The crew at Car Throttle bring us a feature on an engineers play thing; a late-model BMW E30 with a built 6L american small block V8 with two snails. E30s with 200whp are a riot to drive, so 'Widow Maker' is an appropriate name given its short wheelbase. Great work Ross.

We're a race away from the F1 season finale. This second to last event, that's before us, is in Brazil. Picking up where we left off, in F1's return to Mexico, we had some major headlines. Gutierrez and Grosjean will make up the Haas F1 driver lineup in '16. Also, both Ferrari's DNF'd; this had pretty big implications as Rosberg is on his game and took pole, during a wet qualifying, and took the checkered flag in Mexico. Nico is now in 2nd place in the Driver's Championship standings, gaining 25pts on Vettel. Also, before Vettel retired he was driving in a manner unfamiliar to those who have seen him race since the day's of Red Bull's junior team through now; he was chasing it, pushing way to hard and falling victim to some of the trickier corners on the circuit, specifically turn 7. He was caught out by this turn multiple times, with the last time being the finishing blow, sliding into the barrier all 4 locked up. Kimi on the other hand, who ruined Botas chance a finishing the race in Russia, destroyed his own rear suspension with a dangerous passing attempt over Botas, as if it was karma. Botas emerged from the tread on tread impact unscathed and finished in 3rd, which allowed him to put 15pts on Raikkonnen. Kvyat and Ricciardo finished 4th and 5th, respectively and Red Bull is showing their mighty competitive in these later races despite Mexico having the fastest straight on the calendar. Red Bull is still determining an engine supplier for '16; Merc, Ferrari and Honda are off the table per last reports. With the smoke cleared the driver standings are as follows: Hamilton (WDC), Rosberg (-73), Vettel (-94), Botas (-219), Raikkonen (-222), Massa (-228).

This weekend in Brazil should be another good one; Hams is looking to close out strong and crush Nico's spirit, Nico is trying to show he's worthy of challenging for the WDC next year and beat Vettel, Ferrari is trying to show strength as #2 in the Constructors Championship with Williams Martini trying to finish as close as possible (Massa is creeping on Kimi in the WDC). Force India looks to do their best attempt in chasing down Red Bull, but more realistically they want to finish strong to build upon their position for next season, separating further from Lotus. Vestappen and the young Toro Rosso boys are running well and look to pass Lotus in the Constructors. McLaren, the DNF kings of 2015, are looking to not finish behind Sauber (but it doesn't look good). We'll have to see what shakes out.
Enjoy your weekends.

The long rainy weekend in Austin Texas ended with a dry track and a declared World Drivers Champion. Before we get to that we have to talk about the rain. It rained so much the coverage of Qualifying was limited, taking place the morning of the GP. The various F1 teams entertained the few fans that camped out on; some dancing, some waving, some acting out imaginary rowing competitions. Rosberg took poll, with Hamilton in 2nd spot. The Ferrari boys had a 2016 power unit putting them over the limit for 2015. Being docked 10 grid positions they started no better than 13th. The Red Bulls were quick in the wet and were looking forward to competing. The race started somewhat predictably, but then it all went out the window. It wasn't raining, but the track was still wet, some spots worse than others. Everyone started on the Inters, but as incidents piled up and the yellow flags started waving, folks hit the pits early and gambled on the Softs, some too early. The McLaren's raced well with the conditions, along with Force India for another quick race. The Red Bulls brought it, Kvyat spent much of the early laps up Hams gearbox. Nico lost ground early but clawed his way back into the top four. Then the Inters started dropping off, Hams fell off the pace and hit the pits for Softs. Then things got really interesting. Without turning this into War and Peace, DNF's abounded. Nico bungled late and proved he wasn't ready to fight Hamilton this year. Hulkenburg made another bad mistake late resulting in a DNF. Alexander Rossi had a great first home race in Austin and was the crowd favorite next to Hams and Vettel was about one lap away from possibly challenging Rosberg for 2nd, which would've put off Hamilton's clinch for another race; but it was not to be.

With the smoke cleared, Rosberg leap frogs Vettel for 2nd overall, so they'll be duking it out for 2nd in the Drivers Championship. AMG Petronas Mercedes double Champions again for two years in a row, Hams passes Vettel in GP victories and matches Senna in World Championships. Sergio Perez has been on a tear lately and did well in Texas finishing 5th behind the young Max Verstappen in 4th. He'll be at his home GP this weekend in Mexico City so this should be a good one with last week's Hurricane now past. Enjoy your weekends.

We have the 16th round of the 2015 F1 season upon us at Circuit of the America's in Texas this weekend. Since it's local we get plenty of extra coverage which we usually miss, which is nice. Where we last left off was the Grand Prix of Russia. Here are the highlights; Carlos Sainz had a bad accident during FP3 which resulted him going to the hospital overnight for monitoring. He made the grid for the Gran Prix, but unfortunately had another (much less violent) incident which lead to a DNF. Hamilton won the race, but didn't have the seemingly faster Rosberg to battle with. Rosberg started well and lead the race for a few laps before a seemingly odd sticking throttle pedal afflicted his car which lead to a DNF. This is key, because he was being chased by Vettel in the Driver's Championship; Seb took 2nd so he's now in the second spot overall. This definitely doesn't appear to be Nico's year. McLaren had another so so outing, but Jenson got resigned for 2016 as they want to continue to build the car with stability in the drivers seat. We all know what Alonso had to say about Honda over the intercom at Suzuka so its likely he won't be begged to return. Meanwhile the Sahara Force India duo had a good outing all weekend with solid pace, Checo running the quickest. Unfortunately for Hulkenberg he lost the rear end on the opening lap and came together with Ericsson (double DNF). Sergio made his way to the front of the field on an aggressive pit strategy spawned from a yellow flag early in the race, but ran out of grip towards the end, getting passed by both Fins, Raikkonen and Botas. Raikkonen got behind early despite his decent qualifying position on Saturday and was working hard to pass Botas and put his Ferrari on the podium. He tried a very aggressive pass late in the race and stuck his nose in a bit harshly and collided with Botas, ending his race. Kimi broke his front suspension, but made his way around the track to finish 5th, being passed by Checo and Massa while shooting sparks along the way. This gave Force India its second podium in two years, which the team was thrilled with. Botas was pissed of course and the result from the stewards was a 25 second penalty which effectively put Kimi in 8th. Constructors Championship implications abounded, as Rosberg's DNF just about removed any real ability for Mercedes to clinch in Russia like last year, but Kimi's finishing position would be key. Mercedes had to win by 3 or more points to clinch and with Kimi's reduction from 5th to 8th, Mercedes clinched the Constructors' in Russia for a second year in a row.

With the smoke now cleared the Driver's Championship is as follows: Hamilton, Vettel (-66), Rosberg (-73), Raikonnen (-179), Bottas (-191). COTA is one of Hams' favorite tracks so this should be another solid fight between the high power output cars.

Enjoy your weekends.

We have another solid motorsport weekend ahead with World Endurance Championship action from Fuji and F1 in Russia. When we last hit the circuit at Suzuka, we had a more familiar outcome to qualifying and the grand prix. However the weekend's weather was less familiar; heavy rain all weekend until qualifying. The GP was lovely and sunny, which lead to much more tire deg than expected. Rosberg took pole despite Hams looking like he could've taken it, however Kvyat put his rear on the grass and destroyed his car in Q3, negating all hot laps before the checker. The race started hot and fast, with Hamilton working his way into the lead on the first turn and Ricciardo finding contact with Massa, both of them ending up with punctures. Vettel took second spot early, but Rosberg's pace reeled him in by mid-race. Alonso wasn't so happy being passed by the back of the field in Japan (finished 11th), Button (finished 16th) was a bit more diplomatic post-race, but at the moment it doesn't look good for McLaren's driver lineup for 2016. Hulkenberg had a great race, getting through the field to finish 6th. Same goes for Verstappen who made his way through to finish well into the points (9th) ahead of his teammate, Sainz. The Lotus boys finished 7th & 8th despite very public financial troubles. Both RedBulls finished outside of the points, so there were several teams not happy with their performances this weekend. But Alexander Rossi, the young American racing from Manor, out performed his teammate and had another good outing. There's a gang of strong young drivers ready to cycle into the landscape.

With the smoke now clear the standings are as follows: Hamilton, Rosberg (-48), Vettel (-59), Raikkonen (-158), Bottas (-166). Sochi should be another interesting race, a technical race that should help some of the more Aero-strong teams compete with the top of the field. Enjoy your weekends.

This past F1 weekend in Singapore was quite the adventure for multiple drivers. Vettel came away with a race win, surpassing Senna with 43 wins and his 3rd win this season. Ferrari was very strong all weekend. Ricciardo took second with Raikkonen right behind him. Rosberg took fourth. Hamilton (power unit issues), Alonso, Button, Hulkenberg and Massa didn't finish. Massa and Hulkenberg had an incident at pit exit that the stewards decided in Massa's favor, but Hulkenberg took the immediate brunt and immediately retired; Massa's retirement came from the result of gearbox issues that may or may not have happened without the contact. Bottas finished 5th, Kvyat 6th, followed by Perez and the Toro Rosso dual of Sainz and the young Verstappen. Toro Rosso pit leadership gave Verstappen team orders (with a few laps) left to let Sainz by, presumably for driver's championship standing help, but he didn't oblige. I don't blame him. Hamilton was in as good a spirits as I've seen him after a DNF, but on his side is a large quantity of championship points. Rosberg on the other hand has Maranello's finest breathing down his neck. There were also yellow flags a plenty in this race; once for some random dude that wandered on to the circuit. Hopefully he's in jail tonight. After the smoke cleared the standings are as follows: Hamilton, Rosberg (-41), Vettel (-49), Raikkonen (-145), Bottas (-151).

This weekend we're at another technical track, Suzuka. Mercedes has shown they aren't as reliable as they could be, and not the fastest around in every scenario. This should be another opportunity for Ferrari to run wild, but if Hamilton wants to win this championship they better figure their issues out.

Enjoy your weekends.

We have a loaded weekend ahead, with USCC, WEC, F1 and the regulars. To get caught up for this weekends night race in Singapore, lets get quickly caught up with the events of Monza. Lewis got a good start and never let it go. Ferrari was fast, Vettel took second and Kimi's launch procedure didn't work out and he had to fight from last place to take fifth. Rosberg had a poor start but fought his way back into third only to DNF via engine detonation with 2 laps left (a used power unit with about six races on it to replace the problematic 2016 beta unit which Hams also ran). Massa held off Bottas to round off the podium, much to the tifosi's delight. The Force India boys, Perez and Hulkenburg, finished sixth and seventh respectively. There was some controversy with Hams pit instruction towards the end of the race due to some minute tire pressure anomaly reported on one of his rear tires. He made a 25+ second gap to avoid a potential time penalty, but his win still stood after scrutineering. With the smoke cleared, the standings are as follows: Hamilton, Rosberg (-53), Vettel (-74), Massa (-155), Raikkonen (-160). Both Vettel and Massa jumped a spot.

Under the magical lights and tight barriers of the downtown Singapore street circuit, the battle for the championship will continue. Street circuits will suit some of the cars that have better aero than top-end power, so hopefully McLaren can compete mid-pack again. These last two power tracks have made them look very out of place once again, the most recent resulting in another DNF (Alonso).

Enjoy your weekends.

It's that time again for us to enjoy the majesty that is Monza and the Tifosi that cheer Scudaria Ferrari on. Before that happens a quick recap on what took place at Spa. Mercedes came back with a vengeance, running nearly a second a lap quicker than anyone else on the grid. Hams took pole, again, topping Rosberg's best qualy lap by over half a second. McLaren looked week again, on this power track and Monza likely won't be much different. Ferrari, despite multiple technical issues on Kimi's car and not that great of pace on Vettel's car, had an opportunity for podium via a tire gamble that didn't pan out; Seb lost his right-rear after 27 laps on his primes, just a few laps before the checkered flag (finished out of the points in 12th/DNF; Kimi finished 7th). Force India was quick all weekend and Sergio Perez did quite well (5th). The Williams boys competed hard this weekend, but the pit still cost Bottas a chance at podium (9th) via drive-through due to a busch-league error in tire installation -- one of these tires is not like the other (Massa finished ahead, leap-frogging him in standings). Hamilton got the start he wanted and won, with Rosberg working hard to reel him in. Meanwhile, the Red Bull's were flying quickly on Sunday only to have Ricciardo DNF with an engine failure. Kvyat raced well, overtaking at will, but couldn't catch Grosjean who took his Lotus to a podium for the first time in over a year (with a 5 grid spot penalty for power-unit repairs). Lotus is in the midst of legal troubles and the team treated this podium like a championship. Young Max Verstappen finished 8th on his home track and has looked strong, lately. Four cars retired on this demanding track leaving plenty of mechanical issues to be sorted going into this Italian GP weekend.

With the smoke cleared the driver standings are as follows: Hamilton, Rosberg (-28), Vettel (-67), Raikkonen (-145), Massa (-145). This weekend should be sensational as always with the ruckus fans, but it's hard to say if Ferrari will be able to give the people something to cheer for; we'll have to tune in to find out. Enjoy your weekends.

We have a smorgasbord of racing this weekend along with new regular shows. F1 returns after summer break to Belgium, so everyone can continue the first half season story which last left off in Hungary. That was an exciting race, one of the most unpredictable of the year, and the notables were plentiful. Kimi had car problems that kept him off the podium. Ferrari showed they have true pace and took a genuine win, with Vettel taking the checkered flag. Red Bull Racing took 2nd and 3rd, showing they appear to have gotten the pace addressed, at least enough to be competitive on downforce heavy technical tracks like the Hungaroring. Hams launch (and Rosbergs for that matter) was slower than Ferraris' and mixing it up ended up costing Hamilton quite a bit early; despite a roller-coaster of events he stuck with it and ended up finishing 6th. While Rosberg got ahead of Hams early, during his late-race dicing with Ricciardo his rear tire was cut, but removed his chances of getting ahead of Hams in the Driver's Championship (8th). McLaren had it's best outing of the entire season, Alonso finishing 5th and Button finishing in 9th; they had some decent pace and Alonso was mixing it up like old times. After the smoke cleared, the standing are as follows: Hamilton, Rosberg (-21), Vettel (-42), Bottas (-125), Raikkonen (-126). This weekend at Spa should be another strong track for folks with well dialed-in aero.
Enjoy your weekends.

    Lewis brought it home in one of the greatest tire change calls in the history of F1, Kimi hit the nitrous button too soon (junior), and Vettel found his way back on the podium, right behind Nico. Masa and Bottas missed their chance for a win, with a combination of touchy politics and poor rain performance with the intermediates. They still finished well, but the team has to figure out how to close the deal. There were retirements out the wazoo, including Jason Button in front of his home crowd. His teammate Alonso, who was non-maliciously responsible for Button's retirement, went on to take his (and Mclaren Honda's) first championship point in 10th place. This weekend brings us to the very technical Hungaroring circuit. This should be another exciting race, but Silverstone has to have been the best race of the year thus far.

    RIP to Jules Bianchi who recently passed after several months battling the head injury he suffered at Suzuka last season. Racing drivers always put their lives on the line, so hopefully lessons learned can make accidents like his less likely to reoccur. I think the Virtual Safety Car is a step in the right direction.

Ricciardo finished in the points after a disappointing Q2 where he missed the Q3 cut and most significantly McLaren double DNFing again, with Alonso retiring in spectacular fashion after Kimi lost the rear end at a very high rate of speed, then collected him. This weekend we're in legendary Silverstone for the British Grand Prix. I'm sure Hams wants this one pretty bad. Enjoy your holiday folks.

    Neo-Vintage Feature: Sir Stirling Moss and this Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR Remain Unbeaten (Petrolicious)

    Petrolicious did us all a favor and made a short film on Sir Stirling Moss and his 1955 Mille Miglia win in the legendary '722' Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR. Just think -- racing just under 1k miles, Italian country side, no rollbars, period tire technology and going over 170mph through spectators, trees and buildings on either side of the road. All without knowing the course. Cajones, my friends.

    F1 returns to Austria for the next contest in the 2015 season. Hams bounced back after a tough time at Monaco and put together a solid race in Canada, the same track where he won his first GP. The usual suspects made up the top two, with Nico second and a new comer in Bottas taking third. Kimi finally tops Vettel, in fourth, but Vettel (5th) came from the back of the field. Also, Massa, finished in 6th after making a strong drive from the back of the field as well. Mercedes wins for the first time in Canada. And McLaren lays another egg, with a double DNF (as did Marussia). Maldonado actually put together a decent race, finishing 7th ahead of Grosjean (9th) and Nico Hulkenberg had an above average outing finishing in 8th for Force India. Congrats again to Nico Hulkenberg for his P1 team-driver finish at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, in the Porsche 919; this makes 17 overall Le Mans wins for Porsche. Enjoy your weekends.

    This weekend is jam packed; F1 action in Canada on NBCSN/NBC and Isle of Man coverage starting every night, for seven days, starting this Saturday night on Velocity. Don't forget folks, next week is the legendary Le Mans.

    Nico Rosberg is coming off two victories, the last being in Monte Carlo; his third straight win on his home turf. Hams was inexplicably sabotaged by his team, making a very questionable pit stop during the aftermath of Verstappen's failed pursuit of passing Grosjean for another position. Bang crash, virtual safety car, then real safety car, then why do you need new tires with ~18 laps left on softs when the first set of supersofts lasted ~30 laps on a full tank? Ah well. Hams took the high road and didn't bash his team, which would've been bad since he just signed a monster contract. Meanwhile Vettel keeps racking up podiums and has found a way to split the two Mercs for the second time this season (Kimi doing it himself in Bahrain). This weekend the F1 folks are in Canada, so it should be a good one. Enjoy your weekends.
