100 things that made F1 great

As Formula One fights to restore its credibility and rediscover its core values, we take a (not always) light-hearted look over the stuff that we miss most from the (not always) 'good old days' of F1. Some of our selections are fundamental, some may seem frivolous, but all of them are heartfelt and so, in no particular order... Monza without chicanes It was crazy and more than a little dangerous...

Matters of moment

Given all the fuss about Rolls-Royce and Bentley right now, you'd be forgiven for not noticing that automotive GBH is already being committed on the name of one of our most proud and innovative marques.

49 facts

Sir, As the author of Lotus 49: The Story of a Legend, to be published this September, could I point out a couple of inaccuracies in your July piece on the Rob Walker Lotus 49?
