Formula One 2017: Sakhir

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. I’m as guilty as anyone I suppose, I choose not to focus on Bahrain’s appalling human rights record every year because I get bored or tired and it was clear enough that Ecclestone was a bootlicking sychophant to tyrants, dictators, and plutocrats and would never, ever change …

Formula One 2017: Shanghai

I have read and watched a ton of commentary and I’m no closer to making sense of this season, so it’s track updates again. Fortunately the Mets are only 1 game back in the East. Of course this is after 5 games.

Formula One 2017: Melbourne

What? March Madness not enough for you? I’m still here being as obnoxious as possible and part of that is Formula One. Truthfully there are just too many changes for me to report at the moment, with any luck at all I’ll have caught up before Le Tour though I’m not making any promises. As …

Formula One 2016: Uh, What?!!

Formula One 2016: Yas Marina

Ultra Softs, Super Softs, and Softs (sounds like I’m describing bathroom tissue, I know). Hamilton substantially ahead of Rosberg in Qualifying (his 11th of 21) and it won’t make a bit of difference unless Rosberg manages to finish worse than 3rd. Froth and bother about the Mercedes crew rotation policy (which happened to coincide with …

Formula One 2016: Interlagos

It’s very simple and it hasn’t changed at all since Suzuka (Spa really). Rosberg, with 9 victories, is on track to win the Driver’s Championship because of the reliability problems experienced by Hamilton at the beginning of the season. After Hamilton/Rosberg 1/2 at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, Rosberg is leading the Championship by 19 points with …

Formula One 2016: Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez

If you care about such things (and there’s no reason you should really) there is a lot of hype about whether Hamilton can overtake Rosberg for the Driver’s Championship, but the answer is- not really. With 3 races left (today, Interlagos, and Yas Marina) and 26 points between them, Hamilton is not in a position …

Formula One 2016: Austin

I have mixed feelings about Formula One. First of all it’s horrible, fixed, rigged and boring to watch. Second of all it’s it’s the best game out there, at least compared to other motor sports which really aren’t sports at all relying as they do upon… motors. Where’s the sport in that? I suppose I …

Late game. More later.

Formula One 2016: Sepang

Rosberg starts 8 points ahead of Hamilton in the Driver’s Championship but in 2nd position after Qualifying, and by a lot- almost half a second. On the other hand Rosberg generally starts better. They’re tring to gin up some excitement about the Team Championship by talking about ho Red Bull is getting so close to …
