Sebastian Vettel Pushes his Name into the Title Race


What a morning and what a race. Huddled on the sofa this morning in the deary early hours I could not have anticipated how much today's race was going to change the narrative of this season. It's probably too early to discount Nico as a purely number 2 driver or Vettel

Australian Grand Prix review


Last weekend saw the return of Formula One to our screens as the 2015 season kicked off in Melbourne, Australia with changes in liveries, personnel and line-ups to beat the band. Despite only 15 starting and just 11 finishing Sunday’s curtain-raising grand prix, we still learnt a lot regarding our favourite

F1 Testing Week 2: Barcelona


The chilly Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was host to the second F1 pre-season test this weekend, with the teams looking to improve their pace over what they did in the first test in Jerez. And while the speeds increased from what they were two weeks ago the varied runs and times

F1 2015 – Wildcards: Lotus’ Driver Pairing

Lotus E e

Lotus suffered a dire 2014 campaign. The team went into the season with a lot of doubt regarding their finances, despite enjoying two race wins with Kimi Raikkonen in 2012, and a vast amount of podium appearances for himself and Romain Grosjean over their two years as teammates. In the midst

Lewis Hamilton Wins BBC Sports Personality


Lewis Hamilton has won the 2014 Sports Personality of the Year beating Rory McIlory and Jo Pavey to the title. The McLaren F1 Driver was tipped to win the title and that was confirmed on Sunday night in front of a big crowd in Glasgow. The title caps off a

The Curtain Rises On The Final Act


Here we are. Hardly believable that the end of the season is only one day away. Hard to believe that Nico/Lewis might win his first/second championship this weekend. While we all might bemoan the end of a season and sit huddled and waiting for the cold light of winter testing

New Money & New Formula 1


I originally wanted to write something here about safety in F1 and the near misses the sport has had since the death of Ratzenberger & Senna. But I can't, I don't feel right writing anything about safety in light of Bianchi's accident all I can think of is his poor

Remember Remember the other “Season to Remember”


The best season in years, it will go down to in history, a battle for the ages. A Season to Remember. The clichés abound but I do find myself asking the same question every time I hear Brundle or Eddie Jordan say one of the above banal statements; this is the
