Ferrari faces F1 turmoil as James Allison leaves the team with immediate effect
Ferrari’s Formula 1 technical director James Allison has left the team with immediate effect, it was announced today. Allison, who began his second stint with the Scuderia in the middle of the 2013 season after previously working for the team under Ross Brawn between 2000 and 2005, helped Ferrari recover from a winless 2014 season to score three victories last year. But 2016 has proved difficult for the Italian team, as it is so far yet to win a ...

Analysis: Did Hamilton back Rosberg up in Hungary and other stories from the race
Not the thriller that last year’s Hungarian Grand Prix proved to be, this year’s event was nevertheless tense in the battle between the Red Bull and Ferrari cars and strategy was pivotal to the outcome for a number of drivers. Ferrari has not had the best time of it lately when it comes to strategy decision-making, but in Hungary they were on good form with two very different strategies for Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen that saw both finish...

Daniel Ricciardo “happy again” after Hungary F1 result stems Verstappen challenge
Daniel Ricciardo allowed himself a quiet smile of satisfaction after Sunday's Hungarian Grand Prix, knowing that across the weekend, from the tricky mixed conditions qualifying session to the race, he had reasserted himself over his young team mate Max Verstappen. Recent races have gone Verstappen's way, with Silverstone the first time that the 18 year old had out qualified the 27 year old Australian. He then built on that in the race to score an...

Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying: Nico Rosberg pips Lewis Hamilton to pole
Nico Rosberg claimed pole position for the Hungarian Grand Prix in a qualifying session that was heavily disrupted due to wet weather. The first part of the session was delayed by 20 minutes after a heavy rainstorm in the build up to qualifying hit the Hungaroring track, and Q1 ultimately lasted one hour and 14 minutes after a further rain shower and three crashes blighted the running by bringing out four red flags. The circuit had dried out by t...

What’s going on with suggestions of Sebastian Vettel switching to Mercedes F1 team?
Christian Horner has described Sebastian Vettel as "rattled" by the problems at Ferrari and suggested that he may well switch to Mercedes for the 2018 F1 season. He said this for a reason, so what is the reason and how much likelihood is there of something like that happening? Well the timing is linked to the announcement of Nico Rosberg's new two year contract at Mercedes, but also to the weekend ahead where Red Bull has a clear chance to beat M...

Nico Rosberg “fine” with F1 team radio rules as FIA issues further clampdown
Nico Rosberg may have been on the wrong end of a penalty over a breach of team radio rules, but said today he believes the restrictions on team radio messages that were introduced at the start of the 2016 Formula 1 season have made the sport more challenging for the drivers, while the FIA has moved to tighten the rules further ahead of the Hungarian Grand Prix. Rosberg's world championship points lead was cut to just one after he was given a ten-...

Debate: After Hungary, do F1’s yellow flag rules need modernising?
When is a 'lift' on the throttle enough to avoid genuine danger and when is it an infringement of the rules? And are the rules appropriate for the ever more safety conscious F1 of today? Even after Lewis Hamilton had beaten Nico Rosberg to victory in last weekend’s Hungarian Grand Prix, there was still an intense focus on their disagreement over the German’s pole position, which was secured 24 hours earlier, in controversial circumstances, accord...

Monday Debate: Was Max Verstappen out of order in Kimi Raikkonen Hungary F1 duel?
The battle between Kimi Raikkonen and Max Verstappen at the end of the Hungarian Grand Prix livened up a Formula 1 race that had long been decided at the front. Lewis Hamilton jumped pole sitter Nico Rosberg for the lead at the crucial first corner and Daniel Riccardo was sitting comfortably in third for Red Bull – other than some late race pressure from Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel. So the focus of the concluding stages of the race was on yet anot...

Hungarian Grand Prix FP2: Nico Rosberg fastest as Lewis Hamilton crashes out
Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the second practice session at the Hungarian Grand Prix after his Mercedes Formula 1 teammate Lewis Hamilton crashed out early on. Hamilton had deposed Rosberg at the top of the times during the early running on the soft Pirelli tyre by just 0.001s, but a few minutes later he hit the barriers at the exit of Turn 11 after losing the rear of his car by touching the outside kerb on the entry to the corner. The wo...
