Formula One racing's third and final in-season test of 2014 begins at Silverstone on Tuesday, with a host of young drivers set to be given a run out alongside the established stars. But perhaps the most intriguing part of the test will be Pirelli's trial of 18-inch tyres. F1 cars currently use 13-inch tyres, but the Italian manufacturer has suggested that running with larger wheels and tyres would lead to greater technology transfer between F1 tyres and road car rubber More...

Qualifying analysis - rain wreaks havoc on Hamilton's race hopes
July 06, 2014 (00:00) [ Indexed from Formula1.com ]
It's a long time since we've had such a topsy turvy qualifying session as that seen at Silverstone on Saturday. Q1 began wet enough for Pirelli's intermediates and dried out sufficiently for slicks, before more rain forced a repeat of that process for Q2. Q3 began dry enough in most places for slicks from the get-go, but the way in which the final sector of the track dried so suddenly between out laps and flying laps caught everyone by surprise. The 2014 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix will thus have one of the most mixed-up grids in recent times More...
