Vettel Must Learn to Control his Temper if he’s to Win Another Title

Sebastian Vettel was pretty close to a race ban when he allowed his temper to get the better of him and deliberately drove into the side of Lewis Hamilton at the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix. But that dangerous start at Singapore was completely unprofessional, aggressive and unnecessary. It wasn’t that long ago that Roman Grosjean received […]

The FiA should do More to Recruit Women into Formula One

As an avid Formula One fan I’m always disappointing by the lack of women in the sport, in particular women in senior roles. Whilst the F1 paddock is dominated by men, women are (generally) left to ‘stand around and look pretty’ and very few are given jobs which seem them involved in the day-to-day running […]

Helmut Marko threatens to leave Formula 1…again

Ever since he realised that Red Bull were going to struggle for years to compete with Mercedes, Helmut Marko has been threatening to leave Formula 1. Another year, another threat, because although the Red Bull chassis is excellent the customer Renault engine is crap. It all started to go wrong in 2013 when a dominant […]

Why this Hamilton fan is sad to see Nico Rosberg retire from Formula One

As Nico Rosberg announced his retirement form Formula One, it left this Lewis Hamilton supporter sad to see Rosberg leave the sport. Frankly, it should leave all F1 fans slightly depressed to see a talented World Champion retire from the sport while still relatively young; especially as there appears to be no other available driver […]

The British Press should stop trying to discredit Nico Rosberg

As the 2016 F1 season rapidly draws to an end, there’s suddenly an air of superiority from biased British fans of Lewis Hamilton. It’s been suggested that Nico Rosberg isn’t worth of being World Champion because Hamilton has suffered reliability issues, and I say the British Press should stop trying to discredit Nico Rosberg immediately.

Lewis Hamilton accuses Mercedes of sabotage as another engine fails

Lewis Hamilton looked set to win the 2016 Malaysia Grand Prix, until yet another engine failed on the World Champion, leaving the driver’s chance of clinching another world championship looking even more distant. Hamilton, who has had more than his fair share of engine reliability issues this season, was clearly despondent about the failure of […]

F1 Safety Car Starts spoil races

F1 Safety Car Starts spoil races

F1 Safety Car Starts can completely ruin races. A couple of months on from the 2016 Silverstone Grand Prix, a race which was spoilt by the Safety Car start, I’m still left dissapointed. The FIA regulation says: “In exceptional circumstances, such as in extremely poor weather, a race may begin behind the safety car, which […]

London Grand Prix could see circuit pass Big Ben, London Eye and Buckingham Palace

Bernie Ecclestone’s recent announcement that a London Grand Prix street race could take place as early as 2017 has got British F1 fans in a bit of a flap, and although the glass half empty brigade are saying it’s impossible, many others are already starting to predict were the circuit could be placed. Including me […]
