Buemi secures Toro Rosso deal

Red Bull protégé Sébastien Buemi will race for Scuderia Toro Rosso this year, although there is still no news about the identity of his team-mate. The Swiss was reserve driver for sister team Red Bull Racing last season, although he got very little running. He also finished only sixth in the GP2 series, driving for Christian Horner’s Arden team. He impressed when he tested for Toro Rosso after...

REFLECTIONS Bernie's happy; now what about Silverstone's fans? Alonso a hero - in González Ferrari and British GP 'Smokey' Yunick's Indy special graces Goodwood When I got home from Silverstone late on Sunday night, I poured a stiff scotch and soda, and sat down to watch the IndyCar race from Toronto, which was eventually won — after endless 'full-course yellows' — by Dario Franchitti. He was...

Lunch with . . . David Coulthard

From catching Senna's eye at Williams, to crossing swords with Schumacher, to helping Red Bull earn its wings, DC's F1 achievements go far beyond the statistics By Simon Taylor Lets deal with the statistics first. David Coulthard's 13 Formula 1 victories never won him the world title, but he was runner-up in 2001, and took third place in the table no fewer than four times. In his 247 Grands Prix...

Reflections – Winning Webber has the wunderkind in his sights – Spectre of Todt looms over fragile Formula 1… – Surtees tragedy proof that racing can never be safe When Rubens Barrichello superbly won the 2003 British Grand Prix for Ferrari, having outclassed Michael Schumacher all weekend, there was considerable pleasure in the paddock, for Rubens is among the most well liked of Formula 1...

Thoughts on the artifice of contemporary Formula 1, the brittle nature of sporting relationships and the sense of duty that united team-mates in simpler, distant times... Lewis Hamilton took pole position for the Chinese Grand Prix, followed by Kimi Raikkonen and Fernando Alonso, but on race day their positions were reversed, with the Ferrari winning conclusively from the Lotus and the Mercedes....

Cars, Stars and Stripes

ROB WIDDOWS - DISPATCHES I WONDER WHAT HE WAS THINKING ABOUT WHEN HE LOOKED out of his bedroom window just after dawn on Friday July 1.

Damien Smith, Editor On a recent trip to Maranello, I took a welcome diversion into Modena on the way back to Bologna airport.

The Motor Sport Month - Formula 1 News

Time for last orders?Another F1 season, another political minefield... By Adam Cooper Should team orders be part of Formula 1?
