Justin Timberlake in the driving seat for Texas Formula One Grand Prix gig

  Justin Timberlake in the driving seat for Texas Formula One Grand Prix gig Justin Timberlake is following in Taylor Swift's footsteps by revving up to headline the Formula One Grand Prix in Texas. The Suit and Tie hitmaker will take to the stage at Austin's Circuit of the Americas in October (17). Organisers behind the event last year (16) enlisted Swift to drive larger crowds to the big race and introduce more people to the sport, and they are hoping to do the same with Timberlake. "Last year did what we hoped it would do, which is not only enhance an already great event but also give us the chance to expose a lot of new people to the sport," COTA chairman Bobby Epstein tells Reuters. "And it worked. I think where we saw a big change was in the average number of tickets sold per transaction, which told me that families were buying. And so I think we'll see that continue." Fans have been eagerly awaiting new music from 36-year-old Justin since he released Can't Stop the Feeling! in May (16). The song, which featured in the singer's animated movie Trolls, was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song and Justin opened up the prizegiving with a lively performance of the track. Meanwhile, Timberlake got fans excited on Tuesday (29Mar17) when he released a picture of himself with frequent collaborators Timbaland and Pharrell Williams on Instagram. And earlier this month (Mar17), the singer took to Twitter to assure impatient fans new music is "on the way". Justin released his last album, The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 in 2013. He also recently signed on to reprise his role as Branch in the Trolls sequel, which is set for release in 2020.

The Ateca FR isn’t the hottest version of SEAT’s SUV in the pipeline – a full-fat SEAT Ateca Cupra boasting up to 300bhp is currently being assessed by SEAT bosses and has been spied testing – but it should offer potential customers something a little spicier for the time being.

Victoria Beckham set to join James Corden for Carpool Karaoke

  Victoria Beckham set to join James Corden for Carpool Karaoke Victoria Beckham will be showing off her vocal talents when she joins James Corden for Carpool Karaoke later this year (17). The 42-year-old is better known for her fashion career than her singing capabilities these days. But she will be dusting off her vocal chords when she takes a seat beside fellow Brit James for an upcoming edition of his Carpool Karaoke sketch in Los Angeles, which sees him drive around a musical star, with the pair both singing along to the person's hits. Victoria will no doubt be singing the most famous tracks from her time with the Spice Girls, as well as her short-lived solo career, which saw her spawn just one hit - Out of Your Mind. The mother-of-four revealed her involvement in the sketch by sharing a behind-the-scenes look at it being filmed on her Instagram Stories. The clip began with Victoria having her make-up perfected, while hairdresser Ken Paves worked on her locks. She then shot a video of herself in the passenger seat of the car, telling the camera: "So we are here about to shoot Carpool Karaoke", before turning the camera onto James as he got into the driver's seat. Victoria also shared a picture of herself and James on her Instagram account, with the snap showing the fashionista wearing a crisp white shirt and mint green pleated skirt as James stood laughing behind her. "What is so funny @j_corden X VB," she captioned the image. Victoria's decision to do Carpool Karaoke is likely to come as a shock to fans, considering she turned down the chance to take part in the Spice Girls' anniversary reunion to concentrate on her career as a designer. Among the other stars to take part in Carpool Karaoke are Adele, One Direction, Mariah Carey, Elton John and Take That, whose recent stint on the show was to raise money for Comic Relief's Red Nose Day.

The seat Ateca FR SUV is said to have an all-wheel force system powered by means of the 2.0-liter engine. Meanwhile, the SUV 's release also marks the right time when buyers are trying to upgrade their present model for new and advanced editions.

The FR trim cars join an already large Ateca line-up, and SEAT intends for the Ateca FR to sit right underneath range-topping XCELLENCE versions. 18-inch ‘Performance’ style alloy wheels come as standard and 19-inch versions are on the options list. The large, sporty wheels are joined by body coloured wheelarches, replacing the black plastic cladding used on other Atecas, while the side skirts are finished with an aluminium strip.

SEAT, Skoda and Volkswagen: what’s the difference?

A new body-coloured rear bumper appears at the back, alongside a rear spoiler also finished in the same hue as the bodywork. Black roof rails, a gloss black front grille, new LED fog lamps and plenty of FR badges complete the look.

Inside, aluminium scuff plates with FR logos are the first things you’ll notice when opening the doors. Sports seats finished in Alcantara come as standard and so do aluminium pedals. A leather sports steering wheel sits in front of the driver, while the entire interior makes use of contrasting red stitching. Again, plenty of FR badges are dotted around the cabin.
