McLaren’s Selection of Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button Was the Right Decision

Published: December 12, 2014

In the end, the wait was worth it. On Thursday morning, McLaren ended months of speculation over their driver line-up, announcing Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button as their race drivers for 2015. Kevin Magnussen, who was impressive, but not spectacular in his rookie campaign, will take a step back, becoming the team's test and reserve driver. Alonso is one of the top drivers in the world, and it was a coup for McLaren to sign him away from Ferrari. He will now headline the return of Honda as McLaren's engine supplier starting next year. But Alonso's arrival in Woking was...

McLaren Honda has finally confirmed the signing of Fernando Alonso for the 2015 Formula One season, and he will join Jenson Button, after the Brit's future was clarified during Thursday's announcement in Woking. The official McLaren Twitter account provided confirmation of the team's driver lineup for next season: Daniel Johnson of The Telegraph reports on Alonso and Button's salary in the new deal: Telegraph Sport understands part of the deal includes a significant pay cut from £12 million a year to less than £8m. Negotiations with Ron Dennis, the McLaren chairman, only... 


Formula 1′s Latest Rumours and Talk: McLaren Again, Hulkenberg in Porsche, More

McLaren are set to announce their 2015 Formula One driver lineup on Thursday, bringing to an end months of delays, speculation and uncertainty. With Fernando Alonso arriving from Ferrari, either Jenson Button or Kevin Magnussen will be left without a drive. Many sources say Button will keep his seat, but confirmation is still needed. It's difficult to see a way back for whichever driver is left out in the cold. Nico Hulkenberg has no such troubles, with two contracts in his pocket for next year. He will race at Le Mans for Porsche while also competing for Force India in F1, and has had his first... 


Where Does Lewis Hamilton Rank on List of F1′s Greatest Drivers?

Published: December 10, 2014

commentNo Comments

The first act of Lewis Hamilton's Formula One career opened with such promise. In 2007, he won four races and nearly stole the title from his more experienced rivals, Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso. The following year, he did win at the final corner of the final lap of the final race. But then followed a long second act, where Hamilton's resolve was tested both professionally and personally. Four more seasons at McLaren did not yield a finish higher than fourth in the drivers' championship. A surprising move to Mercedes for 2013 showed flashes of promise—five pole positions, a win in... 


Ranking the Top 5 Formula 1 Driver Helmets of 2014

Published: December 10, 2014

commentNo Comments

Formula One helmets are not what they used to be. They still, of course, protect drivers from injury, but their meaning—particularly in recent years as drivers have swapped helmets on a weekly basis—has expanded significantly. As well as being an integral part of a competitor's survival kit, helmets are now the racing driver's equivalent of a personal statement. They are used to echo a sense of patriotism, to deliver messages and well wishes and, essentially, to have a little fun. The view of helmets as fashion accessories has led to many weird and wonderful designs gracing the grid,... 


Lewis Hamilton Should Have Been Given F1 Crown at Abu Dhabi, Not FIA Ceremony

Published: December 9, 2014

commentNo Comments

"This is the greatest day of my life," declared Lewis Hamilton during the FIA podium interviews following his victory in last month's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. In winning at the Yas Marina circuit, the British driver secured his second Formula One World Championship and with it a place alongside the most iconic names in the sport's history. But he had very little to show for it. If it had not been for a series of post-race donuts, some excitable team radio messages, the waving of a British flag from the cockpit and the shedding of a tear or two in the pre-podium cool-down room, virtually nothing... 


Grading the Formula 1 Teams on Their 2014 Performances

Published: December 9, 2014

commentNo Comments

The first season of the new V6 turbo hybrid era saw a one-team demolition of the field. In 19 races, Mercedes took 18 poles and 16 wins and set 12 fastest laps. Their closest challengers, Red Bull, managed just three wins—each as the result of a Mercedes error. But while the battle at the front was an all-silver affair, the contest further down the order was a sea of colour. Red Bull, Williams, Ferrari, McLaren, Force India and Toro Rosso all scored points on a regular basis, with the competitive order often changing on a race-to-race basis. Further back, we witnessed Lotus and Sauber struggling... 


5 Venues We’d Love to See Added to the F1 Circuit

Published: December 8, 2014

Last week, a 21-race calendar was revealed ahead of the 2015 Formula One season. It featured each of the events that took place during the 2014 campaign as well as two "new" additions: Mexico, returning to the calendar for the first time since 1992, and, curiously, Korea. The Korean Grand Prix was previously a presence on the schedule between 2010 and '13, when the Yeongam track fell off the calendar having consistently produced dull races and failed to gain any popularity among competitors and spectators alike. The news of its return, then, was met with despair and a feeling that the Korean GP... 


Why an Engine Change in 2016 Is Not the Best Option for Formula 1

Published: December 8, 2014

commentNo Comments

From the moment the first of Formula One's new hybrid "power units" fired up at the season-opening test at Jerez, they've faced a never-ending barrage of criticism. Some said they were too quiet. Others that they were too complex, too gimmicky, too computerised or too green. The chorus of opposition has waxed and waned throughout the year, but it has been matched by a more sustained, growing chorus of approval. Though not everyone's cup of tea at the start of the year, they seem to have gained the acceptance of most. But as the 2014 season drew to a close, Red Bull team principal Christian Horner... 


Ferrari Fans Welcome Sebastian Vettel to the Team During Fiorano Test Session

November 29 was a very important day for Sebastian Vettel. On a damp track, he took his first laps in a Ferrari at the team's test circuit in Fiorano, Italy.  He was finally out on his own, away from the Red Bull family who had nurtured his career since he was a teenager and with whom he won four Formula One world championships. November 29 was also a very important day for Ferrari. It marked the end of the once-promising Fernando Alonso era and the beginning of the Vettel era. The last time a world champion German driver joined the Scuderia, he ended up winning five drivers' titles. The...
