The Running Commentary

Mclaren Win

I was delighted to see Lewis race the Mclaren team to their first victory this season. One only hopes that this will be the start of more success this season. In terms of on incident filled weekend, I am not sure that we could have handled anymore than we got. It would be remiss of…

Mad Max Mosley….

Maybe it his age, or perhaps his alternate escapades, but whatever it is he needs to stop messing around. To come out on Friday after declaring along with FOTA that everything is sorted out and now say that you want people to withdraw statements and maybe you actually want to stand for president again? Loopy man…

Formula One wins out…

I was elated to read that a solution had been found and that, according to Luca di Montezemolo’s, FOTA’s proposals had been accepted. I think that the following statement may also have had something to do with the eventual decision:  “several broadcasters currently contracted with F1 television coverage had strongly hinted that they were looking into…

Max Mosley is Mad!!!

The FIA and FOM have together spent decades building the FIA Formula One World Championship into the most watched motor sport competition in history. In light of the success of the FIA’s Championship, FOTA – made up of participants who come and go as it suits them – has set itself two clear objectives: to…

What a race!!!

Sunday saw a really thrilling formula one race, with the Red Bull team of Vettel and Webber richly deserving their one two finish. Brawn too had a great race given their very limited testing in the wet. Mclaren finishing fifth and sixth was good for the team from Woking, although given the expectation that Lewis…

Sepang in the rain and twilight not a good choice

I feel more than a little cheated that we did not get a full race this Sunday. My understanding is that the late start was due to the requirement to get a larger television audience in Europe. Well that back fired big time….. All of the locals kept saying you are going to get rain,…

Lewis and Mclaren in the dock once again

Let me say that I have been a loyal Mclaren fan for over 20 years now. I remember watching when they were at the high points and equally when they were at the low points. I feel more than a little disappointed right now….. I have purposely not commented on the lying incident from Australia, in the slim…

The “Brawn Ultimatum”

What a debut for this team!  As I said to one of my colleagues, this is proves that age is only a number in terms of formula one. Two “old” (used very lightly here) campaigners in the form of Button and Barrichello richly deserve this success. Certainly a bit of a fairy tale event.  Ross…

New points system holding to 2010

I was greatly relieved to read that the new points system “Winner takes all” has been put on hold to 2010. My view is that I like the concept, but I think that you need to get every-one’s buy in on the process.  The best way to do this would be for the system to…

Only 43 Days to go………

Well we have just 43 days until we see the start of the 2009 F1 season. Mclaren appear in terms of pre-season work to have it together, but we will need to wait and see their form on the Melbourne track. I hope that 2009 sees Lewis Hamilton silence many of his critics. Hopefully he will…
