F1 – British GP – Qualifying

Hello, MiniFans! Welcome to the first of the three sprint qualifying races that we are going to experience this season. What we understand as “qualifying” was held yesterday, in order to provide a starting grid for this sprint race. Only a third of the length of an average race will determine who starts on pole position tomorrow. The feedback has

F1 – Austrian GP – Race

Hallo, MiniFans! It’s the second race weekend hosted by the Red Bull Ring in two weeks and, so far, the script followed has mostly been the same. However, racing at the same track doesn’t mean the conditions will be the same. Will Verstappen repeat his win in front of a crowd that’s devoted to him? Let’s find out! Softer compounds

F1 – Austrian GP – Qualifying

Hallo, MiniFans! Second weekend of the double header is here and the tune hasn’t really changed much, or so it seemed in free practice. The biggest difference when comparing both racing weekends is the softer compounds chosen by Pirelli for the Austrian GP. So far, it’s the only double header slotted in the calendar, but that’s still susceptible to changes.

F1 – French GP – Race

Salut, MiniFans! France welcomes back races with a big amount of fans on the stands and the energy is starting to be similar to what we’re used to. In this race, medium tyres were the norm for the start, save for a handful of drivers in the midfield that decided to go against the current and give hards a try

F1 – French GP – Qualifying

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. However, the numerous red flags left Leclerc in pole position for the second consecutive race. It only remains to

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. Crashes and red flags are still prominent, due to slippery pavement, big decelerations and blocked tyres in braking zones, but drivers can get closer to the limit. We can’t really

F1 – Monaco GP – Race

Bonjour, MiniFans! Yesterday’s qualifying had a few surprises up its sleeve, such as Hamilton in seventh and Leclerc snatching pole, but Sunday morning didn’t want to disappoint and, knowing overtaking is deemed as extremely complicated in the Principality, it kicked off the chaos when the cars had barely made it out of their boxes to settle in on the main

F1 – Monaco GP – Qualifying

Salut, MiniFans! After the first season ever without Monaco, we’re back in the Principality’s streets for one more year of narrow street racing. There won’t be as may luxuries as we can usually see, but we can be sure that the fight for pole position will be the showstopper that it always is, given the close fight we’ve seen all
