The throaty roar of an inline-four, the swish of a chequered flag, the camaraderie of riding together, and the legends and their greatest hits.

Totally Tyred Out

Have you recovered from last weekend’s racing day marathon? I haven’t, but I can’t wait for some more madness. Even as we get ready for our next instalment at the controversial Bahrain circuit, it’s time for my race review. Don’t groan. I promise not to give you a blow-by-blow, just a few highlights, that’s all…. Read More ›

A F1 Fan’s Naiveté

Honestly, I am mortified. Not only did I miss, what could turn out to be one of the most exciting and controversial races this season (well, it is just Race 2), but I have also managed to delay the race review. Not that there is any point really. I am sure all of you have… Read More ›

Uncovered!

If you think that the F1 season is still over a month away, think again. January rolled on to a stop, giving way to February and the madness started anew (Finally! I thought this winter break would never end). The teams unveiled their cars in a flurry of fireworks, amidst mystery and celebration. Lotus and… Read More ›

That’s All Folks!

Lady Luck screamed, “Hurrahhhh,” as Sunday night came upon us. I sat cross-legged in front of the television. My heart rate was inexplicably high; I Tweeted like a woman possessed, and shushed my dad as he tried to have a conversation with me. The stakes were high. Fernando Alonso was the last man standing between… Read More ›

Lewis, Texas Ranger

“Oh no!” I groaned, looking at the calendar. “Oh no! Just one more race? Oh no!” It was past 2am on Monday morning. My eyes burned from staring unblinking at the computer, and I was a little light-headed. Now, that is what happens when you have a race in the wee hours of the morning…. Read More ›

Warning: Ice Ahead

He crossed the finish line and listened as his team congratulated him over the radio. Then he said, “I told you guys, don’t stop believing.” Sebastian Vettel had come a long, long way, one that involved starting from the pits, right at the back, and ending the race at 3rd. It was a phenomenal race,… Read More ›

Up Close and Personal

They say F1 is a TV sport. And perhaps, they are right, in a way. They say you can never see a complete race live on track. Perhaps they are right, in a way. They say there is no point in watching an F1 race live. They are absolutely dead wrong. Television only tells you… Read More ›

Welcome to India

“They aren’t being very subtle, are they,” Lady Luck said, settling down next to me and propping her feet up on my dashboard. I swerved and hit the brakes. “Hey, what are you doing here?” I asked, as an irritable driver honked behind me. “Oh, Sepang was done. They’re all in Phillip Island now,” she… Read More ›

Winging It

I yawned and stretched, reaching for my gigantic mug of tea. Lady Luck was fast asleep, curled up on the astro turf. Lewis Hamilton came a bit too close. She glanced up and snarled. I bet she did. There can be no other reason. Because the next time I caught a glance of Lew-Lew, he… Read More ›

[News] I Had Scrambled Drivers For Breakfast

Remember how we started the F1 season? I know it’s a distant memory – it is for me. So much has happened since then. But remember the beginning? Our greatest heartache then, was those ugly-ass noses. I mean, for crying out loud. Wondering why I am bringing that up right now? Friday was supposed to… Read More ›
