F1 | Gp Germany, THE POINT by Gian Carlo Minardi

German Grand Prix, Hockenheimring 25 - 28 July 2019

We saw a German grand prix full of twists and very interesting that rewarded who did not make the slightest mistake, such as Toro Rosso that celebrates an incredible third place with Kvyat to whom I extend my most sincere congratulations and Ferrari … [Continua...]

F1 | Gp Britain, THE POINT by Gian Carlo MINARDI “Leclerc extraordinary on Gasly but these tyres are an unknown factor”


Silverstone entered by rights as one of the hardest fought grands prix of the season, although unfortunately there are still too many unknown factors tied to the tyres. The mixes change but not the lap times, just as we saw with the best time set by … [Continua...]

What’s happening in this Formula 1?

F1 | Gp Austria, THE POINT by Gian Carlo Minardi “Verstappen-Leclerc, the rivals of the future”

F1 | Vettel-Hamilton, MINARDI “The decision was too hasty”


Five days from the Canadian grand prix the penalty the marshals gave Vettel that gave Lewis Hamilton the win is still a hot theme. The marshals followed what the regulations say, but I am still of the idea that in that predicament Vettel could not … [Continua...]

F1 | GP Canada, THE POINT by Gian Carlo Minardi “These penalties are killing motorsport”


I do not agree that a race as tight as the Canadian Gran Prix with three drivers within a bare 6” after 70 laps should be ruined by judge’s decision. These decisions are killing Motorsport. We saw a hard fought race between two great drivers. … [Continua...]

F1 | GP Canada, MINARDI “The haemorrhage must be stemmed”


Formula 1 flew overseas and reached Canada on a track which, for its technical characteristics, should favour cars with medium-low down force, such as Ferrari. Montreal is a very demanding track with long straights and noteworthy braking where the … [Continua...]
