This month on the Motor Sport website

Forum Focus Within a few minutes of posting the Hungarian GP report online, the comments flowed in. A few lauded Mark Webber for his drive, and a few praised Vitaly Petrov for out-qualifying team-mate Robert Kubica for the first time. But the majority focused on the driving of a certain M Schumacher and his move on Rubens Barrichello. “Schumacher is back to his old self,” said Paal Hanson. “He...

Alonso expected to stay at Renault

The final gaps in the 2009 F1 entry list will be plugged when Fernando Alonso finally confirms his plans after the Brazilian Grand Prix.

Crash & learn

When creating a modern F1 car, designers major as much on safety as speed. Robert Kubica is one who’s thankful they do... By Rob Widdows Grand prix racing will never be utterly safe.
