Hey there folks! It’s the Wednesday before Easter! Did you enjoy the Grand Prix? I hope you did, I thought it was fantastic!  If you haven’t had a chance to yet, check out the latest debrief

In fact, there have been plenty of posts lately on Sidepodcast … for example the Tweets of the Week and Christine’s Rankings – but also Amy has written a great two part special on the Fanvision (formerly KangarooTV) device – well worth checking out!

You MUST also check out Jalopnik’s F1 review in Crayola – love the pics!  Perhaps they miss PicApp too?  One of the pics pokes a little bit of fun at Jenson Button’s pitlane mishap – so Andy Blackmore (the Spotter’s Guides guy) has made a helpful reminder for him :D

I must admit I thought Webber was the best driver of the Chinese GP, but BadgerGP disagrees and thinks it was Hamilton.  Close call I suppose.  If you have a subscription to Autosport, Adam Cooper has a great analysis of how Hamilton won the race – and also revealed that McLaren planned to do a two-stopper and switched during the race.  Mmm, strategy so good it’s gonna have to be blogged about ;)

At least with Vettel not winning we didn’t have to see the finger – although Anthony Davidson found a great mimic!

Couple of funny stories from WTF1 for you – the top 10 motorsport fails and F1’s got Talent.

Road & Track have a great article on Google Earth mapping racetracks from around the world.  If I remember rightly, Ollie did that too.  Shame he’s not blogging much these days…

Some non-F1 stuff for you now:

So that’s all from me.  I will be around in the comments today but I am going away to Berlin for Easter after that.  So if I don’t see you in the comments, have a great Easter and I will see you next week!
