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

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.

“Athletes” being plural in that first paragraph might have thrown you off if you saw the Singapore Grand Prix podium press conference, since it seemed like Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo (naturally) was the only one shameless enough to fart with all of those of cameras and people around. But Ricciardo told Fox Sports Australia awhile after that it was really a deal between himself and three-time champion Lewis Hamilton, who both had to fart and didn’t want to do it alone.

The Red Bull Formula One Team Kicked My Ass - Jalopnik

GIF

I never knew just how out of shape my garbage marshmallow body was until I attempted a brief sample of what the Red Bull Racing Formula One drivers put themselves through in order to handle the brutal forces of an F1 car. F1 drivers have to be strong, fit and able to react quickly in order to win, and they’re constantly training when they’re not in the car to stay on their A-game.

Oh, and I now know what it feels like to experience true shame.

[Full disclosure: Red Bull Racing’s oil partner Mobil 1 and gas partner Esso wanted to make a point about having “energy to perform” by giving us exactly none of that here. They paid for travel, food and lodging, arranged interviews with members of the Red Bull Racing team, and threw us passes to the Italian Grand Prix Thursday media day.]

It’s a little intimidating to drive a sim in front of a couple of drivers who are much, much...

Haas F1 team principal Guenther Steiner is defending team orders imposed during the Formula 1 Singapore race last weekend after Romain Grosjean finished ninth after teammate Kevin Magnussen was told to let him pass.

When Magnussen emerged from his car under the city-state's floodlights, he told the media that being ordered by his bosses to give up a place to Grosjean potentially cost the team points. Afterward, however, he told the Danish newspaper BT: "After the race, I said on TV that the decision cost us points. But it was a slightly different situation than I thought."

Indeed, Steiner said the order was simply a matter of making the best use of race strategy to boost the team's chances of points.

Haas' drivers are 13th and 14th in the standings. On the...

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

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.

“Athletes” being plural in that first paragraph might have thrown you off if you saw the Singapore Grand Prix podium press conference, since it seemed like Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo (naturally) was the only one shameless enough to fart with all of those of cameras and people around. But Ricciardo told Fox Sports Australia awhile after that it was really a deal between himself and three-time champion Lewis Hamilton, who both had to fart and didn’t want to do it alone.

The FIA has approved changes to the Formula 1 superlicense qualification structure, according to a report in Autosport, and it now includes several news paths to the most prestigious motorsport in the world.

To earn a F1 license, drivers must earn 40 FIA points over a three-year period.

Previously, the champions of F2 (GP2,) European Formula 3, Formula E, IndyCar and the World Endurance Championship’s LMP1 class all received the necessary 40 points in one fell swoop. But with the decision made on Thursday, the point allotment structure has changed for several divisions across the globe.

The top-three drivers in F2 will continue to receive 40 points. This decision also retroactively provides 40 points to drivers that finished third over the past two seasons...
