F1 Blog’s Canadian Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions Canadian Grand Prix 2010 Winner – Jenson Button. Changeable conditions, expected rain, a fast circuit and a track that is like a cheese grater to tyres. It can only be Button. Canadian Grand Prix 2010 Pole Position – Sebastian Vettel. The low temperatures this afternoon favour the Red Bull over the McLaren and [...]

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 [...]

Vettel throws it all away

Red Bull were concerned with the pace of the McLarens, and the race showed their concerns to be justified. The gleaming silver machines were easily a match for the Red Bulls in race pace. The final race positions would be heavily influenced by the pit stops. Red Bull got it right, they covered off Hamilton [...]

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 [...]

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. [...]

The Rules of Overtaking

Overtaking, every single time a survey of F1 fans is taken it features at the top of the list. In 2010 we actually have more overtaking, but who’d have believed it. The statisticians will tell you that the Chinese Grand Prix had more overtaking than any other race in years. Sounds great until you realise [...]

McLaren weather the opposition in China

I called it. You know I love to say “I told you so” and I did. Button in changeable conditions ruled the race. From staying out on slicks when everyone else bolted for the safety of inters to the management of safety car gaps during the second restart, Button controlled his car, his tyres and [...]

F1 Blog’s China Predictions

Carrot’s Predictions Chinese Grand Prix 2010 Winner – Sebastian Vettel. Red Bull are hiding their hand in practise, the lack of time for the other teams to update and transport parts mean that the Red Bull is still the class of the field and with momentum from Malaysia I can’t see it going any other [...]

Red Bull Dominant In Malaysia

Sebastian Vettel, who’s car cost him victory in the first two races of the season, drove a fault free race to win the Malaysian Grand Prix. Vettel overtook his pole sitting team mate, Mark Webber  in to the first corner. Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg took 3rd. Lewis Hamilton drove an excellent race  from 20th on the [...]
