Formula 1 2014 Season Preview: Part Two

The second part of our 2014 Formula 1 season preview takes a look at those teams who occupied the midfield slots in 2013 - some are looking higher up the grid, while others will simply be trying to retain that position. Toro Rosso-Renault 25 | Jean-Éric Vergne; 26 | Daniil Kvyat The fundamental basis of the STR9 appears strong but currently, like their Renault rivals, they remain hindered by reliability issues and a general lack of running. Toro Rosso’s aim is to keep running along […]

Formula 1 2014 Season Preview: Part One

Has there ever been such anticipation ahead of a new Formula 1 season? New regulations, a new sound, the potential for high unreliability and quite simply, a step into the unknown. No one can be sure how the racing will pan out and the strategists on the pit wall and back at team bases will have to react to ever-changing scenarios.

Season Preview 2012: Vettel aims to join the legends

Sebastian Vettel: Triple world champion. In 9 months time, it seems likely, doesn't it? A year ago in the season preview for 2011, I wrote how Sebastian Vettel was likely to blow away the opposition and storm to a second world title. After all, he’d suffered mechanical failure and made errors in 2010, from which he would learn. While predictions of Williams taking podiums and Robert Kubica returning mid-season turned out to be wholly inaccurate, in this instance the ominous prediction of Vettel dominance turned […]

Season Preview 2012: Sauber

As a grand prix team, Sauber is really quite astonishing. Every season – except for the BMW days – they operate on a budget that amounts to roughly £1.50 and continue to fight in the midfield. However, could they be the team that struggles in 2012? Such a statement will only be pure speculation, but track side observers have noted nothing special from Sauber. It appears to be on a similar level to the C30, which finished seventh in the championship, although the problem could […]

Season Preview 2012: Ferrari's Crown Jules?

He was meant to be the saviour of French motorsport. Win the GP2 title, move up to F1 and then impress the world. Yet out of the three Frenchman set to start the Australian Grand Prix, Jules Bianchi isn’t one of them. Instead, he is sat on the outside as the fourth man looking to join his fellow three Gallic musketeers. If you’d have told anyone in motorsport three seasons ago that there would be three Frenchmen but no Bianchi, they’d have been puzzled. It […]
