With no movement on the 2011 F1 driver market so far, it looks as though there might not be very many spaces for new drivers next year. But with a 13th team potentially being announced soon and a fresh crop of graduates from GP2 and beyond looking for a way in, we could still see […]

BBC F1 is great but motor sport coverage in Britain is getting worse 10th June 2009, 7:00

BBC F1 are doing a marvellous job in their first year back as F1’s broadcasters in Britain.

A surprise announcement from today?s FIA World Motor Sports Council today revealed the FIA wishes to set up a new feeder series to Formula 1.

The other week I wrote about lessons that F1 could learn (and forget) about NASCAR and got a big response. It got me wondering what other ideas should F1 steal from other sports? Here are a few of my suggestions. What other motor sports do you watch – and what would you like to see […]
