F1 links: Teams complain about Donnelly

The FIA-FOTA row is still rumbling on with fresh objections from the teams and even murmurings of discontent from one of the putative new outfits which didn’t get a place for 2010. Plus with the British Grand Prix coming up next thoughts are turning to whether there will be an F1 race in Britain at […]

Wurz, Brabham and Gene win the Le Mans 24 Hours for Peugeot

Peugeot’s squad of three former F1 drivers claimed overall victory in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Alexander Wurz, David Brabham and Marc Gene led home a Peugeot one-two. The French team resisted the temptation to swap the running order of its leading cars and promote the second-placed all-French (and all-F1) car of Sebastien Bourdais, Franck […]

British Grand Prix weather forecast

We are not likely to see a repeat of the heavy rain we saw in 2008 in this year’s British Grand Prix. The outlook for the weekend is dry with warm temperatures pushing up towards 20C. This will follow a week of largely wet weather which should leave the track very ‘green’ on Friday. The […]

British Grand Prix TV Times

I won’t be seeing much of BBC’s coverage of the British Grand Prix as I’ll be at the track. For those of you who can’t make it this year, here’s when all the action will be on British TV: Friday 19th June 9:55-11:35 – First practice (BBC Red Button, online) 13:55-15:35 – Second practice (BBC […]

FOTA claims to support the fans – but do the fans support FOTA? (Poll)

In a press conference before the start of today’s Le Mans 24 Hours, Ferrari president and FOTA boss Luca di Montezemolo said: In a couple of years the problem with Formula 1 will be solved – as I really hope, with a responsible FIA, as we want, or, as happens in other sports, organising our […]

F1 links: Nothing about the FIA or FOTA

Having rounded-up the reaction to the FIA’s 2010 F1 entry list elsewhere, I thought I should keep the F1 links digest free of more F1 politics. Unfortunately that means I have only two links to offer you today, but if you find anything else good please post it! The budget cuts will continue until morale […]

Reaction round-up: The 2010 entry list

I spent a chunk of yesterday reading everything I could get my hands on about the FIA’s F1 entry list for 2010 – the endless press releases, snippets of news, analysis and interpretation. As I assembled my thoughts on what had happened and finished a lengthy article offering my interpretations and opinions, it struck me […]

FIA and FOTA remain deadlocked on F1 governance and budget cap

Now the dust has settled following a day of remarkable developments we can understand why the two sides in the FIA-FOTA row remain deadlocked. The two sides have moved closer together on the matter of how deep cost cuts must be. But FOTA’s demand for reform of how F1 is governed has received no recognition […]

F1 drivers in the 2009 Le Mans 24 Hours

Senna, Mansell, Prost… the 2009 Le Mans entry list has some famous F1 names on it. Those three are, of course, ‘sons of…’ plus one ‘nephew of…’. But there are 23 other drivers racing at Le Mans this weekend who all have F1 starts to their name. Here’s a list of all of them, including […]

2010 F1 teams list to be announced (Update: FIA has revealed list)

Today the FIA is due to finally announce its F1 teams entry list for 2010 – the consequences of which could be far-reaching for Formula 1. There have been signs in recent days that Max Mosley and the eight remaining teams represented by FOTA might be close to a compromise solution. The list published by […]
