Where Your Car Is Most Likely to Be Stolen in Every State Motor vehicle theft in the United States in 2017 remained effectively unchanged from 2016, when the rate increased by nearly 7%. Last year, there were 773,139 motor vehicle thefts across the country, a rate of 237.4 per 100,000 residents. Of course, where you live can greatly increase or decrease the chances of your car getting stolen. 24/7 Wall St. determined the city in every state where your car is most likely to be stolen based on data from the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The city with the highest rate of car thefts in a state is not necessarily the city with the poorest community or with the biggest crime problems.

Louis Deletraz says Haas "sees his potential" after handing him his first test in a current Formula 1 car at the 2018 Pirelli tyre test following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The 21-year-old Swiss is competing in Formula 2 this year with the Charouz Racing System team and he lies 11th in the standings in his second year in the series.

In-n-Out Burger & Hot Rod Share a 70th Anniversary

In-n-Out Burger & Hot Rod Share a 70th Anniversary When So-Cal natives In-N-Out Burger Company teamed up with the equally-iconic Hot Rod magazine to celebrate their 70th anniversaries, it was a shindig that just couldn't be missed. Held as a one-day event at the famous Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in California (where the NHRA holds both its annual Winternationals competition as well as the NHRA Finals), it was the first time the two companies teamed up to produce a show and, by all accounts, the overwhelming response took everyone by surprise.

Louis Deletraz says Haas " sees his potential " after handing him his first test in a current Formula 1 car at the 2018 Pirelli tyre test following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix . Haas announced Deletraz would drive in the second day of the post-season test in its VF-18 car .

Louis continued to hone his skills with eight appearances in the ADAC GT Masters and got his first taste of F2 competition with a confident one -off appearance at the last round of the season in Abu Dhabi .

Haas announced Deletraz would drive in the second day of the post-season test in its VF-18 car.

He could become attractive to F1 teams in the future given his wealthy number of 42 superlicense points.

"[Team owner] Gene Haas, [team principal] Gunther Steiner are sports people and they have a good mentality," Deletraz, the son of ex-F1 racer Jean-Denis, told Motorsport.com.

"I think they like the challenge and they see potential in me, they are happy to test me and to see the result and where we can go after that.

"I think Haas has a really good car, they are one of the first teams outside of the top three, so it's something [a deal] we've worked on for a while.

"The key thing here is I have 42 superlicense points so I am available for it. To validate that you have to do an F1 test."

Kubica's 2019 F1 return pleases a relieved Hamilton

Kubica's 2019 F1 return pleases a relieved Hamilton Robert Kubica's return to Formula One is something of a relief for world champion Lewis Hamilton. The 33-year-old Kubica announced on Thursday he will be racing for the Williams team next year, a remarkable comeback considering Kubica almost lost his right hand in a rally accident in 2011. ''Is Robert older than me?'' Hamilton joked at a news conference. When informed Kubica is indeed older than Hamilton, by one month, Hamilton beamed a smile. ''I'm so glad he's coming back. I was going to be the second oldest driver, but now I'm going to be the third,'' Hamilton said.

28 at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi . KANNAPOLIS, North Carolina (Nov. 01, 2018 ) – Swiss driver Louis Delétraz will pilot a Formula One car for the first 9-11, and Abu Dhabi Grand Prix , Nov. 23-25, embedded with Haas F 1 Team familiarizing himself with team personnel and operations.

Louis Deletraz says Haas " sees his potential " after handing him his first test in a current Formula 1 car at the 2018 Pirelli tyre test following the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix . The 21-year-old Swiss is competing in Formula 2 this year with the Charouz Racing System team and he lies 11th in the

Deletraz admitted an F1 chance next year might be too early but is working on finding a seat as soon as possible.

He hopes the test will show that he is ready for the graduation.

"I hope that's the next step [F1], next year might be too early, all the seats are taken, but F1 is still the goal. The first step is with testing.

"The main focus will be for me to learn the processes of F1 and the car and to be as quick as possible, so that when I am in the car I will be able to be quick and give proper feedback.

"It's a 2019 tyre test so it's not only about me but about the team.

"Of course I want to show my potential and speed, but it's also about working with the whole team, teams are much bigger in F1 and its about data for them as well.

"They trust me to get in the car and do a good job, and I will learn as much as I can on the day and do my best to help them move forward."

Deletraz would likely be higher in the F2 standings, but was the innocent party in accidents during two of the first three rounds of the season, and a technical issue had hampered his progress in the Bahrain opener.

He didn't score points until the fourth round at Monaco where he delivered one of the drives of the season in the sprint race and held off a charging Artem Markelov.

Deletraz was intermittently unable to change down gears due to an electrical issue and took second in the race when Lando Norris was demoted for a virtual safety car infringement.

The Charouz driver topped the F2 post-season test's opening day at Abu Dhabi in 2017 and was third quickest over the three-day test.
