Grosjean drives first IndyCar test

Ocon driving the Alpine colours for the first time

Esteban Ocon got behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car for the first time on Monday, during a test at Paul Ricard. The old R.S.18 was used for the test, but dressed in the new Alpine colours. Ocon was happy with his test kilometres and can't wait for the start of the season.

Footage of new Alfa Romeo leaked by sponsor

AlphaTauri announces time of presentation

AlphaTauri has once again hinted at their car presentation on Friday and now a time has been revealed when the car will be presented. The new AlphaTauri will be presented at 9am CET. A big show like last year seems not to be expected.

Magnussen on cloud nine despite leaving F1

For Kevin Magnussen, the world cannot go wrong for the time being. In January, his daughter Laura was born and on Wednesday morning, he posted an update about her.
