Fittipaldi – the son of the two-time Formula 1 world champion and Indy 500 winner of the same name – turned 14-years old this month. That makes him eligible for the Danish series, which allows you to race at 14 as long as you become 15 within a year of the season starting. He has been racing in European karting so far this year, as a part of the Alfa Romeo F1 team’s talent program, Sauber Academy. “I look forward to getting my formula car debut and getting to know the Danish racetracks,” said Fittipaldi Jr, who tested an F4 car at Homestead-Miami Speedway last year. “Even though I do not much about Denmark, the series and tracks, I believe that this is a great opportunity to learn a lot from the Scandinavian drivers, and I look very much forward to that.” Read Also: Emerson Fittipaldi Jr makes F4 test debut at Homestead Emmo Fittipaldi Jr. lands major sponsor deal, aged 12 The Fittipaldi family has relocated to Italy from Miami, USA, this year as ‘Little … [Read more...] about Emmo Fittipaldi Jr to make car racing debut in Danish F4

It also confirmed the Ioniq 5 will have SK Innovation batteries. We were waiting for Hyundai to talk about the LG Energy Solution (LGES) statement on Kona Electric fires for a while, but now InsideEVs has an official explanation for them. According to Hyundai, it was indeed a folded anode tab in the batteries that caused the fires. Remember that these folded anode tabs could also be on the Chevrolet Bolt EV , which uses LG Energy Solution cells and also experienced fires recently . Hyundai told InsideEVs that the investigation led by MOLIT (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport) in South Korea pointed that the folded anode tab “could allow the lithium plating on the anode tab to contact the cathode, resulting in an electrical short.” It’s this electrical short that would cause the fires. All the defective cells came from LGES’s plant in Nanjing. LG Energy Solution denied that this was the fire's cause and said the tests could not replicate … [Read more...] about Hyundai Officially Confirms Folded Anode Tab Caused Kona EV Fires
There are all manner of variables unknown to anyone but the teams themselves, and that can throw a real spanner in the works of even the most educated of guesses. Nonetheless, speculation on who sits where in the pecking order is always fascinating, and none more so this year that what is really up with Mercedes and its W12. As seven-time champion, it was always going to be the team thrust into the spotlight during the pre-season test, as it has the furthest to fall if anything goes wrong. It is also the team that has the most to lose by any rule change, of which it has had a few thrown at it in recent years.
