Hamilton returns to form in Abu Dhabi

With Sebastian Vettel suffering his first piece of bad luck all season, Lewis Hamilton rose the occasion and seized the opportunity to remind the world of just how fast he can be. The race also underlined the reason for changes at the Yas Island circuit if there’s to be any real racing in years to [...]

Korea confirms Red Bull as Constructors’ Champions

It was inevitable really, after the season we’ve had and the fact that Sebastian Vettel  was crowned so early. By outscoring McLaren today, Red Bull have put the Constructors’ Championship beyond mathematical contention. It’s back-to-back double championships for the team created by a drinks company, taking on titans of this sport like McLaren and Ferrari [...]

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 [...]

Vettel flawless, but still not crowned

Racing in the dark, under the lights, at Singapore always looks extremely pretty. The cars shine and dazzle the cameras and new crash helmets are brought specifically.

The Temple of Speed rewards the devoted

A traditional result, but not a boring race in Spa

Spa. I love Spa. I’d even put some other adjectives in there if this place wasn’t suitable for children. It’s a glorious race track, with history, excitement and no shortage of overtaking. Who says you need changeable conditions to overtake in Formula 1? I present Spa, all the races before and today’s as Exhibit A. [...]

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, [...]

Jenson Button, the new Regenmeister

A wet race and Jenson Button wins, you’re so shocked aren’t you? Ayrton Senna, Rubens Barrichello and most famously Michael Schumacher have all been dubbed ‘Rain Master’ by the press, Button’s long overdue. It was an exciting race this afternoon, with five drivers looking like they could come through and win during the race depending [...]

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 [...]
