Tesla's core business of selling Model S and Model X vehicles is holding up, but no one is paying attention (TSLA)

Red Bull must be F1 title contender with Honda - Brawn

After sweeping four consecutive F1 title doubles from 2010 to 2013, the V6 turbo-hybrid engines that arrived in 2014 reduced Red Bull to a bit-part player. It has opted to part company with long-time engine supplier Renault and join forces with Honda, which rebuilt its reputation with Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso this year after its poor 2015-2017 spell with McLaren. Brawn, who ran Honda's works effort in 2008, enjoyed major success at Ferrari and helped lay the foundations for ...
