Vettel 'not looking forward' to closed cockpits in 2018

  Vettel 'not looking forward' to closed cockpits in 2018 Sebastian Vettel says he’s “not looking forward” to driving closed cockpit Formula 1 cars with the Halo next year, but accepts the sport will get used to it overtime. From 2018, F1 cars will be sporting the Halo cockpit protection device, that has been tested extensively since 2016 in wake of a series of accidents that has resulted in a driver being struck on the head by debris. As a result, F1’s governing body the FIA has given the Halo the green light to be mandated into next year’s sporting regulations, bringing to an end F1’s 67-year open cockpit era. Although the structure has received a backlash from fans and drivers, Vettel insists having tested the Halo – vision is not obstructed by the central pillar. “I’m not looking forward to it, but it’s part of the game,” Vettel said. “I’m sure we’ll get used to it. I’ve tried now a couple of times, for sure some things need to change, like the start lights on the grid. “You need to play around a little bit – but I think we will when we get to next year’s cars. But yeah it’s in the front of your face, in front of your helmet – you get used to it, though. “What you need to see, you can still see, otherwise we wouldn’t introduce it.” Vettel ultimately came up short in the battle for this year’s world championship, despite taking five wins, the most for a Ferrari driver since Fernando Alonso in 2010. The German still hails the season as a success given the teams resurgence from a winless 2016 but is excited given Ferrari’s preparations for next year. “I think it was a fun season and it’s a bit of a shame that it’s over,” the four-time champion added. “I would’ve liked to have another five races, then I think we would be in good shape! But yeah, looking forward there’s a lot of stuff going on for next year, so quite excited as well.

Peugeot reveals i-Cockpit inspired powerboat cabin © Auto Express Peugeot reveals i-Cockpit inspired powerboat cabin

Peugeot has become the latest car manufacturer to apply its know-how to the nautical world, revealing a concept powerboat interior inspired by the firm’s i-Cockpit dashboard design.

Usually found in the firm’s latest SUVs, the Sea Drive Concept cockpit has been created through collaboration with boat maker Beneteau, and has been revealed at this year’s Nautic Paris Boat Show. 

The steering wheel appears to have been lifted directly from any one of Peugeot’s latest models, while the i-Cockpit’s trademark ‘piano key’ switchgear is also present.

The screen uses technology developed by Beneteau and is the interface from which many of the ship’s settings are accessible. A smaller navigation display sits behind the steering wheel, and folds away when not needed.

Peugeot’s influence over the cockpit is also seen in the fit and finish. The firm says that the interior makes use of materials lifted from GT trim level cars, with the same Nappa leather, copper coloured contrasting stitching, plus satin chrome trim accents.

Aston Martin partnered with Dutch yacht maker Quintessence in 2016 to produce the £1m AM37 powerboat, while Mercedes and Lexus revealed similar projects earlier this year.

Timbaland reveals addiction battle .
Producer Timbaland decided to get sober after he almost overdosed on prescription pills. The hitmaker, who has worked with big stars like JAY-Z and Justin Timberlake, reveals he started taking OxyContin for pain stemming from a gunshot wound he suffered as a teenager in his 30s, and over 15 years he spiralled into a cycle of addiction and depression. His addiction also led to the breakdown of his marriage to Monique Idlett and financial issues. "Music is a gift and curse," he tells Rolling Stone magazine. "Once you're not popping, it plays with your mind. The pills helped block out the noise I remember JAY-Z told me one time, 'Don't do no more interviews' - because I was saying crazy s**t." Timbaland's girlfriend, Michelle, feared he would die in his sleep at the height of his addiction and he believes he did come close to death. "All I can tell you is that there was a light," he says. "I woke up trying to catch my breath, like I was underwater. But through that whole thing I saw life - I saw where I would be if I don't change, and where I could be if I did. But I thought about Michael Jackson. I didn't want to be old and taking these pills." Timbaland started on his journey to sobriety the following day and is now focusing on his health, family, and music. "I've never felt better," he continues. "I'm doing stuff I never knew I could do." "Right now, I feel like what I can do with my legacy is to give back," he adds. "Which means finding the youth of today.
