Robert Kubica’s Rally Crash, 5 Years On: What Could He Have Achieved in F1?

Published: February 6, 2016

commentNo Comments

Perhaps he simply lacked the global appeal of the sport's biggest names. Perhaps he was just denied the time, the opportunities and the good fortune to ensure his quality was indisputable. Or maybe, like Nico Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas today, public perception of him was blurred by his failure to slaughter his supposedly unfashionable, less talented team-mates. But there always seemed to be a strange reluctance to embrace Robert Kubica as one of the great drivers of modern Formula One, despite making the so-called holy trinity—Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso—all... 


The Top 5 Renault Formula 1 Liveries

Published: February 5, 2016

commentNo Comments

Over nearly 20 years in Formula One, the Renault team has produced several beautiful (and a few not-so-beautiful) liveries. The colour scheme unveiled this week in Paris—as part of the launch ceremony reintroducing the French team as a constructor, rather than solely an engine supplier—definitely falls in the not-so-beautiful category. While the current trend is for teams to introduce their new cars online or in the pit lane at the first winter test session, Renault decided to actually hold a launch event. And the response was, well...meh. The big story—that Kevin Magnussen is... 


F1 2016 Head-to-Head: Valtteri Bottas vs. Felipe Massa at Williams

Published: February 4, 2016

commentNo Comments

Williams will field an unchanged lineup for the 2016 Formula One season, with veteran Felipe Massa once again partnered by rising star Valtteri Bottas. The ideal mix of experience and youth has seen the Grove-based team secure third place in the constructors' championship for two years in a row, and Williams will be hoping that stability in their driver pairing will lead to further success in the year ahead. Massa and Bottas should know each other very well by now—of all the 2016 team-mate pairings, only Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg at Mercedes have been together for longer. The lengthy... 


Formula 1′s Latest Rumours and Talk: Renault Launch, Kevin Magnussen and More

Published: February 4, 2016

commentNo Comments

The car on show may only have been a 2015-style chassis with a lifeless (albeit interim) livery, but Renault's return to the Formula One grid felt close enough to touch in Paris on Wednesday. Following its purchase of the Enstone-based Lotus team at the end of 2015, the manufacturer held a team-launch event in the French capital, where it outlined its plans for the new season and beyond. Although the company has a long and proud history in the sport, the message from chief executive Carlos Ghosn was clear: Renault is at the start of a very long and bumpy road back to the top of F1. After being... 


Is Formula 1 Missing an Opportunity with Boring Car Launches in 2016?

Published: February 3, 2016

The first Formula One pre-season test is less than a month away, and we're entering "launch season"—the time when the teams show off their cars for the year ahead. In days gone by, these launches would often be extravagant parties featuring beautiful backdrops or world-famous celebrity guests. Fans who recall the 1990s will remember McLaren's glitzy 1997 launch of the MP4/12, where Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard were joined on stage at London's Alexandra Palace by the Spice Girls—at the time, one of the world's most popular pop groups. It was a little bit awkward and ever so slightly... 


Realistic Expectations for Mercedes in 2016 Formula 1 Season

Published: February 2, 2016

commentNo Comments

It was soon after Lewis Hamilton's victory in the Belgian Grand Prix on August 23 last year when Mercedes' 2016 season began. His sixth victory of 2015 at Spa-Francorchamps saw Hamilton extend his points lead over team-mate Nico Rosberg to 28 points and establish a 67-point advantage over third-placed Sebastian Vettel, instantly stifling the excitement surrounding the Ferrari driver's victory at the previous round in Hungary. With just eight races remaining, the title was almost theirs, the fat lady was beginning to clear her throat and their work for the year was, to all intents and purposes,... 


F1′s Latest Rumours, Talk: Kevin Magnussen at Renault, Esteban Gutierrez, More

Published: February 1, 2016

Renault's return to Formula One will move a step closer this week when the French manufacturer stages a team-launch event in Paris. As chief executive officer Carlos Ghosn told French publication Le Figaro (h/t Motorsport.com) last December, the occasion will allow Renault to reveal the specific details of their return, including their aspirations, their sponsors and, it seems, their drivers. Signed alongside rookie Jolyon Palmer, Pastor Maldonado had been expected to lead the factory outfit in the 2016 season. But complications between Renault and the Venezuelan's personal sponsor are almost certain... 


4 Things We Learned from Paul Ricard Wet-Weather Formula 1 Tyre Test

Published: February 1, 2016

commentNo Comments

The first on-track Formula One action of 2016 took place at the Paul Ricard Circuit in southern France, as three of the teams tested Pirelli's new wet-weather tyres. Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull put the rubber through its paces on January 25 and 26, completing a total of 2,326 kilometres. The weather was cool but fine, so Paul Ricard's advanced sprinkler system was used to simulate a variety of wet track conditions for the five drivers taking part. A number of different experimental compounds were used, with the aim of the test being to help Pirelli develop an improved full-wet tyre for 2016 and... 


Will American Formula 1 Fans Accept Haas as a Truly ‘American’ Team?

Published: January 31, 2016

commentNo Comments

Speaking with Haas Formula One team principal Guenther Steiner in Montreal last summer, I made the mistake of asking how important it was for Haas to be seen as an American team. "I wouldn't say the question is how much you want to be seen—we don't want to be seen. We are an American team," Steiner responded. Indeed, the new team's headquarters are in Kannapolis, North Carolina, but when Marussia folded in 2014, Haas also purchased its old factory in Banbury, about 125 kilometres northwest of London. Haas' racing operations will be run from that Oxfordshire base, for logistical... 


Kevin Magnussen Replacing Pastor Maldonado Will Change Tone of Renault F1 Return

Whenever a leading car manufacturer arrives on the scene in Formula One, it doesn't take them long to begin their pursuit of a leading driver.  A marquee signing—a statement of intent—who personifies the ambitions of a company determined to demonstrate they mean business both on and off track. In recent years, two of the biggest organisations to return to F1 have followed that exact strategy. Mercedes signed Michael Schumacher, the most successful driver in history with seven world championships and 91 grand prix victories, shortly after their purchase of the Brawn GP team...
