Tesla goes Formula One...

Handkammer takes up new job with Tesla Motors | AUTOMOTIVE news | Motorsport.com
...by hiring the best Formula One chief mechanic, Kenny Handkammer, to be Tesla's Global Director of Service Training. He has headed Michael Schumacher's and Sebastian Vettel's F1 championship campaigns. His Red Bull F1 team became famous when they set the 2013 world record pit stop that took only 1.9 seconds!

Could Tesla pare down recharging times and battery changes in similar speeds?

Obviously the next Tesla model is going to have the batteries inside the tires.

Red Bull F1 team isn't going to win any championships this season and were saying that they will walk away from F1.

Saber-rattling. Just like Ferrari often do if they're not winning.

Of course, Ferrari is Ferrari, and Red Bull is just a drinks company. I doubt it will bother too many people.
