the contracts of Valtteri Bottas, the pilots Force India, and also about the transfer of Carlos Sainz in the Renault. The teams are still seven vacancies, one of which may take Daniil Kvyat.Williams - 2 wakasiyaka no contracts with the pilots, but there is no doubt that lance Stroll will stay in the team, given the investment made by Strolla senior.In a couple of Canadians who will soon turn 19 years old, Williams is seeking an experienced pilot, over the age of 25 - this requirement is title sponsor Martini. Until recently, Felipe Massa remained the only candidate for this place, but first started talking about Paul di Resta, which now appears to be backup pilot of the team, and then about Robert Kubica. Kubica first tested in the part of Renault, but there chose Carlos Sainz, and now Robert is actively training in the simulator Williams.Another candidate - Marcus Ericsson, who may lose the place in the Sauber. The only advantage of the Swede is a solid set of sponsors.Toro Rosso - 2 vakansiyalar Sainz goes to Renault, and with high probability it will be replaced by Frenchman Pierre went Out - other suitable pilots in the Red Bull yet.Obviously, stay Sainz in the Toro Rosso, then went Out would take place Daniil Kvyat. Now, the Russian pilot has a chance to keep his job, it's important to make mistakes in the remaining races.Meanwhile, a new partner Honda want to see in the ranks of Toro Rosso its pilot Nobuharu Matsushita, which now appears in the Formula-2. It is not clear in what capacity - possibly as a test pilot. If the Japanese insist on the place of combat pilot, it is easy to guess that it will go with Cuatom.Few people know that now Matsushita listed as a pilot for the development of the McLaren-Honda. However, before the combat cars are not all limited to work in the simulator.McLaren - 1 vakantiecentrum with Stoffel Vendorno confirmed a month ago that negotiations with Fernando Alonso go. Earlier two-time champion reiterated that he would remain at McLaren, if the team change engine supplier. It happened, and now, as far as we know, Alonso and the McLaren management to discuss details of the new contract. Most likely, the agreement will be signed for one season to sign a contract for a longer period, the Spaniard just will not risk it.If Alonso refuses though it goes nowhere, then McLaren, in the words of Zac brown, have a plan "B". Obviously, this refers to Jenson button. Lando Norris, who will soon turn 18, they're unlikely to be put into a fighting machine.Sauber - 2 vacanciel contract extension with Ferrari Sauber head of Frederic Vasseur said he was willing to give one or even two seats for the wards of the Scuderia. Obviously, in return, the porters expect to receive discounts on the powerplant, gearbox and other components that will deliver Maranello.Ferrari has Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclere, who in the course of this season, was repeatedly brought to the tests. And Giovinazzi even held two races, replacing the injured Pascal Wehrlein. If Ferrari is willing to pay for seats of both pilots, no place will be Marcus Ericsson. If the Scuderia will pull only one place, it is likely that Eriksson and his sponsors will remain in the Sauber.Without mestis the above it follows that in the season of 2018, we will not see on the grid protege Mercedes of Pascal Wehrlein. In the customer team Force India all the seats were occupied, and in Williams he victims. Perhaps he will remain in Formula 1 as a backup pilot factory team Mercedes.

Sauber and Williams are waiting for the decision by the pilots in the 2018 season
