There has never been more business news in Formula One than in 2023 as the sport booms across the world. The August issue of BusinessF1 contains 21 pages of mostly exclusive news, plus another 22 pages of Insight, the in depth stories behind the news. Every story is packed with facts and is brought to you by BusinessF1 writers, trained to dig deeper. BusinessF1 is the only Formula One magazine not influenced by public relations consultants. The magazine makes its own mind up based on the facts available, not the fantasy of a PR consultant. This month’s Insight stories look at Audi’s future in Formula One, the rising value of Formula One teams, the financial dilemmas facing team’s based in Britain and Mercedes-Benz’s rebranding.
The August cover story is entitled ‘The Fix’ and tells the story of how former FIA president, Max Mosley engineered it so the Benetton team was left off when it interfered with the fuel rigs at the 1994 German Grand Prix. It faced expulsion from the championship until Mosley told defending barrister George Carman QC, how to manipulate the FIA World Motorsport Council.
Plus, a retrospective on Britain’s first Formula One world champions, Vanwall and a look back at Zak Brown’s Nascar Subway deal that went wrong. And an introduction to the Caira brothers, who are making an impact in historic F1.
