Abu Dhabi Young Drivers Test

The young drivers test is an excellent end to an exciting year; it’s for any driver that hasn’t completed more than two F1 races. A great opportunity to see the vision of the future; and for some that future comes quicker than most. Pastor Maldonado has been tipped to take over the empty seat that … 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

Yas Marina: Free Practice 1

I wake up (late…so much for saying the drivers can’t be caught napping!) to Twitter being lit alight with shock at the weather. The McLaren garage was quoted as saying that they told Hamilton not to worry about the rain. Maybe they jinxed it because everyone was squawking about the rain (which turned out to … Continue reading

Yas Marina: What You Need to Know

So here we are; the last race of the 2010 season! I know we haven’t been together for long; but I already feel we know each other well. Okay; that’s a bit too saccharine for my liking, but it’s good practice for next year. So; for the first time in F1 history we have four … Continue reading

411: From Brazil to Abu Dhabi

Right then; what has been occurring since we left Brazil only a few days ago? The Hulk: Oh yes, the rookie certainly made an impression on Brazil! Stealing pole position from the fastest cars on the track; and even managed to give both Alonso and Hamilton food for thought. His calm and poise off the … Continue reading

Interlagos: Race Day

Are we going to be crowning a new World Driver Champion today? Will Alonso make the dash from 5th and win it? Will Webber cling on and push it to Abu Dhabi? Will Vettel slip out of contention? What on earth will Hulkenberg do with his pole position? So many questions! Who ever said F1 was boring? … Continue reading
