GP Week : Issue 102
n Former F1 driver Trevor Taylor passed away on Tuesday. The Englishman had raced in F1 for nine seasons, between 1959 and 1970, competing for teams including Cooper, Lotus, BRP and McLaren. Over the course of his 34- race career, he scored just eight points, with one podium finish at the 1962 Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. He died aged 73 after losing his battle with cancer. n Force India’s Paul di Resta will sit out yet another Friday practice session, after his team confirmed he would not be driving in Japan this weekend. The team is currently battling to hold on to sixth place in the constructors’ championship from Williams who are just four points behind, and as a result are looking to give race drivers Sutil and Liuzzi as much track time as possible. “It’s such an important time in the year that we need to play the team game and give ourselves every advantage we can,” said di Resta. n F1 teams signed up to a new and extended resource restriction agreement at the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend. The new agreement, which will run until 2017, reportedly closes a number of loopholes that existed in the initial agreement, while also rubberstamping its long- term future. “I think the teams have worked together and found great compromise and, during the course of the meeting, we signed an extension that puts seven years on the Resource Restriction Agreement, which further stabilises the sport,” said FOTA chairman Martin Whitmarsh. n Lewis Hamilton insists he will not change his approach to the final four races, despite crashing out of the last two races. Victory in Belgium a month ago resulted in Hamilton going to Italy three points ahead in the drivers’ championship, but two retirements later and he lies 20 points adrift with just four races remaining. When asked if he would change his approach to the final races, Hamilton replied: “No. I’m a racer. I always race my heart out, and nothing will ever change that.” n This weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix will feature a Kamui Kobayashi fan corner between turns 2 and 3 of the legendary Suzuka circuit, in celebration of the sport’s only permanent Japanese driver. Having joined BMW Sauber as a full-time race driver at the start of the year, Kobayashi will make his first trip to his home country as an F1 driver this week. The fan corner has 2000 seats, all of which have been sold out for some time, while other grandstands around the circuit are also expected to feature significant support for the 24-year-old.
