After a lackluster first season and a technically troubled start to the second, the Trulli team is calling it quits and leaving the FIA Formula E Championship - making room on the grid for Jaguar's arrival next year.
Given its experience developing its own electric racing prototype, Drayson Racing seemed like a shoe-in to field its own team in the inaugural Formula E championship. In fact, it was one of the first teams to sign on and even talked about designing its own car for the
As bad as The Phantom Menace was, you can't say that the podrace scene didn't have some cool sounds. If you liked the way that Ben Quadinaros or Gasgano sounded as they roared past the digital camera on screen, you might like to know that the upcoming Formula E race series is apparently an audio sibling.
Perspective is everything. Take, for example, the inaugural FIA Formula E championship. To us it's notable as the first global electric racing series. But to racing drivers, it presents a new opportunity. Because while most single-seater racing series occupy one rung or another on the motorsport racing ladder, Formula E is developing a clout all its own. A pioneering one that is apparently very attractive to emerging talents and old hands al
This is really, really cool. In order to promote its new IS Hybrid, Lexus borrowed an airplane hangar, a former Formula One driver and what we imagine was some serious technological knowhow to create one of the most interesting games we've ever seen. It's called Trace Your Road.

But typically once the cars are launched, the contracts are signed and that's that. So when Caterham beat its rivals to the punch by unveiling its new car, we figured we'd heard the last of the driv
With the 2010 World Championship consigned to the history books, the Formula One grid is gearing up for next season. Sixteen out of twenty-four seats have already been spoken for as Lotus and Williams have each confirmed both their drivers.
The pieces to the puzzle that is the upcoming Formula One season are coming together bit by bit. In the latest development, the upstart Lotus F1 Racing team has announced the signing of two veteran drivers: Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.
Up until a few years ago, seeing a driver switch from one motorsport discipline to another was practically unheard of. A Formula One driver might compete at Le Mans, sure, but with few exceptions, that was about the extent of it. Now we've got drivers interested in switching between F1, rallying and even motorbikes in a big game of musical chairs. Once unfathomable, however, the biggest trend is a growing cadre of F1 drivers migrating to NASCAR.
