I remember years ago, when the calendar was dominated by European circuits with only 4/5 races in South America, Australia and Japan bookending the season, ITV did a feature on the Benetton (?) team travelling by […]
I recall from one of the recent biographies about Ecclestone, there was a story about how a smaller team sold one-off rights to sponsor the car to a local brewery for one of the USGPs of the mid-1980’s. He was […]
Not really – Button has consistently won the Autosport fans-voted award of late, mainly on account of his popularity. I think on the F1F popularity poll he also comes out on top.

It left a bitter taste in my mouth at the 2011 Belgian GP when Newey commented that he was worried for the safety of his drivers due to blistered tyres. However given that it was his team’s decision to run the […]

I stayed at the camping near Les Combs in 2009 and on the Saturday we went in the car down to Stavelot. Nice little town, fairly quiet with a few nice restaurants. I was actually surprised that there wasn’t more […]
