Now you're acting a bit deluded. Do you know how business works or are you so blinded by your quite frankly immature ideas about censorship?
Autosport was created to report on motorsport, not to be some journalistic beacon of hard-hitting stories. To report on F1 which is literally a few hundred people, you need close relationships with everyone. you don't get that relationship by printing articles that appear to contain untruths which the case which is being specified seems to prove.
No it doesnt, just in your eyes because a mclaren director said Vettel made the difference. Who should I follow, his opinion, or yours? For the record: Mclaren nor Autosport have said what exactly was so bad about this article that it needed pulling.
As of now, there is nothing on the McLaren which is obviously questionable. Why do you think Autosport would jeopardise it's relationship with the UK's most successful and supported F1 team with a pretty poor article
Again you mix your opinion with some open facts. Only you, and a few disgruntled Vettel haters and Mclaren fans thought it was a 'poor' article.
Autosport doesn't pretend to be the authority on motorsport journalism, it has been given that mantle by the market. They've bestowed Autosport that title with the amount of magazines it sells over everyone else. The market has elevated Autosport into it's position of strength the complete opposite of the communist nonsense you talk about.
Freedom of the press is about organisations choosing not to publish stuff they don't like as much as it is the opposite. You have some skewed idea of freedom which appears as "publish everything you can. whether it's verified or valid doesn't matter."
Autosport loves to sell themselves as a serious, premium content, with inside info printing magazine. Now the tag, but only if its aproved by Mclaren censorship board, is added.
I can understand not everything is printed, and they need to maintain some kind of relationship. But a small, mild article, an interview with a high ranking Mclaren official being pulled is just way over the top and very embarrassing for their business model. Well, maybe not in your eyes because you are startiung to get red mist and invent words the article never stated, like parts being shown on the launch day, or Vettels god-like abilities.
