Coming up: Monaco, Indy 500 and Le Mans… Give us your predictions!

For those of a petrol-y persuasion midsummer means only one thing: the Holy Trinity of Motor Sport. Monaco, the Indy 500 and the Le Mans 24 Hour race. Only one driver, Graham Hill, has won all three of the world’s greatest races and, with Monaco and the Indy invariably now on the same weekend — […]

Alonso wins in Barcelona, but all the talk is about the tyres…

It’s been a while since the dominant teams in F1 were Ferrari and Lotus and my, hasn’t it all changed since then? The fast, fragile machines of the sixties and seventies eeked out narrow advantages through the relentless evolution of their engines, their suspension and chassis construction, a few shots in the dark of the […]

So can Mercedes finally turn a pole into a win in Barcelona?

Do we finally get to see a Mercedes turn a pole a position in to a win tomorrow? Nico Rosberg starts from pole position for the second race on the trot and, just to be sure, team-mate Lewis Hamilton starts alongside. And remember, Spain is a race that is won from the front. More to […]

The most fun practice session of the year in Barcelona? We thought so…

Formula One returns to Europe, and summer can officially begin…

I don’t know about you, but around these parts summer properly starts with the first European Formula One race of this season. Stuff your cuckoos, your bluebells and your BST (overseas readers insert your local fauna, floral and daylight saving acronym here), nothing signals the arrival of lazy afternoons in the sunshine quite like the […]

Vettel takes the win in Bahrain – now it’s onto Europe

In the locked-down, sterile heat of Bahrain and watched in the stands by apparently absolutely no one, Formula 1 came alive this weekend. Sebastian Vettel might have sailed away to a largely un-televised second win of 2013, but behind him it all properly kicked off, didn’t it? There will be some interesting interviews after this […]

Rosberg grabs pole in Bahrain

It’s taken us a while to work out exactly who will start tomorrow’s Bahrain Grand Prix from where, but one thing was certain after today’s strangely anti-climatic qualifying session and that is that a Mercedes will once again start from pole position. And will most likely, once again, not go on to win the race. […]
