I was so conflicted during the last dew laps. My heart wanted Bottas to win but my head said Vettel. If Seb had overtaken him, I’d have got the full fifty points and might have actually won something on this for […]
I’ve never been so conflicted doing one of these before. I honestly don’t know what to think. Is Merc really that bad, is RBR doing that good, is Ferrari really up there, could Force India spring a surprise. It’s […]
Well to be fair, that race hit the two hour limit after 62 out of 78 laps.
Heinz-Harald Frentzen did at Brazil 2003 which was halted at lap 54 out of 71 due to Alonso’s crash.
In terms of the race going full […]

Nico Rosberg’s 19th pole position means that he now has the record for most poles for a non-world champion driver, surpassing Rene Arnoux’s 18.

Max Verstappen’s 4th is Toro Rosso’s best result since Sebastian Vettel’s 4th place in his final grand prix for the team back in Brazil 2008.
– This was the 6th race this year to feature Hamilton, Rosberg and Vettel on the podium
– Deutshcland uber Alles has now been played on the podium at every race since Belgium last year.
– If Lewis Hamilton […]

As noted by Sean Kelly Mercedes is the first team since Ferrari in 1952 to have two cars on the podium at the first seven grand prix’ of a season.
I’ve always had a soft spot for the Canon Williams livery, especially in the Renault days when it was combined with Camel colours.
Another F1 sponsor I liked which wasn’t on a car, but rather on the advertising hoardings, was Fosters. I don’t know why but I liked their signs and I do miss them from Formula 1.

For a team that will have had about 50 shades of grey on their car by the end of the season, they are sure putting their drivers through some sort of cruel sadomasochistic punishment.
Season 1 – Round 17 – Korea – Qualifying – 6th
As usual, the car was a bit tricky, but nothing I couldn’t handle. My lap was pretty bang on and I qualified a fine 6th. I had a great sector 3 but the first two thirds of my lap let me down. I actually posted the same time as Lewis Hamilton, however I got 6th on account of doing my lap first.

Season 1 – Round 16 – Japan – Qualifying – 11th
I had high hopes of a good qualifying around Suzuka, it’s a track I love and have always been good at. However I was plagued by dreadful understeer. I therefore qualified a rather lacklustre 11th, though I did outqualify my team mate for the 16th consecutive time this season.
Race – 6th

Season 1 – Round 15 – Singapore – Qualifying – 15th
A wet affair, I found it tricky to keep it on the island and made a mistake on each of my first three attempts. Eventually I managed to string a decent lap together and qualified in 13th positon.
Race – 10th
I made an ok start but understeer at the first corner saw me drop to 14th. However for…[Read more]
I recently started this playing game again after a few years and started a new career mode. Thanks Harry for bumping this thread. First I will tell the story of my season so far and I will post details of my Singapore Grand Prix later.
In my first season, I would by driving for the new Virgin Racing team alongside the Brazilian Lucas Di Grassi.
