Will Tatiana Calderón Will Be the First Woman to Sit In a Formula 2 Seat – What’s All the Fuss?

Car Buyer USA - We Buy Cars

The Arden Team says, yes! News broke on February 22, 2019, that Tatiana Calderón would be joining their Formula 2 team for the 2019 season. This will make Tatiana the first woman driver since the GP2/F2’s inception – 2005 – of modern running. However, will she actually sit in a seat? Race fans took to social media in an outrage claiming her race results history prove she is not a good fit for the series. By the way, before we get into this more, we pay cash for cars, trucks and suvs and you can sell your car quick to us. Fast, safe, and easy really is the best way to sell a car. Get an instant cash offer now and stop worrying “how to sell my car quick!”

Speaking of history, it has been proven time and time again that women really shouldn’t be doing anything that’s a “man’s thing”. Take voting, welding, serving in the armed forces, flying a plane, or running a corporation for instance; why would motorsports be any different? Shutter the thought that Susie Wolff received an MBE, Danica Patrick for racing in NASCAR, Simona de Silvestro in IndyCar, Natalie Decker in NASCAR Truck Series, and so on and so on. You get the point.

Sure, Calderón has many “nevers” under her helmet and the critics are all over it; but what do the critics say of Sean Gelael’s four years in GP2/F2 with not a single win? Or, his record of never finishing better than a massive spot called 15th place? Then there is Roberto Merhi; what do they say about his demotion from F2 to F1 and still not scoring a top 10 spot? The list can go on and on here too.

What are some of Calderón’s accomplishments? She was the first female karting driver to win a national championship in Columbia. In the 2001 Pro Mazda Championship, she finished 6th overall. She was the first woman in the British F3 series to secure a podium and the first to lead a European F3 race. Not to mention she has served as a Sauber – Alfa Romeo racing – development driver with more than a few impressive results testing on the track.

Given the right situation, Tatiana Calderón has proven she is a competitive driver and has earned the right and is coming into her own; and she has the qualifications to be the first woman to sit in a Formula 2 seat. Seriously, what’s all the fuss about? We pay cash for cars from women every day and we have a message for Tatiana. Sell your car quick to Car Buyer USA and we will put cash in your bank FASTer than F2’s lap, so SAFE there will be no crashing into a wall, and as EASY as crossing the finish line; and show ‘em what you are made of on your first run! Get an instant cash offer now, Tatiana Calderón and we will treat you like the winner you are. (Full disclosure: anyone thinking “sell my car quick” and looking for the best way to sell a car, it is here. Really.)

I Want to Sell My Car Quick – How to Get Rid of Smoke Smell

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, February 12, 2019

It doesn’t matter if you plan on purchasing a used car or if you’re thinking “I want to sell my car quick”, or you’re just starting to throw the idea around. If you don’t like the smell of cigarettes and the car you find, or the one you’re selling reeks with smoke, you’ve dropped the pool of choices way down. Here at Car Buyer USA we don’t mind if the cars we take in are from previous owners who liked to light up while driving and we are experts at getting it removed. We buy cars every day all over the U.S. and many don’t only need deodorizing, but deep cleaning. We realize people of all walks-of-life, selling a car or not, may want to get rid of a smoke smell and might need a little help on how to go about it. Nevertheless, whether you’re going to sell your car quick to us, do a private sale on your own, or trade your vehicle in, it’s a good idea to get rid of smoke before a potential buyer slips away; it’s really the best way to sell a car if you’re looking to optimize the sell price.

Clean and Air It Out First

  1. Remove all belongs and every sliver of trash.
  2. Vacuum ALL the interior, this means all surfaces front to back and side to side; don’t forget to vacuum the seat covers well if you have them.
  3. Remove and vacuum the floor mats and seat covers (run them through a washer if the tag instructions allow). Note: If the floor mats are machine washable, we don’t recommend washing these together. A hose works well for the mats and laying them outside and let them air dry works well too.
  4. If possible use a handheld vacuum, or one with an attachment that will get into the deepest crannies.
  5. Clean! Clean! Clean your vehicle’s inside well. Note: Refer to your vehicle’s user manual for cleaning recommendations.
  6. A 1:1 ration of white vinegar and water in a spray bottle coupled with a microfiber cloth is a good choice for the steering wheel, interior side panels, dashboard, console, etc.
  7. # 6 may work well for all glass and mirrors (inside and out), but a good class cleaner will remove cigarette residue as well.

Time to Ventilate

  1. Start the engine.
  2. Roll all the windows down.
  3. Spray an odor neutralizer into all the vents.
  4. Set the air conditioner to the lowest setting and turn the fan on high. Note: Do NOT turn the recycle the inside air on. You want the outside air to help flush out the smoke scent of the car.
  5. Change the a/c over to heat and be sure it’s on the highest setting.
  6. Repeat steps #3 and #4.

Hopefully, following these tips will omit the problem, but sometimes even the best efforts won’t remove a cigarette scent from a vehicle. Drastic measures to get it take care of would be to turn to reupholstering, new carpets, and new roof material (headliner).
