Beste Max Verstappen fan, ja jij !

Beste Max Verstappen fan, afgelopen weekend was een thuis race, een race waar we vroeger al watertanden van kregen toen Jos The Boss nog rond reed in zijn Arrows en Tyrrell, dat prachtige circuit waar we in de jaren massaal naar toe gingen om onze held, ja papa van, toe te juichen. Beste Max Verstappen fan… … wat schaam ik me dood voor jou, ja jij die 150 euro betaald

Paul Tracy ’s Benetton Test, September 1994

Many believe Schumacher ran illegal driver aids during 1994 because one of Benetton’s former drivers, Jos Verstappen, once claimed so during an interview in 2011. This along with all the other arguments are analysed extensively in the book however, what is not commonly appreciated is five other drivers stepped inside the B194 that year also. Schumacher, Lehto, Herbert and Allan McNish all drove the 1994 Benetton and their views on

XXXV Grote prijs van Nederland in 2020?

Oké ik ben klaarblijkelijk een van de weinige die geen voorstander van een Nederlandse Grand Prix, omdat ik het vertrouwen mis dat de Grand Prix na drie jaar nog steeds goed bezocht zal worden door de Nederlandse race Fans. Nu kwam dus het nieuws naar buiten dat de gemeente Zandvoort 4 miljoen zou willen vrij maken om te investeren in de infrastructuur, dat is fijn maar doe het niet alleen

The Flying Dutchman After 1994

The Flying Dutchman, Jos Verstappen, the father of current F1 star Max, arrived in the sport with a BANG. On his debut, the 1994 Brazilian GP, he arguably caused one of the most horrific looking multi car pileups ever. This had followed massive hype surrounding the 22-year old that he was F1’s next big thing. Some believed the pressure of debuting for one of F1’s top teams (Benetton) alongside the

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. The result was one point by Verstappen during the Austrian Grand Prix. 2002 looked promising with the Arrows A23, build around Jos Verstappen. Until Tom Walkinshaw

This blog post is written in memoriam to my father, who would turned 76 today. The Canadian Grand Prix of 2000 is one ofthe best races me and my father ever watched on the Television. I can still feel the thrills when it started to rain during the race, I became so excited because there was an Orange F1 car on the track, with a driver wearing an orange helmet,

Max is ook maar een jochie van 21!

Beste landgenoten ik wil het met jullie hebben over het feit dat men zich niet kan gedragen, men meent zich te moeten provoceren naar andersdenkende toe. Beste Nederlandsche Formule 1 fans… kunnen we effe normaal doen? Max Verstappen is een jochie van 21 dat echt nog wel wereldkampioen wordt. Maar hij is niet special, papa Jos heeft zijn werk gewoon goed gedaan! Inderdaad ik typ gewoon Nederlandsche in plaats van

Interview with Ibrar Malik the Author of F1 1994

On the 13th of August I had an interview with Ibrar Malik, the writer of the book: 1994 – The Untold Story of a Tragic and Controversial F1 Season. Better still, it was a conversation between two fans, two fans who share the same passion for the same season. 1994 Is probably the most controversial season in Formula One history. Illegal software, wheel banging on the tracks, and sadly some

Working Within Benetton During the 1990’s

“Berger was the thickest driver I have worked with, Alesi was a close second”…those are the forthright views of a former Benetton mechanic who is ready to let rip!  The ex-Benetton mechanic has kindly contributed towards the upcoming book, but cannot be named because he still works in F1. However, his anonymity means he can be brutally honest. An amazing article by Ibrar Malik! Benetton started 1996 with high hopes
