“ All the info for F1 enthusiasts. „
F1 News used to be the only F1 magazine I bought. Having been a fan of F1 since 92, and a subscriber of F1 News since 94, it was the perfect magazine. I have recently subscribed to F1 Magazine, but am still going to get F1 News. Sadly, the editor Derek Wright recently passed away. However, the superb British Grand Prix edition has extra pages, and looks to be one of the best issues ever. Regular competitions, driver interviews and special features make the magazine worth buying. So far I have won two books and a few models in their competitions, not bad going! If you like F1 this is the magazine for you. Out every two weeks, except during the off season, it occasionally has free gifts which should be enough to tempt you.
At 20 next moth I have been into Formula 1 for a couple of years and really enjoy watching the races but also sice moving into a University flat I have taken to reading magazines about Formula One aswell! I feel that we are very wrongly done by when it come to the focus of this particular magazine. As it is very much focused on male readers when surely Formula One an all motor racing are sports enjoyed by both sexes. The first issue which (Feb 10th) was ok. i thought it was informative and interesting read. Unfortunatly I was not the person who weh=nt to buy issue 2 (24th feb) as I was busy a friend had purchased this copy. Well it struck me as odd that the front cover had a woman with no more that dungaries on showing part of her breast should apper on the front cover of a motor racing mag. Well I began reading it and on page 1 here appears this woman again. So as were reading through this mag this strange figure keeps on appearing on the page for no apparent reason it is by this time I have concluded that the editors think that by sticking women on the pages i will keep the interest of their male readers. When frankly if you a follower of the sport you wouldn;t want that kind of thing any way and what about us lasses! The mag was topped off by an advert on page 79 for table top dancers! Come on editors think about your real readers, the people who generally have the money to read your magazines having not got drunk on it! Note: The editor is a man so well it figures. But I certainly won't be buying this over priced trash anymore!
