Singapore morning preview: looking forward to a potential race of the year…

Good morning. Official F1 Timing is telling us you still have plenty of time to get to the shops and get in all you need to prepare for what promises to be one of the races of the year. If the view outside from your Sunday Afternoon sofa is as grim as ours it’s not […]

Lewis claims pole in Singapore

Sebastian Vettel starts third, unable to turn some quite astonishing driving in all three practice sessions into a pole, ahead of Jenson Button. Vettel is racing Hamilton tomorrow. Both need to grab as many points as possible back from championship leader Fernando Alonso, who starts in fifth, and simply not as fast as the Red […]

Singapore Grand Prix: Seb goes fastest under the floodlights

Amazing how all that nostalgia for the classic European circuits — Spa, Monza, venues for the last two races — tends to make you forget the astonishing sight of F1 cars racing under floodlights. Ferraris especially; the red loses all that fluro-modernity and the white’s, er, whiter, retro-style. Must be something to do with the […]

Spa, the aftermath. Discuss the weekend’s events here..

Today we want to talk about Romain Grosjean, Pastor Maldonado and Sebastian Vettel. To be direct, the Sunday Afternoon Club doesn’t quite tally with the sentiment behind the penalties handed out to RoGros and the Monster from Maracay, but we’ll come to that.

Spa preview: Lewis takes to Twitter to clear up his eighth place on grid…

Warning, the following article contains acronyms. No sooner had we pressed the button to launch yesterday’s quick response on qualifying, noting the possibility or even probability of some action at Le Source, what with Pastor Maldonado lining up in the three slot, than this year’s favourite F1 villain got another yellow card.

It’s Button on pole in Spa – with interesting company at the front of the grid…

Right, just a quick note before we dig out our onesie and head out for a triathlon. Triathlons must be the answer, because if anyone in F1 has spent the last five weeks doing the right thing it’s Jenson Button. While others have been on the beach, he’s been on his bike, on his feet […]

Formula One’s back, but nobody told the weather. Practice report from a damp Spa…

There is no sight more likely to stir your soul, catch your breath and trip your heartbeat than the sight of an F1 car flat out, flicking left and then right through the Spa circuit’s Eau Rouge kink in the rain. And today there were indeed no sightings of F1 cars, flat out, flicking left […]
