A1GP: A clean sweep for France this weekend, as the team returned to its winning ways with Alexandre Premat claiming both the Sprint Race and the Feature Race, as well as the bonus point for fastest race lap. Premat was joined on the feature race podium by second-place Jos Verstappen (Netherlands) and Neel Jani (Switzerland). Total points for the weekend saw France on top, followed by Switzerland, the Netherlands, and Italy, with Germany and the Czech Repulbic tied for fifth. Heading into the penultimate round of the championship, France holds a commanding lead over Switzerland. The two teams are guaranteed the top two spots on the Championship podium, but the final podium spot will be a battle, with Great Britain holding a slim lead over Brazil, Netherlands and New Zealand.

      For months I've visited this site. And for months I've tried to figure out what [NOT TIVO SAFE] means.

      Maybe I'm just stupid... Can someone shed the light?

      The spectacular crash under yellow by the Japanese driver during the A1GP long race deserves a special mention. The accident was pretty incredible in terms of both weirdness and severity.
