    This video of a rather smoky practice start by Rosberg caught my eye. Bit of wheelspin too. Mercedes working on their inconsistent getaways?

    @philereid The mistake I keep making with these Formula E tracks is looking at the plans and thinking ‘oh yeah, that looks alright’ and forgetting that because they’re half the size of F1 circuits that means they’re actually much tighter and slower than I expect.

    But yes, at least they don’t appear to have designed in any chicanes which is always good. Turns four and 11/12 look promising.

    @craig-o I also think it didn’t make sense to tie aerodynamic development to engine manufacturers. If it was ever going to work, it should have been specific to each team. But regardless it’s a cost they don’t need.

    @vmaxmuffin I know where you’re coming from but Pagenaud’s driven very well too this year and he would be a deserving champion. I really hope double points doesn’t swing it on Sunday.

    @jaapgrolleman It’s definitely aiming for the whole James Bond thing but it looks too cheap and tacky to pull it off. It reminds me of those terrible intros ITV used to do.

    And if it’s aimed at people who don’t know F1 then the personality-cult cameo by Ecclestone makes no sense.

    But this is the cheesiest, dumbest piece of guff I’ve seen in a long time. At least the vast booming head of Ecclestone makes it entertaining:

    Formula One’s big new sponsor has begun pumping out its first promos. Love the retro vibe in this one:

    Here’s a great view of Alonso getting away quickly and Gutierrez much less well:

    Incomprehensible 1996 advert featuring Alain Prost:

    Anyone know what’s going on here?

    Lewis Hamilton drives a Mercedes GT-R around an overgrown Nurburgring Nordschleife:
