Sebastian Vettel takes title number four in India

Indian Grand Prix, New Delhi 24-27 October 2013

By Michael Harvey Well, Red Bull Racing’s strategy could not have made it harder for their three-time champion to become a four-time champion this morning, but that’s exactly what he did. Maybe Red Bull just wanted to put on a bit of a show. Or maybe even Red Bull underestimated just how good their champion […]

Video: Racecar hits flying door at 225km/h

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 3:50 pm on Tuesday August 20, 2013

Racing drivers aren’t cut from the same cloth as you and I. Their internals are forged from unobtanium and their minds wired up to sniff out circuits, not spreadsheets. Strange creatures, we understand one of this enigmatic breed is apparently terrified by ducks… Anyway, Mike Simpson, Ginetta GT3 racer. Last weekend at Brands Hatch, the […]

Vettel: guilty, or innocent? Verdicts, please

By Michael Harvey Is anyone out there shocked that Sebastian Vettel did what he did on Sunday? And then tried, and failed spectacularly, to cover it up? I’ve never really bought the ‘lovely young man, that Vettel’ thing. Number one, he is a triple world champion at the age of 25. You can’t do that […]

Lotus launches new F1 car – and wheel…

Did you tune in to the Lotus launch last night? A strange event, not least for the fact it seems, upon rampant digital speculation, that the event was less a new car launch than an exercise in disinformation. Certainly the most scrutinised image was the car’s new steering wheel (above). We urge you to make […]

Schumacher calls it (final) quits

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 10:03 am on Wednesday November 28, 2012

Eras in grand prix racing are demarked by an individual driver’s dominance, described by that champion’s look, that champion’s style. So as the fifties belonged to Fangio, so the sixties did to Jim Clark. Split the 1970s down the middle and give half to Emerson Fittipaldi, half to Niki Lauda and the eighties; well you’re […]

Was Webber ripped-off by getting pole?

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 9:30 am on Monday October 15, 2012

It’s going to take a miracle to stop Sebastian Vettel winnng his third world championship in a row now. After winning in Korea last weekend, he could wrap it up before Brazil at this rate. Maybe in Austin, Texas? The Americans would like that; as far as we know he’s the only F1 driver to […]

Alonso freaking out as Vettel attacks

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 11:21 am on Monday October 8, 2012

Before last night’s Japanese Grand Prix, we reckoned only Sebastian Vettel could stop Fernando Alonso from taking this year’s crown. But after the race, it looks like only ‘Nando can stop Seb from stealing the title and making it three in a row for the 25-year old German. Alonso’s lead is now just four points […]

Should Schu have never come back?

Posted by Top Gear Australia at 6:42 pm on Friday October 5, 2012

You won’t have missed the news that Michael Schumacher has, again, retired from Formula One motor racing. He has, of course, again, been retired from F1. Just as his old boss Luca de Montezemolo pushed him out in 2006 to make way for Kimi Raikkonen, so his latest boss Ross Brawn has eased him out […]
