Formula 1 - Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

Nov 23rd, 2016 at 21:32 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 1 comments 215 views

Abu Dhabi Grand Prix So the Brazilian GP was eventually a great race, but I cannot help but get frustrated with the sport when drivers have to spend 20 laps behind a safety car then they almost immediately jump to intermediate tyres. I absolutely get the need for safety as these cars are not effectively designed for slow speed wet racing, but these guys are supposed to be the …

Brazilian GP - Formula 1 - Title Decider - Stats / Tips and Hints

Nov 10th, 2016 at 20:58 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 0 comments 102 views

Brazilian Grand Prix We head to Brazil, and potentially with his 19 point lead it looks like Nico will get his title. Brazil has seen a number of title wins the past with one of my fondest was Lewis’ first in 2008 when he over took Timo Glock on the penultimate corner after a weather affected race. He pipped home favourite Filipe Massa to the title. Talking of Massa …

Mexican Grand Prix Hi everyone, how you all doing? Good? Yep, me too! So the US didn’t disappoint, we ended up with with correct winner from the blog but the Rosberg pole didn’t land as for the Ricciardo bet, until the virtual safety car, which effectively gave Nico a free pit stop and that bet was dead in the water which was a shame. So we shoot straight from Texas …

Grand Prix Well for those Lewis fans amongst us it's not looking good now is (ME)? For those who had a bet on Nico when he was 4/1 after LH took the championship lead a few weeks ago it's looking very rosey (ME). It the title race over? No, of course not, if Lewis wins every race and Nico comes 2nd it means he gets a 28 point swing …

Japanese Grand Prix F1 Preview - Title Decided... Nearly

Oct 3rd, 2016 at 22:30 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 0 comments 193 views

Grand Prix So with the dust barely settled on the Malaysian GP we race over to Japan and arrive at Suzuka. Lewis Hamilton arguably one of the unluckiest drivers on the track this season, however I do recall his fair share of luck when beating Nico to his 2nd title a couple of seasons back. I dont think the title is over, Nico for me can crack under pressure and Lewis …

Malaysian Grand Prix - Formula 1

Malaysian Grand Prix So we make the short hop from Singapore to Malaysia, hello by the way! You all good? Ready for another hot race? Yes? I cant hear you… Thats better! Right lets see what is what at the Sepang Circuit. Before we do though - a small confession, I didn't see the Singapore race, but from what I read it was interesting behind Nico but he cruised home …

Sep 8th, 2016 at 21:05 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 0 comments 359 views

Singapore Grand Prix - F1 - Night Race Welcome to one and all, we head to Singapore and for those that read the blog frequently I often moan about street circuits, and whilst this is the case here in Singapore the track is wide enough and the fact it is under lights, and the drivers generally turn in to raging nutters behind the wheel when the sun goes …

Belgian Grand Prix - Formula 1 - Spa This break feels like it has gone on forever doesn’t? I cannot wait for the Belgian GP, which is coincidentally my absolute favourite track of the year. It has one of the best pieces of track you are ever likely to see in Eau Rouge. To see these car’s going full tilt through that part of the track. If you like what …

German Grand Prix - Formula 1

Jul 27th, 2016 at 16:22 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 0 comments 192 views

German Grand Prix So as predicted by many, the race was to be effectively won by the first corner, but for those that too the early value on Lewis Hamilton were rewarded as he controlled the race from the front. Before we move onto the German GP I have one last task…. Star of the Week : Kimi Raikonnen : Planned things beautifully through the race, made the …

Hungarian Grand Prix - F1 - Preview / Stats / Form

Jul 15th, 2016 at 15:40 Ralfie1982 on Motor Racing 0 comments 215 views

Hungarian GP Grand Prix So the British GP didnt let us down …. did it?! I thought Lewis was imperious at the front and had the race won after about 9 corners. To put nearly 4 seconds between him and 2nd that quickly then turn the car down and manage tyres was mighty impressive. Was he my Star Driver though…..Nope! Star Driver : Max Verstappen : …
