Not feeling overly inspired to write poetry after the Japanese GP The race lost its appeal by the end of lap 43 for me   Something was off, right from the start of the race Running behind the safety car with some struggling to keep pace   I hate that feeling you get when there’s absolutely nothing you can do They say…

A day F1 fans would love to forget…but shouldn’t

A day F1 fans would love to forget…but shouldn’t

A day F1 fans would love to forget…but shouldn’t

It’s been over 20 years already since that tragic Grand Prix weekend in Imola when Formula One lost both Roland Ratzenberger and Ayrton Senna. It could have been three had Rubens Barrichello not survived his sensational crash at full flight.  It was a huge loss to the sport and a massive wake-up call to everyone, which prompted a massive emphasis…

#F1 Brilliant Bribes, Crashes and Smiles

#F1 Brilliant Bribes, Crashes and Smiles

As requested and promised, here is the Belgian Grand Prix race review in verse.  Enjoy

It’s been a little while since I’ve penned an F1 rhyme

I’ve been working on projects; I simply haven’t had the time

Excuses aside now let’s get cheeky some

And walk to the beat of this rhyming F1 drum

During the break (which felt like forever),

Ecclestone and his lawyers got quite ballsy and rather clever

F…

Drama and excitement was present…

Well the British Grand Prix is dusted in done

And so too is round number nine of F1’s title run

An interesting race full of thrills and spills

And moments in which spines felt uncomfortable chills

It began in lap one when Kimi ran wide

He rejoined in a fury with a spin and a slide

Massa did…
