Nico Rosberg: Life After Motor Racing

It was quite apt that Lewis Hamilton this week told the media that racing against his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg was like playing out a “game of poker”. The strategy and mechanics that makeup both sports are extremely similar – and there’s a lot of psychology involved in both sports. But probably the most fitting

Aussie Dan

Daniel

When Australians do well on the international stage, I’m reminded of how small and remote we are as a nation. We’re a population of 23 million occupying a landmass much the same size as the US. We are an island – physically and metaphorically. We are miles from pretty much everywhere – but we do

So Near But JEV So Far…

Perhaps the phrase earth-shattering is a tad overstating the news, but confirmation that Max Verstappen will take the place of Jean-Eric Vergne at Toro Rosso next season is unquestionably a huge headline. Max “Son-of-the-Boss” Verstappen’s tender age has been the main focus of the story, but Vergne’s imminent departure also deserves some thought – A

Are Caterham in crisis?

Caterham have had a very poor half of 2014. The Renault engine is under powered, as has been made very public by fellow Renault customers Red Bull. However, unlike the Red Bull, the Caterham CT05 lacks downforce and is not the best looking car on the grid. Marussia’s 2014 car, the MR03 has looked quicker
