He canceled an […]

The fastest track in Formula One. It’s known colloquially as ‘La Pista Magica’, and with good reason: the atmosphere is second to none. The old banking, lying adjacent to the modern racetrack, gives the circuit a sense of history that can’t be found anywhere else in the world and the Italian fans are passionate about […]

One of the world’s classic racetracks. Eau Rouge, Pouhon, Stavelot and Blanchimont are corners synonymous with speed and they’re all found here, at Spa-Francorchamps. The 7.004km track is the longest on the F1 calendar and its mix of long straights and high-g corners makes it one of the toughest of the year for drivers and […]

For AT&T Williams, conditions didn’t play to the team’s advantage with both drivers also suffering significant tyre wear. The 70 lap race concluded with Rubens Barrichello in 13th place from P15 on […]

Monaco with more run-off. The 4.381km Hungaroring is tight and twisty; there isn’t a straight worthy of the name and the average speed is just 190kph. The race is usually held in scorching heat, making it an endurance test for the drivers, despite the relatively small g-forces. The track is used infrequently during the year, […]

Sitting in the shadow of the majestic 22km Nürburgring Nordschleife, the modern day ’Ring is definitely the poorer relation. But as modern circuits go, the 5.148km track has its merits. It has a couple of good overtaking places; there’s a quick chicane (the Schumacher ‘S’) that requires commitment from the drivers and the atmosphere will […]
