Ten years of UnracedF1

According to my website host, and also twitter, UnracedF1 exists for ten years! Well UnracedF1 already existed in March for ten years. This might say how much I care about the number. Though, it is still worth to stand still by the this moment. There aren’t much websites, it seems, that stay online for that amount time without any form of sponsorship. In the end, UnracedF1 is just a hobby,

We don’t love anymore, like we used to do

We don’t love anymore, like we used to do 20 years ago. The love from 20 years ago I had for you became nothing more than a vague memory. A vague memory from the days V10s went mental on the circuits. The days Porsche attached two V6 engines with a Coca-Cola can. Yapping they build a brand-new V12 engine which Footwork would fall in love with eventually. The years that

What happened to John Newhouse ?

If you’re from my generation or older you are probably aware of former Formula One driver John Newhouse. In 1997, Jacques Villeneuve won the World Championship for Rothmans Williams Renault. He had a contract for 1998 as well. However, it seemed that Jacques took a sabbatical from Formula One. That’s why Williams hired John Newhouse for 1998. 25 years later, it is time to find out what ever happened to

Kolby’s forgotten BAR F3000 Pembrey test

Originally, the team had one car in the 555 colour scheme and the other in the Lucky strike colour scheme. Eventually had to merge both liveries, which resulted in the beautiful zipper livery. To prevent another controversy they

The Lucky Strike Tyrrell 025

It’s a forgotten sidenote in the rich history of Formula One. A little fact that I believe should be revealed again. There was a time in 1997 that BAT decided, after they finished their Project de Bono program, to purchase Tyrrell Racing instead of Minardi. In 1998 Tyrrell Racing would be still on the grid. They came with the Tyrrell 025. This same car would appear in the summer of

What will they do if another bomb drops?

Last year the Formula One came for the first time in Saudi Arabia. Oh boy little did we know what eventually would happen during that weekend. What I predicted with a cynical laughter happened, how was this even possible? The bombs felt next to the circuits. Because of a conflict between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. It still bothers me that the drivers, by force, appeared Sunday on the grid for

BAT was once interested in Minardi

A few weeks before i wrote about the Bono project. It was BAT (British American Tobacco)’s project to enter the Formula One. It was all about appearing on the grid in 1999 with their own team. As well, how to reach that goal. We all know that they eventually purchased Tyrrell Racing from Ken Tyrrell. Only using the Concorde agreements eventually to be allowed on the grid. Interestingly enough was
