Sauber F1 Team and Chelsea FC enter into partnership “Out of the Blue”


The The Sauber F1 Team is pleased to be able to confirm today that it has entered into a new and innovative partnership with the British Premier League Club Chelsea FC. At the Chinese and Bahrain Grands Prix the inscriptions “Out of the Blue” and “True Blue” on the engine covers of the Sauber C31 had successfully aroused curiosity, now the alliance with the “blue” club is official.

The Sauber C31 sporting the blue logo of Chelsea FC will be seen for the first time at the Spanish Grand Prix, 11th -13th May 2012.

Monisha Kaltenborn, CEO of the Sauber F1 Team, said, “A partnership like this between Formula One and Football has never existed before in this form, yet there are numerous commonalities and possible synergies. In either case we are talking about team sport at the highest – and international – level. The Sauber F1 Team and Chelsea FC are dealing with many of the same sporting and commercial topics and we want to strengthen each other in these areas. We are looking forward to exploiting these opportunities, and we congratulate Chelsea on making it to the final of the Champions League.”

Chelsea Chief Executive Ron Gourlay said: “This is an innovative partnership that will see a football club link up with a Formula 1 team like never before, bringing together two of the world’s biggest sports and uniting our fans. We felt that this Swiss team, the fourth oldest of the existing teams, reflects our own ideals perfectly.
.
“In a year when Chelsea celebrates 20 seasons as a Premier League team, Sauber does so as a Formula 1 team. We share many philosophies when it comes to how the respective organisations are run, from the development of young talent to constantly striving for success. Sauber's philosophy towards grassroots development has produced some of the best drivers in F1, which mirrors our dedication to develop promising young football talent through our Academy.
.
"This partnership will benefit us both greatly, with the potential to create unique commercial opportunities. It is a shared vision to unite the two most attractive sports in the world. We look forward to working closely with the Sauber F1 Team and wish them the very best of luck for the remainder of the Formula 1 season.”

At team level the new partnership is focused on synergies and ways to enhance performance in business and sporting matters. In concrete terms, this includes the sale of merchandising articles and exchange of knowledge in the area of sport science. Both partners will support each other by featuring the other partner’s logo and thus benefit from a significant market presence outside their original sport. Chelsea FC will present the Sauber F1 Team logo at home matches on advertising boards at the stadium and on interview walls. Conversely, the football club benefits from Formula One’s television reach which, compared with the Premier League, is much higher and more international. Particularly in Asia Formula One enjoys enormous TV presence and, not least thanks to Sergio Pérez, is currently captivating more and more fans in Latin America as well.

Accordingly, the combination of both platforms at the sponsoring level is highly attractive especially for international brands. In addition, existing sponsors of both partners profit from joint events.

Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain

GP2 Race Two

Saturday 28th April 2012
.
Caterham Racing concluded a fortnight in Bahrain this afternoon in the GP2
sprint race held at the BIC in Sakhir.

From P6 on the grid the team's Dutchman Giedo van der Garde was fighting for
third position when an incident at turn one sent him spinning in a cloud of
dust. He managed to gain control and race on from the back of the field but
sadly hopes of another podium finish were dashed and he finished the 23-lap race
P19. Rodolfo Gonzalez avoided the chaos at the first corner to gain several
positions and drove a smooth race dicing amongst the mid-fielders to finish p15
at the chequered flag.

Next Event: Barcelona GP, Spain 11th – 13th May

Caterham Racing Team Manager Phill Spencer “After our podium success yesterday
of course our results today are disappointing. We had hoped to add to our
silverware but for Giedo sadly it was all over at the first corner. Rodolfo had
another strong start but he struggled with the balance and again with his rear
tyres towards the end of the race. We had a very encouraging sprint race here
last week and we thought we had made some headway with the set up but we still
have work to do before our next race. All in all we have learnt a lot here and
now look forward to getting back and racing in Europe.”

Rodolfo Gonzalez (P15 Best Lap 1:48.036 ) “We made a change on the grid and the
car felt really good to begin with but as the race went on we struggled with
understeer and rear tyre degradation which made it very difficult to drive and
fight for positions. I think perhaps compared to my team mate my race pace was a
little more consistent today but we still have a lot to work on. Taking the
positives from this week we had a very strong qualifying session. We have made a
big step in the right direction with our qualifying set up which is very
encouraging heading into the European races.”

Giedo van der Garde (P19 Best Lap 1:48.194) “I made a good start and was
fighting for third position as I went into the first corner but then I was hit.
When I rejoined I was in last place and my tyres were shot from the incident so
the pace just wasn’t there. The good thing is we have shown our potential here
this week. We did a good job in qualifying and our race pace yesterday was
pretty good too so it’s now a matter of working to solve the issues we have with
tyre management so we can be more competitive in the next round. It will be good
to get back to Europe and I look forward to the next event in Barcelona!”

Chief Engineer Humphrey Corbett “Giedo was very unlucky at the start when he was
hit by another car but this is racing and incidents like that happen. He burnt
a lot of rubber when he spun which did not help his race, but he carried on to
finish 19th.

"Rodolfo had a reasonably incident free race today which is good. He drove very
smoothly and completed the race in one piece after another strong start and is
setting himslef up well for the next event in Barcelona in a couple of weeks
time.”

BRSCC National Formula Ford 1600 Championship Round 1 - Oulton Park England

Published on Apr 2, 2012 by
 
On Board footage of the First round of the 2012 BRSCC National Formula Ford 1600 Championship at Oulton Park. The race was filled with incidents, which led to two safety cars.

I started from 4th on the grid, didn't make the best get away and dropped to 5th, as carnage broke out behind me. I was then caught napping at the Hairpin when John Murphy went around the outside of me, just before the first safety car was deployed. After a few laps behind the safety car the race resumed, only for another incident to occur at the hairpin. The two leaders, Martin Short and Jamie Jardine tangled, resulting in Jardine rolling. Neil Winn just avoided the incident, but lost a lot places in doing so. The net result moved me into 3rd and brought out a second safety car.

The race got started for a one lap sprint, which saw John Murphy take the lead, only to spin off with two corners to go, promoting me to 2nd and I had a run on the leader, Douglas Crosbie. I managed to take the lead on the last corner of the last lap, leading the most important lap and taking the win.

The final result of the top 6 was:
1 - #27 Luke Cooper (White/Blue Swift SC10)
2 - #6 Neil Winn (Black Van Diemen LA10)
3 - #21 Ryan Cullen (White Ray GRS08)
4 - #54 Douglas Crosbie (Blue Van Diemen RF00)
5 - #8 Daniel Headlam (Black Van Diemen JL012K)
6 - #48 Vincent Jay (White Ray GRK10)

Caterham Racing News

Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain
GP2 Qualifying & Race One
Friday 27th April 2012
.
Caterham Racing takes its first podium of the season in Bahrain with a third place finish for Giedo van der Garde.

In a schedule busier than usual, the GP2 Series competed at the BIC for the second weekend in a row as part of a GP2 stand alone event. The team took a big step in the right direction this morning, qualifying on pole position when Giedo van der Garde recorded an impressive 1:42.451 lap - knocking the current championship leader Davide Valsecchi off the top spot by just 0.1 seconds. Rodolfo Gonzalez also drove incredibly well to qualify P7, ahead of the race at 4pm (local time).

From pole position, Giedo pulled away to take the lead in the early stages of the 32-lap race, pitting for four new tyres on lap 11. Giedo re-entered the race P3, behind Valsecchi and Leimer, to drive a consistent race bringing the car home to collect 19 points for Caterham Racing.

Rodolfo also made a good start and found extra pace on his second set of tyres. Throughout the long race he fought hard, showing good pace, but unfortunately an incident with another car two laps from the end sent him spinning off the track and he finished the race in 14th place. His misfortune did not end there, as after the race he was issued a 20-second penalty for setting a fastest sector time under a yellow flag. The Venezuelan will now start race two from 18th position on the grid.


Phill Spencer: "I am pleased with the results today. We have collected our first podium of the season as well as some points, which all goes to help our campaign. Congratulations to Giedo, he had a good race today. We still have some work to do to match the front runners but the engineers and crew have made really good progress. Rodolfo unfortunately had more bad luck today. His pace was there and he was fighting hard but he had a coming together and a 20-second penalty which have cost him positions.

"We have lots to do but this progress all bodes well for our season, we just need to work on being more consistent overall. As for the race tomorrow we have a lot of useful data from race two last week when Giedo was very strong, so hopefully this can aid us and we can have another strong race tomorrow."

Giedo van der Garde (P3, best lap 1:46.162): "I am very pleased with the progress we have made this week we have improved our set-up for qualifying, which is such a big thing over a race weekend. We got some points for pole position as well as for third place so I am happy about that. I got a very good start this afternoon and pulled away from the others, we made a good choice to pit when we did and my race pace afterwards was very competitive - but we still have an issue with the tyres. The DAMS team have a very good race car so we have some work to do tonight to try and understand what happens to our tyres so we can be consistently competitive during both qualifying and the race."

Rodolfo Gonzalez (P14, best lap: 1:46.769 ) "First of all, well done to Giedo for scoring our first podium this season. Unfortunately for me it was a frustrating race after such a positive qualifying session this morning. I got a good start from P7 on the grid but lacked some grip and I wasn't able to defend my position. After the pit stop the car felt great the pace was there and I managed to fight and gain some positions back. It looking like I would finish 12th but with just two laps to go a car one lap down turned into me and caused us both to spin off the track so I lost two positions. It seems I also improved under a yellow flag, so I have a 20-second penalty for race two. Hopefully tomorrow can be a better race for me."

Humphrey Corbett "After a difficult race last weekend, we will gladly take points for a pole position and a podium today. We took a risk with a new set-up we have not run before and it seems to have paid off, so I am very happy about that and well done to Giedo for finishing third. Rodolfo also got a strong start and ran in the top 10 early on in the race. His pace was good and he was happy with the car, we just need to work on getting him in the points at the end of the race. The cars once again ran faultlessly, so all in all I am a lot happier than I was 24 hours ago and feeling positive about our race tomorrow. Hopefully we can conclude our time here in Bahrain with another podium."

HRT Formula 1 Team will not attend the tests in Mugello

.
After some careful assessment, HRT Formula 1 Team has decided not to take part in the upcoming Formula 1 tests celebrated in Mugello, Italy, next week (1st-3rd May).

With the first four overseas Grands Prix completed, the cars return to Europe for the first time since they left for the inaugural event and the team is now completely focused on relocating to its new headquarters at the Caja Mágica, in Madrid. The importance of this relocation, added to the fact that the upgrade package for the F112 is programmed for the Spanish Grand Prix (11th-13th May), means that the team prefers to focus its efforts and resources on the new headquarters, work on the car and properly preparing for the Spanish Grand Prix.

Luis Pérez-Sala, Team Principal: "The start to the season was a little bit rushed for us and, since the cars were set up for the first time, we have been working on them at the Grands Prix. The team and the material have just got back from Bahrain after leaving for Australia in early March. And they return, for the first time, to the team’s new headquarters at the Caja Mágica in Madrid. This move is very important for us and by not going to Mugello we can work thoroughly on the car to prepare for the Spanish Grand Prix. We won’t have the new upgrade package until then so we’ve preferred to focus on what can contribute more to us, which is teamwork at the headquarters. And there is a lot to do”.

Hingham, UK - 24th April 2012  

Caterham F1 Team has confirmed that Rodolfo Gonzalez will be joining race drivers Vitaly Petrov and Heikki Kovalainen at the fourth official test of the 2012 F1 season, taking place at Mugello, Italy from 1st to 3rd May 2012.

Gonzalez, currently competing with Caterham Racing in the 2012 GP2 series, will be in the car on 1st May. Vitaly Petrov will take over on 2nd May and Heikki Kovalainen on 3rd May.

Rodolfo Gonzalez: “I am very excited about getting back into an F1 car at the Mugello test, and want to thank Caterham F1 Team for this opportunity. It will be my third time in an F1 car with this team and it will be another good chance for me to further my experience at the top level of global motorsport. I took part in the young driver tests in 2010 and 2011 with the team, so to be able to help their development programme mid-season is another good step in my career and something that I can take lessons from back into my GP2 season with Caterham Racing.”

Riad Asmat, Caterham Group Chief Executive Officer: “Rodolfo is developing well and we are very pleased we are playing an active role in his growth as a driver. He did a good job for us when he took part in the young driver tests, and we expect him to work to the plans he is given, deliver what we ask him to on track, and provide the engineers with the sort of feedback someone with his experience should. His day with the F1 team in Mugello will also help his ongoing development in GP2 and that will be good news for Caterham Racing, so for everyone involved this is good news.”
