I spent a large part of today enjoying Shell and Ferrari’s generous hospitality (more on that later) which meant I didn’t have much chance to take any photos of the track action.

I did snap a few however – here’s a small selection.

  1. Looking forward to reading about your day with Ferrari Keith, any idea when the article will be put together?

  2. There seems to be quite a change to the RedBull nose?

  3. Red Bull has now got the Platapus duckbill nose.:-)
    I see you got a pic of Sutil before he splattered it against the tire barrier. I know….there was a mechanical problem. Man, on TV he was really sawing away at the wheel right before he left the road!

  4. It seems like Ferrari also has a higher nose cone than at the beginning of the season. The change is very subtle though.

    1. or is it the angle of the picture?

      1. Yeah, it might be the angle. But you can see the vertical plates that hold the front wing are different, so some changes clearly have been done.

    I can’t wait to hear about your excursion at Ferrari, plenty of juicy gossip like Kimi being drunk at the press conference and Stefano firing his chef for over cooking his steak.

    Before taking the steak back to Mugello to modify it for straight line taste performance.

      good to see the alcohol from last night hasn’t left my system.

      I’m sitting here waiting rather patiently for the Chain to scream out of my TV.

      1. I’m doing the same thing, patiently watching mitch and matts big fish in eager anticipation for BBC 1 to start the broadcast :)

          indeed Tom watching the politics show here, the only ever time politics is interesting is when Boris Johnson says something, or when you know after the pain you hear The Chain.
