You know what they say about lightening striking twice – well what do they say about it striking three times? Ferrari in qualifying for this latest Belgian Grand Prix at famous Spa had reason to curse the conspicuous sense of deja vu.
The Austrian GP took place just one week after Dovizioso took the victory in Brno against Marquez and Lorenzo. Even if Ducati had dominated the different practice sessions, Marquez managed to get the pole
As we approach the 3rd Round of the FIA World Endurance Championship ‘Super Season’, who will be the Brits to follow at the 6 Hours of Silverstone on 19th August…
In a season of often inexplicable twists and turns, this one in Hungary was instead an case of history repeating. Appropriately for 2018, the lightening hitting the precise same spots as in Germany a week ago was in itself highly uncanny.
The German Grand Prix weekend at Hockenheim was but the latest reminder of the mantras’ efficacy. And the sternest one. Sebastian Vettel took a crushing pole position in his Ferrari – Mercedes spoke of the Italian car having a half second advantage on the straights alone. And moreover Vettel’s title foe Lewis Hamilton started 14th after a qualifying hydraulics failure on his Mercedes.
The FIA have announced changes to the EOT (Equivalence of technology) across the LMP1 field prior to the 6 Hours of Silverstone in an aim to bring the private LMP1 teams closer to the performance of the hybrid Toyotas.
The British Grand Prix was about coming to a realisation. Martin Brundle called it in Friday practice – that in 2018 we have to get used to the idea that Ferrari will be quick everywhere. And if this one was the red car’s ultimate test then it passed it triumphantly.
“Ferrari will be waking up this morning dazed by how they are leading both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships; Mercedes at how they are not.”
And in France at the Paul Ricard circuit – F1’s first visit to the country since 2008 and the first to this circuit since 1990 – this continued. Hamilton and Mercedes zigged while Vettel and Ferrari zagged.

Sebastian Vettel took Canadian Grand Prix victory for Ferrari, astonishingly the Italian team’s first win in Canada since 2004. And the previous day he had taken its first pole here since 2001.
Two years ago Daniel Ricciardo dominated the Monaco weekend, but lost the win due to Red Bull botching a pitstop. This time he dominated if anything to a greater extent – topping every single practice and qualifying session.
There are two things we associate chiefly with Spanish Grands Prix at the Barcelona track. One is dull races with little overtaking. The other is a strong steer of the competitive pecking order among the competing cars.
Baku eventually did its worst. A Lewis Hamilton victory really shouldn’t seem incongruous – even with Mercedes incongruously going three rounds without a win – but that it did says a lot about this latest Azerbaijan Grand Prix.
If the opening two rounds left us confused on whether Ferrari or Mercedes was on top this year, China seemed initially to provide a coherent answer. Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel dominated once again.
To think that just over two weeks ago after Melbourne’s season-opening qualifying session we were bracing ourselves for a year of Mercedes domination. Somehow Ferrari, and Sebastian Vettel, has won the campaign’s opening two rounds. The first time the Scuderia has done so since its pomp of 2004.

For all that much is new in contemporary F1, the pecking order in the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne’s Albert Park looked terribly familiar. The grand reveal of the first qualifying session confirmed the efficacy of the pre-season testing grapevine.
The 2018 MotoGP season is fast approaching and we are looking forward to watching the dramas unfold.
The start of the F1 season draws near and we are more than excited to see how this years changes effect the standings. This season we welcome a number of young drivers with Charles Leclerc joining the Sauber F1 Team replacing Pascal Wehrlein, Sergey Sirotkin…
