At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
CONNEL’S John McPhee had a difficult end to the German Grand Prix, crashing out of contention after a promising qualifying in the top 10 on Saturday.
After a solid start, he dropped back before the fall – unable to get back into the race and focus immediately switching to the Czech Grand Prix in Brno after rear grip issues.
The Czech GP gets under way on August 4, and McPhee will be recharged and raring to go after the summer break.
John said: ‘I’m disappointed with the crash but I knew from the first laps that I had rear grip issues.
‘All weekend I’ve been doing consistently decent laps on the hard tyre so I’m not sure why it was so bad today.
‘It’s certainly not the way I wanted to go into the summer break but I will come back stronger and even more determined.’
