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.

McLaren answer Red Bull’s pace in China

You are going to have to go back a long way to find a race more exciting than the 2011 Chinese Grand Prix. The most recent one I personally can think of is Brazil 2008 and that had the additional tension of a championship decider and being a rain affected race. China 2011 had no [...]
