Rosberg beats Hamilton to Bahrain pole

Formula Mercedes put on a pretty good show on Saturday afternoon in what must surely now rank as the strangest venue at which F1 cars have ever performed.

This is what happens at the Goodwood Revivial

Inspired by our recent jaunt to the frankly spectacular Goodwood Members Meeting (basically Britain’s greatest car club), we’ve been sucked into a time-wasting lunch hour reverie, watching footage from the public equivalent: the tweed-heavy, Castrol20W/50 fugged Goodwood Revival.

We’re back! Rosberg takes the win in Australia as F1 enters a new era…

For six hours today, F1 made just about the perfect start to its new hybrid ‘green’ era. A good race — not a great one, but good one certainly — with plenty of drama, lots of new faces and a dominant winner that wasn’t driving a Red Bull. To see Mercedes’Nico Rosberg surrounded by Daniel Ricciardo and Kevin Magnussen (making their debuts […]
