Twenty-five years ago I began watching Formula One and 2016 also marks the 20th anniversary of my childhood hero Damon Hill winning the world title. I will always be a fan of F1 but even though my current favourite driver, Lewis Hamilton, is dominating the sport I find myself waning in interest of the only sport I truly follow with a passion...
It has been an incredible journey with many ups and downs. I feel privileged to have turned my passion into my profession... My gut feeling tells me it is time to move on. Time to explore new challenges and push myself in new environments. As a sportsperson it is always difficult to know when to stop but for me, this journey has come to an end.
The sport is governed by technical regulations which try to keep some form of parity between constructors who enter the sport. The problem is that with such small differences in technical and mechanical advancement, it costs many hundreds of million pounds to find that extra half-a-second of performance.
Some people say he should be given more respect due to his achievements, and some people enjoy the fact that he wears his heart on his sleeve - driving flamboyantly when needed, celebrating enthusiastically, and being equally as demonstrable when he's unhappy.
New Ferrari test driver Jean-Eric Vergne has targeted a drive with Ferrari in 2016 which when you get to the nitty-gritty means he wants Kimi Raikkone...
Time will tell if Jenson can take it to Alonso, the best driver ever in the modern era in my opinion. I think Jenson might find himself having a tough year, being constantly beat by someone who is much better than him.
F1 2014 is the fifth Codemasters game in the Formula One franchise to be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles, and likely to be their last appearance ahead of F1 2015 on PS4 and Xbox One around May next year.
I'm sitting in Moscow airport, getting ready to jet off to another GP3 race. However, this trip feels slightly different. The whole motorsport community, including myself, is dealing with the aftermath and emotion of the Jules Bianchi crash.
I started racing when I was seven years old and it doesn't matter how many people ask me, I don't really know what got me hooked. Now, I'm living in London, racing in the GP3 series - a Formula 1 support series - and I'm chasing the dream that only a handful of people ever get to fulfill.
Max Verstappen is certainly a name to watch... he will become the youngest driver in Formula One history... the achievement of Verstappen and others becomes a triumph of relativity, a story of ability overcoming experience, of talent trumping practice, of nature defeating nurture.
Today the Renault Sport engine is still highly advanced, with a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 featuring a pair of powerful energy recuperation systems that feed twin electric motors... The aim is to deliver the same power as the 2013 V8 engine delivered using a V6 turbo and twin electric motors (which also uses 40 percent less fuel).
Launched today at the Goodwood Motor Circuit, last years' concept car got the 'What if?' treatment and a limited edition of just 250 cars will be brought into production in the early Spring ready for sale in the Summer of 2015.
With the Formula One season in full flow, you could be forgiven for thinking that my life at the moment is focused on non-stop training, qualifying and racing. It's often difficult to find time for anything else, but earlier this month I was able to visit Haiti with Unicef, the world's leading children's organisation, to make an appeal film for this year's Soccer Aid, which returns for the fifth time on Sunday 8 June.... No child, no matter where they live in the world should go hungry or lose their life because they or their family don't have enough to eat. That's why I'm asking everyone to tune in on June 8 and give what they can.
Mirrors and compartments are something I searched for. Do men really not look at themselves, or keep items close at hand, the cabin was quite bare and I remembered I was in a utility vehicle. Is a mirror a woman thing?
The overarching theme of this blog is to show that better use of the skills and creativity of the UK advertising and communications sector would benefit society as a whole as well as business... But even I admit that, with all the creativity in the world, none of us could stop the floods which have dominated our media landscape.
Not only have we - come on, admit it - enjoyed The Great F1 Shake-Up after Red Bull's disastrous test at Jerez, but events elsewhere have got petrol heads champing at the bit for the season to really get going - and it's still only February. If all falls into place, we could potentially be in for one of those classic years.
