Here's a sprinter's version of some of the other stories we're following:

  • Formula One bigwig accused of homophobia: McLaren Mercedes honcho Ron Dennis is being sued by Peter Boland, a former employee who claims claims MM's upper-managers spread rumors about his sexuality, then unfairly dismissed him. Boland also claims Dennis made racist remarks about Arabs. FYI, this is the same Ron Dennis who hired F1's first black driver. Irony! [via Outsports]
  • Gettelfinger says "no thanks" on behalf of Big 2: UAW pres Rob Gettelfinger told Automotive News that GM and Chrysler may not need additional bailout dollars, saying "If we can get by without more money, that's what we want to do." Which is great, but, um, GM and Chrysler should probably have a say in that. [via Autoweek]
  • Pollute more, pay more: There's a plan afoot in the UK to charge high-emissions cars more to park than low-emissions cars. It appears that drivers will register their vehicle and receive a parking card, tied to their vehicle's make, model, and emissions rating. Ain't technology grand? [via Autocar]
