F1 Scouting Miami Locations For Potential Future Grand Prix (Update)
The Miami Formula E race lasted 1 year and died. We predict an F1 race on the streets of Miami will NEVER happen
The Miami Formula E race lasted 1 year and died. We predict an F1 race on the streets of Miami will NEVER happen. Too congested

UPDATE (GMM) Miami is emerging as a possible destination of a second US grand prix in the near future.

With Liberty Media now owning F1's commercial rights, the coastal city in Florida has been mentioned as a potential venue of a street race by the likes of Chase Carey and Ross Brawn.

Now, the local Miami Herald newspaper claims that "executives and engineers" working for F1 including Sean Bratches were in the city last month to scout locations and meet with the mayor about a potential race for 2020.

Santander to leave Ferrari (2nd Update)
Santander on Ferrari's back wing
Santander is leaving F1 altogether

UPDATE This rumor is now upgraded to 'fact' - Santander is gone and they are now joining McLaren either. Santander has terminated its partnership with Ferrari, and Formula 1 as a whole, after signing a new sponsorship deal with the UEFA Champions League.

Spanish banking group Santander has supported Ferrari for the last eight seasons, and has worked with Formula 1 over the last 11 years.

But it has now chosen to move on to football's Champions League, agreeing terms from next season (2018/19) through to 2020/21. 

"Santander's partnership with the UEFA Champions League, the world's most global and aspirational sporting competition, builds on our support of Libertadores and, more recently, Racing Santander, the local football team of the Cantabrian city where our bank was founded 160 years ago," commented Banco Santander Executive Chairman Ana Botin.

Coors Light to dump NASCAR
Is Mark Miles asleep at the wheel or will IndyCar offer Coors a much lower price to snare them from NASCAR?
Is Mark Miles asleep at the wheel or will IndyCar offer Coors a much lower price and snare them from NASCAR? They won't bite if races remain on cable TV. It's the ratings stupid.

MillerCoors and NASCAR have not yet been able to reach an agreement to extend Coors Light's official beer deal with the sanctioning body that expires this year, according to sources. That makes a renewal look increasingly unlikely as the sport's offseason begins.

Coors Light has been the official beer of NASCAR since '08 when it replaced Budweiser in a five-year deal that was originally valued around $4M annually. The deal was renewed in '12.

While the sides maintain that they have not stopped negotiating and that a last-ditch save of the deal thus remains possible, sources said that NASCAR and MillerCoors have not been able to find a suitable arrangement to move forward despite negotiating for months after the brewer sought to renegotiate terms of a possible extension.

Ferrari to quit F1? (2nd Update)
Ferrari gets beat year in and year out by Aldo Costa's Mercedes, and could see profit swell if it quits F1 and saves face
Ferrari gets beat year in and year out by the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes, and could see profit swell if it just quits F1 and saves face

UPDATE Ferrari is on track to gain about $132 million in profits annually if it pulls out of Formula One according to analysis of its latest filings.

Earlier this month Ferrari’s chairman Sergio Marchionne sent shock waves through the sport when he revealed that the Italian marque is considering pulling out after 67 years of racing. Ferrari’s contract expires at the end of 2020 when F1 is expected to introduce a new engine and balance the prize money payments to teams. It has fueled Ferrari’s concerns.

Marchionne said that F1 "has been part of our DNA since the day we were born. So it’s not as if we can define ourselves differently. But if we change the sandbox to the point where it becomes an unrecognizable sandbox, I don’t want to play any more."

Mercedes to switch to high-rake car for 2018
What will Aldo Costa decide when he designs the 2018 Mercedes? Whichever way he goes the car will make Lewis Hamilton F1 champion again.
What will Aldo Costa decide when he designs the 2018 Mercedes? Whichever way he goes the car will make Lewis Hamilton F1 champion again. That is what Aldo Costa cars do.
Mercedes is investigating running a high-rake design for its 2018 Formula 1 car in a bid to overcome the 2017 version’s ‘diva’ behavior.

The Silver Arrow has struggled for consistent balance from its long-wheelbase W08 this year, dominating at high-speed tracks but battling at tighter circuits.

While the wheelbase plays a part in that form, Mercedes believes that other factors have been more significant in influencing its performances.

One area being evaluated is whether or not it should pursue the high-rake concept put to good use by Red Bull.

Mercedes was spotted making major changes to its suspension set-up in Brazil last weekend, which could have been related to trials of the high-rake concept.

Third IndyCar engine manufacturer
If you hear any rumors or talk about a third engine manufacturer coming into IndyCar you can immediately dismiss them as false.

We recently heard someone suggest Hyundai and we had to laugh. Why would a manufacturer spend all that money on an IndyCar engine program with the minuscule exposure the IndyCar TV package delivers?

F1 could scrap 'two by two' race grid (2nd Update)
Would the F1 mental midgets really do a 2-3-2-3 grid?
Today there is usually contact and 2 or 3 cars damaged with a 2-wide grid. Imagine the carnage with a 2-3-2-3 grid?

UPDATE A reader writes, I agree, it’s one of the dumbest ideas ever to change to a 2x3 grid. A clear indication that those in power really don’t have a good grasp on the sport, and may even see it as some type of circus where they can change part of an act in order to “wow” people.

So, we are basically going to intentionally create a situation where no car behind a 3 car row can get past the 3 car row on the start? Wow, talk about pretty much taking away most opportunities to pass any car in the row in front of you if you make a good start. Why? Well, if a car in the row behind any 3 car row makes a good start, to pass ANY car in front they will basically have to go four wide. How often do we see four wide passes in F1? Yep, next to never, but that’s what the F1 powers think will be a great idea to spice up what is arguably the most exciting thing to watch in all forms of motorsports, the standing start in F1.
