Friday’s first two U.S. Grand Prix practice sessions got practically drowned, leaving many teams hiding in their garages for most of the time available. On Saturday, the onslaught of rain bombarding Central Texas over the past month or so finally decided to give us all a break, and allowed Circuit of The Americas to…
Formula One may be making its one stop of the year in America this weekend, but there’s another red, white and blue flag that’s important to this particular U.S. Grand Prix: the one British F1 star Lewis Hamilton could wave to celebrate his fifth series title on Sunday. He’ll start first in pursuit of that title.
Well, would you look at that. We’ve all miraculously survived an entire year since the last U.S. Grand Prix, and to celebrate, Texas is giving us cold and rainy weather for the week of. How kind. Anyway, time flies, which is why you should make the most of it by joining Jalopnik for our annual Formula One party in…
At the U.S. Grand Prix on Sunday, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen climbed from 17th all the way into third after a grid penalty. But the podium Verstappen took away on the last lap didn’t last long, since Formula One race stewards decided his pass on Kimi Raikkonen wasn’t fair. Here’s that pass, from every angle.
Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton dominantly won the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas on Sunday, but Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel clawed his way back up to second in the finishing order to keep Hamilton from clinching the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship.
McLaren finally tossed its partnership with Honda aside, meaning the team will have a new, different, hopefully slightly better Renault power unit for the 2018 race season. But the McLaren team still has to ride out (however much it can of) the 2017 season with a Honda power unit, which totally blows.
It’s race day in America. America! Are you ready?
Toro Rosso has swapped its drivers around so much at this point in the 2017 Formula One season that Brendon Hartley is being penalized for an engine swap on Daniil Kvyat’s old car. But Daniil Kvyat isn’t considered to be driving his old car, even though his number is running this weekend on Toro Rosso’s other car.
Six Formula One drivers ran faster qualifying laps than the new F1 lap record set by Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton earlier today at Circuit of the Americas, but it was Lewis Hamilton again who claimed pole position. Hamilton’s new lap record is an astonishingly fast 1:33.108, obliterating last year’s record of…
Gusty winds couldn’t keep Mercedes Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton from breaking his own track record, which he set just yesterday. Hamilton’s 1:34.478 lap is the new F1 track record around Circuit of the Americas, proving once again that Hamilton’s still the F1 Lap King of COTA.
Toro Rosso stand-in driver Brendon Hartley can’t seem to catch a break in his first Formula One drive in five years. First, changes to the car’s power unit triggered enough grid penalties to move him to the rear of the field at the start of the race, NBC Sports reports. Worse yet, his helmet wouldn’t stay put during…
Ferrari Formula One driver and four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel hasn’t driven for his former team Red Bull since 2014, yet he tried to get his Ferrari serviced in Red Bull’s pit stall during Free Practice 3 of the United States Grand Prix. Oops!
Hello, Formula One-niverse. Were you hoping to sign away Red Bull’s young flying Dutchman, Max Verstappen? Sorry—wait, just kidding, not sorry at all—Red Bull just made their wish for Verstappen to stay official with a contract extension through 2020, the team announced today.
The sun peeked out this afternoon just long enough to let the 2017 Formula One cars show their true speed on a dry track during Free Practice 2. Early in the session, Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton smashed the F1 track lap record with a ridiculously quick 1:34.668 lap time.
Free Practice 2 isn’t going so well so far for Haas Formula One driver Kevin Magnussen. First, he spun off track backwards right at “Haas Hill,” and then he had a close call with his teammate Romain Grosjean.
Congratulations! You and your merry band of miscreants have made the great pilgrimage to Austin for one of the greatest race weekends on the planet: the Formula One United States Grand Prix. But what’s the best way to enjoy it, and what do you do after the track goes cold? We’re here to help.
Formula One is back in Austin, Texas, and so are a lot of you. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year here: the oppressive heat is gone and F1 fans from around the world return like the swallows of Car-pistrano. So, we’re meeting up yet again to enjoy drinks and snacks this Friday, and you should come!
McLaren confirmed today that Fernando Alonso will be staying with the Formula One team for next year alongside Stoffel Vandoorne, F1 announced. Thankfully, since McLaren will run Renault power units next year, they might actually have a competitive car.
Three-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton told the press that he doesn’t have any plans to kneel during the anthem in protest of the oppression of black Americans, as many football players are doing this year. He also refuses to let the controversy surrounding the topic keep him from winning a fourth world…
