The American Haas F1 car for 2018 was launched. The car is 90% Italian (Dallara) and 10% made in the UK. The design appears to be a copy of last year's Ferrari. Even the drivers are not American, so it is not really an American team.

by Pete McCole
After losing out on his first-career Atlanta Motor Speedway pole due to a disqualification at this same event two years ago, Kyle Busch found some vindication on Friday as he rocketed to the top of the speed charts in the third and final round of knockout qualifying to win the pole for Sunday's Folds Of Honor QuikTrip 500 for his 28th-career Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series pole.

Porsche Development in four dimensions
Michael Steiner on the dawn of a new age of mobility
Over the next ten to fifteen years Porsche will be relying on a triumvirate of drive concepts. Porsche will offer vehicles with continuously optimized combustion engines, attractive plug-in hybrid models and purely electric sports cars in parallel. The reason: Since demand for e-mobility is developing very differently in the various regions of the world, the strategy pursued by a company with a global presence must be as flexible as possible during this transitional period. Purely electric vehicles will play an increasingly significant role in the future, for Porsche as well as for everyone else.
Continuity Helps Haas F1 Team Continue To Grow
But are they fast enough?
The refrain "same as it ever was" in Talking Heads' 1981 hit "Once In A Lifetime" resonates 37 years later within Haas F1 Team. The only American team competing in the FIA Formula One World Championship returns for its third season with the same driver lineup it had in 2017 amid relatively unchanged technical regulations. Drivers Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen find themselves in another part of the world behind the wheel of a large automobile as preseason testing begins at Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya.

Take a Number: And the Number Shall be Three
Longtime NASCAR fans will, of course, remember the day 20 years ago when Dale Earnhardt finally drove the No. 3 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet into Victory Lane after the 1998 Daytona 500. It took Earnhardt two decades to win the Great American Race. It took the No. 3 two more to do it again.
Aldo Costa is the greatest designer in F1 history
Even Adrian Newey can't touch him
The British media likes to fawn over Adrian Newey, but in fact Aldo Costa designed cars have won as many F1 World Driving titles (ten) as Newey and the two are tied for the most in history. However, Costa has 12 constructor championships under his belt, and this is tops in F1.
Ferrari launches 2018 F1 car in Maranello
Can Ferrari catch Mercedes in 2018
Ferrari has unveiled its latest grand prix racing car, the SF71H, ahead of the 2018 Formula 1 season and its design is a lot like the new Mercedes - a longer wheelbase this year, like the Mercedes and a much narrower car, especially at the back.
