      1. The suits are designed by the fans in a competition, each race having a different one. It’s an awesome idea, but the editor on the website is pretty weird…

  1. You could be forgiven for thinking that this is A1GP.

    Williams have Venezuela written on there car.
    Sauber have Mexico written on there car.
    Lotus have Malaysia written on there car.
    Ferrari have Italy written on there car.
    Force India have India written on there car.
    HRT have Spain written on there car.
    McLaren are basically a British team.
    Mercedes are basically a German team.

    That only leaves Red Bull, Toro Rosso, Virgin and Renault.

        1. With German engines, Bahraini part-ownership and Kiwi heritage.

          I under stand that it is Kiwi heritage but with the McLaren and the Mercedes I was kind of drawing a long bow in regards to the driver line ups, ie. Mercedes have two Germans and McLaren have two British. I knew that would confuse people when I wrote it. :)

          1. I knew that would confuse people when I wrote it.

            I wasn’t confused. McLaren is a British team with two British drivers, therefore you’re right.

          2. No confusion – I’m disputing it.

            I’m not sure what you are disputing. I agree with you that they are not. The only reason I said it was the driver line up alone.

            I think they are about as British as Sir Jack Brabhams 1966 championship.

  2. The low camera angle on some of these photos are the BEST f1 pics Ive ever seen.(merc & ferrari)Fantastic across 2 monitors.
    Thanks for the effort.
