F1 RacingThe deal behind the return of the French GP Former motorcycle racer Christian Estrosi is one of the driving forces behind the revival of the French Grand Prix. Previously a government minister, Estrosi has occupied a number of roles in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, and is currently the Mayor of Nice. He's the man who engaged backing from the region to meet the race fee, enticed French F1 figures to support it, and who finally did the deal with Bernie Ecclestone, reports ANTHONY ROWLINSON 1529452800 F1

Ask GaryIs F1 missing easy ways to fix its on-track problems? F1 is working flat out to improve the spectacle of the racing for the future. But does one of its upcoming changes carry the risk of spreading teams out further, and is there a different way to approach the constant problem of cars racing in 'dirty air'? 1529366400 F1

Adam CooperHow F1's aero addiction could spoil 2019 masterplan Formula 1 and the FIA are pressing the teams to accept changes to the 2019 cars to improve overtaking - but even if these rules are accepted, there are 900 people working on plans that may yet negate their impact 1529280000 F1

Gary WatkinsWhat made the difference in Toyota's race against itself Toyota finally beat Le Mans in 2018. While it had no factory opposition in LMP1, its two cars were evenly matched for much of the 24 Hours - with one significant factor making the crucial difference 1529280000 WEC
