Ed Carpenter has caused a major upset by winning pole position for this year’s Indianapolis 500.
The field’s only owner/driver qualified fifth-quickest ahead of the ‘Fast 9’ shootout for pole, before putting together a four-lap average speed effort of 228.762mph to claim top spot and a cool $100,000 prize.
The big TEXAS weekend is finally here!
The V8 Supercar series heads over the Pacific Ocean to the sixth overseas location in the category’s history for the Austin 400 at the Circuit of the Americas. The aim of the game? To show our Stateside cousins what the world of V8 Supercars is all about. Panel contact included.
Built to host the Formula 1 and the Moto GP, the Circuit of the Americas is a brand new track full of more twist and turns than an episode of Midsummer Murders. Let’s take a look at what lies ahead this weekend…(and Monday, due to the time difference!).
The Spanish Grand Prix certainly delivered plenty of discussion about the state of the sport and the influence of Pirelli tyres, but we saw the usual suspects score a hatful of points at the Circuit de Catalunya.
Perhaps many of our entrants were expecting a few more surprise performances in the field, as for most – with the exception of a few – it was a rather low-scoring round in the 2013 RichardsF1.com Predictions Competition…
The FIA World Touring Car Championship fires back into life this weekend with the fifth round of the championship season at Austria’s Salzburgring circuit.
A high-speed circuit modelled in the style of the tracks of yesteryear, this is one of our favourite events on the WTCC calendar. With last year’s two races providing fans with some seriously tyre-breaking races, we’re all set for what will hopefully be another pair of action-packed sprints to the chequered flag!
Lotus F1 team boss Eric Boullier has reacted angrily to Pirelli’s announcement that it would alter the construction of its 2013 tyres for the remainder of the Formula 1 season, following complaints regarding the high-wearing tyres from several rival teams.
The Special Tune Racing outfit will be missing in action for the next two rounds of the FIA World Touring Car Championship in Austria and Russia.
The one-car SEAT squad has been plagued by mechanical issues since Tom Boardman’s huge accident at Marrakech two months’ ago, and have opted to return to their headquarters to iron out the issues once and for all.
McLaren has finally announced what many of us knew for some time: it will reunite with Honda from the 2015 Formula 1 season onwards on a multi-year partnership.
It will be the second time that the two have joined forces, with the McLaren-Honda combination that operated between 1988-92 helping the team with three Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championship titles apiece.
