  • Afghans leaving Pakistan after expulsion order 'have nothing to return to', NGO says

    It's estimated that nearly 300,000 Afghan migrants have fled Pakistan since the start of October. This comes after the Pakistani government announced that the 1.7 million Afghans it says are living illegally in the country had just one month to leave. The decision has left thousands of Afghans, some of whom had been living in Pakistan for years, forced to flee or face deportation. Since the deadline to leave expired a week ago, NGOs are beginning to report the first forced deportations. In Perspective, we spoke to Manon Radosta from the Danish Refugee Council in Kabul.

  • Ferrari 499P - The Hypercar to return to World Endurance Championship elite class

    499P is the name of the new Le Mans Hypercar with which Ferrari will tackle the FIA WEC World Endurance Championship in the elite class from 2023, a name evoking the history of the Prancing Horse manufacturer. In the past, prototypes were identified by the letter ‘P’, frequently preceded by the number of the engine’s unitary displacement. The 499P is no exception. The car is an outcome of a vision proudly rooted in the past, that gave rise to the legend of today, enabling the company to achieve 22 world titles and 9 overall wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Nevertheless, it has its sights set firmly on the future, both in terms of the technical and design content that the prototype features. The livery, with which the 499P will debut at the forthcoming 1000 Miles of Sebring, includes a revived version of the renowned 312 P colour scheme from the 1970s, which also visually underscores the historical connections interrupted 50 years ago, but that have remained ever present in the brand’s essence. For this reason, one of the Maranello-entered endurance cars will be adorned with the number 50, while the other will bear the number 51, one of the most successful ever. The official line-up of who will race the #499p will be the subject of future communications.
