Great photos here http://plus.autospor...es-of-the-year/ but the cropping is a bit off on "The British drivers pose for a photo-call prior to the British Grand Prix." one:

"but any danger that he would have to relinquish victory to Schumacher was abated when a late safety-car period forced Ferrari to pit both drivers on the same lap."
The safety car was deployed on lap 13 - which isn't what you call "late".

<And, perhaps, the "63 DAYS, 11 HOURS, 59 MINUTES AND 54 SECONDS BEFORE THE AUSTRALIAN GP" with the appropriate Test gap?

http://www.autosport...t.php/id/112403: "The best lap time of the test set by Kevin Magnussen was eight seconds off the best ever lap time set in testing at the Spanish track by Michael Schumacher back in 2004."
In a graph under the article that best ever time is given as 1.16.043. That isn't the fastest time ever in pre-season testing in Jerez. That's 1.15.680 by Jenson Button's Honda in February 2005. I can't find Michael's 1.16.043 BTW, but I do find a 1.16.043 by Alexander Wurz (McLaren) in January 2005.
Still, even Jenson's time is not eight seconds faster than Magnussen's time of 1.23.276. And it would have nice to put things a bit in perspective: those 2004/2005 times were made when the 'testing season' as already in full swing and the V10 almost overdeveloped, while last week's tests were just a very early tryout session. And for some perspective it would have been nice if last year's test FL was also mentioned: Felipe Massa'1.17.879.

David Evans wrote in his story "Rally Sweden denies it needs to move" the following: "Rally Sweden (...) The World Rally Championship's only winter round..."
The Monte Carlo (January) and Wales GB (November) rallies must have slipped from David Evans mind, somehow...

I have suddenly been unable to Quote or Multi Quote in my replies. I have tried in a couple of Forums and it is the same. This is particularly annoying as when trying to either use a previous comment to add weight to my input or when using a quote to highlight an error I cannot.

I cannot pay my subscription this year (my cards changed numbers last year) and I am unable to change my card numbers on the Autosport subscriber pages. I have emailed Autosport three times via their subscription website, but I have not had any replies at all - including email replies.
An email address posted here for me to allow access to Autosport (or sent to me) would be appreciated.

"Williams is understood to have a seven-year contract with Mercedes, which could mean this is its longest period of engine stability since its early days running Cosworth power."
Really? Let's read further:

Front page, small "GP" info box in bottom right corner says that the sessions for the Malaysian GP are on Thu, Fri and Sat local time. When I click on "Convert to your timezone" it changes into the correct Fri, Sat and Sun CET times.

What is the 'effing point of adverising/displaying that a service is *LIVE NOW* when it is not/no link to it (http://live.autosport.com/.) I swear, that this site is becoming more amaturish as the years roll by.
I agree ... this site is getting so bad... poorly run and no thought to the changes they make other than to reduce the value.

"Michael Schumacher once identified Mika Hakkinen as the driver he most feared, yet Hakkinen's threat to the German's dominance didn't really extend beyond the 1998/'99 seasons"
I think this does not give nearly enough credit to Mika's 2000 challenge when he still lead Michael going into the 2000 US GP - what could've happened if his engine had not expired then? At least an even more thrilling finale....

In the article about Red Bull's hearing the spokesman for Mercedes said 'flount' the rules. Should that not be 'flout'?
Flaunting= demonstrating how good you are.
Flouting= having disregard for

Or Flounce: "to go or move in an exaggeratedly impatient or angry manner". Which sounds a bit like what Red Bull have been doing.
