A personal space to vent, unpack and work out my life journey

Nice job if you can get it!

I for one think that they are underpaid!

Lewis Hamilton loses his head, maybe the title?

Lewis Hamilton after a shocking get away lost his head, lost the Fuji Grand Prix and quite possibly, with that, lost the world championship. The only saving grace is that his major title contender Massa, equally performed poorly (although did receive a hand up from the Stewards who penalised Sebastien Bourdais at the end of…

Luca sounding like a spoilt child!!

Below comments by Luca di Montezemelo on the Singapore race, which was more popular in Singapore than the opening of the Olympic games.     The Italian marque’s President Luca di Montezemolo slammed the event as a “circus” track at which only the appearance of the safety car lottery could spice up. “All this is humiliating…

Mclaren strategic for rest of season!!???!!!

Hamilton coming from 15th on the grid to 7th was great…

Spa showed that Lewis is a better driver than most when it comes to wet conditions. Controversially the stewards have applied a 25 second penalty causing Lewis to…

Massa wins and get 10 000 Euro fine

Valencia definitely provided a great race on Sunday with many teams still working out the best strategy to follow, we have to acknowledge the driving of Massa to effectively lead from the front and securing the win. Hamilton coming in second place was probably the best that Mclaren could have hoped for. Raikkonen suffered behind many…

Mclaren lock out front row for Hungarian GP

Qualification only moments ago ended with Mclaren locking out the front row in terms of the race for Sunday. Ferrari’s Massa coming in third and looked like he drover the living day lights out of the Ferrari. Certainly Kimi Raikkonen must be a worried man and the Ferrari team equally must be concerned about his…
