The October issue of BusinessF1 contains the full story of Oscar Piastri’s switch from Alpine to McLaren. It’s a story that frankly is not believable, but nevertheless it happened and the repercussions are still being felt two months later. We also examine a similar situation 20 years ago when Jenson Button attempted to move to BMW Williams whilst still under contract to BAR-Honda. The Piastri CRB Tribunal is covered separately in full detail. A delightfully funny article chronicles the destruction of the career of Daniel Ricciardo and his former manager Glen Beavis and explains their nicknames in the paddock, Beavis and Butthead. We examine the influence of the Dunning-Kruger syndrome in the Formula One paddock – it explains a lot.
We go back to the Nürburgring to examine the upcoming battle between Vanwall and Aston Martin for the title of the fastest road car ever round the ring. Lastly it is Part 3 of the Last Love Story, the continuing story of the last days of Ayrton Senna and the girl he intended to marry if he had lived - Adriane Galisteu.
