I just received an email from autosport.com’s editor-in-chief saying that as of tomorrow news stories on his website will be free to read. There will still be pay content (worth subscribing to, I should add), but the most important part – the headlines – are yours now for nothing.
The most interesting section of the email, however, was the claim that the reason for doing this was that autosport.com was now the best F1 website on the internet. Do you agree? I certainly think it is – the news arrives there sometimes a day before it does on itv-f1.com, and the race reports are much more detailed. A swinger in the debate has to be the terrible ‘Italian GP Preview’ on itv-f1.com at the moment which tells you nothing about the race at all.
