Much like IndyCar, Formula One has also threatened to split multiple times, but for one crucial moment - ahead of it American counterpart - it did go separate ways for a few races. This is the story of the F1 series that never was. »
As the Sky Sports announcers said themselves, this season of Formula One has often been a game of who can finish third behind the Mercedes cars. Not so in Singapore this evening, where a chaotic race gave Ferrari their first double podium of the season and plenty of memorable moments. »
It’s been an eventful Singapore Grand Prix so far, but even with Lewis Hamilton’s retirement and a crazy crash between Felipe Massa and Nico Hulkenberg, no moments have been as bizarre as this: the random fan seen just walking around the track. »
Scoring the first Formula One pole position for Ferrari in more than three years, Sebastian Vettel will lead the field in Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix. Perhaps equally as newsworthy, it won’t be Lewis Hamilton out front again — at least, he won’t be when the race starts. »
When Sebastian Vettel’s tire exploded at the Belgian Grand Prix this weekend, there was much fuming from darker corners of the Internet. Why couldn’t Pirelli make a better tire?

You wouldn’t believe it at first look, but this is not a Peugeot
207 WRC car. This car was built from the chassis on up, from scratch, by a 22 year old rally driver named Alex Kelsey. It weighs just 1,000 KG (2,200 lbs) and makes 450 HP to all four wheels from a Renaultsport V6 out of a Formula 2 car. Only the… »
In a crime that sounds as if it was from a James Bond film instead of real life, F1 driver Jenson Button and wife Jessica Michibata were robbed in a vacation home in the south of France. Burglars pumped anesthetic gas through the home to knock the couple out before stealing over $465,000 worth of items.
It’s time for Formula One to take a mid-season break, with almost a month separating last weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix and their next race in Belgium. What’s Lewis Hamilton doing? Making sweet catches mid-air while doing sick jumps into the lake, that’s what.

Today was National Ice Cream Day, and there was no Formula One racing all day. When the racing stops, that’s the perfect time to get an ice cream—as driver Kimi Räikkönen did during a red flagged race at the 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix. »
In light of recent attempts to make F1 more exciting again, some have called for a return to the high stakes, womanizing days of yore, where F1 didn’t apologize for what it was and a simple off would certainly end your race.

Rumors and whispers of the Next Great American Formula One Team come and go, often crumbling like bits of Pirelli rubber in the wind. But while the Haas F1 team actually looks like it’s coming to fruition, there’s another murmur, this time dancing through the ears of Motorsport.com. And this one looks to be based on a… »
Juan Manuel Fangio, widely considered to be one of the greatest Formula One drivers of all time, died damn near 20 years ago at the ripe old age of 84.
