Is it just me? I have been unable to read any recent articles on
GrandPrix.com for the last three days. I get a message stating that
the page is not available when I click on any article link.

Since new articles keep appearing, I am left to suspect that the site
is unaware of any issues. I can still read articles from March 11th
and older, so it is not that the site is completely down.

It won't help with the problem, but I could perhaps take some comfort
in the knowledge that the issue doesn't just lie with me.

All seems fine from here.

...but it has a very good encyclopedia. Well I used to find it so some
years ago but I guess it's possible it has been surpassed by wikipedia.

I just checked, and I get the same condition.

The reason I didn't notice earlier is that that site isn't up to much these days, so I seldom bother. It's sole source is GMM, so whatever reports it carries, plenty of other sites will carry too. So it's no great loss.

I looked at the site yesterday (or was it the day before?) and it worked
but today I got an apology page saying: “You may have received this page
because we are launching new features or there is a problem on the site”.
There seems to be something of a shake up going on in the world F1 news
sites; I can longer get GPUpdate, the old url switches me through to
Autosport. Joe Saward also now has a new (and improved I must say) site.

And to the best of my knowledge that site is owned by a certain Zak
Brown. So guess how impartial it is! Plenty of stories about anything
related to McLaren of course.
