F1 : Australian Grand Prix 2016

Well Qualifying was a event in some unspeakable way.  I’m not sure the idea of “shaking up the grid” with it really worked all it managed to do was end Qualifying with 3 minutes on the clock still.

Its the race that counts thought.

F1 : Australian GP Qualifying 2016

So F1 is back.

With it we now have Channel 4 picking up the free to TV deal, half the races live and half in highlight form.

Amanda will be reviewing it again but until she’s back I’ve said I’ll give it a go. She hadn’t done qualifying reviews before and I can’t remember the last time I’ve attempted it so stick with me as I find the best way to review the new qualifying format.

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.

Monaco F1 Grand Prix 2015

Spain proved to be a extremely boring race but one that brought along a result that COULD potentially change the season.

Potentially.

Could.

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.

Spanish F1 Grand Prix 2015

I apologise that there wasn’t a race preview this week I was absolutely sure I’d done one and as I was away at the beginning of the week and didn’t come back till the end of the week when it was a bit late to write one! Not a mistake I plan on making again!

It feels like a lifetime since the last race though!

We left off with quite a fun race in the desert of Bahrain and another win for Lewis Hamilton.

Bahrain F1 Grand Prix 2015

Another poor race in China dampened my hopes that the season was just picking up after a poor opener in Australia but a terrific race in Malaysia.

For all the moaning about the “desert” races I wonder what kind of race we’ll get here in Bahrain?

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.

Chinese F1 Grand Prix 2015

No one would have guessed we’d see Vettel win the race last week. After a bland opening GP in Australia we were treated for some good racing and a “shock” result.

I’ve said now at least twice that China tends to be the forgettable race for me. Will this weekend be the first time I care about a Chinese GP?

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!
