If you don’t know 18-year-old Koyama Miki (小山美姫), you’re far from alone, but it’s definitely ignorance you should correct. She’s in the Japanese Formula Four Championships and, like a lot of young racers, she’s gunning for a slot in F1. She’s good enough that Honda just let her thrash an S660 in a brand new commercial.
Four tires in 1.92 seconds is ludicrous even by Formula 1's madcap standards of speed.
Just because you schedule a regular-season Formula One race over the end of Le Mans doesn’t mean that F1 drivers aren’t going to ask about the result. Fortunately, Ferrari driver and four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel thought to ask what happened to the Toyota Le Mans team in the middle of F1’s post-race press…
In an incident Williams head of performance engineering Rob Smedley called “a shitty set of circumstances,” Valtteri Bottas’ Williams F1 car kicked up a drain cover at the new Baku track. The cover damaged Bottas’ car during the final practice session for the race and sent debris flying towards nearby marshals.
The Formula One race in Baku, Azerbaijan, is officially being billed as the “European Grand Prix.” Baku, Azerbaijan, is not in Europe.
If there’s one name that’s all over open-wheel racing lately, it’s Alexander Rossi. Not only was he the first American to race in Formula One in years, but this year, he won America’s most famous race: the Indianapolis 500. So, of course, Rossi’s here with us live now to answer all your questions.
This story is one of the strangest and most debatable in Ferrari’s history. It’s not clear if Ferrari was once about to dump Formula One in favor of America’s greatest race, or if the company was so petty that they built an entire car for a bluff.
Formula 1 is a strange sport, strange enough that the number of engines in the cars themselves could be a matter of debate.
This week on Top Gear, Chris Harris called the V12 engine the heart and soul of Ferrari. Listen to this engine and you will not disagree.
The unfiltered sound. The re-contextualized speed. The seagulls.
Just as Lewis Hamilton crossed the finish in P1 of the Canadian Grand Prix (after what some may consider a controversial start), his teammate Nico Rosberg spun off the track desperately grasping for fourth. Luckily for Rosberg, he still managed to finish—the best consolation prize after what was a horrible race.
Representatives from Sport for Rights held closed-door meetings with the FIA this week over Azerbaijan’s numerous human rights issues ahead of its new Formula One European Grand Prix, reports Motor Sport. Additionally, the group is encouraging celebrity guests to withdraw from the race.
McLaren just fixed the clown-faced 570S with its vintage 1966 Formula 1 racing livery.
Current Formula One cars supposedly produce around 900 horsepower with 1.6-liter turbo V6s assisted by hybrid drive. Back in 1983 Renault made similar power with a turbocharged 1.5 liter V6 alone.
Daniel Ricciardo was doing so well at the Monaco Grand Prix. He claimed Red Bull’s first pole position since 2013, and his first at Monaco. He managed to keep his lead for much of the Monaco Grand Prix itself, where the narrow street circuit makes passes extremely hard. Then he got hosed by his own pit crew.
One of the last drivers expected to win the Indianapolis 500 drank the milk after his team made a smart call on strategy. While racing fans know Alexander Rossi from Formula One, he didn’t make huge waves running with backmarker teams. Now that he’s won the Indy 500, that could change. Here’s why we should all stand…
Good morning! It’s Memorial Day, a holiday for everyone else at Jalopnik so I’m running the show. This past weekend was full of exciting endurance racing, disappointing (if unsurprising) Formula 1 results, and a 100th Indy 500 that truly deserved a special note in the history books. So, here’s your Memorial Day…
As surprising as it is, Lewis Hamilton’s Monaco Grand Prix win on Sunday was his first in Formula One since clinching the 2015 title at Circuit of The Americas in October. But that wasn’t the main story to come out of the race—rather, it was Red Bull Racing’s royal pit-stop screw up with pole sitter Daniel Ricciardo.
