Istanbul Park: Free Practice 1 & 2

Despite the inevitability of new tyre compounds being tested today, gossip and rumour definitely surrounded who will be where in 2012. Commentators, journalists and fans have all been speculating over where certain drivers will be next year, regardless of whether they have a contract or not. Drivers in focus are Nico Rosberg, Paul di Resta, … Continue reading

411: Is there a doctor in the house?

Maybe this post should be categorised under 911, instead of 411. We haven’t even finished the winter testing schedule yet, but already this year seems to be under considerable strain, will this rocky start be indicative of the season to come? Endless waiting is not helped by endless obstacles. I know we like a good … Continue reading

Because You’re Worth It!

We had a look at Formula One beards last year, and this insight into that crop of facial fuzz has coincided a seemingly unstoppable interest into what drivers wear on their chins. It’s gotten so big it’s left the realms of the internet and reached out into reality, #F1BEARDWATCH has been out on tour and … Continue reading

411: Drivers & Teams 2011

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

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
