F1 in the news 53: Stepney speaks out

A stack of stories in the news this week and, no, they’re not all about Lewis Hamilton. Nigel Stepney has spoken out about his role in the espionage scandal, Jacques Villeneuve is causing ructions in the States, and Jenson Button is either encouraging or slating Honda, depending on who you believe.

The Ben Evans column: Better DVDs, please

I missed Sunday’s Japanese Grand Prix because I like to sleep in the tiny hours of the morning. Unfortunately my girlfriend then dragged me out of the house for a country walk and so I missed the repeat as well… As a result my motor sport viewing on Sunday was reduced to a quick spin […]

Ten worst… F1 tracks

The Shanghai International Circuit is next – and it’s my least favourite track on the calendar. Yes, most people hate the Hungaroring and I can see why – it’s narrow, tight, slow and produces terrible races. But Shanghai annoys me because it’s a missed opportunity. With the amount of money they spent they could have […]

Championship arithmetic

What does Lewis Hamilton have to do to win the championship this weekend? And what do Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen have to do to stop him? And not for the first time it seems the whole thing would be more interesting if they just got rid of championship points.

Chinese GP 2007 preview & TV times

The championship battle could be decided this weekend at Shanghai and Fernando Alonso simply must beat Lewis Hamilton to stay in the hunt. Meanwhile Kimi Raikkonen will be hoping that the pair finally do what they’ve looked like doing all year and take each other off. And if that wasn’t dramatic enough, a storm is […]
