The Red Hot Burn That Is Testing F1 Brakes

Video: Hot, hot, hot. That’s what happens when something — like say, the wheel of an F1 car — is spinning so impossibly fast and then gets immediately clamped down by the brakes. It glows and pulsates a wonderful orange that looks like molten steel. This footage from Brembo testing their brakes shows how it all happens.

Ferrari's Formula 1 Infographics Are Just Beautiful

Missed out on all the Sunday night action of this weekend’s Formula 1 Hungarian Grand Prix? While an official replay video might be (annoyingly) hard to come by, you can relive the race in a different way, by scrolling on your smartphone or tablet or PC.

F1 Racing is like driving jets on the ground. NASCAR is like racing monster cars in sheet metal around an oval. Indy Car are powerful beasts themselves.

The Most Stylish F1 Pit Stop Crew Looks Like Stormtroopers In Suits

Video: Completely silly and self serving but also completely dripping in cool. Hackett Martini Racing teamed up with men’s suit maker Hackett to outfit their pit crew in stylish suits as they go about their pit stop in glorious slow motion.

The Formula 1 safety car might become a thing of the past, with the recent testing of a new speed governing system in drivers’ cockpits at today’s Grand Prix at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin, Texas.

Here's A F1 Car Racing Against A Motorcycle Racing Against A Supercar

Video: For a second, you think hey maybe the motorcycle has a chance in this Top Gear bit since it screams to a lead but then the land-based jet machine insanity known as an F1 race car steps it up and the other two are fighting not to get lapped by the closest thing we have to a teleportation device on Earth.

Seeing F1 Cars Race In Thermal Vision Is So Freaking Cool

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that racing F1 cars is pretty much insanity. The ridiculous speeds, the punishing G-forces and not to mention the beasts of a machine they call cars.

Bungee Jumping In A F1 Car Seems Like A Crazy Thing To Do

Here’s video from Top Gear showing the Stig making a 300 foot bungee jump while strapped inside a F1 car. It’s exhilarating and completely nuts but must have been so ridiculously fun to do. Sometimes, just bungee jumping or just driving an F1 car isn’t enough. You gotta do both at the same time.

Melbourne Ties Up Formula One GP For 6 More Years

Having lived in St Kilda for a couple of years, I’m not exactly the biggest fan of the Grand Prix — the crappier the engines sound, the better in my books. If you do adore cars going around quickly in circles, however, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Victorian Government has secured the race until 2020.
