    I was thinking today… don’t remember seeing either of the Manor cars all weekend on the BBC highlights. Did anyone see them on the full coverage? I know they were last in the race but didn’t see them get lapped by the front runners either, perhaps Bernie has refused to give them coverage?

    I always thought Brundle and Blundell sounded similar. And they both raced for Brabham/Ligier at the same time.

    Edit: just realised posted above haha

    There’s a 40% code for new Sky customers on Moneysavingexpert.com: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/cheaper-sky-cheap-cable?utm_source=MSE_Newsletter&utm_medium=oneliner-one&utm_term=03-Feb-15-lt&utm_campaign=shopping&utm_content=3#skycode

    Works out around £27 a month with the F1 channel, not bad. Only stays at that price for 12 months but if you cancel after then Sky will usually try and tempt you back with a similar discount. Code must be used by February 19th.

    @keithcollantine Yes I did get a couple earlier in the season and they did work, I think some of them were promo codes from packs of lager that people were re-selling. There was an offer in Argos for 5@ £20 a while back so I stockpiled. The other good thing is you can stream to two devices at the same time so you can go halves with a friend/relative. I’m sure they will close that loophole though!

    24 hour Sky Sports passes can be had for even cheaper on Ebay at around £4-5. I’m loathe to give Sky any money but I can justify around £5 to watch a race live, it was certainly worth it for the Hungarian GP :-) If you time the 24 hour code right you can usually catch the full qualifying re-run on Saturday too. The streaming quality is very good as well, on par with the satellite broadcast.

    Williams have secured a sponsorship deal with Martini according to James Allen:

    Up until Belgium, Hamilton was considered a contender for the title. It seems his decline in results has coincided with the decline in performance of the Mercedes. I don’t think it’s fair to say he gives up easily, Silverstone this year was a great comeback drive from last. But I do think he is looking towards next year now and perhaps not pushing like mad if the car cannot win races.

    I reckon McLaren might pull something out of the bag! They’ve had a bad year and will be fighting back next year

    Button
    Hamilton
    Raikkonen

    Mercedes
    McLaren
    Ferrari

    I seem to remember James Allen saying Jenson Button would be a contender for the title in 2009, even before the first test. A lot of people put bets on and made a pretty penny

    I’d like to think this is just a rumour and that the teams would object to it. Seem to remember thinking the same last time around though…

    I just watched ‘Rush – A look inside’ on Youtube and noticed the original Marlboro sponsorship on the McLaren but it’s been censored/covered up on the new trailer, wonder which version we will get in the UK?

    on the topic of driver diets, i was watching some of the early 2000’s season reviews, it baffles me how Montoya could drive the cars being overweight. I mean he wasn’t fat but certainly not lean like todays drivers, and the physical exertion required in F1 is immense, he must have had a lot of stamina.
