What's happening this weekend?

There are supposed to be two of our drivers in action this weekend, Parthiva Sureshwaren & Jules Bianchi. Let's start with the less complicated situation, Jules Bianchi.

This weekend Formula Renault 3.5 takes place at the Moscow Raceway in Russia.  There are two races, as per the norm with this series; on Saturday & Sunday respectively.

After Jules' success last time out at the Nürburgring (where the Frenchman scored his first win), he will be hoping for more big points this weekend to keep up his championship charge. The problem that Jules has is that in all two-race weekends so far this season, he has yet to score points in both races - usually due to rotten luck. If he's going to be a genuine title threat he needs to find some consistency.

This is how things currently stand in the championship:

Drivers' Championship (1st -7th):
1) Sam Bird (86 pts)
2) Robin Frijns (86)
3) Nick Yelloly (76)
4) Marco Sørensen (71)
5) Jules Bianchi (61)
6) Kevin Magnussen (57)
7) Nico Müller (50)

They use the same scoring system as F1 which means 50pts are up for grabs this weekend (25pts x 2races).

As for Parthiva Sureshwaren, he was due to be in action this weekend ... but he isn't. F2 is certainly in action at Brands Hatch, but Parthiva did not take part in practice one. I'm not sure why that is, but i'll try find the reason and get back to you on that.

That reminds me, i am still waiting for Formula Pilota China to publish the standings after the last race where Parth Ghorpade and Raj Bharath did so well. When i get them, you guys will be the first to know!
