Just what does David Richard have lined up for Prodrive? He is supposed to be giving some details of his plans at the British Grand Prix in two weekends’ time. Richards hit the news earlier this year by fronting a consortium that purchased Aston Martin from Ford. But there’s been little news of his putative […]
Formula1.com has had a lick of paint and looks all shiny and new. But before you get all excited, no, they still aren’t offering any video. But I’m sure they’ll keep on tearing F1 videos down from other sites with the monotonous regularity of Ralf Schumacher’s contract extensions. The ‘social media’ revolution appears to have […]
Antonio Pizzonia has been dropped by Fisichella Motor Sport as had been widely predicted.

Colin Turkington held Fabrizio Giovanardi back by a tiny margin to win the second race at Oulton Park. The Honda crossed the line 0.046s ahead of Giovanardi’s Vauxhall. The track was wet for the second race and Oldhall corner produced its usual chaos. Dave Pinkney, Jason Hughes and Erkut Kizilirmak all collided on the first […]
Fabrizio Giovanardi moved into the lead of the championship by finishing second behind Gordon Shedden. Shedden took his first win of 2007 and the second for Team Halfords’ new Honda Civic.
