Then and Now – New Teams

With the FIA inviting tenders for new teams to join the Formula 1 circus from 2015 or 2016, what chance have they got to make a success of it?  The four most recent teams to have been lucky enough to be given an entry (for 2010) haven’t really made much of an impact on the record books: USF1 never really got going and financial troubles from the start meant the most they completed...

Formula 1′s head game

Formula 1 is ripe with seriously challenging circumstances that can ruin your career or life in a matter of seconds and that’s just in the paddock and hospitality area, on track is a whole other challenge.

Changes looming for F1, Red Bull's Vettel that could impact 2014 title run

Sebastian Vettel has dominated Formula One in a fashion unseen since Michael Schumacher's heyday, and perhaps ever. But with big changes in engine technology coming in 2014, some are wondering, even hoping, that the German's days of ruthless control over the starting grid and the top of the podium are numbered. ''I think there is no doubt that it could get boring...

Silverstone records biggest circuit loss in F1 history

Marussia’s financial position was exposed to the light of day this week and it was glimpse of the impact the global economy is having on Formula 1 teams—especially the small teams. Formula 1 has been relatively quiet on what the overall impact has been from TV revenue, advertising, sponsors and hospitality. It doesn’t take too much divination to come to a conclusion about Formula...

Webber: Raikkonen move is good for Alonso

While the press, fans and even Sir Jackie Stewart have been wringing their hands over Ferrari’s appointment of Kimi Raikkonen as Fernando Alonso’s teammate in 2014, other Formula 1 luminaries aren’t seeing it as an explosive train wreck waiting to happen.

Is it the right choice? Will Kimi, Fernando equal fireworks?

While the press ponders the 2014 lineup at Ferrari, we thought we’d ask you about the duo of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen. Gazzetta dello Sport has Sir Jackie Stewart suggesting that the pairing of Kim and Fernando could unsettle Alonso. AUTOSPORT has quoted former Ferrari sporting director, Cesare Fiorio, as saying he thinks the move is conservative and that he would have...

It’s time to rethink the Monaco Grand Prix

On Sunday, Formula 1 held one of its most heralded and storied events, the Monaco Grand Prix. Looking over the list of past winners, you find names like the late great Ayrton Senna, Sir Stirling Moss, and Sir Jackie Stewart. Sunday’s race would add another entry to the history books, but at the same time, it raised a question or two. The Monaco Grand Prix has long been a signature...

Formula One remains largely a man's world

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL CASEY AP Sports Writer From the moment Susie Wolff first got into her Williams car, she heard the snickers from those questioning whether women belong in Formula One.

F1 remains a tough sell in China

Vettel goes from fan favorite to villain

(Eds: With AP Photos.) By MICHAEL CASEY AP Sports Writer As Sebastian Vettel has established himself as the most dominant Formula One driver of his generation, racing fans have come to see him as the boyish, fun-loving face of the glamorous sport.
