    Montoya - I was bored at McLaren

    Juan Pablo Montoya has spoken out for the first time since he made the announcement he was leaving McLaren and Formula One for a drive in NASCAR, saying that he found himself bored at the Mercedes-powered team. The Colombian said he was not getting anything out of constantly finishing behind Ferrari and Renault.

    "I was bored and no longer enjoying the races," Montoya told Colombian newspaper El Tiempo. "I had a good time in Formula One and achieved almost all my goals there - apart from winning the championship. I realised my chances of doing that were minimal."

    "My chances of becoming World Champion at McLaren were very slim," he added. "It's not much fun always fighting to finish fifth. I wanted a new challenge and that's what I found in NASCAR. It will be another new experience for me, especially with so much more racing. NASCAR is a different world."

    Montoya went on to describe the moment he told Ron Dennis he was leaving for NASCAR.

    "The coversation lasted about twenty seconds," the Colombian revealed. "He had nothing to say and then they didn't want me driving the car any more because they thought I would no longer be completely focused on Formula One."

  5. Schumacher gets two-second penalty

    Michael Schumacher has also been given a two-second penalty to be added to each of his qualifying laps after stewards found that he had passed two cars under red flags in this morning's practice session.

    The practice session was red-flagged when Button's engine exploded and Schumacher was ruled to have overtaken other cars.

    The penalty means that both he and fellow championship rival Alonso will suffer the same qualifying penalty this afternoon.

  6. Formula One World Championship leader Fernando Alonso has been handed a two second qualifying penalty by stewards after an incident with Red Bull test driver Robert Doornbos during pracice for Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix.The decision raises the prospect that Alonso, whose championship lead over Michael Schumacher has been cut from 25 to 11 points in recent races, may not make it past the first of Saturday's two knockout qualifying sessions.

    If that were to be the case, then the Renault driver would have to start the race from a best possible grid slot of 17th, vastly reducing the prospects of a much-needed points haul on a Hungaroring circuit known for its lack of overtaking opportunities.

    The incident occurred during Friday's second practice session when Alonso's Renault appeared to be held up by Doornbos whilst on a quick lap.

    The defending world champion shook his fist as he passed the Dutchman, Alonso then appearing to slow deliberately in front of Doornbos as the two cars braked into the track's turn one.

    Stewards chose to dock Alonso one second for the incident, with another one-second penalty coming after the Spaniard overtook another car under yellow flags.

    'Raikkonen signed five-year deal at Ferrari'

    According to Finnish tabloid Ilta-Sanomat Ferrari has taken his option on Kimi Raikkonen to race for the Italian team next season. The Finn would have signed a five-year-contract.

    The story is based on the Finnish tabloid's reliable sources close to Kimi Raikkonen. According to the source Raikkonen's contract is worth around 160 million euro and thus see the 26-year-old earn 32 million euro a year.

    Michael Schumacher said in Hockenheim he will announce his future plans in Monza and it is very likely that Raikkonen's plans will be announced shortly after Schumacher's decision was announced.

  8. We have another back to back grand prix! After Schumacher's triumph in Germany, here's come the tight Hungaroring! The gap between Schumacher and Alonso is 11 points, and certainly Schumacher has the advantage after 3 straight victories! Will Alonso and Renault bite Ferrari or the gap will become shorter??

    Wurz lands 2007 Williams race seat

    02 August 2006

    Williams have announced their race line-up for next season, with third driver Alexander Wurz stepping up to replace Mark Webber as Nico Rosberg’s team mate.

    It will be Wurz’s first full campaign as a Formula One race driver since 2000, his last of three seasons with Benetton. He subsequently spent four years as a McLaren tester before joining Williams at the start of 2005.

    “My natural habitat is racing, so I couldn’t be happier to have received Williams’ vote of confidence for this job next season,” said the Austrian. “Of course I know the team well having been a part of the race programme at every Grand Prix this season, but now my role takes on additional responsibility and I am really looking forward to this.”

    Commenting on the new line-up, team boss Frank Williams said: “Alex brings us important technical continuity and understanding of the car and as well as being an excellent communicator with our engineers, he is ultra-competitive during the Friday ‘full tank’ practice sessions. Alex will be a great racing driver for us as he is one of the few men I have seen in a wheel banging confrontation with Michael Schumacher and come out on top!

    “Retaining Nico for next year was not a tough decision. He has shown great promise so far in his debut season and I know he will build on this with every race. As much as taking great pleasure in confirming Alex and Nico for next season, I must also commend Mark Webber for his contribution to the team over the past two seasons as he has been a credit to himself and Williams and has never let up in his pursuit of competitive success. I know Mark will give his all until the end of the season and we wish him well in his future arrangements.”

    Webber has yet to make any official comment on his future plans.

    Kubica to replace Villeneuve in Hungary

    02 August 2006

    BMW Sauber test driver Robert Kubica will become the first Pole to contest a Formula One Grand Prix next weekend when he stands in for Jacques Villeneuve at the Hungaroring. Villeneuve has opted to miss the race following his crash in last Sunday’s German round.

    "Jacques has informed us that he is not ready to race after his Hockenheim accident,” confirmed BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen. “Robert has made an outstanding impression with the team so far, both in testing and on the Friday of the race weekends. Now we will see how he performs in a Formula One race.”

    Kubica, 21, is looking forward to the new challenge: "I had prepared myself for a whole year without actually competing in any races, so I'm even happier to get this opportunity. And I'm proud that the BMW Sauber F1 Team has such confidence in me. I'm determined not to let them down."

    BMW Sauber said they have not yet made a decision on who will drive the car either in the remaining races of the season or next year.

  10. Raikkonen steals pole from Schumacher

    29 July 2006

    Kimi Raikkonen stole his first pole position of the season from Michael Schumacher in a thrilling qualifying session at Hockenheim. It's the Finn's first pole for almost a year - his last was in the 2005 Turkish Grand Prix. Massa was third while all Fernando Alonso could manage was seventh.

    The first session was red-flagged when Scott Speed lost control of his Toro Rosso on the exit of turn one. He spun and smashed backwards into the inside wall of the circuit. After five minutes delay the session resumed and Massa ended up fastest, half a second ahead of team mate Schumacher, Raikkonen and Trulli.

    Liuzzi, Albers, Sato, Monteiro, Yamamoto and Speed all dropped out of the first session while Renault seemed to struggle for pace - Alonso just fifth and Fisichella nowhere in thirteenth.

    Ferrari continued to dominate the second session, but Schumacher asserted his authority going 0.3s faster than his team mate. Alonso struggled and was forced to complete a second run to guarantee his entry to final shoot-out. The unlucky ones to fall out were Webber, Klien, Trulli, Villeneuve, Rosberg and Heidfeld.

    In the final knockout session, de la Rosa turned in on Ralf Schumacher at the hairpin, damaging the rear of his McLaren and the front of the Toyota. Both limped back to the pits and after extensive repairs both rejoined the session in the final moments.

    Raikkonen set the marker of 1m14.070s and on his second flying lap ran wide into the gravel at the entry to the stadium section but it was enough - the Finn took his first pole position of the season ahead of Michael Schumacher and Felipe Massa.

    Jenson Button marked a resurgence for Honda in fourth ahead of Fisichella, Barrichello and Alonso a lowly seventh. Ralf Schumacher eventually took eighth ahead of de la Rosa and Coulthard.
