After the frantic Bahrain Grand Prix, the fourth round of the 2014 season in China was a calmer display, with Lewis Hamilton dominating to win his third consecutive race. There were some quiet spots during the race, but I thought there were also some exciting and (mostly) clean battles as well as some very impressive

The 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix was undoubtedly one of the best Formula 1 races I have seen in quite some time, and I’m definitely not the only one who thinks that. It was one of those races where there is always something going on. We had battles up and down the field and it really

F1: Singapore vs Sepang

On Sunday, Lewis Hamilton stood on the top step of the podium in Malaysia (admittedly a much happier podium compared to last year’s) for the first time and Mercedes clinched their first 1-2 finish, which, I’m sure, is just one of many to come. And I was there to witness it! This weekend’s race was

The 2014 Malaysian Grand Prix was a good race, wasn’t it? Well, I thought so anyway – there was lots of drama and action, a bit of rain to spice things up in qualifying (although less of a delay would have been nice) and a race full of good battles and strong drives. It wasn’t

Malaysian GP: A complete guide to the Sepang Circuit

Located in Selangor in the south of Malaysia, the Sepang Circuit was the first in a new breed of circuit designed by F1 architect Hermann Tilke. Yet unlike most other of his creations Sepang, which is now 15-years-old, has got a largely positive review from fans and drivers alike. The track has not changed since

Daniel Ricciardo: The next Wonder from Down Under?

Regardless of events in the stewards room late on that Sunday night in Melbourne – one of the stars of the opening race weekend Down Under was their very own Daniel Ricciardo. A young man on whom the spotlight has shone very brightly at now for quite some time since it was announced he would

Caterham and Marussia: Crunch Time

2014 marks Caterham and Marussia’s fifth season in Formula One, that’s five seasons without scoring a point or a top-ten finish. Unlike the demise of HRT at the end of 2012 both teams have secure funding through sponsors and even their drivers (touchy subject!). So why then, even with secure funding and drivers who have

Melbourne is the undisputed home of sport in Australia, however Formula One racing is considered an acquired taste. Whilst 300,000 people came through the gates over four days at Albert Park this past weekend, without an Australian driver featuring heavily I’m not sure the race results would have featured on the front pages, let alone

Australian Grand Prix 2014: A rollercoaster weekend

Formula One enthusiasts’ wait was over as the first Grand Prix of 2014 zoomed in with high expectations, new rules, new engine(power unit!), new faces and of course new noses. Even though the test in Bahrain gave us some idea of which team has the better car and which drivers can handle the v6, we

JLF1 Column – 2014 Australian Grand Prix

The F1 2014 season has now kicked off and it did so in style with a dominant win for Nico Rosberg at last weekend’s Australian Grand Prix. I don’t remember ever being so excited for F1’s return and I can’t wait for the year ahead – which will hopefully be a big one for me.
