Anyway, now the results have been adjusted for Hamilton and Alonso’s penalties, check out the scores on the Fantasy Racers website.  As per the last race in Australia, we are going to focus on Points Per Million, which is best explained at the end of this post. Continue reading

Sauber’s Sizzling Speed Stuns Smiling Spectators!

So that was the first Grand Prix of the year.  Not the worst or the best, but not bad either.  It was interesting to see who was fast and who was slow, whether the new technologies would help the racing out, but most important to me was how the new Pirelli tyres would degrade and what strategies the teams would employ with them.

Turning The Amp Up To 2011!

Hey guys! Are you excited? I sure am!  I cannot wait for the action to begin tomorrow and like many others I have no idea what’s going to happen…

  • Will we ever remember the colours for each compound (Here’s a helpful song if you cant ;) )?
  • Will a racy or conservative driver be best over a Grand Prix distance? Continue reading

Too Much Racing!

Get Well Soon Robert!

I was shocked to wake up this morning to hear that Robert Kubica had a terrible accident in a national rally in Italy.  I have never heard of the Ronde di Andora Rally and I had no idea Robert was taking part in a rally.  Even more surprising is the fact that he was in a Skoda and not a Renault.

Anyway, he had a freak accident where after spinning off the road and hitting a wall, the car slid into an armco barrier, which seems to have impaled the car and caused horrific injuries to Robert’s right foot, hip and more crucially, severed his hand.  His co-driver walked away unscathed.

As part of the Viva F1 Bloggers Swap Shop series, I have posted on Pat’s Too Much Racing blog about the proliferation of racing series.  Here is a post from Leigh of the F1 and Motorsports Archive about a little bit of history repeating.  Enjoy!

There were two opportunities.  Sixty minutes and twelve laps; first on a Friday afternoon, followed by the same twenty-four hours later. Continue reading
