Jorge Lorenzo
After a CAT scan, Repsol Honda Team and Jorge Lorenzo have confirmed via social media that the number 99 rider has suffered a fissure to the first rib on the right side.

The five-time World Champion suffered a nasty highside at Turn 6 in FP3 and despite being declared fit for the rest of the weekend, a scan on Tuesday revealed his most recent injury setback.

The injury will take three to four weeks to heal, with Lorenzo vowing to fight at the Argentina GP, which takes place in just over two weeks’ time.

IndyCar St. Petersburg GP TV Rating (2nd Update)
Sunday’s start
Sunday’s start

UPDATE We inadvertently left off the TV rating for the St Petersburg GP, previously only providing the number of viewers.  It has been added.

03/12/19 The final TV rating for the St. Petersburg GP on NBCSN fell from an overnight of 0.38 to a final of 0.32, down 60.5% from last year's final on ABC.  However, the bad news, and it is really really bad, is that only 82,000 in the all important 18-49 year old category tuned in, down 68% from last year on ABC.  The good news is that hardly anyone saw the 13 minute gaffe when NBCSN lost the video feed from St. Petersburg. 

82,000 in the important age group is a horrific number, but that is what we have seen for years on NBCSN. Things are not getting better on NBCSN (a station hardly anyone watches), and we can only hope the numbers look better on NBC.  The following table gives you the historic IndyCar TV numbers that AutoRacing1.com maintains for its customers.

Ferrari livery minus the Mission Winnow logos
Scuderia Ferrari has unveiled the revised livery that it will run at this weekend's season-opening Australian Grand Prix.

Ferrari plans to run Philip Morris International's Mission Winnow brand in 2019.

However, an investigation from Australia's health authorities into the legality of the branding and its compliance with anti-tobacco advertising laws prompted the Scuderia to discard the Mission Winnow logo from its car and all team kit, and this avoid the risk of any legal troubles in Melbourne.

NASCAR Phoenix TV Rating (Update)

Michael McDowell's car on the hook

UPDATE The final TV Rating for the Phoenix Monster Cup race on FOX was a 2.86 with 4.794 million total viewers and 1.073 million viewers in the all-important 18-49 age group. Compare NASCAR's 1.073 million in the 18-49 age group to IndyCar's 82,000 on NBCSN. NBCSN numbers send sponsors heading for the exits. IndyCar made a potentially fatal decision not putting 100% of its races on free over the air NBC.

03/11/19 Fox TV earned a 2.8 overnight rating for yesterday's Ticket Guardian 500 NASCAR Monster Cup race at ISM Raceway, up 4% from a 2.7 for last year's race, but down 6.7% from the 2017 3.0 overnight rating.

Solid First Steps for Hanley and DragonSpeed in IndyCar Debut
Ben Hanley
Ben Hanley
Globetrotting sportscar racing team DragonSpeed launched its 2019 NTT IndyCar Series program with a solid finish in the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg. On his IndyCar debut and first single-seater race since 2010, British driver Ben Hanley claimed 18th place with a steady run, rewarding three weeks of intense effort by the DragonSpeed crew since taking delivery of its Dallara IR18-Chevrolet machine.

After each of its three practice sessions were cut short by technical issues, the 2019 Rolex 24 LMP2 class winners’ luck turned in qualifying. The team’s eagerness to try out the softer red-sidewalled Firestone tires allowed Hanley to set a fast time on his first flying lap before the session was interrupted by the first of two red flags, securing a surprise 12th starting slot on the 24-car grid.

Horner brings out his annual crying towel
The Red Bull crying towel
The Red Bull crying towel
It seems like Red Bull Racing threatens to leave Formula One at least once a season. When things might not go its way, the team starts to whine like babies. So far, those threats haven’t culminated in anything serious--but Red Bull is back at it again before the 2019 season has even started.

So, what is it this time? Red Bull is threatening that Formula One needs to “deliver” in order to keep them competing beyond 2021, according to Motorsport.com. What does that mean? In short, F1 is planning on doing things differently in the future, and Red Bull might catch the short end of the stick. 

Asked if Red Bull co-owner Dietrich Mateschitz could pull out of F1 if he's not happy with F1's plans for 2021 and beyond, Christian Horner told Motorsport.com: "Absolutely, and that's his right.
