This year, Pascal Wehrlein lost the support of Mercedes, and at the end of the season will lose their place in the Sauber. However, the German expects to stay in Formula 1.Pascal Wehrlein "I don't know what will happen next. However, the race in Abu Dhabi is not seen as the last in his career.With regard to the role of test driver, I can not imagine without racing next year. I want to be a combat pilot, and preferably in Formula 1.I have not lost hope, but I really want this to be clear as early as possible. However, in the last two years I had to wait until January or February.It is worth noting that all the points earned by the Sauber team this season, on account of Pascal Wehrlein. The co-pilot Marcus Ericsson has never finished above 11th place, but the Swede has sponsors that helped to preserve a place in the team.As for Wehrlein, last chance - the Williams team.
The engines of Formula 1 in 2021 want to make it easier and cheaper to make in the League could involve small private companies. However, Mario Illien, a renowned expert on racing engines and owner of Ilmor, doubts that you can do without solid sponsors or support automakers.Mario Illien "In principle, the correct concept. Yes, the engines should become easier and cheaper. However, private companies creating such an engine still will not do without serious financial assistance.Work with two clients will be difficult. If at least one of them will be in a difficult situation, then the whole thing will come to an end. Need serious help sponsors or manufacturers."In 1993-2001, the company Ilmor built engines Formula 1 under the brand name Mercedes, who used the team Sauber and McLaren. Later a German company bought the business from Illiana. A few years later Illien created a new company under the old name Ilmor.
The head of Renault's Cyril abiteboul doubt that the new engines proposed for 2021, suitable for independent producers.The idea is that independent companies such as Aston Martin, Cosworth, Ilmor were able to enter the championship on the rights of the manufacturer.But Cyril abiteboul doubt that plan will work "If the FIA and Liberty will not be able to offer an engine that will work on standard technology, so even with the extreme limitations in most areas of development, the private producers will not be able to enter the championship.And this business plan will only work if producers are subsidized by sponsors or a major car company.But this engine will be attractive to car companies. So I ask FIA and Liberty to ask themselves new potential participants what they want from the new engine".
Juan Pablo Montoya is skeptical of the idea put behind the wheel of a Williams Robert Kubica, who had not acted in Formula 1 since 2010. He was the Colombian raced for Williams in 2001-2004 Juan Pablo Montoya "to be honest, this sounds like a joke. I am sure that Robert will not be able to give 100 in a modern car of the Formula-1".Similar opinion is shared by Patrick head, co-founder and former technical Director of Williams "Robert was one of the best in the past. Only he knows whether he is ready to return. He had a serious injury, and Williams now want to know what he's capable of".According to rumors, Kubica has already found sponsors who are willing to bring Williams 8 million euros. It is expected that Robert will take part in tyre tests, which will be held in Abu Dhabi after the final race of the season.
Team McLaren has confirmed that next season it will be a reserve pilot Lando Norris, who in a week will be 18 years of age. Last season the Briton on the first attempt won Evrostroy Formula 3.Next year, Norris will be present at all Grand Prix, to communicate with pilots, engineers and sponsors. Also Lando will work on the tests and in the simulator. Perhaps occasionally a young Briton will compete in some series. While scheduled to participate only in the 24 hours of Daytona, where his partner will be Fernando Alonso.Zac brown, the head of McLaren "Lando is an incredibly talented young pilot who deserved this role. Last season he won the Formula Renault and was awarded the McLaren Autosport BRDC as the best young British pilot, and this year he won Evrostroy Formula 3. This is one of the most promising pilots in the world. The tests in Hungary, behind the wheel of a McLaren he showed incredible results, proving that he is ready for the next step."Eric bulge, racing Director, McLaren "the team should be a backup pilot. Lando will become a full member of the team, together with us, he will visit all the Grand Prix. We will help him in further development, we will show how our team is what a modern racing car. In the season of 2018 Lando will be involved in all business processes. We will prepare it so that in any moment he could replace Fernando or Stoffel".Lando Norris "I am delighted to be part of the McLaren in 2018 as a test pilot and a backup pilot. Next week I have to conduct tire tests in Interlagos. I have two great teachers Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandorn, and I will do my best to help the team back into the lead.At the moment we decide where I will play next season. There are several options, but the decision is still pending".
Pilot Williams Felipe Massa announced he will leave the team and Formula 1 at the end of the current season.Felipe Massa "As you know, after last year's decision to leave Formula 1, I agreed to return at the request of Williams. Four seasons at Williams gave me great pleasure, but this year I decided to retire. Thank you to everyone who supported me my wife, my father, all my family, my Manager, Nicolas Todt, friends and sponsors, and fans.I have to prepare for the last two races in Brazil and Abu Dhabi, which will be very emotional. I want to finish my career on a high note, and then begin a new Chapter in my life".8 Nov Mass will hold a press conference dedicated to the end of a career in Formula 1.Claire Williams, Deputy team principal "I Want to thank Felipe for all he has done for our team.

McLaren announced that in the season of 2018 can return to the colors of the papaya, which was used by the team in the late 1960s and early 1970s. the car with the same paint Fernando Alonso took part in the Indy 500.Zach brown "we are Now beginning to consider the coloring options for the next year. I think the fans want us to chose the color of papaya.When we were in such colors in IndyCar, we had a huge number of requests from fans who asked the same colour in Formula 1.

But I do not exclude such variant".Designer Sean bull has already suggested coloring McLaren for example MCL32.
As reported by the Swiss publication Blick, citing a source inside the team, the leadership of the Sauber refused to renew the contract with Pascal Wehrlein.It is expected that one will receive a protg of the Ferrari. It will be either Charles, LeClair, or Antonio Giovinazzi. In return, Sauber expects to get a discount on the power plant of Maranello.Second place is likely to retain Marcus Ericsson, which has a good sponsors and communications with team owners.The only chance of Wehrlein is Williams. It is known that Mercedes is negotiating with a team that uses German engines.
In the Red Bull/Toro Rosso actually refused the services of Daniil Kvyat, and, as reported by Sky Sports, the Russians were allowed to look for a place in another team.At the moment the job is in Sauber and Williams. To get to Sauber, you must have either the support of Ferrari, no major sponsorship package. Title sponsor Williams takes a pilot over the age of 25, and Daniel still only 23. So the probability that the team will remain in Formula 1 as a combat pilot is practically zero.However, it is possible to look for options in IndyCar.
Williams technical Director Paddy Lowe has admitted that Pascal Wehrlein is among the candidates for a place in the team in the season of 2018. The main problem of the German pilot his age as the title sponsor of the team, the brand Martini, requires anyone over the age of 25.Paddy Lowe, technical Director, Williams "If we are talking about Pascal, we do not need to check on the tests, because we see how he performs in the race. Yes, we need to consider the wishes of the sponsors, but I am also sure that Martini understands how important for us pilots.We will choose the option that is best suited from the point of view of the results, not the one that is best for sponsors".According to rumors, Lowe does not want to work with Felipe Massa, so now the benchmarks are two other veteran Robert Kubica and Paul di Resta. As for Wehrlein, the Lowe is well acquainted with him in a Mercedes.
Earlier, after the purchase, Liberty Media of the Formula 1 championship, the American company moved from the London headquarters of Bernie Ecclestone in a larger building in the British capital.But Sports Business Daily reports that Liberty opens office Formula 1 in new York against the background of efforts to use the potential of the huge American market.The representative of Liberty Norman Howell "Yes, we are opening a small office in new York, which will be the centre works with sponsors".
Brazilian ex-pilot Sauber Felipe Nasr said that he wants to return to the championship next year, but it is unlikely.Felipe Nasr "I tested the prototype IMSA, I had some contacts with some teams in Formula E, I spent several sessions in the simulator, worked in Indycar during the race in new York.In Indycar I was invited Helio Castroneves. He introduced me to a lot of people in this championship.Regardless of the category, I think next year I will have the opportunity to participate in the races. In Formula-1 will get difficult. Here it is necessary to be associated with the automaker from the beginning of your career, or looking for a lot of money for their participation in the championship. What races are held in your country, does not help."Nasr enjoyed the support of the Brazilian Bank, but because of the crisis in Brazil Banko do Brasil turned to the sponsorship program. No sponsors and Felipe at the end of last year left without a place in the Sauber, despite the fact that he brought the team score.
The pilot of Renault Jolyon Palmer hopes to keep his seat at Renault until the end of the season.Sources report that a British pilot and his father Jonathan rejected the proposal of the French team to 3 million taxed to give place to Carlos Sainz on the remaining six races this year.Jolyon Palmer "the Car is getting better, I also look the other teams, so we will try to show another good result."However, there remains a chance that Renault may increase its offer of payments to Palmer and his sponsors. Rumor has it that amount increased to 7 million.But Spaniard Carlos Sainz seems confident that it will remain in the Toro Rosso before the end of the year.Carlos Sainz "I said nothing about moving to Renault already in Malaysia. I think it would be better to stay in the Toro Rosso, focusing on the team and its goals in the final phase of the season".
Last week Robert Kubica were to hold a private test in Japan driving a Williams 2014. However, according to Motorsport Magazine, interposed the family of lance Stroll.Obviously, Stroll senior has no influence on the choice of the pilots, but he can specify who can participate in private tests, which he partially paid. The Williams team had planned to assess the shape of Kubica, but in the end driving, Stroll younger.I must say that in the course of this season, lance has spent a lot of private tests. Trained young canadian and to the Singapore Grand Prix, and after. Perhaps Williams private tests cost even more than the race itself. But part of the cost covers Lawrence Stroll.Now Williams plans to have tests for Kubica somewhere in Europe. It is possible that this Robert will have to find sponsors.
The head of McLaren Zach brown said his team will work with a good budget next year.Zach brown "we Have a very loyal shareholders who want to win races. This is the main goal, so they gave us the right to do whatever it takes to win, and we will work together on the financial side of the question. We will come to any financial agreement that is needed by the team. If we need additional funds, we receive them because of race are a major advertising company.Main sponsorship deals will be concluded in late fourth quarter of this year and early in the first quarter of 2018. It would be nice to announce it before the summer break, because you always want more time to prepare for work with sponsors, but the situation now is exactly what we will be able to solve all the questions only at the end of the year."It is known that in the last three years, McLaren has received 100 million dollars a year from Honda and didn't pay for the engines. However, because of poor results have left many big donors.
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.
According to the publication Motorsport-Total, the team Toro Rosso and Honda mechanics all agreed. However, under the deal, one of the places that should be occupied by Japanese Nobuharu Matsushita, which this season is in Formula 2 and in parallel works as a pilot for the development of the McLaren-Honda.If Carlos Sainz will remain in the Toro Rosso, Matsushita will take the place Daniel quata. If Sainz will go to Renault, then it is likely that it will replace Pierre went Out.Kvyat's chances to keep a place in the Toro Rosso is minimal. Looks like it's time to look for sponsors to compete for a place in, say, Sauber. Or issue a series of incredible results to convince the team management that he went Out.
