News And Views From The World Of F1

CRIKEY! Number two drivers reign supreme

A podium of number two drivers, if in car number as in Hamilton’s case, or in speculated team status as with Webber and Rosberg. The 2010 British Grand Prix proved eventful and, with a great deal of off-track politics, was certainly newsworthy. After taking Vettel in the first hundred metres, Webber led to the flag [...]

Vettel begins the German dominance of the day

Sebastian Vettel led lights to flag to record an impressive victory that set the tone for the rest of the day. Only the fastest lap eluded the German today, something that even he with his love of ticking the boxes won’t mind that much. McLaren were unable to overcome the raw pace of the Red [...]

F1 Blog’s European Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions European Grand Prix 2010 Winner – Sebastien Vettel. There’s nearly no chance of overtaking in Valencia, it’ll be the nearest thing we’ve had to the opening procession in Bahrain all year so far. The race will be decided in qualifying and the Red Bull is not only fast on low fuel and fresh [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Webber conquers the Principality

We definitely learnt one thing from Monaco; when I’m left to make predictions on my own I get them all wrong. Oh, you wanted something about the racing, right, I’m on it. Even though I picked him for the championship at the beginning of the year I’d all but written off Webber and fully expected [...]

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 [...]

Button Critical Of Schumacher

Championship leader Jenson Button has surprised F1 fans, with his comments following the Spanish Grand Prix. Button has criticised Michael Schumacher for the way he passed him in to turn 1 after he had a delayed pit stop due to a clutch problem. “I didn’t really know where Michael was on the outside of me,” [...]

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. [...]
