F1 frontline: November 2018

We're racing into an age of technical and design overhaul for Formula 1, but can Liberty Media build a platform strong enough to support it? You know how it is with landscapes; they stay the same for ages then suddenly and dramatically change. We seem to be seeing the construction work for a new Formula 1 landscape right now, something underlined at Singapore with the first renderings of how the...

Trackside View / Word on the Beat

Trackside View – Liège, Spa-Francorchamps The first few minutes at one of the world’s greatest venues Kimi Räikkönen and Max Verstappen look so at home in these early moments of the Spa weekend, around a circuit and in cars where they can express themselves.

Letters: October 2018

F1’s engine struggles Having recently become aware that 2021’s fabulous new Formula 1 engine rules are no longer, it seems to me that Mark Hughes is right – the manufacturers have too much say in what is going to happen, so Liberty and the FIA need to come to terms with the need to have independent rules created to foster improved competition.
