Comment of the day

After 30 years, are we finally warming to the Hungaroring?

Years ago the Hungaroring used to be seen as one of the poorer circuits on the calendar, twisty, slow, not much happening. But it is almost universally loved now.

I can only put it down to the fact that it has churned out more than its fair share of great races (after 2006 ayway). It never ceases to amaze me just how much people’s opinions of the circuit have changed.

Happy birthday!

Happy birthday to Nathan and Salut Gilles!

On this day in F1

Mike Hawthorn was killed on this day in 1959. He is the only person to have died while holding the F1 world championship title. Jochen Rindt, the 1970 champion, lost his life before he was crowned champion.
