FIA president Alekos Kalogeropoulos confirmed that the Circuit Paul Ricard will host the French Grand Prix in an event hosted by the Fédération Française du Sport Automobile. The venue has signed a four-year contract with an opt-out clause for both sides after two seasons.

This confirmation came after earlier reports by f1rumours.net that the FFSA wanted to secure a second race in France for the short-term future. A major sponsorship package by Emirates Airlines was essential in securing the contract and the funding necessary to cover the Formula One hosting fees.

In an interview with Sky UK, the current Sauber driver Charles Leclerc talked candidly about his Sauber move, the disappointing 2022 season and his hopes for the 2023 season.

Leclerc claimed to not regret his move to the Swiss outfit. "Of course 2022 has been a poor year and with no upgrades coming, it will not be better," he said, "but I joined Sauber because they are a proven championship team. That performance will show itself next year."

He explained that he was "looking forward to 2023", having high hopes regarding his future with the team. He confirmed the rumour that the final two years of his four-year contract are dependent on a fifth-place WCC finish which he expects to come in 2023.

After years of rumours, and Audi or Porsche could be preparing to announce an entry into Formula One – the pinnacle of motorsport globally.

According to a new report from Autocar – which claims to have sighted a letter from Audi to motorsport's peak governing body the FIA – the German brand or its affiliate Porsche has preliminary plans to enter the category in 2026, but is still awaiting final approval from its parent company, the Volkswagen Group.

Following the British Grand Prix, Williams would like to make some personnel changes.

Sergio Sette Camara shall be re-deployed to being our Reserve Driver for the rest of this season, being released from the team at the end of the year.

Pastor Maldonado will be offered £2 million to race in place of Camara for the rest of Camara's contract (until the end of 2023).

f1rumours.net wrote:Daniel Ricciardo Negotating With Ferrari

According to sources in the paddock, former world champion Daniel Ricciardo has engaged with discussion for a 2023 drive with the Scuderia Ferrari. Ricciardo's camp was seen negotiating with Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto.

Earlier this year, Ricciardo mentioned a desire to return to Formula One and with the strong performance of Ferrari and the recent weak performance by Alexander Albon, the combination would certainly help both sides.

It is also rumored that a number of influential members of the Formula Committee have been moderating the negotiations, as many feel Formula One is lacking in star power with the charismatic former world champion being seen as such a star.
f1rumours.net wrote:Paris Race Doomed?

The 2022 Grand Prix d'Île-de-France held after the summer break is expected to be the final outing for the Circuit Charles de Gaulle after the results of the second round of the 2022 French elections have become public. Both NUPES and Rassemblement National have criticized the Grand Prix as an "excessive waste" in the time of a national crisis.

While the contract for the Grand Prix is signed until 2027 with neither side having an out, a decision by the government to cancel the funding would pretty much leave FIA president Alekos Kalogeropoulos with no choice but to cut his losses, as any attempt at a legal challenge to maintain th contract would cause terminal damage in one of Formula One's most successful markets.

According to a source close to Kalogeropoulos, he expects that decision to be made within weeks rather than months and has begun more urgent negotiations with venues about a slot on the 2023 calendar. He is expected to give preferred treatment to European circuits, but there are willing buyers outside of the European mainland.
f1rumours.net wrote:Bridgestone Draws Online Hate, Long-Lasting Tyres "Boring"

The new Formula One tire supplier Bridgestone has drawn negative attention by fans and experts online, in particular under the Twitter hashtag #BridgestoneBoredom. Their harder tyres have resulted in a lower number of pitstops, usually only requiring stops when the weather conditions change or at particularly abrasive venues such as the Bahrain International Circuit.

"Pretty much once everyone has passed the Precisions," wrote one Facebook user, "there is no point to watching because unless the Ferraris explode, the order remains unchanged." A similar opinion was shared by former Formula One driver Jean-Maxime Bachot on twitter: "F1 teams don't need brains anymore, everything's easy with thos [sic] tyres. No strategy = No Fun @F1 #BridgestoneBoredom"

Rule Change + F1 News

Post by Klon »

This rule addition will become valid after the conclusion of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Old rule:
If any of the customer teams has had a motor contract with the same works teams for 5 or more consecutive seasons, 35 % of the motor price (rounded down to the next full half million) of that customer team's contract is added to the budget of the works team instead.
New rule:
If any of the customer teams has had a motor contract with the same works teams for 5 or more consecutive seasons, 35 % of the motor price (rounded down to the next full half million) of that customer team's contract is added to the budget of the works team instead. Should a works team spend less money during the development system than it received on account of this rule, the difference will be taken from the budget of the works team (rounded up to the next full half million) and split equally among all customer teams under contract (rounded up to the next full half million).

f1rumours.net wrote:The Canadian Grand Prix Returns in 2023

An announcement by the city of Montreal confirmed that the Canadian Grand Prix will return to the Formula One calendar for 2023. As the International Speedway Corporation has failed to find sufficient American sponsorship for the United States Grand Prix it will sell its right to host a Formula One Grand Prix to the Canadian city.

According to the statement, the city of Montreal and associated businesses will take on 80% of the hosting fees. In exchange, NASCAR becomes the title sponsor of the race and will feature a showcase event of the North American Motor Sports Association-promoted endurance series as part of the Grand Prix preliminaries.

The Formula Committee has not commented on the contract, but local media has already begun advertising the NASCAR Shop Grand Prix du Canada 2023 for June 4. With such advertisement being printed, it stands to reason there are no objections to the newest addition to the Fromula One calendar.
f1rumours.net wrote:Italian Grand Prix Moved to September

In a mail send out by the Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello to fans who have purchased a ticket, the circuit informed fans that the decision was made to move the Italian Grand Prix to September 11, the previous date of the canceled Russian Grand Prix.

The mail informs fans that they may be re-funded if they are not capable of attending that weekend. Any such cancellation would entitle fans to buy tickets for the 2024 Italian Grand Prix ahead of schedule.

Motor Development + Team Owner Vote

Alright, it is now time to begin work on the hydrogen fuel cell motors for the 2022 season.

For that purpose, you send your testing team out for two testing days (respectively two for the weeks after the Hungarian and Île-de-France Grands Prix) and have them work on one of four things: motor power, which is the base BHP output of the motor; qualifying mode, which describes how much quicker your motor can go if fuel consumption is raised to the maximum; car failure probability, which states how likely it is for your motor to blow up or adversely affect other parts of a car and motor mass, which is the weight of your motor and how it negatively affects cornering speed.

To see how that looks in detail, I have provided this handy graphic. To reflect previous design philosophies, teams were granted four levels based on their current motor:
Image

Basically, you can add two "levels" every Grand Prix from now on (except after the season finale, where you will be able to add four levels (we'll get to that after the Chinese Grand Prix)). Each test day costs €1,000,000. Regardless of how many test days you use, you must have at least Lv. 1 for every aspect before the beginning of next season.

You are free to write in-character reports on your testing prowess without any limitation except maybe common sense. Those in-character reports will not affect driver ability or future RNG odds.

------------------------

FIA president Alekos Kalogeropoulos has invited the 12 team principals and representatives of the 13th team (ooc: I mean miguel98) to a meeting on August 20 regarding two key issues.

Topic A - Bridgestone Tyres
Formula One fans have been complaining about some boring races caused by the fact that Bridgestone's 2022 tyre suffers from significantly less wear than their former Continental counterparts. It is in particular complained that there are fewer pitstops mixing events up and that there is little strategy left in the sport unless the weather interferes with races or the surface is particular abrasive such as in Bahrain. Bridgestone is willing to do what they can to help, but their board of directors has been emphatic in refusing to produce intentionally overdegrading tyres. Therefore, the Formula Committee has drawn up three options

Option A: No Changes - while some fans have complained, more than enough are happy with the racing as it currently is.

Option B: Mandatory Pitstops - to add the spice of pitstops to the mix, an old rule from the early two-race format is adapated and cars must make two pitstops per race.

Option C: Qualifying Tyre - Bridgestone would be willing to supply an ultrasoft qualifying tyre that would only last around 30 km at race speeds. An additional rule change forcing cars to start on the tyre they set their best qualifying lap on would ensure pitstops around lap 4-6 at every race.

Topic B - Paris Replacement
While the official vote in the national assembly has not yet taken place, it is expected that the decision to cut state funding for the Grand Prix d'Île-de-France will be nearly unanimous. We have prepared an unofficial agreement with the respective officials that will let the FIA save and get us at least a few cents. However, the Formula Committee will have 19 Grands Prix as is agreed on with our commercial partners. Mr. Kalogeropoulos has four contract offers on his plate and wishes for the Formula One teams to decide which venue will be given the privilege. Regardless of which track is chosen, the date set for the first outing would be September 10, 2023.

Option A: Grand Prix Circuit of Zarqa (3-Year Contract) - while Mr. Kalogeropoulos has used an exit clause to abandon the track last time around, the royal house of Jordan still wants Formula One to return to increase touristic revenue. To entice teams to agree to this option the government, each current team will be given €6,500,000 as an immediate payment. The only risk is that the other Middle East venues have legal clauses that can block the addition. The chance of this happening is quite high (OOC: if this option has the majority, an RNG for the veto is run with the chance of a veto happening being set at 80%, which is why you will be asked to also pick Option B or D as a reserve).

Option B: Aftokinitodromio Serron (2+1-Year Contract) - based on the success of the Cyprus Grand Prix, Greek investors have arranged backing from the OTE Group, owners of Greek Formula One broadcasters Cosmote Sport for a race at the Serres Circuit and have promised each current team will be given €3,000,000 as an immediate payment. Skeptics on the Formula Committee have pointed out that the investors have little history of successful investment and that the OTE Group's backing is only guaranteed for 2023, but there is little risk of that posing a problem (OOC: if this option has the majority, there will be an RNG run after the 2024 race with a 20% chance of no prize money being awarded for that race)

Option C: Red Bull Ring (2+1-Year Contract) - while the Red Bull Ring still hosts the AutoGP Austrian Grand Prix, Red Bull's recent success has made Dietrich Mateschitz willing to spend on a Formula One race. The race would officially be the Sytrian Grand Prix because of trademark issues. The offer is time-limited, so if the vote decides to pick option A instead, by the time any potential vetos would be resolved, it would be off the table.

Option D: Hockenheimring (Rolling Contract) - an interesting fourth option has emerged. While a bit of the old post-2002 rebuild Hockenheim has been reforested, the majority of the old venue has been preserved as part of state cultural heritage management and would be available for sale at the right conditions. It would take quite a bit of money to purchase and restore the venue, amounting to a one-time payment of €4,500,000 per current team. However, Formula One teams could save a lot of money on hosting fees and traveling expenses for pre- and in-season tests (OOC: a session in the mid-season test would only cost €2,000,000, depending on game balancing considerations, costs for motor development could also be reduced). Instead of hosting fees, the Hockenheimring would finance itself by directly funneling all ticket expenses.

Topic C - Chassis Development
OOC: this is a purely advisory poll, its results are explicitly non-binding. The current chassis system is a system I like and want to go with for the foreseeable future (at least until the likely game switch for 2026), but I feel there is a risk that it will create an even bigger field spread if we get less lucky with the RNG rolls with teams like Sauber reflecting more realistically the expected performance of poorer teams. To solve that issue, I am considering replacing the formula of "number of engineers * 240 grip" for permanent employees with a logarithm formula. That would reduce field spread, but massively complicate the calculations for expected performance, making things (even) more complex for players. Therefore I would like to hear your opinions.

Option A: Keep the system as is
Option B: Use more complex formula for increased field equality
Option C: Keep the system and find other solutions for teams that are below a certain grip level to get closer to the pack

www.f1rumours.net wrote:Status of Belarusian and Russian Competitors for 2023 Cleared

During the same session of the World Motor Sport Council used to determine the final calendar for the 2023 season, new rules for Russian and Belarusian competitors in FIA world and continental championships were set, overriding the previous mixed rules that led to the entries by Rookie Racing for the German and British Grands Prix.

According to these new rules, which will be valid for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, Russian and Belarusian competitors can enter world championship competitions without needing to drive under neutral flag. However, in addition to any other entry documents required, competitors from these two countries must sign a separate waiver that would invalidate their FIA license(s) with immediate effect if they comment on any type of political topics to national or international media. Russian and Belarusian teams furthermore may not invite any non-racing personnel to the paddock of any world championship event. The national anthem of those drivers and teams will be played during podium ceremonies, but it left to the discretion of the hosting venue on whether the Russian or Belarusian flag is shown during the podium ceremony. The helmets of Russian and Belarusian drivers may not contain any references to the flag of their country of origin.

Continental series may either follow the rules of world championship competitions or can choose to exclude Russian and Belarusian competitors. The choice on which method is chosen will be undertaken by the respective race directors before December 1, 2022 and, like all rules of this nature, would apply for the 2023 and 2024 seasons. Series at the regional, national or lower are unaffected by these rules and can choose their own approach within the "organisational conduct expected of FIA members".
www.f1rumours.net wrote:Andretti Looking For Veterans?

According to an high-ranking employee of a major race driver agency, the new AndrettiF1 team is looking to build their new Formula One outfit around two veteran drivers with little consideration being given to younger talent.

"They said "If your drivers are below 30, don't even bother calling us"," the employee told www.f1rumours.net, "it's refreshingly blunt. Still, we would have expected them to bring in at least one young driver."

Members of the Andretti family were not available for comment and a media spokesperson merely commented that the drivers for AndrettiF1's debut season will be "confirmed ahead of the 2023 season start".

Let us continue work on the hydrogen fuel cell motors for the 2022 season.

For that purpose, you send your testing team out for two testing days (respectively two for the weeks after the Hungarian and Île-de-France Grands Prix) and have them work on one of four things: motor power, which is the base BHP output of the motor; qualifying mode, which describes how much quicker your motor can go if fuel consumption is raised to the maximum; car failure probability, which states how likely it is for your motor to blow up or adversely affect other parts of a car and motor mass, which is the weight of your motor and how it negatively affects cornering speed.

To see how that looks in detail, I have provided this handy graphic. To reflect previous design philosophies, teams were granted four levels based on their current motor:
Image

Basically, you can add two "levels" every Grand Prix from now on (except after the season finale, where you will be able to add four levels (we'll get to that after the Chinese Grand Prix)). Each test day costs €1,000,000. Regardless of how many test days you use, you must have at least Lv. 1 for every aspect before the beginning of next season.

You are free to write in-character reports on your testing prowess without any limitation except maybe common sense. Those in-character reports will not affect driver ability or future RNG odds.

We would like to offer George Russell a six-year contract extension as a race driver.

For 2023 we will pay him £750,000
For 2024 we will pay him £1,000,000
For 2025 we will pay him £1,250,000
For 2026 we will pay him £1,500,000
For 2027 we will pay him £1,750,000
For 2028 we will pay him £2,000,000

However, we do not want to stifle his opportunities for development. He will retain the option to leave the team if he receives an offer from a team that has won a WDC or WCC within the preceding 24 months of the offer. To break the contract, our team would require a payment from the signing team, equal to or greater than the sum of the remaining payments on George's contract.

We look forward to working together for the years to come

www.f1rumours.net wrote:Audi to Develop Formula One Motor for 2024

In a press conference, the Volkswagen Group presented a visual prototype of a Formula One hydrogen fuel cell system, confirming their entry into Formula One with their Audi brand from the 2024 season onwards. Markus Duesmann, current CEO of the Audi AG, stated his belief that long-term, Audi can win in Formula One. Despite his confidence, he tempered expectations, saying that he did not expect Audi to win from the word "go". With this move, the Volkswagen Group will have brands in two of the three major open-wheel racing series along with Bentley's continued participation in AutoGP. Duesmann explicitly confirmed that Bentley's participation in AutoGP will not be affected.

The working prototype will first see track action later in this month. Until a partnership with one of Formula One's current teams is formed, the company will use the Bridgestone mule car designed by Dallara the company used in its testing before re-joining Formula One. Testing will be done by Audi works driver Frank Stippler and former Formula One driver Antonio Giovinazzi at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo. By not partnering with a Formula One team for testing, Audi is not subject towards any testing limitation until 6 months before the last race of the season before their debut season. Audi expects to announce a partnership with a team on the Formula One grid before the start of the 2023 season.
www.f1rumours.net wrote:Dave Cassidy Signing Expected Soon

According to a close relative of Dave Cassidy, the American driver is expected to soon announce a return to the Formula One grid in 2023. He is in "intense negotations" with "some works teams". Given as MRT is the only works team to have their complete line-up confirmed for next year, there are a number of options for Cassidy.

Even a return to Ferrari has come up, with people close to Mattia Binotto saying that "he is talking to everyone right now" since Alexander Albon's performance in his second Ferrari season is falling well short of expectations. No team was available for comment on the subject.
www.f1rumours.net wrote:A Second Grand Prix for Argentina?

Documents leaked from Massalin Particulares S.A. confirmed that the Philip Morris Int. subsidiary is looking to arrange a business deal with the Formula Committee and the Autódromo de Buenos Aires Oscar y Juan Gálvez. The goal is to bring a Formula One race to the historic circuit that has hosted the season opener five times.

As the Autódromo Roberto José Mouras is under contract with no outs until 2025, with a two-year option for the track for 2026 and 2027, this agreement would only be possible in form of a second race in Argentina. With the popularity of the La Plata race with both local fans and streaming viewership, some experts consider a second race economically feasible.
