    One thing that annoyed me was when Vettel crossed the line massively ahead, they kept focusing on the fireworks even though there was still all sorts of stuff going on on-track.

    Sounds done to me

    JA: Christian Horner has told us we will know by the end of the European season who is gonna be sitting in your car next season. Who would you like to replace you?

    MW: I think the decision is made, so ah, I think ah, yeah, I think we all know who it is, ah, and I’m happy with that decision, so ah, yeah it’s good for him ah and good for Australia.

    Mark has multiple instances of “Kini” on his shirt – coincidence I hope so (for Ricciardo’s sake)!

    Did anyone else notice Mitch Evans making a little cameo in the audience behind Clarkson during Webber’s interview?

    Yep, he also got a photo with The Stig https://twitter.com/mitchevans_/status/362566023968325635/photo/1

    Spotted a Ferrari truck near the Mercedes Toorak dealership today (few km from Albert Park) which is weird because they don’t send out the transporters for fly away races AFAIK (and its still over a month away).

    Average force over the duration of impact with the tyre wall is (mass) x (change in velocity) / (duration of impact). Hard to tell but say he lost at max 50% of his speed when he hit the wall and he hit the wall for 0.5 sec, gives 286,000 Newtons of force acting on the truck by the wall, which is like 5 trucks standing nose to tail in an upright column (5.3g). All this and he is still moving at 95km/h.

    Was the site down about 12 hours ago (so about 3am London time)? I tried to access it and all I got was a Apache sever error page.

    Yep I agree with Sam that it’s Bergwerk from the Nürburgring. Fun track on Forza 4 also!

    @damonsmedley

    Well OneHD are replaying it 10.30pm tonight if you’re curious. I’m just interested in the crazy half-time entertainment that’s all over the news.

    @shoemaker Not quite, but I commute into Melbourne for uni. Regarding your other post about what to do in Melbourne, here’s a website that give you a few ideas, but firstly I reckon you should go on the City Circle tram, which is a free tour on a tram that loops the city and points out all the tourist stuff. Also, you might wanna check out the MCG, there’s a sport’s museum there that’s mainly cricket and AFL, but I also imagine the tours there would be good.

    (This isn’t really on topic but anyway…) Out of Melbourne, there’s the Healesville Sanctuary, which is good for aussie animals, and around Healesville/Yarra Valley itself is a wine region. People also go to the Penguin Parade on Phillip Island, Phillip Island GP track is worth a look, it’s where MotoGP race in October. Then along the SE coast (the Gippsland region), Wilsons Promontory, Ninety-Mile Beach, Buchan caves. I haven’t yet done the coast up to Sydney and Brisbane but there’s heaps of beaches and stuff the whole way. Other suggestions, Canberra- parliament house, money mint, few museums; Blue Mountains national park east of Sydney is good to see and the Bathurst 1000 track further east of Sydney (a decent drive), it’s actually a public road and you can drive around it (albeit at a slow 60km/h). There’s also a motor racing museum there, mostly about V8s. These are just some places I’ve been, but there will be heaps of places to see along the way.

    Oh yeah, if you’ve got time, say 3-4 weeks, Tasmania is worth it, well I was 7 when I went there but my parents loved it. There’s a ship/car ferry (that would take your car & camper) called the Spirit of Tasmania that takes a night (or day) departing from Melbourne to Tassie.

    Here’s a quick Google map of the places above (and others can add to it): http://g.co/maps/vsnke
