• @craig-o just to let you know I read your entire post. And I can’t say I disagree with anythign you said. It’s easy to criticise what’s being introduced and forget of the downsides of the past situations, but no […]

  • Race 14: Singapore
    Qualifying: 11th – Race: DSQ
    I was 11th in practice, and in Q1, still on the prime compound, I set a time which would have put me on top of the timesheets in practice and which was worth fourth place in Q1 itself; Petrov, on the other hand, was eliminated in 22nd place. In Q2 I couldn’t improve my previous lap time on the option…[Read more]

  • Sadly, before my final race of the season, I received the “corrupt file” message and lost all my progress. Not only career but time trials and scenarios and everything else. I decided to do a Grand Prix weekend in Brazil to complete, unofficially, my career. I put the same settings as I’d had but somehow I had too great a performance advantage on…[Read more]

  • Narrowly Alonso on Vettel. Hamilton, Vergne and Massa were also good, in a decreasing way, but the other two really impressed given their machine. Alonso, for the car he had, deserves my vote.

  • Race 18: United States
    Qualifying: 5th – Race: 1st

    I had never shown good pace so I was thinking of using prime tyres in Q3: Hamilton had a 20-position penalty in practice so I had one rival less to worry about. Instead I saved two sets of options in Q2 and I used them: I was first by two tenths with my first lap, but my mechanics repaired an…[Read more]

  • 8/10
    I don’t know why but I enjoyed it. Perhaps more for what could have happened than what actually happened but I was watching very carefully this time. It was an eventful race even if only for Rosberg’s […]

  • He also received two penalties… but I was extemely satisfied to see his progress in the last laps. Bottas had done perfectly well to keep everyone behind for half race but Vergne overtook three drivers with no […]

  • Race 17: Abu Dhabi
    Qualifying: 6th – Race: 1st

    I went from being quickest by 6 tenths in FP to being 1.1s slower than Vettel in Q3. I qualified 6th, and ahead of me on the grid, on my same column were Alonso, on row 1, and Hamilton between us. I had a good start, overtook Vettel at turn 2 and Alonso at the hairpin. I handled the lead well but I…[Read more]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
