    Good grief, Bushy Park Barbados! I actually drove the circuit in a hired mini-moke about fifteen years ago. On a boring Sunday afternoon, no one about, and the circuit was only protected by a wooden hurdle which I pulled aside and drove in. The place was a right old mess even then. The track surface had broken up completely on the entrance to one of the right handers and was sort of protected by white hash lines and traffic cones. Don’t know what it’s like now or what it will become.

    I’ve copied this para from the BBC site
    “It was understood Pirelli would no longer conduct safety testing on the track and that the testing would be done on a rig, before durability and performance testing was conducted on a circuit. “
    I don’t quite understand. Does that mean that the teams will not be involved in the Bahrain test anymore, but that there will be another ‘circuit test’ for the tyres before the begining of the 2014 season??

    I just watched it. It all looks very exciting and I wonder how compromised the ride height and suspension will have to be if all the races are over temporary city street circuits.
    Is the entire series being sponsored by Renault, or is it just that particular car?

    @Jodrell (love your name!).
    Well yes, except that homosexuals aren’t as visible a minority as black people in Europe or even disabled people. We tend to blend in a bit and keep our collective mouths shut.
    Last week we had Pride Parade in Brighton and personally I winced at the overt and offensive nature of some of the floats; we’re not all like that. And that’s what gives homosexuality a bad name. we don’t need to advertise or promote, we just need acceptance and (to be honest) to be ignored comnpletely. So the Russian law against the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ should be irrelevant.
    But what’s really interesting is that the IOC and M. Jacques Rogge is calling for a clarification of the situation in Russia in respect of homosexuals. See here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-23630868. Now, just suppose that he doesn’t get the answers and assurances he wants, and for one reason or other, the Winter Olympics are pulled. What would happen to the Grand Prix? Personally, I don’t think the venue would be completed and the track wouldn’t be built. What do you think?

    According to this report
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/motorsport/9917944/Electric-cars-to-race-through-streets-of-London-in-Formula-E-Grand-Prix.html
    London is going to have a Formula E street race! I wonder if it will be in the Olympic Park?

    @journeyer. Brawn to Williams – that would be lovely symmetry wouldn’t it? Maybe even with Norbert Haug as ‘special advisor’! Williams with Mercedes engines?
