Азербайджанская рулетка: дайджест фееричной гонки Формулы-1 в Баку

- Первым инцидентом на Гран При Азербайджана стал разворот Карлоса Сайнса, который буквально шарахнулся в сторону от возвращавшегося на трассу после экскурсии в зону безопасности Даниила Квята. Сразу же после старта, как и предсказывалось, в Ferrari постарались воспользоваться преимуществом старта с чистой стороны трассы. Кими Райкконен даже успел поравняться и пройти чуть вперед Валттери Боттаса, но на углу улицы Пушкина финские парни не поделили дорогу: гонщик Мерседеса, оказавшийся внутри, подпрыгнул на бордюре и буквально прилетел в машину соперника

Год на Газели Next: подробный отчет

- С того момента, когда ГАЗ передал нам для длительных эксплуатационных испытаний грузовичок Газель Next, прошел уже год. Кормилица — так с легкой руки газовцев я прозвал машину — продолжает ездить не покладая поршней, и вот как она вела себя за отчетный период. «Заказной материал!», «Лапшин продался ГАЗу!» — эти комментарии посыпались после того, как я опубликовал первые отчеты о Газели Next (здесь и здесь) и ролик на YouTube

Квалификация Гран При Азербайджана: затишье перед бурей?

Квалификация Гран При Азербайджана: затишье перед бурей?

- Формула-1 приехала в Азербайджан во второй раз. В прошлом году участники чемпионата мира впервые распробовали необычное сочетание поразительных (до 370 км/ч) скоростей и узких лабиринтов старого города Баку. На сей раз машины стали медленнее из-за возросших поперечных размеров и дополнительного воздушного сопротивления, создаваемого огромными «катками»; но не это главное, что связано с изменением ширины болидов. Лишние 10 сантиметров ширины в виде спорта, где счет идет на миллиметры, очень даже сказывается, особенно на нестационарной трассе

    MOSCOW (AFP) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday (June 22) attacked new US sanctions against his country, saying they “seriously threaten the whole relationship” between Moscow and Washington. The measures are “vain attempts to pressure Russia,” Lavrov said in a statement published by the foreign ministry after a phone call with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. “These kinds of actions seriously threaten the whole relationship” between America and Russia, which is “already experiencing a difficult period without this,” Lavrov said
