    Sitting around with some F1 fans last week, we did some chin wagging over a pint, discussing the long-awaited announcement from McLaren’s driver lineup.  The discussion was quite heated and I was accused of not being cynical enough because I chose to see the brighter side of 2015 at McLaren.  So, for shits and giggles, […]

    Mercedes has hit back at rumours it might begin the 2015 season with 'old' engines for strategic reasons. It has been suggested the title-defending team, expected to still be wielding a significant advantage this year, might race in Melbourne with the 2014-spec unit and therefore keep all 32 development 'tokens' up its sleeve for the […] No 'old' engine strategy for Mercedes in 2015

  • Sebastian Vettel tops Jerez on day one of testing for Ferrari

    1 Feb 2015 | 10:13 am
    Image Courtesy: Getty Images For Sebastian Vettel, it was a happy first day with his new team Ferrari, as he topped the timesheets on the first day of the official pre-season test in Jerez. Although, times say nothing at this point of time but it is a boost mentally to finish the day without major issues considering the start they had last year at the same venue. Behind them in second position was Sauber’s new recruit Marcus Ericsson, marking improvement in the fortunes of the Swiss team in terms of reliability and pace if one is to go by the times(which one shouldn't). Ericsson had a…
  • Tapping newer audiences with showcar and donuts at Grands Prix

    1 Feb 2015 | 9:46 am
    Image Courtesy: Getty Images Having covered the domestic motor racing scene in India during the latter part of last year, I noticed how the crowd went buzzing with donuts, show runs, crashes and engine start noise. This kind of stuff fascinated them more than actual wheel-to-wheel racing. I drew comparisons with Sebastian Vettel’s donuts on the start/finish finish during the 2013 Indian Grand Prix and watched plenty of YouTube videos(was sitting in the media centre when a certain German was celebrating his fourth world championship in a row) to justify my assumption.I concluded that F1…

    Coming into the 2014 season, everyone was discussing about the engineering challenge in designing the new power units. However, it soon became clear that drivers too had a big job in their hands. With four times the torque and far lower downforce levels, 24 men faced a major challenge in adapting their driving style to the new generation of Formula 1 cars. As the sport ushered into a new era, even the championships struggled while two young drivers in particular flourished. Then there was a certain Spaniard who continued to make headlines with his driving, despite another year in…
  • Schumacher faces a 'Long and hard fight' for recovery, says manager

    Michael Schumacher has been making steady progress since his last year's ski crash, but faces a 'long and hard fight' for recovery, according to his manager Sabine Kehm. The seven time F1 world champion was put in induced coma in a hospital in Grenoble before being sent home in Switzerland for rehabilitation in September.  "We need a long time. It's going to be a long time and a hard fight," Sabine Kehm told Reuters. "He is making progress appropriate to the severity of the situation," she added, reiterating a statement she made a month ago. Kehm also dismissed a claim made by former F1…
