Turkish Formula 1 GP 2021

The rain fell again and we all got very excited about the adventures we were about to have. I mean, it’s a wet race, they’re always chocked full of drama, thrills and spills right? RIGHT?  It had its moments but the biggest thing to take away from this race is should Mercedes have called Lewis…

Russian Formula 1 GP 2021

Straight off their surprise win at Monza, McLaren are at it again. This time snatching Pole and leading a huge chunk of the race, alas not the final lap. I think we can all say that we enjoy wet weather races again. We hope you enjoy. If you have any suggestions as what to cover…

Italian Formula 1 GP 2021

What is there to say about this race? Quite a lot really. McLaren finally win with a stunning 1-2 which was fully deserved, lots of corner cutting, mistakes with pit stops and Verstappen and Hamilton come together not once but twice. Thank goodness for the Halo and Hans device. We hope you enjoy. If you…

NOT THE Belgian GP 2021

What an absolute farce of a Sunday that was. Saturday proved exciting but two big incidents set the tone for race day. Vettel proved what a gentleman he is, Perez stuck it in the wall going to the grid and what were those laps in the beginning?  No honestly, what were they? We hope you…

Hungarian Formula 1 GP 2021

After the fall out of the British GP weekend we thought Hungary would bring a quiet, uneventful jaunt through the hills…. thank goodness that was not to be as we got an absolute belter of a race from start to finish. Bottas forgot his breaking distances, Hamilton lines up on the grid on his own,…

British Formula 1 GP 2021

What a scorcher of a weekend with Friday Qualifying, the first ever Sprint Race on a Saturday (They were racing, so yes, it’s a race) and a highly contentious opening lap of the British Grand Prix on the Sunday. And if you don’t agree with us, we’ll get Toto to write a sternly worded email…

The Styrian GP came, went and we move on to the next race. This time out we learnt that pit stops will be changing ever so slightly, the pit lane is not a place to spin, Russell was close to scoring a point & the French GP was more entertaining than this race. Let us…

The internet is clearly divided on this race. Some think it was an awesome cat and mouse chess match at 180mph, while others think it was a bit of a non-event. We’ll let you decide for yourselves where we stand on this. We hope you enjoy. If you have any suggestions as what to cover…

Monaco Formula 1 GP 2021

Monaco once again proves it has no business being on the Formula 1 calendar by producing one of the dullest races of the past 10 years, so Elton and Andy do their best to  make it entertaining. Did Leclerc bin his FIAT into the wall on purpose? Cheeky Red Bull asking to swap sides of…

Spanish Formula 1 GP 2021

Bahrain Formula 1 GP 2021

The first Formula 1 race of the 2021 season is upon us and it’s not in Australia, nope, we’re in Bahrain. Do Red Bull have what it takes to dethrone Mercedes? Will Fiat regain their name? Will Vettel have a clean race? And will that bitchy comment that Horner made mid race come back to…
