Singapore Grand Prix 18-21 September 2014

Hamilton wins inaugural Russian Grand Prix

Georgy Suvorin and Willy Scholl won the first two Grands Prix held in Russia, in St Petersburg in 1913 and 1914, but today’s race around the Olympic Park in Sochi was the first since the modern world championship began in 1950. In truth, it offered arguably the least amount of spectacle of any round so […]


Lucas di Grassi wins first Formula E race

We’re off, and there’s a safety car on lap two. Unfortunately, it’s Bruno Senna, who suffers a broken rear suspension. The BMW i8 bunches the pack up for a few laps.


Nicolas Prost bags first Formula E pole

What a gob-smacking venue. Beijing’s Olympic legacy runs to a whole series of remarkable buildings.

With television viewing figures waning – in some territories at least – and disappointing box office last time out at Hockenheim, Bernie is officially worried.



It’s Rosberg with another win in Austria – can anyone stop Mercedes?

When Williams locked out the front row in yesterday’s qualifying session, it was an uplifting result for the officially plucky British squad in a week of entirely predictable misery for English football fans. Its first one-two since the German Grand Prix in 2003, it was also the first pole position Felipe Massa has managed since […]



Ricciardo wins a thriller in Montreal. Who says modern F1 is boring?

Mercedes headed into the Canadian Grand Prix chasing their sixth consecutive one-two finish, something that no team in Formula One has ever managed to nail.
