• Race 16: India
    Qualifying: 12th – Race: 3rd

    Free practice wasn’t encouraging and despite being 6th in Q1 I was 12th in Q2; Alonso took pole from Rosberg, Vettel and Hamilton. I recovered to 3rd at turn 3, behind Alonso and Vettel and ahead of Hamilton. I soon notice, though, that my option tyres wouldn’t have made it till the planned pit stop, but…[Read more]

  • Race 15: Japan
    Qualifying: 10th – Race: 8th

    I was first in practice, but only 6th, 9th and 10th in each section of qualifying respectively, while Vettel beat Alonso and the two Mercedes to pole. I rose to 2nd on the first lap by overtaking Rosberg before going under the bridge, but Vettel had enough margin at Spoon Kurve to avoid my attack and run…[Read more]

  • Race 14: South Korea
    Qualifying: 13th – Race: 2nd
    I could only manage 13th in Q2 as rain affected my second run, while Vettel took pole from Hamilton and Alonso. I had a good run on the outside of turns 1 and 2 and combined with a good tow down the straight I got up to 2nd place by overtaking Hamilton at turn 3. Vettel ran away, though I lapped…[Read more]

  • Race 13: Singapore
    Qualifying: 6th – Race: 2nd

    In practice I had to run five laps starting with a fuel load of 56 laps, meaning I was last by 2 seconds, but with 40 laps’ worth of fuel less I was 10th, 2 seconds off Hamilton which I selected as my rival going into the weekend. Qualifying was the first dry session of the weekend and I confirmed my…[Read more]

  • It will be both hard for the FIA to impose and for the teams to follow – there can be some genuine errors. Of course the engineer won’t come on the radio to say “would like a cup of coffee?” but only the most […]

  • Just for fun, I don’t buy these claims…

  • Despite his recent comments being usually met with disbelief by F1 fans, he has worked with Ferrari his whole life. It’s easy to remember the years Ferrari hasn’t won anything, but the most dominant era of Ferrari […]

  • Come on, it’s Magnussen! He qualified excellently, started brilliantly, drove surperbly and defended determinedly (and correctly I think, despite the stewards’ contrasting opinion). He was the most aggressive […]

  • Race 13: Italy
    Qualifying: 18th – Race: 1st

    I used all my three sets of mediums but I wasn’t able to improve the time I set on my first lap, especially in the second sector. I did so by a quarter of a tenth on my last lap but I was one tenth off Q2 and qualified 18th, five positions ahead of Petrov. I didn’t have a brilliant start but I braked…[Read more]

  • Race 11: Hungary
    Qualifying: 11th – Race: 1st

    I reached Q2 in 15th place, then I was 10th for a brief time in Q2 but I lost out to Grosjean by half a tenth. Hamilton started from pole but on my side was the weather: heavy rain meant no pits tops on the wet compound. I started well and courageously took the inside line and braked late at turn 1 to…[Read more]

  • OK… “I thought it first but waited till I got home to post it” ;) @neiana

  • @jleigh I hadn’t thought of it that way as it happened. And I wasn’t saying Mercedes planned it, more that Nico did. Meaybe he said “I’ll make it up to Lewis” and Toto smiled for the way it happened. But as I […]

  • 9/10. Would’ve probably given it 8.5, but for my expectations this was an interesting race. Bottas made the first half thrilling, Magnussen thankfully put some good defensive driving in there or those DRS […]

  • When Rosberg leaves Mercedes he will make this public if it ever happened. Just wanted to be able to go back to today and say: “I said it first!” Sorry!

  • I’m going to leave this here, don’t mean to sound conspirational but…
    Rosberg messed up turn 1 early on in the race with a safety gap to hold onto the lead, just like Piquet Jr. spun out on the formation lap in […]

  • Slightly too harsh because it couldn’t be any less than 5 seconds, but unfair to me.

  • For how much I’d love to see Brawn back at Ferrari, I’d feel sorry for Mattiacci. He seems a likeable guy, hasn’t put himself on display and has concentrated on doing his job. He’s had too little time to see […]

  • @mattypf1 oh, I didn’t consider Haas will enter in 2016, I read 2015! At that point I hope Bianchi will actually be at Ferrari. Marciello may well join them rather than Marussia, but a double-rookie line-up for a […]
