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: Bahrain Grand Prix

The political tumult of Bahrain aside, competition got back to ‘normal’ this week with a front-three on the grid of Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull), season points-leader Lewis Hamilton (McLaren), and Mark Webber (Red Bull). Look just a tiny bit further beneath the surface, however, and some of the variety that has made 2012 such an exciting season is easy to see, with both Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) and Sergio Perez (Sauber) within striking distance of the top spot and Daniel Ricciardo (Tor...

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: Chinese Grand Prix

Race 3 of the 2012 Formula 1 season brings the series to Shanghai for the Grand Prix of China. Even before the race itself, drama was running high. Nico Rosberg drove to his first pole in 111 races and in the process gave Mercedes its first since Juan Manuel Fangio at Monza in 1955. At the same time, defending champion Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) failed to make into Q3 for the first time since 2009, taking 11th on the grid and being out-qualified by teammate Mark Webber for the third time this s...

Formula 1 2012: Malaysian Grand Prix

McLaren locked down the front row for the second consecutive race, with Lewis Hamilton once again edging out Jenson Button. But lurking at P3, his highest qualifying position since 2006, was Mercedes’ Michael Schumacher. And with rain beginning to fall, both Schumacher, a historically great wet-weather racer and Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel, who started today in P6, were looking good. Hamilton held the lead from the start, with Button also holding P2. Schumacher spun on Lap 1...

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&...
