http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_yfiE9Esfg&t=25s Words just don’t do justice to how fortunate Stephane Ortelli was to survive this crash in the Le Mans Series race at Monza today. And the same goes for Allan McNish whose Audi R10 was missed by the flying ORECA Courage by mere centimetres. Ortelli lost control of his car on approach to the […]
Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa’s winning margin of 0.9s over Lewis Hamilton suggests the Spanish Grand Prix was a close run thing. It was anything but.

The long run to the first corner in tomorrow’s Spanish Grand Prix will be as crucial as ever as overtaking at the Circuit de Catalunya is difficult. Fernando Alonso appears on the front row as something of an interloper this year – last year he clashed with Felipe Massa at the first corner. Might we […]
