The new podcast to listen to

I will write about the Ferrari issue soon. But before that I just want to put up a quick post about a podcast. Several times last year, I enthused about The Inside Line podcast, which featured Maurice Hamilton and Ian Phillips. It was without doubt the most insightful podcast around. There was nothing like it […]

BBC announces plans for 2009 F1 coverage

Today the BBC has announced further details of its F1 coverage, which will start in just a month’s time. We already knew who would be presenting the BBC’s F1 coverage, but today we have found out more about just what the BBC will be offering the viewers this season. Television coverage The BBC have released […]

Off-season bits and bobs

I’ve been a bit busy lately so I’ve been falling behind a bit on the posting front. I’ve not even got all of my 2008 season review posts out of the way, and before I knew it the 2009 season had begun in the form of testing at Barcelona! But there is plenty of time […]

Adam and Joe: the best programme on radio?

I’ve had a busy week. I’ve not blogged here for a week so I’ll ease into this. No heavy politics stuff. Here goes. Do you listen to the Adam and Joe radio show on BBC 6 Music? If not, you should. Why? Well, this programme has single-handedly made me do two things I would probably […]

More complaints from teams about FIA-supplied equipment

The Belgian Grand Prix was frustrating not just because of the stewards’ decision to penalise Lewis Hamilton, but because for almost all of the race the indispensable Live Timing was not working. Live Timing is without doubt the best feature of Bernie’s website. And like many of life’s great things, you never realise how much […]

Renault’s pit stop calls

I have done so much blogging about that incident that I still haven’t got round to writing a full race review of Belgium yet, which I feel I should do. So that will have to wait until after the Italian Grand Prix. In the meantime, I have just listened to the post-Belgium Renault podcast. As […]

Another opinion on the incident

Several times on this blog I have recommended The Inside Line podcast with Maurice Hamilton and Ian Phillips. As always, it came up with the goods following the Belgian Grand Prix. Ian Phillips gave his opinion on the incident where Lewis Hamilton cut the chicane. For those that don’t know, Ian Phillips is Director of […]

White Elephants and Ridiculous Asses

It’s loathsome and it comes around once every four years. No, I’m not talking about the Olympics. I’m on about American politics. A lot of people get themselves really jazzed with American politics. I mean, I get it — the President of the USA is an important person, so it’s good to keep up with […]

The disappointment of Valencia shows that fans have been forgotten

I’ve been thinking a bit about the recent European Grand Prix. Almost universally, Formula 1 fans have expressed their disappointment in what was — even by F1’s standards — an incredibly boring race. However, equally universally, those who are lucky enough to live in the Formula 1 bubble were effusive in their praise of the […]
