Last year in the middle of lockdown, on recommendation by this site, I read the book ‘Faster’ by Neal Bascomb, a riveting tale about the Jewish driver Rene Dreyfus, his benefactor the pioneering Lucy O’Reilly Schell and their fight against the Nazi Grand Prix machine. The depictions of the brilliant 650 BHP cars, and further research has quickly m…[Read more]
My favourite era of F1 design can be condensed into a single year that had one of the most uniformly beautiful grids ever – 1991. Every single car looked heavenly, with not a bad line in the whole lineup.
I bought the F1 2020 game simply to play as Jehan Daruvala and win the championships, but one of the unexpected benefits has been the ability to drive as Callum Illot and punt the new Russian driver multiple times […]
I am absolutely delighted to have the Turkish Grand Prix back, not least because the 2010 race was the very first F1 race I ever watched, and it was what made me a true fan! I remember knowing a little about […]

The Italian telefilm was a good enough adaptation.
The patriot in me really does not want to see a Chinese driver in F1 before an Indian one (Daruvala over Zhou), but Zhou did impress a lot, especially rising over the hype around Mick Schumacher, who for some […]

I really think Pirelli is hobbled still by the unreasonable demands that the FIA puts to them. As they said once themselves, they could probably make a tyre that lasts the entire season (also read a comment here […]

Essentially Sports is one of the most annoying click-bait pages I have ever seen, and somehow it pops up on every feed more than any other credible website.

Looks like an old-school 60s-70s F1 track. Could work very well!

How wonderful it would be in a few years to see Ferrari complete the Triple Crown in the same year.

So many things to potentially look forward to if this were a utopian world: Ferrari entering additional teams in Indycar and Le Mans, top engineers trickling down to smaller teams, a grid of 26 cars and F1 teams […]

And, of course, if the sport believes there are enough potential buyers out there.
What do we have to do to make the powers believe anything, tbh?

The funniest thing now would be if Vettel ends up completing the triple crown quicker than Alonso. The irony would be remarkable.
Ever since I read this I have been raving about the glory of pre-war Grand Prix Racing. What an underrated era, and even though it is called the ‘Golden Era of Grand Prix Racing’, it is such a forgotten time in […]
Force India deserved a win too (Brazil 2012 flashbacks)

It seems like Bottas is severely underpaid (relatively)
I started watching F1 exactly 20 after you, Keith! Cheers to another decade!
