Alonso leads that already. He’s raced further than anyone, at 83,266km. MSC next on 81208. BUT third.
Expected this, but still a surprise. Any news at all on who will replace him? Or will we have several months with the rumour mills running at full speed? Given JEV’s recent performance, I’d be surprised if Red […]
The comparison to football is a little unfair. The fact is that F1 is about the performance of driver, team and machinery. It’s not just about individual raw talent. Indeed, this complexity is precisely what draws […]
Piquet is a strange one. Relative to his remarkable success, he must be one of the least talked about drivers around. Perhaps it is different in Brazil — must be in fact if an ad campaign is being built around […]
Has anyone got any statistics on the average experience of the grid (average number of GPs driven) at the start of each season? I ask because I suspect that 2013 must be one of the lowest for some time. Of course, […]
Michael might end up beating Rubens’s record, but I would say that Rubens finally has the edge over Michael in terms of performance. Seems to me that at this stage in their careers (300 races +) Rubens is quite […]
The remarkable thing to my mind is not that Ferrari have stuck with Massa long after it’s clear that he will never return to form. After all, he is a nice guy, they are a (relatively) loyal team, and there is also […]
There’s a long running debate over whether Ferrari should persist with Massa, and I have chimed in with my views on other threads. It’s worth making the point, however, that this is not a matter of Ferrari either […]
Clearly, Maldonado is an impetuous driver. For me, his aggression is too far over the line and untempered by any finesse. I’m not a fan (though I’m prepared to be converted should he mature). Having said that, you […]
Got to be either Vettel, or a little less probably Hamilton. Would love it to be jumbo but Seb looks good for Valencia. If we are to have an eighth this year Grosjean looks the man. Didn’t like him back in 2009, though largely because of the hairdo, but am very impressed so far this season.
By the way, I’ve heard that Alonso, Hamilton and Vettel…[Read more]

Have only just come across this site following a post on another topic. Highly recommended: looks comprehensive and up to date.
Can anyone point me to a list, preferably online, of the drivers who have driven the most races for the same team? To be clear, the same driver could appear on the list more than once, for example if he had a very […]
I think this amounts to a rule change/clarification during the season. The points should be kept by the team, as the scrutineers passed the cars, but they will no longer be legal for subsequent races. This has […]
Agree that he’s driving well this year. Before this year he seemed to be steadily getting worse, at least in the sense of making more errors. In 2007 he barely put a wheel wrong, remarkable for a rookie. 2008 and […]
He has a bit of a wayward, racer reputation, particularly when compared with his more stable teammate, but it’s interesting to note that — excluding drivers with only 10 or fewer races to their name — he has […]
