Lewis Hamilton takes dominant Abu Dhabi pole!

Lewis Hamilton claimed pole position at Yas Marina for tomorrow’s Abu Dhabi grand prix by 3 1/2 tenths from Mark Webber and 4 1/2 tenths from championship leader Sebastian Vettel. While Vettel’s championship rival Fernando Alonso could only manage seventh on the grid, nearly a second off the pole time of Hamilton, while the Briton’s team mate, Jenson Button is stuck back down in sixth place, almost seven tenths of second off Hamilton, I’m very disappointed with Jenson!

Bernie Ecclestone claims “there’s still too many teams in F1″

Formula 1 commercial rights holder Bernie Ecclestone has been flapping his lips again; this time; the 82 years old is claiming that F1 still has too many teams despite the departure of HRT, who failed to lodge an entry in time for financial reasons. Basically this is because; under the new Concorde Agreement; there would have to be 10 teams or less to trigger a clause which will allow teams to run three cars, which of course suits Ferrari; Bernie is pandering to Maranello & di Montezemolo again!

Formula One Movers & Shakers 2013

It’s been a long closed season but the new season is just two weeks away, testing is firmly underway; but that is not what I am going to talk about as anyone who knows anything about F1 knows that pre-season testing rarely has any relation to form when the Australian GP rolls around.

Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen wins season opener in Melbourne!

2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen won the 2013 Australian Grand Prix from seventh on the grid by managing his tyres while being able to keep up good speed; the Finn only made two stops compared to his rivals who had to make an extra stop. Defending world champion Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, despite starting from pole and initially getting away in the lead, fell back as his tyres started to fade, losing out to both Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso, but held onto a podium!

Controversy abound as Vettel takes Malaysian GP Victory!

Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel claimed victory in Kuala Lumpur in controversial fashion after disobeying a direct team order to hold station while Mark Webber was leading the race. Much like the Australian has been told to do on a number of occasions when Vettel was leading and Webber was faster. Red Bull advisor Dr. Helmut Marko said when asked for his thoughts on Vettel disobeying team orders, “we don’t have #1 AND #2 drivers like Mercedes”, can anyone say hypocrisy? Vettel is clear favourite at Red Bull, you just have to look at Marko’s comments about Webber pre-season for evidence of that. I’m all for all-out-racing, but there has to be equality, Vettel saying sorry after the race means absolutely zero, it’s not like he accidentally overtook the Australian!

Fernando Alonso takes Chinese GP victory from third on the grid!

Fernando Alonso took his first victory of 2013 from third on the starting grid with a measured controlled drive ahead of Lotus’ Kimi Raikkonen and pole sitter Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes. Alonso jumped Raikkonen off the line as the Finn suffered from secondary wheelspin which dropped him back to fourth place as the second Ferrari of Felipe Massa jumped two places to third ahead of Raikkonen. Meanwhile Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton got a good start but failed to pull away enough to stop Alonso and Massa from gaining DRS after the end of the second lap, by lap 5, both Ferrari’s mugged Hamilton at the end of the second DRS zone as the Briton complained of understeer.

Thanks for the kind comments, I do try to be unbiased; but my bias comes out from time to time, I have my favourites like anyone else... I genuinely did enjoy the Bahrain GP!
