Hi guys, thank you so much for all your kind words! We had a lovely time in Italy (where I occasionally checked in with the website but left running it to the highly capable Cari) and the wedding was just perfect.
The table names were “Copse”, “Becketts”, “Stowe”, “Club”, “Abbey”, “Luffield” and “Woodcote” – that was the only motor racing concession (apart from the timing of the wedding but that was practicality as much as anything else!)
We did consider “The Chain” for the first dance but the lyrics and tune really aren’t suitable for it! I’m a terrible dancer anyway so we wanted something simple for that.11th August 2010, 22:39 at 10:39 pm #136517
I’ve always had a soft spot for the McLaren F1. I must’ve been about 13 when it came out. The idea of a car with a central driving position blew my tiny teenage mind. Posters everywhere.4th August 2010, 17:25 at 5:25 pm #143020
Would anyone like to arrange some joint F1F sessions for when F1 2010 comes out? I’ll try to join in on some (not got a Gamertag or equivalent yet).4th August 2010, 17:23 at 5:23 pm #143151
If anything, it told us that ‘super-soft’ is something of a misnomer. Perhaps the Japanese for ‘not very’ was mis-translated as ‘super’?3rd August 2010, 21:56 at 9:56 pm #143143

The stars are aligning – backing from the Venezuelan government and he’s been good in GP2 this year, better than I expected after getting his backside handed to him by Nico Hülkenberg at ART last year.
Yes, Perez has been a bit unlucky but I don’t think you can argue Maldonado deserves to be anywhere other than leading the championship. Failing to pit after getting the black-and-orange flag last weekend was silly, though, and begging for a more serious penalty, though he seems to have got away with it.30th July 2010, 21:38 at 9:38 pm #142903
I’ve nothing negative to say except that I’d like to see him back in his car.
What I liked best was he kept dragging the topic of conversation back to what was going on on-track instead of all the peripheral stuff.28th July 2010, 23:01 at 11:01 pm #142386

You’ll find lots more ideas for what to read (and avoid) here:
I’d advise reading the Gerald Donaldson Gilles Villeneuve biography too. I’d especially recommend:
“The Racing Driver” – Denis Jenkinson
“Cars at Speed” – Robert Daley
“Memories of a Racing Man” – Jo Ramirez27th July 2010, 0:13 at 12:13 am #142758
What Senna did to Prost in 1990 and what Prost did to Senna the year before differed only by degrees. Senna’s move was obviously more dangerous – though let’s not pretend Prost’s was risk-free.
Once the FIA (or FISA as it was then) had allowed Prost to get away with taking Senna out to win the 1989 championship, they could hardly penalise Senna for doing the same 12 months later.27th July 2010, 0:10 at 12:10 am #142793
