Mercedes splits F1 car wing levels as Russell handed "barn door"

The wet opening practice session at Spa-Francorchamps left teams blind about choosing their best set-ups for the Belgian weekend – especially with parc ferme conditions kicking in from the start of Friday afternoon’s qualifying session. Lewis Hamilton admitted it was a complete guessing game about how best to approach things, with Mercedes in the end covering its bases and opting for a lower and higher downforce configuration across both its

F1 eyes lighter, simpler and noisier engines

With F1 committed to using fully sustainable fuels from 2026 rather than going down an all-electric route, thoughts are already being put towards what type of power unit the series could use further down the road.  And with Domenicali having been clear recently that he wants to see car weight coming down, one area where significant mass could be reduced is with the hybrid power units, which currently incorporate heavy

Brad Keselowski leads eventful Dover Cup practice

Keselowski, who ran in Group A, topped the speed chart with an average lap speed of 158.660 mph. Larson, who ran in Group B, ended up second-fastest (157.832 mph) and William Byron, from Group A, was third (157.790 mph). “I imagine everyone was pretty tight.

How Erebus struck gold with a pair of young diamonds

Barry Ryan took a huge risk at the end of 2020. In the space of 12 months the Erebus CEO had gone from having a settled, experienced, mostly-harmonious and well-performing driver duo in David Reynolds and Anton De Pasquale to having, well, a rookie and a vacant seat.

I mean, I must’ve been last by the end of it. And I was just like, ‘Everyone: Go. I just need to drive and find a rhythm.’

He follows in the footsteps of his famous grandfather who made seven NASCAR starts in the US back in 1989. Jett is no stranger to stock car-style racing himself, having spent three seasons in Trans Am in Australia before stepping up to Super3 this
