Comment on F1: Sky finally claim the Grand Prix by andrewlewin

Tue, 01 Nov 2011 15:50:00 +0000

Thanks for stopping by and commenting! I agree, Keith Huewen is extremely good and clearly dedicated to delivering the best coverage he can on any assignment; the way he threw himself into Sky's NASCAR coverage (even if Sky then did abandon it after 2 years) spoke volumes. Not seen a bad word said about the guy, genuinely liked across TV channels (he's popped up in Eurosport's MotoGP coverage) and his handling of the astonishingly difficult broadcast from Las Vegas for IndyCar last month was just exemplary. That said I'm not sure he's going to be fronting the F1 broadcasts if it means spending half the year on the road - that's a big ask of anyone. I've noticed that Sky Sport's rugby presenter Simon Lazenby seems to be the current 'golden boy' who is said to be favourite to get the gig. Seems that Martin Brindle is being lined up as commentator - although making backing down to 'co' status like he used to be? Maybe this year has shown him that the lead role isn't as much fun as it looked. David Croft seems to be increasingly mentioned as being set to pair up with him, which I'd be sad about if it means the end of his partnership with Anthony Davidson on 5live. I guess we shall see ...



Comment on F1: Sky finally claim the Grand Prix by Chris Williams

The more I see on YouTube, and read the written articles, of Keith Huewen, the more I'm looking forward to having him present F1 on Sky. I don't want Ed Chamberlain, Sam Matterface or anyone else (not even Natalie Sawyer) parachuted in as a face with no knowledge - Keith comes across as a genuine fan and connoisseur of motosport. I'm all the more excited to learn about his past Motocycling career; he's Jake Humphrey and David Coulthard rolled into one.

The Mercedes 1-2-3 passed me by, I have to admit. I wonder if it is significant? At the other end, the Ferrari engine seems a little prone to sending out smoke distress signals which must worry Maranello for the full season.

Personally I like road courses, but some work better than others and for some reason this one just didn't. I have to agree, not a particularly compelling race. I figured I was spoiled by the antics of the Chinese F1 GP so it's interesting to have a new set of eyes.

So, is the fact of a Mercedes 1, 2, 3 significant or just an interesting factoid?

Looks like Jimmie Johnson is back. Luck was on his side with that pit stop, but he ran a good race and had a strong enough car to hold off Harvick at the end.

Thanks for posting IRL information. I don't get versus and have a hard time finding race recaps as detailed as yours. I'm also interested in MotoGP and F1 and have just started a similar (but much less detailed) blog. Yours is interesting and informative. Thanks for being a good role model.

of course jimmy boy won the brick again. nascar wouldn't have it any other way. I'm through watching scripted racing. this is worse than f1. poor montoya should have stayed in f1.. he's a foreigner and nascar won't let him win.. unless it's a warm fuzzy story line that will increase ratings! you all have fun watching the newest, biggest soap opera.. I think i'd rather watch golf.. or maybe lawn bowling!



Comment on F1: Round 4 – Sakhir, Bahrain – 26 April by andrewlewin

Sun, 26 Apr 2009 14:59:25 +0000

Good question! I've been a bit reluctant to say that - there's a long way to go, lots could change, and the relative form of the teams is changing from race to race. But that's why this race seemed really significant to me: the ability to win when they didn't seem to have the pace, they didn't have pole, and they really had to work for it. And it all came together, partly with 'luck' but mainly through the solid foundations that really win titles. So I'm much more of a believer about Button/Brawn winning both titles now than I was 24 hours ago. Certainly the constructors is looking VERY good already. But "anything can happen in Formula 1, and it usually does" as the great Murray Walker used to say.

In your blog you say "When you have luck on such firm foundations as that, then you have ‘luck’ that can take you all the way to a championship." I totally agree. Do you reckon it will be a Brawn GP clean sweep of the two championships then?

Comment on F1: Round 14 – Monza, Italy – Sun Sep 14 by fifthdecade

Mon, 15 Sep 2008 01:59:34 +0000

Nice summary. Very thorough. The move Hamilton made on Webber was carbon copy what Schumacher used to do - he even did it to his own brother, I think at this same track. Let's not forget this "blocking" behaviour was illegal until the FIA allowed Schumacher to get away with it. The new chicane rule will also reduce overtaking, as I said in my blog. IT certainly allowed Hamilton to catch Massa more quickly at Curva Grande...

Mon, 11 Aug 2008 15:42:16 +0000

Yep, you're quite right Allmendinger was Champ Car not IRL - brain fade on my part, I did know that, honest. Thanks for the correction, which I've added to the piece. Dario of course was both, starting off in Champ Car before getting dragged into IRL when Team Green made the jump. He seemed reluctant, was said not to like the ovals - and then proved rather good on them. Just a shame that the switch to NASCAR has gone so poorly for him.

You might want to get the facts right for your story - AJ has never raced in the IRL. He was a successful driver in the Champ Car World Series... big difference. (Dario and Sam Hornish were the drivers in the IRL.)
