Last week I chalked up my 30th anniversary of being an F1 fanatic (1992 San Marino GP was the inception point). F1 is a part of me, its my religion. Naturally, I have a shortlist of F1 races I would like to […]
Great photo of the ’97 Spanish Grand Prix start. If my memory serves me right, wasn’t Panis hounding Villeneuve for the lead in the last part of the race? Panis is way back in 12th at the start here so that is […]

Good to see these comment about the new graphics… I thought it was just me struggling to follows things a bit.
For me part of the issue I had was trying to look up what current position any particular driver […]

He’s misquoting Zelenskeyy anyway, who said he needed anti-tank missiles. Not ammo. So it’s a nice bit of promotion on the back of a terrible situation. That’s a cynical take on it anyway.

Bournemouth is bidding for an e-prix, well that’s unexpected! I read in that article that it is up against Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool though so I think it’s chances are slim.
Out of those, Liverpool […]
With all the talk of getting a second and even a third race in the US to tap into the US economy (and the jury is out on whether that plan will work), I wonder whether there were pre-pandemic plans to do the same […]

Further north, like Road America! No of course not, not an option. Detroit could work, and the city is preparing to resurrect the old F1 Street circuit for Indycar.
In the depths of my memory there was a real […]
There’s also the Homebush Street circuit around the Olympic Village. Not that this would be of any appeal to F1, but I’m just adding that there is technically one other ‘circuit’.
I haven’t been this excited about a driver/team combo since the Montoya/Williams days. Makes me feel young again!
But personally I wouldn’t want to lose him to F1, he’d be stifled there. And he’s so exciting to […]
Some beautiful cars featured here. The FW16, the FW18, and the Arrows has aged well. The Jordan 191 is my favourite F1 car of all time, but the Jordan 199 is the runner up.

@robbie this is exactly why I took the decision not to watch any of the sprint qualifying this year. It would be hypocritical of me to say I don’t like the idea, it shouldn’t be in F1… Whilst simultaneously […]

@sonnycrockett that is a very emotional post, I can’t imagine what you and your family went through / are going through. As Miles says, it’s also a very insightful post, speculation yes, but it casts some light on […]
It sounds crazy… But it could actually work couldn’t it. I remember that’s what they did at the fast right hand oink where Kubica had his huge crash in 2008 – counter-intuitively they moved the concrete barrier […]

@keithcollantine you’ve missed a golden opportunity to quote your favourite tabloid pun: ‘Diniz in the oven!’
That COTD is scary. For anyone who has watched F1 for 10 years (a big chunk of time in anyone’s life) or less they have only ever known DRS.
Even if you’ve been watching it for 29 years, that’s over half the […]

Where is the other Renault in the 2006 photo? Presumably the pitlane. Fisi got a face full of flames from the back of Button’s car on the last lap so it’s odd to think the polesitter and a pitlane starter had […]

@fer-no65 I’m with you there, it annoys me so much when there is a car park of tarmac at the exit of a hairpin. Turn 1 at Austin I’m looking at you…
