The Great Firewall of China is not going to stop GP+ publishing – although the Chinese are none too keen on allowing us to tell the world about their Grand Prix. There was a huge crowd in Shanghai to watch an absolutely exemplary display of driving from Lewis Hamilton, who led from lights to flag to score his 25th Grand Prix victory – and equal Jim Clark’s total of Grand Prix victories. Two more wins and he will be up with Sir Jackie Stewart. The race was a bit of a runaway victory for the Mercedes driver but there was action behind as Nico Rosberg battled his way through to take second to give Mercedes another 1-2.

GP+ is a racing magazine like racing magazines used to be, but is published in electronic form in PDF format, so you can read it on a laptop or a tablet. We take you behind the scenes in the F1 paddock and explain what is really going on. We have forthright opinions and we don’t care if we knock noses out of joint. There are plenty of fascinating stories from Grand Prix history as well, plus great photography and old style reporting, giving you a blow-by-blow account of what happened, both in qualifying and in the race, so you have a proper record which can stay in your computer for years to come.
It’s a real bargain. You get 22 issues for £29.99, covering the entire 2014 Formula 1 season. And all for the price of a pizza and a couple of drinks. And if that is not value for money, we don’t know what is.
