Mosley… to be snubbed at the Monaco Grand Prix?? April 19, 2008

We’re always looking for F1 stories which make us smile or laugh which we can pass on to you. This was found on planetf1.com and made the Fugare F1 team chuckle, here is the full version courtesy of planetf1.com…

“Not The F1 News brings you all the stories that are patently absurd and could never happen…

There were renewed recalls for Max Mosley to resign last week when it was announced that the FIA president wasn’t going to face a jury of his peers until June 3rd. That’s June 3rd 2009.

Pope Likely To Black Flag Max
The bizarre and arcane world of the FIA has been revealed by the Von Mosleygate shenanigans. As a result of the focus brought on by Max’s Sex Shame vote on June 3rd we now know that the Vatican gets a say in who becomes the FIA chairman. It’s believed that the Pope is not a big fan of vice girls, dominatrices, flagellation, ‘Allo ‘Allo, voyeurism and sado-masochism. However the fact that Max shared a nice cup of tea with his hookers afterwards is said to be in his favour…

…though the fact that the Pope was at one time in the Hitler Youth perhaps doesn’t bode quite so well.

Prince Albert Stands Firm
The Automobile Club de Monaco is believed to be unhappy about the prospect of Max Mosley shaking the royal hand at the Monaco Grand Prix. Following the revelations in the News of the World about Max Mosley’s various sexual practices there is an outside chance that Max could have been touching a Prince Albert moments before touching Prince Albert.

Red Bull or Pepsi Max?
The hookers at the centre of the Von Mosleygate scandal revealed that at 67 Max was past his prime in terms of sexual endeavour. One of the girls said that the FIA president didn’t have the energy any more – which may explain why Max’s interest in energy recovery systems has been renewed after banning them a decade ago.

Max Makes A Beeline For Jordan
Despite making a huge fuss over the Lewis Hamilton racism incident at Barcelona during winter testing, the President of the FIA is not going to be present at the launch of his F1 Against Racism scheme at the Spanish GP. Instead it has been announced that he will attend the inaugural round of the Jordan WRC rally.

Max is going to join several spectators and 11,000 goats to watch the first ever Rally Jordan. There were expected to be around 16,000 goats, but 5,000 are boycotting the event because of the alleged Nazi links surrounding the FIA president.

And finally… Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has sent a letter of support to Max in his bid to cling on to power in the face of overwhelming public condemnation. An executive at the FIA said they were still considering the possibility of Zanu PF helping with the secret ballot on June 3rd.”

The Prince, the Olympic swimmer and the Monaco Grand Prix February 26, 2008

Prince Albert of Monaco could be forgiven for living life to the full and simply enjoying the trappings of life as Monaco’s Sovereign. But as he turns 50 the prince’s reputation is deservedly a more serious one amongst fellow world leaders.

The Prince doesn’t spend all of his time (only some of it!) in Monte Carlo’s casino and rubbing shoulders with Grand Prix pilots, actors and actresses, celebrities (some famous for nothing much at all, think Paris Hilton!) and the Principalities many multi millionaires, he is just as likely to be found trekking the North Pole or maing an impassioned speech about the environment at events in Europe and around the world.

In Monaco itself there are plans to increase it’s land mass with a new island off Monte Carlo ready in 2018. This will likely host a university, housing, a museum, new Monaco hotels and perhaps even an addition to the famous route for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Prince Albert balances a world of the Monaco Grand Prix, it’s casinos, yachts and glamour with the more serious topic of reducing Monaco’s carbon footprint, his objective being to make Monaco the world’s first carbon neutral country.

The focus could be on Monaco this year, not only for the Monaco Grand Prix, aka Monaco Formula One, but also because of rumours of the possibility of Prince Albert and former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock announcing their engagement.

Formula One is changing and it will affect all of the F1 races including our beloved Monaco Grand Prix.

“Whilst the regulators and rule makers dither (10 year/5 year/3 minute engine freeze? Energy recovery? Aero ban? A freeze on big hats?) trying to figure out which environmentally friendly rule, ridiculous or not, to implement next, over at Top Gear their is an article on driver racing…Prius!!

In Hong Kong Prius drivers are reprogramming their cars and competing in, yes…economy races.

Impressive sure, technically great sure, entertaining definitely! Would it work at the Monaco Grand Prix, Singapore GP, European GP or any other F1 race?

“Imagine a Formula One car of 2013 with a 2.4-litre V8 for some noise and thunder but only 100-litres of fuel per race and open rules governing where to get the rest from. Energy recovery? Solar? Get-out-and-push” – up Beau Rivage at the Monaco GP, we don’t think so?

“The racers will be forced to learn an entirely new technique (fuel management), and the egg-heads back in the F1 factories will be inspired to come up with new and exciting energy recovery/gathering technologies to supplement the fuel shortage.

Us motorists could even benefit from a trickle down of this tech, because let’s face it, how long before fuel rationing becomes unavoidable?” quotes reproduced courtesy of Top Gear

Happy New Year – Five Things To Look Forward To In F1 For 2008 January 3, 2008

Hello and Happy New Year to all Fugare F1 Friends and Colleagues – we wish you all the very best and every success for the coming year.

Whilst browsing some other blogs and websites for inspiration and thinking of things to look forward to for 2008 we uncovered the following and thought it said it as well as we could so…Courtesy of Andrew Davies from PlanetF1.com:

Five Things To Look Forward To In 2008

As 2007 ends and 2008 begins, we look forward to five good things that will happen in 2008, and five things that might rear their ugly heads

1. The absence of traction control

With the FIA imposing a single Electronic Control Unit for engine management in 2008, we can look forward to the true prospect of F1 without traction control and launch control. This will mean that grand prix starts will be able to throw up some big surprises when drivers get it wrong. It will also mean that drivers who are great at starting will make up shedloads of places on the opening lap. In the past few years the starts have been a battle of the teams’ respective software engineers. Not any more.

Similarly in the wet, drivers with the Schumacher-esque ability of being able to work out the maximum adhesion by taking their cars to the very limit and just easing off when the car starts to twitch, will have an edge over those who stick their foot down and let the electronics do the rest.

2. Formula 1’s first night race

One of the highlights of the year will be the Singapore GP raced at night. Street GPs are tremendous spectacles to witness, particularly at Monaco where the circuit is impossibly tight and close to the spectators, but having it at night will give it an extra edge.

Street circuits usually produce a high casualty rate (think the Monaco Grand Prix and Canada), so having it at night in the year when traction control is removed from the cars could produce a dramatic result. And just imagine if it rains…

3.The Valencia GP

For years Bernie Ecclestone wanted to break the Monaco Grand Prix monopoly as being the jet-setter’s grand prix, the place where the super-rich could park their yachts and big business could be done. He tried to line up Beirut as a possible venue, and a harbourside circuit was drawn up and promoted. In the wake of the country’s plunge into political infighting it’s probably a good job it never came off.

However with The Alonso Factor changing Spain from a country that didn’t show F1 live on television to one showing fanatical levels of attention, a Valencia Grand Prix became a possibility.

The city will be the home to the Americas Cup yacht race and so its harbourside facilities will be able to cope with all the new Russian billionaires who wanted to park their boats for the Monaco Grand Prix but couldn’t find a space.

4.The arrival of Nelson Piquet Junior

It will be great to see Nelsinho in F1 at long last (though thankfully not at the expense of Heiki Kovalainen). He is the latest son-of-a-World Champion to enter motorsport’s highest level following Michael Andretti (son of Mario), Damon Hill (son of Graham) and Nico Rosberg (son of Keke).

5. Ross Brawn back in the sport with Honda.

His new challenge at Honda will be to re-shape a team that made a massive mistake in getting rid of technical director Geoff Willis and re-focus its efforts. We won’t see massive progress in the first eight races, but it shouldn’t be as pitiful as last year.

And five things that might not turn out quite so well…

1. The return of Stepneygate With the Ferrari team pressing ahead with prosecutions in both Italy and England, Stepneygate won’t go away.

2. A Piquet Senior vs Alonso slanging match We’ve seen Fernando Alonso’s delicate ego battered over the course of the 2007 season, what he doesn’t need is a team-mate with a vituperative father that could undermine him.

3. More slagging off of Silverstone Bernie is right to point out that with a £12 billion London Olympics coming up for 2012, the British GP venue should get some immediate state support.

4. The championship turning into a one-horse race. With McLaren hampered by budget constraints and redesigns etc, there’s a worry that Renault, BMW, Honda and Williams could fail to challenge what is likely to be another strong Ferrari.

5. More remarkably stupid decisions by the stewards.

There are just nine months remaining before the SingTel Singapore F1 Grand Prix and pressure is building to find viewing locations and vantage spots around the track. Those looking to watch the race for free can forget it apparently!

Singapore Flyer – a 30-minute ride on the 165m wheel, which should offer views of the track, will cost between $23.60 and $69 when the Flyer opens in March and the night rides (8pm to 10pm) on the race days are likely to cost at least $200 each.

Managing director, Ms Patsy Ong, of Adval Brand Group the Flyer’s ticketing agent says ‘The area around the Flyer, F1 pit building and street circuit will be cordoned off during the race period. Those who want to visit the Flyer will have to purchase race passes from Singapore GP (the race promoter) to access the track-side.’

The Singapore Cricket Club (SCC) and Singapore Recreation Club (SRC) are in discussions as to whether their members will be able to watch the race from their premises.

A 50 year old businessman, member of both clubs, complained, ‘Why should members pay the race promoter if we want to watch it from our premises? It doesn’t make sense, the race is encroaching on our space.’

The chances of anyone getting free glimpses of the race are slim. Singapore GP’s executive director Michael Roche, stated ‘We need to ensure fans get maximum value from our range of daily or season passes. We will erect screening fences at appropriate heights to restrict any unauthorised views.’

The three-day F1 race, which aims to draw 240,000 visitors, can cost up to $150million to stage annually.

Renault confirm talks with Alonso for 2008 December 8, 2007

Brought to you by Fugare F1, booking now for the Monaco Grand Prix 2008. Packages from £995.

Renault sources confirmed have the team are in talks with Fernando Alonso regarding driving for the team in 2008. “We’re talking to Fernando,” said a team spokesperson. “But no conclusions have been reached from those talks.”

After a falling out with McLaren boss Ron Dennis and quitting McLaren only one third of the way through his contract, Alonso, the 26 year old former world champion currently has no team to drive for next season. It is believed Renault had been unwilling to commit to Alonso for next year until the risk of them being thrown out of the constructors championship for spying had abated.

The decision by the FIA in the home of the most prestigious of races, the Monaco Grand Prix, not to punish Renault has cleared the way for Alonso to negotiate a return to his former 2005 & 2006 world championship winning team. This is despite Renault being found guilty, much like McLaren were with Ferrari, of possessing technical data belonging to the other.
