Predicting how F1′s final key battles will go

Three races to go and still some nice battles to go down

Three races to go and still some nice battles to go down

It’s easy to consider the rest of the 2020 Formula 1 season to be a ‘dead rubber’ now both the drivers’ and constructors’ titles are settled. But there are millions up for grabs in the constructors’ championship, a really intense battle for fourth in the driver’s contest, the abstract concept of ‘personal pride’ for some drivers and a pretty important 2021 driver market score to be settled.

You’ll read and hear a lot about what’s still up for grabs in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. The fun part is trying to guess how they’ll end! Läs mer

Romain Grosjean på väg mot Indycar?

Romain Grosjean letar körning till 2021 och kan hamna i Indycar

Romain Grosjean letar körning till 2021 och kan hamna i Indycar

Lite lugnt den här helgen med ledigt för Formel 1 inför ”tripple headern” som avslutar säsongen med start nästa helg i Bahrain. Vill man se lite racing kör Moto GP säsongsavslutning i Portimao, titeln säkrades dock förra helgen i Valencia av spanjoren Joan Mir.

På ryktesfronten verkar det alltmer sannolikt att Romain Grosjean kan hamna i Indycar nästa säsong. Grosjean fick som bekant inte förlängt kontrakt med Haas för 2021 och har sedan beskedet om detta letat andra alternativ. Länge såg det ut som att Formula E var en möjlighet med bl a en simulatortest för Mahindra som han gjorde men det verkar nu inte bli något. Blev också lite extra svårt för Grosjean att få till något när Formula E:s försäsongstester körs samma helg som Sakhirs GP (andra helgen i Bahrain) i Valencia. Läs mer

The real brilliance of Hamilton’s win was misunderstood

Lewis Hamilton did an outstanding race in Turkey but maybe we missunderstood why his perfomance was so good?

Lewis Hamilton did an outstanding race in Turkey but maybe we missunderstood why his perfomance was so good?

For the first time since 2015, Lewis Hamilton sealed the world championship with a victory. The various titles in between have been clinched in a variety of ways, just not with a win. In the Turkish Grand Prix he turned around a miserable weekend for Mercedes to earn his win, and his seventh title, the hard way.

F1′s worst nightmare in Turkey is great for fans

A very slippery first day in Turkey.

A very slippery first day in Turkey.

Resurface a Formula 1 circuit at your peril. A couple of years ago Silverstone got a serious dressing down for it. A few weeks ago, Algarve got lucky because there was no modern frame of reference, drivers were just a bit lost with not very much grip.

A glimmer of hope the Hamilton/Mercedes era will end?

Lewis Hamiltom made sure, toghether with Valtteri Bottas, that Mercedes could secure their seventh consecutive Constructurs Championship title

Lewis Hamilton made sure, toghether with Valtteri Bottas, that Mercedes could secure their seventh consecutive Constructurs Championship title

Mercedes has won seven titles in a row and 100 races since Formula 1’s current engine era started. We’ve all had enough time to come to terms with the team dominating but those numbers are still phenomenal. And there are probably plenty out there who hope they won’t get much bigger. Läs mer

Why F1′s return to Imola is such a big challenge

Imola will be an interesting track and a test for the team

Imola will be an interesting track and a test for the team

Formula 1 was meant to venture into an unknown this weekend with a first-ever two-day weekend, but the weather-induced loss of Friday practice at the Nurburgring kind of stole Imola’s thunder!

Still, this is the first proper two-day event, and it will pose an interesting test.  Läs mer

Albon’s time almost up as F1′s silly season gets fun

Who will have to leave its team after this season?

Who will have to leave its team after this season?

All season I’ve been closely following Alex Albon at Red Bull, and I’ve seen the flashes of potential and performance that Red Bull has often talked up. I’ve been an advocate of patience because there were plenty of signs to suggest that when it all came together Albon would be the driver Red Bull needs him to be. Läs mer
