The Gravel Trap on the Colton Herta saga

Evening everyone The shambolic Colton Herta to AlphaTauri saga reached a predictable end earlier this month when the FIA announced the American did not qualify for a superlicence exemption. It means we can present a topical edition of The Gravel Trap this month, as Klon takes a critical look at the ...

Missing the Points - The Michael Schumacher DSQ

Evening everyone We're now only a month away from the 25th anniversary of Jerez 1997, where Michael Schumacher hit the wrong part of Jacques' Villeneuve's Williams, ingloriously beached himself in the gravel and two weeks later was disqualified from the final standings by an incandescent FIA. Yet in...

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Italy 2022

1. Nyck De Vries. Setting an absolute gold standard for last-minute F1 debuts, an excellent weekend for the lad. Has also likely killed off Latifi's career in one shot.

2. Zhou Guanyu. Finally snapped Alfa's pointless streak, and did so while comprehensively demolishing Bottas.

Reject of the Race - Italy 2022

1. Aston Martin. A pathetic double retirement and the only team not to get either car home.

2. Nicholas Latifi. De Vries has nailed the coffin shut on his F1 career.

Honourable mention to Daniel Ricciardo's car for breaking down at the worst possible place on the track.

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Holland 2022

1. Lance Stroll. Q3 on merit and another point safely banked, a good weekend all round.

2. AlphaTauri, because their boneheaded antics with Tsunoda were so silly they transcended ROTR and became eligible for IIDOTR. :deletraz:

Driver Profile: Corrado Fabi

Evening everyone A few Formula 1 fans have heard of Teo Fabi, who was very much the 1980s version of Jarno Trulli, achieving poles and high grid placings in subpar machinery. Fewer still have heard of Teo's younger brother, who was once touted as a future Formula 1 star, but whose career foundered i...

Re: Reject of the Race - Belgium 2022

Wrong series I know, but NASCAR has powered into ROTR contention for letting the field race on at Daytona for a whole lap while it was raining. Suffice to say almost every car now has serious damage, and we're now in a situation where the 2nd placed driver in points is very likely not going to be pe...

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Belgium 2022

1. Alex Albon. Q3 on merit, and a legit points contender all day. At one stage looked capable of P6 or P7, an excellent day for the lad.

2. Esteban Ocon. Twice managed to execute a three wide overtake to perfection.

Feels like only yesterday since we saw this spotty teenager driving the wheels off a Toro Rosso. It's seemed inevitable for the last year or so, but even so it's still a shock.
