F1 Summer Break News Thread

Post by crl on Tue Jul 30, 2013 6:32 pm

Instead of cluttering the forum with F1 news threads during this 4-week break before Belgium, I thought we can put all the important news items into one thread.

And Alonso's criticism of Ferrari drew the ire of Luca di Montezemolo:

 Double Check. Ferrari has announced that there are no plans to sign Raikkonen as Kimi plans to stay with Lotus next season.

It's not exactly F1 news, but Schumi is the first entrant in this year's Race of Champions.
