The season finale was packed with drama and tension, especially at the end as Lewis Hamilton tried everything to change his situation and win the world championship. His personal strategy was clear, meanwhile team race strategy decisions had a huge bearing on what happened behind him, with Red Bull trying to win the race using a different strategy gambit, but getting caught out by some excellent work by Ferrari. The Scuderia beat Red Bull despite having a slower car, thanks to strategy. Here’s the inside […]
This year’s Japanese Grand Prix was one of only three in the last 25 years where all cars finished, making it a tough race in which to make progress, especially if you weren’t running towards the front. It was also unusual for a Suzuka event in not featuring either a Safety Car or a Virtual Safety car, to mix up the race and offer some strategic dice rolling opportunities. But there were some major talking points about the decisions that were taken with Ferrari again […]
One of the best Grands Prix of the season featured close racing, heartbreak for Lewis Hamilton with a late race engine failure and a fascinating strategic battle at the heart of it, as Red Bull challenged Mercedes in a war game. For the second season in a row the dominant Mercedes team did not win in Malaysia, as Nico Rosberg fell to 21st at the start and Red Bull split the strategies across its two cars to attack Hamilton. There is much to digest and […]
Daniel Ricciardo held off Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen to take victory in a breathtaking Malaysia GP and end Mercedes' ten-race winning streak as Lewis Hamilton suffered a costly retirement. Ricciardo snatched the lead on Lap 40 as pole-sitter Hamilton, who held a comfortable advantage, saw his race come to a fiery and devastating end as he ground to a halt at Turn 1 following an engine failure. The Aussie had superbly defended from Verstappen a few laps earlier, holding his own as they sensationally […]
It doesn’t happen often that a Formula 1 Grand Prix is won on a Saturday, but that was the case with this Italian Grand Prix. Mercedes took the opportunity to qualify on Soft tyres, rather than SuperSofts, so they could start the race on them and do a one-stop strategy. No one else did this. Was that something that Ferrari and Red Bull could have managed also? And if they had, would they have been able to get a better result, given that Lewis Hamilton […]

Max Verstappen edged out Red Bull team-mate Daniel Ricciardo to set the pace in the second practice session ahead of the Belgian GP as rivals Mercedes chose not to register a representative lap time. Verstappen's impressive 1:48.085 on the supersoft tyres saw him finish over two tenths clear of Ricciardo, although the Dutchman did encounter power unit issues towards the end of the session.
