• @npf1 While dramatic, surely the Nurburgring crash wasn’t as bad as Silverstone last year, or Monza 2007?

  • The most emotional I’ve ever been watching an F1 race was this Sunday. The minute of silence in Bianchi’s memory before the start was heart-breaking…

    Also, it was really poignant when the drivers picked up their helmets to get ready for the start, and one helmet remained on the ground.

  • 2013 Canadian GP – the first time Vettel, Alonso and Hamilton shared the podium. Would happen later in the year again, in Spa.
    2008 Hungarian GP – Kovalainen winning from Glock and Raikkonen.
    2014 Australian GP – Rosberg joined by local hero Ricciardo (even if he would later be disqualified) on his first race for Red Bull, and Magnussen who…[Read more]

  • There are 20 drivers on the current grid – let’s try and remember (or think of) the most serious crash each of them has had in their career.

    I’ll start with:
    Felipe Massa – Hungary 2009, hitting a spring at high speed and being seriously injured.
    Sergio Perez – Monaco 2011, crashing at the chicane, which resulted in a concussion. He missed the…[Read more]

    Herbert-Trulli-Barrichello, wow! That would have been one of my favourites! The best one I saw was Vettel-Massa-Kobayashi at Suzuka 2012: Massa back after two years, Kobayashi for the first time in front of his home crowd… the shivers! Alonso-Raikkonen-Massa from Spain 2013 was also nice, three drivers with a Ferrari past or present, but I…[Read more]

  • Ricciardo! Looked on it from Friday, beat Kimi in qualy, was the man of the race with incredible moves at turn 1 despite slow top speed even with DRS, fought his way through despite suffering from others’ errors […]

  • To be honest, after the shock of seeing two Ferraris ahead the race had nothing until the pit stops. Though the action was down mostly to mistakes, that’s racing and I don’t pla to devaluate the entertainment this […]

  • @sam3110 beat me to it… I think the real constructors should not partner with rival teams, so Williams-Mercedes or even Lotus-Mercedes won’t do it for me. Williams-BMW seems to be going well, I’d add Sauber-Ferrari for their long-lasting relationship even under Petronas branding. Crazy where they ended up considering their early times as a…[Read more]

  • Bottas had a puncture, Massa a 5s penalty. Does that justify being 12th and 13th when a McLaren is 5th? They were never that much off pace, it was an awful job by them. Ferrari did everything perfectly, strategic […]

  • Ricciardo’s reaction to lifting the trophy absolutely did it for me. The circle before the race was too emotional, when everyone picked up their helmets and Jules’ one was left there for a minute before who I […]

  • @bradley13 I’m doing a career as… myself! Or we could say Massa, as I started in 2006 at Ferrari alongside Schumi and progressed till 2013, and the games always put me in Felipe’s seat. I’ve done 2013 already, I needed 2012 at Ferrari but I had to go through HRT and Caterham first :S I think in 2014 I’ll split the career between me (continue…[Read more]

  • Race 18: Abu Dhabi
    Qualifying: 7th – Race: 2nd
    I quickly realised my setup was very poor on traction: if my tyres were too cold or too worn I’d easily spin. Across the weekend I spun and several times almost did so at turns 6, 13, 18 and 21. In Q1 due to this I had to do lap, lap, slow-down lap and then lap a third time to take third place behind…[Read more]

  • @bradley13 I’m doing a career as… myself! Or we could say Massa: I started playing as Felipe in F1C mods 2006-2009, then Codies always put me in his seat in their games. I’ve done 2013 already and I needed 2012, but I had to go through HRT and Caterham first :S I guess in 2014 I’ll do two more seasons, one at Williams to continue Felipe’s career…[Read more]

  • Yeah, would be really nice if Charles Leclerc used it when/if he makes it to F1. Surely he’d have the blessing of the Bianchi family. (saw the idea here)

  • @bradley13 well done on your career! I’ve got three races left before I pull the plug on the career mode in 2012, I want to drive for Ferrari at least one season in each game and 2014 is next once I’ve won the title for McLaren. 2015… we’ll see ;)
    And kudos for your brilliant tables – I don’t have my own wiki but I have the same tables on Excel!…[Read more]

  • Race 17: India
    Qualifying: 1st – Race: 1st
    I was 7th in practice, 10th in Q1 and 4th in Q2, ahead of Alonso and Webber. In Q3 with my first lap I was two tenths faster than Vettel and than anyone else, and despite being slower in every sector on my second try I was still purple. I’m back on pole after two nightmare races, with Alonso qualifying…[Read more]

  • Race 16: South Korea
    Qualifying: 7th – Race: 16th
    I was lying 23rd in Q1 and took the inevitable decision to put option tyres on. After two laps I was 9th, more than glad to have passed the first round. I was 9th again in Q2, over a second slower than Alonso. In Q3 I halved the gap, qualifying 7th, and while Rosberg took pole Alonso was fifth.…[Read more]

  • @jackysteeg I started following GP2 in 2011, and Bianchi was immediately one of my favourites. His rookie teammate Gutierrez had already won in Valencia, Jules was still on 0 wins at his second season. Then this race came, and I remember it so vividly. Such a brilliant battle, Jules came out ahead but Vietoris was just as good. Clean racing,…[Read more]
