Quite a curse for tech-savvy criminals, but does it end there? Smartphone integration has become an integral part of vehicle technology . So much so that the majority of cars you can buy these days have Apple CarPlay and/or Android Auto capabilities, making the process more seamless for the users. Heck, even commercial vehicles like Mercedes and Scania trucks have Apple CarPlay as early as 2017. But smartphone integration isn’t limited to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – technologies as simple as Bluetooth and USB connection have been around for quite some time. But it seems like that painless integration and connection between your smartphone and your vehicle's head unit poses a threat in terms of privacy, The Intercept reports.

"We have such a limited track time with these cars this year, with the new rules of testing and also in practice, that everything happens very quick. "It's very hard to do any work like it used to be in practice, where we had more time. Now, it's really a couple of runs and the day is over.

Perez was running fourth in the early stages of the Portimao race but did not follow the same strategy as the three cars ahead of him when it came to the timing of his stop. While teammate Max Verstappen was pitted on lap 35 in a bid to try to jump the Mercedes duo he was fighting, Perez was kept out much longer in the lead of the race. Despite being much slower than the cars on fresh rubber, he stayed out until lap 51 – which was straight after Hamilton had overtaken him. But while it appeared that one of the main motivations for keeping Perez out would have been to potentially hinder Hamilton in his battle with Verstappen, Red Bull says its primary focus was actually on unleashing Perez to try to get fastest lap. Team boss Christian Horner explained: "It was more focused on wanting to get to the soft tyre to have a crack at that point for the fastest lap. "That's why we went that long.

The Aston Martin DB5 used in Goldfinger was believed stolen and dumped at sea – however, investigators may have finally tracked it down elsewhere… The Aston Martin DB5 driven by Sean Connery in Goldfinger , arguably the most iconic vehicle of all time, was assumed lost after criminal activity whisked the vehicle away 19 years ago. However, Aston’s pinnacle of cinematic automotive history could well be in rude health – hidden away in the Middle East, according to speculation. Frenzied talk though the grapevine accounts for a syndicate tracking down the DB5 'effects car', one of two 1964 models employed for filming the legendary 1960s spy flick, a cinematic adventure that set the tone for all future Bond movies.
