What makes a great driver greater?

What makes a great driver stand up from the rest of well talented drivers in F1? This is a question that many of motorsport fans ask themselves from time to time and certainly it is a bit tricky trying to answer it. However there are certain conditions that let you determine if a driver has the skills to make a difference or not regardless of race winnings, pole positions or podium finishes. In formula one as in many other motorsport series you race against competition and also against your “teammate”. This last fact lets you determine many times who is the driver who wants to win so badly that will do anything to mentally subjugate their teammates to the number two drivers spot within the team and that there is a sign of a driver who has the determination to win.

Benjamin Breny could be the first Dominican to drive in Formula 1

Benjamin Breny is a 21 years old Dominican raised in Belgium with a clear goal in his mind, get to Formula 1. Modern Formula 1 more than ever requires that the drivers not only have talent, it also requires from the driver a financial support so that the team could have better financial foundation to confront the high costs of running a complete season in Formula 1. This attempt by a Dominican is not the first one but at least is a serious one. Porfirio Rubirosa a Dominican Playboy raced in formula 1, just a single race and don’t even finished it.

Benjamin seems to be a decent driver with good chances of getting to the maximum category if he gets the financial support needed.

In this video Benjamin is doing a lap of the famous circuit Spa Francorchamps located in Belgium where he was raised.

Formula One in Dominican Republic

It has been more than two year now that I got the chance to view a formula one car in action. Thanks to Red Bull promotions through out the world and local car dealer Peynado GA we had the opportunity to saw Jaime Alguersauari riding a Red Bull Formula 1 car at the popular known Malecon. It was an amazing day I can recall, although we had a hard time getting to our viewing spot due to the large crowd that gathered there to see the show.

However those 10 to 15 minutes of hearing the noise of an engine going 18,000 rpm and the smell of the rubber paid off the hard time we had that day. Formula One is the top category in racing and in these videos you will see why it drags so many spectators worldwide year after year.

Here is a short video of a carro publico (public transportation in dominican republic) vs a formula 1 car. It is very funny considering how the carro publico took advange and did a u turn instead of going all the way like the f1 did. This type of audacy is the one these drivers show day after day in the street of Santo Domingo.

Here is another short video of Juan Pablo Montoya driving the f1 BMW car in the street of london.

To ended up a video of Formula One car in the beach, specifically at Juanillo Beach Cap Cana Dominican Republic.

Who is going to take Felipe Massa place in 2013?

Felipe needs to look for another seat in 2013
Felipe may have to leave the team next year

Much have been said about the 2013 season and the Ferrari team. Right now I think any formula one driver, fan and even detractor of the sport knows that despite all the nice things Ferrari have said about how they care and trust Felipe Masa and how confident they are that he will be up to form once again, Felipe Masa will have to look for another seat for next year’s championship. Of course neither the team and obviously the driver haven’t said anything about this until negotiations are at least 80% done. Now this brings us to the big question who is that driver that will take his place? is it a current formula 1 driver? is he a gp2 driver? is he a nascar driver? nahh just kidding.

The question is yet to be answered, Read more
