Salut, MiniFans! France welcomes the circus once again and we’re back in Paul Ricard, a circuit that’s not overly loved by fans. During the weekend, numerous cars have been affected by the yellow bananas and the asphalt runoff areas, the former ones getting complained about on radio to the FIA, due to team managers needing to remain under the cost

F1 – Azerbaijan GP – Race

Salam, MiniFans! Up until Q3, it seemed like it would be another Monaco weekend for Mercedes, but they pulled off an incredible tow that left Hamilton in second and Bottas dead last in tenth, as he didn’t receive a favour back.

F1 – Azerbaijan GP – Qualifying

Salam, MiniFans! We’re back in Azerbaijan for a second consecutive race in street circuits, but, this time, the track is more forgiving, as it’s wider and has more runoff areas.

F1 – Spanish GP – Race

Hola, MiniFans! A dark sky greeted us today, expectations risen for at least a bit of rain during the race, a few drops even coming down to play before the start, but the forecast wasn’t being kind to fans. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy one more day of racing where we could see either Hamilton converting his 100th

F1 – Spanish GP – Qualifying

Hola, MiniFans! Barcelona is a staple in the championship and we’re back in Spain. We could finally reach a total of a hundred pole positions for Hamilton, but we are also celebrating Verstappen’s one hundredth race with Red Bull, his first having notably been a win in this very same circuit five years ago, almost to the day. The qualifying

F1 – Portuguese GP – Qualifying

Olá, MiniFans! Portimao did well last season and it earned a contract renewal for this season. The rollercoaster, as it’s affectionately known, provided incredible racing and it was only fair that it got another chance. As usual, Q1 kicked off with Haas being the firsts on track, as well as FIA’s new favourite pastime, deleting lap times due to leaving
