  • Hulkenberg disappointed with the second half of the 2014 season

    15 Dec 2014 | 9:25 am
    In the four seasons that Nico Hulkenberg has raced in Formula 1, he is yet to step up on the podium to drink the champagne (or apple juice/rosewater) and kiss the trophy presented to the top three finishers. In the six years he has spent in Formula 1, the one moment of glory still remaining fresh on his mind is the 2011 pole position in Brazil for Williams, in his first F1 season. Since that moment, the German driver has been on a big chase to get his first podium finish. He came close to finishing on the rostrum at the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2012, only to run into Lewis Hamilton in damp…
  • How Alonso provides Button with the best opportunity to prove his worth

    11 Dec 2014 | 8:23 am
    Image Courtesy: McLaren After months of deliberation, McLaren has announced that Jenson Button will partner Fernando Alonso on their reunion with Japanese car maker Honda. It was a one-on-one fight between the experience and proven talent of Jenson Button versus the youth and promise of Kevin Magnussen. McLaren eventually went for the former. Whether McLaren made the right decision or not, that’s another debate which we’ll delve later in this article. The bottom line is Button will now be driving alongside what most people perceive as the fastest driver on the grid. And this is…
  • 2014 F1 Season Review: The Year of Opportunity

    10 Dec 2014 | 11:55 am
    2014 was a bittersweet year for Formula 1. On one hand, we witnessed an enthralling fight for the championship between two of the finest drivers on the grid, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Wheel-to-wheel battles became a common feature and the new regulations delivered an exciting season for the fans.  On the other hand, these very regulations were criticized by the sport's bosses for reasons such as lack of noise. No one spoke of how efficient the new power units were - the very reason these regulations were introduced in the first place. But the worst of…
  • Exclusive Interview with Paul Hembery: Structural changes in supersoft tyres for 2015

    8 Dec 2014 | 3:38 am
    A lot has been said about how much of a challenge it has been for the engineers to design and manufacture the new generation of power units, which produce the same amount of power, while using 35% less fuel. It is also evident from the on baord footage and trackside observation that the new cars slide a lot more, making life difficult for the drivers. What the majority of the people have forgot is the effort made by Pirelli to make sure their tyres deal with the increased stress due to a 4x increase in torque.And to discuss about how 2014 has been for the Italian manufacturer, we sat down…
  • Vettel: Ferrari's 2015 Reboot

    6 Dec 2014 | 12:54 pm
    When we learned of Sebastian Vettel’s decision to leave Red Bull and join Ferrari, long time home of his childhood idol Michael Schumacher, we were quick to judge, as we had judged Lewis Hamilton for making his move to Mercedes AMG. Look where Lewis is standing now. Granted, his move was after a few years of “rebuilding” where the team was concentrating on the rule changes for 2014, where they would be years ahead, and seconds ahead per lap.  This move for Vettel shows he is ready to work for a team with a strong and storied history in the sport we call F1. It also…

    We talk a lot in F1 about Silly Season, for those not familiar with the term, its when all the talking takes place about who's going to which team to replace who etc etc etc.This year the season is exceptional! We started off thinking that it was going to be fairly static as most of the key players had contracts that last until the end of 2015, but after a summer of discontent at Maranello, Ferrari called Fernando Alonso's bluff and signed Sebastian Vettel to partner Kimi Raikkonen in 2015. This has now left Fernando not holding all of the cards, and in some respects not being master of his…

    The 2014 Formula 1 season may have had only three race winners, but there were a number of good and great performances up and down the field. We saw a close inter-team battle for the title between the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS drivers, while Daniel Ricciardo and Valtteri Bottas made themselves household names with a number of excellent drives at the expense of their more experienced team-mates. Although they did not make the top ten, Sergio Perez, Kevin Magnussen, Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniil Kvyat all performed admirably during 2014 were all unlucky to miss out on the top ten list.
