F1 >>> nEWs MARSHALLS AID MELANOMA British Motorsport Marshalls Club member Paul sutcliffe is co-ordinating the launch of a charity calendar for Melanoma uK to raise funds for sufferers and awareness of the disease – particularly relevant for motorsport’s marshalls, who spend significant time in the sun. Paul himself has suffered with a malignant melanoma for the past five years and thus has first-hand knowledge of the disease. A significant number of F1 teams, circuits, and motorsport personnel have assisted in the project – including the British GP, BTCC, F3/GT, WEC, Pirelli Tyres, Sky Sports F1, the Bloodhound SCC project, Sergio Perez, Nico Hulkenburg, Jason Plato, Sam Tordoff, Mark Hines, Steve Ryder, Diana Binks, Allan McNish, Dr Wolfgang Ulrich, Tom Kristensen, Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, Bruno Senna, Charlie Whiting, Herbie Blash, Berndt Maylander, Paddy Lowe, John Iley and many more. The project has taken over a year to complete, but calendars will be available this month at just £10.00 (inc post & packing in the UK) for Christmas gift present planning.

Both teams have had administers appointed and have been given a two-race ‘leave’ from Formula 1. Both missed the Texas race and will not be in Brazil this weekend, reducing the size of the grid to 18 cars. Marussia is now under the administration of London-based restructuring and recovery firm FRP Advisory, while earlier Caterham Sports Limited (CSL) also went into administration under the control of London- based accountancy firm Smith & Williamson.
