Another great USGP is in the books!
If you don’t know 18-year-old Koyama Miki (小山美姫), you’re far from alone, but it’s definitely ignorance you should correct. She’s in the Japanese Formula Four Championships and, like a lot of young racers, she’s gunning for a slot in F1. She’s good enough that Honda just let her thrash an S660 in a brand new commercial.
Airplanes and F1 cars both offer vision in to a secret world of performance unbeknown by most. They’re a physical glimpse at what the invisible black-art of aerodynamics looks like. F1 cars are often described as fighter jets that drive around on the ground. Who or what ignited the catalyst that intertwined these two…
The rules and regulations of the future Formula 2 series are to be finalized in a few weeks’ time, thus we are throwing some ideas into the designated, purposeful box.
1986 marked the first only time before the 2014 season when Formula 1 went all-turbo. Except that the '86 cars went to top fuel dragster territory when it came to specific engine output. Stay on track and try not to explode.
...yes, it has a freshman Senna, too.
Arguably one of the most expensive Grands Prix to attend on race weekend, but it's an open town, right? I can just find a way around it...
Cricket is considered to be the most impenetrable game for non-Englishmen to comprehend. Being English I cannot understand why foreigners might struggle to grasp the appeal of sitting on a wooden bench and watching 22 men occasionally move on-and-off a large field for five days, but believe me when I tell you that a…
Promenade des Anglais, Nice, France - 22 April, 1946
What makes Monaco the most wanted trophy for Formula One drivers? Let's hear it from them.
The Hungaroring. Dull track for single-seaters, yes. But there is an underlying subtext that makes it a - nevertheless - interesting event to have on the Formula One calendar. Bit of history and facts.
Believe it or not, the 2014 Formula One season is already halfway over. With ten out of nineteen rounds completed, we've already seen plenty of action on-track as well as off-track. Battles for points, positions, and rule changes have made this season different from any we've seen in the past few years, and despite…
"1" is the best racing movie of 2014. It starts with the 1996 crash of Martin Brundle in the Australian Grand Prix, where everything went right. The crash was horrendous. But no fire. Safety officials on the scene to pull Brundle from the wreck. Race red flagged. Brundle sprints to Dr. Sid Watkins, the F1 medical…
"The Monaco GP is the race that defines/highlights the pinnacle of motorsports" - Formula One fans could argue. If that is the case, there is something utterly wrong with one's concept about racing. Or not. Here's why.
There have always been people in motorsports who turned all conventions upside down, breaking new grounds. Sometimes it's in-your-face visible, sometimes it's modestly subtle. Engineer Nicolas Perrin is doing a quiet revolution for all of us.
The best ever tributes by his greatest rival and his son.
What can you say about the man everything has been told of - and yet no words have been capable of capturing his being? You just retell the tale again and again until he becomes a legend.
In the heartland of England, a not much covered press conference took place about probably one of the most exciting racing series in the future. Here are some samples.
Many racing team - manufacturer combinations have resulted in some really cool road cars in the past decades. Here's one that could have been totally awesome/weird.
