American F1 Fans Won’t Have To Illegally Stream British F1 Broadcasts Next Year

If you’re not a person who mutes sports commentary because you could totally do better, you’ll either be pleased or rather annoyed that America will get a U.K.-based Formula One broadcast next year. Perhaps the British will use this platform to tell thousands of Americans how bad we are at roundabouts. Read more… Continue Reading […]

Here’s What The Ferrari And Mercedes F1 Cars Will Sound Like This Year 

It isn’t 2021 and therefore Formula One’s rules for louder and cheaper engines aren’t in effect yet (because F1 is silly and announces new rules four years in advance), but the engines are still decently loud up close. Here’s what the series-dominating Ferrari and Mercedes F1 engines will sound like this year.Read more… Continue Reading […]

Formula E Gets Grid Girls Spectacularly Wrong

Formula E: Home of the suspiciously slow electric race cars, and, apparently, suspiciously high levels of hypocrisy. After welcoming Formula One “to the 21st century” for removing grid girls, something Formula E claimed to have already done, the series’ CEO basically just said, “Nah, just kidding, we’re keeping them.”Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Adorable Grid Kids Will Replace Grid Girls At F1 Races

Less than a week after confirming that it would no longer use grid girls at races, Formula One announced they’ll be replaced by grid kids starting with the 2018 season. The grid kids will be actual children—and the children are our FUTURE—not adult women whose very being is lessened by others repeatedly referring to…Read more… […]

Madman Fernando Alonso Will Race The F1 And WEC Seasons At The Same Time

After apparently enjoying racing about 22 more hours than he’s used to at the Rolex 24, Formula One’s Fernando Alonso decided he’ll compete in all of the FIA World Endurance Championship races that don’t conflict with his F1 obligations this season. He, presumably, hates sleep.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

F1 Could Push Back Start Times So All Of Us Lazy People Have No Excuse For Sleeping Through It

Formula One’s American broadcast will be on ESPN next year, which people are understandably apprehensive about. But in some good news, F1 may push back start times, allowing we of the Red, White and Blue to sleep in past 6:30 a.m. on the weekends. On a lazy Sunday morning, that’s a decent consolation prize.Read more… […]

Of Course F1 Is Backpedaling On Getting Rid Of Grid Girls 

Formula One’s use of grid girls is still “under review,” but instead of deciding whether to axe the concept altogether, F1 will try to make grid girls “more relevant” to competition. This weak and complacent move was, of course, going to happen the whole time. It was silly of us to think otherwise.Read more… Continue […]

Ferrari’s Now Threatening To Quit F1 And Start A Rival Racing Series 

In the most doubt-inducing way possible, Ferrari wants everyone to know that it is really, really serious about its threat to quit Formula One. Ferrari doesn’t like what F1’s new owners are doing, and now the company’s temper tantrum is getting so big that it tossed up the idea of creating its own rival racing […]

Bernie Ecclestone Still Hates Democracy 

Former Formula One dictator-in-chief Bernie Ecclestone hates a lot of things. He hates the entire continent of North America, a known shit hole. He hates the idea of gender equality. He hates social media. He also hates when widespread corruption is out of the picture, because corruption accomplishes things.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

News: Racing Driver Needs To Be Mildly Aroused Before Driving A Race Car

Jalopnik must apologize for our grave error last week, in asserting grid girls are not necessary—and even, possibly, harmful!—to racing. We were so very wrong because, as we recently learned from mediocre Formula One driver Nico Hulkenberg, male drivers need to see beautiful women in order to operate a car.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com
