Default Shocking F1 news

http://en.f1i.com/news/83361-breakin...rmula-one.html

Well I was blindsided!

This season was a great one, lots of ups and downs.

Maybe we'll see a new team dominating next season due to the changes in the cars?

I thought he was staying a Mercedes, I had not heard anything on his contract coming to an end or him shopping around. But Nico was still under contract, too.

I have to wonder if Mercedes' dominance will continue under the new rules package. There were years of Ferrari dominance followed by the Red Bull years, all of which preceded the recent Mercedes monopoly.

"Libertyís arrival in F1 has already resulted in the appointment of American businessman Chase Carey as the sportís new chairman, with an expansion of interests in the United States expected to follow."

This is interesting. Although I don't know where they would expand to here in the US? After seeing the Austin venue I can't think of too many other places that could accommodate something of that magnitude.

Future of British GP at Silverstone in doubt following leaked BRDC letter
By Luke SmithJan 7, 2017, 10:45 AM EST

"the Silverstone race is now at risk after John Grant, the chairman of the British Racing Drivers’ Club, wrote to its members regarding the “potentially ruinous cost” of persisting with the F1 race if it continued to make a loss. Part of Grant’s letter, which was published by ITV News earlier this week, stated that “even in a good year, the BGP [British GP] does not generate enough cash to cover its share of the site overheads”.

Should Silverstone stop hosting the race, it is difficult to see which other tracks in the UK could take over commitments for the British Grand Prix.
