The 2018 Chinese Grand Prix

My previews so far have suggested certain performances from certain teams and drivers. They have been pretty much useless. Case in point, Shanghai, China. This one was a slow burner, but ended as a classic. Qualifying produced a second consecutive Ferrari front row lockout. Kimi Raikkonen was close but Sebastian Vettel was able to snatch… Read more

F1 2018 Round 3: China

It’s that wonderful time when Formula 1 races take place on consecutive weekends – everyone has packed up from Bahrain and quickly relocated to the Shanghai International Circuit, near the city of the same name, for round three of the 2018 season.

The 2018 Bahrain Grand Prix

The desert can be cruel to those who underestimate it. It can reward those who fight. Welcome to Sakhir, Bahrain.

By now Albert Park has firmly established itself as a fan and driver favourite. Street venues have a different dynamic to race tracks, given the constant usage… Read more

F1 2017 Round 20 – Abu Dhabi

We’ve reached the end of the 2017 F1 season, a season that gave us a resurgent Ferrari and an inkling of how competitive Red Bull can be given the right conditions. It’s seen the breakdown of McLaren’s relationship with Honda and post-Europe implosion from Ferrari. It’s seen Lewis Hamilton break the record for all-time pole… Read more
