Carey Says F1's New Rules Starting In '21 Respect Sport's DNA
Chase Carey
Chase Carey
F1 officials "unveiled their long-awaited rules" for '21 and beyond on Thursday. F1 CEO Chase Carey insisted the changes "respect the DNA" of the open-wheel series "while improving its future." The sport "hopes it has found the formula to close the gap between teams fighting for championships and the cars bringing up the rear of the grid."

F1 has been "dominated by Mercedes" since the move to the hybrid engine in '14. While technical regulations "will create more standard parts and make the cars slightly heavier and slower, the biggest change is likely to be the new limit on what teams can spend."

Although Formula One keeps him in Europe for most of the year, the Australian star gets away to LA whenever he can.

“Immediately, it just resonated well with me,” Ricciardo said while standing in the middle of Hollywood Boulevard, his ever-present grin even broader than usual.

Adam Stern of Sports Business Daily reports that NASCAR this morning will announce a multiyear renewal with Mars in a deal that extends the company’s status as the official chocolate of NASCAR past two decades. Terms were not revealed for the renewal, but Mars will become a third-tier official partner in NASCAR’s new sponsorship model debuting next year.

Mars earlier this year announced a renewal with Joe Gibbs Racing through '22, so the NASCAR deal is likely through the same year, as sponsors often line up their deals to expire concurrently.
