First glimpses of Austin F1 track and future Formula E (supported by FIA)

Last weekends race was one of the best I’ve ever seen. Vettel’s impressive drive, Raikkonens impressive win for Lotus, Hamilton flying in the front before retiring, Rosberg flying over Karthikeyan, Kimi snapping off his second race engineer, Grosjean driving rally (as always) and so on, and so on.

So I guess there are many out there that are as excited as me moving on to the next race, Austin Texas. The first time there. I watched a few videos about the track and it feels like it can get exciting. High speed straights and really technical corners. Can be a lot of fun!

and while we’re talking about future things…

From their site:

Initially expected in 2013, this championship will begin in 2014 in Rio de Janeiro

About the electric open-wheelers, they must be approved by the FIA to participate in the championship, therefore, Formula E will be open to other teams but the Formulec EF01 is the referent vehicle, 10 teams and 20 drivers will compete for the championship in the world’s major cities.

3,3 seconds for 5 new wheels; 4 rubber, and 1 steering wheel

I nearly never misses an F1-race unless I’m not completely out of possibilities so last weekend was no exception from that, when F1 visited India. The race itself was good (as always), but not one of the best I’ve seen. Even though the race in itself was average one sequence was really amazing.

In my work we’re helping other companies to be more efficient and to make them achieve good processes, and I think this is as good as it gets when it comes to that.

During the beginning of the race Lewis Hamilton complained about not being able to hear the pit so good. If that was the reason for what was about to happen during the first pit-stop, I don’t know, but I think these 3.3 seconds really shows what this team sport is all about, perfection!
