Formula One 2019: Shanghai

I’ve been kind of light on the state of play so let’s catch up a little. During Test Season Maranello looked unbeatable. New Aero, new engine, for the most part they were a half second a Lap faster than Mercedes who has dominated the last 5 Seasons. They were especially quick in the straights (quicker …

Formula One 2019- Sakhir

I hate writing about Bahrain. It’s among the most odious and repressive places they race and they race in some pretty odious and repressive places. I’ll try and make the History as short as possible. After Mohammed died there was this big Civil War between followers of his nephew and those of some random Warlord. …

Formula One 2019: Albert Park

I hate these overnight races because for me, it’s not even the right day of the week. It’s Saturday dammit and will be until I take a nap. Last year was totally confusing with many rule changes, site changes, and a complete revamp of the Broadcast Network, schedule, and Announcers. At least when the moved …

Formula One 2017: حلبة مرسى ياس

That would be Yas Marina and from a meta standpoint I’m curious if the Arabic will display correctly, otherwise there’s not much drama in this race. I suppose technically if Vettel has a DNF and Bottas finishes first he could steal a season second in the Driver’s Championship. Do I expect this will happen? No. …

Formula One 2017: Autódromo José Carlos Pace

When it’s over, it’s over. It’s distinctly possible that Bottas captures 2nd place in the Driver’s Championship as Vettel has a mere 15 point lead while Bottas has the Pole in today’s race. Scuderia Marlboro has been distinctly outclassed yet again and in typical petulant Maranello fashion are threatening to leave. Ferrari have been in …

Formula One 2017: Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez

The commentators are going to point at Vettel’s pole position and tell you- “It’s still a race!” Not so much. Hamilton is 66 points ahead in the Driver’s Championship and would need about 3 consecutive DNFs in the last 3 contests to lose. Despite starting in 3rd that’s unlikely today though it may be that …

Formula One 2017: Austin

What a difference 2 races make! Well, if you win and your closest competitor is a DNF. Hamilton now stands 59 points clear of Vettel and could clinch the Driver’s Title in Austin, a power race that favors Mercedes over Maranello. If he wins or comes in second and Vettel finishes no better than 6th …

Formula One 2017: Monza

All right, before you get all excited about how Hamilton was able to claim his record 69th Pole with a lap in the wet that eclipsed Red Bull, his closest rivals, let’s recognize that the replacement engine rules imposed by Formula One are stupid and counter productive. Over the last 2 weeks teams have accepted …

Formula One 2017: Spa

What?! Already?! I haven’t even started my vacation yet. So what has happened while we were away? Not much, but that’s by design and it’s not even true though no one will admit it. Mercedes started developing a series of chassis tweaks after Monaco that will be on full display here. Also their “end of …
