  • I don’t win boring races! – Ricciardo on crazy China triumph

    Daniel Ricciardo likes to do it the hard way. His sensational victory in China on Sunday was the sixth of his career. In all of them, he has never started the race higher than fourth. And once again, his trademark overtakes were the highlight of an absolute belter of a Grand Prix. Ricciardo came to Shanghai on the back of four retirements in his last six races. And his luck seemed unlikely to turn when he suffered an engine problem in FP3. But after recovering to sixth in qualifying and then running there for most of the race, the Red...

    I did not see results in the live thread, so they are at the bottom of this post. Here is a summary. Sebastian Vettel won the 200th race of his Formula One career after soaking up pressure from Valtteri Bottas in the Bahrain Grand Prix. The Ferrari driver came under strong pressure after the team scrapped plans for a second pit stop and left him out until the end of the race on what they described as “Plan D” on the radio. He crossed the finishing line less than seven tenths of a second ahead of Bottas, who made an...

    Sebastian Vettel beat Lewis Hamilton to victory in the Australian Grand Prix in a race which swung on a mid-race Virtual Safety Car period. Vettel took the lead when Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen pitted early on. However the VSC was deployed after Romain Grosjean’s Haas stopped on-track, which allowed Vettel to make his pit stop and come out still ahead of Hamilton.

    Ferrari set the fastest time on the final day of F1 testing; but do they have the fastest car? Few think so, as Mercedes has certainly not gone all out to set eye catching lap times. Ferrari has been the pace setter the past few winters, including last year when it was clear that the car was really fast and stable. This year the car looks drivable, but so does the Red Bull. Following the pattern of previous seasons, the Silver Arrows have spent their time pounding around on harder tyre compounds, higher fuel loads and very much focussing on...

    The news that the legendary Dan Gurney died on Sunday night after a long battle with pneumonia was something racing legends Mario Andretti and Bobby Unser had difficulty accepting. Although they knew Gurney was in failing health, the fact that he was a “Mount Rushmore of Auto Racing” figure made him bigger-than-life to drivers who have been described in the same vein. “It’s one freaking sad day,” an emotional Unser told Autoweek in a phone interview Sunday night. Andretti echoed those sentiments from his home in Nazareth, Pennsylvania, on Sunday evening.

    Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton apologizes after telling nephew ‘boys don’t wear princess dresses’Lewis Hamilton was forced to apologize after gender-shaming his nephew. The Formula One driver posted a video on Christmas of his nephew wearing a pink and purple dress and waving a wand. “I'm so sad right now. Look at my nephew,” Hamilton said in the now-deleted video. “Why are you wearing a princess dress? Is this what you got for Christmas? Why did you ask for a princess dress for Christmas? Boys don't wear princess dresses.” The 32-year-old Brit faced backlash online, including from Liam Hackett, the...

    Lewis Hamilton has admitted he could consider 'taking a knee' at October's United States GP as protests continue to sweep through the NFL. Hundreds of NFL players have knelt down during the American national anthem in recent weeks in response to stinging criticism from President Donald Trump with Hamilton publicly supporting their protests on social media. And when Formula 1 heads to Austin for round 17 of the 2017 season in October, the championship leader says he will have to start thinking about taking a knee himself on the grid when the anthem plays before the race.
