The safety package introduced into Formula 1 back in 2018 paid dividends for Romain Grosjean in the Bahrain Grand Prix. Anything else would have amounted to his death for sure. The Halo saved his life and goes to show that Formula 1 drivers are highly skilled and yet depend on
Whether you want to compare drivers, cars, or time, there’s no doubt that Lewis Hamilton is one of histories great Formula 1 drivers. Starting from 6th after qualifying, Hamilton was patient, drove to the conditions, had a bit of luck, but finished at the high step on the podium at
#HIS7ORY: In a season like no other, the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team secures a historic seventh consecutive double championship at Imola Even for a moment, it seemed that Valtteri Bottas would surge away and take the race. And then the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix threw up an alternative as Valtteri

What a chaotic race – 2 red flags ‘return to pit lane’ in 1 race with the winner not really determined until after the second red flag. And the damage to the Formula 1 cars that didn’t finish the race will run into millions in repairs. The 2020 Tuscan Grand
Mayhem at Monza – Gasley Wins Italian Grand Prix If you’re a follower of Formula 1, then the names Gasley, Sainz and Stroll will mean something to you. If not, then you’d be reasonable to ask what happened to Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen, Vettel and the rest Well the simple answer
Dear Lewis. Re: 2020 Belgian Grand Prix. First of all, I’d like to sincerely congratulate you on the flag to flag victory in the Belgian Grand Prix this last Sunday. It seems that you managed to qualify very well and deserved pole position without question. But I was curious to
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team claims a double podium as Lewis takes victory at the 2020 Spanish Grand Prix Does it get almost boring watching the Silver Arrows team dominate the 2020 Formula 1 season? As a fan of the team and more particularly Lewis Hamilton, it doesn’t, but it
I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
