I do buy F1 Racing, Autosport and Motorsport. And I enjoy all three of them.
Each of them service different parts of motor racing.
Personally I do not care what Mosely does in his private life. I am not interested in that. I have known who Max is for over 3 decades, since I was a kid, and he contributed as has Bernie, a lot to the sport providing drivers with the means to compete and a great deal of pleasure and happiness for me.
I remember that Max was part of the wonderful M[mosely]ARCH team who not only were championship winners but also provided drivers such as Lauda, Peterson, the "Monza Gorilla" Vittorio Brambilla and Lella Lombardi with cars amongst many others. Just that they were responsible for hiring the 37 year old "Brambles" makes it all worthwhile for me.
Max was also always really the brightest on the grid. Just ask Bernie - any rule question and Max almost knew it without looking it up and he was correct.
So for those who have no idea who Max is, other than the FIA position he holds and manages well, I say, do not condemn a man who has contributed a great deal to the sport we all love and admire, but focus rather on his body of work and effort. It does count for everything.
I do not want ANY magazines about the sport to weigh in on silly scandals.
I think that F1 Racing has improved, especially artwork wise since Bishop left. Those idiotic out of focus photos of racing cars have no business to be in a good racing magazine and belong in one of those phoney art galleries in Chelsea NYC.
The one thing I would change in all magazines is the front cover. They all resemble tabloids. Why not have a chosen, proper, color picture of a racing car during a grand prix for example each time? Both Autosport and Motorsport used to be that way years ago.
And while Peter Windsor's adoration of Hamilton is irksome because it is pathetic - similar to that which is now underway over Obama in the US by the leftists [is it coincidence that they are both considered black people?] - his writing in the magazine is definitely better, or so itseems, since Bishop [could never stand him] left.

Theoretically it is correct what he said, and of course I suspect Walker has joined the besotted view that the Brits have of Hamilton - no small measure because of white guilt and that Lewis is termed a "black driver" Nothing like bit of political correctness....
Of course Massa is only a Brazilian and Hamilton is a colored Briton who has become part of the travelling celebrity show, how politically correct and "wonderful" for f1. A "black" world champion instead of the best driveer bing the world champion.
I placed this poll because I cannot take any longer, since HAM started in f1, Windsors' comments that fawn over "Daddy Hamilton" and his wimpy son in the pre-race show and comments during a race and after. Wimpy because he whimped of his fitness challenge to Jenson Button - daddy was asked to make the withdrawal.
I am not at all a HAM supporter and will never be. But to consider that KOV is even ABLE to race HAM is a big leap.
The only reason anyone other than ALO will win the drivers title is if the Renault has problems - yes ALO is that much a superior driver to the rest and truly it is a pity.
Hamilton did not win the most races, has scored fewer second places than Massa and showed just how out of his depth he is when under pressure, and Massa equalled his pole position score.
This is the world champion? When a driver from another team suddenly has to pull over without a fight and give it to you?
I do not think so.
Hamilton may be called 2008 world champion officially, but he knows who the true champion is as does everyone this year, and his name is Felipe Massa.
What a pity.
The greatest "gift" that dear wobbly Lewis had was that Alonso did not have the Renault he had during the last quarter of the season from the start in Adelaide.
Furthermore, Hamilton almost lost the title in Brazil because he drove like a midfield driver and DOES have a glass jaw when it comes to having to defend under pressure.
Hamilton is not the issue over the points, it is that the driver that peformed the best in 2008 did not win the title and his name is Massa.
It is high time that this problem is solved. Surely somewhere there is a math genius able to calculate a formula that will generate a champion that has actually performed the best that year.............."
Difficult to take some people seriously OR consider their opinions relevant when all the spew about is hate for driver they have only seen on TV.
