Schumacher: anatomically correct?

We’ve all seen quite enough of Max Mosley’s anatomy, so here’s Michael Schumacher’s.

Giancarlo Fisichella: the driver debates

In the first driver debate we looked at Adrian Sutil. Today it’s the turn of his vastly more experienced team-mate Giancarlo Fisichella. The 35 year-old Italian will be present at his 200th Grand Prix in Spain in two weeks’ time. How do you rate his career?

Dominoes

Herbert takes Speedcar win as Johansson and Frentzen clash

Sky drop live Indy Car for NASCAR

Turned on Sky Sports looking forward to watching the second race of the re-unified Indy Car series… and found they’re showing NASCAR instead. It’s a disappointing choice because I expect the more F1-like Indy Car to be a lot more comprehensible to British fans and therefore more popular. I’m certainly not interested in watching NASCAR […]
