No, but I think they're adding a 'Team Orders' section on the second straight.

Is that the team order where the guy behind is told to hold station or the one where the guy in front is told that Fernando is faster than you?

Almost every track on the F1 calendar this year will have two DRS zones

Monaco and Suzuka will be the only venues on this year’s calendar to have a single DRS zone.

I went to the Chinese GP 3 years ago. You can see about 80% of the track because it's completely flat.

Ever since then, I just watch the broadcast on TV. It's too loud, there's too many people, traffic to/from is awful, and price for admission/food/goods is nuts.

Must be a sign that I'm getting old. Love my reclining Sofa.

As far as the second DRS, seems like we will hear more news on Wednesday or Thursday before the P1 session.

I wonder if FIA's central datalink for car dashboard display (assist lighting for blue flags, yellow warning, and DRS monitoring) has been fixed.

There will be two DRS zones as expected.
FIA maps has yet to be updated. Stay tuned.

Christian Horner is suspending Vettel. Looks like Buemi will take his place.

Article was written on April 1st. Most likely an April fool's joke.

Rumor???

Helmut Marko said that Team Orders will not come into play anymore, as advised by Team Owner Dietrich Mateschitz

How does Vettel feel about the incident now? I don't recall he's been asked since last race
