Motorsport Jobs: What's it like to work in Formula 1? - Motorsport.com, Edition: Global

Formula 1 is extremely competitive off-track as well as on it, so trying to find a job in such a challenging and demanding industry will always be a struggle.

It may look out of reach for the vast majority, but with hard work, passion and a slice of luck anybody can achieve the ultimate goal of a Formula 1 job.

But what is it actually like to work in F1? Adam Arbon spoke to an aerodynamicist about life away from the race track.

How did you get into Formula 1?

During my PhD, I contacted a friend of mine who was working for a team back then, asking whether they did any kind of internships for students. She asked for my CV and she forwarded it to the head of aerodynamics.

Then I had an interview with him and a few months later I started my non-paid summer internship in the aero department. Entering F1 is the most difficult step. After that things can get a bit easier especially if you...

Formula 1 tweaks grid penalty system for 2018 - Motorsport.com - Motorsport.com, Edition: Global

Formula 1’s grid penalty system will be tweaked for next season, the FIA has announced, in a bid to make things less confusing for fans.

There has been growing unease about the extent of grid penalties this year, with F1 motorsport director Ross Brawn claiming recently that they were making a ‘farce’ of the sport. 

The situation has become even more tense because of concerns that penalties could increase next year because F1 is going down to three engines for the season.

Following discussion at the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council on Wednesday, a new structure was announced that should get rid of the headaches fans have faced in trying to work out final grids when a host of penalties have been handed out.

From now on, any driver that earns a 15-place grid penalty - which is the equivalent of taking two extra new elements for the first time - will have to start from the back of the...

Formula 1: Max Verstappen's maturity is earning him millions - BBC Sport

Max Verstappen's new Red Bull contract is said by those in the know to make him the third best paid driver in Formula 1 behind Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel from next year.

The team will not reveal the exact amount but, by process of elimination, the Dutchman's salary for the next three years will be between £18-26m. Not bad for a 20-year-old who will be starting only his fourth full season in F1.

But the thing is, Verstappen is worth it.

Where exactly he stands in the hierarchy of best drivers in the sport is a matter for debate. But it's impossible to argue after this season that he is not in the discussion with Hamilton, Vettel, his Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo and McLaren's Fernando Alonso.

Red Bull have clearly come to the same conclusion. Verstappen's contract already ran to 2019. But when they believed Mercedes were sniffing around in...

“The FIA Hall of Fame has been created to highlight the values that run through motorsport and the champions who have been and who still are the exemplars of the FIA’s values of commitment, integrity, respect and sportsmanship,” said FIA President Jean Todt.

The inaugural ceremony, held in the library of the ACF, where F1’s regulations were first drafted in the 1940s, first inducted the 17 champions with single titles to their name, starting with Formula One’s first champion, 1950 winner Giuseppe...

Formula 1 overtaking slumped by half in 2017 - Motorsport.com - Motorsport.com, Edition: Global

Formula 1 overtaking slumped by nearly half this year to be the worst ever during the DRS era, as fears were realised that the new wider and faster cars would make passing more difficult.

Pirelli released analysis data from the 2017 campaign on Monday and it revealed that the number of overtaking moves it registered over the 20-race season was down to 435.

This is a 49 percent drop on the mammoth 866 passes that were recorded in 2016, when there was one more race.

The 2016 figure was the highest since records began in the early 1980s, while this season's 435 is the lowest since the 211 passes that took place in 2009, which was before DRS was introduced to help overtaking.

This year's crazy Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku accounted for the most overtaking moves in one race, with 42 in total.

At the other end of the spectrum was the Russian Grand Prix in Sochi, where just one pass was...
