|Video| What happens when you take a #F1 car to a club track day?

If you’re into cars, you’ve joked about it at least once. What would happened if someone took a Formula 1 car to a track day. Well, some clever old guy took an Arrows A22 F1 car out to a club day, and had a go! Watch as basically he just crushes everything out there *and then probably brags to his friends that he does everything “flat out”*.;)

Long story short, this needs to be one of the things I do now. ;)

|Video| Niki Lauda knows how to fix #F1

After watching Rush, and reading two biographies on Niki Lauda, he’s become one of my favorite racing drivers.

His no-bullshit approach to racing makes him super easy to relate to. In 50 seconds, he explains why F1 drivers seem bored with the current era of cars, why we see more drivers going straight from GP3/F3 to F1, and what can be done to change it.

100% agree, Niki.

|Video| Learn more about Jules Bianchi #ForzaJules #f1

If you’ve been following even a hint of the motorsport world over the last few days, you’ll have heard about the tragic accident that Jules Bianchi was involved in during the Japanese Grand Prix. I’m not going to talk about my opinion on the crash, or show any photos about it, because you can find things like that all over the internet.

Really what I wanted to show was an interview that Will Buxton did on Jules Bianchi this last October. Bianchi is one of those drivers that, if you’ve been following European single seaters, that you’ll know about. However, for most people he’s just been driving for a backmarker team.

|Video| Take a look at a #F1 Pit Garage (2013)

When you’re a Formula 1 fan, one of the nice things about having uncompetitive teams is that they allow the media more access to their pit garages. That’s just because the cars were so off the pace, there wouldn’t be much information for competing teams that they would want to steal for their cars.

I found a video of what the 2013 Mclaren and 2013 Caterham pit crews were doing on the cars during a Friday night. Both cars were pretty horrible, so we get to see the mechanics actually working on the cars!

Check it out before FOM nicks the video.

|Video| Onboard video of the Sochi GP Circuit #f1

So the Russian GP is planning to go ahead at the end of the year, so Infiniti took Sebastian Vettel and had him do an onboard lap in a road car. It’s not the most exciting looking layout if I’m honest.
Some sectors remind me of the Korean and Abu-Dhabi track, which frankly were flat, like most modern Tilke-circuits.

|Video| Lewis Hamilton gives the best interview in one lap ever…of ever ever #F1

People always say that interviews with Formula 1 drivers are boring, and they give canned answers. Well if you put them and the journalist behind the wheel of a car, that problem seems to go away…mostly!

Well played, guys. Entertaining from start to finish.

PS: Lewis can do 80 to 90 push ups? I can do like 30 now before I get tired…
