Fulbeck-based Balfe Motorsport has unveiled its stunning new Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II in Autoglym livery – with which it will compete in the British GT Championship – in the shadow of local landmark Lincoln Cathedral.

The team has been a regular entrant in the series since the early 2000s, but 2022 will be the first season the team has fielded Audi machinery, having raced the car in Europe last year.

Getting behind the wheel will be Shaun Balfe and Adam Carroll, who have won four podiums and two pole positions as teammates in 2021.

Shaun has competed in a wide variety of series and cars over his career, ranging from Caterhams to GT1. He was British GT runner-up in 2003 and third (just five points from the title) in 2019, as well as the Spanish GT title in 2004 and the GT Open Pro-Am crown in 2017.

Balfe said: “I am very happy to be back home in the British GT Championship. We’re on a new adventure with the Audi R8 LMS GT3 that we raced in GT Open last year, so I can’t wait to show what we can do this year.

“Adam and I get on well and are a really good partnership. We really gelled last year and I’m sure we can move forward. British GT is a real Pro-Am series so we have to be competitive .”

Adam enjoyed success throughout his motorsport journey, including Formula Ford in the early 2000s, finishing second in British F3 in 2004, and was a test driver for the Formula 1 team BAR when racing in the GP2 series.

He raced in the DTM, IndyCar, GT1 World Championship and Formula E, while helping the Irish team win the 2008/09 A1 GP title and adding the Ferrari Challenge World Finals crown in 2019.

Carroll said: “Last season it was great to be back with Shaun and in a GT3 car. I think we have a really strong partnership and I really enjoy driving the Audi and working with all the members. of the team.”

“The British GT Championship is tough. If you look at who has driven in the series in recent years, there have been a lot of factory drivers and they haven’t been lacking in talent.

“We’ll do our best and hopefully we can win a few races and score some podiums along the way, and we’ll be chasing the championship.”

Newly updated for the 2022 season, the Audi R8 LMS GT3 Evo II takes another step forward in performance, based on feedback from race teams and drivers.

The car now generates more downforce via the aggressive-looking rear wing, making it a more comfortable experience for amateur drivers, while on the power side, the naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 engine features a new intake system that improves the torque curve.

The British GT Championship season opens with its traditional Easter weekend visit to Oulton Park in Cheshire, back on the calendar for the first time since 2019.

A second three-hour race will take place at Donington Park and a trip to Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium the week before the famous 24 Hours of Spa.

Balfe added: “The longer endurance races are really appealing and it will allow us to stretch our legs. It should be a lot of fun driving.

“I hope the doors will be open all year round for spectators, friends and family to support us, and we can put on a good show.”

Lewis Hamilton refuses to let controversial end to 2021 season ‘define’ his career

Lewis Hamilton is confident Mercedes can produce a car capable of winning him an unprecedented eighth world title.

After a controversial and heartbreaking loss at the end of the 2021 campaign in Abu Dhabi, Hamilton took a break from social media after admitting he was disappointed with F1.

Now the 36-year-old is back refreshed and eager to take part in the next campaign, where he will aim to make history and overtake legend Michael Schumacher as the most successful driver in the history of the sport.

The Silver Arrows will also be vying for a ninth successive constructors’ championship and the F1 icon is confident his team will fire on all cylinders again despite new regulations coming into force.

“Every year is exciting but this one is completely new,” said the Briton.

“Obviously I’ve seen the designs of our car, but it’s the first time you see the other teams on track.

“You want to get up close and see why others have taken a different path. You have no idea where you are, so that’s really exciting.”

All teams will have to adapt to a different set of regulations this coming season, with a new breed of F1 cars ready to hit the track, with pre-season testing starting in Barcelona today.

The new rules are designed to reduce the level of downforce on the cars with the intention of reducing the effect of dirty air in a bid to have more competitive racing.

The new campaign regulations aim to significantly simplify upper body aerodynamics.

This means less downforce from the tightly regulated front and rear wings, which are strictly prescribed in order to eliminate the overhang aerodynamics that have aggravated F1’s turbulence problems over the past decade.

In order to allow for better racing and eliminate the possibility of dirty air impacting overtaking, the aerodynamic phenomenon known as “ground effect” will help reduce “catastrophic downforce loss”. .

Commenting on the new rules, the seven-time champion said: “I really hope these rules allow for a tighter race. It puts everyone on a closer playing field.”

And when asked if he thought Mercedes might not be able to make a car worthy of him fighting for the world title in 2022, Hamilton was adamant in his response: “Why would I ever felt like this My team doesn’t make mistakes.

“Of course it’s a risk (with the new regulations) but I trust the team. Whether it’s good or bad, we’ll work on it.”

F1 2022 testing started earlier today and Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc is leading the way and was three-tenths quicker than McLaren’s Lando Norris.

Hamilton’s new Mercedes team-mate George Russell was third while defending champion Max Verstappen finished 2.1 seconds behind Leclerc.

The Briton, who is about to enter his 16th season in F1, took to the track for testing this afternoon.

Jost Capito isn’t looking for a team manager at Williams, there won’t be a number one this season, instead he wants Nicholas Latifi and Alex Albon to work together.

Williams have a new line-up this season, with Team Grove signing Albon as George Russell’s replacement after the Briton left to join Mercedes.

This is Albon’s third season in Formula 1, the Thai-British driver having started with AlphaTauri in 2019 before being promoted to Red Bull halfway through the championship.

The team retained him for 2020 but he was unable to deliver the results they wanted, with Red Bull dropping him from a reserve driver role the following season.

Latifi also enters its third year of racing, although its time on the grid has been uninterrupted.

He joined Williams in 2020 and scored his first world championship points last season, seven in total, en route to 17th in the Drivers‘ Championship.

But while Latifi has more experience with Williams, his team boss has ruled out making him the de facto number one.

“I don’t believe you need a leader with the drivers,” Capito said.

“They both have to be leaders because they have their team in the garage and they have to have the ability to work in an even bigger team, and here I’m saying both have those leadership abilities.

“If they work together, we should make progress this year.”

It is not the first time that Latifi and Albon have been teammates, the two having raced together in Formula 2 with the DAMS team in 2018.

That season Albon finished third, losing to 2018 champion George Russell and Lando Norris, while Latifi was P9. Both drivers have won at least one race placing DAMS third in the team standings.

“They were teammates in 2018 in Formula 2, so they work very well together, they respect each other a lot and at the stage where Williams is at the moment, it’s very important that we don’t have fights between the two sides. from the garage,” Capito added.

“Both will work for the team and not fight against each other and that is very important for us this season.”

But while Capito doesn’t want a team manager, Latifi says he’s eager to take on the role.

“Beyond driving, I really need to be in a leadership role,” he told The Race last month. “It’s a new car, a new start, the feedback will be crucial and it will be something new for me in F1 that I haven’t experienced yet.

“I have to embrace that leadership role and have confidence in my decisions, what I communicate to the team and the direction it’s going to go, because I think more than any year I’ve been in F1 and probably more than every year for a long time, it will be such an important aspect.

F1 driver George Russell’s message to Williams after Mercedes move

The 2022 F1 season awaits us with car launches and practice in the weeks to come following an exhilarating season between world champion Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.

The Briton is yet to confirm his status for the upcoming season with Mercedes, as George Russell is set to team up with the seven-time world champion after taking over from Valtteri Bottas, who left the Silver Arrows after five seasons to join Alfa Romeo.

Under the radar, Verstappen’s long-term future is high on Red Bull’s to-do list, with the Belgian-Dutch driver’s salary demands likely to skyrocket after winning his maiden world title.

But there is also uncertainty over the future of race director Michael Masi, whose decisions in Abu Dhabi will be debated for many years to come, and his status in the sport could influence Hamilton’s decision to return. Opinions are split, with Karun Chandhok saying Masi was ‘screwed’: “I think what happened was Latifi crashed and Masi had a choice, at that point you make a safety car or a red flag. He looked at the incident and thought, ‘this should be relatively quick to sort out.’ I think where he got it a bit wrong was that the brakes went caught fire on the car as they tried to run it off the track.

Here’s the latest news as the new season prepares for opening weekend in Bahrain on March 20. Follow all the F1 news updates below:

“I consider this a great success in the process. We are still at the start of the project and going through a transition season of working together on a car for a full year, but if we look back to where we started, this team is already a success.

The Kawasaki Racing Team will again compete in the FIM Motocross World Championship with a strong squad in the premier MXGP class, the 2022 series begins February 19-20 at Matterley Basin (UK).

2021 was an epic end to the season as three riders battled it out to the final round for the title and with the silver medal, led by the slimmest of margins, Romain Febvre gave Kawasaki their best result ever. the first MXGP class. The 30-year-old Frenchman will once again be the leader of KRT after signing a new two-year contract directly with the Japanese factory which will now be even more involved in the new project as the reins of the Kawasaki Racing Team pass. to Formula 1 legend Kimi Raikkonen and former Motocross Grand Prix winner Antti Pyrhonen.

Both have been involved in the sport for many years and are celebrating their tenth anniversary in MXGP this year. In fact, their first season together was on private Kawasaki machines and they are now back in “green” to lead the Factory Kawasaki Racing team assault with the full support of KMC Japan and KME. Englishman Ben Watson, longtime training partner of Romain Febvre, will enter his second season in the MXGP class after a solid year of learning in 2021; the young British talent is set to enter pre-season racing this weekend on the island of Sardinia and a week later in France.

Steve Guttridge (Race Planning Manager – Kawasaki Motors Europe – KME): “In October 2021, a new company and legal entity known as Kawasaki Motors Ltd – KMC was established in Japan to focus more directly on the Kawasaki motorcycle business, which includes our factory racing team projects . The new company and management will be strategically involved in using Kawasaki Racing Team’s MXGP racing business, as well as their own research and development in the MXGP arena more directly than in the past to bring innovations into the future KX production models for our worldwide customer base to use in their own racing endeavours. The Kawasaki Racing Team MXGP has a huge and complex role to fill; we believe the team will continue to help us make great strides towards our ultimate goal of becoming MXGP World Champion.

Kimi Raikkonen (Team Principal – KRT MXGP): “It’s no secret that for me one of my great passions in life for many years has been motocross, but this team is not what you might call a hobby. It’s very serious, very focused and we aspire to be the best we can be. Now that I have retired from racing, I will be able to devote more time to this project; not on day-to-day issues, but more from a strategic perspective using my experience of how teams work and what creates success on the global stage. Everyone, myself included, is thrilled that Kawasaki chose us to be the factory team. I know the chances of success are always greater with direct factory support, so this translates into a great opportunity for us as the new Kawasaki Racing Team in MXGP.

Antti Pyrhonen (Teammanager – KRT MXGP): “Since I joined Kimi’s team ten years ago, we have never stopped working hard to achieve the best results in the MXGP class and, after achieving good results with many victories and podiums , we now have the opportunity to work closely with a prestigious factory.. We have already been working on this new project for several months and of course we are delighted to have this opportunity to join Kawasaki and lead the Kawasaki Racing Team. The MXGP class is the pinnacle of our sport and we know how competitive the series is, but we look to this new challenge with optimism as we have two strong and fast riders to enter this new chapter with a factory behind us.

Romain Febvre: “It certainly hasn’t been my best winter since I started racing. It’s always frustrating recovering from an injury while your opponents are working on the slopes, but that’s the way it is; injuries are part of our sport. My recovery is going well and I can’t wait to get back on my Kawasaki. The championship will still be long and I will do my best to start the race as soon as possible. 2021 has definitely been a great season for me; I felt so comfortable on the KX450-SR and fought for the title until the very last round. Signing a two-year factory contract with Japan has been good for my confidence, and it’s another boost to be involved in the new project from day one.

Ben Watson: “There aren’t that many factory races in the MXGP class, so I’m very proud to have been selected by the Kawasaki Racing Team for my second year in this championship. It’s a new chapter in my career. and it’s great to work closely with Romain; we know and appreciate each other because we’ve trained together in the past. I learned a lot during my rookie season and I’m confident for the season to come because I’ve seen how strong the team is after sharing time together for a few months already, it’s really exciting to be part of this new challenge.

In short

Mercedes says it has drawn on the expertise of its F1 team to produce its latest electric road vehicle design with a claimed range of over 1,000 kilometers on a single charge.

Its Grand Prix and High Performance Powertrains divisions were consulted on the creation of the Vision EQXX, a four-seater concept car, which claims to consume less than 10 kWh per 100 kilometers. According to Mercedes, its battery has 50% less volume and is 30% lighter than the equivalent of the EQS, which it launched last year.

“Vision EQXX has seen the best minds in our R&D centers working with engineers from our Formula 1 and Formula E programs,” said Markus Schäfer, member of the board of directors of Daimler. “They prove that innovations in motorsport – where powertrains are already heavily electrified – have immediate relevance to the development of road cars.”

Pandemic could force more schedule changes – Domenicali

Lance Stroll, Racing Point, Albert Park, 2019
F1 is set to return to Australia in April

The Covid-19 pandemic could force more changes to the world championship schedule for the third year in a row, F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali has admitted.

A record 23 races are expected in the 2022 F1 calendar. These include venues that have been unable to host races in the previous two years, such as Albert Park in Australia, Marina Bay in Singapore and Suzuka in Japan. The Chinese Grand Prix is ​​missing from the program for the third year in a row.

F1 will add a new race in Miami this year and Domenicali is keen to expand the schedule further, but admits the series’ expansion plans could be thwarted by the pandemic.

“A return to Africa – whether in the north or the south – would be great”, he told Sport 1. “How quickly this works will also depend on the situation around Covid. We must not continue to underestimate the corona pandemic. We may also have to adjust the schedule again in 2022. ”

Welcome aboard, Will!

I am extremely proud to announce a significant development at RaceFans for 2022. Will Wood, who became a contributor to the site when it was still called F1 Fanatic, has been appointed associate editor.

His arrival is all the more significant as Will is the first full-time staff member to join the team besides myself. He’s already working hard to expand our coverage into new areas and make sure we go into the new racing season in better shape than ever.

While many of our other regular RaceFans contributors will continue with us into the New Year, Dieter Rencken has moved on to another project, and his final articles for us will appear in the coming weeks. We wish him all the best.

Honda believes the communication problems, born of immense respect between them and McLaren, contributed to the failure of their reunion.

Hopes were high for McLaren when they went from Mercedes power to reconnect with Honda for 2015.

The duo had already enjoyed great success together between 1988 and 1992 when McLaren won four Honda manufacturer titles in the span of five seasons.

Optimism reigned then when Honda returned as an engine manufacturer alongside McLaren in 2015, with the Woking team looking to bounce back from a 2014 campaign that had brought in just two podiums.

The reunion failed to reclaim former glories, however, with poor reliability and inferior power output, meaning McLaren failed to finish on the podium during their three-year stint with Honda. before separating at the end of 2017.

And the main problem Honda felt was not a lack of mutual respect. Instead, there were too many.

Quoted by Motorsport.comHonda Formula 1 boss Masashi Yamamoto said: “Since McLaren’s time we have learned a lot from them, but we think we have too much mutual respect.

“That’s why we had maybe a little bit of a lack of communication and then it was a shame that the project did not go well.”

Ironically, it was after the McLaren relationship ended that Honda started to gain a foothold in Formula 1.

By teaming up with Toro Rosso, Honda has done enough with the Red Bull junior team to convince the parent company to also go for Honda power from 2019.

Red Bull returned to the top of the Drivers‘ Championship in 2021 thanks to Max Verstappen. But in a recurring theme, Honda has now left Formula 1 once again, with the company instead focusing on its carbon neutral project.

Honda will assist Red Bull next season, but engine development will be the responsibility of the team after the formation of Red Bull Powertrains.

“Leaving F1 was a very big decision for Honda, and it was for carbon neutrality and also for customers around the world,” said Yamamoto.

“Although we had good results this year, we never had a discussion to stay here.”

Asked to pick a highlight of Honda’s final F1 stint, Yamamoto, speaking ahead of Max Verstappen’s World Championship triumph, said: “The best moment for me is the Australian Grand Prix in 2019, the first podium with Red Bull Racing. Also, of course, Austria 2019, the first victory with Red Bull.

In short

Mercedes launches W13 for the first time

The Mercedes constructors’ champions have become the first Formula 1 team to share public images of their 2022 car launched ahead of pre-season testing next season.

The 2022 season will see the appearance of cars change dramatically, with a series of technical regulatory changes designed to make Formula 1 cars able to come close without suffering loss of aerodynamic performance due to dirty air. This will be Mercedes’ first season with the driving duo Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.

Pre-season testing will begin on February 23, 2022 with a three-day test at the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain. The teams will then travel to Bahrain for a second three-day test at the Sakhir circuit before the start of the season in Bahrain the following week.

Haas VF-22 passes FIA crash test

Haas has announced that its 2022 challenger – the VF-22 – has officially passed its mandatory FIA safety crash test.

In a social media post, the team shared an image of a crash test result card mockup dated December 23, with a “pass” stamped on it, indicating that the team’s chassis for next season had been officially approved.

Haas’ new car won’t have much to do to be more successful than its predecessor. The team ended the season scoreless, taking the tenth and final place in the Constructors’ Championship, with team principal Guenther Steiner openly admitting at the start of the season that the team was focusing all of their development work on the 2022 car. .

Verstappen named Dutch sportsman of the year

Max Verstappen was named “Sportsman of the Year” in his home country, the Netherlands, after winning his first Formula 1 World Championship in 2021.

The Dutch Olympic Committee and the Netherlands Sports Federation announced that Verstappen received the honor – voted on by Dutch athletes and a panel of experts – at a gala broadcast live on Dutch TV, with the prize being accepted by Verstappen’s father, Jos. Several Olympic gold medals Middle distance runner Sifan Hassan was elected athlete of the year.
