The 2012 F1RWRS British Grand Prix was the seventh race of the 2012 F1RWRS season and was won by Chris Dagnall for the Jones Racing team. The result was somewhat marred for the team and it's principal Sammy Jones after Phoenix McAllister broke his nose during an exchange after Jones' retirement at the start of the race where it appeared that Jones had deliberately brake-tested McAllister's driver Barii Mori, thus forcing the retirement of the Japanese driver. Along with Rhys Davies who was also involved, McAllister and Jones were given multiple race bans as punishment for their behaviour, and the incident and the events leading up to it which have since been collectively dubbed The Mori/Jones Saga, have subsequently gone on to gain almost mythic status amongst both the paddock and fans of the sport alike.
