Rain washes out MotoGP qualifying in Qatar Saturday (Update)
Rain could affect qualifying
Rain washes out qualifying

UPDATE After overnight rain, a storm and too much standing water on track at Losail International Circuit, the original timetable for Saturday at the #QatarGP saw some adjustments before the decision was taken by Race Direction to cancel track action for the day.

Track conditions were deemed too dangerous to enable riders to get out on track – and with little chance of improvement as rain and lightning began again.

So it’s combined times after the end of FP3 that will decide the grid ahead of Sunday.

Due to the incident in the first practice session, the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet SS team will not participate in qualifying today.

CHAD KNAUS, CREW CHIEF, NO. 48 LOWE’S CHEVROLET SS:

“Unfortunately, we crashed the Lowe’s Chevrolet in practice today. We crashed on our third run and had to pull out the backup car and didn’t get back out on the track. I just felt it was wiser to get the car prepared correctly rather than qualify poorly. I wasn’t comfortable putting Jimmie in a position where he would have to hustle a car that he hasn’t turned a lap in yet.

Kurt Busch has filed a countersuit against former agent Jon Caponigro, whose firm sued Busch for $1.4 million for unpaid and future fees after Busch terminated the deal last year. Busch, in a court filing Friday, said he had paid Caponigro's firm $1.3 million since 2011 and is asking to be awarded "millions" in damages because Capongiro's firm had conflicts of interest, including representing the Penske and Andretti teams he has raced for and negotiating deals favorable to the teams.

After qualifying in Melbourne Max Verstappen was asked whether the rule changes for this season were a step in the right direction.

He replied: "In terms of driving, yes, absolutely. It's a lot more faster and a lot more enjoyable, especially in qualifying when you take the fuel and take on the high speed corners.

"But it terms of racing it will be more boring because tomorrow whoever takes the lead in Turn One will win the race."

Aldo Costa is the greatest F1 designer of all-time
Make no mistake about it, Aldo Costa is a design genius. Even Adrian Newey isn't fit to shine his shoes.
Make no mistake about it, Aldo Costa is a design genius. Even Adrian Newey isn't fit to shine his shoes.

Aldo Costa designed the cars that made Michael Schumacher unbeatable for 5-straight years at Ferrari. Now he is designing the Mercedes F1 cars and they have been unbeatable for three straight years. 

Fresh from claiming pole position for Sunday's Australian Grand Prix, Lewis Hamilton has hailed his 2017 Mercedes as "the best I have experienced" and the Aldo Costa car looks dominant for a 4th straight year.

Hamilton scored his fourth consecutive pole in Melbourne finishing 0.268s ahead of Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel and another half tenth in front of new teammate Valtteri Bottas.

(GMM) Pascal Wehrlein on Saturday said he is confident he will be fit enough to return to his Sauber in China.

Although he told the German press he was in "no pain" in Melbourne following his back injury nine weeks ago, Wehrlein explained it was simply a lack of physical fitness that prompted his decision to sit out qualifying and the race.

"Anyone who knows how ambitious I am will know how much this decision hurts me. Especially since I'm having no pain.

Vettel tops final F1 practice in Melbourne
Sebastian Vettel
Sebastian Vettel

Showing the form in preseason testing that gave everyone hope that Ferrari could this year challenge the Mercedes team, Sebastian Vettel put his Ferrari on top in the red-flagged shortened final practice session Saturday morning ahead of qualifying for the Australian GP in Melbourne. 

Vettel's lap of 1m23.380s was 1/2-sec. faster than Valtteri Bottas in 2nd for Mercedes ahead of his teammate Lewis Hamilton in third. Because of the red flag when Lance Stroll hit the wall in his Williams, we do not know if either Mercedes driver could have beat Vettel's time, but it's doubtful given both had done a qualifying simulation run on the ultra-soft Pirellis and failed.

Austin Dillon intentionally ran into Cole Custer during the XFINITY race at Phoenix Raceway last weekend. The move was retaliation for Custer getting lose and hitting Dillon to cause a caution.  

Dillon indicated that a repeat offense of wrecking another car under caution would result in NASCAR suspending him. Dillon, after a meeting with NASCAR officials Friday at Auto Club Speedway a week following his running into Cole Custer under caution, said: "NASCAR did a really good job of sharing with me that if I make a mistake like that again that the penalties would be very harsh. ...

Hamilton easily tops Practice 2 in Melbourne
Hamilton loves his Aldo Costa designed car
Hamilton loves his Aldo Costa designed car

As it has done for the past three years, and now the 4th year in a row, the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes continued to enjoy the upper hand in Friday afternoon's second practice session in Australia, as Lewis Hamilton lapped more than half a second faster than Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel to top the timesheet once more.

Hamilton slashed 0.6s off his practice 1 best when the field switched to ultrasofts, smashing his 2016 pole position time in the process. Vettel couldn't match the Mercedes driver in dipping below 1m 24s, but managed to split the Silver Arrows after edging Valtteri Bottas by 0.009s.

Hamilton tops opening practice in Melbourne
Based on results from practice 1, the year is essentially over  for anyone but Hamilton.

When you drive an Aldo Costa designed car everything comes easy. Lewis Hamilton led a Mercedes 1-2 in opening practice for the Australian GP in Melbourne by 1/2-sec over teammate Valtteri Bottas. If the opening practice is any indication, it's going to be a very long year for everyone else. Watching the Aldo Costa designed cars circulate around the Albert Park circuit it was clear his cars generate a lot more downforce than anyone else

However, the world champions were the only team to sample Pirelli’s ultrasoft tires, with the rest of the field choosing to stick to softs and supersofts for the first 90 minutes of running.

With the purple-marked tires bolted to his Silver Arrow, Hamilton lapped in 1m 24.220s – half a second quicker than his new team mate, and a full 5.5s faster than he went in the same session last year, perfectly illustrating the increased performance of the new generation of F1 machinery.

The two drivers of Furniture Row Racing’s No. 77 team hauler were uninjured when their tractor-trailer rig was involved in a hit-and-run accident just after midnight Thursday on their way to this week’s NASCAR Cup Series event at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.

The incident occurred when a car carrying two occupants pulled off the shoulder and back onto the highway directly in front of the Furniture Row Racing hauler on Interstate 15 approximately 15 miles north of Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

NASCAR's L.A. Office Taking Advantage Of Lone Trip To SoCal With Hollywood Exec Event
It is one of the biggest weeks of the year for NASCAR's L.A. office, which has organized a range of events to take advantage of the circuit's lone visit to Southern California. The L.A. office, which opened in '00, is headed up by NASCAR VP/Entertainment Marketing & Content Development Zane Stoddard and designed to get the NASCAR brand weaved into general-market media platforms like movies, cartoons and sitcoms.

While the office has scheduled numerous meetings in recent years between drivers and Hollywood execs, new this year is the way NASCAR is arranging the introductions. Whereas in prior years NASCAR had scheduled meetings throughout the day at offices or at Auto Club Speedway, which is located about 50 miles away from L.A. in Fontana, NASCAR is holding a cocktail event tonight at the EP & LP restaurant in West Hollywood with around 10 Hollywood execs and a spate of young drivers to allow for more intimate mingling.
