If you have ever been to a Formula 1 race you will know that they are fast (and loud). They navigate miles of track and tens of corners all under a minute or two.

All these observations lead you to ask: How Fast Do Formula 1 Cars Go?

In 2012, the race to create the fastest sailboat (or fastest sail-powered watercraft) was on.

The possible takeover of Sauber-Alfa Romeo by Andretti Autosport has been on the agenda for a couple of weeks now. There were even rumours that a deal will be made this weekend in the United States. Former Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone however is very sceptical about the possible take-over.
Max Verstappen is enamored with the NTT IndyCar Series – its highly competitive races, its diversely appealing tracks and its “proper race car.”.

Gone were the manufacturers that were integral to the running of the series itself - and with them the much-loved, purpose-built Class One cars that rivalled prototype racers in terms of performance.

Kevin Magnussen previously confirmed he would depart the team to join Peugeot’s FIA WEC Hypercar effort.
