FIA amends super license rules for possible debut

The FIA has adjusted its regulations, which could allow Andrea Kimi Antonelli to potentially debut in F1 before turning 18. Williams asked for this because Antonelli is talented and close to 18. Now, drivers aged 17 can get a super license if they're really good at racing without needing a driving license first. This means Antonelli could join F1 soon, and it further raises questions about his future and Logan Sargeant's at Williams.

Newey reportedly joins Ferrari in $105M deal

Adrian Newey has reportedly signed a massive $105 million contract over three years with a rival team that is yet to be disclosed, likely Ferrari. This surprising move, brokered by his friend Eddie Jordan, comes after Newey's announcement to leave Red Bull, where he achieved 13 world titles. Despite interest from other teams, Ferrari seems to have secured Newey's services, which could potentially place him in charge of their design department with a significant pay raise. If confirmed, this partnership could have far-reaching implications for Formula 1 competition.

How drivers pulled up in Montreal

At the Canadian Grand Prix, the F1 drivers' parking area featured an interesting variety of vehicles, as usual. But this time, they had to park on the opposite side of the lake and walk across a bridge. Lando Norris drove a Honda Yukon SLE, while Piastri had the same car in black. Kevin Magnussen opted for a Dodge Durango, and Hulkenberg chose a large FORD SUV.

Vowles talks Canadian GP

He talks about why the drivers did only one lap in FP1, why Alex didn't finish his lap, when the team will add aerodynamic performance parts to the car, and whether the upgrades met expectations, among other things.
