Max Must Go

Nobody has confidence in the FIA

A full race review will come later. But I have to talk about the stewards’ investigation because it is so pressing. I was hoping — as was everyone else who loves sport — that the World Championship would be decided on the track. I was hoping that there would be no irregularities found after the […]

I am fed up with the power-crazy FIA’s interfering

I have really had enough. Formula 1 is being ruined by a ridiculously Byzantine rule book, political in-fighting, inconsistent penalty decisions, nonsensical posturing and the power-crazy FIA President responsible for it all. It seems to me as though the FIA is increasingly determined to stick its nose in everything, constantly bossing the teams and bosses […]

The FIA: Not only corrupt, but incompetent as well

The FIA (that’s short for Ferrari International Aid, in the words of Max Mosley himself!!) yesterday released transcripts of the World Motor Sport Council meeting where McLaren were fined one hundered meellion beellion treelion dollars about £15m. The FIA promised that an confidential information would be removed from the documents before being published. Well, they […]

2006 Japanese Grand Prix

This year’s Japanese Grand Prix left be absolutely floored. To think how boring this season started off being. Fernando Alonso totally dominated the first half of the season. Up until Canada (round 9) Alonso had finished either first or second in every single race, including a run of four back-to-back victories. His championship lead was […]

2006 Italian Grand Prix

Well the Grand Prix itself has been overshadowed by the announcement that Michael Schumacher is going to retire from motor racing at the end of this season. As expected, Kimi Räikkönen and Felipe Massa have been announced as Ferrari’s drivers for next season. It was a good time for Schumacher to announce his retirement, having […]

They don’t call it Formula One for nothing

So the FIA seems to have got its way in terms of the controversial ‘engine freeze’ proposal. For those of you who don’t follow the politics of F1 too closely (and I don’t blame you), the FIA want to ban engine development. Teams will have to use the same engines race after race — not […]

Cheating Ferrari strike again

Michael Schumacher — not brave enough to let anybody else get a lap in. And of course, because it’s Ferrari, the authorities will turn a blind eye. Update: “Schumacher takes ignominious pole.” Schumacher Takes Controversial Monaco Pole: Schumacher has been guilty of these sort of tactics in the past, and his demeanour in the press […]

NOTICE: Feeds and URLs may change

I’m posting this in every single category to make sure everybody who might need this gets it. I’ve decided that my categories are a mess, and tomorrow I’m going to attempt to clean them up a bit. I’ll be creating new categories, deleting rubbish old ones, and changing where they go. Some posts might end […]

Friesacher to go?

Well, it seems to happen at least once a year, so it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to learn that Patrick Friesacher is struggling to find the money to keep him in that Minardi car. Possibly the least impressive driver of the year; Minardi probably won’t be too unhappy to see him go. […]

Still keeping up?

Okay, so now apparently the Michelin teams aren’t guilty of anything. “New evidence” has come up pointing out that the teams were obliged to follow Michelin’s safety advice, and therefore were not at fault. Except everybody knew that all the time, so goodness knows what the FIA are up to. I’ve given up trying to […]
