    A touch late seeing this, but Timo Glock celebrated Germany’s 1:7 against Brazil by re-decorating his usual number 17 this weekend at the Moscow DTM race:

    Really good race. Amazing finish. Lots of real close wheel to wheel action. Hinchcliffe and Pagenaud were side by side for almost 6 laps at one point.
    6 yellows (1 that became a red for rain), but generally quite clean racing
    10 lap sprint to the end started with Kanaan and Dixon 1-2, Hunter-Reay came from almost nowhere. Think he was 6th at the restart.
    Carpenter took out Montoya (for the final caution), who was pretty livid – he’d had a good run up to that point, twice fighting from way back. Newgarden was the biggest mover, grabbing 2nd at the death after starting 21st.

    P1. Hunter-Raey
    P2. Newgarden
    P3. Kanaan
    P4. Dixon
    P5. Carpenter

    Power went wide and hit the wall with 7 to go from 4th place to end up 14th. Castroneves also dropped from 3rd at the restart to end up only 8th, but takes a slim lead in the championship.

    So today they went a lot faster, largely due to yesterday’s tire chicane after the old hairpin being removed.
    Lucas di Grassi managed 1m31.973s with the top 14 within 2.1s which is pretty good.

    But before we have a true reference point, can someone confirm if they were on the National Circuit (I’d imagine so) or using the full GP layout?

    A completely pointless reference point is that Alain Prost holds the GP layout track record at 1m10.458s from back in 1993!

    That was WTTC last year, Aleksei Dudukalo driving for Lada took out his team mate James Thompson during Q1. He braked far too late for the first chicane:

    I’m gonna stick my nose out and say no new winners for the rest of the season and go with Carlos Sainz Jr next year.
    Bit of an extreme punt, but few predicted Maldonado.

    To be fair, when the top 16 are covered by a second, 15 is not too bad!

    Tony Kannan says he raced the 2nd half of the race under powered.
    He turned down the engine around the middle of the race, then the knob fell off the steering wheel so he was stuck like that!
    Still finished 6th!

    I’m glad i’m not the only one thinking that. Its not like Lotus have a history of being serious when it comes to their online presence.
    A rendering of a controversial idea, when ur missing the first test; to me sounds like brilliant gamesmanship.
    You know the other teams are gonna throw some effort at a) determining whether the Lotus idea is legal and b) whether it could provide them with some advantage.
    It would not surprise me to see Lotus follow the trend of walrus / finger nose come the next test.

    When you get up at 3am to sit in the stair well of your hotel, because its the only place you can get a reliable wi-fi signal to watch an awful quality stream of qualifying.

    Can. Not. Wait!
    Already got my Croft tickets. Oulton tickets will be purchased at pay day.
    Gonna be a pair of Williams Renault Lagunas. Shame that Plato will be too busy to drive!
    Tim Harvey’s looking for a drive in this pair of races. That would be good to see.
    Hopefully i’ll be able to find a pub not too far from Oulton Park showing the F1. Might have to sacrifice the first half hour tho i guess.

    My missus bought me a Lego Technic F1 car. Its not a specific team, but it looks a bit McLaren-esque. Not had any Lego since I was about 15! Also got the F1 2013 game for xbox and a book called “Motor Racing’s Strangest Races” which is entertaining, with quite a few interesting stories on pre-F1 races.
