Weekend review and results round-up

This weekend was a moment of relative respite before the fireworks of the Formula 1 title run-in, and with most of the European series having finished their championship seasons

Weekend review and results round-up

The DTM title battle is still going on, though, and Paul di Resta now holds a narrow advantage heading for the final rounds in Italy and China, having extended his winning run to three races with a consummate performance at Hockenheim.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup remains open too, despite Jimmie Johnson having edged back into his habitual points lead. He extended his cushion a little at Charlotte, though all the title combatants were overshadowed by race-winner Jamie McMurray on Saturday night.

Juho Hanninen didn't even have to turn up in Scotland to become Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion, so his win in the penultimate round was a happy bonus - while home favourites Guy Wilks and Kris Meeke both rued misfortunes while fighting for victory.

Casey Stoner remained unbeatable on home turf in MotoGP at Phillip Island, forcing newly-crowned champion Jorge Lorenzo to settle for a distant second place.

A run in F1's feeder GP3 category only caused his career to stall, but now back in Australia Mawson's S5000 title success has set that to rights

The lesson football’s would-be wreckers could learn from racing

OPINION: The greed-driven push for a European Super League that threatened to tear football apart is collapsing at the seams. Motor racing's equivalent, the football-themed Superleague Formula series of 2008-11, was everything that the proposed ESL never could be
