2018 Spanish GP: Hamilton Wins the Procession

2018 Spanish GP: Hamilton Wins the Procession

The 2018 Spanish Grand Prix was nothing to write home about if you’re a fan of racing. Nothing of real interest took place after the first lap, where Romain Grosjean spun and then lit up his rear wheels, creating a huge cloud of smoke and causing two drivers to crash into him. The safety car […]

Vettel Back on Top at 2019 Singapore GP

Charles Leclerc fans who watched the 2019 Singapore GP will tell you that Ferrari engineered the results so that Sebastian Vettel finished first, but don’t let them fool you: the Formula 1 race was a Vettel masterclass that he thoroughly deserved to win. Leclerc did brilliantly once more to qualify on pole position for the […]

Charles Leclerc Takes Emotional Maiden Win at 2019 Belgian GP

After being denied almost certain victory twice already in his first year at Ferrari, Charles Leclerc has finally taken his maiden Grand Prix win at the 2019 Belgian GP, though he was unable to relish in it as much as he might have hoped before the weekend. The mood was indeed somber on Sunday; the […]

Hamilton Wins Exciting 2019 British GP

Hamilton Wins Exciting 2019 British GP

Lewis Hamilton is widely regarded as one of the best qualifiers in Formula One history and has never finished lower than second at the British Grand Prix since the start of the sport’s hybrid V6 engine era, so when teammate Valtteri Bottas beat the Brit to pole position on his own turf by just 0.006 […]

Verstappen and Honda Triumph at 2019 Austrian GP

Today at the 2019 Austrian GP, Honda celebrated its first win in Formula One’s hybrid engine era. Having taken place at Red Bull Racing’s home race in Spielberg, Austria, and with droves of orange-clad fans having come down from the Netherlands to support Max Verstappen, the win couldn’t have come at a better time. If […]

Hamilton Wins the 2019 French GP

Even as a long-time Formula One fan, I couldn’t get through watching the 2019 French GP without doing something else at the same time. As someone on reddit aptly put it, the race was like a podcast with cars running in the background. As usual, Lewis Hamilton did brilliantly to put it on pole with […]

2019 Canadian GP: Vettel Victory Stolen by Stewards

2019 Canadian GP: Vettel Victory Stolen by Stewards

The 2019 Canadian GP was the most exciting race so far in the Formula One season, but perhaps not for the right reasons. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who had managed to stick in on pole with a sublime performance on Saturday, defended the lead from Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton almost the entire race. At first it seemed […]

2019 Monaco GP: Hamilton Holds Off Verstappen

2019 Monaco GP: Hamilton Holds Off Verstappen

As races around the narrow streets of Monte Carlo go, the 2019 Monaco GP was a decent one. Lewis Hamilton, suffering from major tire degradation on a set of very used mediums, was barely able to fend off Max Verstappen, who benefited from tires better suited for their long, final stint. There wasn’t a lot […]

2019 Spanish GP: Hamilton Regains Championship Lead

2019 Spanish GP: Hamilton Regains Championship Lead

In recent years, the Spanish Grand Prix has lost some of its luster. The track itself is great fun for hot lapping — I’ve raced on a laser-scanned version in racing simulations many times and it is one of my favorites on the Formula One calendar — but not so great when it comes to […]

2019 Bahrain GP: Charles Leclerc Denied Victory

Charles Leclerc didn’t put a foot wrong all weekend at the 2019 Bahrain GP, but still couldn’t grasp victory after a mechanical issue caused him to lose engine power with less than 10 laps to go. The day before, having seemingly fixed its issues and turned up the engine, Ferrari had locked out the front […]

2019 Australian GP: Bottas Dominates Season Opener

2019 Australian GP: Bottas Dominates Season Opener

Compared to the second half of 2018, Valtteri Bottas was like a changed man at the 2019 Australian GP. He was fast, aggressive, and decisive, much like he had been in his junior formula days, and much unlike the way he had driven last year, when he seemed almost cowed by the sheer driving force […]
