  • In a season dominated by Mercedes, perhaps one of the most pleasing and enjoyable highlights has come not from a Silver Arrows driver, but one that is instead powered by the all conquering German power unit and carrying the supremely cool Martini livery. I am of course talking about the new 'Flying Finn', Valtteri Bottas. [Read More]


  • Could Nico Hulkenberg - a man and a driver that has impressed so many since he first entered the Formula 1 circus - once again become the sport's most talked about 'forgotten man'? It appears to have become an unfortunate annual event, and one that you sense doesn't sit well amongst many in and out of the paddock. Tipped for greatness by so many, but will he ever be given the chance? [Read More]


  • Sport sparks emotion. Positive emotion, negative emotion. It's all there, and always there. In a world where we all too often focus on the negatives, shouldn't we take just a little time out to look at the hugely positive aspects of this frankly crazy sport we find ourselves glued to?

  • "Former Formula 1 team boss Flavio Briatore is to be involved in a new working group being set up by Bernie Ecclestone to look at ways of making the sport more popular." - Autosport. You couldn't make it up, could you? It's something we may wish was just made up, but alas, that appears to not be the case. Leaving politics aside for a second - is this something that the sport actually needs? Do we need to improve 'the show'? Do we need to make the sport more popular? Maybe, just maybe, it should be about improving the experience for the most important section of the sport - the fans? [Read More]


  • Social media, a trending topic within the F1 community, and one that looks set to rumble on for some quite some time. In a sport at the forefront of new technology and innovation, why does it appear to be so reluctant to embrace an ever expanding and evolving media platform? [Read More]


  • Consistency. An attribute that every driver and team strive for. An attribute that many often fail to deliver. There's a difference between being consistent, and consistently good. Nico Hulkenberg is neither of those. What is he then? [Read More]


  • Domination. A term we've come very accustomed to in recent years, and given how the opening rounds of this year's championship have played out, one we may not be seeing the back of any time soon. Is it a good thing? Is it a bad thing? Is it something we need to learn to accept? Or something we should embrace? [Read More]


  • Making your Formula 1 debut is always sure to be a big event for any driver, no matter of age or experience. You'd be forgiven for thinking that the younger you are, the more the nerves, pressure and expectation would weigh on your shoulders. Today though, we saw the complete opposite. Two young drivers - aged just 21 and 19 - turned up and delivered a performance befitting that of an experienced pilot at this level. Kevin Magnussen and Daniil Kvyat. Today you arrived, and arrived in style. [Read More]


  • As you may be aware, for the last couple of seasons I've kept track of what the Drivers and Constructors standings would look had Formula 1 still been using some previous points systems. Well, for 2014, it's back!. These four tables will be updated after each race, so make sure you keep checking back to find out what things would look like under different formats. Anyway, enough rambling for now, here's some tables and numbers. Yay! [Read More]


  • A mouthful of a title I realise, but stick with me as I analysis why the current points system in Formula 1 is far from ideal. Double points is without doubt a silly idea, one designed purely to add 'spice' to the end of a season which should merit more respect and reward for previous efforts; but is it the only factor that doesn't sit quite right with how points are distributed in this era of our sport. Let's have a look. [Read More]
