Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jac­ques Villeneuve has left the Ven­turi For­mula E team af­ter just three races and will be re­placed by Bri­ton Mike Con­way. The 1997 For­mula 1 world cham­pion failed to score a point in any of the open­ing races and the team said on Twit­ter there had been a “dis­agree­ment over the fu­ture di­rec­tion of the team”. Con­way will make his de­but in next month’s Buenos Aires round but has pre­vi­ously tested a car for Dragon ahead of the in­au­gu­ral sea­son in 2014… New two-litre, four-cylin­der en­gines will not be in­tro­duced to DTM un­til 2019. The new en­gines were the cen­tre­piece of the in­com­ing Class One tech­ni­cal reg­u­la­tions that were due to be in­tro­duced for the start of 2017. But Audi, BMW and Mercedes have had con­cerns about the cost of de­vel­op­ing new mo­tors in such a short time so the new rules have now been de­layed… The Abt team will switch from run­ning Audis to Bent­leys in this year’s Nur­bur­gring 24 Hours. The team will field a pair of workssup­ported Bent­ley Con­ti­nen­tal GT3S in the en­duro in May.
