One thing that was made clear when Formula One banned teams from relaying certain kinds of information to their drivers was that comparative information about a teammate was not to be shared. “Lewis, Nico is safe on fuel—safe on fuel—but a little bit more critical on brakes,” seems like it might bend this rule, no?
Close passes are one thing. Threading your wheel in between the two wheels of another Formula One race car next to you resides on a whole different plane of ridiculousness. Here’s the most beastly overtake of this year’s Canadian Grand Prix, courtesy of Felipe Massa as he goes around Marcus Ericsson.
Groundhog, you are no Ballast Possum. For that, we are thankful, and you may live—for now, at least, provided you don’t try this again on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. Here’s a little critter who tried to play in traffic at the Formula One Canadian Grand Prix.
So, it begins: Max Verstappen and Jenson Button both received grid penalties for using a fifth power unit for the Canadian Grand Prix. With some teams experiencing reliability on par with a Renault Fuego at a LeMons race, this won’t be the last time we see penalties for using a season’s four-engine allotment too soon.
The past few Formula One races have been a bit boring. One of the Mercedes drivers, either Lewis Hamilton or Nico Rosberg, would end up on pole, and one would end up winning. It was neat at first, but then it grew a bit stale. The Canadian Grand Prix looked like much of the same, until it all went to hell.
The Canadian Grand Prix turned into a beautiful spectacle of competition, right up until the very end. An especially epic track battle was occurring just behind the race leader, between Felipe Massa, Sebastian Vettel, and Checo Perez, and it all ended in this absolutely massive crash.
I love Circuit Gilles Villeneuve. What an awesome place. For spectators, but also especially for photographers. It's like a playground for us to have fun with. Modern tracks are desolate with their enormous runoffs and empty grandstands. You're miles away from the cars and you need long glass with teleconverters to…
Off and on rain made for an interesting session, as the track dried and got wet again a few times throughout qualifying. There is a chance of rain tomorrow, so it should make things interesting.
"You fucking idiot! What the fuck do you think you're doing? Do you like stealing other people's drinks, or what?" Here I am, standing on the second floor of a very loud party, getting flecks of spit on my face, and generally enjoying the unbelievably rich world of Formula One.
In conjunction with student protests and planned demonstrations around next weekend's Montreal Grand Prix, the hacker group Anonymous threatens to shut down Formula One's website and publish the credit card information of people buying tickets and merchandise online.
Named after one of Lewis Hamilton’s role models, this is one of the best circuits on the calendar.
After six dry races, Formula One was more than ready for a wet Grand Prix in Montréal. What we got was no ordinary wet race. It was the mother of all wet races, a deep sea battle to see if Sebastian Vettel is man or, indeed, machine. Warning: spoilers.
Following in the footstops of Daddy Hamilton, Lewis had an unfortunate accident at the Canadian Grand Prix this weekend. Apparently missing the red light as he exited pit row, Hamilton rear-ended Kim Raikkonen just 17 laps into the race. With two of the sport's best drivers out, BMW's Robert Kubica won his first…
