Thou Shalt Go Forth and Promote

Money. It makes the world go around according to Liza Minelli and Joel Grey, and it has certainly made shipping Formula One around the world, to homes and circuits, a slick affair. But to get the cheque signed a sweetner must be offered, indeed the land of sponsorship is one laden with pitfalls for Bernie … Continue reading

Formula One: One Team

“While the competition on track may be as fierce as ever, but times like these are a reminder that as a sport, we are very much a community.” When you consider Formula One as a sport it is highly apparent it is one of the most competitive fields out there, not only do you have … 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

Rookie Report 2011: Pastor Maldonado

The 25 year old driver hails from Venezuela and has gained an impressive resume, warranting his first year in Formula One to be this season. The Venezuelan driver is replacing former 2010 rookie Nico Hulkenberg at Williams, his signing has been viewed as somewhat controversial as he’s coming with substantial backing. However if you look … Continue reading

Off Season: F1 Facial Fuzz

I’ve been in the midst of a full-blown beard debate with regards to the current crop of F1 drivers many times over the last season. The off-season seems the only time during the year that the drivers get close to ‘letting it all hang out’, ‘it’ seems to be facial hair. Some make an early … Continue reading

411: Drivers & Teams 2011

Hope you’re coping well with the weather; trudging to work in the snow is not my favourite thing to do first thing in the morning. But once I returned home (through the sludge…snow is depressing once it’s walked on don’t you think?) I found the first sign of spring… FIA announce provisional 2011 entry list: … 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

The Season: 2010

The dust has barely set in Abu Dhabi and there’s already talk of the 2011 season. It’s 16 weeks away; but that’s Formula One for you. This is a sport that lives in the future. 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
