Whatever next?

    I read with absolute awe a news story today about half a million TV spectators signing a petition to have HBO create a new ending for Game of Thrones, a show which I have to say I have never watched. It seems, from what I have picked up that things end badly with lots of characters being slaughtered - in one wa... [Continue reading]

    Formula 1 as a marketing tool

    When it comes to marketing Formula 1 is a very powerful tool - and it seems like you don't have to win races to be able to sell your products. Obviously, success must have some kind of impact but the glitter of F1 seems to be sufficient when it comes to selling road cars. McLaren recently reported... [Continue reading]

    The Dutch GP

    And by the way, the Dutch Grand Prix will be confirmed on May 14 and will take place at Zandvoort on May 10 2020 - so long as there is some work done to upgrade the paddock area.

    Off to Baku...

    Apologies for radio silence in recent days, but the Easter holiday is something that F1 folk rarely get and so it was important to be at home and involved in non-racing activities with small happy people.

    Honda ups the game

    Honda will introduce its first upgraded engine of the 2019 Formula 1 season at this weekend’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage.

    A second race in China, and other stories

    There is a lot of crap peddled on websites that don't have a clue about F1 - even if their names suggest they do - and about the sport. The good news is that it is becoming easier to work out who to trust, thanks to the Formula One group agreeing to allow journalists with permanent credential... [Continue reading]
