The Orange Arrows formula 1 summer of 2002

It’s the summer of 2002, the Orange Arrows team from Tom Walkinshaw is on the edge of bankruptcy. It’s the summer Paul Stoddart loves to see Walkinshaw burning and will have the ultimate payback in 2003 when purchasing most of the team’s assets in favour of his Minardi team. Moreover, it is the summer of many rumours in and outside the paddock. Arrows is sold to an American, Arrows is

Jos Verstappen and his options for 2004 and 2005

Jos Verstappen had a contract to race for the Orange Arrows team from Tom Walkinshaw. However, just before the start of the season he ditched Verstappen, while the Arrows A23 was built around him, and hired Heinz-Harald Frentzen instead. In 2003, he signed a contract with Minardi. Not the season he expected. So what would it be for 2004? Jaguar, Jordan, perhaps Sauber or stay with Minardi?  We know now

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!

Book review: 1994 the Untold Story by Ibrar Malik

The old rumour mill; Verstappen and Williams

Welcome to the fourth episode of the Old Rumour Mill of Formula One. A special blog dedicated to the old rumours of Formula One. Many rumours appeared during the years.

Orange Arrows survived 2002, with Verstappen?

Orange Arrows would appear in 2003 on the grid, if they kept Jos Verstappen in 2002?  A question I have in my mind for reasonable time now.  In 2001, the team drove with works Asiatech engines, freely, though it didn’t brought the team much.
