Racing Point Breach Sporting Regulations

In a dramatic Friday at the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, Racing Point were found to have breached the sporting regulations with their copycat brake ducts. Mercedes were found to have been the principle designers of those parts which lead to a points deduction and hefty fine. So why were rival teams left pondering their own appeal of the upheld appeal? And why is a car which has been deemed to be in breach of the regulations allowed to race for the rest of the season with the same parts? Jake Boxall-Legge and Jonathan Noble have the answers!

Why Racing Has A Purpose with Susie Wolff, Alejandro Agag and more

Our sport has a unique ability to reach, unite and empower millions of people globally, and its return is being eagerly awaited worldwide. The world’s top sporting events are some of the world’s most watched, bringing enormous visibility. Athletes and racing drivers like Lewis Hamilton are powerful role models that inspire others and lead by example. The events of recent weeks and the support for Black Lives Matter has shown that motorsport has an opportunity to bring the world together and to raise public awareness of societal issues and solutions. We had already seen signs before the pandemic crisis that sponsors and manufacturers were looking for sport to demonstrate a sense of purpose and it is increasingly clear that in the post Covid world, sport risks looking irrelevant if it does not have a higher purpose than just entertainment.In the FIA eSport Conference MSN president James Allen tackled this subject with a panel featuring Formula E founder and Chairman Alejandro Agag, Susie Wolff, who is team principal of Rokit Venturi Formula E team and the founder of the Dare to be Different initiative to bring more females into the sport; Andrea Adamo team principal of Hyundai motorsport, Bob Bell former CTO of Renault and Mercedes F1 teams and founder of Grid4Good.org and Yath Gangakumaran, Director of Strategy and Business Development, F1

Red Bull just revealed their Formula 1 car for 2020, the RB16, and immediately became the first team to turn a wheel on track as they headed for a filming day at Silverstone with Max Verstappen. Jake Boxall-Legge runs his eye over the technical aspects of a car which goes into the second season powered by a Honda engine. Could this be the year the former World Champions take the title? They will have waited seven years to climb back to the top. Recent years during the V6 hybrid era have seen Red Bull almost limp into a season but Team Principal Christian Horner says there is a new philosophy in Milton Keynes to ensure they are on the pace from Australia. JBL and Alex talk about how this could be the best chance Red Bull have because they're evolving the car from a successful 2019 season, with three wins and a competitive package. As they are the first team to run a 2020 car does this show signs of confidence? Also Jonanthan Noble and Codders headed to Paris for the launch of the Renault R.S.20...without a car.
