BMW insist they have no interest in returning to Formula 1 amid the likely arrival of their German competitors Audi and Porsche from 2026. Audi have already announced their intention to join F1 as an engine manufacturer at the very least when the new generation of power units is introduced in 2026 – and it could be an even greater involvement as news of a link-up with Sauber is rumoured to be imminent. Porsche, also a part of the Volkswagen Group, are expected to follow Audi, although confirmation has been delayed due to the breakdown of talks with Red Bull over a proposed partnership. Germany has five major auto manufacturers and with Volkswagen themselves having ended their motorsport activity for the time being and Mercedes obviously being one of the biggest names in F1, that just leaves BMW. They have an F1 history dating back to the 1950s and were most recently involved as the BMW Sauber team between 2005 and 2009, winning the Canadian Grand Prix with Robert Kubica in … [Read more...] about BMW have zero interest in McLaren buy-out and joining Formula 1

Gov. Ned Lamont is often seen wearing a Grateful Dead-themed belt. It features one of the images most associated with the band, a line of multicolored dancing bears. His reelection campaign doubled-down on that with a sticker that evokes the popular group. It’s commonly called the “steal your face” logo, but in Lamont’s case, instead of a stylized red and blue skull bisected by a lightning bolt, it’s the outline of the state of Connecticut. The words “Ned Head” declare the sticker’s political leanings. In linking himself to a well known and well liked band in the minds of voters, experts say Lamont is drawing on an age-old strategy intended to make candidates feel approachable, and perhaps encourage some potential voters to cast ballots. Politics and popular music have gone hand-in-hand for a long time, according to Scott McLean, a professor of politics at Quinnipiac University. “I studied how Frank Sinatra would sing songs for John F. Kennedy's campaign,” he said. “This … [Read more...] about Ned head? How politics and music intertwine on the campaign trail
Robert Kubica admits he and his former mechanics still have regrets over BMW Sauber’s failure to truly get involved in the 2008 title fight. Under the BMW banner the team improved dramatically and following his first and only F1 win at the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix, Kubica was leading the Drivers’ Championship. But BMW would instead shift their focus to the 2009 car, causing them to fall behind Ferrari and McLaren . Kubica scored only three further podiums that season and ended up P4 in the Drivers’ Championship. 2009 proved to be an underwhelming year for the team in what would be BMW’s final season in F1. And Kubica admitted that he and his former mechanics still have regrets which haven’t subsided in the 12 years since over the team’s inability to stay in the title fight. “I have exactly the same view as I did 12 years ago, because in the end I was involved, and I was in the situation where unfortunately I was feeling that this might be our only chance to fight [for … [Read more...] about Kubica still has regrets over 2008 title battle
