F1 drivers learnt lessons from GP2
European GP winner Nico Rosberg says the Formula 1 drivers learned from the crazy GP2 races at Baku.
The F1 contest was tame in comparison, with none of the safety cars that featured prominently in the support category’s races.
“We learned a lot from GP2,” said Rosberg. “We were watching and that was mayhem so I think we picked up a few things there as well.”
Fernando Alonso added: “The show today was maybe a little bit less than expected, because we saw the GP2 race and got a bit excited, and F1 had a bit less action. It’s the way it is – some races will be more fun, some less. Maybe it will be different in 2017.”
Ant Whorton-eales has been reinstated as the winner of the second Renault UK Clio Cup race at Donington Park after winning an appeal against a technical exclusion.
The Jam Sport driver was stripped of the victory in April after the eligibility of his car was questioned by a rival team. An illegality with the brake light wire was disputed but in the end the MSA National Court ruled in favour of Whorton-eales and he got the win and the 32 points it carries back.
“That was massive,” said Whorton-eales about being reinstated. “We were pretty sure we were going to get it back but it’s nice to have it recognised by the court that we did nothing wrong. We know where we stand
