McLaren and Lotus 2014 Formula One cars revealed…

McLaren and Lotus showed their new F1 turbo hybrids today. McLaren did a proper job with its MP4-29. Lotus was rather more scrappy with the new E22. 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

Meeke: “You touch the brake pedal and nothing happens”

The WRC got off to a slippery start this weekend, as the weather battered the twisty cols above Monte Carlo. Last year’s champ Sebastien Ogier picked up where he left off with a confident win, followed by local specialist and excellently-named Bryan Bouffier. Hearty congratulations to both. But if we’re honest we weren’t paying much […]

Monte Carlo Rally: final report

Maybe it is, as the old line about the French Revolution goes, “too early to tell” whether World Champion Sébastien Ogier was wobbly, or just plain cautious on the first day of the Monte Carlo Rally, his first the defence of his 2013 title.
