Lewis triumphs as the title race hots up in Monza

When a battle between two protagonists really starts to heat up, hubris always plays a part. In Greek tragedy, it occurs when the hero arrogantly defies the Gods, and hastens his own demise. Shakespeare loved it: King Lear, Macbeth and Hamlet all suffered from it. In Formula One, it’s when you drive like a berk […]

Monza test for Merc’s warring drivers

Well done Daniel Ricciardo. For rather obvious reasons we’ll move onto in a moment, his race victory at Spa-Francorchamps – one of F1’s premier circuits, and a favourite of many drivers, past and present – has been somewhat forgotten. His second win on the trot, and his third overall this season, he remains the only […]


Ricciardo wins Spa thriller

Well, that was some race, wasn’t it? Spa’s delicate eco-system seems to be able sniff out game time, and the heavens threatened to open moments before the lights went green.


Rosberg takes pole at Spa

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.



Rosberg wins at Hockenheim but Hamilton fightback keeps championship poised…

Rack up another German victory after last Sunday’s triumph in the football: Nico Rosberg never looked in the slightest trouble as he dominated his home Grand Prix, keeping clear of problems during an eventful afternoon at Hockenheim to lead the race from start to finish. All the thrills came from Lewis Hamilton, making up for […]



Lewis revives title hopes with a win at Silverstone

So, a fine result for the home crowd eventually at Silverstone, but only after a nervy weekend. After Lewis Hamilton’s disastrous qualifying stint that saw him start sixth on the grid, then a delayed restart to the race on lap two after a spin from Kimi Raikonnen took out a section of fence on the Wellington Straight, […]
