An F1 Repeat in Melbourne

The 2018 Formula 1 season gets underway at its traditional starting point of Melbourne, Australia this Sunday.  This season will consist of 21 races concluding on December 1st in Abu Dhabi.  The 2019 calendar almost mirrors that of 2018 with no new circuits only date/order changes. Fundamentally there is little change to the cars that raced in 2018.  There’s wider higher and simpler front wings, cars can carry a bit more petrol and weigh a bit more too.  Ultimately we cannot expect any serious changes to the pecking order that has been unchanged since 2017. Winter testing took place in…

Three for Formula E

The 2019 Formula 1 season may be just over a week away but Formula E’s 2019 season is already four races in and this weekend there’s another race from Hong Kong.

It’s Simple: Back the F1 Teams With New Engines in Pre-Season Testing

There are two sets of pre-season F1 testing in Barcelona again this year. The first starts next Monday, 18 February and concludes on Friday. The second and final tests are scheduled to take place between Tuesday, 26 February and Friday, 1 March. That’s a fortnight before the season opening race in Australia. Coral and bedfellows Ladbrokes are currently betting on which car or team sets the fastest time during the first four days and they make Mercedes their 19/20 favourites. It's a stupidly short price. A year ago, over the full eight days of testing, Mercedes were the seventh fastest…
