Had he lived, Ferenc Szisz would have turned 141 today. Good ol’ Ferenc was not, of course, a McLaren driver, since in fact he died in February 1944, at the age of 70, fully 19 years before Bruce McLaren Motor Racing Ltd had been incorporated. Good ol’ Ferenc was and is, however, a veritable motor racing legend, and always will be, his insuperable claim to fame being that he won the first Grand Pr…

McLaren might not yet be talking publicly at great length about McLaren-Honda, but, believe me, there’s a lot of hard work going on behind the frosted glass interior walls at Woking to make sure the partnership gets started on the right foot. Not least, McLaren-Honda sounds like it’ll be a busy place next year – after all, if you believe what you read on the internet, they must be running about si…

It had been a momentous season, one with many parallels in the present day: downsized turbocharged cars held sway, and, having banned mid-race refueling, the FIA also enforced a stri…

It feels as though Formula 1 has rolled through Europe and barely taken its foot off the throttle – apart from the odd new face here or there, nothing seems to have really changed. Is the 2014 season really readying itself for one last European hurrah before the start of that (increasingly lengthy) final drag that leads us to Abu Dhabi, the double-points denouement that Bernie Ecclestone so hopes …
