Romain Grosjean wins GP2 Asia title

Romain Grosjean didn’t finish the GP2 Asia race at Bahrain this morning but by setting fastest lap he did enough to guarantee the title. From eighth on the grid Grosjean was in the lead by the end of the first lap and streaking away. But brake failure ended his hopes of victory in the second […]

Mosley hit by further sex allegations

The News of the World has published a stack of fresh allegations against Max Mosley this morning. The newspaper is clearly not concerned about Mosley’s declaration that he will sue them. In a “tell-all” interview with one of the prostitutes (a typical tabloid tactic) it specifically targets Mosley’s defence that his now infamous bondage session […]

2008 Bahrain GP qualifying: Insert Pole-on-pole joke here

The one-hour, 12 lap, sessions used to be cracking TV and a rare opportunity to see what the teams and drivers could conjure up when they focussed their efforts on a single banzai lap. Problem was […]

Bahrain snub piles pressure on Mosley

As a few people have mentioned in the comments the Crown Prince of Bahrain has told Max Mosley not to attend this weekend’s Grand Prix following his refusal to step down over the sex scandal. (Oddball posted the letter here). I think it’s further proof of what I wrote two days ago, that Mosley cannot […]
