Liveblog: Canadian Grand Prix

All set for the Canadian Grand Prix. This looks set to be an interesting race, but there are worries about the tarmac breaking up on the circuit. There will be a lot to keep on top of. All the more reason to get involved in the liveblog. I will also be updating Twitter. Visit F1Fanatic […]

Here is the liveblog for today’s qualifying session. Unfortunately I won’t be around to take part because I will be at work. 🙁 However, do feel free to take part below. Visit F1Fanatic for the FAQ and other bits and pieces.

ITV F1 wins another Bafta — they must be clueless

ITV F1 have won their second Baftas in two years. For the many non-British readers of this blog, the Baftas are the most prestigious television awards in the country — our equivalent of the Emmys.

F1 season review: the frontrunners

This is part two of my series of posts reviewing the F1 season gone by. Last week I wrote about F1’s backmarkers. This week: my top 13 drivers. 13 — Alexander Wurz When Alexander Wurz burst onto the scene in 1997, he was talked about as a hot prospect. I’d say he was the Nico […]

F1 on the up

The highly exciting season means that Formula 1 audiences are on the up, particularly in the UK where ITV1’s coverage of the Canadian Grand Prix was up 50% on last year!

2005 Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix

Another great race! Perhaps not the best race in terms of racing, but it was certainly incident-packed. You wouldn’t expect anything else from the Gilles Villeneuve Circuit though. Like qualifying, the race result was a wee bit skewed, with both Ferraris on the podium, Massa grabbing fourth place and Webber aswell as both Red Bulls […]


I usually reserve any comments I may have about qualifying until after the race, but today’s times are just too weird. There really is no shortage of talking points this season, and every time you think things are beginning to settle down, everything changes again. I mean, Button on pole? I knew he was going […]
