Silly season over?

You’d think it would be after the avalanche of recent announcements. But this was just the initial phase. Still lots of seats up for grabs, but what has this week done to the market? First off, Michael Schumacher is going into retirement again. To be honest although I thought it was time, I wasn’t actually [...]

F1 Blog’s 2012 Season and Malaysia Predictions

  With the reduction in pre-season testing, due to the return of an in-season test, we here at F1 Blog decided to wait until after the first race to put ourselves out there and predict the season results. With Malaysia this weekend we’ve decided to combine our prediction. Let’s see how much we know. Carrot’s [...]

What Australia tells us

The long wait is over! We are back in the season of Formula 1. It’s a massive season this year, 20 races in total, the longest season ever. Jenson Button staked a firm claim to final glory at the opening race of the season today. However it’s far too early to be naming presumptive champions, [...]

So… India

I thought I’d deliberately leave my reaction to the Indian Grand Prix a couple of weeks to fully digest what happened and to gauge the reaction to the race. Both championships are decided so I won’t talk about the on track action or the points standings, instead I’ll go into the race as an event [...]

Button wins the battle, Vettel wins the war

Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Jack Brabham, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakkinen, Fernando Alonso and now Sebastian Vettel. Nine men. Nine men who will be remembered throughout the ages. It’s hard enough to win a single Formula 1 World Championship crown, harder still to win more than one and even harder still [...]

The Temple of Speed rewards the devoted

The fastest track on the F1 calender, Monza, and even with doubts over the ability of the Red Bull Racing machine to cope with the high top speeds needed, Sebastian Vettel still claimed the win. It’s now beyond all but mathematical certainty that Vettel will claim a second successive crown. It’s only where he’ll claim [...]

With half the season gone…

…there’s still half to go, to paraphrase the great Murray Walker. We’re actually over halfway through, eleven races done and only eight left, but the summer break seems like half time for everyone involved in and watching F1. So the question is, how is the season going for the teams? Therefore in current championship order, [...]

The New Sky Deal

As of next year, and potentially until 2018, you will not be able to watch half of Formula 1 races in the United Kingdom without paying for the privilege. This deal was announced yesterday to the shock of fans and many in the paddock. Teams were given no notice of the new deal, first meeting [...]

Carrot’s Team By Team Season Review: Part 1 – The New Teams

It’s now been just over three weeks since one of the closest Formula 1 season that I can remember. Everyone gotten used to the fact that Sebastian Vettel is now the World Champion? Following Euan’s excellent season review, it’s time for mine. I’ve broken mine into three distinct categories, the new entrants, the mid-field and [...]
