seb's legacy hangs on his own red five

Sebastian Vettel’s date with destiny awaits. After four years of unrewarded toil, can the man tasked with returning championship glory to the success-starved corridors of Maranello finally deliver? How Seb responds after two recent drubbings at Lewis Hamilton’s hands will likely play a pivotal part in how this forthcoming season’s title fight unfolds. This will be Vettel’s fifth year in Ferrari red. That’s a significant milestone because it represents the point at which, in his own Ferrari career, Vettel’s hero Michael Schumacher finally grabbed the Prancing Horse by the reins and rode it to the first of five consecutive championships. However, it also represents the point at which, having missed the mark repeatedly, Vettel’s predecessor Fernando Alonso departed having failed to depose Kimi Räikkönen as Ferrari’s last world champion.

Pushing the limits right from the off It’s been 12 weeks since the 2018 season finished in Abu Dhabi last December, so everyone was excited for the opening day of testing to unofficially start the 2019 Formula 1 year. The reigning world champions Mercedes enjoyed a productive first day with Valtteri Bottas managing 69 laps in the morning and Lewis Hamilton taking over to run 81 laps in the afternoon. This shot of Lewis was captured at the exit of Turn 12. I noticed there were a lot of stones on the circuit as drivers were pushing quite hard and just as I arrived Hamilton ran wide, sending a golden plume of dust into the air.

f1 insider

01 LIBERTY UNDER FIRE Liberty Media’s acquisition of Formula 1’s commercial rights 18 months ago seemed to have ended the rancour that has characterised F1 politics for much of the past four decades. A new mood of unity prevailed among the various stakeholders – until now. Five grands prix – Britain, Spain, Germany, Mexico and Italy - face an uncertain future because their contracts end this year, but they are not the only events that are fighting for commercial survival. The Formula One Promoters’ Association (FOPA), a body that represents the majority of race venues, went on the attack against Liberty Media by issuing a strongly worded statement in which they underlined their frustrations with the way the sport is run. FOPA laid out three clear issues they wish to see resolved as…
