The FIA have updated the 2019 Formula 1 World Championship entry list ahead of the season opening Australian Grand Prix weekend which begins on 15 March at Albert Park in Melbourne.

Notable tweaks to the team names is that
Ferrari have discarded the Mission Winnow (aka Marlboro) from the Team name which is now simply: Scuderia Ferrari.

Alesi: “Leclerc grew up at Ferrari, he knows the environment well and does not have too much pressure because Binotto has ordained that he must follow the team’s orders and help Vettel.”

“He won’t challenge the number one role of Vettel but they will certainly be very close: the plan is that Vettel wins and Leclerc finishes second, the season is very long and 21 races are many.”

Neither Honda teams suffered major concerns in Spain but its F1 technical director Toyoharu Tanabe has admitted he was made "nervous sometimes" as new partner Red Bull and Toro Rosso got to grips with the 2019 product.

Tanabe told Autosport he was "not confident enough" with the progress that had been made, despite the manufacturer's best pre-season performance since returning to the F1 grid in 2015.

"We don't have a serious problem with the current installation, but we found some issues because of the tight packaging," said Tanabe.

"The shape was a little bit too aggressive, so we need to make it a little bit different.

"It's not a big concern."

The team from Grove were not only late for the test in Barcelona, but it also appears that Paddy Lowes car is illegal and must be changed before the first race in just under two weeks.

The FW42 has had a difficult birth, with TJ13 being told by insiders at the team that a big reason that the car was late happened to be some bad decisions made by upper managers last year when they tried to sack staff, the result of which backfired massively.

AMuS published a long run analysis. Here a summary, most of it is known by now I assume

-the margin of error is at around 7 tenths depending on which engine mode and fuel load was used, as mentioned race sims are less represantive this year than in the past
-teams can usually assume the fuel load based on best/worst case scenarios on the GPS (a quick final sector for example indicates less fuel), something journalists cant.
-Leclerc had the quickest race sim, 12 seconds ahead of Ricciardo, 19 ahead of Bottas, but he used 3 C2 tyres (using a different tyre in the first stint costed Bottas alone 9 seconds) and the last stint was approached in a way he wouldnt have approached it in reality. Keep in mind that Bottas/Leclerc did real race sims, Ricciardo went into the garage every time. While in theory this could mean that the stint is not representative (refuelling, setup changes etc) Mercedes was very impressed by Renault.
-Vettel and Hamilton are four tenths apart, but very hard to compare (Hamilton did a 4 stop race on three different compounds, something Vettel did in the first week as well)
-Red Bull is not appearing impressive which is weird considering that Verstappen looks confident (and he is usually a bad actor). His first stint was between Ferrari and Merc, his 2nd stint 0.2 s behind Bottas and 0.7 s behind Leclerc.
-Magnussen's race sim was great on the C2 tyres. 2nd stint was 0.2s off Leclerc and the final stint was fantastic. Car struggles with softer tyres though (see 1st stint) and team admits this as well. Steiner promises to improve and they have to since Melbourne will mostly be on C3/4.
-The soft tyres could generally be a issue this year, the C3 tyre is already having a lot deg in Barcelona. As always Red Bull seems the best on the tyres, while it appears like Mercedes has better tyre management than Ferrari this year. It seems like Ferrari prefered to have a quick car with which you can build a gap at the beginning and then just defend your lead.
-On long runs Alfa cant keep up with Renault and Haas. Toro Rosso is hard to judge. The first race sim was slower than McLaren, the second was the 2nd best but it was stopped after 36 laps. The truth is most likely somewhere between those two.
-Force India is better over the race distance than over one lap, but still 6 seconds shy of Alfa. McLaren improved in Week 2 but is in the race sim 20 seconds behind Alfa.
-Williams is disastrous. Over 4 minutes behind Leclerc, would have been lapped twice.

Summarizing Chandhok's & Anderson's observations from Barcelona:

SF90 looks more compliant and easy to drive esp. through changes of direction (2/3, 11/12 at Barcelona) than Merc, which is edgier
Vettel/Leclerc could carry more speed through corners compared to others. Vettel particularly impressive in speed carried through T9
Traction: imp. area in which SF90 appears to be as good as the Merc this testing (unlike previous years). Car accelerates well out of 4, 5, 12
Anderson: 1:15.9XX for SF90, Chandhok: 1:15.8XX theoretical best times
Reliability: bit of a question mark

Priminsiu, kad pernai Toro Rosso buvo labai aukstai vertinama bandymu metu, del i Mercedes panasios aero - prisiminkim cempionato rezultatus.
Red Bull nedare full race sim, kiek pamenu, ir vaziavo prisuktu motoru (tariamai), bet kazkokiu budu yra sugebanciu juos ivertinti long runuose lyginant su Ferrari ir Mercedes.
Kas relevant yra tai Leclerc ir Botto race sim palyginimas, nes abu tai dare ta pacia diena, jei neklystu, ir panasiomis salygomis. again niekas nezino PU ir kitu parametru.

dar karta pasakysiu, kad siemet kazkaip pasigendu tikslesniu long run analiziu - su ratu laikais ir t.t. viskas nusirito iki autosport/motorsport lygio, kur is esmes performance'as nusprendziamas pagal bolido isvaizda ir istorines gaires, which is very sad

Lowe was recruited to the team after he failed to reach a new agreement with Toto Wolff about extending his Executive Director role at Mercedes at the end of 2016.

Since that time Williams has parted company with chief designer Ed Wood, chief of aero Dirk de Beer and other high level engineering staff. Rob Smedley chose to leave his role as Head of Vehicle Performance at the end of last year, having given notice to do so during the summer break.

The ‘leave of absence’ wording is interesting and suggests a legal terminology, as the matter of his parting with the team was made more complex by his agreed shareholding. The story may not be quite finished yet, but Lowe will play no further role in the team’s operations. Conjecture puts Smedley’s name among those who could be recruited to assume Lowe’s role.

Kovo 07 d. 22:02

Smedley kartais negavo naujo darbo liberty?

Kovo 07 d. 22:13

Gavo, bet nelabai reiksminga, kaip suprantu.

Dar apie Williams:
Pirelli asked teams to build special "mule car" for 2021 tyre testing. Teams agreed that only Williams would be allowed to supply such a car. Engineers worried about unfair advantage. But with Williams apparently being far behind it would be okay.

I don't know how big the advantage really is and whether Mercedes would learn something from that. I don't even know, whether Williams is interested or has the means to build a mule car. I only know that Williams is the only team the other teams would be able to agree on.

Kovo 07 d. 22:18

Otmar Szaufnauer (Racing Point) doesn't expect quick performance gains due to bigger budget, as development of 2019 car had begun long before change of ownership. Money has been spent mainly for non-performance stuff like a new motorhome.

There’s a scary blame culture at Grove and good people like Paddy Lowe are the victims. It’s clear to anyone with a racing brain that Paddy, from the moment he left Mercedes, was keen to be much more than a Technical Director - that he was capable of running a team from the front, and that, in his initial discussions with the Williams board, he assumed he was going to be given that defining role in the company. His Williams roots, for Pete’s sake, go back to the late 1980s. Yet it never happened. Paddy was backed into the Job From Hell - into producing and developing an F1 car while living, day to day, in a political and financial jungle. Paddy’s not a mobster in the F1 sense of the word; he’s a racer with as much to give on the technical side as he does on the commercial and managerial. The easiest thing in the world is to point to the performance of the Williams car over the past two years and to single-out Paddy Lowe for dismissal. But to do do so is naive: it’s the people at the top who have let Williams down - and I don’t include Sir Frank in that. Poor decisions have been made right across the spectrum. It’s time to demist the mirrors in the executive toilets at Grove.

ne tetis pastate, o labiau Bernie su Toto - bent jau taip ji F1 podcaste pasakojo visa istorija - kai Toto traukesi is Williams, suorganizavo meeta su Bernie, sakydamas, kad del remimo, o meete kalba pasisuko apie vadovo pozicija. klausimas, kiek Frankas dar ten turi itakos

Kovo 08 d. 13:44

Dar vienas prabilo:
“I'm skeptical that Paddy Lowe is to blame for Williams being slow and late for testing.

With rumours that funding has fallen through from more than one source and the bizarre claim that they only knew 3 days before testing that they'd miss day one..

Something deeper is wrong.”

Kad viskas deeper, tai ir "loshadi poniatno". Ir kad remejai pabirejo i visas puses, tas irgi, turbut, ne paslaptis.
Elementari aritmetika sako, kad is 185 mEUR biudzetu 2018, simet turim:

- minus 15.5 (Martini)

Taigi, grubiai puse biudzeto - out.

Ar atnese Rokit ir Orlen tiek pat? Speju, max apie puse visko.

Tai turim best case scenario, kad siu metu biudzetas yra Haas/FI lygio, o gal ir mazesnis (t.y. maziausias is visu).

Peržiūrėjau Formula 1 – Drive to Survive (Netflix dokumentiką apie 2018 F1 sezoną). Pasidalinsiu įspūdžiais čia. Be jokių spoilerių.

Ferrari ir Mercedes atsisakė dalyvaut dokumentikoj, tai jie labai fragmentiškai paminimi ir visiškai nesijaučia jų kovos šitam sezone. Iš visų nedalyvavusių oficialiai daugiausiai dėmesio Kimi gauna, kur yra kelios oficialių interviu iškarpos. Nėra nė vieno interviu su 2019 metais nevažiuojančiais pilotais – Sirotkin, Vandoorne (na, yra šiek tiek), Hartley, tiesa, Alonso gana nemažai yra, kaip ir Ocon, bet už tai labai minimaliai pakalbinti Norris ir Russell, bet nei Kubica (yra vienas kadras, kuriame jis yra), nei Albon, nei Kvyat nėra. Šitų nėra, spėju, nes paskelbti jie gana vėlai buvo. Ir, gana didelis dėmesys skirtas Haas, visgi amerikiečiai kūrė, amerikiečių kanalui.

Šiaip įdomu pažiūrėt, bet jei atidžiai sekėt 2018 metų sezoną, tai pastebėsit, kad režisierių naratyvas kiek skiriasi nuo objektyvaus sezono vystymosi. Matosi, kur režisieriai (ar režisierius, nesigilinau, kas ten režisavo, sorry) nori sudėt akcentus ir kurt savo istoriją. Tai tas kartais mane erzindavo, nes atrodo, kad vietom stengėsi išpūsti burbulą, ar akcentuoti dalykus, kurie nėra tokie jau ir svarbūs. Bet čia kiekvienas savaip suinterpretuos. Kita vertus, galima čiut čiut įkišt nosį į komandų virtuvę.

Ir taip, jeigu nežinojot, dokumentikoms taip pat rašomas scenarijus, tik scenarijus montuojamas iš realiai įvykusių faktų + pokalbių, kurie irgi pamontuojami bei rodomi vieni ar kiti režisierių pasirinkti žmogaus charakterio bruožai. Kam įdomu apie manipuliacijas televizijoj pasižiūrėkit Charlie Brooker Screenwipe – Youtube visi epizodai sudėti. Nesakau, kad ten irgi viskas labai objektyvu, bet apie televizijos virtuvę nemažai papasakota, kas galioja ir šitam Netflix reikalui.

Kiek girdėjau, tai Liberty spaudžia 2019 metais dalyvaut ir Ferrari su Mercedes, nes be jų, tikram fanui, šita dokumentika tikrai prėska. Ir, pabaigai, kaip pramoga visai įdomi, prieš prasidedantį sezoną pats tas prisiminti, kas buvo pernai. Be to, Netflix 30 dienų galima išbandyti nemokamai ;)

“The team is dead, I do not see anything there… There is simply no management,” declared Villeneuve in his worst rant about the team since he took on Lance Stroll for his poor performances late last year.

Villeneuve references the family feud that ultimately led to Claire Williams being made the heir apparent to Sir Frank Williams’ in the role as team principal, chosen over her brother Jonathan Williams who now runs the heritage side of the business.

At the time it is believed Sir Frank did not trust that Jonathan had the chutzpah to run the Formula 1 team. In retrospect it appears to be a bad call, now in a time of trouble, he may end up being their saviour.

Villeneuve made no secret of where he believes it all went wrong, “There was an alternative back then: one of the two would be heir and they chose Claire instead of Jonathan – a big mistake, you just have to look where the team is today. ”
