Top Dogs: Who Will Win The F1 Fights This Year?

Part 1

“Rivalries in sport are awesome.”

That’s Mark Webber speaking, and he should know: he was involved in one of the most intense rivalries we have seen for the last few years during his great Formula 1 career at Red Bull.

Webber was looking back at the Prost v Senna days when McLaren’s ‘Dream Team’ turned nightmarish and the two great drivers lost their focus because all they could see was each other.

Pressure Off Ricciardo: Coulthard

Australian Red Bull rookie Daniel Ricciardo will be under little pressure this season despite driving alongside four-times Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel, according to former team racer David Coulthard.

Coulthard says Ricciardo, who moved from the uncompetitive sister Toro Rosso team at the end of last year to replace Mark Webber, is in an ideal position ahead of next month's Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

“He’s had a great rise up to the point of driving for the world championship-winning team," Coulthard said.

Lowndes announced as V8 Ambassador at Grand Prix

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation today announced that Australian motorsport legend Craig Lowndes will be the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix V8 Ambassador.

The five-time Bathurst 1000 champion is the most recognisable V8 Supercars driver in the country and as part of his role he will attend official functions as well as build excitement among fans in the lead-up to and during the event.

Lowndes, who will compete in the 2014 V8 Supercars Championship for Red Bull Racing Australia was excited by the appointment.

Australian Grand Prix to feel the G-force

Georgia Geminder has today been announced as the Official Ambassador of the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Recently named in the Herald Sun’s annual New Year’s Day ‘Who to watch...’ feature, and with an overseas move imminent to take on the US modelling market, the flame-haired beauty is set to make her mark in 2014.

Geminder is no stranger to the spotlight coming from a family which is one of the largest private sources of philanthropy in Australia – her grandfather being prominent Melbourne businessman, the late Richard Pratt.

Formula One In Full Flight

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation is delighted to announce luxury watch brand Rolex has re-signed as the Title Sponsor of the 2014 Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix at Albert Park, 13-16 March.

A helicopter flight over the Albert Park Lake involving a Red Bull Racing car dramatically suspended from its undercarriage celebrated the exciting extension of Rolex’s global partnership with Formula One® and world motorsport’s imminent arrival in Melbourne.

It'll Be All Right On The Night...

Theatre people have a saying: “Bad rehearsal, good performance”, which is largely used to reassure themselves when things haven’t been going that well.

A number of Formula 1 teams will be echoing that sentiment after an intriguing first four days of testing at Jerez in south-western Spain last week.

And if you are NOT a Infiniti Red Bull Racing fan you will be telling yourself that the stars of the F1 cast may be the ones who have been fluffing their lines most consistently and damagingly of all in the last few days.
