Hello. I am Joe Saward and
I am a journalist, although as you can see from the tabs on the left of this
page I do rather more than that.
I write primarily about
motorsport and concentrate specifically on the FIA Formula 1 World
Championship, the world's leading motor racing championship. I attend all the
races, and I have done since the summer of 1988. This means that I am one of a
very small group of opinion formers at the very centre of this multi-billion
dollar global business.
I know the right people and I
can go through doors that are closed to others.
I am not simply a sports writer,
as I look behind the headlines and specialise in analysing the way in which the
sport affects (and is affected by) politics, finance, business, innovation and
the environment - and even the influence of F1 as a tool of social development.
If I use figures I do not guess, I ask.
By way of relaxation, I write
also about the activities of the Special Operations Executive (SOE), a secret
army created by the British Government during the Second World War,
concentrating specifically on France. My aim is to tell the stories of people
who deserve to be remembered for what they did and for which they received no
I am interested in all things
French. Born and educated in England, I have lived in France for 20 years,
although the nature of my work means that I travel a great deal.
Have a look around the website.
You will find some of things that I have done and samples of my work. If you
think that I can help you in any way through my writing, publishing,
consulting, teaching, speaking or simply through my contacts, please get
in touch. I am happy to discuss, advise and deliver.
