Modern times

Simon Taylor Things are looking up for Formula One. After last year's worries about falling TV ratings and dwindling column inches, we've had two stories that were heaven-sent for the tabloids, and just right for getting the Sunday afternoon couch potatoes to switch over from the Eastenders omnibus. First, the world champion's car bursts into flames during a refuelling stop. Our superhero sees...
