Francesco Bagnaia clasped one hand on the 2022 MotoGP world championship with an assured victory in the Malaysian Grand Prix to extend his points lead to 23. Bastianini spied an opportunity and began to heap pressure onto Bagnaia for the subsequent few laps before eventually taking away the leadership at Turn 4. Bagnaia refused to lie down and take it though as he remained fixed onto the rear wheel of the Gresini pilot, taking the lead back several circulations later to re-establish himself out in front. Bezzecchi therefore claimed a strong fourth for VR46 Ducati ahead of Australian GP victor Alex Rins for Suzuki who completed the top five. Joan Mir saw a potential top five run early go downhill as he began to drop back in the latter stages, his struggle capitalised with a late crash at Turn 1 that dropped him to 19th.1 month ago Motorsport Week
With an overall record of 108 wins and eight championship-winning seasons, the Newman/Haas Racing team was once in the top-tier of Indy Car teams. Without a doubt the most famous and longest-lasting collaboration in Haas history was when he joined forces with Paul Newman to create Newman/Haas Racing in 1983. After winning five races outright, Mansell took home the PPG Indy Car World Series trophy after the penultimate race, becoming the only person in history to have won back-to-back championships in F1 and Indy car. Nine years later, after seven races and seven pole positions, upstart racer Cristiano da Matta became the 2002 Indy Car world champion. One year later, the most-awarded driver in Champ Car history, Sébastien Bourdais, started his ascendency for the Newman/Haas team.1 month ago Vintage Motorsport
Talking to Professional Adviser, advisers have shared their reactions about the new prime minister and the potential impact this change at Downing Street could have on their businesses and clients. They addressed concerns about possible plans for tax and green investments, the triple lock and economic issues. He told PA that he doubted Sunak would be "brave enough", or have "enough political capital" to attack the triple lock with an election just a couple of years away. However, as with most budgets, I suspect that this will mainly be smoke and mirrors." Perhaps pension tax relief at higher rates might be one, although this option has been mooted for years and nothing has come of it…yet."29 days ago Professional Adviser
‘Affordable EVs for Europe can come from India’: Stellantis CEO Carlos TavaresAn already profitable Stellantis India remains insulated from any slowdown due to extremely break-even levels of 40%, says the global CEO of the world’s fifth largest automaker, which is open to buying made-in-India EV components. With EVs, it is not a "technology problem" but more of "an affordability problem," says Carlos Tavares, the global CEO of Stellantis, the world's fifth largest automaker. Speaking to a select set of Indian media on Wednesday evening, Tavares said: "Thus far, Europe is unable to make affordable EVs. The export potential is going to depend on how fast Stellantis India is going to achieve its cost and quality targets. Stellantis’ Indian arm annually exports over 300,000 gearboxes to the global operation.3 days ago Autocar Professional
Logan Sargeant’s dream of becoming a fully-fledged Formula One driver came another step closer to reality after the famous Williams Racing F1 team, partnered by Acronis, announced that the American will participate in further FP1 sessions in 2022. In addition, Sargeant will also compete in the important end of season Young Driver Test at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi. I’m very grateful to be given further time in the FW44 at Mexico and Abu Dhabi. For now, however, Sargeant has another task in hand in finishing the Formula 2 season on a high. Williams Racing uses Acronis technology to add extra layers of protection to its IT infrastructure, protecting hundreds of servers and endpoint devices.1 month ago Motorsport Technology
