Webber’s pole vault

Quali at the German GP today was definitely the most exciting one of the year so far. Loads of changes at the front, and some scary moments provided by the rain.

Malaysia practice: Ferrari on top

The Ferraris are both back at the top of the time sheets after today’s second practice in Sepang for the Malaysian GP, with Kimi Raikkonen going quickest. But his morning wasn’t without drama. Or smoke. Lots of smoke.

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.

Chinese GP: practice

Lewis Hamilton could actually become world champion on Sunday at the Chinese GP, which is pretty amazing for British fans, when you think we’ve not had a world champion since Damon Hill back in 1996. The chances are pretty slim that he’ll do it mind, but it’s definitely possible.
