Red Bull uses Formula 1 cars on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring

As part of the Red Bull Formula Nürburgring event on the same weekend as the Nürburgring 12-hour endurance race on September 10th, Red Bull is hosting a demonstration run for a Formula 1 car at the legendary 21km circuit.

It has been almost ten years since a Formula 1 car was last demonstrated on the Nordschleife in 2013, when Michael Schumacher drove a 2011 Mercedes W02 on a demonstration lap around the famous circuit.

Details of the run are yet to be released, but former McLaren and Red Bull racer Daniel Ricciardo has been signed as Red Bull’s third driver for the season, mainly to conduct demonstrations of the team’s F1 cars for marketing purposes.

Harvey was medically cleared to race in IndyCar

Rahal Letterman Lanigan driver Jack Harvey received medical treatment from IndyCar to race in Texas next month.

Harvey was involved in a multi-car accident midway through the season opener in St. Petersburg and suffered undisclosed injuries. He had planned to attend a private test at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama earlier this week but was denied clearance by IndyCar medical staff. After further evaluation, Harvey has now been cleared by IndyCar to race in Texas on April 2nd.

“We would like to thank Jack for the exceptional care provided by the IndyCar medical team and security team both on site in St. Petersburg and since then,” the team said in a statement.

Martins secures F2 pole with a seven-tenth advantage

Reigning FIA Formula 3 Champion and Alpine up-and-coming driver Victor Martins secured his maiden Formula 2 pole position by a huge seven tenths ahead of Oliver Bearman and championship leader Theo Pourchaire in third place.

Martin’s best time was nearly three-quarters of a second quicker than Bearman as he secured pole for Sunday’s feature race in the closing minutes of the session. Qualifying was halted with less than two minutes remaining when Arthur Leclerc pulled up on the exit of Turn 22, denying many drivers a final opportunity to improve their own times.

Jak Crawford will start for today’s sprint from the pole in a reverse grid position with Bahrain sprint winner Ralph Boschung alongside on the front row.
