F1 set for pitstop tweak to combat unsafe releases

  F1 set for pitstop tweak to combat unsafe releases Formula 1 is set to alter pitstop procedures after the spate of unsafe releases this season has exposed a weakness in some teams’ systems. An unsafe release from McLaren in practice for the Chinese Grand Prix was the fifth such problem in three grand prix weekends and came a week after a Ferrari pit crew member suffered a broken leg in Bahrain.The unsafe releases have occurred despite all 10 teams employing a semi-automated system that is supposed to stop drivers being given the green light to leave their pit box before the pitstop is complete.

For those wishing for the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta to have more of a kick, the 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast has come to life.

The 2018 Ferrari 812 Superfast packs a powerful 6.5-liter V-12 engine. Although relatively torqueless at 530 lb-ft, the 812 Superfast revs out to 9,000 rpm and makes 789 hp. The Superfast is a firm ride and has sharp inputs with hyper sensitive steering.

The Superfast drives 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and runs the quarter-mile in 10.4 seconds. These numbers make the 812 Superfast one of the top five quickest rear-wheel-drive cars Motor Trend has tested and by far the quickest front-engine, rear-drive car. The Superfast's quarter-mile time beats competitors such as the Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren P1. Unlike its supercar competitors, it's purely naturally aspirated.

Why Raikkonen is Ferrari's real benchmark in 2018

  Why Raikkonen is Ferrari's real benchmark in 2018 Sebastian Vettel has won two of the first three races of the Formula 1 season, but his teammate Kimi Raikkonen is the real benchmark of Ferrari's strength at the start of 2018. As a four-time world champion who is younger and has considerably better recent form, it is no surprise to see Vettel being an opportunist on Mercedes' bad days and the benchmark on Ferrari's good ones.However, Raikkonen's rise from distant number two to consistent frontrunner at the start of this year is much more at odds with his recent history.

In our First Test we argued, "If there's never another new naturally aspirated V-12 developed—and the possibility becomes more likely every day—this will be the greatest swan song ever sung." We also wrote, "It makes you want to pass other cars, not to show off but to share this aural perfection with them. It's classic V-12 F1 car in the tunnel at Monaco good."

The Mid-Engine Ferrari Is Now 50 Years Old .
In 1968, a legend hit the road for the first time—the Dino 206 GT.Looking at the Dino today gives us a good reminder of how far the mid-engine Ferrari has come in the last 50 years. Well, 51 years, sort of—the Dino 206 GT debuted in 1967, but it didn't hit the road until 1968. Ferrari admits that it probably should've celebrated the 50th anniversary last year, but it had too much going on heralding the 70th anniversary of the brand. But that's besides the point.
