Button goes fastest on day two at Jerez

Jenson Button and McLaren were fastest on the second of just 12 short days of testing before the F1 teams have to race what are clearly their mind-numbingly complex new hybrids. And if that wasn’t enough to re-spark your interest in F1, then guess whose name was at the bottom of the timing sheets? Yeah, Sebastian Vettel, […]

More at F1 testing in Jerez as this year’s cars make their debut

Aero? Performance? Efficiency? All key factors as the 2014 Formula One season stirs for the first time at the inaugural test session in Jerez. But with just two hours gone, the emphasis is on one thing and one thing only: reliability.


Rolex 24 Hours

Gallery: this weekend’s Daytona 24

Endurance racing fans will have already carved the 2014 Le Mans dates into their diaries, but to keep them tied over till June 14, over the weekend some Americans kindly put on their own 24-hour race. Welcome to the Daytona… This season opener was the first race in the new Tudor United SportsCar Championship, formed […]



Ferrari’s 2014 F1 car is here: welcome to the F14-T

Cool name, not so cool looking car. C’mon now, will the folks that wrote these rules please stand up so we can throw our TV remotes at you? Ferrari threw a launch party for its new F14-T — (yeah, F14 as in Top Gun) and it’s a cracking looking car… except for its horrible nose. […]



McLaren and Lotus 2014 Formula One cars revealed…

But then again Lotus probably didn’t expect McLaren to apparently nick its Team Principal Eric Boullier this morning, but that’s exactly what seems to have happened. We’ll get […]



TG chats to Kamui Kobayashi

A first lap crash between Jarno Trulli and Adrian Sutil, a fuel hose stuck to Heikki Kovalainen’s McLaren which then sprayed Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari directly behind, and – consequently – a Kimi Raikkonen briefly ON FIRE. Safe to say the 2009 Brazilian Grand Prix was a memorable race; more so because Jenson Button carved a […]



Video: Jaguar D-Type laps Le Mans in 1956

This is it – the best video you’ll see all day. Made in 1956, it’s 1955 Le Mans champion, Mike Hawthorn, giving you live commentary on a lap of La Sarthe while thrashing a Jaguar D-Type. The best bit? This isn’t race day, so there are cyclists, lorries, and cars wobbling into his path… And […]



Williams unveils its 2014 F1 car

So – now we get a real look at 2014 F1 car and more specifically that nose and, like Cyrano turning to face Roxanne for the first time, it’s hard not to be shocked. That is one hell of a conk. Don’t blame the design team at Williams, they are only responding to the rule […]
