Highlights of the Concluded F1 Brazilian Grand Prix, 2023 Several controversies have surrounded the year’s final sprint at Interlagos for the United States Grand Prix. From Max Verstappen seeing off Lando Norris to Mercedes’s baffling struggles and rules, there have been several talking points from this series. Verstappen winning this event after a surprise defeat to Oscar Piastri in Qatar is a major highlight. This win is the fourth one for this year after edging Lando Norris McLaren. The duo contested earlier at Interlagos, with Norris outshining the Dutchman in the initial stages. However, this was a short-lived victory as Verstappen rose to his dominant position, roaring to a 17th win, which doubled up with the fourth sprint success. Besides the Verstappen and Norris drama, Charles Leclerc was forced to pull through the Ferrari reliability misery. On the other hand, Fernando Alonso produced a masterclass defense to challenge Sergio Perez. As for Mercedes, there is more to reconsider after the races. With major highlights crowding the event, such as F1’s future tires and a calendar contract, there is more to be concluded from the Brazilian Grand Prix Final. Before we dive into a detailed look into the concluded Brazilian Grand Prix, do you love motorsports and can predict the outcome of different clashes? Check out the GGBet official site for upcoming races, predictions, and odds. Below are highlights of the F1’s San Paulo visit. Verstappen in Quest to Break the F1 Record Verstappen’s latest victory is a campaign of dominance that could see him break the 1952 hit rate by Ascari. He is a real threat and a veteran with the potential to set a new record. Vestappen’s victory (the 17th of the 2023 campaign) increased his GP to 85%. The results imply the lowest he could score is 77.3% in the Abu Dhabi and Las Vegas championships. The ranks cannot compare to the 71-year-old record set by Alberto Ascari in 1952 with 75%. No one has broken this record, but Verstappen is the man to watch. The Masterclass Defense by Alonso Alonso is known for incredible comebacks, and the Brazilian Grand Prix was no exception. His unconventional strategy against Perez earned him a worth-to-mention accolade. How he helped Esteban Ocon move to victory while holding Lewis Hamilton in 2021 is still remarkable. The concluded series featured another tactical defense that earned him a spot on the podium, summing up to an eighth title in 2023. Engine Electrics behind Leclerc’s Ferrari Reliability Distress The F1 had another rarely seen sight: a top-line driver (Leclerc) crashing on the formation lap. According to Leclerc, he thought the hydraulics were faulty, and they cut power at the engine to inhibit steering. This impacted his defense in countering the unexpected rear locking and turn six. It turned out later that the command system failed and switched off the engine and hydraulic, as cited by Fred Vasseur (Ferrari’s team boss). Leclerc terms this an unlucky encounter – he had previously encountered engine problems at Bahrain’s season opener, DNF. Both scenarios have cost him the much-coveted podium finish. This now sparks the reliability question about engine electrics even as he looks forward to having contract talks with Ferrari. More Durable Tires Are a Possibility With the conclusion of the Brazilian race, Pirelli is embarking on a new project with FIA and F1 teams. The idea is to come up with low-degradation tires by 2025. Drivers have been grappling with overheating that makes tires vulnerable. This makes it difficult to race against other competitors, even with the rains causing several rear-sliding episodes that needed careful management. Pirelli is researching this and is bound to modify this by reducing degradation, according to Mario Isola. It is an option to work on if racers can be guaranteed durable and reliable tires. Impending Race Format Changes in 2024 The just-concluded event in Brazil featured the sixth F1 2023 final sprint. The conclusion brought about a discussion with FIA to tweak the format for the third year after its debut. Proposals include the return of the GP qualification system happening on Saturday and the sprint later the same day. This means that the sprint shootout will happen on Friday afternoon. A change in the format creates more for drivers, fans, and organizers.
IMSA Wire: With Title, Wickens Shows ‘You Can Do Anything You Set Your Mind to’ After finishing second in September at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Robert Wickens joined a crowded podium ceremony with co-driver Harry Gottsacker. Wickens had little ceremonial joy to offer. He was angry about contact with Mikey Taylor that ended any chance of winning, but the runner-up finish kept Wickens and Gottsacker in the lead in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge’s Touring Car (TCR) standings. With one race remaining, news of their 20-point lead helped Wickens set aside the anger and reset the focus. “It’s tough,” Wickens said then. “We have to put our heads down. … “(The team) is doing everything right. They’re doing a good job. It’s just a bit frustrating.” Frustration eventually turned into something far better. Four weeks after that chaotic scene played out in Indy, a different, more joyful scene emerged: Wickens and Gottsacker, sitting on the hood of their Hyundai Elantra N in the pits at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, reveling in the afterglow of a championship. “It’s not how I drew it up in the weeks between IMS and here at Road Atlanta,” Wickens said. “In the end, it doesn’t matter.” Championships change everything. In Wickens’ case, that couldn’t be more literal. By lifting the trophy, Wickens acknowledged the significance of his accomplishment and shared it with the people who have followed his journey. Paralyzed from the waist down after a crash in an IndyCar Series race in 2018, Wickens willed his way back into professional racing. Not just to compete, but to win championships. “That was the goal going into it,” Wickens said. “It was obviously very optimistic, given how the championship was playing out. But that’s motorsports. It’s unpredictable. Anything can happen.” Because Wickens remained focused on the future, anything did happen. “I don’t know if it’s the nature of an athlete, or maybe it’s just me always trying to seek the next thing,” Wickens told CTV News in Canada recently. “After the race when I was talking to media, between questions I was already thinking: ‘What’s next? How can we be better than this?’ Even when I was laid up in a hospital bed in a full body cast, it was always: ‘How can I get better, get back and constantly work forward?’” After the crash, Wickens knew he still had the skills to compete against other professional racers. He just needed a way. “If I was an NHL player and got paralyzed on the ice, I couldn’t return and compete in the NHL,” he told CTV. “I would have to do the adaptive sport equivalent to that, and you wouldn’t be competing against the same people you were before. Whereas a race car driver, although my car is different – I don’t use my legs anymore, I use my hands solely – I’m racing in the same categories against the same people as I was when I was an able-bodied person.” While unpredictable at times, Wickens’ comeback was predicted. During his recovery, Wickens appeared at an IndyCar race in March 2019 and talked about returning to racing with a car equipped with hand controls for the brakes and throttle. “There have been so many remarkable drivers that have succeeded with hand controls,” Wickens said then. “It makes me believe that regardless of how my progression goes, I will be in a race car again. It’s just a matter of which car.” It happened in 2022, in a specially equipped Hyundai from Bryan Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian. At first, Wickens felt he was making rookie mistakes. As time went on, though, he became sharper, quicker and more precise. At 34, he became a champion with an unlimited future. “I would be more than happy to return back with (team owner) Bryan (Herta) and Hyundai and try to fight to protect our championship,” Wickens said. “I would love the opportunity to get into the (IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship) in some way, shape or form.” The details of his future are unknown, but the recent past was all about consistency. Wickens and Gottsacker pieced together a championship without winning a race in the No. 33 BHA Hyundai. Six runner-up finishes in a 10-race season have a way of adding up to a championship. “It just goes to show how strong we were as a team,” Wickens said. “We went through a lot of adversity. We didn’t have a perfect season, but we had very good damage limitation when we needed it. I think that really was the deciding factor.” A few other deciding factors were there, too: A racer who wouldn’t stop racing. A racer who’s still fast and skilled. A racer who has a championship in hand and an immeasurable future ahead. The championship brought it all together – past, present and future. “For me it hit pretty deep because of what I had to come through over the past five years with injuries, learning a new life and trying to get back to the career I once had,” Wickens told CTV. “I’m not in the business of motivating or encouraging people, but I love the fact that I can raise awareness for spinal cord injury through competing, not through just being there and representing. I want to represent the community by winning championships and competing and showing an injury doesn’t have to define who you are. You can do anything you set your mind to.” As the championship celebration last month at Michelin Raceway slowed down, BHA chief operating officer Sean Jones put everything into perspective. “We’ve won a few, but this one is a bit special,” Jones said. “Everyone knows Robert’s story.” Everyone, indeed.

Martinsville Speedway and the YMCA Team Up to Host Holiday Run Festival to Support 29th Annual Toy Drive Martinsville Speedway is partnering with the YMCA to host a Holiday Run Festival on Saturday, Dec. 2, the same day as the annual Christmas Toy Drive. The track announced the double feature event earlier this year; however, updates to the schedule have been made and are noted below. The Holiday Run Festival will feature the Southside 10K and the Youth in Motion 5K, with a portion of each entry fee going directly towards the Toy Drive’s fundraising efforts, benefiting Grace Network of Martinsville and Henry County. This will be the 29th year Martinsville Speedway has hosted the toy drive giving fans the opportunity to drive around the historic half-mile by donating to the cause. “As we announced earlier this year, the Annual Toy Drive is back at Martinsville Speedway, and this year we’ve expanded our efforts in bringing the greater community together with the help of our partners at the YMCA,” said Clay Campbell, Martinsville Speedway President. “As we get closer to the event, we look forward to welcoming all our friends, families and neighbors to our historic short track for a full day of festive celebrations this holiday season.” Those in the greater Martinsville region can start their morning with the Youth in Motion 5K, beginning at 9 a.m., or the Southside 10K, beginning at 10 a.m., then trade their running shoes for tires during the track laps event at the speedway, now taking place from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. Community members can donate a new unwrapped toy or $25 for the opportunity to drive laps around the iconic Virginia track in their personal vehicles. For laps around the track, drivers must sign waivers and be 18 years of age or older with a valid state-issued driver’s license. All participants must adhere to Virginia state laws regarding the usage of seat belts and child safety restraints. “The team at Miles in Martinsville is very excited to partner with Martinsville Speedway to present the 2023 Holiday Run Festival,” said Joe Philpott, an official of Miles of Martinsville. “We have historically run a December 5K for the benefit of our local Youth in Motion program. The program is designed to develop fitness and self-esteem in young people through the use of mentors and running. This partnership will allow us to add a 10K competition and create a true festival atmosphere. We think that the opportunity to run at the Speedway will be attractive and exciting to runners of all ages.” The donated toys and monetary donations will be distributed to area children through Grace Network of Martinsville and Henry County, which is a faith-based, first-stop center for resources for families in crisis. The organization supports those in the community who need support to keep a roof over their heads, homes warm and lighted, and food on the table with short-term assistance and long-term solutions.

Fall Brawl Winner Kade Brown Sets Sights on Florence Motor Speedway Win On the heels of a dominating victory in last Saturday night’s Fall Brawl at Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway, teenage sensation Kade Brown returns to Florence (S.C.) Motor Speedway for Saturday night’s South Carolina 400, looking to continue his impressive 2023 racing season. The 2023 Hickory Motor Speedway track champion is no stranger to the historic 4/10-mile Diamond of the Southeast short track. Last season, Brown captured the Florence Motor Speedway track championship, which aided him in conquering the South Carolina State Championship. With more than 40 Late Model Stock Car competitors looking to add a Florence crown jewel to their trophy cases this weekend, Brown would love nothing more than to capture another checkered flag in his anticipated penultimate race of the season. “I feel really good about heading into this race weekend,” said Brown. “Anytime you can return to a track where you have much experience is already a positive. This weekend’s race, though, isn’t a weekly show; it will be one of the season’s toughest Late Model Stock Car races. “I feel confident in our team that we will not only be able to step up to the challenge but, like Hickory Motor Speedway last weekend, have an opportunity to be a serious contender for the race win.” Over the past two seasons, Brown has visited Victory Lane at Florence Motor Speedway seven times, including a victory earlier this season. With his third South Carolina 400 on deck for Saturday, November 18, and looking to improve on his 14th-place result last fall, Brown hopes to utilize some of the same track fundamentals in his quest for his eighth track triumph. “Even though the race is 250 laps, I feel like you can apply a lot of the fundamentals of a traditional weekly show into the South Carolina 400,” explained Brown. “You definitely have to keep up with the track changes, lap traffic, and, of course, tire conservation is pivotal. “There will be comers and goers on Saturday night, but whoever has the best balance and who can keep their momentum up while working both lanes of the race track when needed should be in a good spot. Luckily, we know where we need to be when we unload, so we’ll see how practice goes and go from there. With a stacked field of competitors for Saturday night’s race, including NASCAR Hall of Famer Dale Earnhardt Jr., 2024 NASCAR Cup Series Rookie of the Year candidate Josh Berry, Stewart Haas Racing’s Ryan Preece and Late Model stalwarts Stephen Nasse, Brenden Queen and Sam Yarbrough, among others. “In such prestigious races like the South Carolina 400, it is important to know who you are racing with,” added Brown. “I always try to race my competitors with respect because I would like that same respect in return. It’s also an opportunity to learn from some of the best of the best. “There are a lot of great race car drivers that are chasing the same checkered flag as me on Saturday. I continue to learn as much as I can with every race. The goal remains the same each race, but the opportunity to strengthen my craft never changes and when you race drivers among the likes of Dale Earnhardt Jr., Josh Berry, Preece and Josh Williams, you inhale every piece of intel you can.” ValAsta, Carolina Driveline, Race City Steel and Puryear Tank Lines will be the primary partners on Brown’s No. 23 Chevrolet for the Saturday night showdown. “I am lucky to have great partners that allow me to go out there all year and live a dream,” explained Brown. “Without them, this weekend and this season would not have been possible. Celebrating in Victory Lane for the second consecutive weekend is the biggest thank you that I can give them and a return trip there on Saturday night is what I am aiming for.” Following his 29th race of the season, Brown is tentatively scheduled to complete his season in the Thanksgiving Classic at Southern National Motorsports Park on November 25, 2023. The 2023 South Carolina 400 at Florence Motor Speedway will be shown exclusively on FloRacing, the streaming home of all NASCAR Roots properties. FloRacing’s coverage of Saturday’s action is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. ET. That’s when qualifying will begin for all three divisions (Street Stocks, Mini Stocks and Late Models). Pre-race ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. ET, immediately followed by feature racing. Twin Late Model heat races will begin the feature action, followed by the Street Stock and Mini Stock races. The 250-lap Late Model feature will close the night. Brown’s plans for the 2024 racing season will be announced in due course.
