Listen to this article A combination of lower costs, particularly when compared to the LMP1 era of the FIA World Endurance Championship, and the chance to race the same car in two major series have proven key factors in luring manufacturers back to the top class of the WEC (simply known now as 'Hypercar') and the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (where the equivalent class is called 'GTP'). Before we proceed to the list of marques, it's worth reiterating the differences between LMDh and LMH regulations. LMDh is essentially a successor to the successful DPi platform IMSA introduced in 2017. As was the case previously, manufacturers must base their new designs upon a next-generation LMP2 chassis, of which there are four licensed constructors: Oreca, Dallara, Ligier and Multimatic. Engine choice remains free within the scope of regulations, but all cars must now be fitted with a spec hybrid system built jointly by Bosch (inverter), Williams Advanced Engineering … [Read more...] about Who will race in WEC and IMSA with LMDh/LMH cars in 2023?

Listen to this article Red Bull Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing RB18 Photo by: Alessio Morgese Even before Red Bull streaked well clear of Ferrari in the 2022 constructors’ championship, it had both drivers signed up for next season. Stability is the name of the game as an uber-long deal to retain Max Verstappen means he will again lead the outfit over compliant team-mate Sergio Perez . Confirmed 2023 drivers Driver 1 : Max Verstappen – Red Bull has the reigning world champion under lock and key, with Verstappen contractually committed to the team until 2028 after signing a five-year extension earlier this season.

But he will need to address his late-campaign slump in form. … [Read more...] about 2023 Formula 1 driver market: Which drivers are going where?
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 23 SARAJEVO, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) — Bosnia’s general election should be about the fight against rampant corruption and helping the country’s ailing economy. But at a time when Russia has a strong incentive to reignite conflict in the small Balkan nation, Sunday’s vote appears set to be an easy test for the long-entrenched nationalists who have ignored the needs of the people. Voters are choosing the three members of the shared, Bosnian presidency, parliament deputies at the state, entity and regional levels, and the president of the country’s Serb-run part. The long-serving Bosnian Serb political leader Milorad Dodik, who is running for that last office, has used the election campaign to champion a secessionist agenda and Russia’s war in Ukraine. “(Bosnian Serbs) … [Read more...] about Bosnia election expected to re-legitimize a failing system
The FIA is facing its stiffest test yet in the budget cap era with Ferrari and Mercedes said to be baying for blood with rumours Red Bull “significantly” exceeded the budget cap last season. Last season Formula 1 introduced a budget cap of $145 million with the teams warned of consequences should they exceed it. What exactly those consequences would be wasn’t set out in stone as first it would need to be ruled a “minor overspend” or a “material overspend”, and then various penalties come into play from a monetary fine to loss of Constructors’ Championship points. Next week the FIA will release the results of the first cost cap review into 2021’s accounts, but, as to be expected, there are already rumours about what will appear – and it doesn’t make good reading for Red Bull. According to Auto Motor und Sport , “two teams are said to be over the limit, one of them significantly. The rumour is circulating in the paddock that it is Red Bull.” The Milton Keynes squad … [Read more...] about ‘Red Bull significantly exceeded the cap in 2021, rivals demand severe penalties’
