Battle lines are drawn on Mosley vote

A series of letters and new revelations in the past 24 hours has shed light on the state of play ahead of the FIA’s confidence vote on June 3rd. Here’s a brief recap on the latest developments.

Ayrton Senna vs Michael Schumacher

Last week I asked for your suggestions for F1 Fanatic articles. And coming out on top with almost 100 votes was this topic from Tom Bellingham… It could have been one of Formula 1′s greatest rivalries. Instead, while Michael Schumacher romped to race wins and world championships in the mid-1990s everyone wondered how it might […]

New stuff: Top 100 and past polls

It’s been an extraordinarily start to the season on F1 Fanatic. Just a few months ago I marked the 10,000th comment on the site – yesterday we passed the 15,000 mark*. There’s already a list of the top 10 posts with the most comments on the front of the site (look up to the top […]

Not enough seats to go round

Super Aguri are gone and the F1 field has shrunk down to 20 cars, increasing the competition for any seats that might become available. That’s bad news for some of the promising drivers squeezed out of the sport who might have hoped to get back in – to say nothing of Takuma Sato and Anthony […]

Mosley rejected compromise deal in April

Details of an attempt by FIA members to reach a deal with scandal-hit president Max Mosley emerged tonight.

However new rumours have emerged linking Berger with Mosley’s job. So […]

The three Kimi Raikkonens

On his day, Kimi Raikkonen is untouchable. Blisteringly quick over a single lap, relentlessly consistent over a stint, irrepressibly smart when it comes to the cut and thrust of wheel-to-wheel racing. And then he turns up at the 2008 Monaco Grand Prix and puts in the kind of performance that makes you wonder whether Nelson […]

Shakespeare, Warhol and Max Mosley

F1 Fanatic reader Stephen Snook has contributed this highly thought-provoking essay on morality and the Max Mosley debate. Without Dante there would be no Italian; without Luther there would be no German; without Shakespeare, there would be no English. If this is an over simplification, then it is certainly true to say that modern Italian, […]
