Why Stoffel Vandoorne Will Succeed Where McLaren’s Previous Young Drivers Failed

McLaren have a recent history of chewing up and spitting out young Formula One drivers. With 24-year-old rookie Stoffel Vandoorne taking over Jenson Button's race seat in 2017, will the results be any different for the young Belgian than for Sergio Perez or Kevin Magnussen? Back in 2012, Perez came this close to winning a wet Malaysian Grand Prix, just his 19th F1 race. Ultimately, the then-22-year-old settled for second in Malaysia and scored two other podium finishes in Canada and Italy. In September, McLaren named him as their replacement for Lewis Hamilton, who was leaving for Mercedes. Unfortunately for Perez, his arrival coincided with a downturn in McLaren's form and (to that point) one of the worst season's in the team's histor...

MotoGP Grand Prix of Aragon 2016 Results: Winner, Standings and Reaction

Marc Marquez extended his lead at the top of the 2016 MotoGP standings on Sunday after overcoming a sluggish start to emerge as victor in the Aragon Grand Prix.  Three years after his maiden triumph at the Spanish venue, Marquez thundered back with a vengeance to defeat runner-up Jorge Lorenzo, while Valentino Rossi was forced to settle for third.

Here's a look at the final 2016 Aragon Grand Prix finishers, where Marquez booked his fourth win of the year and increased his standings lead to 52 points over Rossi, courtesy of the official Moto...

Martin Truex Jr. leads the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series going into the second race of the Chase Sunday in what figures to be a Toyota-dominated Bad Boy Off Road 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Valtteri Bottas Should Leave Williams for Renault for 2017 Formula 1 Season

The five red lights went out and Valtteri Bottas leaped off the line, instantly nudging ahead of Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bull and sidestepping Kimi Raikkonen's slow-starting Ferrari. As he sped past the piece of track reserved for the sister Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel, whose engine failure on the formation lap left him unable to start a race for the first time in his Formula One career, just two cars separated the man who started sixth from the lead of the Bahrain Grand Prix. It was at that point—as Lewis Hamilton, determined to make up for yet another poor getaway from pole position, hounded the rear of Nico Rosberg's car and positioned himself on the outside of his Mercedes team-mate—when Bottas faced a dilemma. With a large g...

MotoGP Grand Prix of Aragon 2016: Race Schedule, Live Stream and Top Riders

Marc Marquez returns to Spain as the MotoGP standings leader ahead of Sunday's 2016 Grand Prix of Aragon, but a stagnant period in results could see the young marvel fall closer to the pack this weekend. The 23-year-old holds a 43-point advantage over second-placed Valentino Rossi, but after failing to register a podium finish in either of his last two races, there's everything to ride for at MotorLand Aragon this Sunday. Marquez hasn't won a race since the 2016 German Prix back in July, whereas Rossi has clinched third or higher in his last three outings and is looking to close the gap with only five races of the season remaining. Jorge Lorenzo will also be staking a claim on top spot in Aragon, a race he's won the last two years in succe...

Formula 1’s Latest Rumours and Talk: Fernando Alonso, Sebastian Vettel and More

After being scarred by bold promises and overambitious targets, McLaren-Honda are finally beginning to deliver in Formula One. Fernando Alonso's seventh-place finish in the Singapore Grand Prix means the team have now scored double the amount of points they managed to scratch together during their worst season in 35 years in 2015. For a partnership that dominated the sport in the 1980s and '90s, that is still far from good enough, but Alonso has revealed McLaren are looking forward to the 2017 regulation changes, which should allow them to challenge for victories and world championships once more. While McLaren can't wait for next season to start, Ferrari—on course for a second winless campaign in three years—don't want this one...
