F1 » Virgin sporting director backs free-to-air F1


Having read about this on another website, the Concorde Agreement clause says the sport should be "shown free to air where there are suitable broadcasters prepared to do this." Last year there were around 527 million viewers on free to view channels worldwide, and the sponsorship deals would surely drastically diminish if this were to change. Yes the Concorde is up for renewal next year, but would need all the teams and the FIA to agree a change. Would they be willing to risk losing sponsorship if the viewing figures decreased as drastically as I believe they will if they went pay-per-view??

F1 » Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton penalised


Generally I really enjoyed the race, plenty of action and much excitement watching Koba dicing with Schuey, DiResta dicing with anyone he could, and Webber going very well... When the fight with Alonso and Hamilton started, I was actually on the edge of my seat. A daft mistake by Alonso, but in the heat of battle (which we have been craving for!) these things happen. Absolutely gutted to read about the penalties for both drivers, and totally unjustified in my opinion. Crazy! How to stop drivers going for it in the future, in one easy step...

F1 » Boullier: Renault is in talks with Group Lotus


From what I can work out from all this, Colin Chapman had the foresight to separate Group Lotus from Team Lotus, to ensure anything that happened to one side of the business didn't affect the other. When Proton bought Group Lotus, they assumed they would have Team Lotus too (similar to how the Americans thought they bought Tower Bridge many years ago!) Obviously they were wrong and there were many courtroom battles with Hunt to determine who owned Team Lotus. The outcome was that Hunt owns the rights. Then Fernandes comes along and says he wants to start a serious F1 team, using Lotus' name (but not Team Lotus) and comes to an agreement with Tony to allow him to call the team Lotus Racing. Now this has obviously cheesed Proton off, because they cannot use Team Lotus. However, they are trying underhand tactics to try to get Fernandes and Hunt to back down, by using Group Lotus to negotiate with Renault. The plot, like the gravy, is thickening....
