An apology

TJ13 regrets that last week we published an article quoting journalist Christian Nimmervoll on a piece involving Ferrari and the FIA.

Unfortunately, we misquoted Christian whose original article was published in German, due to some ambiguous translation results via automated translation software.

Christian got in touch with TJ13 late last week and requested the article be taken down as it was felt that the quote written in English under his name wasn’t accurate and could well damage his reputation. Of course, as soon as we heard about the issue we did exactly that and un-published the article in question.

Certainly, we would not wish to damage the credibility of any journalist who earns their crust reporting on Formula 1 and other motorsports. TJ13 content is often generated by F1 fans who like to contribute to the Formula 1 story, but in the future, stricter editing guidelines will now be in place to help ensure this doesn’t happen again.

TJ13 sincerely wishes to apologise to Christian.

  1. Good!
    I like your approach and understand how it works so for me no problems at all. You’re definitely not one of the “monkeys with typewriters” some journos like to call out. But that’s hard for some to grasp
