Hey guys.  Hope you enjoyed the Grand Prix and that you are having a great week.  I certainly enjoyed the Grand Prix and I think there were many interesting things coming out of it.

I know you have probably read about the Grand Prix already, but have you seen it in Crayola?  Or seen F1 stars Photoshopped as Star Wars characters?  Have you also checked out Bruno Mantovani’s excellent Williams and HRT cartoons? :D

Have you listened to the Debrief yet? Checked Tweets of the Week? What about Christine’s Rankings?  After that, have you checked out other F1 podcasts?

Guys, Amy needs your help – she’s the world’s biggest Heikki and Team Lotus fan and she wants to win a trip to the Korean Grand Prix.  All you have to do is ‘Like’ the picture she posted on Facebook.  Read more here and DO IT if you haven’t already – and if you have, pester your off/online friends to do so!

Apparently Kimi Raikkonen is going to supplement his WRC season by racing in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series – that’s like the 3rd Division of NASCAR where Piquet Jr. races.  No, I have no idea why either.  But now we will probably see this interview for real ;)

Remember how Jenson Button drove a McLaren F1 car around Bathurst last week?  Well here is the lap in full HD-goodness!

Lukeh and Lou went to Mercedes Benz World and wrote an excellent post about it!  I would love to see the Brooklands banking.  Leigh wrote a post about GT1’s at Yas Marina, PatW found a great online Sportscar Magazine and has posted his TMRG Scores for the week.  RG wonders how biased the BBC were in their F1 coverage and Christine likes Desert Island Discs.

Speaking of Sportscars, one of the bigger teams has a blog post about the massive fail in the Sebring coverage.  Too right I say!

Finally a couple of video game posts for you: the first is about where video game bad guys come from (hint: non-English speaking countries!) and the second is a chronicle of classic arcade game deaths – which pretty much sums up my childhood video game library!

Well that’s all from me – have a great day and see you in the comments!
