The Ben Evans column: qualified failure

Another week, another qualifying rules change, as F1 strives to create a made-for-TV-extravaganza that also produces a good race. The one-hour, 12 lap, sessions used to be cracking TV and a rare opportunity to see what the teams and drivers could conjure up when they focussed their efforts on a single banzai lap. Problem was […]

Bahrain snub piles pressure on Mosley

As a few people have mentioned in the comments the Crown Prince of Bahrain has told Max Mosley not to attend this weekend’s Grand Prix following his refusal to step down over the sex scandal. (Oddball posted the letter here). I think it’s further proof of what I wrote two days ago, that Mosley cannot […]

2008 Bahrain GP preview: Ferrariland

On paper, Bahrain should be an easy win for Ferrari. The team have usually been strong here, with victories in 2004 and 2007, and the slimmest of defeats in 2006 (to a seriously inspired Fernando Alonso). Plus the F2008 seems to have a decisive edge in performance over the McLaren MP4-23s at the moment. Is […]

Ecclestone changes tune on Mosley

Bernie Ecclestone has changed his mind about the Max Mosley scandal and admitted it creates problems for Formula 1. Ecclestone previously said: “What people do privately is up to them. I don?t honestly believe [the scandal] affects the sport in any way.” However he is quoted in today’s Times saying Mosley should not go to […]

A quick request to 20% of you…

I don’t normally use posts to advertise but as this could be mutually beneficial for some of us I thought I’d make an exception! As you know I had the site redesigned last month, which is always tricky as people use different versions of different browsers. And the 20% of you who are using Internet […]
