Many happy returns?

It was one of the great partnerships in F1 history – but they say you should never go back. Will the reunion of McLaren and Honda spell triumph or trouble?

How are you on vital statistics? Check these out: 80-44-53-30-4-4. Any idea who we’re talking about?

McLaren and Honda would have been an educated guess, and it would have been correct. Between 1988 and 1992 those two great names raced together in F1. They contested 80 Grands Prix, won 44 of them, took pole position 53 times and set 30 fastest race laps.

Courtney named V8 Ambassador for 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation today announced V8 Supercars driver James Courtney as the V8 Ambassador for the 2015 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Courtney, who is a former Formula One test driver for Jaguar, has raced against some of the sport's biggest names including Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher.

The Holden Racing Team driver has enjoyed a steady rise in the sport since his 2005 debut, with Courtney's greatest achievement coming in 2010 when he was crowned V8 Supercars Champion in a tense finale in Sydney.

Ricciardo smashes Hamilton’s Top Gear lap record

Australian Formula One ace Daniel Ricciardo has enjoyed the prefect warm up for the new season, smashing Lewis Hamilton’s Top Gear lap record in the reasonably priced car.

Ricciardo is the latest F1 driver to be invited onto the top rating show to take part in the ‘Star in a Reasonably Priced Car’ challenge.

The 25 year-old dually beat Hamilton’s existing record by seven tenths of a second, setting a 1m42.1s lap. Fellow Australian Mark Webber is third on the leaderboard.
