There’s no F1 race this weekend but there’s a whole world of F1 alternatives to choose from. The Indy car race at the Milwaukee Mile was traditionally held the weekend following the Indianapolis 500. That tradition has been restored this year as the IRL cars return to Milwaukee this weekend – following the prestigious Indy … Continue reading This week’s F1 alternative: Indy car Milwaukee
In the F1 news this week the safety car drivers that race each other every F1 weekend. Plus the fallout from 2005 United States Grand Prix is still in the air, Lewis Hamilton’s little brother gets an F1 trophy, and the Goodwood Festival of Speed is coming up.
The Monaco Grand Prix was everything and nothing that F1 should be. The glamour and sheer exhilaration of the cars flying around the streets was tempered by the shameless commercialism of the event and the total absence of overtaking. The darling of the British press Lewis Hamilton believes he was robbed of the win by … Continue reading The Ben Evans Column – Thoughts on Monaco
The FIA has cleared McLaren of any wrongdoing in the Monaco Grand Prix. The governing body stated that the team brought Hamilton into the pits earlier than necessary to avoid his race being compromised if the safety car had come out. They agreed McLaren would have been “foolish” to do otherwise. But there are still … Continue reading McLaren cleared by FIA over Monaco ‘team orders’
Anthony Davidson made two criticisms of the race stewards at the Monaco Grand Prix. Ordinarily you’d dismiss this as the whingeing of a driver who didn’t get the job done. But he’s actually right on both counts. The stewards failed to discipline two drivers who cut part of the course. And it strongly looks as … Continue reading Bad rule calls screwed Davidson’s race

Michael Schumacher will give the retired French international footballer Zinedine Zidane a passenger ride at the French Grand Prix. You can’t miss the irony. Both retired last year despite stoking great controversy in their swansong seasons. Schumacher was thrown to the back of the grid at Monte-Carlo for deliberately blocking the circuit. Zidane was sent … Continue reading Michael Schumacher and Zinedine Zidane
I couldn’t let it pass without remarking that The Sun has christened Lewis Hamilton ‘Our Lewis’. Twelve months ago they didn’t know who he was – much less care. Now he’s ‘Our Lewis’, there’s papperazi outside his house and he’ll probably leave the country to get away from them.
The Monaco Grand Prix threw up plenty of fascinating facts: The fewest retirements in 46 years, the first consecutive winners in over a decade, and yet more astonishing records for that man Lewis Hamilton. Plus McLaren and Ferrari’s domination continues – and Honda finally get on terms with Super Aguri.
Dario Franchitti won the 91st Indianapolis 500 as rain fell and brought an early end to the race. The pack was already running under caution following a spectacular collision between Marco Andretti and Dan Wheldon. Andretti moved high on the track to pass two cars but Wheldon was already there. The two clashed wheels and … Continue reading Franchitti wins rain-hit Indy 500
McLaren are under investigation for allegedly using team orders to influence the outcome of yesterday’s race in favour of Fernando Alonso over Lewis Hamilton. Team orders were banned after the 2002 Austrian Grand Prix, when Ferrari ordered Rubens Barrichello to let Michael Schumacher win. McLaren ordered their drivers to hold station after the first round … Continue reading Outrage over McLaren ‘team orders’
Ralf Schumacher is the second highest-paid driver in Formula 1. He earns more money than double world champion Fernando Alonso. These are his results compared to Toyota team mate Jarno Trulli so far this year:
The battle for pole position at Monte-Carlo was a private McLaren affair from start to finish. After a three round battle between Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton the world champion came out on top. Plus there was a bonus for the team when Kimi Raikkonen damaged his Ferrari and consigned himself to 16th on the … Continue reading Monaco Grand Prix 2007 qualifying – McLaren lock-out
Eddie Jordan is Marmite personified. To some he’s F1’s much-missed wheeler-dealer cheeky chappy – but plenty of others remember him as a whingeing upstart whose team might have been more successful ahd he run a tighter ship. This being an autobiography it will doubtless provide plenty of fodder for both sides to support their points … Continue reading “An Independent Man – the Autobiography” (Eddie Jordan, 2007)
Pastor Maldonado repeated his Monaco Renault World Series race win of 2006 in this year’s GP2 race. The Venezuelan comfortably took pole from Giorgio Pantano by 0.3s and led the Italian home in the race as well. Behind them came the championship top three – Timo Glock, Luca Fillipi and Lucas di Grassi.
