I see James Allen is running a competition on his website with a very exciting prize. Entry is via nomination and D Winn and Jasper have very kindly put my names down for it – thanks very much to them!
There are loads of people who post in the comments here who I’d like to nominate but I couldn’t possibly pick just one. Instead I strongly urge you all to head over there and nominate one of the many excellent contributors from the F1 Fanatic community to win this excellent prize.
Here’s today’s round-up:
Looks like Sebastian Vettel was unhappy about something: “Seriously guys are you ******* kidding me or what?”
“So we can rotate mechanics, that?óÔé¼Ôäós possible. It becomes a bit more difficult with the engineers, because of course they are very closely linked with their drivers. I think we?óÔé¼Ôäóll have to think about their workload at the factory as well as their workload at the circuit.”
Gerard Lopez: “It’s funny because people now think things are going well and we’re going to change drivers. There’s a certain rally driver that wasn’t interested in Formula 1 but now has made contact and is interested in coming back to F1, funnily enough with us, but we’re not there yet.”
Comment of the day
Bumps give a circuit character. We don?óÔé¼Ôäót want to see twenty races where the surface is as flat as the proverbial billiards table. It might be uncomfortable for them, but bumps add an extra layer of challenge to a circuit.
From the forum
Here’s a cracking thread from polishboy808: design your own street track.
The F1 2010 statistics page has been updated and now has a menu using anchor links to help you find what you want and a breakdown of engines used so far by each driver.
On this day in F1
Two years ago we polled on who was the best F1 driver in the wet and, out of over 1,000 responses, Lewis Hamilton came out on top.
Has that view changed since then? Have your say in the comments.
