    Quick thoughts on today’s Belgian Grand Prix before I hit the road and leave my keyboard behind for a day or two. Spa-Francorchamps is one of my all time favourite F1 venues. It would be the perfect “Welcome back” from the summer break for Formula One and its fans. The Belgian GP normally provides an […]

  • F1's First Constructors Champion: Vanwall

    31 Aug 2014 | 2:55 am
    While the first official championship for drivers was held in 1950, it took the sport’s federation eight more years before they started awarding constructors for manufacturing cars. Vanwall, an F1 team started by business magnate Tony Vandervell became the first team to lift the constructors trophy in 1958. Poor health of its owner affected its future campaigns and the Vanwall name was gone from Formula 1 after the 1960 season. We look back at this forgotten team with prime focus on its 1958 campaign. After a brief stint as a financial backer of British Racing Motors(BRM), Tony…

  • Top 10 Tweets From The Belgian Grand Prix

    After a dominant qualifying performance, it was assumed that it would be a cakewalk for Mercedes. An easy 1-2 result was in the offering, and it was the never the race that Mercedes could lose, but that's what happened at the Belgian Grand Prix.  With an amazing implementation of ERS, and Low Downforce setup, Red Bull went with a different tactic at Spa, and in the past, this was one track where Red Bull were uncomfortable, but they won the race, and it was Daniel Ricciardo who stood tall amid chaos at the German camp.  Image Courtesy: Getty Images [View the…
  • Wolff: Rosberg Didn't Deliberately But Could Have Avoided The Accident

    24 Aug 2014 | 11:22 am
    Mercedes’ motorsport boss Toto Wolff says that Nico Rosberg didn’t deliberately crash into Lewis Hamilton and that his comments during the post race debrief were misinterpreted by the latter. Earlier today, Lewis Hamilton revealed that Rosberg has confessed the team that he deliberately ran into him to ‘prove a point’. While Wolff dismissed such comments as ‘nonsense’, he did admit that Rosberg deliberately didn’t back off when he should have, essentially holding him responsible for the accident. Hamilton was the big loser from the accident,…

    29 Aug 2014 | 12:43 am
    So the dust has settled on the eventful Belgian Grand Prix in which a moment of madness cost Mercedes F1 team 25 points and Lewis Hamilton any chance of scoring points in that event.It is clear in my mind that Nico did not set out on Sunday with the aim of hitting Lewis, It wasn't pre-mediated or planned. He went for an overtaking opportunity and then refused to back out of an ever closing gap to prove that he wont be spooked by Lewis during wheel to wheel racing. That split second decision caused the accident.The incident however is in reality no different to what we've seen all through the…

    In a few days time we will receive confirmation from Ferrari that Luca Di Montezemolo has left the company, perhaps he feels now that after so long without winning the pressure has really mounted and to leave now rather than be pushed makes sense so he can concentrate on his political ambitions.Luca di Montezemolo is presently Chairman of Ferrari, and formerly Chairman of Fiat S.p.A and President of Confindustria and FIEG. He comes from an aristocratic family from the region of Piedmont in Italy. First he graduated in law from La Sapienza University in 1971. He then studied for a masters in…
