Transfer Deadline Day: Done Deals

Yesterdays end-of football Janurary Transfer Window almost went un-noticed if it wasn’t for a couple of key players bought by the top two in the Premier League. Infact year on year spending has continued to stagnate around the £130M mark.

Chelsea’s £24M signing of the Colubian winger Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina was the biggest deal of the day. They also made a profit by selling Andre Schurrie for £22M to Wolfsberg.

Most of the main deals from Chelsea’s rivals had already been done with Manchester City moving early in their purchase of Swansea striker Wilfred Bony for a fee of around £28M. Arsenal looked to strengthen their side to increase their chances of staying in the top four at the end of the season by signing defender Gabriel Paulista on the weekend from Villareal for around £12M.

It was fairly quite up north in Manchester with City having already done their deal to bring Wilfred Bony from Swansea for a fee of around £28M.

Liverpool were fairly quite during the Janurary transfers with Liverpool boss Brenden Rogers more pleased with the return of striker Danniel Sturridge to boost the team, there had been rumours of Man City midfielder James Milner moving to Anfield but it looks as though he’ll be staying at City for the remainder of the season.

The most suprising signing of the window came from Manchester United who signed young 21-year-old defender Andy Kellet on loan from Championship side Bolton. Midfielder Darren Fletcher also moved from Man United to West Brom, Fletcher admitted the that Man U did not want the player but with a permanent place on JVG’s side he is more excited about the challenge ahead at West Brom.

Further down the table Southampton took midfielder Filip Djuricic on loan from Benfica and bought Ryan Bertand from Chelsea. Tottenham also loaned right-winger Aaron Lennon.

Crystal Palace were the team of the day bringing four new players to the club which includes winger Wilfried Zaha from Man United and midfielder Lee Chung-yong from Bolton.

Ferrari launches SF15-T 2015 car

Ferrari unveiled the eagerly anticipated SF15-T from their headquarters in Maranello, which they hope will see the team return to winning ways. The team failed to win a single race last year which resulted in both of their drivers being very critical about the performance of the 2014 car and the inevitable exit of double world champion Fernando Alonso from the team.

Following last years poor season saw a complete restructuring of management, with Sergio Marchionne replacing Luca Cordero di Montezemolo as president and Maurizio Arrivabene as team principal. Ferrari have a steep hill to climb as there was a noticeable lack of horse power in the Ferrari engine compared to the performance of the Mercedes hybrid power train engine which saw Mercedes team win all but three races last year.

The SF15-T will be the first car to be fully designed by Technical Director James Allison. During the unveiling he highlighted the areas of improvement the team have made to the 2015 car:

“Last year, we had an unacceptably large gap in our performance and we have tried to ensure the weaknesses on the ’14 car were put right.”

The longer front nose and tight rear body look very similar to that of the new McLaren-Honda so to conform to the new FIA 2015 F1 regulations. Allison also emphasized on the amount to attention spent to the power unit of the Ferrari engine and ERS (energy-recovery system), saying that the engines raw performance has been improved which he hopes will narrow the gap to the leading Mercedes engine.

The team has an all-star line up of drivers in world champion Kimi Raikkonen and four-times world champion Sebastian Vettel who replaces Fernando Alonso as their number 1 driver.

With a complete re-structuring of the team and two of th best driver in the sport, Ferrari could have a good title chance this year, it’s all really down to how much ground has been made on engine performance.


Will McLaren-Honda make history again?

McLaren announced towards the middle of last season that they would be partnering with Honda to provide them with their engine for 2015, and the car they unveiled today (the MP4-30) has been the result of a years hard work of design, wind-tunnel testing and development between them. It is the first car the two companies have released together since 1992, during their pervious partnership they won 4 consecutive world championships and with Ron Dennis returning to act as team principal they have the potential to cause the biggest upset for the season ahead.

Having failed to win a single race for the past two seasons and with the exit of double world champion Lewis Hamilton moving to Mercedes in 2013 its a challenge boss Ron Dennis relishes and hope to rectify:

“I’m positive that, together, we’ll get to where we want to be: winning Grands Prix and eventually World Championships as McLaren-Honda”.

Chief Engineer Peter Prodromou rejoined McLaren last season from Red Bull and is head of aerodynamics and following the success of the Red Bull in previous years the new McLaren-Honda bears similar resemblance such as the compact rear and detailed aero on the front of the wing to gain maximum downforce.

McLaren have two excellent veterans and world driver champions in Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button both who appeared to be optimistic about the season ahead, Alonso said during the unveiling: “The new car is looking good; it’s a very interesting project from what I felt and heard from engineers and designers. There’s a new philosophy in the team, a new way of approaching the car and everyone’s excited about this new partnership with Honda.

The new MP4-30 will be put through its paces next week when the first pre-season testing begins in Portugal, Fernando Alonso will be first to take the car out on day one and then the car will be shared between Alonso and Button for the remaining 3 days.

Be sure to keep up to date with BetOTG.

Williams reveal F1 2015 “contender”

Williams F1 Team have released pictures of their 2015 car which they hope to narrow the gap between them and front-runners of Red Bull and Mercedes. Williams will hope to continue the progress they made last year were they ended the season in a respectful third in the championship, which resulted from successful races such as second place finishes in Abu Dhabi, Germany and Britain.

The FW37 will use the Mercedes turbo hybrid engine which dominated the field last year and with comments coming from Renault this week suggesting they are still playing catch up to Mercedes, it puts Williams in a good position.

Chief technical officer Pat Symonds explained the differences between FW37 and last years car, in particular was the need to find extra performance from sections of the car that had originally needed to be light, he said: “We felt we came up against design barriers in the FW36 and so took the opportunity to remove these barriers for the benefit of performance. The FW36 carried a reasonable amount of ballast, so we were able to make alterations to the design for added performance without the fear of adding excessive mass.”

The team have kept with the same drivers line-up as last year with Finnish star Valtteri Bottas and Brazilian veteran Felipe Massa. The team have also signed young 21-year-old Brit Alex Lynn to be their development driver for 2015 along side Susie Wolff who tested with them throughout last year. Alex won the GP3 feeder series in 2014.

Williams won’t have long to wait to see if all of the design and development time during the winter has paid off as pre-season testing begins this weekend on Sunday 1st February in Jerez.

BetOTG continues to provide you all of the teams car unveiling and performances during pre-season testing before the championship starts in the second week of March. Be sure to keep up with all the new that’s happening on the world of Formula 1.


Force India F1 unveils it’s new 2015 car

The Force India F1 team launched a new team livery on their previous years car to pundits in New Mexico. The new 2015 car (VJM08) will not run during the first week of pre-season testing which starts in Jerez on 1st February, instead they will run a modified 2014 car, we’ll have to wait until the second pre-season testing in Barcelona which runs from 19th-22nd February before we can see the new aerodynamics package of the 2015 car.

Following the unveiling, Technical Director Andrew Green highlighted some of the changes that will come to the new 2015 car, most noticeably will be the front-end

“It is a redesign that involved a lot of work over the winter, as the new regulations caused a loss in terms of downforce and we’ve been working to claw back all that performance.”

In addition to the new aerodynamics, the VJM08 will be powered by a Mercedes engine (the same engine manufacturer that took Lewis Hamilton to win the 2014 championship), so with improvements to both engine and chassis Force India’s boss Vijay Mallya was quite confident and looking forward to the season ahead, Mallya said: “We have two exceptional drivers who will hopefully steer the challenger to the front of the grid and a few podiums during the year.”

The team do in fact have two great young talented drivers in the Mexican Sergio Perez and German Nico Hulkenberg, both of which have proven in previous seasons their ability behind the wheel and have beaten off still competition to retain their drives for this year. But last season proved difficult to keep up with the likes of Mercedes and Red Bull and the team only achieved one podium place. Hopefully with a competitive engine and revised aero they can compete with the top teams.

BetOTG will continue to provide you all the latest news from the world of Formula 1.




Lotus F1 Team release 2015 car

With the start of pre-season testing less than a month away, Lotus have come out of the stock first with a release of an image of their new car (E23) which they hope will get the team back to winning ways in 2015.

Last year was difficult for the Lotus Team which saw them end the season in eighth place, their last win was way back in 2012 when Kimi Räikkönen took an emphatic win at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and its something that chief executive officer Matthew Carter hopes the team can get back to winning ways, during a recent interview he said:

“It is time to put the disappointment of last season behind us and benefit from 12 months of hard work; we are ready to return to our rightful place at the pinnacle of the sport.”

In addition to the new aero package Lotus have also switched engines from their traditional Renault to the new Mercedes engine which helped Lewis Hamilton clinch the world championship last year. Lotus will keep the same line-up as last year, hoping the experience of both Frenchman Romain Grosjean and Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado can achieve more podium places this year.

Technical director Nick Chester also pointed out the areas of improvements the design team have made from last years car, he said: “It’s no secret that we struggled with last year’s car so we’ve targeted every area that caused us an issue.

“We’ve made strong progress in the wind tunnel as well as in areas such as packaging and cooling. We expect the E23 to perform far, far better than its predecessor.

We don’t have long to see how the car compares to the rest of the paddock as first pre-season test starts in Jerez on 1st to 4th February.

The F1 2015 season kicks off in Melbourne on 15th March, BetOTG will be providing a full pre-season preview of all the teams and driver line-up, along with each race preview and review throughout the season, be sure to not miss out.
