2016 World Motorsports Discussion Thread

Post by Kiskaloo on Mon 30 Nov 2015 - 8:00

And I thought the Nissan LMP1 car was ugly....



Audi Unveils 2016 R18 e-tron quattro


In other WEC news for 2016, both Audi and Porsche will be fielding their two WEC entrants for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as opposed to the usual three. Reason claimed is due to cuts in the motorsports budget by VW as they prepare for the massive financial hits expected in the wake of "Dieselgate".

This means that Nick Tandy and Earl Bamber will not be able to defend their 2015 win (Nico Hülkenberg was already out due to the conflicting Formula One Grand Prix of Azerbaijan).

I know we haven't been keeping up on this thread this season but...Wow.

Hidden; just in case anyone recorded the race and hasn't seen it yet.  It's an awesome one.
Spoiler:

Michele: So, what's your take on all this, Mari?  One of your Toro Rosso guys steps up to the A-team and wins his first race.

Marisa: It's cool I guess.  I'm more excited that both Toro Rosso's got into the points.  I wish it had been Carlos who got the Red Bull chance instead of Max though.

Allison: Really?  I didn't know you had a clear favorite between them.

Amelia: She keeps a photograph of Carlos Sainz Jr. under her pillow when she sleeps.

Marisa: Hey!  Shut your pasta hole, that's confidential 'room-mates only' information! 

Kara: (hearts & anime stars in her eyes) OMG!  Her first celebrity crush!  It's SO cute!

Marisa: Awww, cram it!  I'm gonna go punch something until my knuckles bleed! (stomps away)

Silliness aside...that's one we're going to be telling people about 20 years from now.

Meanwhile...

Jim chuckles at the amount of money he won off of the Spanish GP.

Jim: Mari may be in love with Carlitos Sainz, but I certainly had my faith in de nederlander. Razz Awesome call, Helmut. I hate you, but you made the right call.

Jamiebel: Damn your black heart, Red Bull! Hissy fit

One week after winning the 2016 Formula One World Driving Championship, Nico Rosberg announced his retirement with immediate effect. So no title defense in 2017 and the most coveted seat in Formula One is now open - with everyone else locked into contracts with other teams. Smile

One candidate for the vacated Mercedes seat is a guy who's been with Mercedes since DTM - one Pascal Wehrlein, to be specific.

He did question why he was overlooked for the Force India seat that was taken by the other Mercedes junior, Esteban Ocon. Well, now's the big chance, IMHO, for Mercedes to put Wehrlein in the prime seat, instead of building him up at Manor. He's been testing with the Mercedes guys for years, and I feel his time must be now, if not later, should some other team snatch him up.

Nico retires...here's my suggestion for his replacement;


Keke; rested and ready in 2017!
