Lewis Hamilton Wants The F1 Helmet Of The Future To Have A HUD

If you’re in a F1 car racing around a track, there’s a lot of information to interpret — whether it’s something you can see on the tarmac in front of you, or raw data coming from dozens of onboard sensors and computers.

Electric Formula E Racer Tested By F1 Great Jarno Trulli

Jarno Trulli is one of the all-time greats of Formula One racing. With 256 Grand Prix starts under his belt, he’s up there with Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello — he knows more than a little bit about how to drive a fast car quickly. Like most F1 champions, he’s a jack of all trades, with history in karts and Formula 3 as well.
