Debate: Is Fernando Alonso a good World Champion?

I’ve heard a lot of criticism lately of Fernando Alonso not being a good World Champion. Not that he hasn’t deserved his titles of the last two seasons, but that he doesn’t do enough as an ambassador for the sport. Alonso admits that he has no desire to be a celebrity. But many feel that, […]

IRL Kansas: Dominant Dan wins again

The Chip Ganassi team’s form is ominous for their rivals ahead of next month’s Indianapolis 500. Dan Wheldon dominated the Kansas 300 and Scott Dixon would surely have made it a Ganassi one-two but for a careless pit lane infraction. Hacing started fourth Wheldon immediately made his way to the front. He sliced past both […]

“Ken Tyrrell: The Authorised Biography” (Maurice Hamilton, 2002)

Should teams be allowed to buy chassis from other constructors and race them in Formula 1? It’s one of the most divisive arguments in F1 today and it’s not a new debate. Up until the early 1980s it was entirely commonplace for teams to race customer chassis. Those in support of it today maintain that […]

Hamilton “worth ???10m” – and good for TV!

Lewis Hamilton could earn up to ???10m in brand endorsements in only his first year of Formula 1. And his swashbuckling start has given British F1 TV audiences a much-needed boost. ITV has also seen a boost in its F1 TV audiences. Hamilton’s vigorous defence against Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen in the Malaysian Grand […]
