    @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.

    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

    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.

    Great video, you are clearly very talented at video editing. Maybe you could make a video of Sebastian Vettel’s achievements, perhaps to the music of “The Imperial March” ( Star Wars) Make sure there’s plenty of shots of his legendary ‘finger’ victory celebration
    It would be very popular i’m sure

    Great spot, quick thinking by Hamilton but Alonso wise to it, wondered why they didn’t say much after the race.

    Thanks for posting, an interesting watch. It’s filmed around the start of the 1995 season and has input from most of the teams. The McLaren factory tour was particularly good
