F1: Will Ferrari’s Loyalty To Massa Be Repaid?

28 February 2013 1:23 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In October, Felipe Massa secured another season sitting in a Ferrari for the upcoming calendar – despite having a dismal start to the season, the Brazilian was rewarded for a string of improved performances, including a podium position in Japan. That was his first podium in 35 races. He has always been a number two in Ferrari colours, but does the 31 year old still have the pace to compete for one of the top 3 teams in the sport?

Massa’s career in red has been an eventful one to say the least: replacing fellow Brazilian Rubens Barrichello for the 2006 season at Ferrari, Massa landed himself a seat partnering Michael Schumacher in the German’s farewell year. Finishing on the podium in the European, French and Japanese GPs, plus victories in Turkey and is home race in Interlagos, Massa’s first season with Ferrari was fairly successful.

Lewis Hamilton breaks 'Top Gear' Reasonably-Priced Car record

18 February 2013 1:50 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton broke the Top Gear Star In A Reasonably-Priced Car lap record on last night's (February 17) show.

The sports star returned to the BBC entertainment series for a second attempt at the competition after struggling in wet and oily conditions on his previous effort in 2007.

Lewis managed to lap the Top Gear circuit in a Suzuki Liana in 1.42.9, smashing fellow F1 star Sebastian Vettel's previous record of 1.44.

"Wow, holy crap. I'm surprised," said Hamilton after the winning lap time was announced.

Host Jeremy Clarkson revealed to viewers that Hamilton had been so annoyed with his previous lap time that he had done a deal with producers to return to the show.

Hamilton revealed that the Top Gear challenge was a big talking point for F1 drivers and said that rival Rubens Barrichello had at one point printed out a T-shirt with 'I Beat The Stig' printed »

Lewis Hamilton returns to 'Top Gear' in attempt to break lap record

14 February 2013 10:28 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton returns to Top Gear this week and wants to claim the Reasonably Priced Car lap time crown.

Last time Hamilton appeared on the show in December 2007, the sports star took the Suzuki Liana around the show's race course in 1:44.7.

However, Hamilton was hampered by wet weather and was unable to match the times of fellow F1 stars Nigel Mansell (1:44.6), Rubens Barrichello (1:44.3) and Sebastian Vettel (1:44.0).

Other features on this week's show include Jeremy Clarkson taking the new Kia Cee'd for a road test involving eels, curry, a rock legend, an American cop and a game of rugby involving James May, while Richard Hammond is road testing the Mastretta sports car.

Earlier this series, Homeland star Damian Lewis broke the record for the slowest ever celebrity lap on the car show.

Top Gear continues on Sunday nights on BBC Two.
