Toyota, Red Bull, have no plans to use KERS

With the start of F1's European season now looming, two teams not yet running KERS systems have revealed they have no immediate plans to implement the new technology.

Toyota, who locked out of the front row of the Bahrain grid last weekend, announced last year that they would begin the 2009 season without KERS, which converts otherwise lost braking energy into additional power bursts.

"So far at the moment we are not planning to use KERS," German driver Timo Glock said in Bahrain.

The same is true of Red Bull, who as Renault's engine customer would use the energy recovery technology developed by the French squad.

But team boss Christian Horner said: "In terms of ultimate performance we don't feel it has earned its place on our car yet but that's not to say it will not do in the future.

"We retain a very open mind about KERS but at the moment there is no fixed date at which to introduce it," he added.

Similarly, Toro Rosso, Force India and Brawn would use the active systems of their engine suppliers Ferrari and Mercedes respectively, but are currently holding off.

Williams is working hard on its unique flywheel system and intends to race it as soon as possible.

But two teams already using battery-based KERS systems are having second thoughts. Renault's Flavio Briatore in Bahrain said the team will "maybe use it for another one or two races, if everything goes well".

Ferrari, meanwhile, were analysing the KERS benefit in detail last weekend, running it in practice on Felipe Massa's car but not Kimi Raikkonen's.

Said boss Stefano Domenicali: "Our project was born around KERS and it is very difficult to change the complete car, thinking that KERS is not there, so we need to find the best compromise."

Branson makes offer to Brawn GP

Sir Richard Branson has made Brawn GP an offer to become their main sponsor.

Branson's Virgin Group joined forces with the Formula 1 team just before the Australian Grand Prix and early success has seen Brawn's popularity rise.

"At the moment we are negotiating and we may or may not end up doing a full branding exercise," said Branson.

"If someone comes in and pays a silly price we will bow out gracefully. At the moment we've made an offer we feel we can afford."

Brawn GP drivers Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello secured a one-two at the season-opener in Melbourne barely 24 hours after Branson confirmed a "substantial sponsorship" deal for the former Honda team, owned by Ross Brawn.

Button also won in Malaysia and was third in China to top of the drivers' standings ahead of Sunday's Bahrain Grand Prix, ensuring the Brackley-based team have suddenly become a hot ticket.

"The team have become very popular since the beginning of the season," said Branson. "If we don't do it (become the principal sponsor) we will obviously be the sponsor for this year and would be delighted with the way it has gone, and if we end up doing it, even better. Let's see how it goes.

Team principal Brawn confirmed discussions were still ongoing, adding: "We are looking to try and develop a bigger, longer-term relationship.

"It is understanding what they want and what we want. In this particular (financial) environment, any team is looking for medium-term commitments, so it would be nice to have our principal funding in place for the next few years."

Branson was in the paddock at the Sakhir circuit to promote his Virgin Galactic programme which Barrichello and Niki Lauda have already subscribed too, paying $200,000 (£136,000) for their ticket.

Branson revealed former three-time F1 champion Lauda, a fully-trained pilot after owning his own airline, will also learn to fly the Virgin Galactic plane.

"The mothership is now completed, finished and flying and doing its testing, whilst the spaceship will be completed at the end of the year," added Branson.

"Then there will be another 18 months of testing. We will do more tests than NASA have flown missions before we take people up.

"Myself and my family will then go up on the first flight, and Niki when he is finished, will be capable of flying both."

Lauda, 60, said: "I have been a professional pilot for many years, and although I've flown Boeing and Airbuses, my only dream was to fly the Space Shuttle.

"I was always looking at that, but that was impossible because the Americans do that, so when I saw this project I was the first knocking on the door."

Branson is planning to build one of three spaceports - the other two in America and Australasia - in either Bahrain, Qatar, Abu Dhabi or Saudi Arabia.

Button makes it three wins from four in Bahrain

Jenson Button made it three wins out of four for Brawn GP in Bahrain on Sunday afternoon, with a finely judged performance that stretched his world championship score to 31 points.

Before the race the Englishman had suggested that Brawn’s domination was under threat. But when Red Bull dangerman Sebastian Vettel lost out at the start as McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton burst through to momentarily separate the Toyotas, Button was able to squeeze round the outside of the German in Turn One and was thereafter never threatened by him.

It was just a matter of waiting for the Toyota to make their stops (leader Glock on lap 11, polesitter Trulli on lap 12), and thereafter he only lost the lead after his own first stop on lap 15 (regaining it on lap 22 when Vettel and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen stopped), and after his second stop on lap 37, when Vettel again moved ahead for three laps.

Far from challenging, the young German had his hands full looking after his tyres in traffic, and as Button sped away the Red Bull driver had to contend with a strong challenge to the end from Trulli. A day that started well for Toyota ultimately yielded a podium finish, but after both cars started from the front row that had to count as a disappointment. Trulli blamed a long middle stint on the prime Bridgestone tyre which let Vettel pass in the final stops.

Hamilton quickly faded after his KERS-assisted start, but nevertheless ran strongly to a good fourth place for the improving McLaren team.

Rubens Barrichello had an up and down afternoon in the second Brawn with three pit stops, and grabbed fifth ahead of Raikkonen, who thus scored Ferrari’s first points of the season, having led laps 20 and 21 after a long opening stint. The Finn actually fell behind Glock when the German made his second stop, but used his KERS to squirt past into a sixth place that the Toyota driver challenged to the flag. Fernando Alonso completed the points scorers in eighth for Renault, fending off Nico Rosberg after the latter’s final stop.

Felipe Massa had a terrible afternoon after an extra stop to check damage sustained in first-corner traffic at the start, and could only finish a lapped 14th. Ahead of him were Nelson Piquet who drove a strong race for Renault, Mark Webber who charged from the back of the grid for Red Bull, Heikki Kovalainen who never recovered from a terrible start for McLaren, and Toro Rosso’s Sebastien Bourdais.

Behind were Giancarlo Fisichella, who collided with the Ferrari briefly and then held up Button on the 51st lap, his Force India team mate Adrian Sutil, Sebastien Buemi in the second Toro Rosso, and the BMW Saubers of Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld which had a simply dreadful time with an initial heavy fuel load. Williams’ Kazuki Nakajima was the sole retirement, after a clash with Kubica.

Button now has 31 points from Barrichello on 19, Vettel on 18, Trulli on 14.5 and Glock on 12. Brawn have 50 points, to Red Bull’s 27.5 and Toyota’s 26.5. Ferrari got their points tally off the ground, and have three.

Bridgestone to debut new intermediate tyre at Monaco

Bridgestone have announced they will introduce a brand new intermediate wet-weather tyre at May’s Monaco Grand Prix. The new softer compound has been designed to counter some of the lost aerodynamic grip in wet conditions, prompted by this season’s new regulations

“Our new intermediate tyre compound will debut at Monaco and we will use this for the rest of the season,” said Hirohide Hamashima, Bridgestone director of motorsport tyre development. “It is a softer compound and will allow more mechanical grip, however, the lower downforce from the latest cars means that it is still more of a challenge driving in the wet than before.”

Bridgestone also confirmed the dry-weather compounds teams will have to use at the upcoming races. In a break from their allocation rationale for this season, the Japanese company plan to bring adjacent compounds to the Monte Carlo.

“Our allocations for the next four races from Monaco onwards are based on the data we have collected so far this season, and the extensive knowledge we have of the race venues we visit,” added Hamashima.

"In Monaco, there is a change to our allocation philosophy due to the unique characteristics of this smooth and slippery track. This means we will bring the super soft and soft tyres, which are next to each other in terms of softness, and also both from our low temperature working range family."

From Monaco on, Bridgestone will revert to their normal routine of non-consecutive allocations. So for June’s Turkish and British races, soft and hard compounds will need to be used, while at July’s German Grand Prix the teams will be allocated super-soft and medium rubber.

Announced Bridgestone tyre allocations for the 2009 season:
Australia - super soft, medium
Malaysia - soft, hard
China - super soft, medium
Bahrain - super soft, medium
Spain - soft, hard
Monaco - super soft, soft
Turkey - soft, hard
Britain - soft, hard
Germany - super soft, medium

Toseland got what he 'needed'

James Toseland will head for the opening round of the European MotoGP season, at Jerez this weekend, having claimed the top ten finish he 'needed' in Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi.

The Englishman arrived at round two having suffered two huge accidents in the three pre-season tests, then finished a distant 16th after being bumped off track in the Qatar season opener.

“I needed to be back in the top ten, so today was the step I've been looking for,” declared the Monster Yamaha Tech 3 rider. “We made a big step with the front-end setting on Friday in just the 45 minutes of dry track time we had this weekend and it helped me a lot. The comfort on the braking was much better and I was able to pass a couple of guys on the brakes today, which was good.”

Toseland, Mika Kallio (eighth) and Nicky Hayden (DNF) were the only riders to opt for the softer Bridgestone rear tyre - the #52 naturally careful to avoid any more cold tyre highsides - and the quick heating choice helped him rise from tenth to seventh on lap one.

“I went for the soft rear tyre just because that's what I'd run most on Friday. We knew the soft one would go the distance, but it wouldn't be as strong in the latter stages of the race with the temperature being hotter today. But I didn't want to take any risks by running the harder compound, particularly as we knew it would take a couple of laps to get to temperature.

“In the early part of the race I had quite a bit more grip than some of the guys and I might have been able to pass Stoner and Capirossi if I was more comfortable with the bike on a full fuel load. That would have pushed me a bit further up earlier in the race when I had an advantage with the softer tyre.”

The soft rubber naturally wasn't as strong in the closing stages, but Toseland was able to secure ninth by 0.139sec after a last lap battle with Suzuki's Chris Vermeulen.

“It was a good battle on the last lap with Vermeulen. He passed me briefly at the end of the back straight, but I managed to keep him at bay,” he said. “I'm happy for my team because they've stood behind me and everybody has kept their morale up, and now we've got a result we can build on.”

“It was good to see James fighting strongly in the top ten and this result will have given his confidence a big boost,” added team manager Herve Poncharal. “He has had a difficult winter and first race, but he's remained incredibly focused and this is a good platform for him to build on for the rest of the season.”

Team-mate Colin Edwards finished twelfth after a technical problem.

Interestingly, despite finishing ninth, Toseland only set the 15th fastest race lap - nearly two seconds behind the best by factory Yamaha rider and race winner Jorge Lorenzo - suggesting the Englishman had to rely on consistency to vault up the order and that further set-up progress is needed to extract the proven speed potential from his M1.

Lorenzo delighted after Far Eastern triumph

Jorge Lorenzo was ecstatic about his performance in Japan but still playing down his championship chances following his second MotoGP win.

Fiat Yamaha’s Spanish star Jorge Lorenzo took a superb win at the Polini Grand Prix of Japan on Sunday, but despite taking the standings lead after two races so far this year he still believes some of his rivals are stronger than him.

The former double 250cc World Champion stated during his preparations for his second MotoGP campaign over the winter that his target is a top three standings finish at the end of 2009 and his still playing up the strengths of some more establish premier class stars, after his Qatar podium and his brilliant Motegi performance.

“I am the leader in the championship but I still think that (Casey) Stoner, Valentino (Rossi) and (Dani) Pedrosa are stronger than us,” Lorenzo told motogp.com after the Twin Ring race. “They are more experienced with the Bridgestone tyres but we are still learning about them and improving.”

“Today I had a great opportunity to win,” continued the man from Mallorca, “I knew that with a hard rear tyre I had good pace, so I saw the chance and I attacked.”

Moving back to his native Spain for the first of a series of European races as the top man in MotoGP Lorenzo anticipated the huge support he will receive next week at round three saying, “Jerez is unbelievable -as we all know. All the people there have warm hearts and they are very passionate about the Spanish riders. I think if there is one track where you should take a risk to win it is there.”

Pedrosa: “Unexpected podium will motivate Honda”

One of the more surprising placings at the Polini Grand Prix of Japan, Dani Pedrosa’s third place kept the Spaniard within touching distance of the MotoGP World Championship leaders. It was an important result for Pedrosa, but also gave Honda an important top three finish at their home circuit –a result that the factory rider feels will push on development of the RC212V.

“It’s a great result. I don’t think that anybody expected it. I think I could have even taken second, but when I passed Rossi he seemed to wake up and see that he had to go faster!” said Pedrosa after the Japanese showdown.

“Third isn’t the best place -we obviously still need to work hard. Hopefully with the situation we are in now this result will create a good feeling, and I think that the motivation within Honda to make progress will increase.”

Additional progress also appears to have been made with the Repsol Honda man’s knee, as he steadily regains fitness as the weeks go by. He hailed the work done by not just himself, but also the doctors in charge of getting him in fighting shape.

“After six months of problems with my knee –surgery, being scared to push things, no testing- I took a podium and I’m very happy with this. I only have to thank the doctors for getting me fit to be here.”

Pedrosa is now fifth in the general classification, one point behind teammate Andrea Dovizioso.

Yamaha and Petronas extend collaboration into MotoGP

Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd has signed a three-year agreement with PETRONAS that will see the Malaysian national oil and gas corporation become an important new Official Sponsor and Premium Partner of the Fiat Yamaha Team.

Under the new partnership, the Fiat Yamaha Team will carry the PETRONAS branding on the team’s liveries, including on the bikes of riders Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo as well as team equipment and material.

The two parties are also partners in sporting collaborations in motorcycle championships in the Asia Pacific region for over eight years.

The partnership will lead to the future extension of the existing business relationship in Malaysia into the South-East Asian region for the development and production of Yamalube engine oil for Yamaha OEM vehicles.

For PETRONAS, the latest collaboration with Yamaha will enable it to continue building the position of its international lubricants business through a strategic partnership with another globally successful manufacturer and brand.

“This is a very exciting development for Yamaha and for the sport of MotoGP,” commented Lin Jarvis, Managing Director of Yamaha Motor Racing. “Yamaha and PETRONAS already have a successful business relationship away from racing, and this new, long-term, business partnership will see the ties between the two multi-national companies strengthened further. It is especially good to see a global company of PETRONAS’ stature making the decision to enter into our sport at this difficult time and we look forward to working hand in hand with them to develop a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

The new livery of the Fiat Yamaha Team riders and bikes with PETRONAS branding will be seen for the first time on Friday April 10th as the riders begin free practice for the 1st GP event - the night race in Qatar on Sunday April 12th.
