Another day of Formula One preseason testing, another struggle for McLaren-Honda. Indeed "Struggle" could be branded on the side of the MP4-30 (in place of, say, a missing title sponsor) as a theme for McLaren's year so far. At the first test in Jerez, Spain, McLaren managed just 79 laps (Red Bull had the next fewest at 166). Last week in Barcelona, Spain, McLaren's total improved—slightly—to 124. Thursday, the first day of the final preseason test, also in Barcelona, Jenson Button completed just seven laps before a hydraulic leak ended his day, as the team announced on Twitter: It...

Fernando Alonso has left hospital looking fit and well, but will miss the third and final Formula One pre-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona. McLaren reserve driver Kevin Magnussen will share the MP4-30 with Jenson Button. The Spaniard suffered a concussion in a crash during Day 4 of the second test and spent three nights under observation in hospital; there are fears he may also have to sit out the season-opening race in Australia. While Alonso will not be at the Circuit de Catalunya, Force India will be there—and they'll have a new toy to play with. The 2015 VJM08 is finally... 


Fernando Alonso’s Formula 1 Testing Accident Handled Poorly by McLaren

Published: February 25, 2015

commentNo Comments

In the aftermath of Fernando Alonso's bizarre accident at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya last Sunday, there was only one thing you could be sure of amid all the uncertainty: The lack of broadcast coverage of Formula One pre-season testing is both good and bad, depending on how you view it. Let's start with the bad. Soon after Alonso's McLaren MP4-30 came to a halt at Turn 3, social media—as has become the norm in these situations—was awash with all sorts of conspiracy theories surrounding the nature of the shunt. Stories, as reported by The Telegraph's Daniel Johnson, that the... 


Power Ranking the Formula 1 Teams After 2nd Pre-Season Test in Barcelona

Romain Grosjean set the pace at the second Formula One pre-season test at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona—but no one truly believes his Lotus team have an advantage at this stage. Rather, it appears last season's dominant champions, Mercedes, have the best overall package. Nico Rosberg's Day 4 lap of one minute, 24.321 seconds was set on the medium tyres. Rivals Red Bull, Ferrari and Williams were slower on the soft compound. Grosjean was on the supersofts. Eight of the ten teams hoping to compete in the 2015 season were present with their new cars, while Force India focused on tyre work;...

Two-thirds of Formula One's 2015 pre-season schedule has been completed, leaving the teams and drivers with just four full days of testing ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on March 15. After kicking off their winter preparations at the Jerez circuit at the beginning of February, the F1 fraternity moved on to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for last week's second test, and it will remain at the home of the Spanish Grand Prix for the final test, which begins on Thursday. In truth, testing has thrown up few surprises so far, as Mercedes, the reigning world champions, remain the... 


5 Great Moments from Alain Prost’s Formula 1 Career

Published: February 24, 2015

commentNo Comments

Alain Prost was one of the greatest drivers Formula One has ever seen. Hailing from Lorette in central France, Prost made his debut in 1980 for McLaren. A points-scorer in his first grand prix, a switch to Renault in 1981 brought his first race win. Quick, intelligent and a master of race management, he could easily have won three world championships by the time his first arrived in 1985. Further titles in 1986, 1989 and 1993 cemented Prost's place in the history books. At the time of his retirement in 1993 he held the records for the most points, wins, fastest laps, podiums and points finishes....

F1 Cars Already Showing Midseason Speeds at End of Second Preseason Test

Published: February 22, 2015

commentNo Comments

It may only be the end of the second Formula One preseason test, but many of the cars are already in midseason form—midseason 2014, anyway. While the big headline from the final day of the test was Fernando Alonso's high-speed crash (thankfully, his only injury was a concussion), the lap times turned in over the last four days should cause everyone to take notice. On Sunday, Lotus' Romain Grosjean set a fastest lap of one minute and 24.067 seconds. That time is quicker than both the pole lap and fastest lap from the 2014 Spanish Grand Prix, also held at the Circuit de Catalunya outside Barcelona. Grosjean's... 


Lessons Learned from 2nd Formula 1 Test in Barcelona

The second Formula One pre-season test ended on Sunday with Romain Grosjean leading the way in Barcelona. The Lotus man set the benchmark on Day 4 with a time of 1:24.067 seconds, but his wasn't the lap that caught the eye. Less than an hour later, Nico Rosberg set the second-best lap of the test—a 1:24.321. Grosjean was on the supersoft tyres, the quickest of Pirelli's four compounds; Rosberg used the mediums, the second-slowest. Small details such as these are vital when trying to interpret what times from pre-season testing mean, but some information remains out of reach. Fuel loads and...
