Hulkenberg: ‘New cars are not necessarily slower than previous generation’ – GPblog

Nico Hulkenberg has shone his light on the new car that will be introduced in 2022. The German thinks that with the new cars, the driver’s talent is going to be more important than it was in previous years.

New cars not necessarily slower

“From my initial experience however, the new cars are pretty damn fast and not necessarily slower than the last generation,” Hulkenberg reveals. The former Renault driver has already been able to try the new car in the simulator and reveals that the driving experience has not changed much either.

Hulkenberg reveals that the new cars are still very fast in the corners and is therefore curious about the effect of the ‘dirty air’. “In the simulator, the cornering speeds are extremely high, so the risk of  “dirty air” is still given and it´s difficult for me to imagine that following another car comfortably at these speeds will be easy,” says ‘The Hulk’.

NASCAR’s newest Next Gen cars may be designed to make these vehicles as symmetrical as possible, but some teams have already found a way around the rules. During this week’s test session at Daytona International Speedway, some cars have been running some fairly excessive skew — and right now, it could very well be totally legal.

Basically, skew refers to the angled nature of the NASCAR Cup Series car. The front end looks like it’s pointing in a different direction than the car is actually going, which gives the whole thing a sort of crab-walk look. The rear axle is mounted on a skew when compared to the whole chassis. For…….

The speed by which electric vehicles have taken over Norway has stunned even the cars’ enthusiasts. [Asya Demidova/The New York Times]

Last year, Norway reached a milestone. Only about 8% of new cars sold in the country ran purely on conventional gasoline or diesel fuel. Two-thirds of new cars sold were electric, and most of the rest were electric-and-gasoline hybrids.

For years, Norway has been the world leader in shifting away from traditional cars, thanks to government benefits that made electric vehicles far more affordable and offered extras like letting electric car owners skip some fees for parking and toll roads.
