I'll never forget his Renault drive at Monaco in 2010. Particularly Qualifying. A modern day classic drive to rival the famous ones!


That was a good drive.

It would be good to see Kubica return to F1 but who do you believe as to whether he can and will return?

He has always been rumoured to go to Ferrari even before his Rally crash, So maybe the Media is sticking with that thinking, If he was fit and teamed up with his good mate Alonso at Ferrari it would be a cracker team.

I for one would like to see him race at Ferrari, as I'm a Ferrari fan...plus he's a brilliant driver but never got the chance in a decent car, hopefully he comes back and drives for Ferrari! That would be good to see, hopefully his drive with the team (mid year) goes well.

But would be become like Massa in that he will never return to the driver he was after a substantial accident?

Trulli has been dumped in place of Petrov. Not all that sad to see him go but very harsh this late into the pre season.

The fake contract rumours were true.

It was apparently a deal with a personal sponsor which meant he needed an official 2012 contract.

--

Yes it's a money deal - but Trulli was bordering on useless compared to Kov, and Petrov can back up his money with great pace. Win, win for Lot... *Caterham.

According to Brundles twitter, Channel One will have the Sky team commentating

"Martin Brundle @MBrundleF1
Heard Channel 10 Oz are taking my commentary with @CroftyF1 Hopefully many other countries will too for year 16. Getting my one-liners ready"

Excellent, Although I like Ben Edwards there will be something not quite right watching an F1 race with out Brundles voice. Dont mind Crofty either. Should be a good combo

They were always going with the Sky coverage. The fact that the BBC are only hosting 12 events would wreck the continuity with the commentators. That and their team is rubbish.

Will Lotus be behind in Melbourne because of this?

Lotus F1 team pulls out of Barcelona test due to chassis problems

Lotus has pulled out of the Barcelona test with immediate effect as a result of the problems it encountered with its chassis this morning.

The team has decided to abandon running in order to fully understand the problem with the chassis that manifested itself on chassis 2, which ran for the first time today.

This is despite chassis 1 completing the full Jerez test two weeks ago. The team said the problem requires modification to both chassis.

The car completed 1788 km of testing at Jerez, but the problem manifested itself at the higher-speed Barcelona configuration.

"Before we were due to fly chassis E20-01 out to Barcelona in replacement of chassis E20-02 - damaged this morning - we ran a series of simulations at the factory based on the data provided by our brief running on track today," said technical director James Allison.

"As a result, we were able to identify an area which requires some additional work. It will be more productive for us to carry out these modifications to both chassis at Enstone rather than send E20-01 out to this week's test. We'll put the right measures in place and we will be able to fix the problem before next week."

Team boss Eric Boullier added: "Not running this week has been a tough decision to take, but we feel that our choice is the right one. On the positive side, we have quickly identified the issue with the chassis and our design office has already devised a solution. We will be present at next week's test in Barcelona.

"We draw faith from the fact that the E20 was quick out of the box in Jerez and showed its reliability there. We have a lot of work ahead of us over the next week but everyone at Enstone is ready for this challenge."

Although the team has not revealed the exact nature of the chassis fault, AUTOSPORT understands it is in an area towards the front of the car.

That will have to hurt going in to the start of the new season!

Its a shame to miss that much track time, But as Boullier said they were quick out of the box so who knows what to expect.

I'd say probably not, as they would already have a fair amount of data.
