The Big Fart Fiasco At Formula One’s Singapore Grand Prix Press Conference Keeps Getting Better

Everybody laughs at farts. If they don’t, they need to reevaluate the meaning of joy. Farts are funny, and farts are even funnier when famous athletes let them rip to liven up a generic post-race press conference in one of the most strict, fancier-than-thou racing series there is: Formula One.Read more… Continue Reading at http://jalopnik.com

Valtteri Bottas Will Drive For Mercedes In 2018 But Maybe Not After That

When Nico Rosberg retired right after winning the 2016 Formula One title, his Mercedes F1 team was left with a seat to fill—fast. So, they plucked Valtteri Bottas from Williams and signed him for a year. It made sense, given that it was a quick decision on a driver who hadn’t proven himself in the […]

Here Are Some Easy Ways To Make Honda’s Terrible Formula One Engine Competitive

Honda, as of late, makes a very bad Formula One engine. Just ask the McLaren-Honda team and golden boy Fernando Alonso, who are both sick of “racing” it.

This Lego Formula One Car Could Probably Last Longer Than Fernando Alonso’s McLaren-Honda 

That headline was mean. I’m mean. I’m sorry, I don’t know why I’m like this. Maybe someone teased me too much as a child. This video showing how Lego built a life-size replica of a Ferrari Formula One car isn’t even that great, I just wanted a chance to be mean. I’m sorry, again.Read more… […]

A “phantom debris caution” is what NASCAR fans call a late-race yellow that feels bogus, or for the sole purposes of entertainment when a field is spread out.

The Year Chicanes Ruined Formula One

1994 was a depressing year for Formula One. During the third round of the season, the world lost Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger at the San Marino Grand Prix. At the very next race, Karl Wendlinger’s had a big crash and the FIA asked for series of track safety modifications. This basically means they asked […]

The McLaren F1 Team Could Finally Get Rid Of Its Terrible, Horrible Honda Engine

As we’ve said many, many, many, many, many times before, the McLaren-Honda Formula One team is not good. The “Honda” part of it is usually what makes the team so catastrophically bad, and the team may get rid of that in 2018 by using only the second-worst engine supplier in F1: Renault.Read more… Continue Reading […]
