The Nurburgring, a Screaming Wife, and a Failing Saab.

The Nurburgring isn't so much a race track as it is an insane German roller coaster that you can fall off of at any moment. My wife, Kelty, sitting next to me, screaming for 11 minutes straight intensified this effect. Except, instead of a roller coaster scream she was screaming like she suddenly found herself on the… » 4/22/14 8:22pm Yesterday 8:22pm

The (Very) Short List of Potential American Drivers for Gene Haas in…

An American F1 team! Or the next best thing; a rich American with FIA permission to field an F1 team. USF1 taught us those are not the same thing, but if successful Haas Formula will need a pair of (hopefully American) drivers. Like NASA, the F1 skillset required to ride the rocket is extremely specific, leaving… » 4/13/14 5:15pm 4/13/14 5:15pm

Cooking Our Way Through The F1 Calendar: Bahrain Edition

In today's installment of Cooking Our Way Through The F1 Calendar, Josh and I make Machboos Rubyan, a deliciously fragrant authentic Bahraini rice and shrimp dish. We also get knackered on bourbon, which I'm fairly certain isn't authentic. Oh well, here's how to do it. » 4/11/14 4:40pm 4/11/14 4:40pm

The Bahrain Grand Prix Proved That When Team Orders Lose, Fans Win

There was some controversy at the Malaysian Grand Prix, with Felipe Massa being ordered to let teammate Valtteri Bottas pass. It wasn't good for fans, it wasn't good for racing, but it was good for the team. Which was a shame. Thankfully, at today's Bahrain Grand Prix, we saw the power of racing without team orders. » 4/06/14 2:07pm 4/06/14 2:07pm

F1 Driver Jean-Éric Vergne Was Hospitalized After Starving Himself

The powers that govern Formula One changed its minimum weight limit for drivers and cars this season, and that small change has already claimed its first victim.

Technically Formula 1 - Bahrain Gran Prix

Technical innovation is what makes Formula 1 so different from any other form of racing. The on track action is as much played out by the engineers and aerodynamicists as it is the drivers. We are here to admire, study, and discuss this beauty that exists on the ragged edge of what we think is possible, or at least… » 4/05/14 7:42pm 4/05/14 7:42pm
