EVENT COUNTDOWN

ALBERT PARK

12-15 MARCH 2015

What's The Point?

If the powers that be have their way, the end of the 2014 FIA Formula 1 World Championship season will have a novel twist to it.

The F1 Strategy Group and the Formula 1 Commission recently announced a plan to award double points for the final race of the season, which at this time is scheduled for Abu Dhabi on November 23.

Behind this initiative, apparently, is the desire to “maximize focus on the Championship until the end of the campaign”, i.e. to ensure that the title race remains alive right up to the final laps of a long and gruelling season.

When your name is DaniilVyacheslavovich Kvyat, it’s just as well for us Westerners that you like to be called Dany.

Kvyat was born in Ufa, which is in the Russian republic of Bashkortostan, approximately 1000 kilometres due east of Moscow, but moved with his family to Rome to further his racing career.

He will still be 19 when he makes his F1 debut in Melbourne, turning 20 on the weekend of round three in Bahrain.

Looking back on McLaren’s 50th year in F1 – one of their worst – you might be surprised by what rookie Kevin Magnussen said when his signing was announced.

“I’ll put it simply: this team is the best,” said the young Dane, whose father Jan made his own F1 debut in a McLaren in the Pacific Grand Prix in Japan in 1995.

“It's been my dream to drive for McLaren ever since I was a small kid,” Magnussen Jr. continued, “and it's no exaggeration to say that I've dedicated almost every day of my life to achieving the goal of becoming a McLaren Formula 1 driver.”
