Free Practice Friday again, already, and hopefully we will see more enjoyment today than we did this time last week. Actually, that's a given because we're not in the land of concrete. Anyway, here are some of the things we're discussing:

  • F1 Punter has taken a closer look at the possibility of a safety car interrupting proceedings on Sunday, and it's fair to say the chances are high. Apparently, there are bets to the contrary available though, so if that's your kind thing, stay tuned to the Punter.
  • Over on Axis of Oversteer, there's a video of how Spa used to be. The intro line says: "The guard rails were made of barbed wire and were meant to keep the cows off the road..." How things have changed?
  • Now looking at the paddock as they set and prepare for the weekend ahead, Brad Spurgeon has a post that gives props to the mechanics and how much they love their job, whilst the Renault blog has some insight into Thursday at Spa, including some beautiful photos showing what great weather it is right now.

That'll do it for now, but if you've got a spare few minutes and haven't already, check out our Flickr account. Photos are going up now from our exploits at the British GP. We're nothing if not timely. I'll see you in the comments.
