The journal of a Swiss-based motor-racing enthusiast.
There's been a lot of talk about MES getting the contract to make the standard CPUs for 2008 onwards.
Great to see that we're starting to inspire other people's forecats, but sadly, the combination of incompetence and alcohol fuelled sedation mean that I'll have to wait until tomorrow to write a proper appreciation.
On pitpass today, the editor puts forward an interesting scenario, comparing the political struggles of today with those of 1982.
Well, I'm back again after a couple of unexpected absences, so apologies to any of you that missed my ramblings over the past week or so.
I should have mentioned that the Gnome crystal ball was a little fuzzy on Friday. Definitely not running in full HDTV mode, which meant that some of my predictions were a little out.
Just like Saturday, Silverstone is warm and sunny on race day, quite a few of the spectators in the public enclosures are sporting pink shoulders in the classic British tradition. On the grid, Alonso is on pole next to Michael. Fernando's looking confident, as though he's carrying lots of fuel. Kimi and Fisico are on the second row with Rubens lining up fifth. Apparently there's not much need to brake for much of the circuit and so the car is much easier to drive for him. Jenson though, could only manage ninth, behind JPM, Webber and Massa.
I met up with the pitpass editor, Chris Balfe, for a few beers last night. I was working in London, so it seemed an ideal opportunity to catch up on all the F1 gossip.
Apologies for the lack of posts, but I've been out of the country and accessing the blog was just too slow.
I know that the media demand statements and opinions from sportsmen and women, and it seems the question on everybody's lips is 'When will Jenson Button win a Grand Prix'?
