On the eve of the new season a number of new F1 sites have sprung up including F1 Pitlane and GP Week. Here’s a quick look at them.
F1 Pitlane is an ambitious new site with a number of contributors from top F1 blogs F1 Insight, Sidepodcast and La Canta Magnifico. I’m also doing the odd piece, the first of which should be up on Wednesday 12th.
GP Week covers F1, Moto GP and others. I’m not a fan of the ‘virtual magazine’ format – it was something I dabbled with when I started F1 Fanatic and quickly dropped it. But the quality of the writing shines through beyond the design which looks disconcertingly similar to British lads mag Nuts.
It’s not brand new as it arrived during last season, but I’d be interested to hear what you think of it and whether anyone subscribes to it. GrandPrix+ is published by former Autosport scribe Joe Saward, who also writes GrandPrix.com. It’s subscription only at a cost of £25. The photography is particularly high quality and the magazine won the Guild of Motoring Writers Newspress New Media Award last year.
