Article 1

...
Anyway, La Dynamite is a good place to stop if you are driving the 400 miles from Barcelona to Monaco, as you do in F1 these days. It’s about 250 miles into the trip. You could stop at the wonderful walled medieval city called Aigues-Mortes, which is slightly more off the route. This was once a port from which Crusaders departed to the Levant, but is now miles inland from the sea, because of the Rhône river deposits vast amounts of silt at its mouth, or rather its mouths, – as there are two of them.

Article 2

https://joesaward.wordpress.com/2022/05 ... ium-beach/

Monaco has always been a place that has lived off money from elsewhere, attracted by a scenic port surrounded by the high coastal mountain range, which shelters the town from cold northerlies. The fact that it faces south means that there is a warm microclimate so one can grow tropical plants and create exotic gardens.

The whole coastline – the Cote d’Azur – is like that and it became chic when wealthy members of the British aristocracy discovered that it was much nicer to spend their winters in the sunshine, rather than enduring British rain and fog - and that ghastly man Disraeli. They stumbled upon a small village called Nice, overlooking the Bay of Angels, and began to build villas. They soon added the Promenade des Anglais. Monaco at that time was remote and isolated. It was a fishing village with a castle on the hill above it. It was not rich and in 1856 Prince Florestan decided it needed more visitors and hit on the idea of building a bathing establishment and casino to pull in the deep-pocketed travellers.

2023 calendar talk

...
F1 growth is very exciting at the moment but for those who are hoping to see a 2023 calendar, there is going to be a bit of a wait, with an announcement not expected until the end of July. There will be some changes compared to this season and it seems that at the moment there are two different drafts of the 2023 calendar: one with 23 races, the other with 24.

The politics and a bit of geography of the Spa-Francorchamps situation garnished with a sprinkle of history served with a 1961 vintage cabernet humour...
Other courses are Piastri contract and the Right Wing of an Emerson Senate seat!

Good idea a ‘’joesaward blog page'’ on here saves F1TECH followers the trouble of going through the FI sites. A ''Chronosf1'' will also be of help.

True, but we have to very careful with copyright violations, post a link and very brief description. No copy/paste of entire tracts of text.
The more that I learn, the more I appreciate how much more there is to know….

Nope. Most forums do not allow "hijacking" to promote other people's pages. Servers cost money to run. Let Joe and whomever attract their own fanbase.

I've already reported multiple posts in this thread. In those cases for literally copying Joe Saward's articles in their entirety.

Mods, this thread should be locked.

The posts did initially copy entire posts from Saward's blog. That has though been corrected (thanks for the reports!).
Now we are down to links with summary or a short highlight, I see nothing wrong with that?
Good for us (if someone wants to visit Joe's blog), good for him (if it draws visits).
Or at least that's how I see it (and other mods more or less too).
I would like to see a paleontologist.

This is basically forum hijacking though.

I think you should discuss the content and put your link at the end of it.
