I was thinking about some of those drivers who we all seem to have forgotten about – not the ones who were bad, accident prone or notoriously slow (like Jean Denis-Deletraz, Taki Inoue, and dare I say it Michael Andretti, etc) but those who never stood out and just faded into obscurity?
Such drivers like, and this is without looking them up:
As we all saw in the Bahrain Grand Prix, the sparks are back. A video from the BBC explaining why can be seen here (UK only, sorry).
I would like to know what everyone’s opinions on this are. As David Coulthard points out, it is done purely for the show, but does this make it a bad, artificial thing?
Personally, I don’t think it is bad. If it…[Read more]

…And here we are, saying (or at least thinking) that F1 is now irrelevant to the real world………
Now, what about how irrelevant that aero thingie in F1 is to the real world?
So I recently applied to be a part of the audience of the Sky Sports F1 Show and wondered if anyone else had the oppertunity to be a part of this? I have the opportunity to put a question to them and hopefully it will be answered, so I thought it might be fun to ask the F1Fanatic audience if they had any burning questions which I could ask them (I…[Read more]
If you had to pick any singular lap from any F1 race (not quali) as the most amazing ever, what would it be?
For me: it has to be Brazil 2008. You simply didn’t know where this was going to end up. Vettel passing Hamilton, Hamilton having no answer … and then those Toyotas pootling around on the wrong tyres! Mr Massa celebrating, then standing…[Read more]
Despite a torrid start, McLaren are fortunate that the five midfield teams have split the lower-tier points evenly between them (while the big three has monopolised the top four places at every race).
4. Red Bull 23pts
5. Sauber 19pts
6. Lotus 12pts
7. Toro Rosso 12pts
8. Force India 11pts
9. McLaren 0pts
Normally failing to score in the first…[Read more]

It seems no matter what he does, Lewis is seemingly on the receiving end of a staggering amount of criticism from F1 watchers and people active on social media. I think he has done nothing to warrant such a level of analysis and attack.
I see on many channels (this one included) people saying he’s arrogant, cocky etc etc, without ever seeing…[Read more]

himmatsj started the topic Hamilton in hot soup over him spraying champage into the face of a hostess in the forum Formula One 2 weeks ago
So yeah, over the past day or so, numerous articles have popped up on the Internet attacking Hamilton for spraying champagne into the face of a “visibly discomforted” hostess on the podium ceremony of the Chinese GP.
None of the articles quote the hostess in question, and they’re all jumping to conclusion over some unflattering photos taken…[Read more]
Rodney started the topic What is the best result Manor can hope for in 2015? in the forum Formula One 2 weeks ago
Based on what we’ve seen and the fact a new car and engine are on their way, could Manor score a point of two this year? They have reliability and two drivers who are not out of their depth. We have a small field of cars, and a McLaren which is stubbornly slow. And with any luck, Force India will head backwards.
I am a bit new to WEC and this year I committed to watching as much as I can, previsouly i had only watch bits of le mans.
I was quite thrilled by the silverstone race this weekend and all I can say is I want moar!
Looking at the calendar I was thinking to myself why so few races, I get that they are much longer so you end up…[Read more]
I’ve just heard a conspiracy theory, it goes like this. After Melbourne F1 was in trouble, Mercedes were perceived as boringly runaway winners, their own country couldn’t be bothered to host a Grand Prix to celebrate, Red Bull were so disheartened at the perceived performance difference they were threatening to pull out, and mighty Ferrari were…[Read more]
With teams complaining of everything under the sun and seemingly caring little for their public image, I wonder how people here would rate them for sportsmanship, attitude and commitment to racing. Here is my list:
1. Williams – never failed to hold their racing ethos, and modest with it
2. Manor – we see how badly they want to race
3. Mercedes -…[Read more]
Have we seen the best of Rosberg? is a question i have been asking myself as it seams clear to me with his answers to the press (Lewis drove like a world champion)/ comments to the team over the radio (C’omn… after qualifying in china) that he isn’t as happy this year as he was last year. If you forget/ put to one side how competitive the…[Read more]
