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

I saw it and I thought it was handled entirely correctly. As soon as I saw Castroneves staying right on the restart I thought he’d either have to give up the place or get a penalty.
IndyCar’s rules say you’re not allowed to defend your position like that. We’ve seen them enforce it before and Castroneves should know because he was on the rough end of it at Long Beach a couple of years ago.
I can’t understand what all the fuss is about from people criticising the penalty. It’s odd that it’s termed “blocking” by some, because it isn’t “blocking” in the strict sense, but all the same it’s clear what the intent of the rule is and we’ve seen it applied in the past.26th July 2010, 23:55 at 11:55 pm #142772

It was fine but very risky. Not a move you’d make at the start of the race.21st July 2010, 21:33 at 9:33 pm #142254
Haven’t they already got a logo? And isn’t it one of the most distinctive, emotive and well-recognised logos in the world?
I think we all know the rationale behind this unnecessary new design – and why it hasn’t appeared on their F1 car…16th July 2010, 22:10 at 10:10 pm #135116
I try to watch as much GP2 and IndyCar as possible – though it depends on whether Eurosport and Sky Sports respectively are showing them live.
Eurosport are showing far too few live GP2 races this year, but at least it’s an improvement over the dark days of Setanta.
Thankfully Sky Sports has given up trying to get people to like NASCAR and we seem to be getting more live IndyCar this year.
I usually catch the BTCC and a bit of WTCC, though the latter is by far the less exciting and interesting. I usually get to one BTCC weekend per year, I was at Oulton this year.
I’m going to my second British F3 race of the year this weekend.
I see the occasional Renault World Series, GP2 and F2 race on TV. The only regular F1 support race I make a point of not watching is Porsche Supercup – I find it slow and dull.
I watched a lot of the Le Mans 24 Hours. Wasn’t half as good as last year’s race though. I’m fascinated to see what becomes of this sports prototype world championship, though, I could really get into that especially if the petrol cars can compete.
I’d watch F3 Euroseries, DTM and Auto GP but they’re on channels I don’t have.
I wish I had the same fondness for the WRC I did a decade ago but I just don’t. And bikes fail to move me too.16th July 2010, 9:56 at 9:56 am #142625
Yeah I mentioned that on Twitter yesterday. Spot the similarities with the 2008 British Motor Show poster:
