In brief

Verstappen: high-pressure Zandvoort win “really nice”

Verstappen, who won 10 races during the 2021 Formula 1 season, said that the Dutch Grand Prix was a particular stand-out for him, during his maiden championship season.

The Red Bull driver controlled the race on F1’s return to the country it last raced in 36 years earlier.

“The memory in Zandvoort with my home crowd winning, there was a lot of pressure on me to win it, but then to do it was really nice,” said Verstappen. “But luckily, there were a lot of good memories throughout the season.”

Formula E agrees financial limits for teams and manufacturers in Gen3

Formula E has agreed new financial limits, putting in place a hard cost cap for teams where it had previously relied on an overall cost limitation on cars.

The current (2021-22) season is the last for the ‘Gen2’ chassis. For the subsequent two years, teams will be limited to €13 million spending per season, with some exceptions such as driver salaries (consistent with the Formula 1 cost cap). Powertrain manufacturers will have €25 million to spend on research and development over a two-year period.

The 2021-22 calendar was also updated to remove unconfirmed rounds and delete the previously-listed return to Sanya, China. The Berlin and Rome rounds will become double-headers, replacing those events.

Formula 2 post-season testing line up finalised

Formula 2’s post-season testing entrants have been confirmed, with several drivers making moves up to or within the series. Formula 3 champion Dennis Hauger, who won his title with Prema steps up to their F2 squad and Juan Manuel Correa – who was severely injured during the Spa crash which claimed the life of Anthoine Hubert – returns to F2 machinery for the first time since 2019.

New F2 entrants Van Amersfoort Racing will run junior series veteran Jake Hughes for the first two days of testing, before his car will be taken over by Cem Bolukbasi.
