F1: Italy
The American Haas F1 car for 2018 was launched. The car is 90% Italian (Dallara) and 10% made in the UK. The design appears to be a copy of last year's Ferrari. Even the drivers are not American, so it is not really an American team.

Toyota Owners Looking To Repeat Success In 2018
Toyota racing executive Ed Laukes sat alongside the make’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series team owners Joe Gibbs and Barney Visser to address the racing media eager for the group to step right in where it left off in 2017 - a lot of victory circles and on stage hoisting the championship trophy.
Porsche Development in four dimensions
  Michael Steiner on the dawn of a new age of mobility
Over the next ten to fifteen years Porsche will be relying on a triumvirate of drive concepts. Porsche will offer vehicles with continuously optimized combustion engines, attractive plug-in hybrid models and purely electric sports cars in parallel. The reason: Since demand for e-mobility is developing very differently in the various regions of the world, the strategy pursued by a company with a global presence must be as flexible as possible during this transitional period. Purely electric vehicles will play an increasingly significant role in the future, for Porsche as well as for everyone else.
Continuity Helps Haas F1 Team Continue To Grow
  But are they fast enough?
The refrain "same as it ever was" in Talking Heads' 1981 hit "Once In A Lifetime" resonates 37 years later within Haas F1 Team. The only American team competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship returns for its third season with the same driver lineup it had in 2017 amid relatively unchanged technical regulations. Drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen find themselves in another part of the world behind the wheel of a large automobile as preseason testing begins at Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya.
McLaren Unveils Striking 2018 Challenger: The MCL33
  Cross between Mercedes and Ferrari
McLaren today revealed its much-anticipated new Formula 1 car. The striking MCL33 will contest the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, and marks the first time in McLaren’s 52-year history that it has run a car powered by Renault engines. The car will race in a stunning new livery that draws its inspiration directly from the team’s iconic papaya orange and blue color scheme that McLaren first raced in Formula 1 50 years ago.
Take a Number: And the Number Shall be Three
  Amy Henderson
Longtime NASCAR fans will, of course, remember the day 20 years ago when Dale Earnhardt finally drove the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet into Victory Lane after the 1998 Daytona 500. It took Earnhardt two decades to win the Great American Race. It took the No. 3 two more to do it again.

Aldo Costa is the greatest designer in F1 history
  Even Adrian Newey can't touch him
The British media likes to fawn over Adrian Newey, but in fact Aldo Costa designed cars have won as many F1 World Driving titles (ten) as Newey and the two are tied for the most in history. However, Costa has 12 constructor championships under his belt, and this is tops in F1. 
Ferrari launches 2018 F1 car in Maranello
  Can Ferrari catch Mercedes in 2018

Ferrari has unveiled its latest grand prix racing car, the SF71H, ahead of the 2018 Formula 1 season and its design is a lot like the new Mercedes - a longer wheelbase this year, like the Mercedes and a much narrower car, especially at the back. The sidepods are especially aggressive and it remains to be seen whether Ferrari has caught and passed Mercedes in performance.

  Latest Aldo Costa design looks unbeatable

Keen to start racing again next month, an excited Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team launched its new car today at the Silverstone International Circuit with a multimedia reveal show, live online broadcasts and shakedown runs.

Daytona 500 postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
I don’t know what Austin Dillon was thinking the moment he made contact with Aric Almirola on the final lap of Sunday’s Daytona 500. Almirola, of course, was the race leader when the field took the white flag during NASCAR overtime as Dillon, rookie Darrell Wallace Jr. and 2016 Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin were behind in close pursuit.
The new Ferrari 488 Pista
  A Brilliant Track-Derived Exhilaration And Performance
The Ferrari 488 Pista, which will be unveiled at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, is the successor to Ferrari’s V8-engined special series - the 360 Challenge Stradale, 430 Scuderia and 458 Speciale – which have received critical acclaim for their performance and undiluted handling. The Ferrari 488 Pista marks a significant step forward from the previous special series in terms of both sporty dynamics and for the level of technological carry-over from racing. The name is, in fact, a direct homage to Ferrari’s unparalleled heritage in motor sports.
Max Verstappen on new F1 rule changes
  And why he misses Ricciardo's smile in off season.
Max Verstappen is looking forward to getting back into the Red Bull Racing F1 cockpit this season after a frustrating 2017 ended with him finishing sixth overall. The Dutchman suffered seven retirements last season, but believes he can use a relaxing off season to make a charge at his first drivers' title in 2018. We caught up with Verstappen at the factory, here is a selection of what he had to say:
