This is a Ferrari F2003GA, with a 3.0-liter V10 that can howl to 19,000 RPM and, as far as this new 1:01.2 lap record of Road Atlanta suggests, bend the fabric of spacetime.
It looks like Formula One’s new halo is a big step forward for safety in the sport. Also, it looks hideous. But at least McLaren is embracing that their once-lovely F1 cars have giant protective flip flops on them, by partnering with a flip flop company for charity.
Since the 1980s, Ferrari has had veto power in Formula One—if it doesn’t like a rule the series or its governing body, the FIA, wants to implement, the team can step in and stop things. FIA president Jean Todt thinks Ferrari should lose that ability, which brings up the question of why the team has it in the first…
Few people reach such a status that others would pay tons of money for clothing they wore in hours-long, sweaty athletic events, and, when phrased like that, it sounds weird regardless of whose clothing it is. But Formula One legend Ayrton Senna reached that status, and one of his race suits is up for auction soon.
While driving on an island in Western Australia, WAtoday reports that Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo’s parents and their friends claim they found a 132-year-old message in a bottle they originally thought was litter. But not everyone believes them, and some think it’s just an elaborate marketing plan.
The finale of the Formula One season last year was a hard one for me. It was the end of a long, one-sided relationship I’d held with the McLaren-Honda F1 team partnership, in which the Honda engine miserably failed and I made constant, possibly annoying jokes about it. I really enjoyed the bond we had there.
When a person like former Lotus Formula One development driver Carmen Jorda talks about how women are less capable as racing drivers than men—and she does, a lot—there’s an urge to treat it as an offhand comment with no merit. That’s particularly true when the person has a history of not helping the people they’re…
When Formula One mandated the halo cockpit-protection bar for 2018, a lot of people saw it as a rushed, unappealing and ugly solution to a safety issue drivers have been asking the series to solve for years. But after all of the apprehension and complaining, it sounds like the halo isn’t too terrible from the cockpit.
Formula One’s winter test day at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was snowed out this morning with no cars on course until the afternoon. For once, we’re not super jealous of the F1 drivers. Open cockpits are awfully drafty. Clearly, the driver sent to do reconnaissance laps had the better job today.
For years, all Formula One fans have wanted is a live stream of the races, and we’re finally getting it in the United States in 2018. It’s called F1 TV, and it’s how we’ll finally get to stream F1 legally without commercials. Support series will be on the platform as well, and monthly pricing for the live stream is…
For the past five years, Williams has had one of the only good looking Formula One cars on the grid. Their main sponsor has been Martini, who dressed up the car in their classic, aesthetically pleasing stripes. Sadly, Martini will step away from F1 entirely after the 2018 season is done, so no one can have the…
Formula One testing is underway, and that means we get to listen to the buzz of 1.6 liter V6s turbocharged unto infinity once more. But there’s one thing I want to compare them all to.
Here’s the Red Bull Formula One paint scheme for 2018, which looks a lot like the Red Bull F1 paint scheme for the past few years but with a big ol’ halo on top of it. It unfortunately won’t run that cool blue camo scheme we saw last week all year, but at least it won’t get a Honda engine like its development team.
Formula 1's new Halo for driver protection still looks about as dumb as conceivably possible from the outside, but finally there’s POV video to show what it’s like from the driver’s perspective. Watch and judge for yourself, but this doesn’t look too bad.
Stare deep into the red abyss that is the new 2018 Ferrari SF71H Formula One car. Fall deep into every shiny red curve of its shape. Lose your mind in the madness that is its incredibly rosso corsa wings. Ferrari’s new car is extremely red, as if they’re out for blood after a 10-year championship-free streak in F1.
The current hybrid V6 era in Formula One has been defined by one thing above all: getting real damn tired of seeing the Mercedes car up front, week after week. Last season was better, but Mercedes unveiled their 2018 W09 EQ Power+ F1 car and I’m already bored of it.
We don’t have much to say about the 2018 Renault F1 car, except that it looks cool. It looks cool! Good combo, black and yellow.
For the first time in decades, Alfa Romeo’s famous Quadrifoglio lucky cloverleaf badge will grace the side of an Alfa Romeo-badged Formula One car. This time, it’s aboard the new Sauber C37, which was unveiled today with a big ol’ Alfa Romeo graphic on the side. Alfa’s finally back in F1.
