JLF1 Column – 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix


So there we go. The 2014 F1 season is over, Lewis Hamilton is a new double world champion and now we look ahead to next year’s cars breaking cover at the Jerez circuit in February. It has undoubtedly been one of the best seasons that I have ever witnessed, with a close and intense title

JLF1 Column – 2014 United States Grand Prix


17 races down and just two to go. The 2014 season has flown by; I can’t believe the finale in Abu Dhabi is just around the corner. It has been a great year on-track for F1, but not particularly so off it. Last weekend’s United States Grand Prix in Texas was another exciting and dramatic

It has been a difficult eight days for the Formula 1 world, following Jules Bianchi’s serious and unfortunate accident at the Japanese Grand Prix. My thoughts have been with the Frenchman every day since the crash and I am, like all of the F1 community, praying for a full and speedy recovery. Forza Jules. I

JLF1 Column – 2014 Singapore Grand Prix


The Singapore Grand Prix is one of my favourite races on the calendar. It is such a spectacular looking event and the cars always look stunning under the floodlights. It has one of the best backdrops on the current schedule – the night sky and the Singapore skyline – and is one that I am

The Belgian Grand Prix is always one of my favourite races on the calendar. The iconic and historic Spa-Francorchamps circuit is a fantastic venue and always produces thrilling on-track action. That didn’t change in 2014 with a dramatic weekend of racing as the sport returned from the summer break. Whilst it is a bit painful

JLF1 Column – 2014 German Grand Prix

Last weekend I attended the 2014 German Grand Prix at the Hockenheimring. It was my second race as a journalist, reporting for Richland F1, and my third overall, after attending this year’s British Grand Prix as a fan. I have personally always preferred the track layout in comparison to the Nurburgring, with the two circuits

After attending the Austrian Grand Prix at the Red Bull Ring for Richland F1 as part of the media, I was able to visit Silverstone last weekend as a fan – it was my first time watching a race from the grandstands. I was unable to travel to the tricky and iconic circuit on Friday

JLF1 Column – 2014 Canadian Grand Prix


And people said F1 would be boring in 2014. The Canadian Grand Prix was quite a race, wasn’t it? With 20 laps to go, I really didn’t know who was going to win. It was fantastic stuff. To be honest, the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve always produces an interesting race. It is a very unique, old-school

Well, that was quite a Formula 1 race weekend, wasn’t it? We were treated to a fantastic Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, which threw up plenty of talking points. Monaco is a race that I have always wanted to go to, and I think most F1 fans feel the same way. The way the drivers

JLF1 Column – 2014 Spanish Grand Prix


The Spanish Grand Prix was unsurprisingly dominated once again by the Mercedes drivers of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. The race didn’t have the drama of the third round of the 2014 season in Bahrain, but the race at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya produced an exciting and dramatic finish and threw up several good talking

JLF1 Column – 2014 Chinese Grand Prix


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

A “satisfied” Lewis Hamilton hoping for dry race

Lewis Hamilton said he was “satisfied” after taking a 34th career pole for tomorrow’s Chinese Grand Prix, his third pole of the 2014 season. Hamilton put together a strong lap in Q3 to take pole by six tenths, the pole meant he set a new British record for the most pole positions by a British

JLF1 Column – 2014 Bahrain Grand Prix


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

JLF1 Column – 2014 Malaysian Grand Prix

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

Why 2014 is a make or break year for F1

Rarely in the history of Formula 1 has one year had the ability to alter the course of history, however in 2014 that is precisely what could happen as the sport embarks on new rules and in many ways a new era. From the new V6 engines to the emergence of fresh blood at the

Top 10 UK F1 Drivers Of All Time

One of the greatest luxuries enjoyed by F1 racing fans is that their sport lasts throughout the majority of the year. With races stretching from March to November, it’s one of the longest calendars out there, which is wonderful for fans. However, there is an offseason, albeit a short one. With Sebastian Vettel having wrapped

JLF1 Column – 2013 Brazilian Grand Prix

I’m quite sad that the 2013 Formula 1 season has come to a close, as it has been fantastic in my view. Perhaps not for the on-track action, with Sebastian Vettel dominating the final nine races of the season, but for me personally, covering the sport, it has been a real step forward. The Interlagos

Where is Sebastian Vettel’s place in F1 history?

Red Bull Racing - Press Conference

In the last few months the world’s media have run out of superlatives to describe Sebastian Vettel. That reached a fever pitch when the German claimed his fourth world title at the Indian Grand Prix last month. Since then drivers and F1 figures past and present have been heaping praise so high on the 26-year-old,
