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. […]

The World Council decides

Well, it was a nervous day to be a Formula 1 fan. But it turned out to be not as bad as I had expected. The Michelin teams were found: guilty of failing to ensure that they were in possession of suitable tyres for the 2005 US Grand Prix; but with strong, mitigating circumstances This […]

Michelin responds

Edouard Michelin, the Michelin (boss) man, has written an angry letter to Max Mosley. Over the last days, you have repeatedly blamed us in the press, directly or indirectly. Will you at least recognize publicly that we have taken a courageous, honest and transparent stance for the safety of the pilots? I hope you will […]

Mosley on tyres

Here’s what Max Mosley said about tyres after this year’s European Grand Prix. If you are in any doubt about your car, you should always call it in. If you are still in doubt after checking the car in the pits, you should retire it from the race. That’s exactly what Michelin did on Sunday. […]

My brother just suggested Cosworths! Hahahahah! Toyota is more likely though — supplying three teams would be a real stretch though! Meanwhile, comes up […]

Morbid curiosity

Morbid curiosity? ITV1’s ratings for the United States Grand Prix were good — only slightly down from the Canadian Grand Prix, peaking at almost 6 million viewers. You have to say, it’s certainly got people talking about F1…

2005 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix

This is my fourth post in a row about Formula 1, but I’m not apologising for that. Well, that was … comical, embarassing, farcical, suicidal. There are any number of words you could use, but none of them refer to the racing because there wasn’t any. It’s difficult to know what to say. We knew […]

The death of F1 in America

I am not in the least bit surprised to find out that Ferrari are the only ones who are holding things up. The nine other teams — including the other Bridgestone runners — have agreed to race if a chicane is put in. Ferrari’s policy has been to put lives at risk today for the […]
