Due to unforeseen circumstances, two-time champion will be pumping gas at Maranello rather than racing at Bahrain this weekend.

Many of the drivers have expressed their displeasure with the new turbo-era of Formula 1. However, instead of talking about it, Fernando Alonso has taken action about it, and says he refuses to step into the F1 paddock again “until the sound problem is fixed”

Alonso planned on competing in the 2014 Challenge for the rest of the season, but unfortunately finds himself out of a ride after Giancarlo Fissichella signed a contract securing the final spot in the field yesterday. The only job left at Maranello was gas station attendant.

The question was raised as to whether Power had accelerated and then slowed down again, initiating the carnage. However, after reviewing the replays and telemetry, the stewards could find no fault with Power’s restart.
