Dec 5, 2017

The FIA has inducted all 33 Formula One world champions into its newly-launched Hall of Fame following an event in Paris on Monday.

The Hall of Fame has been created by the governing body to celebrate the achievements of drivers across motorsport, but in its first year focused solely on F1 world champions. Alain Prost, Sir Jackie Stewart and Mario Andretti were among the former champions attending the event as well as more recent winners Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg.

A Hall of Fame gallery will be opened in Paris for viewing by the public upon request and it will expand at the FIA headquarters in Geneva.

'Peak hour of power' set to take over Adelaide streets for motorsport festival - CarAdvice

The Adelaide Motorsport Festival will be taking to the streets next week, as part of the ‘peak hour of power’. Featuring the likes of Craig Lowndes, Garth Tander, Cam Waters and Troy Bayliss piloting an eye-popping array of classic racers, the procession will work its way through traffic on its way to a party on Gouger Street, Adelaide.

We experienced this craziness first-hand in 2016, where we sat side-by-side with historical Formula One cars, driven by ex-F1 champions, on the public road. Perhaps more entertaining than the cars, though, was the public’s reaction when a stream of priceless racers rolled past them without any prior warning.

It’s a totally unique idea, and one unlikely to be given the green light in any other state. In fact, there aren’t many places where you’ll see a cavalcade of classic and contemporary cars like this on city streets. There are even fewer places...

How Gran Turismo Sport plans to change motorsport - Drive

Developing one of the world's most popular video games is no easy task. 

But that is the goal Japanese game developer, Kazunori Yamauchi, set about accomplishing when he started work on the first Gran Turismo game 25 years ago. 

Now with the release of the franchise's long-awaited seventh edition, Gran Turismo Sport, Yamauchi and his team has hit new heights in excellence in gameplay.

However, the Gran Tursimo supremo has also played-up the importance of the PlayStation-only gaming franchise in the future of real-world motorsport. 

The rising popularity of eSports has shown the potential of motorsport themed games around the globe and how that popularity can be converted into interest in real-world racing, along with highlighting the skill of many would-be track dynamos.

Motor racing: Hamilton tops poll of Formula One bosses - Reuters

LONDON (Reuters) - Formula One team bosses have voted Lewis Hamilton as the sport’s top driver for the fourth year in a row but Mercedes team mate Valtteri Bottas slipped to 10th place in the rankings.

The poll, published by motorsport.com on Thursday, put four times world champion Hamilton far ahead of closest rival Max Verstappen.

Bottas, winner of three races this year after joining as now-retired 2016 world champion Nico Rosberg’s replacement, was listed in 10th place after bosses awarded points according to the regular F1 scoring system.

That represented a drop of one place on where Bottas had been with Williams in 2016.

Hamilton scored 233 out of a maximum 250, with Red Bull’s Verstappen on 143. Ferrari’s...

F1 first to take place in 2018 as calendar revealed - NEWS.com.au

THE Federation International de l’Automobile (FIA) has confirmed the 21-race F1 calendar for 2018 following a World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris.

The schedule features the sport’s first triple header as France and Germany return while Malaysia drops out.

The only change from the provisional calendar is the date swap between China and Bahrain, with the Sakhir race now heading up the first back-to-back of the season.

Singapore was the only other event that was subject to approval at the time of the provisional calendar, but a new race contract was confirmed in September.

The 2018 F1 season will begin in Australia on March 25, the same weekend as this year, and end in Abu Dhabi on November 25.

The Azerbaijan GP in Baku will take place two months earlier on April 29, while the Russian GP in Sochi has been moved back to a late September slot after hosting this year’s fourth...

Autonomous motorsport will be 'completely crazy', says Roborace chief - Wheels Magazine

AUTONOMOUS cars are coming to our roads. But while the first self-driving road car could take a decade or more to become reality, there’s a faster version that’s poised to replace humans much sooner.

Lucas di Grassi is a factory Audi racing driver, and chief executive of Roborace, the company pushing to develop the world’s first autonomous racing series.

Roborace has already tested what it dubs ‘Devbots’ at rounds of the Formula E world championship. The cars aren’t breaking any speed records, but have successfully lapped various circuits without a driver behind the wheel – although, there have been a few metal-bending mistakes along the way, just like human drivers.


But Roborace’s intentions, and the growth of autonomous tech pose interesting questions for motorsport and the world of car racing: Could self-driving technology be implemented on the race track? How will it learn the...

Mark Webber to be inducted into Australian Motor Sport Hall of Fame - Motor Magazine

Mark Webber, one of Australia’s most internationally renowned race drivers, is to be inducted into the Australian Motor Sport Hall of Fame.

As Webber has been retired from his primary motorsport career for two years, this is the first year Webber has been eligible for the honour.

He will join the likes of Sir Jack Brabham and Peter Brock as the 52nd inductee into the Hall of Fame, after presenting his friend and motorcycle Speedway world champ Jason Crump with an inductee medal last year.

“For me to join the list of other inductees is very, very special,” says Webber, “obviously the list includes a lot of heroes of mine.

“99% of my racing was done overseas and I am proud of that, but it is nice to be recognised for what we achieved and some of the results along the way.”

Webber, who earned himself the nickname ‘Aussie Grit’, first won a Formula 1 race at the German GP in 2009 with...

The video for "MotorSport" by Migos, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B is officially out. You can watch the futuristic visuals filled with extremely expensive cars over on Apple Music. 

Migos released "MotorSport," the first single off their upcoming album Culture II, in late October. It didn't take long for people to speculate whether the song's featured artists, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, were taking shots at one another in their respective verses. A few days later, Nicki added fuel to the fire by claiming the song initially consisted of just her and Quavo, and she approved the decision to put Cardi on the track.

Migos provided some behind-the-scenes footage from their "MotorSport" music video recently, and Nicki was nowhere to be found. Based on the final version, they were holding out for her appearance.

When asked on The Norte Show on Capital Xtra about her relationship with Nicki, Cardi...
