News And Views From The World Of F1

Spying on Mark Webber

F1 intrigue isn’t like the world of James Bond, but we do have our spies everywhere. They search for the latest tweaks to the cars, look in on secretive contract negotiations and very occasionally they get a few minutes to interrogate… I mean interview one of the drivers. This interview with Red Bull Racing’s Mark [...]

Zanardi takes Gold!

Former F1 race driver Alex Zanardi took first place and a gold medal today in the men’s time trial H4 handcycle event at the 2012 Paralympic Games. Zanardi crossed the line at Brands Hatch, the events was held both on track and on the surrounding local roads of the historic track, over 25 seconds ahead [...]

Belgium comes good yet again

No matter what the content of the season, whether it’s close and gripping like this year or as processional as an Armistice Day parade, Spa always delivers an excellent race and this year was no exception.

Alonso breaks the cycle in Valencia

I’m not sure what’s more surprising about this season, Fernando Alonso being the first driver to take two victories, or that we had seven different winners in the first seven races. Remember back in Australia when McLaren had a car advantage that could be measured in geological time? What happened to that? Remember how pathetic [...]
