  1. Binotto says Ferrari’s US Grand Prix showing proved they've made ‘big step forwards’ with power unit After implementing a significant engine upgrade for Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc earlier this season, Ferrari clinched a double points-finish at the Circuit of The Americas – which team boss Mattia Binotto says is proof the Scuderia’s new powerplant is paying dividends. Ferrari produced a midfield-topping display on Sunday as Leclerc finished fourth – more than 20 seconds ahead of McLaren’s fifth-place Daniel Ricciardo – and Sainz settled for seventh after a slow second pit
  2. Vasseur says Alfa Romeo ‘not in a rush’ to name Bottas team mate for 2022 With nine-time Grand Prix winner Bottas joining Alfa Romeo next season, the question still remains as to who they will choose to pair him with – whether that be current driver Antonio Giovinazzi, or hotly-tipped outsiders such as Alpine-backed youngsters Guanyu Zhou and Oscar Piastri. Veteran racer Kimi Raikkonen’s departure from the sport at the end of the season paved the way for a re-jig at Alfa Romeo, with Bottas signed on a multi-year deal from Mercedes. But asked ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix
  3. Norris explains 'scary' start in Austin as he battled with Ricciardo and Ferrari pair on Lap 1 Lando Norris got his frights in well before Halloween as the McLaren driver said he was “so scared” at the beginning of the United States Grand Prix while battling his team mate Daniel Ricciardo and Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz. Down the long back straight towards the sharp Turn 12, there was a pack of midfielders threatening to get caught in a melee: Norris, Sainz, and Ricciardo – with Charles Leclerc leading them. And it was Norris who made a break for it in an attempt to jump up to P5 on
  4. Vettel relishes battle with Russell at COTA as he fights his way up from P18 to the points Sebastian Vettel’s climb through the field to score points in Austin was due to the tough conditions playing into Aston Martin’s hands, but also featured a fight against one of his favourite rivals… Aston Martin took a new power unit on Vettel's car for the race at Circuit of the Americas, ensuring he knew he would start at the back of the grid. Another driver doing the same was George Russell, and as the pair attempted to fight back into the points, Vettel went round the outside of the W
  5. Why Verstappen’s Austin win was such a seminal race for Red Bull's title contender The US Grand Prix weekend was a display of near perfection from both of the championship protagonists throughout qualifying and the race, but with Red Bull managing to unlock a little more pace in Austin, it was Max Verstappen who edged out Lewis Hamilton to take a crucial victory. Verstappen has been mightily impressive for a few seasons now, but unlike before, this season he has had to deal with the monumental pressure of a championship challenge, and not just any title fight, one against a dri
  6. PS - Go MAX VERSTAPPEN! I really don't like Lewis Hamilton, never have.
  7. The current way it has been presented of late is deplorable. Bring back pit stops (Won't ever happen), bring back grid girls to start. I can't wait for Albert Park Grand prix again, it's my local. Oh... and also stop having all these posers at the races who don't have any interest in Formula 1 but just want to be seen on the grid walk and snub great people like Martin Brundle. F**l you Serena Williams and who the hell is Winnie!? (I don't care who she is). F1 is a shadow of it's former self and I am interested in seeing how next season will fare but won't hold my hopes up.
  8. ORPHAN BARREL COPPER TONGUE BOURBON After nearly a decade and a string of premium whiskey releases, the Orphan Barrel brand is back with one of its best offerings to date. The new release is a blend of two separate 16-year-old bourbons that creates a balanced, complex dram. Named Copper Tongue after the copperhead snakes that reside near the Dickel distillery where the bourbon was crafted, it's bottled in the brand's signature rectangular-shaped glass bottles at cask strength — but remains approachable at just 89.8 proof.
  9. BODMIN JAIL HOTEL Built in 1779, the Bodmin Jail housed petty criminals until it closed in the 1920s. Now, its former cells serve as luxury suites for Cornwall's latest hotel. The conversion comes after a six-year, multi-million dollar restoration, transforming the derelict ruins into inviting communal spaces and 70 guest rooms. Cells were combined to create spacious suites that include king-size beds, free-standing soaking tubs, and walk-in showers, while the onsite chapel is now the main bar and restaurant. Although most of the functions have changed, the property maintains its hi

  11. 1996 ALFA ROMEO 155 V6 TI ITC Alfa Romeo dominated touring car racing in Europe from 1992 to 1996 with its 155 sedans. Knocking cars like the formidable Mercedes 190E out of the top spot, the 155 would see constant updates that kept it at the forefront of competition across the Continent, from Germany to Spain to England. This 155 V6 TI ITC is the ultimate evolution of the 155, sharing as much with Formula One cars of the era as its road-going namesake. Tubular front and rear subframes carry F1-style pushrod-actuated suspension, along with a paddle-shift transmission and highly-deve
  12. FILSON ROLL TOP DRY TOTE The simple design of Filson's roll-top tote belies its effectiveness. It's made from TPU-coated 840D nylon that's both durable and lightweight, and when rolled three times and cinched with the side buckles, offers waterproof protection for the load inside. RF-welded seams provide long-term durability, and are joined in the build by 2"-wide webbing handles with neoprene grips, Molle webbing and D-rings for attaching gear that doesn't need the waterproof protection of the interior, and an adjustable, removable padded shoulder strap for hands-free carry. $185 U

The sequel to 2019's John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum will see Yen portraying an old friend to Keanu Reeves' titular assassin John Wick, who, according to Deadline, "shares his same history and many of the same enemies."
