3 reasons why Alonso will run IndyCar full-time
by Andrew Maitland (and 3 reasons why he won't) Before I even knew what team he would be driving for, I declared recently that Fernando Alonso will win this year's Indy 500 and therefore complete the so-called Triple Crown. That was before Honda reportedly vetoed the deal he had reached with Michael Andretti's top operation, meaning the former Formula 1 world champion had to resort to Plan B - McLaren's new operation. Having severed his ambassadorial ties with his former F1 employer, it clearly wasn't really what the Spaniard had in mind.

by Federico Basile Valtteri Bottas completed the final day 6 of Formula 1 pre-season testing fastest, ending the day with a 1m16.196s to go with his time last Friday of 1m15.732s - the fastest over the 6 days in his 'trick' Mercedes. Max Verstappen was 2nd quick for the week on C4 tires just 0.073s down on Bottas and fairly impressive given the C4 is harder than Bottas' C5.

by Federico Basile Using Pirelli’s softest available C5 compound Robert Kubica led the way for Alfa Romeo on Wednesday as the second Formula 1 pre-season test got underway at Barcelona. The Pole’s 1m16.942s effort, set in the morning, held up to the end and was four-tenths clear of Max Verstappen (who moved up the order with a late flurry of improvements on the C3 Medium compound) and Sergio Perez. Federico Basile was onsite to snap these 98 photos for your enjoyment
by Andrew Maitland Even though Formula 1 says it can be net carbon zero by 2030, petrol and even hybrid road cars will begin to become totally illegal all over the world as soon as 2032, thanks to over-zealous governments who care more about virtue-signaling to a growing and increasingly hysterical voter block than doing the sensible thing. And do you know what? It really could kill Formula 1 and the other forms of traditional motor racing that also still go 'broom broom'. And no matter what happens, it's going to change the racing we know and love forever. There's no doubt about that.

WILLIAMS F1 Launches, gives first look at the FW43
2020 season contender ROKiT Williams Racing has officially revealed its 2020 Formula One challenger, the Williams Mercedes FW43. The FW43 is an evolution of the FW42, with much of the development work carried out throughout 2019 feeding in to the design of this year’s car. Speaking ahead of the 2020 season, Claire Williams, Deputy Team Principal, said: “This year marks a fresh start for the team. We have spent time addressing our areas of weakness and have ensured that we have the right people, structures, procedures and resource in place to deliver competitive race cars.

The Mercedes-AMG F1 W11 EQ Performance, as the car is officially known, ran at Silverstone with Valtteri Bottas behind the wheel.
