Strategies for a Formula One drivers’ competition were consulted in the late 1930s although were put on hold with the commencement of World War Two. In 1946 the thought was regenerated and in that season the primary races were carried out and the next year the resolution was made to start on drivers’ contest.

Leave the Racing to the Racers

Posted by admin October - 15 - 2012 Comments Off

I’ve spent weeks on this blog talking about the formula one racing scene, but a concerned reader asked me to do a write-up on safe driving so here we are.

The race scene is a competition and, as such, there are lots of little occupational hazards that can lead to some serious injuries. The same is not true when it comes to your everyday driving and while some people might behave like it’s a race, you should not.

There are lots of obvious perks to safe driving – your life being one of them.

Another perk that a lot of people don’t think about is money. It’s quite expensive when you get into an accident and careless driving can really jack up the insurance rates. Car insurance from AutoInsuranceRater.com and other providers can fluctuate depending on how safe of a driver you are. That’s as far as rates and premiums are concerned.

Getting behind the wheel on a race track is one thing, but if you’re going to get behind the wheel of your everyday car, you must drive safely.

Observe the speed limit and give people around you plenty of space – even if someone is being a lousy driver and tailing you or cutting you off. If you drive safe, you could save both when it comes to your life and your money.

Michael Schumacher Ties Prost’s Four Time Formula One Championship Wins

Posted by www.formulauk.com June - 15 - 2012 Comments Off

There have been plenty of great Formula One drivers over the past few years. Jack Stewart, Damon Hill, Ayrton Senna, Gilles Villeneuve, Jacques Villeneuve, and Mika Hakkonen are just a few examples of great drivers. However, through a combination of tragedy and declining performance, these drivers never managed to get close to the records that the likes of Alain Prost and Juan Manuel Fangio have held in Formula One. That was until the great Michael Schumacher came into the picture.This/tag helps explain it more.

Schumacher won his first two Formula One titles with Benetton. The team was spearheaded by Flavio Briatore at the time, and the two made a great combination. However, within a couple of years the lure of Ferrari was too much to resist. From the moment they came calling, Schumacher knew where his destiny lay. However, things did not go according to plan there. A few barren years were made worse when Schumacher broke his leg at Silverstone, ruling him out for almost the entire season.

Great champions do not give up and that is exactly what Schumacher did. He rose to the challenge and eventually got Ferrari back to the top of the sport. He won his 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th Formula One titles with Scuderia Ferrari. In the process he overtook Ayrton Senna’s race wins record and Alain Prost’s record of Four titles. He also passed Fangio’s record of six titles. While plenty of great drivers will follow Schumacher, none may ever match or better his record.
