Lewis Hamilton says he needs to “get back on it” in Formula 1 qualifying ahead of this weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix after crashing in Q3 during the European race last time out. Prior to the event in Baku, Hamilton had cut Nico Rosberg’s championship lead from 43 points to nine, in just three races. But Hamilton’s low-key race in Azerbaijan, which was compounded by an engine setting problem, turned out to be doubly disappointing for the world cha...

The FIA Sport Conference 2016 closed in Turin today with a chilling reminder that motorsport faces many threats, but arguably the biggest comes from the rise of autonomous road vehicles, which could turn it into a niche sport at best. Picking up on a theme raised by four times F1 world champion Alain Prost on Wednesday, WEC and Formula E star Lucas di Grassi said that as people become less used to having a steering wheel in their hands, the desir...

Alain Prost “really bored” by Baku and calls on F1 to shake up its TV coverage
Four times world champion Alain Prost has called on Formula 1 to improve its TV coverage in a bid to attract a younger generation of viewers to the sport. Prost, who won three world titles for McLaren in 1985, 1986 and 1989, and one for Williams in 1993, described watching last weekend’s European Grand Prix in Baku via on-board cameras and said he was disappointed with how easy it made driving an F1 car appear to be. The Frenchman explained that ...

Or at least challenging - they look like economy runs with a Prius now. Fill them with gas and whatever tires they want and let them go at it.

This weekend sees F1 return to a more conventional circuit after the 'outlier' of the new street track in Baku. The Red Bull Ring, as it is now known, is a simple 9 turn high speed circuit with some long straights, open corners and technical challenges. So who will come out on top and what does a winning strategy look like for the other teams? On paper this race should favour Mercedes and not do any favours to Red Bull, which has struggled on its...

Ron Dennis: McLaren focused on long-term sponsor commitments over shorter F1 title deals
Ron Dennis says the changing nature of Formula 1’s sponsorship models means his McLaren team has prioritised signing smaller deals for longer, rather than sell prominent space on its cars to a single company for a shorter period of time. Dennis was speaking at the launch event of McLaren’s new partnership with fashion brand Michael Kors, which will become the team’s “lifestyle partner” and have its logos visible on the MP4-31 and the overalls of ...
