  • Track Worker Killed at Formula One Grand Prix in Montreal (Video)

    Track Worker Killed at Formula One Grand Prix in Montreal (Video)

    Everyone knows that auto racing is one of the most dangerous sports in the world, but it’s usually the drivers and fans we think of as being most vulnerable. Unfortunately, on Sunday we were all given a reminder that grave danger lurks pretty much everywhere in professional auto racing—even behind the scenes. At Formula One’s […]

  • Mr. Bean Reacts To A Formula One Crash (Video)

    Mr. Bean Reacts To A Formula One Crash (Video)

    Judging by the above image and the video below, it seems fair to assume that Rowan Atkinson is a fan of either Ferrari or McLaren Mercedes. The man known for his work as Mr. Bean gave us a very Mr. Bean-like reaction after watching McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton crash into the side of Ferrari’s Felipe Massa […]

  • Go On-Board With A Formula One Car (Video)

    Go On-Board With A Formula One Car (Video)

    Apparently, this is the first ever eye-level camera on a Formula One car, giving us an idea of what it is like to race around a track at speeds of well over 200 km/h before diving into a hairpin turn. The track is in Barcelona and the driver of the car is Lucas di Grassi, […]

    Fan Gets Hit By Sebastien Buemi’s F1 Race Car (Video)

    Hurdling over stationary hurdles may be difficult and dangerous enough for some, but not for this daring Japanese boy, who decided it would be a good idea to try hurdling over Sebastien Buemi’s Formula 1 race car as it cruised down a track at approximately 20 mph during a Red Bull F1 Exhibition in Japan. […]

    The 9 Worst Formula 1 Crash Videos

    Ahh, motorsports. Rarely do we find ourselves so often rooting for misfortune, then feeling like horrible, horrible people when it happens. Well, I’m here to eliminate the middleman. These crashes have already taken place, so you don’t need to hope for them, which means you don’t need to feel bad about them when you watch […]

    Russian PM Vladimir Putin Takes On F1 Racing (Video)

    Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has developed an image of himself that involves a life of action and adventure.  He has been pictured in the past shooting whales with a crossbow, piloting a fire fighting plane, and demonstrating his judo skills to the Japanese officials within the popular Kodokan Institute. Now he has decided to […]

    Hispania Pit Crew Member Struck By Sakon Yamamoto’s Car (Video)

    Being present in pit row during an automobile race can be dangerous.  We have  witnessed the dangers that come with such a job before, and we were reminded of it once again this weekend. During the Formula One Italian Grand Prix over the weekend, the radio engineer for Team Hispania was hit by the back […]

  • Mark Webber’s Car Goes Airborne At European Grand Prix

    Mark Webber’s Car Goes Airborne At European Grand Prix

    Right from the get-go it was easy to see that yesterday was not Mark Webber’s day.  Despite beginning the race on the front row of the grid, alongside teammate Sebastian Vettel (who would eventually win the race), he would quickly drop to ninth and things would only get worse from there. Following an early pit […]

  • F1 Car Takes A Ride On The White Sands Of The Dominican

    F1 Car Takes A Ride On The White Sands Of The Dominican

    Here is an idea.  Why not stage one Formula One race each year on the beautiful white sands of the Dominican Republic?  Think of the possibilities!  More cars will spin out of control, the sexy female spectators will don their sexy little bikinis, and the donuts performed by the champion at the end of the […]

  • F1 Car Loses Both Front Tires (Video)

    F1 Car Loses Both Front Tires (Video)

    It is not the scariest thing we have seen occur on a race track before, but when both tires exploded off the Toro Rosso car of F1 driver Sebastien Buemi, it was still quite the unusual scene.  Losing one tire is crazy enough, but when both simultaneously abandon your car as it screams down a […]

    Kimi Raikkonen’s Ferrari Set On Fire In Pit Row

    Total Pro Sports – In the world of motor sports, the dangers do not lie solely on the race track, but there are also plenty of risks present within pit row.  That was the case during the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix on Sunday. Ferrari have endured a disappointing campaign in 2009, and with only […]

  • The Making Of The F1 Bread Car…..With Bread!

    The Making Of The F1 Bread Car…..With Bread!

    Total Pro Sports – Much like the “Sunbird” lobster-racing boat, it is made for looks rather than for speed, but this F1 bread car sure does look tasty. It order to make this masterpiece, which is currently sitting in a hotel lobby in Singapore (unless someone has eaten it by now), the Royal Plaza on […]
