    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.

    After seeing the crash live, I had a feeling he’d never race IndyCar again, but I thought he’d still be fine for some form of sports cars. Absolutely gutted for him, but its understandable. I always forget he’s 40 years old now.
    On the plus side, its nice to see the world of motor sport paying tribute to someone in less tragic circumstances for a change. He’s still got his life, can walk and will still have much to give to motor sport.

    Part of me is thinking “great, that’ll add another two minutes to the excess of first corner replays blighting the opening laps”.
    I think it’ll be pure luck if that camera catches anything. Agree that it pans far too slow and that the 180 degree field makes it pointless.

    Just to prove how little i know about marketing, this autosport article basically says that Renault Uk can’t afford a FR3.5 race, despite being a subsidy of Renault!

    I was also a bit disappointed at the lack of a British round again, specifically after the quote:
    “We’ve put together a calendar that offers plenty of variety and is structured around Formula 1 circuits and key markets for the Renault brand”.
    So even based purely on branding alone, two Spanish races trumps one British race?
    I’ll never understand marketing. lol

    Good end to a very competative season. Kinda bizarre that Dixon was the only Honda entrant left at the end of the race.
    Also, i bet Power is kicking himself that he finally managed a win at the end of the season, but only when there was nothing at stake.
