My favourite ever Formula 1 driver, Jean Alesi, returned to drive for Ferrari at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix 2021, held over the 23-25 April. Alesi raced in 201 Formula 1 races from 1989-2001, with his only win coming at the 1995 Canadian Grand Prix, at the wheel of a Ferrari 412 T2.
– The Toyota GR 86 is the third model in the GAZOO Racing series of sports cars, including the GR Supra and GR Yaris.
– A larger, more powerful horizontally opposed boxer engine, with an increase in displacement from 2.0 to 2.4 litres. Maximum power is boosted to 173kW and torque is now 250Nm, with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
Prior to the Yaris, Toyota had entered a number of other models into the World Rally Championship, including the Celica GT-FOUR and Corolla WRC. Celica GT-FOUR models including the ST165, ST185 and ST205 were incredibly successful in the WRC, collecting 30 rally victories, four drivers’ and two manufacturers’ championship titles.

The recently released Genesis GV80 is Genesis’ first attempt at an SUV and joins the G70 and G80 sedans. There are four different GV80 models with three different engine choices.
The 2021 F1 season opener was scheduled to be held at the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne from 18-21 March 2021. Unfortunately, due to continuing international travel disruptions and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been postponed until 18-21 November 2021.
Happy New Year everyone! It’s fair to say that 2020 had some big highs but was also hugely challenging personally. I think it’s a good opportunity to provide an update on the plans for Automotive Torque for the first half of 2021.
