    Are you sure it didn’t read: “double the points, double the chance of a tainted championship?”.

    It still beggars belief that people with such low intelligence can make so much money and have so much power in this world.

    Great reading all the replies. Lots of shared feelings it seems.

    In the end I missed the US but watched just the BBC highlights for Brazil, which was ok because it wad interlagos of course. I have to admit, I’ve drifted back to reading the odd f1fanatic article too… how could I possibly not??!!

    Really hoping 2014 will be a good one.

    The article in 4 lines (with direct quotes):

    “McLaren are to use Honda engines”
    “…the engine manufacturer has decided to return”

    then…

    “The company has not yet officially confirmed its plans to return.”
    “Honda would become the fourth road-car manufacturer supplying engines in F1″

    Interesting if true, but in summary, an article designed to grab attention at the start, fading into speculation as you read on. One more click on the bbc sport website… success!

    On separate note, I’m much more concerned with a Toro Rosso just pulling to one side than overtaking in a yellow flag zone.

    References a tweet by Alonso, somehow taking the high ground. Perhaps he could hand his Singapore race win back then. Bah.

    Team radio. Heat of the moment comment. Means nothing. Case closed

    I guess thread over then. Do all radio messages mean nothing then ‘in the heat of the moment’.

    Personally, it reminds me of when you are in an argument (not a daily occurance, but it happens sometimes) and something you believe but never wish to come out just does so ‘in the heat of the moment.’

    Having said that, I guess I’m willing him to hate DRS more than anything else!! I’m sure the teams ask all the drivers not to comment on the FIA regs in the media, that’s why we don’t hear much.

    Wow @magnificent-geoffrey . I think you are by far leading this one now! It’s almost spooky your last paragraph… have you been travelling at 88mph lately?

    Here’s what could be my worst ever prediction, Piquet Jr. to win the Chinese GP 2008. What was I thinking!?

    My word that is an amazing video. The guy at the end must have been relieved to see the door open somewhat.

    He’s had more bad luck yes, but he’s also been in the mix more because of his inferior qualifying.

    @topdowntoedown The only place I can think of are branches of Rileys as they are 24 hr and show sky. Probably a few around Essex. I’m trying to find one for this Sunday but in South West London (the Southfields one closed down recently which is a bit of an arse).

    Sorry to report, I’m running android gingerbread and the images are massively stretched in the y dimension. Today’s round up I had to scroll down about 95% of the page to get to the text.

    I think it may just be the mobile version of the site because on my laptop (running Opera browser) the new site does indeed look very nice.
