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.

Jaguar Land Rover intends to put fully electric cars on the market in the long run, and there’s no better way to develop their technology than to go back to racing with their old pals at Williams. We can only approve.
Susie Wolff will retire at the end of the season. By the manner in which this news has been greeted, one would imagine the announcement had been made by one of the all-time greats. There has been an outpouring of emotion, of platitudes and sadness.
Williams Formula One driver Valtteri Bottas cut across into a turn in Russia and was knocked out of position by Ferrari’s Kimi Räikkönen. While Kimi received a 30 second penalty for that, the incident cost Bottas a solid top ten finish in Russia. Now it’s Bottas’ turn to take the inside line and knock Räikkönen out of…
I stepped into Sir Frank Williams’ complex expecting to see Felipe Massa’s Formula One car in bits and pieces, but my visit revealed that their engineering department would make Tony Stark run for his money.

If you ask Jaguar, they say the C-X75 is still a no go. If you ask the people who actually designed and built the car, they say if anybody, Agent 007 just might be able to push it into production. Take your bets!
Take your bets now! I only drove her from the airport to the airport hotel’s parking lot here in Birmingham so far, but the next time I jump in it, I’ll have to take her to Edinburgh. Everything is on the wrong side, I can’t see out of it, 380 horsepower. Yep.

Close passes are one thing. Threading your wheel in between the two wheels of another Formula One race car next to you resides on a whole different plane of ridiculousness. Here’s the most beastly overtake of this year’s Canadian Grand Prix, courtesy of Felipe Massa as he goes around Marcus Ericsson.
Tissue damage has sidelined Williams Formula One driver Valtteri Bottas for the Australian Grand Prix. The FIA just announced that Bottas has been declared unfit to race today.
Thumb nose? Naw, brah. It's a tongue nose, according to Formula One's Most Amusing Social Media Team. The Lotus F1 Team recently took photos of the leaked Williams to task for being perhaps the most protrudey of the 2015 probosces and won the Internet by comparing it to cute baby animals.
Good news, everyone who’s been waiting on pins and needles to see a woman race in Formula One: Susie Wolff has been promoted to be Williams Martini Racing’s full-time test driver for 2015. That’s one step closer to race time, m’dears.
Yep, they have a Jaguar C-X75 at the front desk. You know, the supercar we all wanted to happen. And there's more.
Nicolas Perrin is a busy man. When he's not designing his LMP1-H car for the World Endurance Championship, he's explaining why he is doing it. He does it for your enjoyment anyway. Tech geeks, unite, it's a long one!
