The Webber 180°

“I’m high on confidence at the moment and firing on all cylinders.” It was only a matter of months ago that the clouds were rolling in on Mark Webber’s career, the media vultures were circling and ready to call time on what had been a somewhat interesting career. Starting out in the popular backmarker team … Continue reading

Sepang: What You Need to Know

Compared to the unrest in Bahrain and the arguments over hosting in Melbourne, the run up to the race in Malaysia seems positively boring. However this is not necessarily the case, when the race calendar was stuffed full with 20 races Malaysia was seen as the first real race, the first real challenge, and it still is … Continue reading

Albert Park: What You Need to Know

As we all know, we’re starting this season in Australia due to the civil unrest in Bahrain that started last month. A month ago today the Bahrain GP was called off officially, and the honour of being the season-opener fell into the laps of Melbourne (without the hefty fee), which may just turn their fortunes … Continue reading

411: Awards, Battles & Crashgate

I’m still in countdown mode (4 days!) but there is vital gossip to be discussed! Lotus and Renault is still being ironed out; Mark Webber’s book has hit the proverbial fan and Fernando Alonso has dedicated his face to Jenson Button.

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!).

But allow me this one discretion and I’ll wrap up the past season for you. The past is reserved for nostalgia and … 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: 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
