This is it, my final daily post before I head off into the sunset... for a few days. I am leaving you in the capable hands of Mr C, and that should be scary for us all. No mention of pandas, or Franck, or Le Seb. How will you all cope? Oh well, here's what we're discussing at the moment:

  • Bernie reckons McLaren could get a ban, especially considering they are "up in court" for the second time on a similar charge. James Allen also suggests that as the hearing is just before the British GP, it would make for some spectacular headlines. Oh dear.
  • Speaking of the British race, Donington Park is due for another FIA inspection soon, and track boss Simon Gillett says this nugget: "When you work with the likes of Tilke to run your FIA submissions and track safety, you have got to say that you are betting on the right horses." Oh dear.
  • Finally, we are all still pondering this Renault Roadshow crash, mostly because is it even possible to go so vastly off, seconds after starting in what can only be described as a straight line? Looks like a scary accident, but how was it even possible? Oh dear.

With those happy thoughts, I bid you adieu. I'll still be popping up in the comments from time to time, and I may post the odd picture to drop.io, just to make sure you don't forget me. Therefore, I will sign off with: Mr C will see you in the comments.
