Hi, I noticed that you changed the text format of the laptimes list in the news of Monza FP1.




In the past you was using a different style of text, I don't know how to explain properly but I'm sure someone else knows what I mean.

Anyway, previous text was perfect to copy paste in other websites or in personal Word files: name, team, time, laps was coming perfectly aligned, because it was a formatted text I think... instead with this new style it's impossible to copy-paste it properly.


Not a good update for me.  :|


I hope I explained properly.

It should actually paste better into some programmes (Excel in particular, so long as you select "paste special" and paste it as unicode), and if you're putting into the likes of Word or an E-mail then it will carry the new formatting across with it. The reason is that these are "real" rows and columns now rather than a manual attempt at formatting the content into rows and columns with lots of spaces between numbers.


But I should remind you that we'd rather you didn't paste it anywhere which would mean infringing our copyright!

I'm a moderator in a football forum about Juventus and like in many other forums we also talk about other sports, including F1, etc.

Race by race I always copy-paste each session laptimes from Autosport, and I always type "autosport.com" underneath, I thought it's legal if you're reporting the source no ?

Anyway in our forum the old text was coming aligned, the new one don't, unfortunately.
