The Bahrain Grand Prix Proved That When Team Orders Lose, Fans Win

There was some controversy at the Malaysian Grand Prix, with Felipe Massa being ordered to let teammate Valtteri Bottas pass. It wasn't good for fans, it wasn't good for racing, but it was good for the team. Which was a shame.

Could The Loss of Long Beach Mean The End of IndyCar?

Rumours have turned into more or less believable financial figures recently how F1 could take Long Beach back. These mills include some investors you might have thought of or you had wished you have.
