I was able to open a gap, which was important. I felt very good on the soft tires and was competitive, I could have stayed out even longer I think, but at some stage you have to cover.

|A French Canadian|
|There was hardly a more popular driver up and down the Formula One pit lane, as well as with those occupying the grandstands, than France's Jean Alesi. Once fancied to be a World Champion in the making, the ever-fighting, hard-charging driver had failed to achieve even a single victory. But then came the Canadian Grand Prix.
Jean Alesi had joined Scuderia Ferrari in 1991 and took over as the face of the team after Alain Prost's sacking. Alesi was ideal for the role. The Frenchman was not a W...[Read more...]|
|PAYING TRIBUTE TO A TRUE RACING LEGEND|
|MILTON KEYNES, UK – Twenty years ago on this date, Formula One lost one of its true giants, a driver who came to define in the public imagination what a racing driver should be.
Daring, committed, focused, impossibly brave, ruthless and relentless – Ayrton Senna was all of those things, but in addition he possessed the rare ability to translate his experience of being a world class sportsman operating at the height of his powers into language the layman could understand and readily ide...[Read more...]|

|MILTON KEYNES, UK - While Mark Webber's rivals relaxed at the end of a grueling 18-race Formula One season, the intrepid Aussie embarked on the cycling leg of his charity challenge in Tasmania. He was tearing along the dirt tracks near Hobart when everything suddenly went blank. Mark woke up in hospital after being hit by a car. His lightning quick reactions saw him get his torso out the way of its bullbars, but his trailing right leg didn't make it. The fibula was smashed in the impact....[Read more...]|
|An Era of Perspective|
|Everyone loves a champion. At least that is the saying. But it isn't necessarily true. Instead, everyone loves their champion. When another proves to be equal or stronger, then all reason slips through the window when judging skill.
The lamentations would resume in earnest following the dominant performance at Spa by Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull. Suddenly, there was this feeling of resignation, of needing to face reality. Just when it seemed there would be a titanic battle between Ve...[Read more...]|
|Renault's Constructors' Titles|
|The 2012 title is the 11th constructors' championship that Renault has taken in the sport. After joining forces with Williams at the end of the 80s, the first constructors' championship came in 1992.
It was then followed by successive titles in 1993 and 1994. Renault teamed up with Benetton in 1995 and immediately took another crown, before Williams again took the title in 1996 and 1997; the sixth consecutive title to be powered by Renault. After a brief hiatus from the sport Renault returned...[Read more...]|
