June 1, 2010 in Motor sports by admin

Arguably the best-connected member of the Brazilian formula one media, Galvao Bueno, has revealed that Felipe Massa only needs to put his signature on a new Ferrari contract for 2011.

In the wake of strong speculation that the 29-year-old Paulista might lose his seat to a rival driver, it was reported in Turkey that Massa is now closing on a new deal.

Galvao is the influential lead commentator and head of sports for Brazil�s Globo TV.

Ferrari had a bad weekend at Istanbul Park, but Galvao said: �Want the good news about Felipe Massa? Everything is set (for a new deal).

�(The contract is) missing two or three commas, but the signing should happen quickly now.�

Ferrari�s �special Christmas present� for Felipe Massa

December 15, 2009 in Formula 1, Motor sports by admin

felipe-massaFelipe Massa will be testing the forthcoming Formula One car this week. Ferrari has portrayed it as a “special Christmas present” for Felipe Massa.

Circuit testing is barred until after the new cars are launched at the end of January, but the Italian team said Massa “asked Ferrari to give him a present”.

“In the next few days, the Brazilian will be back on a race track at the Mugello circuit to drive a Formula One car,” said the Maranello based outfit, revealing that the single seater at the 28-year-old’s disposal will be a F2007 with demonstration tyres.

Ferrari said the test will not take place on Monday, with an exact date to only be set pending the region’s weather forecast.

“I wanted to jump into a Formula One car before the end of the year, so I made the most of being in Maranello to do it,” said Massa.

Turkington Wins The British Touring Car Championship

November 11, 2009 in Motor sports by admin

BMW driver Colin Turkington has secured the British Touring Car Championship. He has been trying for seven year and has finally succeeded- but he did in a kind of Jenson Button-style.

The 27-year-old Northern Irishman was approximately 40 points clear by June but only snuck across the line with a five-point advantage at the end of the 30-race competition after a spectacular final meeting at Brands Hatch.

It was a superb show of controlled violence from Turkington around the 2.6-mile Kent circuit for the final meeting and it was enough to put him ahead of Giovanardi and get his hands on the trophy.
