Does it look like the site just woke up in the last week or so and is actually starting to regularly post news story? For the last year or so, this site has looked like it was dying.

I gather some deal was done with FXDD.

They have been pretty good stories too, useful insights rather than rehashed press releases.

Yea, that was not the case before. For a while it looked like they were just clipping and pasting from Planet F1.

Well, whatever is going on with the management, they continue to post stories on the front page of decent quality. Before I joined the forum, I used to come here because it was the best F1 news site. The last couple of years, I have only come here for the forum. I now find I am reading the front page again.

Well for a while now it has said Grandprix.com brought to you by FXDD, (look up in the brown header at the top of the page) not that there's been any annoucement of any kind that I am aware of.

FXDD is a stocks and shares trading company, (yes I googled), they also run an F1 game but you have to pay to play.

Oddly I'm not playing that one ;)
