F1 Testing Day 3 - The Trends Emerging After Week One

Mercedes ended the first week of Formula 1 testing in Barcelona with a fastest time and some of the best reliability. Valtteri Bottas set a time in the morning which already blows away the best lap of 2019 testing. Meanwhile, their rivals have been questioning the legality of the DAS system and whether the ability to change toe angles constitutes a breach of parc ferme rules. With three days of action to look back on, our team in the paddock analyse the form so far.

F1 Testing Day 2 - Mercedes Innovate With 'DAS' Steering

Today there was a buzz which rippled through the F1 Paddock - why was Lewis Hamilton pushing and pulling his steering wheel? As more of the assembled journalists saw on-board footage of the W11 the obvious question was: is this a technical problem or an innovation nobody else has thought of? As James Allinson would soon confirm, it was the latter. Mercedes-Benz even have a name for it - 'DAS'. On the podcast today we explain what it is, and how it can be used.

First Impressions: Alfa Romeo, Alpha Tauri and Williams

As Alex is travelling from Austria to Barcelona for pre-season testing, Jake Boxall-Legge jumps into the podcast today to run through Autosport's first impressions on the Alfa Romeo, the 'new' team Alpha Tauri and Williams. We also saw a Racing Point car earlier today but it was little more than a livery launch so we'll wait to see the car shakedown before we see their direction for 2020.

Editors Square Off On Tesla Cybertruck: Podcast #31

Somehow, in a year when we’ve seen the debut of a mid-engine Corvette and an electric Mustang, it’s Tesla that manages unveil the most controversial vehicle of the year, if not the decade, if not ever. We're obviously talking about the Tesla Cybertruck, which debuted last week in a circus-like unveiling with sledgehammers, broken glass, bullets, and an ATV. The dust has since settled, but the controversy over the truck’s design, how was it unveiled, and whether or not Elon Musk is certifiably insane continues. On this week’s episode, Senior Editor Jeff Perez and Global Editor-in-chief John Neff square off on the Tesla Cybertruck.

What we learned from the MotoGP Sepang Test

The first three-day pre-season test of the 2020 MotoGP season from the Sepang International Circuit concluded last weekend, with Petronas SRT’s Fabio Quartararo topping the timesheets. For the first time, all six manufacturers - Honda, Ducati, Yamaha, Suzuki, KTM and Aprilia - ran their 2020 prototype bikes on track together, with 2019’s rookie sensation Quartararo leading the way on the factory-spec Yamaha he’ll race this year. Yamaha unveiled its version of the ‘holeshot device’ Ducati has been using for over a year, while Aprilia’s revolution RS-GP made a strong on-track debut at Sepang and Suzuki have left a few worried. It appears Honda’s RC213V is still a troubled beast, as its turning problems remain, while two crashes for world champion Marc Marquez compounded a tough weekend for him as he put his recently-operated on right shoulder through under stress for the first time. KTM took a step forward with its RC16, while Ducati - like Honda - also appear to be on the backfoot after a low-key showing on its GP20 Desmosedici. With many more questions than answers offered up after the three days of running at Sepang, Autosport’s Motorcycle Racing Correspondent Lewis Duncan and Motorsport.com’s Oriol Puigdemont try to decipher what we learned from the first MotoGP pre-season test on the latest edition of the Tank Slappers podcast.

Citroën Quit WRC - Esapekka Lappi & Pierre Budar Talk To David Evans

Citroen Racing has announced it will depart the World Rally Championship with immediate effect - stating Sebastien Ogier's decision to move to Toyota left it with no alternative. The firm announced its decision on Wednesday, confirming mounting speculation of a withdrawal. Ogier and team-mate Esapekka Lappi had a year left to run on their contracts, but the six-time world champion's decision to walk away after a difficult season aboard the C3 WRC left Citroen with no lead driver. A statement from Citroen Racing said: "Citroen decided to withdraw from its WRC programme in 2020 due to the absence of a first-class driver available for 2020 season."
