MARTIN SAMUEL: F1 is at a crossroads ahead of Mercedes’ appeal… Is it sport, which evolves in real-time and won’t always conform to the desires of the box office, or is it a content provider that will bend to the whims of producers?

Formula One now has the entire winter to decide what sport it wants to be. Sport is the best, the only true reality television, because it evolves in real time and can’t be edited. He’s played team sports all his life, so knows how to muck in. And all of that is part of sport, without any recourse to direction. Yet anyone who knows and cares for sport would have understood that, yes, sometimes it happens. To then run the race as a scriptwriter might, however, is the moment when F1 stops being a pure sport. Let the sport play out as it will; or manipulate, get involved?.
