The Bianchi accident
Jules Bianchi was engrossed in a long-running battle with Marcus Ericsson’s Caterham at Suzuka. Both were driving exceptionally well in low-grip conditions in cars with very little downforce. Ericsson had recently made a breakthrough, a change in the Caterham’s brake-by-wire system giving him the pedal feel he’d lacked all year. Besides which, he was very much at home around...
Celebrating the career of John Surtees, a fabulous collection of cars and motorcycles took centre stage as the Autosport International Show kicked off another racing season in the halls of Birmingham’s NEC.
Unfathomably, the voluminous calls for ‘Big John’ to be knighted were once again ignored in the New Year’s Honours list at the start of the 50th anniversary year of his Ferrari...

F1 seeks new entrants
Fresh interest sought as existing teams struggle, By Adam Cooper
The FIA has laid the groundwork for new teams to enter the World Championship in 2015 by opening up a formal tender process.
The news came in the wake of plans for what the governing body calls a ‘cost cap’ to be introduced from the start of that season. A working group comprised of representatives of teams,...
It’s become something of a running joke in these parts that editor-in-chief Nigel Roebuck doesn’t ‘do’ social media, particularly since he wrote about his reservations on our website a few months ago.
Of course, by submitting that article he inadvertently made himself a talking point for a few hours, suitably enough, on Twitter. How exquisite.
Perhaps it’s just as well for Nigel to avoid the ‘...
The final gaps in the 2009 F1 entry list will be plugged when Fernando Alonso finally confirms his plans after the Brazilian Grand Prix.
The Spaniard told Motor Sport: “I know what to do 99 per cent, but after Brazil, everybody will know.” It is widely assumed he will stay at Renault rather than take up an offer from Honda, the team’s recent surge in form having tipped the balance in Flavio...
British Formula 3 is the world's oldest F3 championship. It started in 1951 and has remained one of the series you must compete in as an aspiring professional driver. One of the reasons it has been so successful for so long is that it regularly produces future Formula 1 World Champions.
Sixty years ago the series ran 500cc cars, but by 1959 it had joined forces with Formula Junior and...
* The FIA has granted Sauber an F1 entry for 2010, ending months of doubt over its future. The news came after BMW confirmed that the team had been sold back to Peter Sauber. The Swiss, who had maintained a 20 per cent shareholding, bought the remainder for a lot less than he was paid in ’05. The deal was made sweeter by the fact that the Hinwil facility has been greatly improved under BMW. As...
