Abu Dhabi GP 2012

Super Seven Moments of the Abu Dhabi GP 1. Celebrations from Catastrophe The race in Abu Dhabi is not one too many drivers look forward to, not vocally anyway. Considered more style over substance by many it partners Valencia as a race not to hold your breath over, however this being 2012 anything could happen, … Continue reading

Circuits in Crisis

2011 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting seasons yet. A plethora of new rules, new tyres, new drivers, new parts are all coming together this year and with so many unknowns it’s hard to call a frontrunner this early. Although a safe bet would be Red Bull, no? Or would a … Continue reading

Off Season: Let’s do the Pirelli two stop…

The final series of private Pirelli tyre tests have come to an end in Abu Dhabi. After 140,000 litres of water-soaked the track in order for valuable wet-track data could be collected, the reports have been positive. Pedro de la Rosa completed the testing in a Toyota TF109 for the new tyre supplier, and has … Continue reading

Off Season: Change Places!

If this is your first week back at work after the Christmas break, then spare a thought for the guys and girls in the PR offices across the F1 sphere. Those at Force India and Ferrari have been thrust into overtime, battling the media and the rumour mill since 2011 crashed into life. Barely into … Continue reading

The Pirelli Test

With the end of the 61st season we bid farewell to the fly-away; getting up at 5am to watch qualifying and wishing we were there (unless you were, and if so I’m extremely jealous!). We also said so long to Bridgestone. Bridgestone has been the sole tire supplier since 2007 after Michelin pulled out. Deciding not … Continue reading

411: Abu Dhabi and beyond

I say beyond as the closest race now (Bahrain) is 118 days away…so it’s would be rather prudent of me to assume that the gossip would cease altogether. In fact we are now about to get the best gossip of the year. We have officially entered the off-season (although I suspect that Red Bull are … Continue reading

Yas Marina: Race Day

So here we are. This is it. This. Is. It. No second chances; no way of regaining points in the next race, nothing else to do but race. Hard. After qualifying; it would only be a brave person to bet against Alonso. But some might be willing to…two F1 legends for example. During a great … Continue reading

Yas Marina: Qualifying

Qualification time! As you’re perfectly aware this is late (and you can reprimand me for it; I deserve it!) as I was off on a jolly; which was somewhat disappointing. Even though I made numerous promises to myself that I would resist temptation and wait until I returned to check it out. I failed big … Continue reading

Yas Marina: Free Practice 3

I do have an actual reason as to why this is later than usual…a quick sprint up to London (really bad timing I know). Believe me; I’ve been clinging to my phone all day trying to find out what’s going on. But as a reward I took myself off to the Pole Position shop on Regent’s … Continue reading

Yas Marina: Free Practice 2

I hate to inform you Alonso; but waxing your legs for cycling doesn’t give you an advantage…if you were a swimmer I would let you off. Oh, if you skim read that (shame on you) I’ll repeat it. Alonso has waxed his legs. I’ll let that sink in. Read: Alonso re-waxed and ready to race … Continue reading
