Explainer: Mark Webber hitches a ride, gets ten-place grid penalty

changagoidem Features | Explainer: Mark Webber hitches a ride, gets ten-place grid penalty

It is a sad indictment of the 2013 Singapore F1 Grand Prix when the two most talked about events happened post-race. While we cannot explain exactly why the crowd felt the need to boo race victor and multiple champion Sebastian Vettel we can go some way to explain the curious incident of Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso's post-race reprimands. 

For those who missed it, Red Bull driver Webber retired on the final lap of the Singapore Grand Prix after his RB9 race automobile ran out of water and the engine set alight. After watching the action from the safety of…

Chrysler's IPO could lead to divorce!

changagoidem Features | Chrysler's IPO could lead to divorce!

Normally, Initial Public Offerings (IPO), the point where a company decides to list and sell its shares on a stock exchange, is a time for celebration, pageantry and probably confetti. Not this one. The announcement of an intention to sell Chrysler shares to the public and investors has brought with it rancour, dispute and recriminations from the very company which already owns a majority stake in Chrysler; Fiat.

Fiat owns 58.5 per cent of the American giant, a stake which it bought, and subsequently expanded, after Chrysler slipped into bankruptcy and a bail-out from the US government in 2009. Fiat…

Monday Sept 16

Usually my Mondays are a little on the hectic side as it's the day that we all swap over our test automobiles, but thankfully the A3 Saloon that I was driving was collected late last night as it was needed for its official press launch scheduled for today. That left me with the Renault Twizy, which I have to admit I have become completely smitten with despite all of its practical failings.

I'm bringing along my good friend and fellow hack Davey G. Johnson who is visiting Ireland this week following the…

Saturday Sep 14 & Sunday Sep 15

When does one working week start and another begin? For me this week began on Saturday morning as I decamped to Mondello Park for the curtain closing Leinster Trophy weekend. No I was not competing (Shane is the only one around here with a race licence); instead I was covering the event for Autosport magazine in the UK.

It was streamed live on Mondello.tv with the production suite based just over my shoulder, giving me great insight into the demands on the director and camera crew. Sometimes the events unfolding behind me were…

Film review: Rush

changagoidem Features | Film review: Rush

No, not the village in north County Dublin, but the new film from director Ron Howard and writer Peter Morgan, which chronicles the rivalry between seventies F1 superstars James Hunt and Niki Lauda. Although it dips further back into the past, it's largely concerned with the incidents and tales of the 1976 Formula One season in which both men fought it out for title, right down to the final round.

And, just as Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy isn't about spying (it's about betrayal and age) and Jaws isn't about a shark (it's about facing your fears) so Rush isn't…

Monday Sep 16

I don't feel I've quite recovered from the long days that surrounded last week's Frankfurt Motor Show, but it's time to dig out the passport again and board a 7am flight back to the same city. This time it's for the international launch of the new Opel Insignia, which only made its world debut at the show last week.

Actually, I'm cheating a little bit, as I'm joining the UK group (aka 'Vauxhall') on their rotation. The Irish media won't be here for another couple of weeks and our Dave will be there to get the full…
