Race 7: Canada
Qualifying: 1st – Race: 1st
I was last in free practice, having had to run on worn slicks on a damp track for our R&D programme. In Q1 I was eleventh, with Alonso leading the session, then it was my turn on top as Alonso was 4th and in Q3 I was first and Alonso 6th. I lost the lead of the race to Rosberg at turn 1, and the German…[Read more]

Luckily for them, if it can be said in such a situation, McLaren have the best third driver on the grid.

Daniel Abt and Marvin Kirchhoefer – I have a soft spot for these Germans since they debuted in GP3, and while the latter is still on track to become a future champion, things have gone badly for Abt in GP2 and are continuing that way in FE.
My ideal driver combination: Rudolf Caracciola and Niki Lauda
The what-ifs: Stefan Bellof and Alessandro Nannini
Race 6: Monaco
Qualifying: 23rd – Race: 2nd
I was quickest in free practice, but in Q1 it was raining and for some reason my setup didn’t work at all, and I was relegated to twenty-third place, between the two HRTs, while Alonso set pole. I recovered to eleventh place on the first lap, making overtakes at every possible spot. Alonso broke his…[Read more]
After testing with a plain carbon fiber helmet in the past weeks, Perez has debuted his design on a Schuberth SF1: he previously wore an Arai.
PS: @george from that shot it appears he has changed to a darker shade of red, nothing else jumps to the eye.
When i first heard of it I thought he’d gone into the barriers on the outside – much like Hamilton a few years ago. Now I think of it, Kovalainen had gone out in the same place and probably suffered a concussion too. I was thinking of a Schumacher-Silverstone ’99 type of crash, but the place where Alonso hit is strange. It’s happened a few times…[Read more]
I fear Hulkenberg might be past his best chance – a wasted talent, possibly. He would have been my choice for the past years, but now I have to say Bottas. I hope Grosjean also gets a breakthrough win soon.
Jean-Pierre Jabouille and Jean-Pierre Jarier? The two Frenchmen both drove in the late Seventies/early Eighties.
Also, the Fabi brothers, Teo and Corrado, were both on the grid in 1984.
In the first part at least, the driver ahead is much slower, but by the time he’s caught up he manages to defend into every corner, great defensive driving! It’s not just the guy with the camera that’s crazy ;)
