  • "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]


  • The price for finishing 11th would appear to be the loss of your race seat. Both Giedo van der Garde and Charles Pic are not only out at Caterham, but out of a first team seat all together, as the pair now both find themselves as reserve drivers at Sauber and Lotus respectively. [Read More]


  • Formula 1 is back! I'm back! The blog is back! Rafts of changes both on and off track over the winter have left many expecting 2014 to be the most exciting and unpredictable season for a considerable period of time. The first test has already been and gone - some leaving an often chilly Jerez feeling distinctively more positive than their counterparts. Everywhere you look change has happened, is happening and will continue to happen as this season rapidly moves up the gears. One thing that seemingly never changes with this wonderful - yet often perplexing - sport of ours is a majorly baffling talking point. For 2014, it's double points. [Read More]


  • Right then, time to make myself unpopular with many in the F1 circle. Pastor Maldonado and Lotus. A move that many predicted, but few desired. Why? I'd put my tuppence-worth on it being because of a rather good German driver by the name of Nico Hulkenberg. Nico has been overlooked again, and instead the Enstone outfit have chosen the often fiery Venezuelan, Maldonado. [Read More]
