Kimi should have slowed down

One of the mild controversies to come out of the British Grand Prix was the accident involving Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa. Massa, for his part, was an innocent by-stander caught in the wrong place at the wrong time but he did comment to AUTOSPORT when queried about the incident when asked if Kimi should have came back on track more cautiously: “For sure” “Kimi went outside...

Race Report- The Smiling Assassin wins in Canada

The notion of having a “Dream Season” in which you win every grand prix has come to end for Mercedes. Having won the first six races of the season, Mercedes experienced an MGU-K failure on both cars reducing power (slowing them by 20mph down the back straight) and eventually halting Lewis Hamilton’s race. Hamilton’s teammate, Nico Rosberg, was able to finish the race but...

F1 Power Units – number used so far

After the Monaco race review podcast and in the forum, there has been some discussion on the number of power unit components used by each driver to date.   It was pointed out on both the main page and forum that the FIA publish the number of units used on the Thursday before each race.  On this basis I have collected the data of the usage to date and will see if I can draw any...

Felipe…stay cool baby

There are certainly a few ways to look at Felipe Massa’s recent rant on AUTOSPORT and I’ll choose to take the positive approach. Felipe is not happy with the bad luck he feels he’s having of late and that’s good. We haven’t seen that kind of fire from him in quite a while so it is a positive sign to see the Brazilian fired up over his season.  Massa told AUTOSPORT: ...

The real story of Bahrain is teammate vs. teammate

If the Bahrain race was anything it was Mercedes AMG drawing a line in the sand, it was also a case study in teammate battles not just for the Mercedes Benz team at the front, but all the way through the field and possibly an indication of what we can look forward to for the rest of this already quite different F1 season. While the complaining is still in full effect in regards to...

Race Report: F1 TV got ‘good racing’ right this time

The Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday saw a resurgent Lewis Hamilton take the victory but I’d like to talk about the sound of the cars…just kidding. The grand prix was a dry-weather affair with the threat of potential rain. The possibility had some teams running long stints in case it should begin to but the typical Malaysian afternoon storm never factored. Mercedes were the class...

Massa: ‘Fernando is…I mean, Valtteri is faster than you’

These may not be the words Williams F1 driver Felipe Massa wanted to hear in just his second outing with his new employer but in today’s Malaysian Grand Prix, the haunting radio message received by the Brazilian was very familiar indeed: In the Malaysian Grand Prix, Massa’s teammate was quicker and the Brazilian was ordered to let him through. What a difference a regulation...

Williams anticipate gains with 2014 regulations, Massa

Reading Edd Straw’s article at AUTOSPORT today, I was reminded of the hill that Williams F1 has to climb to get back to even 2012 performance levels after a miserable outing in 2013. The 2014 regulation changes have given some new optimism for the team but as Claire Williams explained to Mr. Straw, the teams who did well last year will most likely be the teams to beat in 2014:...
