Aston Martin will become the title sponsor of Red Bull racing for next season. The team will be Aston Martin Red Bull Racing.

Aston Martin President and CEO, Andy Palmer, said: "Title partnership is the next logical step for our Innovation Partnership with Red Bull Racing. We are enjoying the global brand awareness that a revitalised Formula One provides. The power unit discussions (in Formula One) are of interest to us, but only if the circumstances are right. We are not about to enter an engine war with no restrictions in cost or dynamometer hours but we believe that if the FIA can create the right environment we would be interested in getting involved."

So, will next season's car be an Aston Martin Red Bull Racing Honda?

I read this article on improved safety barriers & thought I'd pass it along. Long time GT racer Spencer Pumpelly makes a good case for tire curtains. These are tire stacks that are fastened together into rows. Several of these rows, or "curtains", are set up in front of the wall with a gap between each row.

Pumpelly points out how these do a much better job of safely slowing cars that run full speed off the track & straight at the wall. He refers to them as "rogue cars." I agree with him that this should be made more common.

While most of us ( and probably most of F1 ) wish the FIA would do away with grid penalties for power unit failures, the FIA in it's infinite stupidity will tighten the rules on engine parts replacement which will surely result in more ridiculous penalties being enforced. They might as well draw straws for grid spots.   >:D

One of my all time favorite drivers, Hans Stuck talks about the Audi GTO effort. Stuck always seemed to be having a ton of fun driving race cars when other drivers were darkly serious. Audi had less power, a turboed I5 giving 720 BHP, but all wheel drive gave it better brakes and made it easier on it's tires.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/formulaone/article-4892966/Lewis-Hamilton-mission-vegan.html

I'm very much a meat an potatoes (and chocolate) kind of girl, but more and more people going vegan is hard to ignore.

I suspect that in another generation or so, veganism will be normal and eating meat will be seen with some disdain.  I'm not looking forward to those days at all, but I am aware of the environmental costs of raising meat, so I do get it.

If you're in the market for a new supercar, (and I know you are), perhaps this video from McLaren will help you make your mind up which one to buy.



I'm not sure how you would feel in your new McLaren when this water bike literally blasts past you!
