Driver Profile - Jolyon Palmer

Evening everyone. It's time to kick off 2023 with a fresh Driver Profile, and what better way than to profile one of the most recent GP Rejects. Jolyon Palmer could not achieve unrejectification like his father did, but 37 often tumultuous races with two lucky points finishes for Renault obscured a ...

Driver Profile - Roger Loyer

Evening everyone It's high time we profiled another of those elite band of men who were GP Rejects in the 1950s. A Formula 1 career lasting just 19 laps in a poorly Gordini, Roger Loyer might seem like the sort of name you'd read once in an Formula 1 results book and never come across again. What al...

The Gravel Trap vs The Race

Evening everyone. You may or may not have seen an article from those Autosport botherers The Race , where Edd Straw bizarrely takes aim at the 2010 new teams and our 1989 pre-qualifying heroes, all while decrying those calling for more teams in Formula 1. We couldn't possibly let this rest without s...

Infinite Improbability Drive of the Race - Abby Dabby 2022

1. Sebastian Vettel. Fought all afternoon, a nice farewell for the lad.

2. Amaury Cordeel. The bloke was an F2 meme for most of this season, but he looked like a proper driver this weekend, excellent effort.

2. The mariachi F1 theme. A nice touch for the weekend.

Nothing in the race was IIDOTR worthy.

Utterly dismal choice to switch both cars onto hards, looking at how Ricciardo went on the softs surely they should have left Russell out on the mediums and bolted on softs for the last 20 laps.
