Formula One Proves Dedication To Cost Cutting By Making Teams Build Extra Car For Three-Day Tire Test

Formula One Proves Dedication To Cost Cutting By Making Teams Build Extra Car For Three-Day Tire Test

Starting for the 2021 season Formula One is going to be maintaining a strict cost cap on the ten teams involved in the sport. Traditionally the teams that spend the most are the teams that perform the best, and by reducing that max spends the series hopes to close the gap from the frontrunners to the backmarkers. This dedication to a reduction in costs for teams has the potential to change...

Crash Testing For Race Cars Is Just As Intense As You'd Expect

Crash Testing For Race Cars Is Just As Intense As You'd Expect

We often talk about crash tests for street cars , since those are the cars we drive and knowing how they’ll handle an impact is important. But race cars need to be crash tested as well, because safety in auto racing is more than just slapping on a halo or something similar and immediately calling it good.

I was poking around about Formula One this week when I noticed a mention of F1 crash...

The Most Important Part Of Working Your Dream Job Is Keeping The Dream Alive

The Most Important Part Of Working Your Dream Job Is Keeping The Dream Alive

Teenage me always thought the most magical place on a race track was on the other side of the fence, earning a paycheck doing what she loved. I stared at the infield during races when I was younger, wishing I had the status or credentials or teleportation ability to get myself down there from the grandstands, knowing I’d be the happiest person in the world when I did.

But just like there’s a...

Haas F1 Boss: You'd Be Naive To Think Smaller Teams Could Fight For Wins In 2021

Haas F1 Boss: You'd Be Naive To Think Smaller Teams Could Fight For Wins In 2021

When it comes to Formula One, we’ve all been under the impression that 2021 will be our year—well, maybe not our year, but the year that more than three teams will actually be able to compete due to new regulations for leveling the field. But Haas F1 boss Guenther Steiner wants you to know that the new rules won’t magically make smaller teams like his competitive for wins.

The 2021 season...

F1 Comeback Story Robert Kubica Will Stay In The Series As Reserve Driver For Alfa Romeo

The Formula One dream looked like it might be over for Robert Kubica at the end of last year, when his team let him go after he clawed his way back to F1 following a horrific 2011 rally crash that partially severed his arm. But it isn’t over yet, because Alfa Romeo Racing just named Kubica as its reserve driver.

Alfa Romeo also found a new sponsor, and would now like for you to call it “Alfa...

F1 Midfielders Want More TV Time, Reminding Us That We're Missing All Of The Good Stories

F1 Midfielders Want More TV Time, Reminding Us That We're Missing All Of The Good Stories

A staple of modern Formula One is the fact that it’s split into two tiers: the top teams and the rest of the field. But there have been grumbles in the rest of the field for a while now, and those grumbles have been over how much television attention they’re getting—which is, to drivers like Sergio Perez, not enough.

Motorsport.com reports that Perez, who finished 10th of 20 drivers in the

FIA President Says It'll Be 'Decades' Before F1 Goes Electric, If It Even Does

On the surface, the electric Formula E Championship continues to gain ground in open-wheel racing. The FIA, the governing body also over Formula One, will soon begin recognizing Formula E as world championship , and manufacturers are flocking to it by the season. But all of that isn’t putting pressure on F1 to go electric—at least, not that F1 is letting us onto.

In fact, Motorsport.com quotes...

Ferrari Wants A Woman In Its F1 Development Program

Ferrari Wants A Woman In Its F1 Development Program

Female drivers have been a rare thing in what’s normally regarded as the peak of open-wheel racing, Formula One, for a plethora of reasons. But there have been a few women in development ranks in recent years, and there may soon be a female driver in the program at F1’s second-best team as well: Ferrari.

Of course, “may” and “will” are two very different words. We’ll just have to see whether...

How To Lose A Formula One Championship, As Told By Ferrari

How To Lose A Formula One Championship, As Told By Ferrari

Every season, Ferrari looks promising. Formula One’s pre-season testing starts the rumor mill churning: this might just be the year Ferrari beats Mercedes! Ferrari is faster! Its engine is better! Aerodynamically, Ferrari is killing it! It’s always something.

And every year, Ferrari slowly comes to realize that its championship hopes are dying but won’t quite admit it’ll be another depressing...

Red Bull Beats Its Own Record For Fastest Pit Stop For The Third Time This Season

Red Bull Beats Its Own Record For Fastest Pit Stop For The Third Time This Season

World records, like rules or the latches on public restroom doors, were made to be broken. Again . And again . Red Bull Racing truly lives by this motto. They’ve just beat their own record of 1.88 seconds with a 1.82-second long pit stop. That’s four tires off and four tires on in less time than it takes to blink, if you blink extremely slowly.

So do NOT blink, lest you miss it. Here’s footage...

Max Verstappen Brings Honda Its First Pole In Brazil Since Ayrton Senna

Max Verstappen, for all the excitement he brings into any given Formula One race, has only started a race on pole once in his career. Today, after being dominant in every session, he extends that list to two. And the pole is the first for a Honda-powered car at Interlagos since 1991 when Ayrton Senna qualified first for McLaren.

Verstappen was in a class of his own throughout all three...

Valtteri Bottas might not have led the entire Formula One U.S. Grand Prix from pole, but he was out front on the lap he needed to be out front on: the final one.

Valtteri Bottas Wins Pole For U.S. Grand Prix, While Lewis Hamilton Will Chase Title From Fifth

Valtteri Bottas Wins Pole For U.S. Grand Prix, While Lewis Hamilton Will Chase Title From Fifth

If Valtteri Bottas so much as finishes second at the United States Grand Prix on Sunday, his teammate Lewis Hamilton will wrap up a sixth Formula One title a full two races early. Luckily for Bottas—or he might just be apathetic about it at this point, who knows—he’ll begin that quest for the win on pole position.

Hamilton will start fifth, while Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen and Charles...

Lewis Hamilton Pulls Out A Victory In Mexico, But He Didn't Secure The Driver's Championship

With an ambitious pit strategy and a hell of a performance, Lewis Hamilton came from a third-place start to win the Mexican Grand Prix. Hamilton had an opportunity to clinch the driver’s championship multiple races early, but he didn’t quite open up a wide enough gap between himself and his teammate Valterri Bottas.

Hamilton pitted way ahead of everyone else, causing Ferrari to pin its hopes...

Racing In Formula E Isn't Part Of Lewis Hamilton's Plans To Do Better For The Environment

Lewis Hamilton, who could become a six-time Formula One champion Sunday, has been talking a lot lately about how we all can and should do better for the environment. It’s been suggested, then, that Hamilton trade his hybrid race car in for an electric one in Formula E , but that’s not in his plans.

But it isn’t anything against Formula E, or EV racing in general—Hamilton just doesn’t...
