Rotards struggles in Austria

Ater looking unstopable in the first two races this season some would say that Rotards has been knocked of his trone. A less then desirable showing Austria and a no show in Brazil has taken its toll on what was a dominant championship lead. Has Rotards undersetimated his opponents? Did he feel like noone could beat him? Martin Brundle caught up with the Force India driver to hear what he had to say.

Martin Brundle: How did you feel the championship was going after Malaysia?
Rotards: It honestly cound't get much better after Malaysia, i felt unrivaled because there wasn't anyone who could mount a challenge at that point.

Martin Brundle: Ehh, you missed Brazil. What's the reasoning behind it?
Rotards: I was on top of the world before Brazil. Huge lead in the championship and it got the better of me. I didn't see the point in showing up which if I'm honest has proven itself to be a big mistake.

Martin Brundle: How do feel about the performance this weekend at Austria?
Rotards: Dissapointed, I made mistakes not just in qualifying but throughout the entire race. Lucky to get away with 4th place. Shoud've placed better but the what if will never make me better, I can't change the outcome of the race after the fact but I do need to learn from my mistakes.

Martin Brundle: Do you feel the start of the season played a part in how you approached the race this weekend?
Rotards: Most deffinatly, it made me overconfident and that's never a good thing. It made me lazy and I didn't put in the effort that was needed before the race.

Martin Brundle: How do plan to approach the rest of the season?
Rotards: I will approach it like i did the first two rounds. I will not get cocky again and give away anymore freebies. It's has became clear that i need to do the practise, beacuse if don't than there's people ready to pounce on the oppertunity. Me and the team have looked at what we did wrong and will come back stronger next race.
Martin Brundle: Thank you.

Bananajosh survives in Monaco GP

After Rotards wins, bananajosh survives the Monaco GP. He said in Brazil “My goal is to finish on the podium” but he miss out the Red Bull Ring until the Monaco GP comes up after Austria GP. He said to the LEGENDARY Murray Walker “On my, it was a tough track but I survive the Monaco GP. I mean their some other street circus like Baku, Singapore, Canada And Australia but it’s tough but for moment of all truth my McLaren teammate Chicken is off to F- what ever it was but I miss you. I need to get into the game and get myself ready for Canada to get some points”. Let’s see what happens in Canada, find out this Saturday night.

The rumours of discontent in the Force India camp ran wild on Saturday night with JPGREENWOOD's absence from the Monaco GP. A few days later Rotards departure from Force India was confirmed leaving the team in dissaray. However Force India believe they have found a capable replacement in aleskiller150. Thanks to Rotards's three victories this season Force India still has a 13pt lead over Red Bull in the constructors championship. Nobody knows what the future will hold for Force India now but time will tell

Crazy season for Force India

So after the departure of aleskiller Force India find themselves with the third driver line-up this season which is unprecedented in Formula 1. So the one constant for Force India this season JPGREENWOOD will be joined by new boy jutspur for the next race in Baku. jutspur is an unknown in F5 so it should be an interesting partnership but with a 22 point lead over their nearest rivals it will be a disaster if Force India lose the Constructors championship. With JP's impressive performance in FP on Tuesday night he's filled with confidence so all eyes will be on the Force India drivers in Baku

Embarrasing is an understatement for Force India

At the start of the season it looked like Force India would run away with the Constructors Championship with then Force India driver Rotards winning 3 out of the first 5 races. It was deemed that Rotards was too quick for the F5 championship but with his departure came in newcomer aleskiller who scored an impressive victory in Canada. Despite second driver JPGREENWOOD only scoring three points all season Force India were still the favourites for the constructors title. If Force India losing Rotards was a tough blow losing aleskiller was like a kick in the nuts for the team. Another newcomer Jutspur came into the team but in the three races that he had he failed to score any points. A extremely disappointing season for JP by his own standards Force India find themselves up the creek without a paddle with JP being the only driver flying the Force India flag. With only three races left in the season Force India have very slim hopes winning the Constructors title

A season to forget for JP

Well JP had a lot to say at the start of the season & he was confident he could mount a challenge for the Driver's Championship. A poor result in Australia in the first race of the season set the tone for his campaign. There was a good result in Brazil but despite that he couldn't really kick on from there. It wasn't all bad for JP as the Force India team had strong drivers throughout the season like Rotards & aleskiller before JP had to fend for himself. So there wasn't really any chance for JP in the Driver's championship & the Constructors title was taken away form him. JP improved slightly towards the back end of the season but only two points finishes in the season JP will want to quickly put this behind him.

Despite all this JP is looking foward to next season but is unlikely he will remain with Force India

JP & Jake sign for McLaren

McLaren this week announced their season three driver line-up of JPGREENWOOD & JakeWarriorBFC.
JP's last season was one he'd wanna forget but McLaren feel theirs still potential in him & that they can provide the right enviroment for him to reach that potential. Jakes has been out of a F1 seat for some time but when he was driving for McLaren in his F4 days he showed some strong pace. McLaren had a tough time last season with their lack of consistency with drivers retaining their seats but now they feel they have a strong driver line-up to challenge for the Constructors title. It will be a season to bounce back for both McLaren & JP & Jake will be trying to prove that he still has what it takes to challenge for podiums & victories. What will season three bring for McLaren & their drivers? Only time will tell

A lot Of Speculation went round last week about a potential move for Tyler To F3 But his performance last season denied him a move he was interviewed in the f5 team reveal yesterday from From Channel 4's Very Own Mark Webber 'Are You Dissapointed in not joning f3?'
Tyler Very Quickly responded with this without no hesitation
'Oh without a doubt wanted to get a good move to string a potential mid table finish there but onwards and upwards'
So at around 5:50pm UK time The Teams And Drivers Were announced Tyler's Team is  HAAS F1 TEAM With his teammate Ganac08
The Rookie Who Has joined F5 Has No previous experience Here in PSGL so it should be an Excellent Time and challenge for the HAAS lads and if they have a disappointing  season in f5 like last season they will be HAAShamed of themselves
