Austria’s next top model

Austrian twentysomething Paul Bischof is a bit like you and me. He’s a car geek. And he likes Formula 1. But Paul is a bit different, too, and takes his interest in cars to a totally new level. Way beyond the scope most of us can even think of. He makes 1:10 scale models of […]

Red Bull Racing’s presentation to the International Court of Appeal has failed and Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix for his car exceeding the maximum fuel flow rate will stand. The FIA has released a brief statement, which can be read below, and says full details will be published later this week. At this […]

Horner praises Ricciardo’s “brilliant” start

It could be argued that the start to Daniel Ricciardo’s Red Bull career should read second, fourth, fourth. That would have netted him a total of 42 championship points and placed him third in the title race behind the Mercedes pairing of Rosberg and Hamilton. As it stands it’s only Daniel’s well earned fourth placed […]

2014 Bahrain GP: Qualifying report

In a bit of a rush this morning so here’s your concise quali report. Nico is on pole, he was faster than Lewis. Oh yeah, it was dry for a change, too. And hot presumably. The race is in Bahrain after all. Daniel out qualified Sebastian, who didn’t even make it into Q3. That’s awesome […]

Red Bull threatens to throw French toys from cot

We’re just two races into the 2014 F1 season and already it’s clear that the Renault V6 power unit is the third of the three engine options available.

Would Red Bull really drop the Ricciardo appeal?

In the build up to the Malaysian Grand Prix Sebastian Vettel was asked to describe the sound of the new V6 power units. His reply: “It’s shit”. This comment could land him in hot water with the FIA via a disrepute charge. What’s that got to do with Daniel Ricciardo and the appeal—due to be […]

2014 Malaysian GP: Post-race press conference

Here’s the full post-race press conference transcript from the Malaysian Grand Prix. It’s worth reading some of the exchanges between Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel.

In doing so the 2008 world champion has moved alongside Jim Clark and Alain Prost on 33 career pole positions. Qualifying was delayed for close to an hour due to heavy rain and difficult conditions, […]

Porsche F1 rumours fire up again?

In its own words the @GTPorsche twitter account represents the “biggest independent print and digital Porsche magazine”. Yet, often what this account says has a track record of becoming official from Porsche shortly thereafter. Our observations lead us to believe they either have impeccable outside sources or the ear of some influential people inside the […]

Red Bull explains defence for Australian GP appeal

Christian Horner has revealed to Autosport the approach Red Bull Racing will take in its appeal to have Daniel Ricciardo’s disqualification from the Australian Grand Prix overturned. Ricciardo crossed the finish line in second place and he and the team have been stripped of the 18 world championship points earned on the day. The team […]

Dietrich Mateschitz expresses limits with F1

Owner of the Red Bull Racing and Toro Rosso F1 teams, Dietrich Mateschitz, says he has a clear limit as to what he can accept in the world of Formula 1. While headlines screaming Red Bull could quit F1 are a little sensationalist for now, the sport would be wise to pay attention when Mateschitz […]
