The Aston Martin driver was hit with a 10-second penalty after his team failed to fit the wheels on his car before the five-minute signal ahead of the start of the race. However, the penalty was only announced after lap 22 of the race, and the delay compromised Vettel's chances at the time. Although Vettel went on to retire from the Imola race on the penultimate lap, the four-time champion was still frustrated by the FIA's speed in announcing the penalty. "Obviously the guys tried everything on the grid and I think they did really well, they were really alert," said Vettel of his pre-race problems. "I think we could have had a better race if the FIA was more alert because I think we broke a rule, I guess, that is why we got a penalty, but they didn't bother until way into the race, so by that time the penalty cost us a lot more than it would have done earlier in the race. "That is not very professional." Read Also: Emilia Romagna Grand Prix Driver Ratings … [Read more...] about Vettel: FIA “not very professional” in dealing with Imola penalty

The French driver completed his first full campaign in the sport last year, racing for Honda-powered Toro Rosso, before he was promoted to Red Bull Racing for 2019 after Daniel Ricciardo decided to leave for Renault. Although Red Bull is convinced Gasly will be able to perform, team boss Christian Horner admitted the promotion came "faster than we would have liked". Gasly reckons racing alongside Verstappen, rated as one of the best drivers on the grid, will help him raise him game this season. "I think Max at the moment, based on the performance he showed last year - it's difficult, you know, to compare with Lewis [Hamilton] or Seb [Vettel] - but he's clearly one of the best and most talented guys in the paddock at the moment," Gasly told Motorsport.com. "So for me it's perfect to have a reference like him. "I'm sure it's going to be useful for myself to keep learning in Formula 1 and achieve a better performance for myself and I always find it good to have a fast … [Read more...] about Gasly says Verstappen the “perfect reference” for him

The engine was detuned to 900 horsepower for this phase of testing. Progress is being made on what could be the third production car to break the 300-mph barrier. Hennessey Performance is exploring the aerodynamic properties of its Venom F5 hypercar in real-world situations and recently completed the first of three evaluation phases, achieving 200 mph in the process. The testing began in February at Hennessey's facility in Texas before moving to a former U.S. Air Force facility in Arkansas. Utilizing a 2.2-mile runway, Hennessey Performance Chief Engineer John Heinricy was able to reach the milestone without any reported issues from the long-awaited F5. For this stage of testing, the twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V8 engine was dialed back to just 900 horsepower (671 kilowatts) – approximately half of the 1,817 hp (1,355 kW) for which the bonkers mill is rated.

The Level 2 autonomous systems from Ford, GM, and Tesla aren't created equal. The global automotive scene is in the midst of a paradigm shift. Electric motors are replacing internal combustion power, and advanced technology is literally taking control of automobiles. We are witnessing the birth of autonomous mainstream transportation, but it's not quite ready for prime time both in terms of development and regulation. However, some systems with limited self-drive capability are available for consumers to buy right now. Ford is the latest automaker to step into this realm with its BlueCruise system , promising self-drive features similar to its crosstown rival, General Motors . Meanwhile, both Detroit brands are competing with Tesla , the company that wowed the world with its Autopilot system back in 2014. Everyone else has been playing catch-up since then, which begs the obvious question. Have Ford and GM caught up? The Race To Full Autonomy: ⠀ Honda … [Read more...] about Autopilot Vs Super Cruise Vs BlueCruise: How Do They Compare?
