    2014 Belgian Grand Prix

    Do you genuinely believe that stance? A German owned team casting aside their German driver to satisfy the British public? Of course, I do think that the management has been somewhat naive for different reasons.

    2014 Belgian Grand Prix

    The team did admit that they called it incorrectly though in the end in that case. That aside, hitting your team-mate is on a whole new level.

    2014 FIFA World Cup - Brazil

    I think Belgiums quality stood out this game. Equally the athleticism and work ethic of the US team was very impressive and a lot of teams could learn a great deal from performances like that.

    Say hello to the Google autonomous car

    I'll move to California if they need a spare Automotive engineer... :P Probably not your biggest concern when you have a top speed of 25mph.

    Enzo successor spotted

    Science is perfectly capable of working in reality, its people who don't know what they are doing and misapplying the mechanics which leads to errors results. It's a garbage in garbage out process.

    Enzo successor spotted

    Regenerative braking, hybrid vehicles use the braking phase to "recycle" the lost energy of braking and re-store it in the battery.

    2016 Audi R8

    It's pretty pointless trying to work out what a camo'd prototype looks like, they rarely look anything like the production car, which is kind of the point. Yet everytime we see one, scores of people rush in and say it looks horrible...

    Jaguar X-Type replacement in 2015?

    Interesting to hear that you were at Gaydon, that is the site I predominantly work at. If I had known, I could have said hello. Were you there as part of your Automotive Degree, or on a personal tour? The prototype of this vehicle looks good, it appears to be much smaller than the XF yet it...

    Mercedes W05 V6 Engine

    The monster engines of old were allowed to use toluene based fuel. That is what allowed the massive power levels.

    But unless I am mistaken, Bugatti don't lie about their vehicles performance in this way.

    2011 Hennessey Venom GT

    His point is that its lucky that the people who rave about Hennessey vehicles probably can't afford them, thus protecting them from purchasing upgrades that lack quality and significantly under deliver on what was marketed to them. Now I am not suggesting that other Auto companies marketing...

    Jaguar F-Type. Damn.

    Unfortunately I doubt they will be in the dealers for a while here either, the convertible will have to do for now.
