F1 blogs review: South African stars

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

It’s been way too long since I last did a round-up of what’s been keeping me entertained on the F1 blogs.

Here are some of the highlights from this week:

Formula One’s South African secret – In a typically original post, Clive looks at the South African designers who created some of F1’s best cars – Gordon Murray and Rory Byrne.

Can Formula 1 be ethical? – Vee8 grapples with big questions.

I am Kathleen and a future danger to motor sports bloggers – Ominous thoughts from Alianora on how controversial debate on the web may be stifled. Here in Britain the Gina Ford lawsuit against Mumsnet has showed the discussion on the web might not be as free as we’d all like.

Video: Jon Lancaster in huge F3 Euro crash – From my other blog, a massive crash at the Hockenheimring for Formula Three racer Jon Lancaster.

Max Mosley cannot stay as president – The Telegraph’s Kevin Garside, who stuck up for Max Mosley at first, gets it now.

F1 finally goes smoke free – According to John McIlroy. Not sure about that – I’ve just looked up the name of the team who’s driver’s leading the title race and apparently they’re still called Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro…

Ferrari spying still an issue? – Ferrari’s nose leak (it sounds worse than it is) shows the team still have problems keeping their secrets to themselves.

About that hiatus… – Sidepodcast went off, got married (no, really!) and now they’re back in time for the rest of the season. Excellent news on both counts and congratulations to both of them!

Got an F1 blog I haven’t mentioned? Tell me about it. I will try and get back in the habit of doing this weekly because there’s a lot of good stuff out there.
