The Gen3 is the first Formula Car aligned with Life Cycle Thinking with a clear path to a second and end of life for all tires, broken parts and battery cells. Besides:

  • The Gen3 will be net zero carbon, maintaining Championship status as the first sport to be certified net zero carbon since its inception.
  • All broken carbon fiber parts will be recycled by an innovative process in the aviation and aerospace industry into new reusable fibers for other applications.
  • A pioneering process will provide 26% sustainable materials in the composition of the tires.
  • The Gen3 is powered by electric motors which are significantly more efficient than ICEs as they can convert over 90% of electrical energy into mechanical energy (motion) compared to approx. 40% in high efficiency ICEs.
  • All suppliers are required to adhere to strict sustainability KPIs, including achieving FIA 3 * environmental accreditation certification by Season 9.

Jean Todt, President of the FIA, said: “The new Gen3 Formula E single-seater is a car created at the intersection of high performance, efficiency and durability. The work accomplished by the FIA ​​teams with Formula E since the launch of the discipline eight seasons ago tirelessly seeks to stimulate innovation and promote the development of sustainable mobility. I have no doubt that this new single-seater will take Formula E to the next level. “

Formula E CEO Jamie Reigle said: “In designing the Gen3 car, we wanted to demonstrate that high performance, efficiency and durability can coexist without compromise. Together with the FIA, we have built the most efficient and durable high performance racing car in the world.

“The Gen3 is our fastest, lightest, most powerful and efficient race car to date. It’s a creature designed for its habitat: running through city streets in wheel-to-wheel battles. We look forward to seeing him inspire and thrill the next generation of motorsport fans in cities around the world starting in Season 9 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. “

“It’s just nice to keep the spirit really alive,” he says. “I was lucky enough to be involved with cars at their peak which really opened my eyes.

“All the different cars from that era had something in them – they were so spectacular.

“Bursts of fire, whistles, crashing down a horrific amount of vintage speed-type racing. They were excellent for going in a straight line, maybe not so much in the corners!

“They also took a driver to drive, there is no electronics on these things. They hung on, just to keep them on the tarmac.

“I ventured out and tried the F3000, but decided it was way too pretentious. Building a race car from something that isn’t meant to be a race car is a cool concept.

Rouse, the 60-time race winner, also has no doubts about the historic significance and provenance of the car.

“It was a great racing car, but the important thing was that it was also affordable, which was the key to its success,” he says.

“In one of the grand prix of the late 80s, there were 18 RS500s on the grid. It’s a testament to something that is a bit of an icon.

“The best racing sedan ever, I would say. “

Prices for the Andy Rouse Engineering Ford Sierra RS500 Group A Touring Car suite start at £ 185,000. Requests can be made at [email protected]

The young Archduchess of Austria announced that she welcomed her first child with her Belgian racing driver husband with a gushing post on Instagram.

Eleonore von Habsburg, 27, whose full title is Archduchess of Austria, Princess Royal of Hungary, Bohemia and Croatia, married Formula E driver Jerome d’Ambrosio, 35, in an office in registration in Monaco last July, according to Hello! magazine.

She shared the news online with a black and white snapshot of her son’s hand, writing: “Welcome to the world, little Otto – born October 20, 2021.

“Your parents couldn’t be prouder of you. Our hearts are full of love.

The royal said she and her husband were “no more proud” of their young son Otto, born last week

The couple named their first son in honor of Eleanor’s late grandfather, Otto, the last crown prince of Austria.

Born in Salzburg, the glamorous and social model is the daughter of Archduke Karl von Habsburg – head of the House of Habsburg-Lorraine and prominent politician – and his ex-wife, Baroness Francesca von Habsburg.

This makes Éléonore the great-granddaughter of Austria’s last emperor, Charles I of Austria, who reigned for two years until the monarchy was abolished at the end of World War I.

At the height of its power, the House of Habsburg was one of the most influential and influential rulers in Europe.

The couple had planned a large church wedding, but due to coronavirus restrictions, they opted for a smaller civil ceremony at a registry office.

One of the great personalities of modern European history: Otto von Habsburg

Born in 1912, Otto Habsburg was the heir to the empire until he collapsed at the end of World War I and his family went into exile.

However, after World War II, he emerged from the ashes of his family’s crumbling empire as the champion of a united and democratic Europe, especially during his Cold War divide.

Habsburg used his influence in a futile struggle to prevent the Nazis from annexing Austria before WWII, and then campaigned against the Soviet Empire in the decades following the war.

With the fall of the Berlin Wall, he used his seat in the European Parliament to push for the enlargement of the European Union to include the former Eastern Bloc countries.

Despite Eleonore’s royal relationship, she had previously explained to Madonna24 how her parents had always insisted that she and her siblings stay “grounded” and that she loved shopping at department stores such as Mango, Zara. and H&M.

“I’m incredibly grateful to my parents for not bringing us up to believe that it’s okay to go to a Swiss boarding school and live in a fancy apartment in London,” she told the site.

Eleonore has been with d’Ambrosio since early 2017 and has close ties to the racing world with her brother, Ferdinand Habsburg, DTM driver.

The eldest of three children, she attended a boarding school in Gstaad, Switzerland, before studying law at the European Business School in London.

The smart beauty aristo is fluent in German and English, and is said to be proficient in French and Spanish as well.

And it seems fashion is in the family as her mother, who descends from Swiss nobility, also enjoyed a brief stint as a model before pursuing a career as an art collector.

It is not known if she pursued a career in law, but she rose to prominence in the fashion world with high-profile campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana under her belt.

She was handpicked to appear in the Italian luxury brand’s SS18 runway show in Milan alongside other societal beauties including Lady Kitty Spencer, Lady Amelia Windsor and Maria-Olympia from Greece and Denmark.

But she insists that her goal is not modeling, telling Madonna24: “It was a great experience – but the world of modeling is definitely not my main career path.”

The newlyweds looked elated as they posed for photos at their reception venue, where they were joined by a larger group of friends and family to celebrate their nuptials.

Eleonore is an avid jet set enthusiast and regularly posts Instagram updates from far-flung destinations like Cambodia, Morocco and Argentina to name a few.

Based in Monaco, d’Ambrosio is also a brand ambassador for Hugo Boss and Julius Baer and has already competed in the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The couple announced their engagement in March 2019 after two years of dating.

Alter Lake chips will begin shipping this year, first to desktop, then to mobile.

Intel Alder Lake processors are coming soon with rumors hinting at a November 4 launch. The Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker has been promoting the chip for some time now, especially its “hybrid” architecture. The idea is to offer a combination of performance (codenamed Golden Cove) and efficiency (Gracemont) of x86 cores, instead of simple powerful next-gen processor cores, for a mix of power when needed. and efficiency during less demanding tasks. Intel has already unveiled a full line of chips from 9W to 125W that would use the new hybrid model, meaning Alder Lake is much more ambitious than last year’s Lakefield chip.

As it should be, because the competition is only getting stronger. Intel isn’t the only company taking the hybrid route for lean computing. Arm’s big.LITTLE and DynamicIQ technologies have been around for over a decade. They serve as models for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips that power the majority of Android smartphones on the market today and Apple’s A-series chips for iPhone. Perhaps even more relevant to this comparison, Cupertino’s M1 chip for Mac has just received a big refresh with M1 Pro and M1 Max, both of which feature eight high-performance, over-efficient cores.

Needless to say, a lot will depend on how Intel’s Alder Lake chips turn out when they start shipping this year – desktops first, followed by mobiles. Financial Express Online sat down with Intel’s Prakash Mallya to understand some of the key points of Alder Lake, its importance to the business in times of increasing competition and the larger situation of the semiconductor industry, that is ie the global shortage of chips and when I tend. Extracts.

EF | Tell us about Alder Lake, its feature set and improvements over the last generation.

Prakash Mallya | Look, this is a fantastic product. It is a mixture of powerful and efficient cores. The Efficient Core is a highly scalable x86 microarchitecture to meet compute requirements across the spectrum of our customers’ needs, from low-power mobile applications to multi-core microservices. It was designed for throughput, enabling scalable multithreaded performance for modern multitasking. Compared to Skylake, the Efficient core offers 40% more performance at equal power, or the same performance while consuming less than 40% of the power.

When you look at the performance core, this x86 core is not only the highest performing processor core ever built by Intel, but it also offers a step function in the performance of the processor architecture that will lead the next one. decade of calculation. It was designed for the speed, low latency, and performance of single-threaded applications.

Intel, Alder LakePrakash Mallya, Vice President and General Manager – Sales, Marketing and Communications Group, Intel India

This high-performance hybrid approach is further enhanced by Intel Thread Director, a technology engineered in Alder Lake that helps the operating system make smarter, more informed decisions about the location of running threads. It uses real-world hardware telemetry to guide operating systems to the right workload, which can be guided to the right hearts at the right time. Thread Director is fully dynamic, adaptive, and autonomous from a static, deterministic, and software-only approach.

EF | How does your hybrid model compare to the competition and what are some of its advantages?

Prakash Mallya | Our Alder Lake design approach begins with delivering incredible performance that ranges from ultra-portable laptops to hobbyist and commercial desktops. We are introducing two completely new microarchitectures for Alder Lake and both are high performance in themselves and complement each other. The conventional “hybrid” approach today in the industry is often focused on getting the most hours of use from a battery, which often requires a trade-off between performance and efficiency. energetic.

A good analogy is to think of conventional hybrid cars that focus on getting maximum miles on a tank of gas compared to Formula 1 racing cars that use hybrid technology to achieve maximum performance. detonate them when cornering with acceleration. Alder Lake is the high performance hybrid we designed for IT.

It will be Intel’s first processor based on the Intel 7 process and will serve as the foundation for leading desktop and mobile processors that deliver smarter, faster, and more efficient computing in the real world in a variety of form factors. . It will start shipping this year and we said the desktop will be mobile tracked. We’ll have more details to share later.

I will say however, when people have said that PCs are a mature category, in my opinion PC innovation is at its highest level that I have ever seen. I have been with the company for 21 years and am constantly impressed with the amount of innovation brought together on PC and Alder Lake is a prime example.

EF | What will its use case be? Is there a category that will “specifically” benefit from these new chips?

Prakash Mallya | Due to the hybrid nature of the platform, it meets a variety of needs and all of those needs are critical. You can say that a need is commercial applications. If you’re building a business laptop or business desktop, you need great performance, great battery life, great screen quality, and a flexible design. . Can Alder Lake do this? Yes he can. Likewise, for consumer or commercial desktops, this can be a game-changer, as the performance threshold has a big impact on the performance of any application. I cannot say that one segment will be better served than the other. Alder Lake will dramatically change the way people think of PC computing.

EF | What is Thread Director’s role in all of this?

Prakash Mallya | One of the main reasons for Intel’s success over the past 52 years is the level of software innovation we do with the ecosystem. We don’t do it alone. A lot of the technology that we built on Centrino that was wireless was power management and we brought the elements of that together with industry. Ultrabooks were the evolution we did a few years ago that again had different elements, one of them was software and then design, form factor, and screen elements. When you look again today, the activation that we do on software on all platforms – not just at Alder Lake – people have a seamless experience on Intel x86 platforms for this reason. Now, I’m going to tell you specifically about Thread Director, since it is a hybrid architecture and is dynamic in nature, its flexibility being able to run multithreaded, single-threaded on a dynamic basis, Because of the telemetry that happens dynamically, it is very powerful and the kind of work we will do with the software ecosystem and continue in the future will have a big impact on the experience we make for consumers, owners. company, players or others.

EF | How crucial is software to improving the capabilities of silicon?

Prakash Mallya | OpenVINO as a cutting edge AI inference track is a great example of what software can do to really open up functionality and drive value for people building cutting edge inference-based applications. It is a software toolkit. The type of work we do on the network, whether it’s the software stack we’ve built and the benchmark platforms we’ve built, that enables telecom service providers or solution providers in the telecommunications space to bring to life the feature sets that are built into silicon, be it the N SKUs, which are the Xeon SKUs, which when combined with the software really accelerate the charging performance of the device. network work. Software work happens in every part of our architecture and with Intel Innovation what our CEO Pat Gelsinger is signaling to the industry is that software is going to be hugely important. The software is going to be very important and hardware for the strategy of the company.

EF | What is Intel’s position on the current global semiconductor shortage? How are you doing, what are you doing to speed up manufacturing and when will this crisis end?

Prakash Mallya | Technology has never been more important than it is today. Lockdowns and work-from-home policies during the COVID-19 pandemic have dramatically increased the need for laptops, game consoles, IoT devices and more. This has caused an explosive growth in semiconductors that has strained the global supply chain. It will take a few years to address the shortages of foundry capacity, substrates and components.

We are actively working with our supply chain partners to increase the availability of third-party materials and components to further improve the performance of our processors and to support the broader PC ecosystem. We have increased our capacity to meet demand and as a result we plan to increase our annual double-digit client processor supply year over year compared to 2020.

We are expanding our advanced chip manufacturing capability by investing $ 20 billion in two plants in Arizona. We plan to expand our presence in the United States and Europe to ensure a sustainable and secure semiconductor supply chain for the world. We remain focused on supporting our customers and will continue to work to increase the offer to meet their needs.

A fire destroyed a trailer carrying a race car in National City Thursday afternoon, and a fire investigator said the blaze was started when a spare battery fell against fuel containers.

A thick plume of black smoke could be seen as the flames burned the 20-foot-long trailer and the car inside, a 1992 Honda Civic modified to be a racing car with a bloated engine and roll cage, National Town Battalion Chief Robert said. Hernandez.

The fire was reported shortly after 12:50 p.m. in a parking lot on West 22nd Street near Hoover Avenue.

Hernandez said the driver was exiting the freeway when he noticed smoke coming from the front of the trailer. As the driver pulled up to a vacant lot, flames erupted from the trailer.

The driver disconnected the vehicle towing the trailer, then grabbed a fire extinguisher and attempted to extinguish the fire. He suffered slight smoke inhalation but did not require medical attention, Hernandez said.

No one else was injured.

“The entire trailer and vehicle are a complete loss,” said the battalion commander. An estimate of the damage was not immediately available.

The cause of the fire was believed to have been electrical, caused when a battery stored in the trailer loosened, tipped over and fell against containers of racing fuel, Hernandez said.

THEY might lack the roar of a gasoline engine – but a student racing team is still making noise with its first electric car.

The University of Glasgow UGRacing team is going green by replacing a gasoline engine with a more durable battery in their self-built vehicle.

About 140 students are involved in the design, construction and driving of the fully electric racing car, which will be put to the test on the famous Silverstone circuit.

Fraser Cowie, UGRacing Team Director, said: “After a brilliant result in Formula Student competition earlier this summer, we have great confidence in the design of our car and are delighted to get down to business. to manufacture our first electric vehicle. .

“With COP26 on the horizon, now is the perfect time to focus on moving away from fossil fuels and our contribution to making racing more environmentally friendly.

“It’s a big commitment, and we’ll need to learn all kinds of new skills, but it’s an exciting challenge with real benefits for those of us who work as a team.

“Many former UGRacing members have made careers in the racing and renewable energy industry, so this is a great opportunity for us to develop hands-on experience with the kind of technology that will help us achieve a clean future. zero. ”

The members of UGRacing, established in 2008, come from the four colleges of the university and in the last Formula Student competition earlier this summer, the UGRacing team’s electric vehicle placed third out of 65 entrants in the Design section. Presentation of the competition.

Formula Student is an engineering competition open to those studying at universities in the UK.

Established in 1998, it challenges teams to build and ride high performance single-seaters against each other, with races held at Silverstone each summer.

The team is now starting to work on installing a custom battery on the vehicle, with guidance and safety advice from staff at the university’s James Watt School of Engineering and sponsor Arnold Clark Motors.

Glasgow Times: The University of Glasgow Running Team

The team’s work is part of a campus-wide goal on sustainability at the University of Glasgow and their current generation car will be on display in the university cloisters as part of the series university climate-focused events at the COP26 conference.

Gurleen Khaira, Head of Marketing and Media at UGRacing, added: “The UGRacing team is made up of students from the University of Glasgow with all kinds of different skills, not just science and engineering.
