2021 Spanish Grand Prix

F1 concluded its Iberian Peninsula double-header adventures with a wholly engaging Spanish Grand Prix. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya ranks low on many fans’ favourite tracks list but 2021 might change the minds of some. Did any of the GP Grandstand team look at Barcelona in a new light?

Reflecting on the 2021 Emilia Romagna GP

A little bit of time has passed since Formula One’s 2021 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. With no race this weekend, let’s look back at what we saw at Imola. Haas and Williams We know this year’s Haas is what is known in the industry as a dog.  Slow and with a tendency to bite the […]

Richard Verschoor: Bahrain’s Unsung Hero

There were so many feel-good stories about F2’s opening Bahrain weekend.  Liam Lawson winning Sprint Race 1.  Oscar Piastri winning Sprint Race 2.  Guanyu Zhou proving the doubters wrong as he got that first Feature race win.  So, that’s three great stories right there.  But if I had to find one story or feature of […]

Why the never-ending story of driver budgets needs to end

The great Terry Pratchett once wrote that dog bites man is not news.  Man bites dog, on the other hand, well that’s news.  In much the same way, “Junior driver’s career ends due to lack of budget” is not news anymore.  It’s frustrating, everpresent, and far too common a problem but it isn’t a surprise […]

Christian Lundgaard: Alpine Academy Focus

Christian Lungaard Alpine Academy F2

Christian Lundgaard, in regards to his nationality, isn’t walking all too familiar a path. Danish Formula One drivers, after all, have tended to be few and far between.  There were 11 years between Nicolas Keisa and Kevin Magnussen who lost his Haas seat at the end of last season.  Now Lundgaard is looking to change […]

Marcus Armstrong: Ferrari Driver Academy Focus

It’s quite astonishing to realise that Ferrari had no less than five of their Academy drivers on the grid for F2 2020.  While Schumacher, Ilott and Shwartzman all starred in the championship battle, Guiliano Alesi had a season to forget.  And somewhere in the middle of these was Marcus Armstrong.

F1 Abu Dhabi 2020 Max Verstappen

The Yas Marina Circuit was the setting for F1’s climatic event. As has often been the case since Abu Dhabi cliched the rights for the season finale, the championship was over and the race was forgettable. Something about this generation of F1 car and the track design that snakes around Yas island doesn’t really work, […]
