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. Let’s forget promoter’s fees and all the money associated with F1, for as long as this circuit is able [...]

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, [...]

2012 News Round-up

A great deal of news has come out on the 2012 season in the last few weeks. Most importantly, the first official driver list has been published by the teams, although it is still somewhat incomplete.

Korea confirms Red Bull as Constructors’ Champions

It was inevitable really, after the season we’ve had and the fact that Sebastian VettelĀ  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 [...]

The Temple of Speed rewards the devoted

The fastest track on the F1 calender, Monza, and even with doubts over the ability of the Red Bull Racing machine to cope with the high top speeds needed, Sebastian Vettel still claimed the win. It’s now beyond all but mathematical certainty that Vettel will claim a second successive crown. It’s only where he’ll claim [...]

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 [...]

Silverstone shows more than one chink in Red Bull’s armour

Red Bull are dominant and some people are calling the season boring – everything always seems to change at Silverstone, doesn’t it? The entire weekend in the paddock was spent politicking over the off throttle blown diffuser restrictions with Renault and then Mercedes both being given certain latitudes due to reliability issues. Eventually some sort [...]
