CAR--NASCAR-AROUND THE TRACK

FORMULA ONE:

CAR--F1-FORMULA ONE PREVIEW

For jaded Formula One fans weary of Sebastian Vettel's dominance in recent years, an overdue shake-up is coming. A switch to six-cylinder turbo engines has forced a radical redesign of the cars inside and out, with the aim of making the sport more relevant to the car industry and tempting major auto makers back to F1. While such changes tend to ultimately benefit the big teams, who have more resources to put into design and trouble-shooting, the change could see some of the major players struggle early.

CAR--F1-FERRARI'S DUO

The biggest rivalry of the Formula One season could be in the same team, with former world champions Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen racing with and against each other for Ferrari. Both have pledged to work together, although their competitive instincts may take over sooner rather than later. By Jerome Pugmire. UPCOMING: 575 words, photos.

CAR--F1-RED BULL-RICCIARDO

With new regulations and preseason testing already difficult, Red Bull has the added stress of whether Daniel Ricciardo has what it takes to drive alongside Sebastian Vettel. Although Vettel's relationship with Mark Webber was often difficult, Webber was an assured driver who guaranteed a healthy haul of points and his retirement from Formula One has left Red Bull with a void to fill.
