World First V8 Race Format Announced

V8 Supercars fans are in for non-stop action at the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix, with the Australian Grand Prix Corporation today announcing an all-new race format.

The format will be a world first for V8 Supercars and has been designed to ensure enthralling racing across all four races.

Each race will feature a double-file rolling start, which will create additional excitement, especially on the long run down the main straight into Turn 1. Drivers will also line up side-by-side for any Safety Car restarts across the event.

While the Drivers’ World Championship has been in existence since 1950, the first year of the organized series we now know, a separate title for constructors came into being only in 1958.

It was won by British marque Vanwall, a one-off ‘look what we can do’ effort by wealthy industrialist Tony Vandervell to show what British racing teams could achieve despite the consistently under-performing presence of BRM.

Brown, Stanaway and Thornton named for the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge

Ex-AFL star Nathan Brown, Nine News sports presenter Clint Stanaway and comedian Dave Thornton, have been revealed as the latest drivers to take to the grid for the Mazda3 Celebrity Challenge, as part of the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Securing their spots as the eighth, ninth and tenth drivers to heat up the Albert Park Circuit from March 13-16, the three drivers will first need to take part in gruelling training before battling it out behind the wheel.

“Rivalries in sport are awesome.”

That’s Mark Webber speaking, and he should know: he was involved in one of the most intense rivalries we have seen for the last few years during his great Formula 1 career at Red Bull.

Webber was looking back at the Prost v Senna days when McLaren’s ‘Dream Team’ turned nightmarish and the two great drivers lost their focus because all they could see was each other.

Pressure Off Ricciardo: Coulthard

Australian Red Bull rookie Daniel Ricciardo will be under little pressure this season despite driving alongside four-times Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel, according to former team racer David Coulthard.

Coulthard says Ricciardo, who moved from the uncompetitive sister Toro Rosso team at the end of last year to replace Mark Webber, is in an ideal position ahead of next month's Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

“He’s had a great rise up to the point of driving for the world championship-winning team," Coulthard said.
