We could have a great Formula One season on our hands.

What a race that was! The first round of the 2021 F1 season was a fitting season opener. A race that went down to the last lap, some controversy mixed in there, brilliant driving, different strategies. I loved it. If that is what the rest of this season is going to be like, bring it… Continue reading We could have a great Formula One season on our hands.

Republicans lack the stones to do what is right, and what does the future hold for Lewis Hamilton?

The Republican Party has abdicated its duty of oversight for a safe re-election. As Trump’s second impeachment trial continues, we have seen the Senate and wider Republican party totally abdicate its duty of oversight. They simply are not listening to the arguments put forward by the House managers, including harrowing videos of the January 6th… Continue reading Republicans lack the stones to do what is right, and what does the future hold for Lewis Hamilton?

A Week in Review: 30th November-6th December

A Scotch egg is not a substantial meal. In fact, to my mind it’s not a meal at all. A scotch egg is a snack. You buy them in the snack chillers in supermarkets. But it is just another indicator of how confusing some of the regulations and restrictions of this tier system on businesses… Continue reading A Week in Review: 30th November-6th December

Chelsea may not be title-winners this season, but they are getting closer and closer. Chelsea may not have beaten Tottenham last weekend but they were the team most likely to win that game. The major chances went their way and they were the only side to put the ball in the back of the net,… Continue reading A Week in Review: 23rd-29th November

Scotland make it to the Euros! Thursday night was the most invested in international football I’ve felt for over two years; not since England got to the World Cup semi-final was I this interested. Scotland had their most concrete chance in years to qualify the European Championships next summer. They had already eased Israel out… Continue reading A Week in Review: 9th-15th November

Football petitions for fans’ return All football organisations released an open letter this week urging the government to allow fans to return to grounds. I can understand why they are pushing for this. Almost every other entertainment venue, pub, restaurant is allowed to be open to a degree, but sporting events are largely banned from… Continue reading A Week in Review: 5th-11th October

Hamilton is on the verge of making F1 history. But that is the least important thing going on in the world right now.

The new season of Formula One was meant to return at the weekend with Lewis Hamilton on the verge of true F1 greatness. His recent run of World Championships means he sits on six, one behind Michael Schumacher’s record of seven. Many claim that Formula One is not exciting anymore, as Mercedes and Hamilton seemingly… Continue reading Hamilton is on the verge of making F1 history.

Formula One: Is it all it’s cracked up to be?

Formula One is the premier form of motorsport. It is a circus that moves around the world for 9 months of the year, going all around the world, showcasing the absolute expression of speed in a car and the best drivers in the world. And yet, I’m not much of a fan of Formula One.… Continue reading Formula One: Is it all it’s cracked up to be?
