Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 17.09.18.png

Antonio Giovinazzi became the first Italian since Jarno Trulli to compete in a Formula Once race this weekend, standing in for Pascal Wehrlein for the Sauber F1 Team in Melbourne. The Scuderia Ferrari development and reserve driver was called up to the team with less than 12 hours notice following concerns being raised around Wehrlein’s ability to complete a race distance due to an injury sustained in the off season impacting his training schedule.

Having completed 2 days of pre-season testing for the team, Antonio Giovinazzi, found himself able to push team mate Marcus Ericsson throughout the race weekend, qualifying just on place behind him on the grid. In the race Giovinazzi bought his Sauber C36 home to finish 12th overall, whilst out of the points, team members and those outside the team were keen to praise his performance:

“A very impressive performance from Antonio during his first Formula One race. He showed his potential as well as what the car is capable of. The lap times were quite satisfying”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal

Ferrari President Sergio Marchionne, in his celebration of his Scuderia’s return to the top step added a note of recognition to Giovinazzi:

“Congratulations to Antonio for his debut in Formula One”

Commenting on his own performance Giovinazzi added:

“It was a good race, and I am happy with my performance today. My objective was to gain more experience and collect mileage in the car. I will sit together with my engineers to analyze areas where I can improve. I want to thank the Sauber F1 Team and Scuderia Ferrari again for this opportunity. It was an amazing race weekend for me.”

Italian Antonio Giovinazzi will replace Pascal Wehrlien for the Australian Grand Prix this weekend with the Sauber F1 Team. The Scuderia Ferrari development and reserve will make his Formula One debut sitting in for the German due to niggling fitness concerns following a incident during the pre-season Race of Champions Event.

My fitness level is not as it should be for a full race distance because of my training deficit. I explained the situation to the team yesterday evening. Therefore, the Sauber F1 Team has decided not to take any risks. It is a pity, but the best decision for the team.” Comments Wehrlien.

At this time both team and driver remain confident Pascal will return to the cockpit for the second round of the 2017 season in China.

“We have great respect of Pascal’s openness and professionalism. This decision was definitely not an easy one for him, it underlines his qualities as a team player. The focus is now on his fitness level, and in such a situation we do not take any unnecessary risks. Pascal will be in China as planned.” Remarked Team Principal Monisha Kaltenborn.

Giovinazzo completed Fp3 in P20 as he aclimitises to the track and continues team integration.

Formula E: Interview with Mahindra Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist

Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 10.03.07.png

Earlier today Mahindra Racing Formula E team announced the signing of Felix Rosenqvist for the 2016/ 17 FIA Formula E World Championship. The partnership will see the 24-year-old Swede line up alongside Nick Heidfeld as the team embark on their third season. JWGP caught up with Felix during the filming for the announcement of the team’s new partnership with Errea Sport.

JW: Felix, how much time have you spent behind the wheel of a Formula E car, what are your first impressions?

FR: In total I’ve been in the car for 8 days. Mahindra have a private test track just outside of Barcelona, we’ve been working flat out to maximise our time before the first group test at Donington Park. The level of dedication from the team has been incredible. We’ve been working from 7AM to 10PM on every day of testing. The team use a test car for private testing, I haven’t driven a Formula E car before so can’t really pass comment on changes from Season 2 to season 3, but the team seem very happy with the progress.

Driving a Formula E car is very different to Indycar or a DTM car, in those cars when you are doing 200 KMPH and come off the power it is almost like applying a brake. In a Formula E car, when you come off the power the car will just keep going. It feels counter-intuitive at first, but you soon get used to it.

JW: Have you spend much time with your team mate Nick Heidfeld? What are his thoughts on the M3Electro compared to last season’s car?

FR: Nick was around for 2 of the days I was testing. I think our driving styles will compliment each other. Nick is highly technical, focused on the fine details to optimise. Where as my approach is more toward making the most of the package I have. In bringing our styles together we should be able to push the team forward. With respect to progress from the team from S2 to S3, Nick has reported a positive step in performance. The first indication of this should be seen in Donington, but in reality the true pace won’t be seen until Hong Kong.

JW: What drew you to Formula E? Have you been following the series?

FR: Formula E represents a new and different type of challenge in motorsport.  I have a good record around street circuits (most notably winning the 2015 Macau F3 race) The cars and frenetic approach to a race appeal to me.  The racing has been enjoyable to watch. I’ve been impressed with the performances of Robin Frijns and Felix Da Costa, the other ‘younger’ drivers on the grid. I hop we are in a position to challenge the ‘old’ boys in this season.

JW: Does racing in Formula E rule out options in other championships for you?

FR: Not at all, I think of myself as a jobbing driver. I’ve been racing or testing almost every week this year.  Racing in Indycar is still on the agenda, and DTM, whilst initially only for Moscow is still an option. I like to be busy, the Formula E calendar and race format allows me to be just that.

JW: Finally, what are your hopes for the Season with Mahindra Racing

FR: Until we start the group testing its impossible to know exactly who we are competing against. I hope to perform strongly and surprise a few of the established drivers.

Thanks to Felix for taking time out during his day with Errea Sport. Best of luck for the season ahead!
