Sebastian Vettel says the tragic passing of Anthoine Hubert at Spa-Francorchamps last weekend must act as a sign to all motorsport to continue pushing for safety improvements in all areas regardless of being considered “too safe and boring” compared to previous eras of racing. F1 and the wider motorsport community is still mourning the death of Hubert who succumbed to his injuries sustained in a crash on Lap 2 of the Formula 2 Feature Race at Spa-Francorchamps. Juan Manuel Correa also sustained serious injuries in the accident including two leg fractures and is in specialist...

The motorsport world was shocked during the Belgium Grand Prix weekend after Anthoine Hubert passed away after a crash during Saturday's Formula 2 race. Thankfully, safety innovations and improvements have been made over the last 50 years so that we rarely see a shocking event like that. Sir Jackie Stewart remembers when the sad news was all too common.  Stewart had experienced 57 driver deaths during his career, the last being his teammate at Tyrrell, François Cevert. The 80-year-old looks back to his own era 50 years ago when driver deaths were common. He says the current crop of...

Ferrari Formula 1 boss Mattia Binotto believes his team's fine for Charles Leclerc's unsafe release at Hockenheim was the "proper" punishment, despite the FIA's acceptance harsher deterrents are required. Leclerc was released into the path of Romain Grosjean during the first round of pitstops in the German Grand Prix, and Ferrari was hit with a €5000 fine instead of a normal time penalty. That has been met with criticism and concern, with Red Bull driver Max Verstappen labelling it "completely wrong" ahead of this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix. As a result, the FIA has agreed...

Last year's Iowa winner James Hinchcliffe says low sun in this weekend's IndyCar race at the oval could prove "dangerous," and that he is "disappointed" with the start time. Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver Hinchcliffe - who is chasing a third win at the 0.894-mile oval - said the race will be more like dusk with its 6.15pm local start time. The race started more than two and a half hours earlier last year. "To call it a night race may be a little bit generous," said Hinchcliffe, who lies ninth in the IndyCar standings. "I think it's going to be a dusk race. "I think there's...

During the Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix weekend (12 – 14 July 2019) Silverstone will welcome over 375,000 visitors to the venue, a crowd size not seen at the circuit since 1992.

Karsyn Elledge was shaken up but appeared uninjured following a frightening wreck during a USAC Racing midget car event Tuesday night at Red Dirt Raceway in Oklahoma. Elledge, driving the No. 1, began to tumble down the track entering Turn 3 and flipped high enough to careen over the Turn 3 wall and crash onto the ground outside the track, near the woods. Elledge climbed out of her car under her own power and was seen talking to medical personnel. Karsyn’s mom, Kelley Earnhardt Miller, tweeted that her daughter was OK — and mom was, too, after watching the incident on TV..@KarsynElledge3...

An investigation by the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb’s race director and race safety team found that Carlin Dunne died Sunday after he “highsided coming into the last turn before the finish line,” race officials said Tuesday. Dunne’s 2019 Ducati Streetfighter V4 Prototype was inspected, and there’s no evidence of a mechanical failure, a news release says. “After reviewing footage from the incident,” investigators determined that Dunne had highsided, which happens when the back tire loses control and regains it violently, usually throwing the rider from the motorcycle. A highside...
