F1 in the blogs 26 – Williams’ Bahrain trouble

Rounding up the best from the blogs we have Fernando Alonso’s football dive, the row over Ferrari’s Marlboro branding, an F1-themed Toyota Hilux and why Williams missed out on points in Bahrain. Plus, without question the stupidest news story of the year so far.

Silverstone offers family tickets from ??79

Reacting to the increased demand for British Grand Prix tickets, Silverstone have introduced a new ticket. The ‘family’ ticket allows a group of two adults and two children to attend on Friday for ??79. Saturday attendance is priced at ??139.

…and we’re back

OK I admit it: We were not prepared for the enormous growth in popularity of F1Fanatic over the past few weeks. It’s been a thrill to see you all visiting the site in your thousands – but an unwelcome side-effect was that it crashed the server the site was running on! I can’t blame Max […]

BTCC Behind the scenes

Over the weekend I had the chance to work in the Seat BTCC team garage with Jason Plato’s mechanics at Rockingham. I’m happy to say I didn’t break anything (Darren Turner’s car failure while on pole for race one was nothing to do with me). The Seat guys gave me an unprecedented chance to witness […]

“Beyond the limit” (Sid Watkins, 2001)

At the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal on 15th June 1997, Olivier Panis’ Prost speared into a tyre barrier, breaking both of Panis’s legs.

The Ben Evans Column – Super Bikes

Cursed ironic timing. Last weekend – the most Motorsport-tastic of the year so far with F1, GP2, World Superbikes, British Superbikes and more – coincided with a visit from some non-F1 Fanatic friends. (Yes, I do have some). My proposed schedule for Saturday and Sunday was rejected – admittedly it was a little Eurosport heavy […]

Bahrain Grand Prix 2007 facts & statistics

Find out about Davidson’s achievement and all the other landmarks that […]

Champ Car Long Beach: Bourdais cruises to win

Three-time Champ Car champion Sebastien Bourdais was in imperious form at Long Beach, as if his nightmare race at Las Vegas had never even happened. He streaked away from the opposition at up to a second per lap and only a late safety car period that slashed his 20s advantage threatened to spoil his day.
