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".

Not an error per se but what about replacing the 2013 Brazilian GP schedule with 2014 Testing schedule?

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...   ;)

The headline

is totally wrong. The article is about victories that missed in a painfull way. Now an accident was painfully avoided: that is a near-miss, almost an accident.

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.

There's a typo in this story:

 

http://www.autosport...t.php/id/112748

 

It currently reads "... '10 Golden Rules for Safety Motoring.' "

 

According to the MSA wesbite, this should be '10 Golden Rules for Safer Motoring’:

You state that Ericsson finished 22nd, he finished 14th.

 

Also, the error in my post above is there also for the Bahraini GP info box.

"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.

Once, way back way more than a decade, almost 15 Years, this was the place we would help our friends from Atlas. Now it is just autosport showing off their own lack of commitment with the site itself, isn't it? imHHHo, of course, before I get banned for this single wholeheartedly truly post... Actually, I didn't say that at all! I didn't post this, at all! Someone got my password and posted on my behalf! Aliens, perhaps! :lol:  ;)

The Dane starred in Australia, finishing third on the road before being promoted by Daniel Ricciardo's exclusion for exceeding the fuel-flow rate, but has failed to score a point since.

Wrong. Magnussen scored two point in Malaysia, finishing 9th.

Problem is still there for the Spanish GP, it says Thu, Fri and Sat local time (times are correct, weekdays wrong). Clicking "Convert to your timezone" shows them correctly as Fri, Sat and Sun. Interestingly the "Barcelona local time" is correctly shown. Same problem on IE and Firefox browsers.

"Porsche LMP1 technical director Alex Hitzinger has revealed that the same problem had already been encountered in pre-season testing and that a stronger driveshaft was already in manufacturer ahead of Spa."

 

Surely manufacture, not manufacturer...

 

And then later in the same report...

 

"The hybrid system problem that lost the fourth-placed #14 Porsche 919 driven by Neel Jani, Marc Lieb and Romain Dumas was a result of a false system alarm, according to Hitzinger."

 

Lost the fourth-placed #14 Porsche 919 what? Time? A podium finish? Based on a later paragraph in the same story, a podium finish may well be the answer, but it is missing from the earlier paragraph which probably needs it (or just remove the 'lost' part of that earlier paragraph)

I think that the problem was with the way that it was being forwarded... It should be working again (I've just tested it and it's definitely going to the right people) so let me know if you carry on getting a bounce!

"The withdrawal of the GreenGT hydrogen-powered experimental prototype, which was due to take the Garage 56 slot, three weeks before last year's race left the entry one short of its 56-car capacity."

 

Not true. The GreenGT was replaced last year by a GTE-Am Porsche entered by Prospeed Competition, because the reserve list still had two entries at that point.
