Another stab at taking a very brief spin around the Formula 1 Paddock - news ‘O late...

Lotus goes Black...
A seemingly small snippet announced during the Abu Dhabi weekend’s Grand Prix run-up was the announcement that current Lotus Racing entity will sport the iconic black & gold livery beginning in 2011. As this famous colour scheme caused quite a sensation originally as John Player special’s during the heydays of Team Lotus with such drivers as Mario Andretti, Ronnie Peterson and Ayrton Senna, while there’s still NO word on who’ll be the next Lotus Team on the F1 grid next season...

Murussia nabs Virgin
Russian Car-maker Murussia Motors has bought a significant stake in Virgin Racing and the team will become Murussia Virgin Racing beginning in 2011, whilst I was unaware that Murussia has been an associate sponsor of the team this year...

Vettel keeping busy

Unless he’s traveling first class upon Uncle Bernaughty’s Private Jet – again? As Sebastian was slated to fly from Abu Dhabi to Salzburg ‘N back to Abu Dhabi this week...

No holiday ahead for new champion Vettel

Hulkster Loses Drive
Cannot really say this is a surprise... Especially as Team Willie will be cash strapped next year and thus, The Incredible Hulk, nee Nico Hulkenberg has announced he’ll not be returning to the Grove based squad in 2011. Especially since Williams seems to be favouring 2010 GP2 Champion Pastor Maldonado – who’ll bring lotso Dinero to the team instead. Thus, I’m still sticking with my suggestion that tony Fernandes snap up The Hulkster immediately as the Scrumptious ‘Juan’s (Jarno Trulli) replacement...
