For many car enthusiasts, the Autobahn is viewed as motoring nirvana, but things can turn from sweet to sour in the blink of an eye, as this video shows.

This clip was filmed from the helmet camera being used by the driver of a BMW M4 and shows him hitting speeds of around 174 mph (280 km/h). At the 15-second mark, the BMW driver is quite late to brake to avoid a slow-moving hatchback in the fast lane but when it gets out of the way, he quickly hits the throttle once again and starts to accelerate to over 167 mph (270 km/h).

However, at the 48-second mark of the clip, a maroon-colored Mazda3 changes into the fast lane to overtake a Ford Fiesta, crossing directly into the path of the BMW.

The M4 driver is forced to slam on the brakes to avoid rear-ending the Mazda and apparently managed to slow from 174 mph to 87 mph (140 km/h) in just a few seconds. Had the BMW driver been a little later to react or had the Mazda driver made the lane change a touch later, the two might have collided and the results may have been devastating.

One could say that the driver of the Mazda is primarily to blame for the near-miss. Changing into the fast lane of the Autobahn isn’t something you should ever do without getting a good look at your mirrors to ensure there is no fast-moving traffic behind you. The M4 driver should have also been more careful and perhaps lifted off the throttle while passing slower traffic.

 


The merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Groupe PSA cleared one of its final hurdles earlier this month, but the companies are now facing a last minute objection from Walter P. Chrysler’s great-grandson.

As part of his alternative buyout proposal, Frank B. Rhodes Jr suggests the merged entity not adopt the widely mocked Stellantis name. Instead, he proposes the automaker become known as the “Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram Corporation.”

On top of that, Rhodes wants the company to be headquartered in the United States. His proposal also calls for giving existing management and employees a retention bonus, based on tenure. Furthermore, the proposal says that in “addition to a cash price to be negotiated, and [a] payoff of all existing debt, existing stockholders would receive rights to acquire shares in the buyer entity if it was taken public in the future.”

In a statement, Rhodes said “This alternative proposal is, in my opinion, superior to the planned merger and would result in the return to the United States of the Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep-Ram brands and away from the proposed Chinese, and foreign control as proposed in the merger.”

While the proposal has little chance of gaining traction, Rhodes filed an objection to the Stellantis merger with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States. He is also advising U.S. Senators oppose the merger as it would “remove future profits and technologies from America.”

The last-ditch effort will likely amount to nothing as shareholders are set to approve the merger on January 4th. Following that, the deal should be completed by the end of the first quarter of 2021.

As if seven world championships and a piece of Silverstone named after him weren’t enough, it seems F1 driver Lewis Hamilton will be receiving another honor for his achievements, this time in the form of knighthood.

It should be noted that five other figures in Formula 1 have been knighted at some point or another, but they had all received the honor after they retired, something that Hamilton doesn’t appear to be doing given all the talks about his contract negotiations with Mercedes.

There have been talks of Hamilton receiving his knighthood for quite some time, but it was always stalled due to the Brit claiming residency in Monaco for tax reasons. That has just changed, however, as British prime minister Boris Johnson wants to make an exception for Hamilton so as to allow him to participate in this year’s New Year Honors. The loophole would involve Johnson marking Hamilton on the “Diplomatic and Overseas List” to avoid any controversy.

After his first championship win in 2008, Hamilton got an MBE, which recognizes “people who have given exceptional service to the UK abroad and internationally”. Now, Hamilton will be the sixth person in Formula 1 to receive knighthood status, along with drivers Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, and Sir Jack Brabham, as well as Williams co-founders Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head. He will also be the first sportsman to receive his knighthood under the “Overseas” list.
