Max Verstappen is certainly a name to watch... he will become the youngest driver in Formula One history... the achievement of Verstappen and others becomes a triumph of relativity, a story of ability overcoming experience, of talent trumping practice, of nature defeating nurture.
Today the Renault Sport engine is still highly advanced, with a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 featuring a pair of powerful energy recuperation systems that feed twin electric motors... The aim is to deliver the same power as the 2013 V8 engine delivered using a V6 turbo and twin electric motors (which also uses 40 percent less fuel).
Launched today at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, last years' concept car got the 'What if?' treatment and a limited edition of just 250 cars will be brought into production in the early Spring ready for sale in the Summer of 2015.
With the Formula One season in full flow, you could be forgiven for thinking that my life at the moment is focused on non-stop training, qualifying and racing. It's often difficult to find time for anything else, but earlier this month I was able to visit Haiti with Unicef, the world's leading children's organisation, to make an appeal film for this year's Soccer Aid, which returns for the fifth time on Sunday 8 June.... No child, no matter where they live in the world should go hungry or lose their life because they or their family don't have enough to eat. That's why I'm asking everyone to tune in on June 8 and give what they can.
Mirrors and compartments are something I searched for. Do men really not look at themselves, or keep items close at hand, the cabin was quite bare and I remembered I was in a utility vehicle. Is a mirror a woman thing?
The overarching theme of this blog is to show that better use of the skills and creativity of the UK advertising and communications sector would benefit society as a whole as well as business... But even I admit that, with all the creativity in the world, none of us could stop the floods which have dominated our media landscape.
Not only have we - come on, admit it - enjoyed The Great F1 Shake-Up after Red Bull's disastrous test at Jerez, but events elsewhere have got petrol heads champing at the bit for the season to really get going - and it's still only February. If all falls into place, we could potentially be in for one of those classic years.
When McLaren announced the signing of Eric Boullier as the new Racing Director, some astute Formula 1 fans asked, "what the heck is a Racing Director? Is that a new Ron Dennis phrase for team principal?"
It seems that Brawn is relishing the chance to take advantage of some leisure time after several decades of toil, tumult and success in Formula 1. Having won two titles while at Benetton, Brawn followed 7-time world champion Michael Schumacher to Ferrari secure another five titles with the Italian carmaker.
The 2014 notion of double points seems to be another construct intended to tie one hand behind Red Bull's back. Should the season be close, double points could be a non-issue but should Red Bull have a decent lead, the final race could marginalize everything they'd accomplished in the season.
It's a strange world. According to Michael Schumacher's press chief and manager, Sabine Kehm, a journalist disguised as a priest attempted to enter Schumacher's room. The culprit, nor the media outlet associated, have been named.
If you've been watching Formula 1 for a few years then you'll know that Richard Branson, boss of Virgin and one of the UK's richest men, has been around the series but only dipped his toe in the lukewarm waters of the world's most advanced for of motorsport...
Rumors have suggested Williams F1, Ferrari and Red Bull as possible landing pads for Brawn but in the end, it depends on the circumstances as brawn doesn't like to play second fiddle to anyone- a main reason for leaving Mercedes.
After eight seasons, the FIA Formula One World Championship will say goodbye to the 2.4 litre V8 engine formula at the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend. It's not only the end of the 2013 season but the end of the V8 engine era.
Time is of the essence in a sport that is measured in the one thousandth of a second and to change all four wheels in under two seconds is a terrific feat by anyone's measure. Teams practice pitstops regularly and in Austin you could catch some of those practice sessions during the pit walk on Thursday.
So it seems that if Lopez signs the deal, Quantum will own 35% of the team with options for a complete buyout in the future. It also could signify that Nico Hulkenberg may have a reason to get excited about 2014 as the German has been linked to the team should the Quantum deal go through.
