Renault’s self-driving RS 2027 F1 concept

At the Shanghai Motor Show, the car company unveiled its RS 2027 vision for Formula 1 with a greater focus on drivers, safety and hybrid technology. At the heart of this is Renault’s “more spectacular, more electric” RS 2027 F1 concept. Renault look to reimagine the future of F1 racing with the RS 2027 Vision Concept. Unveiled earlier this year at the Shanghai Motor Show, the technological mockup explores the notion of closed cockpits, likely taking into consideration both aesthetics and safety factors. Fashioned from 3D-printed recycled material, the cockpit design will be completely transparent, as will be the driver helmut — offering absolute visibility while tearing up the blacktop. Fitted with a transparent cockpit, active LED lighting in the wheels and moving aerodynamic parts such as the car’s active wings, Renault wants to make the sport a more “human-centric championship”.

The Mercedes-AMG ‘Project One’ hypercar release update

AMG’s 50th birthday celebrations will culminate in the reveal of the F1-engined Project One hypercar at the Frankfurt motor show in September. Daimler CEO Dr Zetsche told TopGear.com: “The hypercar will be the missing link legitimising the integration of AMG with the Formula One team.

We have relatively strong indications that this could be an achievable target.” Continue Reading
