    ”theres only one way forward”

    there sure is, they cant get any worse, but still overall nice to see teams interact with the fans.

    • yes, and i think F1 has taken a good step forward in the last 12 months in this respect.

      Most teams and drivers are now using Twitter, which has been a great development, and also team podcasts are now becoming more widespread, which is another nice form of interaction.

    Did Nick get arrested for ‘hooning’ in that W196?

      He certainly did.The photo of the 3 drivers at the press conference must have been taken before he drove the W196 as he would have had a permanent grin on his face afterwards!

  6. Looks very much like the Brawn GP BGP-01! Doesn’t look the same in silver :(

    Keith am disappointed that you can post the MGP run but not the Red Bull in Belfast?
