    Turn 8, hard to tell from that map but turn 8 is one of his greatest creations, possibly his only one so he is quite likely to replicate that. I don't know about the stadium section. Maybe there is a video available or one might surface soon like the one they did for the Indian track. It will give everyone a better idea.

    Kevin Schwantz was insanely brave on a bike and he may well have given him ideas. Probably makes more sense since bikes ran at Donnington and Brands Hatch and rarely at Silverstone but why couldn't they get an ex-racer to help them One thing Americans are good at is putting on a show, so expect it to be grand when the race takes place and if the track is any good it should be fun.

    Have you read the article on JA's website about talks failing regarding the 2013-2014 rules? Sounds like quite a mess and teams might be moving towards needing a unanimous vote to push through rules-that will be a big problem. If the 2014 engines do arrive, teams like HRT and Murussia will almost definitely disappear because they will not be able to meet the costs.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    @UK
    As far as I know, the engines are in advanced stages of development, with Mercedes intending to put their first engine on test bench after the summer break, Renault is already finalizing the teams that they want to supply engines in the 2014 onward era. P.U.R.E are also about to put their engine on the test bench in the fall this year. Only team that is not showing any such signs is Ferrari but it is quite possible that they are developing their engine behind the curtains and will reveal it when the time comes.

    All this discussion going on about the new rules is to delay them another year till 2015 season but this is where the problem is Renault is threatening to leave if that happens and Bernie is not ready to allow that especially to that manufacturer who has win 2 consecutive titles in last 2 seasons.

    Kevin Schwantz involvement is also because of COTA's ambition of holding a MotoGP race and for that the circuit needs to be FIM standard too which can only be if some MotoGP rider's input is given.

    @genius83

    Whatever i have read suggests that Mercedes is well on course to have the engines ready. They fired up the engine a couple of months back. P.U.R.E seems to be working according to schedule. Ferrari are working on their engine too but little news about their engine as you said and Cosworth have refused to build one if i remember correctly.

    Renault are very keen on the new ' greener ' engine and they have been for sometime. Their whole involvement probably revolves around it. It's for their consumer market and just like a V4 was never going to happen because it makes no sense for Ferrari, this is something Renault want equally bad. But delaying the process only means complete consensus and that will be hard to get if the next deadline, 24th july passes without any progress being made.

    The Austin track looks pretty decent from the video you posted. You were right about the last part, looks very similar to the stadium section but the left hander is not like turn 8. Turn 8 is a monster with four apexes, this looks more like spoon with a double apex. Also the first sector is more like maggots, becketts section of Silverstone or maybe the famous Suzuka esses.

    I don't know what to think of Maria, this was her first test for Marussia and this happens, second is what went wrong?? Marussia should have clarified this but their is no explanation from theirs side.
    There was no reason to put her behind the wheel with her limited experience and in this day and age with so limited testing. Even for a straight line test, what was going to be her reference point. It was a photo-op which went really bad. The pictures and audio posted show a slow accident, she probably lost control and went into the back of the truck which had the back hatch open at 90 degrees. It's a freak accident but will lead to more noise about F1 drivers needing a canopy or something. She had no business driving the car especially given the nature of the crash unless something went really wrong with that car and the team are keeping quiet about it, unlikely though.

    There is that other one at Williams, Susie Stoddart, now Susie Wolf, having married Toto Wolf who happens to have a big share in the Williams team, his wife gets the test driver role. There are enough girls in F1 as it is, don't want to name names but there are a few driving in F1 these days masquerading as men.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Sad... but I dont like women drivers in F1. Yes... that is just me and my 2 cents. Only teams who want publicity will employ these tactics i.e putting women into F1 seat.

    Bookies tip Sebastian Vettel for Silverstone success
    Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel is the bookmakers' choice for victory in this weekend's British Grand Prix.

    McLaren in big development push for British and German Grands Prix
    McLaren is targeting a raft of upgrades for the British and German Grands Prix in a big development push that it hopes will get it back to the head of the world championship table.

    @UK
    Here is the GP organizer himself in an interview describing the track and what turns are inspiration of some famous turns from other tracks.

    F1: Austin Track Borrows Classic Corners
    Austin F1 promoter Tavo Hellmund has revealed a plan of the Hermann Tilke-designed track, and as previously reported, it has corners "borrowed" from other circuits.

    Hellmund showed the plans to the city's Statesman newspaper, which has generally taken a somewhat sceptical line about the race.

    Hellmund said that turns 3-6 are a nod to Maggotts/Becketts at Silverstone, turns 12-15 are a reflection of Hockenheim's stadium, and turns 16-18 are intended to mirror Turn 8 at Istanbul.

    However, he says that Turn 1, which is an uphill hairpin, will be the track's own "signature" corner. The track is 3.4 miles long.

    As for Maria, she has driven F1 car before too, the Renault 2009 so she knows how to drive F1 car plus she has competed in SuperLeague Formula where the cars were 3.5L V12's powered. What I have read about it is she was doing clutch testing and something goes wrong as the car accelerate and hit the truck ramp. But as Marussia has not still issue an statement we can't be sure about it.
