In September 2023, motorsport will become even more interesting and thrilling. In this article, we will tell you about the latest events and the most recent autosport F1 news. Let’s find out what competitions, victories, and events took place in Formula 1 and other leagues at the beginning of this fall.

Autosport F1 news: Hamilton is counting down the days until the start of Mercedes’ 2024 season

Mercedes had a tough time in Monza: Ferrari clearly outpaced them, and the W14 became the third-fastest car. George Russell and Lewis Hamilton ultimately took fifth and sixth places, highlighting their lack of maximum speed.

Hamilton’s recent qualifying failures exacerbated the situation: he started 13th in Zandvoort and 8th in Monza. Although he managed to climb up the rankings and earn valuable points in both cases, Mercedes was unable to surpass Red Bull.

Hamilton acknowledged the need to improve his results in the championship, stating that “racing is fairly straightforward for him, he just needs to perform better in qualifying… Right now, they are stuck with our current car, which is third fastest, which is very unpleasant for all of them, and they are eagerly awaiting improvements in February.”

In Monza, Hamilton opted for a non-traditional strategy for tire selection. On the first lap, he chose a harder compound, which only two other drivers also opted for. He expressed doubts about the durability of the tire and questioned the timing of his pit-stop, but managed to handle the tires well and overtake several opponents, including Fernando Alonso, Oscar Piastri (with a slight collision and a five-second penalty), Lando Norris, and Alex Albon, securing a respectable position in the top six. Despite some concerns, Hamilton remained focused on overcoming the challenges posed by the Monza circuit.

Andretti Autosport will undergo rebranding as they participate in Formula 1

The famous American racing company, Andretti Autosport, is undergoing a rebranding as “Andretti Global” to reflect the name of its parent company. This significant rebranding is not dependent on the results of its bid to participate in Formula 1 in partnership with the American automotive giant, Cadillac, as many might assume. The company’s wide-ranging involvement spanning six continents showcases its expertise in various types of motorsport, including IndyCar and Formula E.

Autosport F1 news: Alex Palou commented on the drama surrounding McLaren

Alex Palou has finally revealed the reasons that led him to break his contract with McLaren for 2024. He stated that he had “no real opportunities in Formula 1” with McLaren.

The Spanish driver’s rejection of McLaren resulted in the British company taking legal action against him. Rumor has it that McLaren is seeking compensation of between $20 and $30 million from him and his racing company ALPA Racing USA, in order to recover invested funds and the advance payment made to him.

IndyCar motorsport news: Juri Vips made an impressive debut

The Estonian driver performed excellently as a part of the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team, finishing right where he qualified: in 18th place.

He drove from start to finish without any mishaps and was the best participant – and newcomer – among the tail-enders.

Despite some similarities with his driving in Formula 2, in which the 23-year-old Vips competed in 2020-22, he had to adapt to the nuances of the Indy car.

Vips is vying for a permanent position on the team next year, and when asked if he wants to compete more in the IndyCar, he replied, “Yes, definitely.”

Predictions for the upcoming races at the Singapore Grand Prix

For Max Verstappen, starting positions have become inevitable, and he has now won 10 consecutive victories, breaking Sebastian Vettel’s previous record of nine wins.

On September 17th at the Marina Bay for the Singapore Grand Prix, where he has never won before, the Red Bull superstar intends to extend this streak to 11 wins.

Our partner GGBet offers the following odds for the races:

Max Verstappen – 1.25

His record-breaking 10th consecutive win in Italy means that his leadership reaches new heights and the odds of 1.25 that he will extend this streak in Singapore reflect just that.

Sergio Perez – 12.00

Max Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez is the only driver on the starting grid with two wins this season, but both were over 4 months ago. In three of the last four races, he finished in first place and is the reigning champion in Singapore. However, to achieve a third win, he needs to surpass his teammate Max Verstappen, which is almost impossible this season.

Lewis Hamilton – 15.00

To put it simply, Lewis Hamilton remains consistently productive. He has scored points in every race this season and has never finished lower than 8th place. However, he has not finished better than fourth since Silverstone, and a win this week would be a real miracle for him. Despite winning three times on this track between 2014 and 2018.

September 2023 was a busy month for motorsport with various autosport F1 news events and intrigues. Drivers and teams continue to fight for leadership, rebrandings and changes in the world of Formula 1 bring new variables, and young talents continue to show themselves on the tracks. While waiting for the next stages of the competition, we remain excited to see what news and surprises these drivers will bring us. To not miss out on motorsport news, stay tuned for updates on FBR!
