Hamilton Could Have Piercings, But Mercedes Will Pay A $24,500 Fine

Hamilton Could Have Piercings, But Mercedes Will Pay A $24,500 Fine

October 3, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Lewis Hamilton will be permitted to continue wearing his nose stud at the Singapore Grand Prix due to medical need, but his team was fined $24,500 on Sunday for failing to alert the stewards.

The governing body of Formula One, the FIA, imposed the fine after Mercedes submitted a self-scrutineering form claiming that the British driver had adhered to rules by taking out all jewelry and body piercings.

“In recent times, Hamilton had the piercing removed before the match. Without asking Hamilton, the team thought he had already followed or would follow the same process for this event “the FIA stewards concluded in their decision.

“The stewards agree that the declaration’s mistake in this instance was not made on purpose or deliberately. In light of these facts, we impose a 25,000 euro punishment on the squad.”

According to seven-time world champion Hamilton, who removed the stud because to an infection, he was advised to do so by medical professionals.

Hamilton remarked, “I’ve worn my jewelry and nose stud for years and obviously there was all that hubbub at the beginning of the year.

It wasn’t able to come loose because it was soldered in at the time. They granted me an exemption for many races so I could come up with a solution, stated Hamilton.

I tried inserting and removing it. Because of that, it became infected. My nose was pretty uncomfortable, and I developed a blood blister. I told them all of this before I was qualified.

The physicians asked me to keep it in after I put it back in because it had begun to mend during the previous two weeks.

After qualifying third-fastest for Sunday’s race at the Marina Bay circuit, Hamilton was asked to go to the stewards’ room.

The stewards issued a statement stating that “broadcast footage revealed Hamilton wearing an item of jewellery in the form of a body piercing (nose stud) throughout the session.”

The team presented records from a medical professional that supported Hamilton’s statement. Hamilton “said that he had been instructed by his physicians not to remove it for the time being.

We decided to stop taking action in light of the mitigating circumstances.

Despite the regulation prohibiting drivers from wearing jewelry existing for decades, Hamilton claimed it was “all a little ludicrous” that it became a problem this season.

He replied, “One of the finest defences I ever heard was about heat and how metal transfers heat in a fire.

Hamilton said, “But our zip is metal, our helmet buckle is metal, and we have cables with aluminum metal in them.

“It’s absurd that we have to discuss something so trivial. Everything is a bit goofy. I’m hoping they’ll be reasonable.

The stewards’ first responsibility should be to keep us safe. However, this is not a safety concern.

Mercedes-AMG Teased The 2023 C63 Ahead Of Its Debut On September 21

Mercedes-AMG Teased The 2023 C63 Ahead Of Its Debut On September 21

September 19, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News


Exactly 63 hours before the premiere, AMG published the teaser image.

At the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier this year, AMG presented a near-production prototype of the C63 that was only lightly covered. Now, the sports sedan is going to be unveiled. There isn’t much we don’t know about the BMW M3 competitor, but we’re interested to see how those intriguing technological details will translate into performance in the real world. The subsequent model, in contrast to its rear-wheel-drive predecessor, will only be offered with 4Matic.

The V8 is now officially a thing of the past, to address the big issue in the room. The folks from Affalterbach have repeated multiple times that the 2.0-liter M139 from the “45” models would be used in the new C63, but with higher power and longitudinal mounting. Yes, the vehicle will be a plug-in hybrid. A 6.1 kWh battery will supply power to a rear-mounted electric motor.

Although purists will undoubtedly be unhappy by the cylinder count reduction, the flagship C-Class should still be brisk thanks to its combined 670 horsepower.

We can only hope that the C63 Estate will be shown as well; this hot wagon will compete against the M3 Touring, a brand-new competitor. Aside: New M vehicles will also be plug-in hybrids starting in 2023.

The Bavarians, on the other hand, promise to continue with the inline-six and V8 until at least 2030 and have no plans to reduce the size of their combustion engines.

Considering its PHEV design, the AMG C63 should have a fully electric range, but given how tiny the battery will be, the combustion engine will engage sooner rather than later. Weight is a worry since, despite the fact that the four-cylinder engine is lighter than the original V8, the hybrid-related components will undoubtedly add weight, and it wouldn’t surprise us if it ended up being significantly heavier than its predecessor.

Wednesday, September 21 is the planned date for the world premiere. Due to the two-door C-Class and E-Class models combining to form the CLE, AMG will not be releasing another C63 Coupe and Cabriolet.

The studio’s next game, Forza Horizon 5, will be published in November 2021, according to Xbox’s E3 2021 preview earlier this month.

Playground also highlighted the future game’s influence on Forza Horizon 4 content production on Monday’s edition of video show Forza Monthly. Following the release of the Series 37 update for Forza Horizon 4 on June 29, subsequent updates will not feature new content.

Playground senior producer Tom Butcher remarked, “With Forza Horizon 5’s release being our priority over the next several months, we’ve made some modifications to Forza Horizon 4’s monthly series updates.”

“As a result, beginning with Series update 38, players who are familiar with the game will notice the restoration of material from Series 7 to 32. Consider it a mix tape that includes the return of some of your favorite material as well as newly introduced new features.”

“Although we aren’t expecting to introduce any brand-new vehicles or features in the coming months, you should have a lot of fun reliving these situations and seeing how you manage them the second time around,” he continued. Photo challenges, prizes, the Forzathon Shop, and backstage voting will all be available as usual, thanks to all of our latest Series updates.”

When asked if the game will continue to receive updates after the release of Forza Horizon 5, Butcher stated, “We do intend to make sure Forza Horizon 4 continues to be a great experience, but we aren’t ready to disclose precise plans quite yet.”

The G-body Class’s style, which is fully painted in “British Racing Green,” is both aesthetically and technically stunning. The whole aerodynamic system has been overhauled. Starting with the front apron and moving on to the beautifully expanded front wings, widened doors, and finally the rear apron. All of these parts are composed entirely of carbon fibre and are accented with dark grey “Forged Carbon” coatings.

Based on the Mercedes G-Class model G63, this is a complete vehicle modification.
“British Racing Green” was used for the whole paint job.
Applications of carbon in “Forged-Carbon”
There are just 10 of them available in the world.
Interior is finished in “Fawn Brown” full leather.
Increased horsepower and torque to 850 hp and 1.000 Nm.
Vmax: 250 km/h, 0-100 km in 3,5 seconds.

For many years, complete conversions based on the Mercedes G-Class have been an important element of automotive tuner Kourosh Mansory’s product range, and with countless conversions, one of the most successful.

Last year, MANSORY introduced two new items based on the Mercedes G-Class to fulfil the high expectations and specific requests of its clients. On the one hand, since the beginning of last year, the “Star Trooper Pickup” has been available in collaboration with designer and couturier PHILIPP PLEIN, and on the other, a completely independent special protection vehicle programmed (complementary to all G-Class conversions) has been developed, which follows the philosophy of “invisible armoring.”

And, after MANSORY unveiled a complete conversion called “GRONOS” for the first time in 2013, a new edition of this bestseller called “GRONOS 2021” will be released in the first quarter of 2021, which follows its forerunner in the original design philosophy, but has been adapted to the current “zeitgeist” and customer wishes through numerous detail modifications inside and out, thus keeping the G-Class utmost in luxury.

The “GRONOS 2021” in detail:

The G-body Class’s style, which is fully painted in “British Racing Green,” is both aesthetically and technically stunning. The whole aerodynamic system has been overhauled. Starting with the front apron and moving on to the beautifully expanded front wings, widened doors, and finally the rear apron. All of these parts are composed entirely of carbon fibre and are accented with dark grey “Forged Carbon” coatings.

The front portion is finished off with an ultra-light full carbon bonnet in unpainted “Forged Carbon” with extra cooling air vents at the front and sides. The two light-intensive extra headlights on the edge of the roof, as well as the double daytime running lights on both sides of the front apron, are also trimmed in carbon, and complete the overall image of the “GRONOS 2021” gracefully and harmoniously from the front. The spare wheel is also entirely coated in “Forged Carbon” at the back, and is – when combined with the newly styled rear apron – a stunning combination.

resulting in a pleasing result Numerous other “Forged Carbon” components, including as the indicator bases, door handle inserts, mirror housings, air intakes and outlets, offer further dramatic features and, when combined with the distinctive “British Racing Green” paint finish, make an incredibly attractive combination.

Performance:

The 4.0-litre V8 engine now has larger turbochargers, new left and right downpipes, a high-performance exhaust system, and a new engine control system. Instead of the 585 horsepower of the regular G63 AMG, this results in an astounding 850 hp. From 850 to 1.000 Nm, the maximum torque is increased. As a consequence, the sprint time from zero to 100 kilometers per hour has been reduced to just 3.5 seconds, and the peak speed has been boosted to (restricted) 250 kilometers per hour.

The luxury tuner Brand equips the “GRONOS 2021” with high-performance tyres in the size 295/30R24 all around to deliver this massive power to the road. They’re mounted on forged rims (type: “YN.5”) with a totally black finish and a 10×24 diameter.

And, as with all MANSORY full conversions, the interior design is no less luxurious as the unique appearance. The interior is finished entirely in “Fawn Brown” coloured leather and uses only the finest materials. A new leather-carbon sports steering wheel, an aluminum sports pedal, dark carbon inlays, and new leather inserts with 3D embossing for the seats, door inserts, and center armrest are just as appealing as the finely embroidered MANSORY emblem in the seats and floor mats. In contrast, the inside carpets are completely black.

This one-of-a-kind car will only be available to a select few. The magnificent off-road vehicle is available for pre-order now and is restricted to only 10 units globally.
