I’ve been reading F1 Racing magazine, and as I wrote on my other site
, the time lag between the writers writing and the printed magazine showing up on store shelves is substantial, and make the “current events” coverage rather non-current. It’s got to be hard to write under those circumstances. Does anyone else read sports magazines? Are they filled with speculation about what might happen in a game that, by the time you get the magazine, happened a month ago?
I did learn something new from this issue. The big sponsor of McLaren Mercedes is West. I had no idea what West made or did, and “west” isn’t the kind of name that Googles easily, so I never felt motivated to try to find out. I thought it sounded like a telecommunications company. It turns out to be a tobacco company. I had no idea. Here I thought McLaren was one of the very few without a cigarette company logo on everything, and it turns out they were covered with such all along and I just didn’t know.
