Hamilton pans idiotic F1 engine rules
Hamilton likens his F1 ride next year to a school bus.
Hamilton likens his F1 ride next year to a school bus.
Lewis Hamilton says the decision to reduce the maximum number of engines per season for each driver from four to three before incurring a penalty "sucks".

The FIA believes reducing the number of engines will bring costs down – although that hasn't been the case with drivers taking extra engines when required and just accepting that brings with it a penalty – and agreed that each season the number would reduce, with 2018 set to drop to three.

IndyCar shock rules wipe out any bodykit savings

Anyone can buy Penske shocks, but no one can buy the version that goes on Penske's own cars

IndyCar is rolling out a simplified body kit next season to cut costs and improve racing. IndyCar estimates that the new Bodykit will save teams $216K per entry in 2018.

Unfortunately that savings is more than wiped out by the silly shock package rules that allow teams to develop their own shocks. Teams will spend a minimum of $250K-$300K per car including development and testing on shocks in 2018 and every year thereafter.

FOX NASCAR at Homestead-Miami Speedway Quote
Fox Race Hub group
Fox Race Hub group
On the favorite to win the MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES championship:

I don’t see any weaknesses in Martin Truex Jr. and the No. 78 team. They just execute.  I’ve been on the Truex bandwagon nearly all year and would love to see him win the championship because of everything he has been through. But I think Harvick is the guy to beat.  They found speed in his Fords as of late.  His mile-and-a-half track performances have been stout, and like Tony Stewart said, when you put Harvick in this situation, it’s like dangling a piece of meat in front of a hungry tiger.  I’d like to see Truex win the championship, but I think this championship goes through Harvick.”
