20. Will Stevens
Stevens has impressed me and surpassed my expectations by outqualifying Rossi and Merhi. However he hasn’t been so quick in the…[Read more]

MSA Formula racer Dan Ticktum has been given a two-year ban after deliberately crashing into rival Ricky Collard under Safety Car conditions having first illegally overtaken several cars in order to catch him.
Ticktum had already been given a three-month ban for the incident at Silverstone. As his new ban commences from the date of the incident,…[Read more]

I came across this crazy video of a pre-NASCAR stock car racing crash at Langhorne in 1951. It’s a good example of why we should be grateful for pretty much every safety innovation which has been made in the past six decades, not least the Safety Car…
Astonishingly no one was killed although there were quite a few injuries.
With the current clash of Le Mans and the Baku GP there has been a lot of talk about Formula One drivers racing elsewhere. Vettel most recently said he thinks drivers are afraid of losing respect and stature by possibly losing in other series. You might be quick in F1 but that doesn’t mean you’re quick in, his example, DTM.
His comments made me…[Read more]
Do you know anybody that is involved in the world of F1? If so, please tell us as I and I’m sure many others would be interested to hear about it. For me personally, my father is friends with Tony Ross (race engineer for Nico Rosberg in case you didn’t know).
I was thinking about how we have so many similar tracks now with a long straight and it made me wonder which grand prix has/had the least straights.
Has there ever been a track with no decent straights. Monacco is the obvious candidate but I wondered if anyone can think of a race with less straight sections, especially not on a street circuit?
Patrick started the topic Do you see Renault winning the championship in the next five years? in the forum Formula One 6 days, 8 hours ago
So it’s a weekend without F1 and I’m a bit bored.
The acquisition of Lotus is only a matter of time (all sources point towards an announcement at Abu Dhabi) and we already know the team will be rebranded Renault as soon as possible after the takeover.
My question is: do you see Renault winning the championship in the next five years?
My take on…[Read more]
Keith Collantine started the topic Formula E reveals its shortened Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez layout in the forum Formula E 1 week ago
Formula E will use a shortened version of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. It includes both ends of the one mile oval including the Peraltada, albeit interrupted by chicanes, and an extended section in the Foro Sol stadium:
Providing it is approved by the FIA World Motor Sport Council next month, the track will host round five of the 2015-16…[Read more]
Having dominated the World Touring Car Championship since arriving last year, Citroen has announced it will axe its programme at the end of next season.
It’s bad news for the WTCC, which has struggled to develop a solid base of manufacturer competitors, and is yet another reminder of how swiftly car makers can pull the plug on their racing…[Read more]
As so many of us, motorsport enthusiasts, may already know, the 2015 Race of Champions is taking place this weekend at the London Olympic Stadium. The Nations’ Cup takes place on Friday evening (8pm local) with the main event following on Saturday afternoon (3pm local). For the the first time in the history of the ROC, a kart race was added to the…[Read more]
Here’s a driver line up based on the Driver Database ELO ratings. Obviously, in F1 this would be impacted by car strength, but in the junior levels (mostly spec series) this is less of a distortion.
Hamilton, Vettel, Rosberg, Alonso, Raikkonen, Massa, Vandoorne, Button, Bottas, Ricciardo, Rosenqvist, de Vries, Hulkenberg, Grosjean, Rowland,…[Read more]
Keith Collantine started the topic BBC could drop F1 as it seeks £35m saving from BBC Sport in the forum Formula One 1 week, 1 day ago
The BBC says it needs to save £35 million and expects “the loss of some existing rights and events”. Will F1 be among them?
£35 million will be saved from the BBC’s TV sports rights budget. Meeting this savings target will be tough, particularly given the high levels of inflation in the market. We therefore anticipate this will lead to the los…
Those who are asking for Why couldn’t Lewis Hamilton pass Nico Rosberg and a Rookie Max Vestrappen could pass other cars in #BrazilianGP ?
Well here’s the answer by me
Obviously it’s easier to follow a slower car and then overtake the car ahead as after closing in turbulent air will affect but it will be small as you will follow for less laps…[Read more]
My husband is an F1 fan whereas I do not know much about the sport (apologies). Long story short but due to a change in our circumstances this year (new baby) my husband wasn’t able to attend the Grand Prix where he usually purchases his team t-shirt from the official store at Silverstone.
I know the season is due to finish shortly but I was…[Read more]
Nico Rosberg may or may not become World Champion in the future, but let’s just say for a second that he doesn’t. Should he go down as the best, or at least one of the best drivers never to win the title? I thought it would be interesting to hear everyone else’s opinions. In his favour are some of his achievements:
– He has the most pole…[Read more]

VMaxMuffin started the topic Does Tilke's love of off-camber corners discourage overtaking? in the forum Formula One 1 week, 6 days ago
So I’m studying for a physics exam and I was thinking about cornering in a race car and how camber affects it, from a physics point of view.
Firstly, the big issue with overtaking in F1 is – and has been for a while – is the difficulty of following another car due to the affect of the turbulent air coming off a car on the aerodynamics of the car…[Read more]
