F1 : Canadian 2015 GP Preview

Race Day : 7th June

Canada is coming after the most controversial race of the year, with Mercedes messing up Lewis Hamilton’s race strategy we see a semi-deflated Lewis coming to the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal needing to make a statement to his team mate.

Race Day : 24th May

Nothing could have made the last GP in Spain exciting. It marks the start of Rosbergs fight back as he wins his first GP of 2015 but the circus rolls (or rolled) into Monaco this week and he needs to keep up his momentum.

Race Day : 19th April

Mercedes was back to dominating in China last week but with only a week between the last Grand Prix and this Grand Prix at the Bahrain International Circuit we’ll see if they really do have the upper hand or if Ferrari can claw back some of their advantage.

F1 : Chinese 2015 GP Preview

Race Day : 12th April

Malaysia was one of the most fun races I’ve seen in a while. It also gave us a “shock” of seeing a Ferrari back on the top step with the iconic combination of German and Italian national anthems playing one after the other.

It was a good weekend with little to no drama behind the racing but plenty of drama on the track. The way I believe F1 should be.

Two races in and the championship is so much closer then we’d imagine but there is also the question of just how much of a blunder did Mercedes make in their strategy and if Ferrari can really challenge the Mercedes all season long.

We now go on to China!

F1 : Malaysia 2015 GP Preview

Race Day : 29th March

The season opener in Melbourne was nothing to write home about. In fact the off track drama overshadowed the on track lack of drama pretty badly.

That isn’t to say there was nothing to talk about at all. The Mercedes look scarily in charge still and Hamilton has gone back to another level that Rosberg is going to have to top if he wants to challenge his team mate. Williams looks fighty and the Ferrari looks better then it has in recent years, but then again Red Bull look like they’ve taken a step back (or at least the Renault engine has) so maybe the Ferrari just looks better because more people are falling down instead of catching up?

Either way the race was quite dull and we only had 11 finishers from I believe 15 starters anyway! Fernando Alonso was replaced and his replacement never made it to the grid, which might have been a blessing for Kevin as Jenson seemed to be using the race as a extra test day just rolling around at the back of a grid with a bit of a squabble with the Force India of Sergio Perez.

We look to the Grand Prix of Malaysia to turn these things around for us!

F1 : Australia 2015 GP Preview

Race Day : 15th March 2015

The race held at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit around Albert Park Lake opens up the 2015 season. Last year it saw Nico Rosberg on the top step but plenty of the top drivers on the grid have won there.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock you’ll know that it is Lewis Hamilton that shows up to Australia as the World Champion and so far he’s only managed to win on the track once back in 2008.
