RIP Formula 1

Dr Nicholas M. Almond

We are no longer watching Formula 1, rather we are watching a hyped version of Formula Ford, but where the drivers cannot take risks and the tactics of refuelling have been abolished. F1 has always been about money, speed and risk taking, so why not bring it back to the good old days?

Formula 1 has traditionally been operated in the penumbra of a document called the Concorde Agreement. This legally-binding document ties the teams, the commercial right's owners (FOM) and the governing body (FIA) together in a dance of speed, technology and perhaps most importantly...money.

Conquest Without Contribution: Sport Now Second to Scandal and Salary?

Mark Borkowski | Posted 28.10.2013 | UK Sport
Mark Borkowski

To be sure, scandal has always been with us. The annals of British history are littered with the names of great national hellraisers, from Vinnie Jones to Gazza and beyond. However, there is a difference. Recent distasteful behaviour in sport, whether it be the English rugby team tossing midgets, or the bout of al fresco relief with which I began this article, betrays cultural problems, not individual misdemeanours...

But back to Bernie. He wants 10 teams, when we have 11 on the grid. Why doesn't he just say instead that he wants to make hundreds of people unemployed and see a company go bankrupt during the most fiercest worldwide recession ever?

Formula for Disaster

Beneath the royal weddings, Formula One races and other events that bore many normal people (myself included), the Anglo-Bahraini relationship is purely material. Bahrain has at least ten years of oil reserves left, and produces 40,000 barrels a day, representing a serious resource pool for British energy needs.

Bahrain's Black Flag Grand Prix

Neil Durkin | Posted 18.06.2013 | UK Politics
Neil Durkin

Like last year and the year before that (when the Bahrain race was cancelled), the imminent arrival of hi-tech racing cars, celebrity drivers, harassed team crews (and doubtless several crates of soon-to-be-wasted Moët) on the tiny island state of Bahrain has now become an annual occasion for examining the country's human rights record. That record, like the famous Formula One finishing flag, is ... well, extremely chequered.

Formula One has a certain amount of specification to it and there is no doubt about that fact but unless it becomes a much more regulated and specified sport, like NASCAR, it will be very difficult to avoid the development war which will escalate costs and separate the herd of have's and have not's.
