Schuey guns for eighth tittle

Getting the Breaks

The French GP was about getting the breaks, be they of the lucky or commercial variety, as Mark Skewis explains Had the French Grand Prix been televised by ITV, as will be the case next year, it would have been tempting to have made the tea during the race and sat down to watch the adverts! It was not a classic race by any stretch of the imagination. But it/s likely to prove a significant one,...

Radio GaGa

Radio GaGa Sir, Regarding DSJ's recent article on the Honda and Ferrari teams curious misfires possibly due to radio wave effects on the management systems, I submit that the Phoenix scenario is closest to the most likely culprit.
