After the acquisition of Porsche by VAG the plans for Porsche LMP1 where dropped in favor of F1. They dont want the two brands competing against each other.

Meanwhile in Switzerland~

Bernie got married again...

http://www.pitpass.com/47086-Ecclestone-gets-married

Quote:
Formula 1 tycoon Bernie Ecclestone has secretly married for a third time in a ceremony at his ski chalet in Switzerland.

In a service his own daughters failed to attend, the 81-year-old billionaire married Brazilian marketing director Fabiana Flosi, 35, at Le Lion, his £23million chalet in the exclusive resort of Gstaad.

The couple, who announced their engagement in April with Miss Flosi sporting a £100,000 ring, exchanged vows two weeks ago – while Mr Ecclestone’s two daughters remained 6,000 miles away in Los Angeles.

You know even if I was an 81 year old billionaire I think I'd have too much self respect to marry someone less that half my age. Only a delusional narcissist would think a young women would be interested in anything other than your money.

I wouldn't be surprised if Schumi ends up driving a bright red car next year.

I'd love to see that, but I think he's done.

That sucks... I really hate seeing Schumi go... I think Hamilton going to Mercedes is dumb move... especially since the car has been nothing but trouble for Schumi this whole season.

Kovalainen's management team supposedly visited Ferrari:

http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/2...isits-ferrari/

Quote:
The management of Heikki Kovalainen has been invited to Ferrari to discuss a drive for the 2013 Formula 1 season. That is according to Finnish television company MTV3, with the Caterham driver now being tipped as a leading candidate for Fernando Alonso’s team-mate.

As explained in the latest GPUpdate.net Insight, feelings coming out of Maranello are that Alonso may see Sergio Pérez as too much of a threat and that Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo is mentioning Sebastian Vettel as a smokescreen tactic. Whether the Kovalainen talks are preliminary or serious remains to be seen.

According to MTV3, Kovalainen and his team have also been in contact with the Lotus squad which currently runs Romain Grosjean and fellow Finn Kimi Räikkönen. He has already spent a season with the Enstone team, having made his F1 debut with the outfit then known as ‘Renault F1’ in 2007. Neither Ferrari nor Kovalainen have confirmed any talks.
I really hope he moves up to a better team next season.

Interesting!

I, for one, would love to see Heikki in a red car. I can't see Vettel at Ferrari while Alonso is there.

Perez needs to move up to a top-tier team, Ferrari or otherwise...he's shockingly quick when the stars align properly.

The problem of Perez now is, if he is going to Ferrari, it will be career suicide.
Teaming up with Fernando means you will forever be Number 2 until he retires.

Well I have been in Singapore for work since late last month and guess who postponed his departure to 9/24 @7am. Answer; the guy with a grandstand seat for the race.
