Picture Gallery, GP Monaco 2015. Friday 1st and 2nd free practice
In 2016, as the anniversary of the brand's centenary, BMW is expected to delight its fans with a very special gift - the first real supercar to be called the M9. Whether this will actually happen or not remains to be seen, though we don’t hope too much. Romanian designer Razvan Radion has followed a vision of what the M9 is supposed to represent - a true high-performance car that could compete with Porsches, Ferraris and Lamborghinis.
On Sunday, Formula One teams will drive the first kilometers in Jerez with new race cars. Well, almost everything, for example, the team of current world champions, Mercedes, has already tested its challenger on the track in Silverstone. Nico Rosberg was already sitting in the car during the filming of the promotional material.
According to Williams, they have also shown their car for this year’s season, called VJM08, at Force India. It will be driven by Nico Hulkenberg and Sergio Perez, who also showed off their newly painted helmets alongside the new car.
This year's SEMA, in addition to the usual extremisms and crazy alterations, also put the Hoonicorna RTR on display. It is a redesigned Ford Mustang in 1965 with all-wheel drive, which hides 845 horsepower under the hood, and its owner is none other than Ken Block. Hoonicorn will perform at Block’s Gymkhana 7. “I’m happy to be able to present this car to the public at SEMA, at Ford’s showroom,” Block said. "I worked on this project for two years and the feeling was amazing when I was finally able to drive it on the set of Gymkhana 7. I knew Vaughn Gittin along with his RTR team was the right choice as they live for the Mustangs. But on this car they are it really turned out. It's the best car I've ever driven in Gymkhana, "the American added. Inspiration for the outdoor floor
When Audi launched the first TT in 1998, it represented a minor design revolution. The second generation has become a kind of icon with a touch of racing spirit due to the generous use of light aluminum. With the third generation Audi TT, this is considered a modern classic vehicle, with top performance. Therefore, it is not surprising that the latest incarnation of TT was chosen for the new cup competition, which will take place as part of the races of the German DTM championship, the Audi TT Cup. The German company Quattro Gmbh will produce 24 Audi Sport TT Cup drills for the cup competition, 18 of which will be occupied by the best candidates of all who are willing to pay around 100.000 euros to enter a multi-level elimination process called "Challengers Welcome". The remaining six race cars will be i
Sebastian Vettel has replaced a former Ferrari racer, Gerhard Berger, at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, where the next Formula One World Championship race will take place. Berger lent Vettl his Ferrari F1-87 / 88C with which he raced in 1988 and won the Italian Grand Prix. Berger, who last raced in Formula One in 1997, was able to test Vettl’s 2012 Red Bull Renault race car, from the 2012 season, with which Sebastian won the championship. “The car is so clean, so direct,” Vettel said of driving a 16-year-old Ferrari with a 1.5-liter turbo engine. "Due to the lower vacuum, the speeds in corners are lower than in modern racing cars, but it doesn't say anything, as it has a lot of power at its disposal. Driving is a lot of fun. Great!"
Force Indie racer Nico Hulkenberg was the fastest on the first day of winter testing in Bahrain. The current world champions, Red Bull Racing, are still in trouble, as their race car failed again after only 14 laps. Mercedes teams continued to show exceptional form, with team cars from German-made engines running reliably. With a lap time of 1: 36.880, Nico Hulkenberg was one second faster than the others, noting that he set the time with a softer version of the tires. They had a few more problems at Williams, where Felipe Massa drove only five laps with FW36. At Red Bull, testing began just a quarter before 14 p.m., local time. Sebastian Vettel set the fifth time of the day, but he only managed XNUMX laps with the car. Still
Lewis Hamilton slammed into the protective tires and completely destroyed the front of the W05 race car, which had been unveiled just hours before. The accident was caused by broken front wing carriers, which gave way before the first turn of the Jerez racetrack. The Briton was the only racer next to Jean-Eric Vergen in the morning to drive the whole lap and thus record time. The car was so badly damaged in the crash that Hamilton is unlikely to return to the track today.
The C33 is the name of the Sauber race car that Adrian Sutil and Esteban Gutierrez will compete in this year's Formula One Championship. The Swiss team also opted for a nose resembling a finger, but they picked a different shape of the front wing brackets. “Because of the radical changes in the rules, it’s hard to predict the course of the season,” said chief designer Eric Gandelin. "We know what kind of package we put together and they are happy with it, but it's hard to say what form the competitors will be in. The first opportunity to hint at the power relationship between the teams will be testing. It is clear that reliability will be an important factor, so we have devoted the most time to this area.
