It looked like a slow McLaren pit stop for Ayrton Senna had handed victory to Alain Prost at the Hockenheimring on this day in 1989…
The 1989 F1 season was dominated by two team mates at the top of their […]

My viewing experience of this GP was terrible. The BBC didn’t show the race live (it probably clashed with Songs of Praise or the snooker) and, in the absence of internet access, the only way of following what was […]
I suspect there’s been some confusion between Paul Belmondo (the ex-Pacific F1 driver) and his father Jean-Paul Belmondo (who, as a French film star from the 1960s, is probably more famous than his son).

I’m pretty sure that’s what Senna, Mansell, Piquet, Villeneueve (Giles or Jacques), Montoya, etc would all said.
Would that be the same Gilles Villeneuve who sat loyally behind his team mate at Monza in 1979, […]
Perez started his career in Sauber, then ferrari said he is inexperienced and not good enough and mclaren picked him up. Raikkonen started his f1 carrer in Sauber, ferrrari said he was inexperienced and not good […]
I’m not sure I’d count that a lucky escape – certainly Donnelly was fortunate to be alive, but he suffered career-ending injuries and has never raced in any serious way again. I saw him in the paddock at Thruxton […]
Actually, the first outfit run by Frank Williams was Frank Williams Racing Cars which was later bought by Walter Wolf with Frank kept on as team manager, but he quickly became disillusioned and left. Starting […]
I remember when the drivers didn’t like racing against Sato back in 2005 I think.
Sato was a bit incident prone but I can’t recall him ever intentionally driving into an opponent, which Maldonado has done twice […]
I think people have every right to be annoyed about what happened on Friday and Saturday.
Of course they do, but even Bernie – a longstanding critic of Silverstone in the wake of the 2000 debacle – is saying […]
It’s great to see how our understanding of physics and aerodynamics evolved through the years.
Not to mention our understanding of material science, which has allowed us to exploit our understanding of physics […]

On top of this, all the discussion on whether Hamilton should have let him by or been less agressive is even more ridulous. Why on earth should he have to do that? We didn’t hear any calls for Kovalainnen to let […]
Newey joined Williams in 1990 having been fired by Leyton House in the middle of the year – just before Capeli’s astonishing drive at that year’s French GP – and had a big impact at Williams almost immediately. […]
I think the easiest way to do that would be to restructure everything so that series flow into one another.
That has an attractive simplicity – and GP3 to GP2 is fine – but I don’t think it works in practice. […]
The more fundamental question Ferrari need to ask themselves here is just what sort of team do they want to run?
Are they intending to build themselves around Alonso with a strong, reliable but generally […]
