Chess

Chess has a certain mystique around it. The game has been a favourite of philosophers, generals and kings throughout history.

2021 Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix highlights

Introduction

 

 2021 Spanish Grand Prix was an incredible, tense race-long battle between Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton triumphed for his sixth Spanish Grand Prix win. The reigning world champion brilliantly executed a two-stop strategy to claim his third win in four races this season, as Verstappen finished ahead of the second Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas.

Verstappen led the majority of the race after brilliantly snatching the lead from Hamilton into Turn 1 at the start, with Red Bull then committing to a one-stop strategy around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, as Hamilton opted for two.

But with six laps to go, Hamilton used the superior performance of his newer tyres to pass the Dutchman into Turn 1 and check out for his 98th victory, and fifth straight win at the circuit – Verstappen ultimately deciding to pit for softs once Hamilton was past and go for … Read the rest

Would anyone watch a driverless F1 race?

Formula 1 has always been a sport at the forefront of technology and innovation. In fact, few other sports or industries spend as much of their annual budget on technical development. However, new technology in the sport has often sparked controversy.

The battle to retain the essence of the sport while pushing the boundaries of what is technically possible is an ongoing one. Every season, there seems to be a debate about where the sport is heading and whether new technology and rule changes are enhancing or impairing it.

The Growth of Artificial Intelligence in F1

The question always seems to be: Where do we draw the line with technology? And that examination is likely to be tested to the limit by artificial intelligence. AI has already been of great benefit to motor racing. Top F1 teams already using machine learning and AI-powered analytics systems to make on-track strategy calls … Read the rest
