Hey guys, hope you are all having a great week. Spring is here, the days are getting longer and starting to warm up a little. Also, we have the Malaysian Grand Prix to look forward to this week! I normally quite enjoy this particular race, as the weather always throws in a random variable or two. Amy and Pamela are flying there right now and Amy has a great forecast for the race too ;) Why not check out BadgerGP’s top 5 Malaysian Grands Prix? Which one is your favourite?
So what links have I got for you this week then?
Silverstone had a media day for their new pit lane complex and it looks really cool. BBC F1 has a great article about how the developments are really transforming Silverstone and that they have a solid foundation to keep the Grand Prix past their current contract.
Sauber now have a web store with a clothing range – steady on, RG ;)
Virgin have said that they cannot update their car until the Turkish Grand Prix – which is a bit of a worry as they are close to the 107% cut off point right now…
Speaking of quick qualifying laps, Damon Smedley has overlaid Martin Brundle’s commentary of Vettel’s pole lap in Australia with his own lap from F1 2010. Looks pretty neat!
Joe ponders the idea of switching Bahrain with Qatar… could be interesting?
Here’s some info on the Safety Car rules for this year, courtesy of F1.com…
How about some great F1 photos? Christine has a great F1 Big Picture Bundle for the season opener, BadgerGP took some at the Donington Collection and I found a couple of great links to Lego F1 photos on Flickr.
Sniff Petrol seems to think they have seen a striking resemblance to Alonso in this leaflet… but Mrs. Goat thinks he looks more like Sir Sean Connery…
Remember PJ Tierney and his awesome Alternative F1 Programme covers? Well, he’s made a mock up of all them together and wants to gauge interest in it if it was offered for sale. WANT. Also, check out this classic take on modern movie posters. Love the Star Wars ones…
Do you find 'Guess Who' too easy? Well why not try out this fun interpretation of the rules?
Some Sidepodspace now… some great pics from the early days of spaceflight.
I love the Bloodhound SSC Project – and Nick found a great article about it. Did you know it uses a Cosworth F1 engine as a fuel pump?
Apparently Arnie is going to be starring in a new cartoon called ‘The Governator’. Please. I love Arnie movies but this is too cheesy even for me!
I saw an article today for something called a Möbius Gear – I have no idea how this works and it blows my mind :)
What’s been going on around the blogs?
- Leigh has been lamenting about safety,
- Alianora has been practising proper prose,
- Lukeh has been remembering a great rivalry and finding old videos,
- Neil Hudson has been comparing the speeds of BTCC teams (with graphs!)
- Christine has been thinking on her feet,
- I have written about Speedy Saubers and Fantasy Racers.
- Pat has posted the scores for his Too Much Racing Game. Hope you're playing along too!
- RG is sad about Spurs. Poor chap, it was a bad night for him. I'm still smarting about Inter too...
- Bassano, Janna, Kai and Scott had a great meet up in Boston, USA. Here's Bassano's Pics...
Well that’s all from me. Hope you all have a great day, see you in the comments and have fun :D
