Will they all live happily ever after?

Lewis Hamilton – racing driver and global superstar (but in which order?) Once upon a time there were two footballers. Lets call them Paul and David. They were about the same age and both were very good at football. In fact, they were so good that a really big football club signed them up. Although…

Singapore GP – The Race

A small clue as to my thoughts on the race! In a season full of stupendously exciting races, it was inevitable that there would be one absolute crashing bore snoozefest of a race. And so it came to pass at Singapore. If truth be told, the Monaco Grand Prix was also pretty dull this year…

The Singapore GP – Qualifying

The stunning Marina Bay Street Circuit Just seven more races to go and the endgame draws ever nearer. Time for Round 14. Singapore. Welcome to Bonkerdom. Think Monaco but with even more skyscrapers…at night-time…in the tropics. A visually stunning spectacle but an absolute race of attrition for the drivers – insanely hot even at night…

Italian GP – The Race

The European leg of the F1 season is done and dusted. Long-haul here we come!  Ok this blog should really have ‘LATE’ scrawled across it in annoyed teacher handwriting. For it is…ahem…very late. A whole week late to be precise and for that I profusely apologise. If I do have to point the Big Finger…

Italian GP – Qualifying

The great Juan Manuel Fangio winning at Monza in 1955 Monza. Home of the Tifosi. A Mecca for all fans who have racing in their blood. Along with Spa, it is the one Grand Prix that I haven’t yet been to that I really, really want to go to. Next year, the Italian Grand Prix…

Thinking of buying a car?

This blog is something of a departure for me. It is my first non-F1 article so slightly out of my comfort zone but at least its still about cars! Nonetheless, I shall do my best to sneak in a quick mention of Ferrari before the end…after all there are folk out there who buy Ferraris…

Belgian GP – The Race

The Belgian Grand Prix – A timeless classic Ever wondered why I called my blog after Eau Rouge? Back in the depths of winter when I decided (in a moment of insanity but I’m loving it really!) to start blogging about Formula 1 ahead of the 2012 season, I drove the husband temporarily insane by…

Belgian GP – Qualifying

This way please for Eau Rouge…. Our itinerary for the last three Saturdays had read a bit like a Tour de France schedule: (1) Dordogne to Pyrenees (2) Pyrenees to Charente and (3) Charente to Alencon. Wiggo may be supremely brilliant on two wheels but has he traversed the length of France twice over with…
