Mad Swedes and Englishmen

By David Cameron - | Comments: no comment

I admit, the tiredness might have played a part, but the security guard couldn't have annoyed me more if he'd started talking in a comically high pitched voice and poked me intermittently with sticks. We went to walk into the paddock but he stopped

Something borrowed, something blue

By David Cameron - | Comments: one comment

It felt like ages since I'd been to a race track, and it was, but things were soon back in place: despite a very early trip to the airport on Thursday, a combination of an all day flight, massive queues to get through immigration, and a delay in

And the music goes on

I love coming to Monza: I always have. It was the first grand prix I ever came to, and then later it was my local circuit when I lived in Milan for a few years, so it's always been a bit of a homecoming. I imagine that Ocean don't share my enthusiasm

Blame it on the rain

“You're not going to have an easy job with the blog this weekend,” Alexa noted in passing when we spoke ahead of my flight to Brussels: when I asked her what she meant she would only state enigmatically that's I'd see when I got there. But Spa is

Everything changes

Back in the paddock in Budapest, and nothing much ever changes. After missing Hockenheim due to a maliciously timed explosive appendix suffered by my poor wife (now on the road to recovery, even if she has to make a lot of stops along that road to

You keep me hanging on

I don't want to belabour the point, but maybe the Europeans are right. I was certainly starting to think so this morning after the GP3 qualifying session, when the second and third placed guys (Rio Haryanto and Nico Mueller) turned up for the press

Mustn't grumble

By David Cameron - | Comments: one comment

Silverstone is always a difficult weekend – I don't know why, but it always seems to work out that way. And the Europeans obviously hate coming here – the money is wrong, everyone drives on the wrong side of the road, the weather is always a problem

DP, (mega)phone home

By David Cameron - | Comments: 3 comments

Didier likes to find new and entertaining ways to annoy us all on a race weekend: well, if you're good at something you might as well stick to it, I guess. You'd think that a major race series' technical director would be a fairly mature person, but

Plane speaking

The more I think about it, the more I think we weren't supposed to come to Valencia. Initially it was almost impossible to get a flight here: one airline on strike, another with no return leg on Sunday, until Marco finally found a flight from the

We sat down with Alberto Valerio and Vladimir Arabadzhiev from Scuderia Coloni. If the tall Brazilian is one of the most famous faces in the GP2 paddock thanks to his raucous laugh that can be heard from miles away, his charming and mellow

Caution: contents are hot

This blog cancelled due to extreme heat // Istanbul is really, really hot. This may not seem like much of a revelation, but it probably needs to be repeated constantly, as everyone seems to forget it. For example, the iSport mechanics were all out to

We are now taking orders for 2030 seats: order now to avoid disappointment // The heat in Istanbul always catches everybody out: I don't know why, as it's always hot here (apart from 2 years ago when the race was a month earlier than usual, and we

How well do you know your teammate?

When we met with the Dams’ funny and laid-back pair we never expected to find out who thinks sorbets are healthier than ice creams, who simply cannot tell long jokes and who races... commando. And all the above is about the same driver! Find out

Davide, Karun, Nico, Jerome and Checho feature on feature race day // The early start for the feature race in Monaco always catches out a few people, particularly as it's Friday and most people think there is no racing, but you would think that at

Barcelona to Monaco: it's just another day for GP2 // Monaco has rolled around again, and I can't be the only one who thinks it's a bit odd to have the race this early in the season: we only started the season last week, how can it be time to go to
