    To your second question, I’m guessing that it is a simple calculation based on every car starting with 100 kg of fuel onboard.

    I suppose it could turn out like Bahrain: many people say the race should not take place, some do not comment, and Bernie plays down the whole debacle. And in the end the race goes on as normal, and a week afterwards no one remembers that there even was a political conflict.

    According to La Stampa, Kimi’s preference is 7 (and Alonso’s 14).

    By the way, has the FIA ruled that leading zeros are not allowed? Kimi could apply for 07 instead of 7, and so on.

    Jenson Button. Hill, Surtees and Mansell all won their first Grand Prix in the European Grand Prix: Phill Hill 1960 Italian/European GP, John Surtees 1955 Ulster/European Motorcycle GP and Nigel Mansell 1985 European GP (at Brands Hatch). :P

    Can’t really isolate one corner, so here’s a bunch:
    - Shanghai: Turn 14 (the hairpin at the end of the back straight). Mostly because the exit kerb is just so strange, I can’t understand why it can’t be smoother like any other hairpin.
    - Catalunya: that chicane, mentioned 107 times already.
    - Silverstone: new Club. I dislike the current double-apex configuration.
    - Spa: Chicane. The good old bus stop was a pretty much universally hated corner, but at least it had some character (and those slowmo replays of cars bouncing over the kerbs). This one doesn’t.
    - Monza: the first chicane. It’s like two hairpins. Again, the old one was much more fun.
    - Yas Marina: too many to mention. The (almost) unnecessary chicanes at T5-6 and T11-13 stand out mostly.

    If I’m allowed to go back to 2002, then Japan from that year always comes to my mind first as a boring race. Absolutely nothing happened in that race, the only event of the weekend I remember is McNish having his huge accident.

    Pretty amazing job by Koiranen, new team and a 1-2 in just their second race. Solid engineering from Finland :)

    Team F1 Free 2013 is great for general info and news, and checking up on things like session start times (although those are on the F1F calendar as well).

    @ryanwilliams correct (but according to 8W it was Marlboro Lights :P).

    What were the two main colours of Keke Rosberg’s McLaren in the 1986 Portuguese Grand Prix?

    Fisichella at Brazil 2003 – I’d disagree with this (if you take into account the whole 15 years of the teams existence). Jordan was competing for the drivers’ world championship just a few years before (in 1999).

    I’m guessing it’s certain M Schumacher, as some/most lap records are still from 2004.

    Sector question (apart from Bahrain and Interlagos):
    - Spa’s S1 these days, as the two left-handers at Eau Rouge and Raidillon are not real corners, that leaves us just with La Source and the “real”, right-hander part of Eau Rouge.
    - Also, pushing it, India’s S1, if you ignore the slight left between T1 and T3.

    Correct @anto. Your turn.
