So it’s April Fool’s Day today and this usually leads to a few bogus joke stories appearing around the Internet. Google have started the ball rolling with their 8-bit Quest Maps, but I thought I’d start a topic where we can post any F1-related stories that are probably April Fool’s jokes (either from today or previous years).
I’ve dug up a few from 2008 to get us started:
F1 to make massive safety commitment (Crash.net)
Michael Schumacher In, Massa Out For Formula One’s Bahrain Grand Prix (paddocktalk.com)
Peter Sauber to replace Mosley as FIA president
And there was also this from Crash.net last year:
EXPOSED: The secret to Red Bull F1 dominance
