Five star Vettel rules the streets of Monaco

Not even a red flag can halt this charging Bull So far this season draws parallels with 2009. One man has won all of the races, except the third one in which he still claimed a podium. He has the fastest car, has been driving faultlessly, whilst his team mate struggles to get anywhere near him in the same car. Ominously though, unlike Brawn, Red Bull has the resources to sustain development on the RB7 and with a 58 point lead in the championship, Vettel […]

Vettel victorious in the battle of Barcelona

On Saturday, Sebastian Vettel was gracious in having surrendered a grid advantage over Mark Webber for the first time since August last year. 24 hours later though and the reigning world champion was at his imperious best, finishing a staggering 47 seconds ahead of his team mate. A mere statistic such as that though does not represent the full story of an intriguing Spanish Grand Prix, for the fact that Lewis Hamilton was just 0.63s behind Vettel after 66 laps suggests that despite a 41 […]

Turkish delight for Seb's IstanBull

Vettel extends his lead to 34 points with a third win of 2011 After just four races, the rest of the field must be scratching their heads as they work out just how they can stop Sebastian Vettel from storming to his second world title. He took pole position with ease on Saturday and simply cruised away from his competitors on Sunday, stopping a fourth time when he didn’t really need to, and won by 8.8s, a margin that flattered his opponents. For the first […]

Vettel at the double - Malaysian GP report

Vettel takes his second 2011 win and extends his lead to 24 points. Pre-race, all the talk was about the weather. With rain having held off on Friday and Saturday, it was destined to come on race day. However, despite a few spots, the anticipated deluge never arrive but instead, the Sepang circuit put on a cracking race, largely thanks to the high wear rate of the Pirelli tyres. Despite all the variables, Sebastian Vettel won for the fourth race running to pull out a […]

“Fernando is faster than you” – Team radios in F1

Team radios have only been prominent in F1 over the past decade, but here are some of the most memorable, funny and passionate. Mark Webber: Fuji 2007 It was the 2007 Japanese Grand Prix and it was cold, very wet and rather dark as a storm gathered over the Fuji Speedway. Mark Webber – suffering from food poisoning – vomited inside his crash helmet but insisted on continuing. It’s remarkable how someone can concentrate on driving a Formula One car whilst vomiting mid-sentence and his […]

Is the testing ban good for F1?

Since the start of the 2009 season, Formula One teams have been banned from testing their cars outside of grand prix weekends.

There are two main issues when it comes to the current lack […]

Walk in the Park - Australian Grand Prix report

It was a different car on a different track but Sebastian Vettel picked up where he left off with a dominant victory in the Australian Grand Prix, his third win on the bounce but more crucially, he takes a very early advantage in the title race. Having usually started a season poorly – he took 12 points from the first two events in 2010 and failed to score in the first two in 2009 – Vettel set himself the target of starting the season on […]

What to watch out for in the Australian Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix heralds a new era in Formula One, with the introduction of the DRS and the return of KERS. Here's what to look out for during tomorrow's race. Battle at the front McLaren's pace has certainly surprised everyone, with Hamilton lining up 2nd and Button behind him. There is a fear though that if Hamilton can't pass Vettel at the start then it's race over. Even if he does pass him - and no polesitter at Melbourne has relinquished the lead into […]
