News And Views From The World Of F1

Now The Dust Has Settled….

I thought I would give it a few days before adding my thoughts on the Ferrari team orders controversy. I don’t think any F1 fan has an issue with a driver moving over to help his team mate win the world championship once the maths mean he can no longer do it himself. In 2007 [...]

McLaren begin to steamroller the field

Overcoming Red Bull’s superior strategy and maintaining better reliability than the Austrian team, as well as having both cars take Fernando Alonso on track, McLaren delivered their third 1-2 finish of the season in Canada. Running their own race they managed to capitalise on their strengths and dominate the rest of the field in a [...]

Silly Season is Cancelled

Last year we had Alonso’s super-secret move to Ferrari, the late speculation of the second McLaren and Brawn (subsequently Mercedes GP) second cockpits and the whole slew of new entries and whether or not they’d even make it. Silly Season, the tradition of media and pub based guess work over the destinations of drivers (and [...]

Vettel throws it all away

Red Bull were concerned with the pace of the McLarens, and the race showed their concerns to be justified. The gleaming silver machines were easily a match for the Red Bulls in race pace. The final race positions would be heavily influenced by the pit stops. Red Bull got it right, they covered off Hamilton [...]

Why David Coulthard is an idiot

Just a quick piece about this before the Turkish event gets going tomorrow…. I’m not referring to his spinning in the pit lane, or his spinning on a warm up lap, or even slowing down in dumb places causing Schumacher to run into the back of him. I’m referring to the comments he made immediately [...]

F1 Blog’s Monaco Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions Monaco Grand Prix 2010 Winner – Jenson Button. My spies (read the BBC weather forecast) tell me it’s supposed to be dry on race day, I’m not convinced. I reckon we’ll have changeable conditions and there’s no-one better on the 2010 grid when the weather’s being annoying than Jense. Monaco Grand Prix 2010 [...]

Weekend of Webber

We predicted Vettel. The general media predicted Vettel. People in the paddock were predicting Vettel. Webber, however, rolled up and quietly dominated the entire weekend. From taking the pole on Saturday with a better drive through the final chicane to his stroll away from the pack on Sunday afternoon the Aussie was untouchable in Spain. [...]

Alonso Wins – But New Rules Haven’t Improved The Show

Fernando Alonso won the Bahrain GP today, with his team mate Felipe Massa in second giving Ferrari the perfect start to the season. Lewis Hamilton was third and Pole sitter Vettel finished fourth after his Red Bull suffered an electrical problem with the engine, caused by a faulty spark plug. 2010 has seen a host of new [...]
