So… India

I thought I’d deliberately leave my reaction to the Indian Grand Prix a couple of weeks to fully digest what happened and to gauge the reaction to the race. Both championships are decided so I won’t talk about the on track action or the points standings, instead I’ll go into the race as an event [...]

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 [...]

The New Sky Deal

As of next year, and potentially until 2018, you will not be able to watch half of Formula 1 races in the United Kingdom without paying for the privilege. This deal was announced yesterday to the shock of fans and many in the paddock. Teams were given no notice of the new deal, first meeting [...]

Strategy is back in F1

While not as easy as he’d like, losing pole to Mark Webber, losing the first corner lead to Fernando Alonso and being hounded to the finish by Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel still managed to score the win in Spain today. This makes Vettel’s fourth victory in five races, meaning he’s only dropped seven points from [...]

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 [...]

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

Sebastian Vettel won the Australian Grand Prix in commanding fashion, never under threat at any point after the first 200 yards. It’s like end of the 2010 season all over again. 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

After three practice sessions we can finally start to speak definitely on how the 2011 will go. The majority of the obfuscation that’s inherent to pre-season testing is gone, although there is some sandbagging still going on before qualifying. So, what can we say? Drivers There are  countries represented in the main driver lineup this [...]

More Teams announce 2011 drivers

A number of teams have announced information on their driver roster for next season. Most notably Renault-Lotus (don’t get them mixed up with Lotus-Renault!) have decided to give Vitaly Petrov a new contract until the end of the 2012 season, despite some disappointing results in the 2010 season. Petrov did, however, manage to prevent a takeover by [...]

Carrot’s Team By Team Season Review: Part 1 – The New Teams

It’s now been just over three weeks since one of the closest Formula 1 season that I can remember. Everyone gotten used to the fact that Sebastian Vettel is now the World Champion? Following Euan’s excellent season review, it’s time for mine. I’ve broken mine into three distinct categories, the new entrants, the mid-field and [...]

Suzuka is very much a Red Bull track

A 1-2 in qualifying and the race has Red Bull extend their lead at the top of both championships after a very tiring morning for European fans. After heavy rain yesterday caused qualifying to be postponed to this morning, teams and drivers had it all to do in one day and fans had to be [...]
