Monaco GP review

That was a typically dramatic Monaco Grand Prix weekend! F1’s ‘jewel in the crown’ is sometimes criticised for producing processional racing but at the end of the day, I can’t imagine a World Championship without a race in Monaco. The whole weekend builds up to a crescendo in Qualifying because track position is so important […]

Spain GP review

The F1 World Championship moved to Barcelona where predictably all the talk coming in to the weekend was about upgrades and whether Ferrari will be able to drag themselves ahead of Mercedes and finally take their first win of the season. As the weekend unfolded however, it became evident that the engine upgrade that they […]

Baku GP review

The Azerbaijan Grand Prix wasn’t as action packed as previous years but in terms of the narrative of the World Championship fight, it was really interesting race to watch and could prove to be a turning point in the battle. Coming into the weekend, all eyes were on Ferrari as they really needed to stop […]

Chinese GP Review

I think it’s safe to say that the 1000th World Championship event won’t go down in the history books for being one of the most exciting! There was certainly a lot of hope and expectation before the race that the Ferrari versus Mercedes battle would be tight but as Qualifying unfolded, it became increasingly clear […]

What a sensational Grand Prix we had here in Bahrain. There was drama, action, surprise and heartbreak all rolled into a brilliant race which summed up just why F1 is a fantastic sport and why we should be in for a titanic championship battle this season. Charles Leclerc was simply superb this weekend. Right from […]

Australian GP review

The first Grand Prix of the year always comes with a great sense of excitement and anticipation. For me personally, there was the added bonus working with the Sky Sports F1 team for the first time since 2013 again and we had a jam packed weekend! But to be honest, this weekend was a really […]

Looking ahead to the 2019 F1 season

I’m really looking forward to the new F1 season. The battle between Ferrari and Mercedes is going to be as hot as ever with both teams producing what look like very good cars and Red Bull Racing with their new Honda package also seem to be closer to the fight. We had a sillier silly […]

Abu Dhabi GP review

We had a real end-of-term atmosphere across the paddock in Abu Dhabi this weekend. Both World Championships were already settled and without the tension of a title battle, the longest ever season headed to the 21st and final hurrah of 2018 with teams and drivers all feeling a bit more relaxed, and tired, than on […]

Brazilian GP review

Drama and controversy in Brazil The Brazilian Grand Prix was an absolutely brilliant race. It had great action on the track, tense strategy calls, a controversial incident with the leader and three different teams represented on the podium. I think if anyone wasn’t excited or didn’t enjoy that race, then I probably suggest you stop […]
