Weigl Group is latest Super Aguri saviour

This sounds a bit familiar: A new group has launched a rescue bid for the Super Aguri team, who were only able to contest last weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix thanks to an 11th-hour rescue package from Honda.

The richest men in motor racing

I’ve just had a look through the Sunday Times’ annual list of the 1,000 richest people in Britain to see who they reckon the richest Britons in motor racing are. Here are the ones I was able to find – do let me know if you think I’ve missed any. No prizes for guessing who […]

Jenson Button: the driver debates

The subject of this week’s driver debate is Jenson Button, whose career has had more ups and downs than a malfunctioning elevator. How do you rate Jenson Button – and will he ever win another race?

Inevitable Max Mosley post #11

I wanted to ignore the inevitable Max Mosley stuff over the Spanish Grand Prix weekend and concentrate on the racing (at least, what little there was that passed for racing).

Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa’s winning margin of 0.9s over Lewis Hamilton suggests the Spanish Grand Prix was a close run thing. It was anything but.

Bad safety car rules catch out Heidfeld

The BMW driver was leading when the safety car came out following Heikki Kovalainen’s crash, and even though he had two laps of fuel to spare he was forced to pit while the pit lane was closed, meaning he incurred an unavoidable penalty.
