SEBASTIAN VETTEL AND MARK WEBBER GO HEAD TO HEAD AROUND THE NORDSCHLEIFE IN INFINITI ROAD CARS
Red Bull Racing drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber started their German Grand Prix weekend early this week, when they took each other on racing around the famous Nordschleife circuit in high performance Infiniti road cars.
The team mates, currently leading the Formula One World Championship, were given the keys to a 3.7 litre V6 Infiniti M37s and an Infiniti M35h -- Infiniti's most powerful car to date and the fastest accelerating production hybrid in the world. They competed for one high speed lap around the legendary 14 mile (22.8km) track demonstrating truly Inspired Performance.
Red Bull F1 Driver, Mark Webber tests hot hatches with James Cracknell.
Telegraph columnist James Cracknell teams up with Red Racing Formula One
driver Mark Webber in their quest find the best of breed among different
road cars. This time they are in search of the ideal hot hatchback. The
models on the short-list are the original Volkswagon Golf GTI, the Renault
Megane Sport, and the Ford Focus RS turbo. Watch the duo in action as they put the
'hot' finalists through their paces in tough conditions.
Sebastian Vettel driving GT5 RedbullX1 prototype at Nürburgring GP Course
Find more GT5 videos on http://gtchannel.com. In a world where modern
professional racing is restricted by regulations, the X1 is a machine born
from a fantastic "what if" dream of Gran Turismo: "What would the fastest
racing car on Earth, free of any and all regulations, look like?" And the
only way to experience it is in Gran Turismo 5. Initially the X1 Prototype
was a single-seater canopied prototype wing car with covered front wheels.
Powered by a 1500ps direct-injection V6 Twin turbo, on paper the performance would have been
spectacular, producing a top speed of 400km/h (248.6mp/h) and a maximum
lateral acceleration of 6G. But once Red Bull Racing was brought on board
to be a partner, the X1 really took off. Adrian Newey, master aerodynamic
engineer and Red Bull Racing's chief technical officer, suggested "Fan Car"
technology, a long-held dream of his, be added to the design of the X1
Prototype. A "fan car" is a vehicle having a fan mechanism which forces the
air out from underneath the car to reduce air pressure under the car's
floor. The resulting suction draws the car to the ground surface and
creates a massive amount of downforce. And because it can create downforce
regardless of the vehicle's current speed, it dramatically raises it's
cornering speed capability even in low speed corners. Thanks to the insight
of Mr. Newey, the X1 Prototype design was transformed. A large fan was
added to the rear end of the body to implement the Fan Car technology.
Plus, Newey provided additional input into the the design of the front and
rear wings and rear diffuser, dramatically refining the vehicle's
aerodynamics. As a result, the virtual X1 Prototype was able to achieve an
astonishing level of performance. Its new top speed was 450km/h
(279.6mp/h), with a maximum lateral acceleration reaching up to 8.75G,
pushing the vehicle to the very limits of what a normal human body can

F1 - 1969 Monaco GP - Race report
The entry for Monaco was much as normal although Jochen Rindt was still
recovering from breaking his nose in his crash in Barcelona and so Team
Lotus ran Richard Attwood as his replacement alongside Graham Hill. The
field was bolstered by the reappearance of Silvio Moser in an old Brabham
and Vic Elford running in an old Cooper-Maserati entered, aptly, by Antique
Automobiles. There had been considerable worry expressed since the crashes
in Barcelona about the high rear wings used on the cars and after the first
practice the CSI held a meeting and decided on an immediate ban on the
grounds of safety. The first session times were canceled and the qualifying
process started all over again. There were some gripes from the teams but
everyone got down to business and it was Jackie Stewart's Matra which
emerged on pole, ahead of Chris Amon's Ferrari. Jean-Pierre Beltoise in the
second Matra was third on the grid, ahead of Graham Hill while Jo Siffert
(Walker-Durlacher Lotus) and John Surtees (BRM) shared the third row. The
Brabhams of Jacky Ickx and Jack Brabham were on the fourth row, just ahead
of Piers Courage in Frank Williams's customer BT26.
Stewart took the lead at the start with Amon in pursuit. Beltoise was under
pressure from Hill and the Lotus driver moved to third on the third lap. By
lap 10 Stewart had a 10-second advantage. In the midfield Surtees suffered
a gearbox failure in the tunnel and was hit by Brabham. Both drivers
escaped injury. Six laps later Amon's Ferrari retired with a differential
failure and on lap 21 Beltoise's Matra suffered a driveshaft failure and
retired from third place. A lap later the leader Stewart had an identical
problem with his Matra and retired. This left Hill in the lead with a 12
second advantage over Ickx and Courage. The battle for second place
continued until the 49th lap when the Belgian retired with a rear
suspension failure, leaving Courage to finish an impressive second while
Siffert picked up third.
A hell of a ride at the Nordschleife.
Liri Farfus followed countless races closely, always hoping her husband
puts in a great result, coming home without a scratch. However, she wants
to experience a lap of the Nordschleife by herself - and joined Augusto as
a co-driver in the "Green Hell". Was it a very good idea, watch this video
and find out.

Tirendo Making of Spot: Sebastian Vettel und Uke Bosse
Sebastian Vettel hat ja schon öfter bewiesen, dass er sich vor der Kamera
ziemlich gut macht. Vor allem mit seinem Drehkollegen Uke Bosse.
Im „Making Of“ des aktuellen Winterreifenspots der Wintersaison
2014/2015 zeigen die beiden sich wieder von Ihrer sympathischen Seite. Alle
Textpatzer und Pannen, die ganze Atmosphäre, wie das Set vorbereitet wurde
und und und kann man im Making Of sehen.
Der finale Spot handelt davon, dass Sebastian Vettel mit seinem Freund Uke
Bosse eine Tour machen will. Dieser packt sein Auto deshalb mit allen
wichtigen Utensilien voll. Sebastian Vettel, der seinen Freund aber gut
kennt, will sicher gehen, dass die Reise reibungslos verläuft und halt
deshalb nach, ob Uke Bosse auch alles eingepackt hat und ob er denn auch
Winterreifen aufgezogen habe.
Erstaunlicherweise hat der Freund diesmal an alles gedacht! Doch im letzten
Moment fällt ihm ein, dass er doch etwas vergessen hat. Daraufhin rennt er
nochmal schnell in die Garage, holt einen Reifen und legt diesen Sebastian
Vettel auf den Schoß. Der Grund dafür: Die Reifen bei www.tirendo.de
seien so günstig, dass er gleich fünf Reifen gekauft hat.
