  1. Nice Keith, are the cars actually doing some running today? I still think the Reb Bull and Merc look pretty mean, throw McLaren in there too, the horse also up there although some not too sure.

    Did Esteban stuff into the scenery??

  2. Looks, like williams is more quicker , and more reliable… lot of smiles @ william and force india , not as quick as expected and also facing lot of reliability issues,,, i hope force india gets its all together before they start racing

  3. I’m sorry, but the more we see of the Caterham the less it looks like a cartoon clown nose stuck on the front of an F1 car. More revealing are the above photos to show that the Caterham really looks like a shorter high nose car with a piece of pipe sticking out the front. It may meet the specifications of the regulations , but it seems to defeat the intended purpose of lower noses for better safety. In an impact it looks as though the pipe could go low or under and the high nose could still impact higher. None of the other designs so far give this impression. I realize all cars testing and even Lotus have passed the crash test, but the Caterham design just seems wrong in philosophy and not just because of appearance.

  4. Jealous
    I do like the water tanker; sweet design! In all seriousness, though, I really like the new car designs; I’m jealous of you guys watching them “live” in Jerez.

    Jerez, 1997
    I was in Jerez in ’97, standing on a hill overlooking the very corner – Dry Sac – where Schumi tried to stop Villeneuve from winning the championship. I am (and was then) a huge Schumi fan, but what he tried to do was incredibly obvious: Villeneuve managed to pass Schumi – and take the lead – on lap 48, by braking later into Dry Sac. He had the inside line and was slightly ahead when Schumi deliberately turned into him. The front right wheel of Schumi’s Ferrari connected with the sidepod of Villeneuve’s Williams. Schumi retired there and then; Villeneuve limped home to take third place and earn enough points to take the driver’s title; and Mika Häkkinen, following the crash, passed both of them to take his maiden F1 victory. Schumi was then disqualified from the 1997 Drivers’ Championship for his blatant act. It was incredible to be there and see one of these who-dares-wins moves by him!

    Rush (2013)
    Today I posted a short review of Rush on my film review site. I take care to not post spoilers and to only write about very well-made movies. If you want to take a peek, head over to There, that’s my own blatant act done!
