Despite heavy overnight rain there was little sign of drivers taking a risk averse approach to the session and after a short lull following the green lights being turned on, Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Räikkönen got things going. The Finn traded a couple of P1 timesRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The 2019 Formula One season is now in the books and the last third of it didn’t disappoint. There are drivers and teams who flourished with some getting more respect than others, while others never figured their flaw out.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer First seven rounds of the 2019 Formula One World Championship – underwhelming to the bordeom. Last seven rounds however – sheer utter chaos with minimal boredom. From the rise of Charles Leclerc at Spa and Monza to the beautiful rally by Max Verstappen at Hockenheim. There was a lot to digest during the second leg of the F1 campaign and it’s time to recap my seven most memorable moments.

You had Danil Kvyat, a guyRead More

Even the battle for “Best of the Rest” has seen some twists and turns people didn’t expect. Although it may be a Silver ArrowRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Four rounds completed and it’s safe to say that Scuderia Ferrari are nowhere near title contenders. Not because they’ve just had rotten luck, but they’ve been out beat when it matters most, the grand prix races. It shows as they only have 99 points in the Constructor’s Championship to Mercedes-AMG F1’s 173 and have swept the first two steps of the podium in every grand prix thus far. Sure, the duo of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc have been fierce in the free practice sessions, butRead More
