    1386873900

    It's not every day that the FIA opens up applications to accept a new Formula One team on the grid. In fact the last time it did was in 2010, when 15 interested parties applied.

    The off-season in Formula 1 is not without its typical game of musical chairs: this driver moves there, that one is axed in favor of another, and some are left without a seat when the music starts again. But typically once the cars are launched, the contracts are signed and that's that. So when ...

    1323953820

    When you're starting up a new venture – really any new venture, but especially a new F1 team – what you really need is some experience on your side. And if you don't have it, you hire it, and you stick with it until you've gotten where you need to go. Someone has apparently forgotten ...

    1310128200

    Buy low, sell high. It's the most basic concept in investment. And while we can't speculate on the second part, HRT could hardly get any lower than it is now. The Spanish team has, shall we say, "struggled" since joining the F1 grid last season. Changing drivers like most of us change ...

    How the mighty have fallen. But when they do, someone else invariably needs to fill their shoes. And so comes two parallel developments from the lower rungs of the Formula One ladder. In one corner we have Bruno Senna, the highly-anticipated nephew of the late great Ayrton Senna. The young ...

    HRT F1 parts company with Dallara, reportedly eyes abandoned Toyota chassis
    1275395160

    The Hispania Racing Team has had a rough start this year in F1. The upstart squad has retired seven times in as many races, failing to score a single championship point so far. Which is still better than Virgin has fared so far – and surprisingly Sauber too – but that's no way to ...
