If you were an F2 fan looking forward to a nice relaxing December away from F2 news, you were fresh out of luck in 2020.  Before an onslaught of driver announcements for 2021, let’s take a refresher on the news from the week of the Formula 2 finale at Sakhir and into the post season. […]

Rare winter F1 News! Cyril leaves Renault. McLaren to Formula E?

The winter off-season is not the time for F1 news. Any morsel of information from the Formula One world is the best excitement we can get in January. Morsels like, y’know an expected green livery all but being confirmed as being green. What kind of website would even cover that? Well, today was a treat […]

F1 Abu Dhabi Race: Max wins another dull event at Yas Marina

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.

F1 Abu Dhabi Qualifying: Max stops a Mercedes quali clean sweep

Max Verstappen Abu Dhabi F1 Qualifying 2020

An electrifying end of the final F1 qualifying session of the season had Max Verstappen claiming his first P1 start of 2020 at Abu Dhabi.

George Russell Not Winning Good For F1 Sakhir GP

For the first time in many a year, most fans on Sunday were urging a Mercedes to win the Sakhir Grand Prix. George Russell did everything right, but his race came undone through no fault of his own.

Yuki Tsunoda: Why he should be in F1

Yuki Tsunoda to F1 2021 Sakhir GP

Three weeks ago, I wrote about the Red Bull seat dilemma and who I would pick for 2021 in the Red Bull and AlphaTauri cars.  One of the men being discussed was Yuki Tsunoda, yet  I chose Sergio Perez alongside Max Verstappen in the former and Alex Albon alongside Pierre Gasly in a season-long shootout. […]

F1 Sakhir Race: Perez wins from back. Mercedes lose from front

Sergio Perez F1 Sakhir GP Race

Many people had hoped for a brand new winner in the Sakhir GP without Lewis Hamilton’s presence. They got one, but few could’ve predicted that it would be Sergio Perez atop the podium for the very first time at the end of the race. The Mexican was the last of the runners by the end […]

F1 Sakhir Qualifying: Tight top three, but Bottas brings A-game

Valtteri Bottas Formula 1 Sakhir GP Qualifying

Qualifying for the F1 Sakhir GP was perhaps the most anticipated of the season. All eyeballs were on young George Russell and whether he could take the fight to Valtteri Bottas in his first non-Williams F1 Grand Prix weekend. With the lap time of this outer loop layout being so short, the teams were extraordinarily […]

The chaotic run up to the Sakhir GP Weekend

George Russell Sakhir GP Guide

If there was ever a week that epitomised the importance of the Internet in motorsport, the days following the Bahrain GP was it. “Back in my day, we had to walk barefoot halfway across the country in hail to Silverstone to get news about racing”. Well, maybe not quite, but any motorsports news in December […]
