Motor Sport on Formula 1

Motor Sport was reporting on Grand Prix (F1) racing long before the World Championship started in 1950. It soon became the place to catch up on all the racing in Britain, Europe and even as far afield as Australia and America thanks to the work of our late Continental Correspondent Denis Jenkinson and our late Founder Editor Bill Boddy. Today it continues to be the authoritative voice on the sport with Editor-in-Chief Nigel Roebuck and Editor Damien Smith continuing in the footsteps of DSJ and WB.
