Fists Waving and Lots of Fun at European Grand Prix Quaifying

Giancarlo Fisichella was quite the sight berating Jacques Villeneuve.  Fisichela stormed into the BMW Sauber pit lane between the last two sessions of qualifying and looked like he wanted Jacques to step out of his car and go at it mano-a-mano.  He was still fuming quite a while afterwards, and it appears that the stewards heard him…

San Marino Grand Prix Win Signals a Return for Ferrarii?

I bet Pat Symonds is kicking himself right now.  Fernando Alonso was being held up by Michael Schumacher, who was struggling in his Ferrari, so Renault tries to get some faster laps for Alonso by calling him in early.  The problem was that Ross Brawn simply called Schumacher in on the next lap and he exits just…

Excitement Down Under at the Australian Grand Prix

Wasn’t that an exciting finish to the Australian Grand Prix??  I’m not talking about Fernando Alonso winning the race – that was a forgone conclusion as soon as he took the lead.  No, I mean the way Jenson Button’s Honda engine exlpoded on the main straight within pushing distance of the finish line.  Martin Brundle…

F1 Season Starts with Some Excitement in Bahrain

I personnally think that Kimi Raikkonen should start from the back of the grid at every race!! It was really exciting to watch him come through the field from 22nd on the grid to finish third.  A podium finish from last place is an accomplishment, so much so that Fernando Alonso, who won the race for…

Bahrain F1 Grand Prix Qualifying

If Kimi Raikkonen did not have bad luck, he would have no luck at all.  Last year he won more races than Fernando Alonso but still managed to lose the championship due to not finishing as many of them.  This year looks like it might be starting the same way after the rear wing of…

Friday Free Practive at the Bahrain Grand Prix

I love the first practice day of the first grand prix of the season.  All the drivers are making bold statements as to why they did well or not, but the lap times mean almost nothing.  Looking at the lap times for the day you have Anthony Davidson, a test driver from the Honda team on top…
