6 May 2008: F1: Mosley faces FIA inquiry into his conduct

A leading British barrister has been appointed by the FIA to investigate whether or not Max Mosley’s much-reported sexual exploits had Nazi connotations.

6 May 2008: F1: is Hamilton feeling the after-effects of Spygate?

Could the reason for McLaren’s relative lack of pace this season be down to the development moratorium imposed on certain aspects of the car following Spygate?

6 May 2008: F1: how not to run a fantasy league team

It’s taken us a while to make this admission. But in the interests of full disclosure we have to report that taking advantage of the transfer window has done little to boost our McLaren Grand Prix League team.

6 May 2008: F1: drivers tell what Kovalainen crash must have felt like

For most of us it’s very difficult to imagine what it must have felt like to be in Heikki Kovalainen’s McLaren when it hit the barriers at the Circuit de Catalunya at 150 miles per hour. But one or two of his F1 colleagues have been on hand to explain – and to recall being in similar crashes.

28 Apr 2008: F1: where to look for Kovalainen crash footage

Looking at our search results for yesterday and today, it’s clear that lots of people are turning up at the site because they are hunting down video of Kovalainen’s Barcelona crash.

28 Apr 2008: F1: is Ecclestone’s support for Mosley wavering?

28 Apr 2008: F1: The Red Bull takeover proceeds apace…

When Red Bull Racing made its debut in F1 back in 2005, with more front than Dolly Parton and a motorhome big and flash enough to take on McLaren’s, jaws dropped. And everything the team did, from sending David Coulthard up onto the Monaco podium dressed in a sponsors’ Superman cloak, to encouraging its principal Christian Horner to jump naked into a swimming pool to celebrate the event, reinforced the impression that the sport now had a major new player on its hands.

28 Apr 2008: F1: Walker to play Willis in film… no, wait

This story, reported by ITN, is so wonderful that we simply cannot resist posting it here. It suggests that a film is due to be made about the life of Michael Schumacher, possibly starring the great man as himself. It will, apparently, also be necessary to include a portrayal of commentary legend Murray Walker. Clearly a suitable actor must be found to play the inimitable Englishman.
