  Amazon’s 2018 Product Roadmap: What To Expect What will 2018 bring from the tech giant?As is evident from its Whole Foods purchase, Amazon isn’t afraid to splash down some serious cash for big name companies.

Pirelli : F1 fans won' t be confused by 2018 tyres . F1's official tyre supplier has added two new dry tyres to either end of its range for 2018, a super-hard tyre (marked with ice blue colours on the wall) and a hyper-soft (marked with pink).

Formula 1’s independent tyre supplier Pirelli has quashed reports its new seven-tyre range will confuse fans, despite critics stating it will only make the sport more complicated to understand.

Pirelli unveiled two new dry-weather compounds to add to its ever-growing range at the end of last year, with a pink walled hyper-soft tyre and a blue walled super-hard tyre expanding the number of dry compound tyres to seven.

Despite complaints it will make races harder to follow, Pirelli’s sporting director Mario Isola insists the increased tyre range will not confuse fans but ‘spice up’ the racing with more flexibility on strategy and more pitstops.

Bouffier gets two 2018 WRC outings with M-Sport

  Bouffier gets two 2018 WRC outings with M-Sport Bryan Bouffier will return to the top tier of the World Rally Championship, in the series’ season opener in Monte Carlo, driving the third M-Sport Ford Fiesta. Bouffier, who won the 2011 Monte Carlo Rally when it was part of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, will drive alongside five-time champion Sebastien Ogier and Welshman Elfyn Evans. The Frenchman will get a second outing in Corsica, the venue of his last WRC event, where he retired driving a Fiesta R5 car in the WRC2 class. “I honestly didn’t think I would get an opportunity to drive this car, not even on tests, so I am very excited,” said Bouffier. “It’s always a great pleasure to work with Malcolm [Wilson] and the M-Sport team and their amazing success in 2017 makes me very proud to work with them again. “Monte and Corsica are two very different events, but they are also two of my favourites. “They’re the two French rounds of the season and it is always a pleasure to drive on home soil – even more so with this new car.” Bouffier came second in the 2014 Monte Carlo Rally and was on course for seventh two years later before breaking his suspension. The 39-year-old has driven a wide range of cars throughout his career, most recently beating three-time European Rally Champion Kajetan Kajetanowicz by just 0.3 seconds to win the Rally di Roma Capitale in the penultimate ERC rally of 2017 in a Fiesta R5. Team principal Malcom Wilson added: “These are two of the most specialised rallies on the calendar and the conditions and tyre selections can so often determine who succeeds. “With Bryan’s knowledge, we will have another string to our bow as we look to defend our championship titles.” Youngster Teemu Suninen is expected to be handed eight outings in the Fiesta R5, with 2016 M-Sport driver Eric Camilli taking the remaining three events.

Pirelli ’s revised range of F1 tyres for 2018 season “can only create better racing” by encouraging multiple pitstops, says Red Bull team Fans believe these many options will lead to confusion in the tyre choices. But Horner believes that the tyre testing in Abu Dhabi proved that the new tyre range

“There are still three compounds at each event, so no changes compared to last year,” Isola .

“More colours, yes. [But] spectators are not so stupid not to understand three colours at each event.

“I know that there were some criticisms around this choice to increase the number of compounds. I believe that with the additional compounds we have more flexibility and the opportunity to make a better selection in order to have the all the three compounds suitable for the trace.”

“The target is to have a bit more degradation to try to target two [pit] stops and different strategies.”

It was suggested that Pirelli should rename each of the selected tyre compounds for each grand prix soft, medium and hard. Isola revealed this was taken into consideration but was rejected.

Pirelli has launched an expanded array of Formula 1 tyres in 2018 by unveiling seven compounds in a "rainbow" range , in a move not universally welcomed. It's a mess already and really confusing to casual viewers, and Vettelari: There's no need for any new tyre names or increasing the types to six.

“We discussed that internally and we came to the conclusion that we are not giving the right message because it looks like we are using the same compound for each event,” he added.

“We want to explain to the spectators that in Monaco you need softer compounds and in Silverstone you need a harder compounds.”
