Belgium Grand Prix Review – Crash, Bang, Wallop

4 September 2012 6:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The summer break for the Formula 1 drivers is now over.  They have had their time to relax and are greeted by one of the most historic race tracks in the calendar. Spa Francorchamps.  The legendary circuit has been part of F1 for well over 60 years (in one form or another) and has always pleased the crowds with great racing, great overtaking and an occasional large incident.  The race at the weekend was certainly all of these.

Friday practice is one of those things that you rarely watch.  If there isn’t a good news breakfast show on or an early film you wouldn’t even know it was there.  Spa’s was utterly washed out.  Nothing massively interesting happened bar what could only be described as the longest pad I have ever heard a commentator do.  Top marks to James Allen and Jaime Alguersuari (former Toro Rosso driver from 2009 to »

Fernando Alonso Wins from Pole in German Gp

22 July 2012 11:24 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fernando Alonso started on Pole at Silverstone and couldn’t bring it home, but he had no such issue on Sunday in the Ferrari. Harried by Jenson Button’s McLaren until the final few laps, Fernando drove brilliantly to extend his lead in the Drivers Championship. Vettel followed him over the line in 2nd but is under investigation after passing Jenson Button off the racetrack on the penultimate lap.

Button drove brilliantly from 6th, eating slowly into Alonso’s lead but to no avail in the end finishing 3rd pending Vettel’s result. Raikkonen drove well in the Lotus but strategy stopped him catching the leaders, running 2 stints on the soft tyre and only one on the preferred harder option which performed better on the cars.

Sauber once again showed their dominance of the midfield, getting 5th and 6th with Kobayashi and Perez who took a penalty at the start »

Fernando Alonso Wins European Gp 2012

24 June 2012 8:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Did someone say Valencia is boring? Home favourite Fernando Alonso flew home from 11th on the grid to win the European Gp from Kimi Raikkonen. It was an action packed race, with Sebastian Vettel’s Red Bull building up a stunning lead before a safety car wiped that out and put Romain Grosjean’s Lotus right behind him.

However, Alonso had something different in mind and jumped Grosjean at the re-start with a very committed pass into turn 2. Vettel’s lead had disappeared with the safety car, but it got worse after the safety car released them to race, Vettel’s car deciding it had had enough and he stopped on track to give Alonso the lead.

Grosjean tried to chase Alonso down and was holding station well until he lost power with a faulty alternator and had to park it, but nicely finding a spot on the track that »

Sebastian Vettel on Pole in the European Gp 2012

23 June 2012 11:56 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sebastian Vettel has taken everyone’s breath away with a sublime one-lap stint at the end of Qualifying to start tomorrow’s race at the front. His nearest challenger was Lewis Hamilton but he was 0.3 of a second away from what could only be described as a perfect lap of Valencia. This put Vettel alongside the likes of Alain Prost and Jim Clark, and only at 24 this is shaping to be a career to match or even eclipse that of the greats.

In Q1, Red Bull’s Mark Webber struggled with a broken Drs rear wing so lost out on over a second a lap with it’s use. This left him in the clutches of the mid-pack teams but, suprisingly, Heikki Kovalainen also took advantage of it and pipped Webber and Vergne to steal 17th place on his final lap as the Chequered flag came down.
