Is Formula One broken? Don’t be daft…

Formula One’s ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone called an emergency meeting with the team principals minutes before qualifying for the Hungarian GP began on Saturday lunchtime. 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.

Catching up with old friend Cameron Diaz in Monaco…

Cameron Diaz has just arrived in Monaco from New York, and having spent most of the day on TAG Heuer’s enormo-yacht, she ’fesses straight up to feeling a bit woozy. ‘I can’t even remember my own name,’ she says with a giggle.

TG.com at the 2013 McLaren F1 launch – what did we learn?

Various seasoned F1 observers had a good old poke and prod at the MP4/28 McLaren launched today at its Technology Centre. ‘Hmm’, they murmured authoritatively, and ‘ah, interesting’, while everyone else tried really hard to work out how 2013’s car differed from last year’s fast but erratic charger.
