"It is the first time that a team has had three consecutive 1-2 finishes since 2004 with the Ferrari’s of Michael Schumacher and Rubens Barrichello."

The plural of Ferrari is Ferraris, without the apostrophe.

I weep when I see craigslist stupidity creep into GrandPrix.com . . .

Nature of copy is that it is produced very quickly, under pressured situations and usually while multitasking. Additionally, many pieces of software helpfully try to add grammar and spelling variants automatically, which is often overlooked by those in a hurry. Generally GP.com follows a policy of getting the information posted quickly, editing later as needed.

What do you find worse in a person? An occasional written mistake, or holding a desire to publicly point out the mistakes of a person they don't know?
