Someone's butthurt about the end of this season.Ferrari win constructors and Alonso wins the WC. /thread
Permission to say cock.I anticipate some of the more established teams going back to the 2009 designs and improving on them, rather than using the 2010 cars as a starting point. This years vehicles were very highly adapted to the blown and double diffusers, F-Ducts etc, Whereas the start of 09 cars were not.
autosport.comNico Hulkenberg will not race for Williams in Formula 1 next season.
The 23-year-old German, who clinched his maiden pole position in Brazil a week ago - the team's first in five years, announced this morning that he will leave the team.
"I heavily regret that," Hulkenberg said in a statement. "I would have been happy to stay with Williams.
"I want to thank the team for a great time and I wish Williams all the best for the future."
Hulkenberg's manager, Willi Weber, says he is in discussions with other F1 teams and is sure that Hulkenberg will have a drive next season.
"I am negotiating with other teams," Weber said. "Nico will have his seat in F1 in 2011."
But Hulkenberg's options appear to be limited - with Vitaly Petrov set to renew his deal with Renault, Force India and Lotus could be his only possible destinations. The other option is to spend a year as a reserve driver with another team before stepping up to a race seat in 2012.
AUTOSPORT understands Williams was looking to sign Hulkenberg to a multi-year deal that would have placed him with the HRT team for the 2011 season, which the German declined.
I think McLaren are smart enough to know that the MP4-24 wasn't exactly their finest moment. It had pretty damn good mechanical grip but that was it.Permission to say cock.
