Formula 1 2012: European Grand Prix - Alonso Wins!

Qualifying on the street circuit in Valencia, Spain, for Round 8 of the 2012 Formula 1 season kept nearly all of the hallmarks of the year intact, offering both the expected and the not-so-much in equal measure. On the expected side was a front row of Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) and Lewis Hamilton (McLaren). Vettel has won both the pole and the race in Valencia the past 2 years as well as the last two polls in succession. This particular run to the top of the time charts tied him for third on th...

Formula 1 2012: Canadian Grand Prix

Red Bull Racing looked increasingly ready to take the 2012 season by the horns heading into the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal. Mark Webber’s victory in Monaco made the team the first two-time winner of the year (Sebastian Vettel, Bahrain), and Vettel followed up this performance by taking the pole in Montreal. Vettel’s pole, his 32nd, also tied him with Nigel Mansell at fifth on the all-time career list. Webber doubled down on the Red Bull might by qualifying P4. That said, Red Bul...

Formula 1 2012: Monaco Grand Prix

Photo: LAT Images And the 2012 count continues; five races and five winners from five teams, Williams’ Pastor Maldonado being the most recent following his triumph in Spain. An eventful qualifying in Monaco set up the distinct possibility of a sixth new winner. Michael Schumacher took his first pole since 2006, but had to surrender it due to a 5 grid-spot penalty stemming from a collision in Spain with Maldonado’s Williams teammate Bruno Senna, leaving Mark Webber (Red Bull) in th...

Formula 1 2012: Spanish Grand Prix

Four races, four winners, four constructors. That’s the 2012 Formula 1 season heading in the Spanish Grand Prix. And though lots of hand-wringing is starting to emerge regarding whether tires and their management are playing too large a role in making the field as competitive as it is, there can be little doubt that a year like this is more exciting than a beginning-to-end championship run by a single car. You don’t hear the NFL or NASCAR, perhaps the two most successful spectator sp...

Formula 1 2012: Kimi Raikkonen interview post-China

Photo: Lotus F1 Team. China was a tough Grand Prix for Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus). After qualifying P4 and running as high as 2nd late in the race an excursion into the marbles and tire degradation saw him plummet to 14th by the checkered flag. Teammate Romain Grosjean helped carry the team flag, coming in 6th after starting in P10 on the grid. Despite the tough race in China, Raikkonen's woes can't hold a candle to Michael Schumacher at Mercedes, who has 1 point and 2 DNFs to...

Formula 1 2012: Sauber, Perez surge in Malaysia

Fernado Alonso and Ferrari won the race, with Alonso taking over the championship points lead in the process. But as improbable as this might have seemed prior to the start of the season, the ascension of Sauber, with Sergio Perez having finished second and both he and Kamui Kobayashi in the Top 10 after two events, is no less so. Perez started ninth in the Sauber C31-Ferrari, and was one of two drivers who changed tires from intermediate to rains after Lap 1. When the rain became too heavy and...

Formula 1 2012: Australian Grand Prix

Free at last! Let those racecars run! The winter was short, and even shorter what with personnel moves, technical adjustments, and shifting teams. Testing helped break the ice. But there’s nothing like actual points competition. And the season starts in Australia with a classic the-more-things-change the-more-they-stay-the-same setup. On the change side, Red Bull Racing – for which two-time consecutive champion Sebastian Vettel ran the table in 2011 -- is relegated to Row 3 of the s...

Formula 1: Update - Dollars and Designs

RUSSIAN GREEN: Caterham confirmed Vitaly Petrov as its second driver for 2012, joining Heikki Kovalainen and replacing Jarno Trulli. Petrov’s debut in Caterham’s CT01 will take place at the second pre-season test Feb. 21-24 at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya. Trulli’s departure leaves Formula 1 without an Italian driver for the first time since the 1960s. The switch to Petrov was ascribed largely the greater sponsorship he could bring to the team. BRAWNY MERC: Mercedes&...

Formula 1: Update - Caterham, Lotus, Marussia, and Schumi

Photo: Mathieu Bitton TESTING: The first round of testing for the 2012 season will take place in Jerez, Spain, Feb. 7-10. EX-LOTUS: Caterham , last year’s Team Lotus, has targeted scoring points as its goal for 2012. The team’s best performance in 2012 was 13th, which it hit three times, but the addition of KERS on the new Renault-powered CT01 vehicle has sparked optimism. Even at 13th, Lotus showed the most development of the three teams that debuted in 2010, easily besting HRT ...
