Did you know that in the Persuaders, a brilliant series from the early 1970s, Brett Sinclair is also a Grand Prix driver? There is even the Sinclair Special featured in the episode “Someone Waiting” an episode about bribing people out of the race at Silverstone, which Brett Sinclair eventually would win. So which car was used for the episode because it is not the March 702 as you would assume.
I smoke cigars, you smoke cigars, we smoke cigars. There is a reason of course you are reading this post. For a fact, not many humans on this planet will ever smoke a cigar. I recently discovered that only 5% of the 7 billion people on earth would ever smoke one. Only a small group of people will experience the enjoyment of cigars. You have to be able to imagine
Liberty Media is since a couple of years the new owner of the Formula One. If you ask me, it was a deal to be doomed, though that is another story. Bernie sold the Formula One to them. All Liberty want’s is to make more money. As i wrote a will back. How so you make more money in this case? By adding more races to the calendar. It seems
Kiele Kiele Saoedi-Arabië de oudere generatie kent het nummer van Farce Majeure’s waarschijnlijk nog wel. Alleen dan over Koeweit. Het carnavalslied dat schijnbaar alles nog meer op scherp wist te stellen tussen onze relatie met Israël en met de Arabieren. Anno 2020 zijn de Israëliërs de grootste vrienden van de Arabieren. En Liberty Media is van mening dat we in Saoedi-Arabië moet gaan racen. Een land waar je toch je
Last year in February i published an article about the AFRIX Pan-African race series that was to be launched soon. In 2015 - 2016 AFRIX acquired the fleet of Ferrari-powered A1GP cars a few years ago. The plan was to race in the season 2020 – 2021. The AFRIX series was announced four years ago in the media. Sadly, up to today the cars are still waiting to active their
Ferrari did 1000 races since 1950, this is exclusive the entries they made but did not race. And exclusive the races that did not count for the championship. The first 20 years of Formula 1 there were plenty of them. Because of these stats, and a discussion I had on twitter about teams that merged and are today on the grid, here are some stats you don’t need to know!
Last weekend the ninth edition of the Historic Grand Prix at Zandvoort was held. However, this year was different from others years. There were les race series than previous years and there was no historic stage setting. Was this an issue for this year’s event? If you ask me this, I will say no it was not. It was even more or less a relief to be honest. Why was
De grote prijs van Pyongyang of de grote prijs van Noord-Korea of gewoon lekker The North-Korean Grand Prix. Zouden we ooit naar Pyongyang afreizen om daar een Formule 1 race te gaan rijden door de straten van Pyongyang? Het is een vraagstelling die niemand zich stelt, maar mij toch intrigeert. Het begon allemaal met de vraag of er ooit autosport is bedreven in Noord-Korea. Al snel dwaalde ik af bij
2005 was the last year that privateers, the small teams, appeared on the grid. Minardi was the last team of an era were many tried their luck in the Formula One. Due the coming ban on turbo engines in 1989 and the restrictions, it was financially attractive for teams to try their luck. Most of them failed to even complete two season, some only did a few races before they
This weekend the Australian Grand Prix would have been the season opening for Formula One, however due to the corona virus there won’t a Grand prix at all. The first Grand Prix? Probably the Dutch Grand Prix. The hectic of Liberty Media and the bad communication brought me back to the days that Eddie Jordan, Gian Carlo Minardi, Guy Ligier, Ken Tyrrell, Lord Hesketh and all time favourite Peter Sauber
