THE POWER OF IN-SEASON TESTING

July 29, 2018

In the past, Formula 1 teams could carry out unlimited testing, restricted only by the budgets available to physically run the car between races. But that all changed in 2008, when teams could carry out no more than 30,000km, and then a year later that mileage was halved and in-season testing banned.


GERMANY GRAND PRIX RACE REVIEW

July 22, 2018

There was a top ten finish for Toro Rosso Honda at the end of a chaotic German Grand Prix hit by rain and incidents.
