Matters of moment

One mishap too many Elsewhere in this issue, you can read of the myriad trials and tribulations that have soured Benetton's month, and there's little doubt that there are many who have little sympathy for the Enstone team. The black flag at Silverstone; the launch control controversy that arose at Hockenheim: the allegations of tampering with refuelling equipment that emerged in the wake of the...

The Motor Sport Month - Formula 1 News

Todt defends engine choiceJean Todt is standing by the controversial 2013 F1 turbo rules, despite opposition from Bernie Ecclestone and most of the teams. Ecclestone has said that the new four-cylinder engines won't sound impressive enough, while the teams are concerned about a cost escalation, and in Ferrari's case claim that the engine does not project the right image for F1.

Benetton in the dock

Modern times

Great Britain, Austria, German: three Grands Prix in four weekends. Not to mention a three-day Monza test, the first confirmations of 1999's driver signings, and FIA hearings in Paris.
