Sebastian gets down to business in Fiorano
Sebastian gets down to business in Fiorano Maranello, 2 December – Last Saturday, Sebastian Vettel did his first laps as a Scuderia Ferrari driver, at the wheel of an F2012, at the Fiorano track. The German did around a hundred laps and it wasn't just a case of getting to know the team, the track and the car's systems: after a few cautious runs, he began to push and enjoy himself, even though the damp track meant conditions were tricky with less than optimal grip. In this video, you can see some spectacular highlights from Seba...[Read more...]

Brazilian GP – North America to South America
Brazilian GP – North America to South America Maranello, 4 November – After the North American round, the Formula 1 circus flies 8000 kilometres to South America and the Brazilian capital city of Sao Paolo. It's more than just distance that separates the two venues, as we go from the crisp modern facility that is the Circuit of the Americas to the 'characterful' and cramped Interlagos paddock. And while both circuits run anti-clockwise, the Brazilian track, the second shortest on the calendar after Monaco, requires a different approa...[Read more...]

1956 Argentine Grand Prix: Least in the Kingdom is Greater
 Speaking of the power of humility, the Bible says the least, within the context of the world, if they follow God's commands, shall be greater than those considered great. To say that Luigi Musso was the least within the kingdom of Scuderia Ferrari would be a terrible understatement. Having a reputation for caring more about his cars than those that pilot them, it was certainly true that Enzo held little place in his heart for his fellow Italian. However, in the Roman's very first Formula One...[Read more...]

SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX PREVIEW
SINGAPORE GRAND PRIX PREVIEW SINGAPORE – Character counts for a lot in F1, and for any new circuit on the F1 calendar, the establishment of a recognizable identity is half the battle in attracting a fan base and holding on to your slot on the schedule. We'll spare the blushes of those that have fallen by the wayside and instead point to Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina and Austin's COTA as two places that have done a decent job of building a good identity – one as high tech, the other down home, over the past few years. How...[Read more...]

I spent a lot of time when I was young karting in Italy, so I got to know a few places like Lake Garda, Napoli in Northern Italy and Parma, which has a great karting circuit. The level of karting is quite high in Italy because there are a lot of manufacturers there. I have some friends in Italy from the karting days and also ...[Read more...]

RICCIARDO AND VETTEL PREVIEW THE BELGIAN GRAND PRIX
RICCIARDO AND VETTEL PREVIEW THE BELGIAN GRAND PRIX Daniel Ricciardo 'Above all, Spa is a racing circuit - one that really encourages exciting wheel-to-wheel action. That said, F1 has changed over the years, and whereas Eau Rouge and Blanchimont were once the stand out sections, now it's probably the Pouhon downhill left-hander at Turns 10 and 11. That's seriously, seriously fast – and probably a good place to watch the race from for anyone prepared for a bit of a hike through the Ardennes. Of course, given the Belgium Grand Prix draws i...[Read more...]
Hungarian GP – A gamble that paid off
Hungarian GP – A gamble that paid off Marco Mattiacci: 'It was a great race and very pleasing to see our team fight back from an extremely complicated Saturday. Kimi and Fernando demonstrated just what they are capable of and the whole team was up to the task. However, this result is just a step on a journey which started a few months ago. Fernando's second place is a confidence booster and a sign that the major effort everyone is making to bring Ferrari back to the top is moving in the right direction, however we have to be realist...[Read more...]

VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX
VETTEL AND RICCIARDO PREVIEW THE HUNGARIAN GRAND PRIX Sebastian Vettel I like the race and atmosphere at the Hungaroring and have good memories of the races there. Even though I have never won in Budapest, it is still on my to do list. It is quite a slow track but also one that can catch you out. It has some tight, twisty corners and is quite a bumpy track, so you cannot underestimate it. It is normally hot in Hungary for the race, which makes it a challenge to drive, but also makes a nice weekend for the fans watching. I really like the s...[Read more...]

Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes delivered his share, powering through from 2...[Read more...]
