Bahrain GP review

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 […]

Mexico GP review

The Mexican Grand Prix was a really weird weekend where the form guide for this season got totally torn up. All of a sudden we had all three of the top teams in contention for the win which something that everyone connected with F1 dreams of, whether you work in it or are a fan […]

USA GP review

Kimi plays a blinder What a race in Austin! A 39 year old who everyone expected to retire and has just been sacked by his team qualifies within 0.009 seconds of the team’s number one driver who is paid millions more and has just made arguably his 7th error of the season in free practice, […]

Japanese GP review

The Japanese Grand Prix seemed like the final nail in the coffin in the Sebastian Vettel – Ferrari title challenge for 2018. This was a weekend where they needed Mercedes and Lewis to make mistakes or suffer from reliability issues but once again, it was the red squad that cracked. With a 67 point lead […]

Russian GP review

Team orders : a necessary evil Let me start this column with a clear opinion: I dislike team orders. Like every other true fan, I don’t want to see race results being determined by anything other than the action on track. However I’ve also watched and been around Formula 1 teams for long enough to […]
