OK i understand this is a business and needs to make money and once the Atlas buy out (partnership, sale, not sure which) happened we knew we'd see changes and most have been fine. Having the Castrol Rankings as news is pushing it a bit IMHO. This site has had it's success (primarily IMHO) because news was news and it didn't happen unless Atlas (Autosport) confirmed it.

Long term I reakon you're doing yourself a dis-service.

Plugging the car you were loaned by an F1 sponsor in an article isn't much better.
