The new era of Formula 1, spare capacity, and the benefits of focus

The new era of Formula 1, spare capacity, and the benefits of focus

Formula 1 is back! We’ve all been anxiously awaiting the introduction of the new cars. And boy did they deliver. We’ve seen two quite dramatic races (engaging drama, not polarizing drama like the 2021 Abu Dhabi GP), with Ferrari finally being back in the mix for the championship this year. Mercedes have a ways to […]

Max Verstappen

Max Verstappen

16 years, 10 months, and 13 days. That’s how old Max Verstappen was when he signed a contract with Red Bull Racing. 17 years, 5 months and 16 days when he made his debut for Scuderia Toro Rosso at the 2015 Australian Grand Prix. 24 years, 2 months and 13 days when he won his […]

The Benefits of Mindfulness

The Benefits of Mindfulness

The Formula 1 #SaudiArabianGP was a race to remember. The championship battle between Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team’s Lewis Hamilton and Red Bull Racing & Red Bull Technology’s Max Verstappen is so intense that it is almost uncomfortable to watch. ALMOST, because of course my calendar for this weekend has been cleared. Nobody is going to keep me from […]

The One Team Mindset

The One Team Mindset

Sunday’s Formula 1 #BrazilGP was an absolute banger! It had everything. Drama, intrigue, and an amazing comeback story with a victorious ending. Let’s start by acknowledging that not every driver could have done what Lewis Hamilton did, regardless of the dominance of his car in a straight line. Not everyone can take a 25-place penalty and continue […]

Yuki the Rookie

Yuki the Rookie

Yuki Tsunoda. For those who don’t know him, Yuki is a Formula 1 driver from the Red Bull junior program, who drives for Scuderia AlphaTauri F1 Team, Red Bull Racing & Red Bull Technology’s sister team. Yuki is a rookie, and has had quite a season. He came out strong at the beginning of the season, but that […]

Team Work makes the Dream Work

It is a massively overused platitude, and yet Sunday’s Formula 1#RussianGP once again showed the value of collaboration. Collaboration allowed Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team’s Lewis Hamilton to secure his 100th(!) victory in F1. Lack of it cost McLaren Racing’s Lando Norris his first. Neither Lewis nor Lando wanted to come in for a tyre change when it started […]

The Differences between Bias & Racism

The Differences between Bias & Racism

After the #BritishGP, I wrote a blog about bias and its impact on people’s view of the crash between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. I got a lot of questions about bias in general, some questions about the race, and a few essays about why Lewis/Max was in the wrong. I’ve refrained from giving my opinion about the incident, but did mention that bias is never an excuse for racism.

The Dopamine Machine

The Dopamine Machine

The race was also memorable because of the emotional response of the entire Williams team after Nicholas Latifi and George Russell scored the team their first points in a long time. We heard George on the board radio saying ‘If you need to compromise my race to help Nicky, do it. Prioritise Nicky’. George is […]
