    Power has been really good in recent races and probably would have won in Kentucky but for his dreadful fortune. He seems to have made progress on ovals.

    But would I bet against Franchitti finishing in the top four in Las Vegas (which I think is what he needs to do)? Nope. Franchitti will do it.

    I’m not surprised they haven’t fared better so far. It reflects less on them and more on how specialised and expensive F1 has become.

    Think of how few new teams entered the sport before 2010. In the space of 12 years from 1998 to 2009 we had two new arrivals: Toyota and Super Aguri. Both of which have come and gone in that short space. And Super Aguri weren’t making their cars from scratch.

    In this sense F1 had clearly become too rarefied. Ten teams was too few and 12 still isn’t enough – at the very least they need to fill all 13 slots. There’s no progress from junior formula to F1 for teams, something that used to happen with F2 and, to a lesser extent, F3000.

    I’ve just had a chat with the chap who sells these, Mark Hemsworth, who’s a former Arrows employee.

    You can find his website with all his stock here:

    http://www.f1-247.com/

    He obtains it all directly from from Williams and Red Bull so it’s all legitimate and the wheel in question above is from Webber’s Valencia crash.

    Some parts can go on sale earlier than others depending on how sensitive they are. Key aerodynamic parts might be kept back a few years – Mark mentioned some parts from the 2006 RB2 are only just going on sale now.

    Wheels, though, are not that sensitive and so that’s how these ones arrived so quickly. Mark mentioned two damaged wheels from Webber’s crash in Korea are going into the system at the moment.

    Mark says he’s happy to respond to questions from anyone looking to buy any ex-F1 car parts so do get in touch with him if you have any questions.

    Google appear to be in the process of lifting the warning. Will update on what happened in the round-up.

    I am investigating the problem at the moment however Google have supplied no details about it whatsoever.

    Their own warning says “0 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time Google visited this site was on 2011-09-11, and suspicious content was never found on this site within the past 90 days. […] Over the past 90 days, http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk did not appear to function as an intermediary for the infection of any sites. […] this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.”

    Google Webmaster Tools reveals no information about the problem despite them saying in several places that when malicious software is detected on a site it is reported here.

    If you have noticed anything further that could explain the problem, please do let me know.

    Not much you can do in an HRT. There are some outward signs of improvement but at this stage much of a driver’s development is going to be hard for us to spot from the outside. It’s what his race engineer and mechanics are saying about him that’s most important.

    I suspect he’ll be in a Toro Rosso next year.

    I met him earlier this year, he seems a decent chap. I wouldn’t claim to know him well but haven’t got anything bad to say about him.

    He’s a very good presenter, I like how extensively he uses social media to bring the fans into the coverage (though fewer tweets from him about football would be nice).

    can my PS3 co-op play with someone on an XBox or PC?

    I thought the console manufacturers themselves forbade that?
