Lewis Hamilton: ‘I’m Just Getting Started’

Lewis Hamilton F1

Lewis Hamilton has insisted that he is only just getting started after he created history at the Turkish Grand Prix, where he won a record-equalling seventh world title, drawing level with the great Michael Schumacher. Lewis Hamilton has now joined the legendary Michael Schumacher on winning 7 drivers’ championship titles, ahead of Juan Manuel Fangio (5), Alain Prost (4) and Sebastian Vettel (4). The debate has always been if Lewis Hamilton is better than Michael Schumacher; statistically, the answer would …

Formula 1s Best New Circuit

Welcome Back to The Best New Circuit of the 21st Century! For the third round in a row, next weekend’s race will take place on a circuit that was not included in recent year.

Lewis Hamilton Makes Grand Prix History in Portugal

Lewis Hamilton Makes Grand Prix History in Portugal

Lewis Hamilton wins the Portuguese Grand Prix A standing ovation from the gathered crowds at the Portuguese Grand Prix marked Lewis Hamilton’s newest entry into the history books.  As of today, he is the holder of Formula 1’s all-time win record, previously held by Michael Schumacher.  He now stands alone among the other record-breakers in the history of Formula 1. Yet it could have been very different.  Although he finished first at one point, he dropped to third place – …

Formula 1’s Curious Statistical History in Portugal

Formula 1s Curious Statistical History in Portugal

The Return of Portugal – A Country with Curious F1 Stats The Formula 1 2020 season has been unique in some ways. The intensity of doubleheaders at the same venue and having the opening eleven races in barely three months has quickly made up for the agonisingly long wait during the height of the pandemic. In other ways, it has been a case of normal service resumed; Mercedes continuing their domination of the sport has given us a sense of …

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian GP

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let’s hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win. Last race at Mugello was an exciting race. With two red flags and one horrible crash. And Ferrari 1000 celebration wasn’t the best either, but that might be because of the strict rules now during COVID 19. So I am happy they had a celebration. …

When Did Formula One Begin?

When Did Formula One Begin

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”. In order to answer the question properly we need to go back in time.  …

Tuscan GP: Previewing F1 Mugello

Tuscan GP

Race preview  This week its the 1000 race for Ferrari its a big week for the Italian team. So they changed the car’s livery and the driver’s suits. It has also been proving to be a fast circuit with many flat corners.  With only one DRS zone, this track is going to be hard to overtake other drivers. But with people who love fast cars and fast racing, this circuit is perfect for us.  Biggest Surprise  I think this weekend’s …

Why Valtteri Bottas will lose his seat 2022?

Valtteri Bottas

A big team in F1 wants to have two top-quality drivers. I don’t think both Mercedes drivers are world-class. Mercedes have won 6 world championships! One with Nico Rosberg and 5 with Lewis Hamilton. During 2017, 2018, and 2019 season Valtteri Bottas hasn’t been near Lewis Hamilton’s level. Let’s compare Valtteri Bottas and Nico Rosberg. The former world champion Nico won 9 races in 2016 alone while Valtteri hasn’t won the same amount in all those years. The truth is …

Lewis Hamilton wins British Grand Prix Despite Puncture

lewis hamilton puncture british grand prix

Lewis Hamilton and drama – the two words seem to go hand-in-hand. Today was no exception as Hamilton finished the British Grand Prix despite having a puncture in the last lap. At the half-way point the front left tyre failed on the Mercedes driver’s machine. It looked as if it was all over for him but extraordinarily he persisted and was ultimately victorious leaving Max Verstappen of Red Bull in desultory second place. As he glided over the finish line, …

Mexican Grand Prix Clips Ricciardo’s Wings

jjj e1540788530648

Today’s Grand Prix was everything an F1 race should be: overtaking, tire strategies, close calls. Exciting. Wonderful. Unless you’re a fan of poor, beleaguered Daniel Riccardo. Despite a beautiful qualifying session, where he earned the coveted Pole Position at the last minute, Daniel Ricciardo was yet again left with a DNR for the Mexico GP. Daniel has the most DNRs in fact. Sadly, eight this season. After several laps fighting off a charging Vettel with fresh tires, Daniel was overtaken …

Hungarian Grand Prix Review

hungarian grand prix f1

It was a good day for: Vettel & Ferrari Vettel showed his supreme race craft on Sunday, managing his race from the front and never looking like he would be challenged for the race victory. Even the safety car restart was executed extremely well. The Ferrari team too can be pleased with the performance of their car, which shows that the development race is crucial for top teams to begin putting some pressure on the Mercedes monopoly atop the Constructors …

Rewrite the Formula

f1

On the heels of the Le Mans 24h and the Austrian Grand Prix the news surrounding F1 is all about how the sport needs to change and what is being done for the raft of rule changes that are supposedly coming in 2017. It’s a pretty damning for the sport that spectacle, the actual racing, is at the forefront of the discussion but without anyone mentioning the races. No one is really talking about anything except what needs to be …
