Picture of the Day #006

It is all in the expression. Although much of his face is covered by his blue, yellow and red Schuberth built helmet, the giveaway is the small window that betrays his eyes. Combined with ever so downcast eyebrows and slightly slumped shoulders, it is clear that Fernando Alonso is a worried man. As tails of … Continue reading Picture of the Day #006

Q&A: Jaime Alguersuari (Toro Rosso, Formula 1)

When Jaime Alguersuari made his Formula 1 début at the Hungaroring mid-way through 2009, many considered the then 19-year-old too young and inexperienced to be partaking in a race at the top level. Now 20, the young Spaniard has shown himself to be worthy of his drive; occasionally wrenching some wonderful performances out of a … Continue reading Q&A: Jaime Alguersuari (Toro Rosso, Formula 1)

“Speed on the Orient: The Original Singapore Grand Prix”

Mention the 'Singapore Grand Prix' and thoughts of night racing, bright lights ...and, of course, Nelson Piquet Jr instantly come to mind. Although the 2008 Grand of Singapore was the nation's first step into Formula 1, it was not the first time the Great Prize was contested there.

Fauzy Rides Again

Following a run during Friday morning practice at Sepang earlier on this year, Fairuz Fauzy will be taking to the seat of a Lotus at Silverstone during the first session this weekend, replacing Jarno Trulli. The relaunched team have also promised Fauzy three further sessions later on during the year at Hungary, Singapore and Abu … Continue reading Fauzy Rides Again

2010 Turkish Grand Prix (Istanbul, Round 7, May 28th-30th)

When the gates open at Istanbul Park circuit on Friday morning for first practice, a few anticipated that the attendance would be fairly low, but I wonder how many would have guessed so few would be in the grandstands during the day. So bare were the viewing areas, it would be impossible to ignore the … Continue reading 2010 Turkish Grand Prix (Istanbul, Round 7, May 28th-30th)

An Interesting Run

A quick note to follow up on this weekend's Chinese Grand Prix - the fourth race of the season produced the third 1-2 finish of the season. While this is rare enough in itself, I do not believe that there has ever been a season in the World Championship that has afforded Formula 1 three … Continue reading An Interesting Run

2010 Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai, Round 4, April 16th – 18th)

Following disappointing retirements in the first two races of the season, Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel was relieved to finally come home victorious in Sepang, but the niggling doubts about the Austrian squad's reliability must surely have been playing on his mind throughout the Malaysian weekend. Now those doubts have been eased following a relatively easy … Continue reading 2010 Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai, Round 4, April 16th – 18th)

2010 Malaysian Grand Prix (Sepang, Round 3, April 2nd – 4th)

Of all the circuits designed by Hermann Tilke, Sepang probably stands out as his finest attempt - although there is no stand out corners on the track (the sweeps from turns 5-8 are still very nice), it is a good design as a whole. Malaysia has actually given the Formula 1 community some very good … Continue reading 2010 Malaysian Grand Prix (Sepang, Round 3, April 2nd – 4th)

Mark Webber Drives Sepang International Circuit

This weekend marks the 12th Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit and to mark the occasion, here's a lap from Mark Webber in the Red Bull simulator. Doubtless Webber will want a better result than the 9th place he picked up in Melbourne and will probably be doing his best to avoid Lewis … Continue reading Mark Webber Drives Sepang International Circuit
