- Some F1 news first. Nick Fry has decided to take inspiration from McLaren’s comeback last year and reckons Mercedes can still win the championship. He says: “The performance of McLaren last year from a miserable performance to great performances at the end shows what can be done if you have the resources to do it”. Quite.
- It has been confirmed that Hamilton’s dramatic retirement from the Spanish Grand Prix was caused by a faulty wheel rim. As it happens, Christine has written an excellent discussion thread for you on the topic. Spookily, it’s the same corner of the car that failed at the same Grand Prix in 2008 for Heikki Kovalainen. Now we know what failed, can we please be told why?
- In other F1 news, the kerbs have been raised at Monaco, Ferrari are investigating why the car does not suit Massa and everybody wants Bridgestone to stay in F1 next year. Except I’d like Kumho to be the tyre supplier, so I can regularly shout out ‘RELEASE THE KUMHOOOOO!’ - although, I don't think they make a giant mythical sea monster...
- Finally, here’s something a little different for you. As a Data Analyst, my goal is to make the information given to me as accessible as I can visually. Therefore I love to read blogs such as David McCandless’s ‘Information is Beautiful’ blog – check out the latest Infographical Morsels he has posted. Lovely.
That’s all from me – sorry if it’s a little short, but I’m a bit tired after going for a run through the park tonight (it’s the first time I have run since I moved house and I really enjoyed it).
Have a great day and see you in the comments!
