Lotus F1 Racing have announced their driver line-up for next year, and although not particularly brave choices, they’ve got themselves a lot of experience in Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.

A very British win

What a great result for British sport at Interlagos on Sunday. Don’t forget that Brawn, which was Honda last year and almost disappeared altogether over Christmas, is a British-owned team, staffed by British people almost exclusively.

More Brawn for Merc?

Mercedes-Benz is set to buy a chunk of championship leaders Brawn GP, according to F1’s rumour mill.
