What about the gap between two podium appearances for a team that has remained in F1 throughout that period? I would think 11 years must be up there!

If only there was some way you could scroll past the articles you don’t want to read on this site…
The main thing I’ve always thought about DRS is that it should be available less frequently, e.g. each driver has the opportunity to use DRS a maximum of 5 times in one race. So we’d still get to see some […]

I’ve been to the Australian GP three times: 2009, 2010 and 2011.
In 2009, when we only had tickets for race day, my friends and I went to the MCG on the Friday night to watch an AFL game. In 2010, when I was at […]
Very well put, I couldn’t agree more.
Funnily enough, reading the first sentence of your comment, I thought it was going to be about Maldonado. I have neither the time nor the inclination right now […]
I grew up watching F1 — my parents took me to my first GP when I was 2 years old. I don’t remember seeing many women in the F1 world during my childhood, apart from the grid girls. I grew up with no idea that I […]
I am all for teams supporting young talent with test driver roles, but in the event that they need a reserve to jump into the car for a weekend when one of their race drivers is injured, it makes far more […]

Whatever you do, DO NOT underestimate how cold it gets! My friends and I thought we were well-prepared last year with our wellies and waterproof jackets/trousers… little did we know, we’d want gloves, hats and thermals! We sat at Pouhon which is great, but you do need to get there early to get a good spot, and because of the position of the…[Read more]
Madi Murphy commented on the post, Hamilton vs Rosberg: Did unreliability decide the title? 6 years, 9 months ago
“It is also worth noting that Hamilton has won against drivers in the same team who are not “no.2″ drivers. Whereas Vettel, Schumacher, Alonso etc. have always insisted they are no.1 in a team.”
I’m not sure […]
“It’s quite strange because you don’t see people walking around with any flags or waving them like you used to.”
I’ve been to 3 GPs this year and have seen plenty of flags and other merch — mostly for Ferrari, […]
Madi Murphy commented on the post, Vote for your 2014 Brazilian GP Driver of the Weekend 6 years, 10 months ago
As a massive Hulkenberg fan, it makes me sad not to vote for him as DOTW for the race at which he led his first laps this season. But Brazil 2014 absolutely belonged to the other Nico, who was pretty much […]
@attiducs-2 Personally I’m a Prost fan, but I still can’t get over the fact that anyone thinks he didn’t do it deliberately. Of course he did. Just as, like you say, Senna did the following year. Unfortunately […]
Thanks @keithcollantine for COTD. I truly hate the double points idea and have spent a great deal of time ranting about it since the season began, but obviously I miss the days when it was the worst thing we had […]
@girts I totally agree, but I would add that regardless of who wins the title and whether double points plays a factor (in the Lewis v Nico fight), as a fan I already feel betrayed by the existence of the double […]
@optimaximal True, and there are people who think Vettel is ‘unworthy’ of all his titles because of RBR’s superior performance, and some even argue that Lewis doesn’t deserve his 2008 title because the result of […]
Madi Murphy commented on the post, Vote for your 2014 Russian GP Driver of the Weekend 6 years, 11 months ago
I think this is the first time I’ve ever voted for Button in a DOTW poll. However, this one seems fairly obvious to me. Bottas was great in the race but his mistake in qualifying is why I didn’t vote for him — we […]
>> How it came to be will soon be forgotten – just as other more “deserving” drivers have been forgotten through the years.
+1 – Having been raised in a Prost-fanatic household, I used to get so angry about the […]
Much like voting for the quality of the race rather than how I feel about the result, I think it’s important to put aside off-track factors when rating this race. It’s hard, because I have felt wretched all week […]
