    Probably a bit, they both seem to accept the other’s point of view, but even though he knows it wasn’t totally Jenson’s fault I think Hamilton will probably feel he took the win away from him.

    I’m surprised you guys could make the tyres last so long, I felt them going off on lap 4 and so did 5 lap stints (except an early stop on lap 19), still managed to keep up fairly well though.

    Wasn’t the greatest race for me, GT5 brings out my inner Maldonado, but when I managed to keep it on the track there were some pretty sweet battles, especially down mulsanne. I seemed to have considerably less downforce than everyone else, I think about a 10mph advantage on the straights but got a few bumps from behind while going through porsche curves – sorry for being so slow :(.

    TBH if there’s a 24h race at the Nordschliefe I’d rather use GT cars than prototypes, that place is twice as evil in the dark.

    Erk, that didn’t go so well. Was closing in on the leaders then got spun out on lap 21 and backed into the pit wall at about 100mph, race over.

    Did a bit of night testing just now, holy crap you cant see anything! My best lap is a 3.24, can probably take a second off that.

    Haha I dont even have the track, definitely giving this one a miss :P. Next week should be good, less bumpy track that I can get my teeth into for a change.

    On a related note, when I looked near the end of last week I was 20th in the championship, looking good for my aim of top 25 :D

    Here’s the championship table for the British skippy championship, looks like Blake is going to be my closest rival, although he’s out of dropped races already. http://www.irengland.webspace.virginmedia.com/britishskip_2011s2.htm

    An earlier starting time would help me out too actually

    It’s a perfectly reasonable question, as far as I know Sao Paulo is the only place where drivers need armed police to escort them to and from their hotel?

    I think it’s more likely to be sponsored by Air Asia if he takes over, but whatever.

    Not to mention you dont need to delve into their minds, just delve into the comments on the main site.

    Thinking about it, the GP going to Bahrain might be a good thing in the long run, it means they have to open up somewhat to outsiders so we should be able to see for ourselves what is going on. Plus it will get a lot of media attention, which as usual fizzled away about a week after this all kicked off.

    I’m not going to bother taking sides because as far as I can see they’re both as bad as each other. On the one hand you have a (semi-)violent uprising fueled by religious differences and regional power plays, on the other you have a government being heavy-handed in their crackdown of said uprising.

    Anything that can shed some light on the whole situation and perhaps pursuade the government to release some political prisoners can only be a good thing, right?

    Did some praccy yesterday, I see what you mean. I’m not having huge problems but when I do they’re pretty difficult to survive, like I said at Sebring I’m just turning in and hoping it understeers the right amount. Paddock hill is the worst place for that, one lap I turned in where I thought I normally did and ended up about 3 meters inside the apex ><. Best lap is a 1.20.8, I’m actually pretty consistent around that, unusually.

    Ah I turned mics off while driving a long time ago, I find it really distracting when two people are arguing about an accident or something.

    Haven’t started practicing at Brands yet, at least it’s a track I know reasonably well though. I can imagine Paddock hill and Dingle Dell are interesting in the SM. I wouldn’t worry too much about crashing, it’s a rare week that I manage to do a race distance in practice before the race, but it usually turns out ok :D.

    I suspect being an engine manufacturer helps, not sure who controls the decision although I would imagine it’s the FIA rather than Bernie.

    I dont care so long as it has that meaty V8 rumble, best sound in the world.

    Got myself a thoroughly undeserved second place this week, qualified 8th!

    Not sure if you noticed I was in a race with you (briefly) last week Joey, wish I hadn’t messed that one up since my next race had 3 of the top 5 in the championship in it, they left me for dead :(
