Post subject:  Autosport features are too long!

Bought myself an Autosport online subscription to celebrate the start of the season and try to get up-to-date with the goings on that I probably missed the last 12 months. I had one a couple of years back and thought it was a reasonable price to pay to support a struggling industry.

One grievance I have with the publication is their features are consistently way too long. Maybe I have a short attention span, but they so often lure me in with interesting titles only to be followed by 2500-word stories virtually every time. I usually lose interest after four or five paragraphs. They have a serious issue with getting to the point.

Sorry, this is just a rant but I'll segue it into a constructive question:

What's the best website for motorsport news and features?

Well, I thought it was Autosport until I read this post!

He-he, my bad. That's my belief as well, I was just putting out the feelers for any genuine contenders.

I don't really read anything else, I can definitely say though that the PF1 website is NOT one to follow!

I tend to use Motorsport.com as my first port of call.

But, they own Autosport now, so I'm not sure!

Motorsport and Autosport are exactly the same, go on both of the websites now it's literally just a copy paste of the same articles, sometimes with a slightly different headline but not always. It's pointless them both existing now IMO.

I think Autosport only exists still because it used to be the 'go to' place. It'll be merged into motorsport.com soon enough I reckon.

Hilarious, Autosport is too in depth? Well, gee, look no further than Planet F1 for three line non stories!

Racer.com have a few decent stories occasionally but it's much more heavily geared towards American Motorsport. Miller's Mailbag is great reading every Wednesday to get a bit of an Indycar education, its probably the main reason I go there.
