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, [...]

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.

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…
