New quali?

There’s an interesting piece over at autosport.com, that says the Formula One Teams’ Association will be looking at the possibility of a new qualifying format for next season, which would change the whole format of F1 Saturdays as they currently are.

Taking the Piquet

Is it just me, or is it strange that Flavio Briatore has signed Nelson Piquet Jnr at Renault for another year? Or is it not so strange? Maybe it’s not so strange at all.

Brazilian GP: Coulthard’s off

It was a shame that DC finished his last ever F1 race as disastrously as he did on Sunday – going out on the first corner – but it kind of summed up his career. He always had a lot of promise, but never really delivered. He’s certainly had his ups and downs during the […]

Brazilian GP: warming up

Japanese GP: preview

The problem for the Fuji Speedway is that Suzuka is in the same country. For as long as that magnificent track exists, Fuji will remain in Suzuka’s shadow. It was with great reluctance that F1 moved last year but it’s fair to say that Fuji has not been as bad as everyone expected.
