A NEW RACES INTO the F1 season, and already there are rumours about drivers getting dropped or replaced. Williams has had a dreadful season and Sirotkin is looking vulnerable; Stoffel Vandoorne lacks raw pace and is permanently in Alonso's shadow; and that youngster, Max Verstappen, surely he's going to get sacked by Red Bull. He's useless.

ONCE, I WAS a professional mechanic. In my twenties, after earning a university degree in English Literature. After months of searching, I hadn't found a job in my chosen field that would simultaneously fund both rent and cheap soup, because that is how literature degrees work. So I started working on cars for a living. I was good at it, in the sense that I repaired things. I was also terrible at it, in the sense that I was slower than uphill mud.
