Tyre failures or punctures have been part of the scene since the dawn of motor racing. Sadly, over the decades many drivers have lost their lives as a result of tyre issues, or presumed tyre issues. It used to be that suspension or wing breakages were just as much of a concern, but they are rare at F1 level in the modern era, such is the technical competence of the teams. When they get into their cockpits drivers have total faith that the car has been put together properly. Tyres are the one part of the car over which teams do not have complete control; complete because Pirelli has made it clear that the current controversy involves how teams operate their tyres, and thus they do have an input into how they behave. The technical directive issued by the FIA this week was designed to close any loopholes and ensure that tyres are always operated to the parameters that are prescribed by Pirelli. That initiative has been welcomed by the drivers, who can only see safety … [Read more...] about Have F1 drivers lost faith in Pirelli after Baku failures?
Daimler will be embracing electrification at a higher pace. Literally a few hours after a new report emerged claiming Audi will speed up the process of integrating electric powertrains and will phase out combustion-powered cars earlier than initially expected, similar information is coming from Daimler. The company that owns Mercedes-Benz will reportedly follow a similar approach in an updated version of its electrification strategy. Citing Germany’s Manager Magazin , Automotive News reports Mercedes will launch its electric vehicles originally slated for the middle of the decade earlier than planned. The models that were supposed to be unveiled in 2024 or 2025 will make their debuts a year earlier, while their combustion-powered equivalents will be dropped from the model range altogether. Nothing seems to be official at this point, though, as the publication cites “sources close to the matter.” The Future Is Electric At Mercedes: ⠀ 2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS … [Read more...] about Mercedes To Switch More Combustion Cars To EVs Sooner Than Planned
The flexi-wing drama that's been bubbling away over the last few races should see a line drawn underneath it at Paul Ricard, as the FIA introduces new tests to prevent teams from circumventing the load and deflection tests that were already in place. Teams have had around a month to prepare themselves for the new test conditions, which require the designers to comply with new values and mean that they have a rotation component to deal with rather than just a deflection. The new guidelines suggest that bodywork may rotate no more than one-degree about an axis normal to the centreplane when two 750N loads are applied rearward. Furthermore, bodywork may not rotate more than one-degree about an axis normal to the centre plane when two 1000N loads are applied in a downward direction.

Tickford Racing driver James Courtney is set to take on Australian Superbike champion Wayne Maxwell in a single-lap demonstration 'race' around the Darwin circuit. The aim of the crossover is to promote the packed schedule during the Darwin Triple Crown weekend, with Supercars sharing the bill with both Superbikes and the Nitro Up North drag racing event tonight. There is also a link between Courtney and Maxwell through backer Boost Mobile. Supercars and Superbikes are closely matched in terms of lap speed at Hidden Valley, with Scott McLaughlin's Supercars practice lap record of 1m05.473s comparing to Troy Bayliss' ASBK pole-winning 1m05.601s in 2018. The Courtney/Maxwell match race is the second promotional event including Supercars, with four drivers and their cars set to take part in a drag race during the Nitro Up North event . Brodie Kostecki will drive the Erebus Motorsport ride car, while Todd Hazelwood (Brad Jones Racing), Zane Goddard (Matt Stone Racing) … [Read more...] about Supercar, Superbike to race each other in Darwin
