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 […]

The most biased article about Lewis Hamilton I have ever read

And that’s saying something! And would you credit it, it was by ITV-F1. WHY LEWIS IS TAKING THE FLAK, the headline screams, stomping its feet. The article by Mark Hughes (who is normally one of the more sensible ITV-F1 people) starts as it means to go on, by taking a true event and completely twisting […]

Slow but steady wins the race for Räikkönen

Sorry! Very late once again. Very busy weekend once again. I’m actually staying up well past my bedtime to write this post. (And not because I’m waiting to see if In Rainbows is released this evening, oh no!) Anyway, the Chinese Grand Prix was just the sort of classic race that reminds you why you […]

Why F1 is in such a mess

Despite what I have written about Lewis Hamilton’s actions behind the Safety Car over the past couple of days, I think the FIA’s decision was the correct one (it’s not often I say that!). Hamilton broke the rules, but it was not the sort of thing that merited a serious punishment. A slap on the […]

Now Webber’s quote takes on a new meaning

Remember Mark Webber’s controversial interview on ITV after his retirement at the Japanese Grand Prix? It’s kids, isn’t it. It’s kids with not enough experience, and they just go and fuck it all up! At the time, most people — myself included — thought that he was referring to Sebastian Vettel. But my brother brought […]

Too many thoughts on Fuji

Firstly — apologies for the lateness of my review of the Japanese Grand Prix. Another busy weekend spilled over into Monday, and is spilling over into Tuesday and Wednesday as well. (I am being very naughty by writing this post.) There are so many talking points that it is difficult to know where to start. […]

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 Chinese Grand Prix

An entertaining race, well worth getting up at 6am for. Even if it’s zombified me for the rest of the day. It seemed as though Renault were going to walk away with it today. With the changeable conditions, the Michelins were clearly coping better in the wet. At least that was the case in qualifying. […]

Mad Max’s stupid survey

Hello, my name is Max Mosley. Please will you take my bullshit survey? I will be able to twist it out of shape and use it as justification for my many ridiculous rule changes, such as making engines last for 200 years at a time and making drivers qualify whilst standing on their heads. I […]
