Motor Sport on F1 Opinion

While our late founder editor Bill Boddy was  working at the Royal Aircraft Establishment he met Denis Jenkinson, and, impressed by his knowledge and no-nonsense attitude, asked him to write for Motor Sport. It proved a memorable partnership. Jenks became our continental correspondent, roaming Europe all summer, visiting race teams in between Grands Prix and sending back lively, incisive reports which became the definitive analysis of the sport. Our editor-in-chief Nigel Roebuck continues to provide that same incisive opinion on Formula 1 today.
