    Here are the race highlights. Rotten luck for Hunter-Reay who was making a great recovery:

    Classy win for Power. He surely has the championship in the bag.

    I’ve heard that a few times before!

    But with both the remaining rounds (Infineon and Fontana) being on tracks where he won last year, it’s looking good for him.

    @peartree I’m not going to trust something that’s not bylined.

    Silverstone will be properly miffed about this given it’s only four years since they reconfigured their circuit to make it more bike-friendly (though when they planned that they were at risk of losing the British Grand Prix to Donington Park).

    @jeff1s Thanks for that. If, as you say, it’s mostly speculation, it should be presented as such by the person who wrote it in the first place (which may be the case) and by those reporting it now. That hasn’t been the case in most of the reportage I’ve seen, and several more publications have run it today.

    Some of the responses to this both here and on social media have been very revealing. A lot of people prefer to assume the list is accurate and not entertain the possibility that might not be the case. This is why “a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes”. When Mark Twain first said that it was hyperbole – in the age of the internet it’s an understatement.

    @peartree

    a Santander top man said that their company hadn’t renewed their McLaren contract amidst the Hamilton departure because with Button alone they didn’t think they would reach the audience they want

    I don’t remember seeing anything about that at the time – can you provide a reference?

    @zimkazimka Using the figures for anything is a complete waste of time if they’re not accurate to begin with.

    Whether or not it’s ‘reliable’, what it definitely isn’t is ‘new’ – the list is at least three months old:

    Button is back with another Santander spot – quite a funny one too:

    @andae23 I know what you mean but if it really came down to a choice between being a Mercedes junior driver and being a Red Bull junior driver that’s basically a choice between wanting to be a DTM driver and wanting to be an F1 driver. I think he’s done the right thing.

    Looks like he’s heading to FR3.5 – which hopefully means I’ll get to talk about him!
