The 2021 Turkish Grand Prix. What a drive by Max Verstappen. Pole position and apart from the pit stop was never headed. And such a great result for Max as he finishes his time with Mercedes AMG before heading to Alfa Romeo. Lewis must be congratulated for his 5th place
The 2021 Russian Grand Prix. It was Norris’ for the taking. His crew was begging him to come in and change to intermediaries and he said emphatically NO. Wiser heads in the Mercedes AMG Petronis team prevailed – Lewis Hamilton ignored them once, but when Bono said Lewis “Box Box”,
What a race – from the first corner at the Monza circuit, Australia’s Daniel Ricciardo took the lead and apart from his pit stop was never headed. Congratulation Dan. The 2021 Italian Grand Prix is a major Formula 1 win on your resume. Of course, there were two other highlights
Start to finish, massive Dutch crowds in a sea of orange – Max Verstappen rewarded his home country supporters with a magnificent race from pole position. Frankly, the Silver Arrows team didn’t stand a chance with pure race speed and despite efforts to undercut Verstappen and Red Bull twice, it
As dominant as Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team has been over recent years, it’s looking like its Red Bull’s turn to take the front. Max Verstappen was a class above the rest of the field, even having sufficient room to pit late in the 2021 Austrian Grand
As visually confusing as the Circuit Paul Rickard was for the French Grand Prix was, the Red Bull Ring, in Speilburg Austria is lush and visually magnificent for the 2021 Styrian Grand Prix A purpose built race track, home to the Red Bull Racing Team, the circuit may be short,
What’s the hardest Grand Prix to watch on television? Probably the 2021 French Grand Prix at the Circuit Paul Ricard. With the blue and red lines around the track destined to keep cars from hard-crashing into the barriers, (most of the time) my eyes get heavy and I have to
By winning the Portuguese Grand Prix on Sunday, Lewis Hamilton became the ‘winningest’ driver in the history of the sport. Lewis came back from losing the lead on the first lap to take the chequered flag by a comfortable margin over fellow Silver Arrows driver Valtteri Bottas. There are some

Hello and welcome to my new website thecarguy.com.au!
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.
