Formula 1 today confirmed the 2020 season will begin in Austria next month – and revealed details on the first eight races of a new calendar.
After racing was put on hold because of the coronavirus outbreak, F1, the teams and the FIA have been working to put together a plan to allow the season to begin safely, and today F1 chief executive Chase Carey outlined the first part of a revised calendar of races.
The season will kick off with the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring on July 5, followed a week later by a second race at the same track.
The Hungarian Grand Prix will follow a week after that, before a break. Then there will be two back to back races at Silverstone, followed by the Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona.
The Belgian Grand Prix will follow that, with the Italian Grand Prix at Monza a week later on September 6.
All the races will be supported by Formula 2 and Formula 3.
The Cobra is one of the most famous, and frequently replicated, cars on the road. Derived from the British AC Ace roadster, the Cobra became an instant classic after Carroll Shelby's thorough reworking.
I've not put much on here this week ut I'll be a bit more active here over the next few days
Here's a picture of Michael Schumacher's first F1 race winner, the Benetton B192 from 92. Micheal showed the wet weather skills that he would become famous for at Spa to take a his first race win. I've always liked the livery of the Camel sponsored Benettons.

What if Betrand Gachot had been in a slightly better mood when he called for a cab in London in 1991?
Gachot was considered one of the sport's most promising young drivers. Jordan driver Gachot had set the fastest lap during the 1991 Hungarian Grand Prix, but soon after he was sentenced to prison after an argument and sprayed CS gas in the face of a London taxi driver. A young Michael Schumacher bluffed his way into the empty Jordan seat and went on to impress during the Belgian Grand Prix weekend.
If Gachot hadn’t been in prison, Schumacher might have had to wait until the 1993 season when Sauber, Schumacher’s sportscar team, entered F1. Or, arguably, he might have never had a shot at F1 at all. This looks like a rare possibility but still it could have been a possibility. #JustImagine

* Dream Test. Karşılaştırma sayfalarında BMW Z8, Mercedes SL55 AMG ve Maserati Spyder Cambicorsa " Zirvedeki Buluşma" başlığı altında test edildi.V8 motora sahip bu üçlünün toplam beygir gücü 1266HP. Maserati 390 Hp, BMW 400 Hp, Mercedes ise 476 Hp güç üretiyordu. Mercedes'in yaklaşık +80 beygir gücünü kompesör takviyesi sağlıyordu. Net bir galibi olmayan bu testin kazananı sizin kalbinizin atış hızına bağlı! Hangi model sizi daha çok heyecanlandırıyorsa kazanan odur. Sonuç olarak bu araçlar Migros'a alışverişe gidilecek mantık arabalarından değil.
*Güncel sayfalarında Schumacher'in Türkiye ziyareti haber ediliyordu. Yeni Palio'nun reklam filmi için Tofaş'ın davetlesi olarak Türkiye'ye gelen Schumacher, önce İstanbul'da basın açıklması yapmış; ardından Bursa Tofaş tesislerine geçerek Palio'nun test sürüşlerini yapmıştı.
*Güncel sayfalarının diğer bir konuğu: VW Touareg. VW ilk defa gireceği lüks SUV sınıfı için Touareg modelini hazırlamıştı.Passat ve Pheaeton'dan izler taşıyan kokpit deri ve ahşabın mükemmel uyumu içindeydi. Giriş motoru olarak 3.2L V6 benzinli motor var iken; üst motor seçeneği olarak 5.0L V10 TDI motor vardı. Zamanla beraber seriye 2.5L V5 TDI ve 4.2L V8 benzinli motor eklendi.
*Almanya Menşeli bir Test: Hyundai Coupe 2.0 GLS. Vanların ,Suvların , Sedanların hakim olduğu bir piyasada halk tipi coupe üretmek! Bravo Hyundai . Estetik ama ortak kullanım parçalar sayesınde maliyeti düşmüş araç: tatminkar performansı, kaliteli iç mekanı ile beğeni topluyordu #maseratispyder#cambiocorsa#maseraticambiocorsa#bmwz8#z8#mercedessl55amg#amgsl55#sl55#michealschumacher#schumacherinturkey#hyundaicoupe
Formula E Audi driver Daniel Abt has been disqualified from an esports race and fined €10,000 for using a ringer in his place, according to Reuters. Rivals became suspicious after he qualified in second place and went on to take third in the Formula E Race at Home Challenge, despite never having finished higher than 15th before. It turned out that professional e-sim racer Lorenz Hoerzing was at the wheel.
A report from Germany is suggesting that Renault has touched base with Valtteri Bottas as part of the French team's plans to seek a replacement for Daniel Ricciardo for 2021.
The eruption last week of F1's drivers' market, sparked by Sebastian Vettel's departure from Ferrari at the end of the year, has left Renault with a seat to fill for next season alongside Esteban Ocon.
According to Germany's Motorsport-Total, Abiteboul has held talks with Bottas' manager Didier Coton to sound out the Finn on his prospects for 2021.
According to the latest reports, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff and Daimler are at crossroads over Sebastian Vettel. Allegedly, Mercedes’ parent company is in favor of signing the 4 times World Champion but Wolff isn’t on board. Keep in mind, these are rumors so treat them accordingly.
