I’ve had a very exciting offer to spend the Saturday of the British Grand Prix with Ferrari. I’ll be watching the practice and qualifying sessions and having a tour of the paddock and Ferrari garage. And, of course, doing everything I can to grab five minutes with someone from the team… I had a similar … Continue reading Saturday with Ferrari

If Donington Park isn’t up to scratch by 2010, there won’t be a British Grand Prix. That’s Bernie Ecclestone’s insistence – and it is complete and utter folly. At a time when F1 spectator figures are taking a hammering, the last thing F1 should be doing is turning its back on one of the best-attended … Continue reading F1 leaving Britain would be madness
Rubens Barrichello needs to do something ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ anything ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ to stop 2009 turning into a repeat of those six long seasons spent in Michael Schumacher?óÔé¼Ôäós shadow. Seven races into this year?óÔé¼Ôäós championship, Button has won six times and Barrichello?óÔé¼Ôäós points total is barely more than half his British team mate?óÔé¼Ôäós. Button can expect an enthusiastic … Continue reading Silverstone: Button?óÔé¼Ôäós home, Barrichello?óÔé¼Ôäós track? (British Grand Prix preview)
Britain has had more home winners of its Grand Prix than any other country. And with Jenson Button favourite to win again this year, that record could grow even further this weekend.

We are not likely to see a repeat of the heavy rain we saw in 2008 in this year’s British Grand Prix. The outlook for the weekend is dry with warm temperatures pushing up towards 20C. This will follow a week of largely wet weather which should leave the track very ‘green’ on Friday. The … Continue reading British Grand Prix weather forecast

My inbox is full to bursting at the moment, so in an attempt to make some progress through it I’ve rounded up some of your questions and attemptted to answer them all below. And as ever the F1 Fanatic commenters are on hand to fill in the blanks where I can’t.
I spent today at Silverstone doing pit lane reports for the circuit commentary on the PA system. After days of reading and writing reams about the rancorous division in Formula 1, going to a circuit and watching some action-packed, unpretentious racing was like coming up for air.
Bernie Ecclestone was widely quoted yesterday saying: If the work at Donington is not finished in time, we would be happy to skip a year. I don?óÔé¼Ôäót want to lose the British Grand Prix ?óÔé¼ÔÇØ that?óÔé¼Ôäós the last thing we want to do, but we aren?óÔé¼Ôäót going to Silverstone for sure. I’m not in the … Continue reading British Grand Prix to skip a year in 2010? They said that about San Marino…
Silverstone has revealed the changes it intends to make to its Grand Prix circuit after hosting its last F1 race in June this year. As the Northamptonshire track has lost the British Grand Prix to Donington Park, it has taken the British round of the Moto GP championship from its Leicestershire rival.

The moving of the British Grand Prix from Silverstone to Donington Park in 2010 was discussed in Parliament yesterday. Mark Lancaster, MP for North East Milton Keynes, had this to say: Although I realise that this is not a matter directly for the Government, the Minister concerned has recently had meetings with Bernie Ecclestone. All … Continue reading Sharing the British Grand Prix – nice idea but not economically sound
Strangely for a year that has been so political (again) most of the politicking has been going on off-track and has had little bearing on any of the races. Apart from the eeny-meeny-miny-mo approach to qualifying penalties. At Silverstone last weekend the two major elements of political discussion were the proposed Formula Two category and … Continue reading The Ben Evans column: Donington Park
Earlier this month Bernie Ecclestone announced Donington Park will host the British Grand Prix from 2010 instead of Silverstone. In July 1999 Bernie Ecclestone announced Brands Hatch would host the British Grand Prix from 2002 instead of Silverstone. But that never came to be – the race stayed at Silverstone. So what happened? And can … Continue reading Donington Park, Silverstone, Brands Hatch and the British Grand Prix

The FIA has put out a media release claiming the British Grand Prix will switch to from Silverstone to Donington Park in 2010. This is a surprising announcement for several reasons. Not least because the news has been put out jointly by Max Mosley and Bernie Ecclestone, whereas usually these matters are solely Formula One … Continue reading British Grand Prix switches to Donington Park from 2010.
