A record breaking Monaco…

…but not what I’d call a classic. It was the closest finish in Monaco history and resulted in the sixth different driver of the year taking the laurels. However the racing wasn’t lap by lap tension, it seemed to a race driven by the pit wall strategists rather than the drivers giving us everything. Mark [...]

F1 Blog’s Monaco Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions Monaco Grand Prix 2012 Winner – Kimi Raikkonen Monaco Grand Prix 2012 Pole Position – Lewis Hamilton Monaco Grand Prix 2012 Fastest Lap – Lewis Hamilton The McLaren should still be the class of the field, hence why I’m picking Hamilton for pole and fastest lap.

Spain makes five

I have watched Formula 1 religiously for nearly two decades now, and I cannot remember a season as mixed up or unpredictable as 2012. We have had five races this year, five different teams have supplied the winning car and five different drivers have stood on the top step of the podium. Three former world [...]

Carrot’s Predictions Spanish Grand Prix 2012 Winner – Jenson Button Spanish Grand Prix 2012 Pole Position – Fernando Alonso Spanish Grand Prix 2012 Fastest Lap – Fernando Alonso After the return of in-season testing Ferrari have certainly upped their game, and Alonso will want to impress in front of his home crowd.

Bahrain gives us more questions than answers

Four races. Four winners. Four different teams. 2012 is nothing like the runaway dominance we had last year. Bahrain was the last of the early flyaway races, so where are we as the European season begins to dawn? Well, your guess is as good as mine. If you asked me to remake my full season [...]

Rosberg’s been producing excellent one lap pace in free practice, but the heat of the desert [...]

China 2012 – The Modern Classic

This was a race that will be remembered. It had something for every fan, the first half was for the armchair tacticians working out degradation and pit stop strategy in their heads and the second half is for the fans of raw ontrack overtaking. Add in a first time winner and no ontrack controversy and [...]

F1 Blog’s Chinese Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions Chinese Grand Prix 2012 Winner – Jenson Button Chinese Grand Prix 2012 Pole Position – Jenson Button Chinese Grand Prix 2012 Fastest Lap – Lewis Hamilton It’s not very imaginative, I admit, to go for the current front running car but it’ll probably be accurate. With Hamilton due to take a five place [...]

The rain mixes things up in Malaysia

Just when most of us had written off Ferrari for the year, Fernando capitalises on the conditions and reminds us why many consider him the best single driver on the grid. The pace of the McLarens couldn’t handle the changeable conditions and the Red Bulls couldn’t come good so it was left for the the [...]
