Just in case...

IT is time for the annual Birthday Honors List in Britain and, as in recent years motor racing people have figured strongly in terms of awards, we feel it is a good moment to warn in advance in case there are any more names from the racing world on the list.

There are several obvious candidates but as the list comes under a considerable amount of political scrutiny and motor racing has a checkered history with the current Labour Government, there may not be anyone on the list.

It might be worth keeping an eye open too for David Richards, who has achieved a remarkable amount in his competition (and business) career, even if at the moment BAR - his new baby - is not at the front of the grids.

Another name which has often been mentioned is that of Sid Watkins, Formula 1's doctor and the force behind the safety developments which have been introduced in the last eight years.
