So what about next year ? According to new stipulations a team can use only one wind tunnel.

Don't get too excited as these rumours have been around for at least since Vj took over as a potential move/expansion :D

There were very strong rumours the Brackley facility was to be closed soon in any case due to the CFD upgrade and the fact the tunnel was so old it couldn't be wholly relieved upon.

I am sure I remember being told several were put on notice but I do tend to forget quite a bit of stuff I'm told. #-o

however I was told 'something is in the air' ... I am putting two and two but I feel certain the Mexican interest will be more than just as sponsor.

Hulkenberg to race for Porsche LMP1-H in Lemans 24h and Spa 6h (2015 WEC). Great to see that Force India lets its driver race in other categories. Hopefully more teams will release their drivers for big races like Indy500, Daytona 500, Bathurst 1000 etc. Would love to see how F1 drivers would fare in other types of racing cars.

Well, you cant really compare driving a small rally stage in a Skoda Fabia and driving a Porsche prototype

McNish had a huge crash a few years ago, Duval this year also, they just walked away
These top championships (WRC, F1, WEC) are really safe

So Sahara Force India have begun testing an "LED wing display" under the supervision of the FIA. The hopes are to display the drivers name and tire that they're running on:

I believe MSC and Nico Rosberg tested something similar in 2012...the shark fin display...albeit not LED / live:

That is Brendon Hartley testing for Mercedes in Magny-Cours in 2012 if I remember correctly. That shark fin is not a display though. It is a place for stickers indicating driver's name and number

Yeah, it's official now. Good move, IMO. Here's what's inside the tunnel - http://f1framework.blogspot.com/2012/12 ... nnels.html
