Could Bottas challenge Hamilton next season?
  He was hot and cold in 2017

Valtteri Bottas enjoyed a strong campaign with Mercedes after replacing 2016 Drivers’ Championship winner Nico Rosberg with the team. The Finn finished third in the standings, producing the strongest season of his career, with only Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel placing ahead of him. The 28-year-old claimed three wins over the course of the term, but now faces the challenge of improving his consistency to become a constant presence on the podium.

  Racing royalty honored on a star-studded night at Versailles

At the end of a captivating season of motor sport action across all disciplines and at all levels, the FIA last night honored its championship-winning stars at a glittering Prize Giving ceremony in the stunning surrounds of one of France’s most iconic, and most fittingly regal locations, the incredible Palace of Versailles. 

FIA Announces World Motor Sport Council Decisions
  Final meeting of 2017
The World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) has responsibility for all aspects of international motor sport. It meets at least four times a year to decide on rules, regulations, safety and development of motor sport at every level from karting to Formula One. The World Motor Sport Council gathered December 6th in Paris for its final meeting of 2017. The following is a summary of the key decisions taken during the meeting:
F1 champions honored as FIA inaugurates Hall of Fame
  New FIA Hall of Fame in Paris

The FIA last night inaugurated the new FIA Hall of Fame in Paris with nine FIA Formula 1 World Champions in attendance as all 33 winners of motorsport's most prestigious title were honored by the sport's regulator. In association with official partners Michelin and Rolex, the FIA Hall of Fame was launched at a ceremony at the headquarters of the ACF in Paris, with champions Sir Jackie Stewart, Mario Andretti, Alain Prost, Nigel Mansell, Damon Hill, Jacques Villeneuve, Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and Nico Rosberg joining representatives and family of F1's other title winners in becoming the first drivers honored by the new initiative.

F1 And Pirelli: All The Numbers From 2017 Season
  F1

From a  record-breaking  season, Pirelli have collected  some record-breaking numbers. Formula 1 introduced some radical new technical regulations this year, which resulted in the fastest cars ever seen in the history of the sport. So, Pirelli's mission was to build the fastest-ever tires, 25% wider than their predecessors to cope with the massively increased cornering speeds and energy loads, which nonetheless allowed the drivers to push hard from the start to the finish of every stint. They developed these tires throughout 2016, despite not even seeing a 2017 car until the first pre-season test at Barcelona.

David Hobbs retires after a long career in motorsports
  Retires earlier than planned after ESPN won F1 contract

NBC Sports commentator David Hobbs is retiring from his broadcasting career but not on his own terms. Hobbs is being forcibly retired, as ESPN has secured the rights to air Formula One races starting in 2018 and they will use a Sky Sports audio feed for their broadcasts. But that’s been a tough pill to swallow for Hobbs. Ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Hobbs said he’s upset that the switch to ESPN means he won’t get to sign off on his own terms, but he’s more bothered by the reason Liberty Media chose to sign a multi-year deal with the network. Hobbs was born just months before the outbreak of World War II, and has a vast, 30-year history of international driving experience at all levels of motor sports, including sports cars, touring cars, Indy cars, IMSA, Can-Am and Formula One.

As predicted by AR1.com before the weekend started, the Mercedes team turned the Abu Dhabi GP into a 1-2 parade for 55 laps. Valtteri Bottas grabbed the lead from pole at the start and was never headed as he led teammate Lewis Hamilton around the track nose to tail for 55 laps as the fans nodded off in the grandstands.  The only thing missing were the floats and the fire engines.  Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari was almost 20 seconds behind at the finish (where he started), which underscored how far ahead of the competition the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes is.
