Not going to lie here, that CT03 is one ugly looking car from the front.

Doesn't look as good without the yellow on the nose.

It's a shame they have the stepped nose (and they're so in favour of it), since I would love to see what it'd look like with the vanity panel in place. Probably 1000x nicer, since the livery is so much better.

In general, the liveries have been much nicer this season. Red Bull are just a case of WTF.

IMO the FIA should have made the "vanity panels" mandatory.

Marussia signs Luiz Razia for second 2013 Formula 1 seat

Luiz Razia has secured the Marussia Formula 1 seat left vacant by Timo Glock's pre-season departure from the team.

Brazilian 23-year-old Razia joins fellow GP2 graduate Max Chilton in an all-rookie line-up at the squad.

Razia will drive the new Marussia in Wednesday's Jerez test session, although the team will start the day late following Chilton's crash due to suspension failure on Tuesday.

"The past two seasons in GP2 have been all about proving that I have what it takes and that I'm ready," said Razia.

Well I'm looking forward to it,

I'd like to see how Romain Grosjean, Pastor Maldonado and Charles Pic will fair this year.

Yeah - really good day out. The Force India and Caterham cars sound awful off the throttle - backfiring quite badly. The smoothest car seemed to be the McLaren (which looked stunning) - driven that day by Perez.

Hamilton's Merc looked ok, but as I said earlier, seemed to splutter out of the pits during one of the test stops - I really thought that was the end of his practice.

We managed to pickup some VIP tickets so were able to wander freely throughout the track. We stood for a long while at turn 1 where the cars were slowing down after the start/finish straight for the 90-degree right hander. They were literally metres away from us. I took my father up to see it as he hasn't seen it before. He loved the McLaren - the livery, sound and speed.

Just seen some of the times posted in Barcelona - McLaren quickest so far .. looks good. Maybe Hamilton jumped ship too early .. they do seem to have a WDC winning car on their hands.

Even though the times tell something, they don't tell the whole story. The biggest give-away will be in Melbourne in a few weeks time.

The back of that Williams is so short, it's mental. Looking forward to seeing the pace from it this season, and seeing if they can improve over last year. If Maldonado is more reliable and drives more like his second half of 2012, he'll do well.

They've just stopped for lunch in Barcelona. Vettel fastest on 1'23.046.

It is going to be exciting come Melbourne. Testing is ok to see the new cars but apart from that, as we've learnt from past years. It doesn't really show the pace of a car. I think the past two years Ferrari looked good and then when it got down to actual racing, it was pants.

I hope Mercedes give Hamilton a decent car, one he can work with. It will be so depressing if we have to watch a championship where Hamilton looks average all the time. I suppose though if he is in the mid-field, we'll see some good overtakes.

it was in 2010 and especially 2011 when they looked good, in 2012 testing they looked horrible and it was obvious for everyone.

      AWS and Formula 1 announce six new racing performance stats
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via Formula 1 With less than two weeks to go for the resumption of the 2020 season, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Formula 1 have announced six new performance statistics that will help fans analyze the flood of real-time data during races. This will help them gauge the performance of the cars on track and predict race outcomes. These statistics will use a variety of AWS offerings, including Amazon Kinesis, AWS Lambda, and Amazon SageMaker.

      To start off, on July 3-5, at the RedBull Ring in Austria, the debutant 'Car Performance Scores' will display an individual car’s performance using four metrics: Low-Speed Cornering, High-Speed Cornering, Straight Line, and Car Handling⁠. These are vital indicators of a car's race performance and will allow fans to compare different F1 cars on the track.

      The Car Performance Score stats are in addition to the five other metrics that will debut this season. Complete details on those are as follows:

      Vis-à-vis the initiative, Rob Smedley, the Chief Engineer of Formula 1, stated that “We’re excited to be expanding this successful relationship to bring even more insights to life, allowing fans to go deeper into the many ways that drivers and racing teams work together to affect success.” While Mike Clayville, Vice President of Worldwide Commercial Sales at AWS remarked that “This year, we’re thrilled to extend the power of F1 data in the cloud and unlock new insights that help fans understand more of F1’s rich complexity.”

      HTC blunder confirms specifications and pricing of its U12 Plus before event
      by Paul Hill



      HTC is set to unveil its HTC U12 at an event tomorrow, there’s a good chance it will officially unveil the HTC U12 Plus too. Unfortunately for HTC, its engineers appear to have left a test webpage for the HTC U12 Plus open for the public to see. The mistake, which was quickly rectified, now means that specifications and pricing of the upcoming premium handset were leaked ahead of the official reveal.

      The premium device will be available in China with a price tag of 5,888 yuan, roughly $920. At least one of the options for the device will include 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. HTC has decided to opt out of using an OLED screen and has instead gone with a 6-inch WQHD+ (1440 x 2880) Super LCD6. The U12 Plus appears to come in a variety of colours including maroon, black, and navy blue.

      The device will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and has a slot to add a microSD card up to 2TB. The U12 Plus is equipped with Boomsound speakers and is classified as IP68-rated water and dust resistance giving it some innate protection against the elements. Lastly, it is powered by a 3,500mAh battery which should see it last for about a day but we won’t know for certain until it gets into people’s hands.

      Let us know, are you excited for HTC’s upcoming devices?

      HTC officially unveils the squeezable semi-translucent U11+
      by Dreyer Smit

      Without making too much of a fuss, HTC has officially taken the veil off of the not-so-secret U11+, a larger sibling to the flagship the company launched earlier this year. The device brings along with it the same elegant design, incorporates an edge-to-edge display, and a squeezable frame that one can find on devices like the Google Pixel 2.



      Specification-wise, the device isn't a far cry from what has been leaked earlier, with it sporting the usual flagship specifications. The U11+ is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, with it coming with two flavors in relation to its storage and RAM configurations; namely a 4GB RAM with 64GB storage option, and a 6GB RAM with 128GB storage onboard. The display follows the trend set by devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8, with it being a 6-inch QHD+ DCI-P3 compliant panel that supports HDR10.

      Size wise it's a little taller than the U11, by 4.5mm to be exact, which makes way for the 3930 mAh battery, that should help power the display through the average workday. Beyond that, the device does not feature a 3.5mm headphone jack as is the "norm" with flagship devices these days, however, it does come with HTC USonic noise-canceling USB-C headphones in the box. As for the front-facing speakers, these are powered by BoomSound and are reportedly 30% louder than their counterparts on the slightly smaller U11.

      As for the camera, the device sports a 12M sensor with a f/1.7 aperture with phase detect autofocus, optical image stabilization, and a dual-LED flash. On the flip side, the front-facing camera is powered by an 8M shooter with a f/2.0 aperture, which should make for some good looking selfies.

      Full specifications for the device are:

      As for the strange coil visible through the translucent glass, the device, unfortunately, does not support wireless charging as it would suggest. HTC has not yet updated its official site or noted in its mailed PR statement in which markets the U11+ will be available; however, according to The Verge who had some hands-on time with it, the U11+ will be available to buy unlocked, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, for £699 from November 20th in the UK, and in Europe, where the device will cost €799. We will keep you updated once more information is made available.

      For more images of the device, check out the gallery below.
