Cold winter months usually conjure up thoughts of snow, log fires crackling and putting up your feet... Not in Formula One, where teams are hard at work developing the cars to shave hundredths of a second from their lap time in order to battle for next year's title.
Every year there are F1 cars that don't score any points and always qualify at the back of the grid. It's a fact of life. For the past few years those cars have been run by HRT, Marussia, and Caterham.
We love rallycross cars. To handle all the jumps and danger of dirt/tarmac racing, they have amazingly competent suspension, four wheel drive, and transmissions. What if your car had none of those things?
There was no good reason for Renault to revive its classic sports/racing car division, Alpine. Renault did it anyway, and now they've partnered 50/50 with Caterham to design the car. You're excused if this all sounds like a dream come true.
