The new Formula 1 season is upon us and it feels like the first day at school after the summer holidays.

Reunited with friends and recognizing faces you see nearly every day.

And then of course it’s the catch up chats that you have after many weeks away.

All 10 teams reun...

Formula 1 racing has always been considered a sport that is dependent on sponsorship money to provide the funding for teams to operate, year after year. As part of this funding supply, there has always been a series of well known sponsors that handed over large sums of...

In the next few hours, Fernando Alonso will enter his final-ever Grand Prix.

What's certain is that the venue would be the spectacular Yas Marina Circuit.

What's uncertain are Alonso's thoughts about entering his F1 finale!

Would he be just sad having run to the end...

In life two things matter- hard work and hard work.



That's crap.  Ever thought about the other thing that matters?

You could be an Ali in the ring, in a swansong appearance and a sudden ligament tear could pull you down.

Luck, as they say, can be a bitch....

Like sand through the hour glass, the pages of the F1 calendar continue to be flicked over. We’ve seen the Singapore Grand Prix come and go. It is a race where the spectators sitting in the grandstands sweat as much as the drivers do due to the humidity. It was in all...

So, first of all I have to apologise for my absence over the last month or two. Funny story. I left my radio on the Renault pit wall after a game of poker with Cyril Irritable (or whatever his name is). Cyril must have thought I was leaving him an PU update and tried t...

What hope is there for current young, up and coming drivers with the F1 fraternity?

The allocated seats within F1 are always limited by the number of teams, frontline drivers and the reserve or testing seats. From season to season, drivers either retire or aren’t retain...

There was no red letter day for Ferrari at Sochi but it was all pretty and silver from the perspective of the Mercedes team.

It could be said, the taste of the vodka may not carry happy bubbles necessarily for two men on the grid. For starters, Sebastian Vettel may be r...

What is it with some F1 drivers? They are contracted to the same team but in reality it turns out that they simply can't get along with each other because of a personality clash. The term 'team mate' is a well known and often used term of endearment. The term can be br...

Bright lights, a finely-lit circuit. Dazzling under the clear-blue evening skies. A spine-bending, highly barricaded track where overtaking is about as difficult as avoiding a sneeze during flu. What can be as exciting as the Singapore Grand Prix, one can ask?...

Any doubts about why Hamilton is the best driver on the grid were answered from the onset of Lap 45 with there being just 8 more to go. He truly kept his cool under pressure.

But the vanquished Kimi Raikkonen answered criticism levelled against him for his indiffer...

Hamilton's imperious saga as seen so far in 2018 got a feisty counter-punch by Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel as racing resumed at Spa-Francorchamps after the mid-season halt. Seb Vettel's searing pace proved too good a match for Lewis Hamilton's Silver Arrow, putting his...
