|Video| @Lotus_F1Team Transporter Jumps over #F1 Car

So it’s been a busy last few months in the background, which is why there haven’t been as many posts on |StartingGrid| Between work, and getting ready for the 2015 race season, I haven’t taken the chance to post like I’d like. (I still have a season-end karting post that I’ve been meaning to get out.)

However, in the meantime, here is a transporter jumping over a F1 car, because cool things are cool. 😉

|Video| Learn more about Jules Bianchi #ForzaJules #f1

If you’ve been following even a hint of the motorsport world over the last few days, you’ll have heard about the tragic accident that Jules Bianchi was involved in during the Japanese Grand Prix. I’m not going to talk about my opinion on the crash, or show any photos about it, because you can find things like that all over the internet.

Really what I wanted to show was an interview that Will Buxton did on Jules Bianchi this last October. Bianchi is one of those drivers that, if you’ve been following European single seaters, that you’ll know about. However, for most people he’s just been driving for a backmarker team.

|Video| Take a look at a #F1 Pit Garage (2013)

When you’re a Formula 1 fan, one of the nice things about having uncompetitive teams is that they allow the media more access to their pit garages. That’s just because the cars were so off the pace, there wouldn’t be much information for competing teams that they would want to steal for their cars.

I found a video of what the 2013 Mclaren and 2013 Caterham pit crews were doing on the cars during a Friday night. Both cars were pretty horrible, so we get to see the mechanics actually working on the cars!

Check it out before FOM nicks the video.

|Video| Kimi races a lawnmower! #F1

So it’s Friday, and my brain is tangled up in writing another article, so here is Kimi racing a lawnmower. Also I’ve got two questions for everyone.

  1. Why isn’t lawnmower racing more of a thing? I mean they already have a lawnmoyer that can go 117mph.., so why don’t we see more of that?
  2. Do you think that Ferrari’s contract only is allowing Kimi to just go lawnmoyer racing, outside of F1?

Enjoy the weekend, guys.
