News And Views From The World Of F1

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 [...]

Belgium comes good yet again

No matter what the content of the season, whether it’s close and gripping like this year or as processional as an Armistice Day parade, Spa always delivers an excellent race and this year was no exception.

Has anyone told Red Bull and Vettel that 2011 is a new season?

The story of the weekend is the continued dominance of Red Bull and Vettel, with ominous signs for the rest of the field should [...]

The 2011 Grid
