Here’s today’s round-up:
“Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone has hinted that the rule banning team orders may be abolished when it is reviewed at the end of the 2010 season.
“Echoing comments made by McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh at the Hungary Grand Prix, Ecclestone said: ‘We should let teams run their own strategy.’
“‘Teams will respect the rule as much as they can as long as it remains.’”
“What a weekend we’re having at Silverstone, the venue for the latest Renault F1 Team Roadshow. Along with all the World Series action, we’ve been wowing the British fans with the R29 – performing both quick laps and donuts in front of the huge crowds. As usual, it’s our reserve driver, Jérôme D’Ambrosio, on driving duty and he’s thoroughly enjoying his first taste of Silverstone F1-style.”
“Williams technical director Sam Michael believes the team should perform well at the Singapore Grand Prix next weekend, and expects both drivers to finish in the top 10.”
“In Formula One they call them ‘the flyaways’. It is when the clamorous circus goes long haul after the European season and prepares for its climax, this year in Singapore next Sunday, followed by Japan, Korea, Brazil and Abu Dhabi.”

Glue is wondering why the smaller teams at the back of the grid don’t employ publicity stunt tactics to get ahead.
