Notebook from The Four Seasons

    The Canadian Grand Prix weekend is one of the favourite Formula 1 races. The city is great. The circuit is great – and with much better facilities than was previously the case. This year, the weather was great. The food was great. The only problem is that with the media being as it is these... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from the road

    Time flies when you are having fun… Apologies for the late arrival of the green notebook but post-Monaco is always a busy time. Not least because one has to drive the 1200km home after the race weekend. And after two long nights producing magazines, Monday was a long haul, although it is never ... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from Catalonia

    We’re all human. Well, most of us, anyway. And, as such, we make mistakes. Thus I have to admit that the Spanish Grand Prix did not feature the usual green notebook because this was left at home after repairs needed to be made after it suffered a broken spine in Baku. Moleskin take note. ... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from DXB

    It’s God-knows-what-o’clock here in the lounge in Dubai and my shoes are very shiny. I have been waiting for hours for the plane to Paris and I finally gave in and let the ever-cheerful shoe cleaners have their way. They were excited not to be rejected. Going from Baku to Paris by way of D... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from an A380

    The 1000th Grand Prix weekend might have been a bit more impactful were it not for the fact that it took place in China. The People's Republic is not everyone's cup of tea and every year, after the race, there is a stampede of F1 people for Pudong International Airport. This is not really diff... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from a village in Normandy

    Le Café du Commerce is a pleasant spot to have a relaxed lunch after a busy weekend in Grand Prix racing. Working my way through an escalope de veau à la normande, with double-fried frites, I was able to read through the green notebook and try to extract the news of the ... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from Melbourne

    A weekend break to Australia is not the sort of thing that people generally do, but F1 life is like that and until there is a more sensible calendar, this is what we will have to do. Having travelled so far to get there, some F1 folk stay around after the Grand Prix and go up to Bahrain on the way home, after a... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from home

    It is always a bit of a race to get things done after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, not because it has to be that way, but because everyone who is vaguely sensible wants to go home, after a long season on the road. There are those who wish to stay to see the new team-driver combinations for the first time... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from Guarulhos

    The Aeropuerto Internacional de São Paulo is to be found (if you don't get lost on the way) in the Guarulhos municipality, in the north west of the city. To get there from the south of this vast urban sprawl, where Interlagos is located, one follows a road they call the Marginal Pinheiros, alongside ... [Continue reading]

    Notebook from Miami… and other places

    Apologies for the rather delayed green notebook. Life has been very busy since the Mexican Grand Prix, churning out words which pay money, which must be the priority as sadly this blog does not. The Mexican GP seemed to come and go very quickly and while it was great to see Lewis Hamilton win his... [Continue reading]
