As apologies go, it was a pretty hollow one. Sebastian Vettel arrives in Shanghai this weekend having apparently said sorry to each and every member of the Red Bull Team for his actions in the last race - even Mark Webber. According to the team, the row over Vettel overtaking Webber to win in Malaysia despite team orders is forgotten. As if.

Sebastian Vettel

Sebastian Vettel's ill-planned decision, made in the heat of the moment, to ignore his Red Bull team's order to stay second behind Mark Webber in last Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix has stirred up the eternal debate about the sport's true identity - is it racing between teams or individual drivers?

Pit Stop

Petrolheads heading up to Shanghai should be in for a treat this weekend. The noise and the spectacle of a grand prix is always something a sports fan should try and experience up close at least once, but this weekend there is a bit of added spice.

Pit Stop

I've looked it up. Not online, but properly, in an old-fashioned, big book. A dictionary - remember them? - and I quote, 'Teammate [noun] a fellow member of a team'.

No great surprise there then, but it might be worth showing it to the Red Bull team as they head to Montreal for this weekend's grand prix.

Engineering marvels

They look like any other engine to the untrained eye. Even the trained ear has trouble recognising the different engines.

But the Formula One engines are miles apart - in their construction at the rival factories and often at the end of a Grand Prix.
