Originally a concept conceived by Gordon Murray , he convinced Ron Dennis to back the project and engaged Peter Stevens to design the exterior and interior of the car. On 31 March , the XP5 prototype with a modified rev limiter set the Guinness World Record for the world's fastest production car , reaching Only low production volume cars like the Dauer Le Mans which attained The car features numerous proprietary designs and technologies; it is lighter and has a more streamlined structure than many modern sports cars, despite having one seat more than most similar sports cars, with the driver's seat located in the centre and slightly forward of two passengers' seating positions, providing driver visibility superior to that of a conventional seating layout. It features a powerful engine and is somewhat track oriented, but not to the degree that it compromises everyday usability and comfort. It was conceived as an exercise in creating what its designers hoped would be considered the ultimate road car. Despite not having been designed as a track machine, a modified race car edition of the vehicle won several races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in , where the power and torque of the BMW engine helped it accelerate in high gears in the very wet conditions to beat purpose-built prototype race cars.
F1 News. Mercedes have revealed the new car, the W10, ahead of the F1 season as they bid to maintain their long reign as the sport's dominant power. Undefeated in a title fight since the start of F1's current turbo-hybrid era, Mercedes start the new year with one aim - becoming the first team in F1 history to win six consecutive drivers' and constructors' championship doubles. The W10 was given an immediate on-track debut , with Bottas behind the wheel of the new Silver Arrows on Wednesday morning during a 'shakedown' run at Silverstone. Exclusive: First look at Mercedes on track. Hamilton 'ready to attack' in Lewis Hamilton, the reigning drivers' champion, begins a new two-year contract at the team as he aims to become just the second driver in history to win six world titles.
Technical editor Jake Boxall-Legge is your guide for a full look at the car, describing in detail how each key element works, and what the team has tried to achieve with its latest design. Tech verdict: Alfa Romeo's 'extreme' F1 front wing explained. Formula 1. Formula 1 R. Austrian GP.
Processional races at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, on the tight confines of Melbourne's Albert Park circuit, and in the recent Spanish Grand Prix at Barcelona, highlight how difficult it is for the current, high-downforce F1 cars to follow each other at speed and race closely. The FIA is making radical aerodynamic changes for to improve overtaking, which are explained in this animation. The changes will reduce the aerodynamic wake created, allowing a car following another not to suffer from so much turbulence. These regulations followed in-depth research in collaboration with the Formula 1 teams, and were given the green light earlier this month. These changes broadly consist of a wider and simpler front wing, a tidier front brake duct assembly - removing the various winglets that presently adorn them, the exclusion of close channel brake duct aero - including blown front axles - and a wider, deeper rear wing devoid of endplate louvres. These aerodynamic tweaks accompany an increase in the fuel limit to kg - to reduce the amount of lifting and coasting drivers do in races to save fuel - and a driver and seat combined weight limit, designed to alleviate the disadvantaged faced by heavier drivers in what remain extremely heavy cars.
Appointed as head of McLaren Cars in , Murray convinced Ron Dennis to build the vehicle and played a key role in the design of the F1. It was unlike any other supercar launched up to that point. It had a race-inspired design, a three-seat configuration with the driver seat in the middle, and a comfortable ride for a vehicle of its kind. It was also the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and the first to bring high-tech and expensive materials such as titanium, magnesium, Kevlar, and gold under the same roof. Its record endured from until , when Bugatti unleashed the ludicrous Veyron.
