Have you ever thought that Formula One was just a soap opera played for real?

Now, you have the script.


Maranello - the F1 soap opera

"a fictitious and outrageously bawdy soap opera...combining fast cars and fragile egos with ludicrous amounts of bed-hopping and plenty of extremely funny characterisations" (F1 Racing magazine, July 1998).

What would Dallas have been like if J.R Ewing had been a team owner rather than an oil magnate, and Sue Ellen's shoulderpads had been made out of Nomex? Click on the grid below to find out. Maranello is a saga of witchy women, powerful patriarchs and dodgy deals - now back for its second season by popular demand. And don't all go mailing me to say it's not as funny as it used to be last year.

Maranello is guaranteed free from crap jokes about JV's hair, Schumacher's respect for rules and Bernie's wad. (Well, almost). All of your favourite jokes from last season, and some shiny new ones, are contained within. So don't feel guilty, grab some champagne and caviar and wait for the red lights to go out...
