Goodbye, my love, Goodbye Formula One

Goodbye my love, Goodbye, Goodbye, auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye and au revoir my love. Demis Roussos sang it in 1973, after today’s race at Singapore it seems I have to sing it as well. What has happened with the sport I used to love so much, what happened many like me are on the point to say Goodbye my love? The last seasons, basically since 2009, the Formula One isn’t that

The Formula one crisis continues in 2018

The 2018 Formula One season officially started today with Australian Grand Prix held on Albert Park. What can we say? The race was, as previous races in 2017, more a parade with less action on the track. Vettel won the race thanks to the Virtual Safety Car, Some say Hamilton had a Software problem, and Kimi was faster than Vettel and Hamilton, but finished 3th. For the rest it was

Why not revive the Aurora AFX Championship?

Today we see a lot of young talent showing excellent skills and drive excellent races however; they probably do not make it to the Formula One, since Formula One became some kind of Elite sport you can only drive in if you are backed by a lot of money or if you have connections. The result poor races with less action. Why don’t we bring the Aurora AFX Championship back

Grid Girls are part of Formula One!

Hello media, why did you publish the news that Grid Girls will be history soon. You said that the Grid Girls are from a long gone era, like Bernie Ecclestone. Why don’t you spread the word of the fans who like to keep them? There is no reason to have them banned from the grid. They are an addition for the sport. It is a political game isn’t it dear

UnracedF1, born out of a passion for the unknown!

Once upon a time, I came up with the idea to create a website, a website that is dedicated to Unraced Formula One projects. Better said the idea was and is to create the Ultimate database of failed F1 ventures over the last 60 years and further. Many of these attempts to appear on the grid are long forgotten and lost in the dark corner of Formula One’s history. While

Formula 1; what does the future hold?

Currently the Formula One is in one of its most difficult era’s since the first official Grand Prix held in 1950. The Hybrid Turbo era is a lost decade if you ask me. However, in a few years, the news rules will be implemented in the Formula One and we will probably see a complete new Formula One.  Won’t we? What do we really want for the future of Formula

Give the third and test drivers their own event!

How about the idea of giving the third and / or test drivers their own race every Grand Prix weekend? This idea popped up in my mind after Felipe Massa retired from the Hungarian Grand Prix due some illness. His replacement is former Force India driver and current Williams third driver Paul di Resta. His last race was in November 2013 and comparing the cars from 2013 and the current

Paul Stoddart brings the Minardi 2-seaters back

Today I got a very big smile on my face, I received some news that since the Spanish Grand Prix the Minardi 2-seaters from Paul Stoddart will do some racing during the Grand Prix weekends to entertain the regular Formula One fan and allow him or her to experience the speed of a Formula One car with a V10 in it’s back.  Zsolt Baumgartner and Patrick Friesacher , both former
