The shape and slope of the Ferrari SF15-T nose reminds me of that of their 1990 challenger:

Wow... that Williams Sauber car is so ugly colour-wise that I forgot to look at how ugly the nose is. That's a disaster from start to finish.

Really? I love the Martini White, Blue and Red, in fact I would actually go as far as saying its the best looking livery so far. Even last year, I'd say it was perhaps the best looking car on the grid.

Ugh, my brain farted. The blue on the Sauber just made my brain autopilot into saying it was a Williams >_<

 

The Sauber is one ugly machine, the Williams car looks very nice again (except the nose).

I thought you might have been talking about the Sauber but didn't want to assume :)

Ron Dennis says there is no chance Fernando Alonso could join Mercedes next year as he is locked in to a long-term deal at McLaren.

Mercedes boss Toto Wolff recently named Alonso as the team's top priority for 2016 if reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton does not extend his current deal. Alonso has just arrived back at Woking after completing a remarkable return to the team he left after just one acrimonious season in 2007.

The Spaniard opted out of his Ferrari contract last year in order to join McLaren but team CEO Dennis says there is no chance he could do the same this year.

Interesting - I never knew Mclaren did such things, I don't think I've seen how long a "long term deal" is though.

I've always found the Torro Rosso's to never look any different. I know there will be differences, but it just never seems it at first glance.

      Electronic Arts officially confirms Codemasters acquisition
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Codemasters, the British video games company known for its wide range of racing titles, is now a part of Electronic Arts. The acquisition has been in the works for some time now, and today, EA officially confirmed the move on a blog post that welcomed the racing giant into the fold.

      The acquisition has been an interesting journey to keep an eye on. Take-Two Interactive was originally in talks to purchase Codemasters with a deal that involved almost a billion dollars. However, EA threw a wrench into the takeover talks by making a "knockout bid" worth $1.2 billion, which Codemasters went on to accept in December.

      "This is the beginning of an exciting new era for racing games and content as we bring together the talented teams at Electronic Arts and Codemasters," said Electronic Arts CEO Andrew Wilson in a statement. "Racing fandom continues to grow worldwide, and the franchises in our combined portfolio will enable us to create innovative new experiences and bring more players into the excitement of cars and motorsport. Our teams will be a global powerhouse in racing entertainment, with amazing games for players on every platform, and we can’t wait to get started."

      EA's racing portfolio already includes popular franchises like Need for Speed and Burnout. Now with Codemasters on its side, that list is increasing to include Dirt, GRID, Formula 1, and Project CARS, among other series that expand the publisher's scope beyond just arcade racers while also enabling it to have multiple racing game launches a year.

      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.”

      Chinese Grand Prix 2017 is next in the F1 calendar. With Vettel winning the first race of the season, we are expecting a good competition between Ferrari and Mercedes. Will Vettel take the lead or Hamilton pull off something unexpected?

      Here's the schedule.
