Hey guys! I am writing this quite late after my friends have come over for dinner and I am watching the Man United game on delayed coverage – so I don’t have loads of links, but you should have enough to keep you going anyway ;)

So what’s been going on in the F1 world?  Well, considering it’s the Tuesday after a Grand Prix, there isn’t too much news – so today we will have more blog links, which is more awesome anyway!

So that’s all from me – I hope you have a great Wednesday…. my colleague has convinced me to go running during the middle of the day tomorrow, so wish me luck and I will let you know how it goes ;)

    went looking for the crayola pictures and read this headline:

    New USF1 facility to be called "Circuit of the Americas"

    i frickin hope somebody missed a space in that title!

  • Bassano12/04/2011 at 23:13

    Did we know that Adam Hay-Nicholls F1 page in Metro is called F1 Debrief?

    I think he must listen to the show as it took him until Tuesday to write up the race report

    didn't used to be. we can't own that title though, just like leo can't own 'this week in...'.

    Yeah, I get that. Just never realised before, probably cos I never read the Metro anymore

    Really not liking the F1 Video edit page now.

    Not viewable in Safari, way too jerky in FF4 and no full screen mode :(

  • Alianora La Canta12/04/2011 at 23:16

    Did we know that Adam Hay-Nicholls F1 page in Metro is called F1 Debrief?

    Yes - it's been called that a while, and it's always on the Tuesday (presumably due to space issues on Mondays).

  • Bassano12/04/2011 at 23:17

    Yes - it's been called that a while, and it's always on the Tuesday (presumably due to space issues on Mondays).

    This isn't a Peter Windsor operation. If it was, they would of laid a quarter of a mile strip of track, film a promo on it, then discover that it wasn't up to FIA regulation, and THEN realized that they only had enough to lay down another ten feet of asphalt.

    I didn't see Carlos Reutemann with a suitcase full of Argentine pesos either. If I've learned anything, it isn't a legitimate U.S. effort unless some other country's money is involved.

    Sorry, it is still a really, really sore spot for me. It's one of the reasons why I stopped blogging and haven't been as active as I used to.

  • Kai12/04/2011 at 23:50

    Mine 'next tweet' according to that site is...

  • Alianora La Canta12/04/2011 at 23:50

    Planes, Trains, Automobiles and gold Daily: 12th March 2011 A Grand Prix screwed up a new car Schumacher.

    "Evidently there's a post about random transportation methods, today's daily and Michael having a broken car to contend with for next race."

    The next tweet for me is one that is coherant but hopefully untrue:

    "I didn't help but it's understandable."

  • Kai12/04/2011 at 23:51

    Planes, Trains, Automobiles and gold Daily: 12th March 2011 A Grand Prix screwed up a new car Schumacher.

    If you keep hitting "get your next tweet", you keep getting different tweets. The third semi-coherant one for me was:

    "You're welcome. When I can talk about Paul in turn. Point well taken! ..."

    And finally I got the very simple:

    @Steven Roy or anyone.

    I need your sagely advice. I've come up with an outline of an a "US is cursed in Formula One" essay. Am I missing anything?

    - Hill wins a world title under the dark cloud of Wolfgang Von Tripps death.

    - Dan Gurney can't keep his car together to led a serious charge in 1967.

    - Cevert dies and Wakins Glen becomes to dangerous to race.

    - Mark Donohue's death kills Penske's interest in Formula One.

    - Michael Andretti wins a title under the dark cloud of Ronnie Peterson's death.

    - Bernie and Chris Pook argue over money and ruin the Long Beach race.

    - Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas are all half effort grands prix with surfaces that fall apart.

    - Danny Sullivan and Michael Andretti don't live up their potential like they did in CART.

    - Phoenix is chosen over Laguna Seca to host the USGP in 1986.

    - Indy 2003 & 2005.

    - USF1.

    Did I miss anything?

    I am not sure about Scott Speed. Is it really bad luck if the driver really isn't good enough talent wise? With Michael Andretti and Danny Sullivan, I always felt that they were good enough but didn't take it seriously and squandered an opportunity. To me at least, they gave American drivers a bad wrap with F1 teams that they really haven't recover from.

  • jpancoast13/04/2011 at 00:19

    I get that sometimes drivers have to think like that, but normally they've proven themselves a bit first. And plenty of other US drivers aren't like that at all so it isn't an anti-American comment..

    Dan Brunell 13/04/2011 at 01:11:[email protected] Roy or anyone.

    I need your sagely advice. I've come up with an outline of an a "US is cursed in Formula One" essay. Am I missing anything?

    - Hill wins a world title under the dark cloud of Wolfgang Von Tripps death.

    - Dan Gurney can't keep his car together to led a serious charge in 1967.

    - Cevert dies and Wakins Glen becomes to dangerous to race.

    - Mark Donohue's death kills Penske's interest in Formula One.

    - Michael Andretti wins a title under the dark cloud of Ronnie Peterson's death.

    - Bernie and Chris Pook argue over money and ruin the Long Beach race.

    - Dallas, Detroit, Las Vegas are all half effort grands prix with surfaces that fall apart.

    - Danny Sullivan and Michael Andretti don't live up their potential like they did in CART.

    - Phoenix is chosen over Laguna Seca to host the USGP in 1986.

    - Indy 2003 & 2005.

    - USF1.

    Did I miss anything?

    Steven Roy 13/04/2011 at 01:16:30I guess you could add going from two races a season in a twelve race season to none out of 20

    Two races in a season, Steven and Dan, In 1982, America had three races - The U.S. Grand Prix West at Long Beach, The Detroit Grand Prix in Detroit and the Caesar's Palace Grand Prix in Los Vegas in a 16 race season. When you factor in the Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, that's one forth of the F1 season in North America....

    As for curses, well, 1982 was F1's most cursed year. Caesar's Palace was in a parking lot of a casino so that seems unimpressive of the get go. Not too sure where in Detroit the F1 was run back then but it was not the nice part of Detroit, that's for sure. And Long Beach was just to last another year.

    I need your sagely advice. I've come up with an outline of an a "US is cursed in Formula One" essay. Am I missing anything?

    Yes. As if motorsports in the USA didn't already have enough of a country & western association in the minds of its general public, Formula 1 has booked its return in ... Texas. Yee-haw.

  • Amy13/04/2011 at 03:28

    it seems like just yesterday I came up with the plan to see a man about a dog to try and win the competition. I can't believe it actually happened. Waiting 2 hours for them to open the fanzone seems so worth it

    he asked me to send a photo to go along with the announcement so i sent one from malaysia. then he asked me to send one from melbourne in case it enrages the other contestants that someone who is already a globe trotting gp fan won.

    Anyway, the boat has docked. I'm just going to chase up the WRC ops manager to find out how they're going to change the schedule, because obviously they now have less than 24 hours to set up something that usually takes four days...

    Interesting, The Victory team from here in Dubai are going to enter the WRC

    http://sport360.com/component/content/article/94-all-news/86321-victory-set-for-wrc-bid

    They are a powerboat racing team. They almost killed off Class 1 in the mid 90s by dominating it so much. Dont know how they have ended up on land

  • Stuart C13/04/2011 at 11:17

    is there any special reason why the logistical arrangements are so last minute ?

    Yup. Original plan was to ship by sea through Suez Canal and land in southern Jordan. Then in January, when Egypt went a bit nuts, they decided not to risk Suez. They had to cancel the shipping arrangements and start again.

    The alternative route was through Syria but then that went a bit nuts as well.

    So this boat going from Trieste to Haifa became the only option. It was delayed on its inbound journey so it set off a day late, the suffered engine trouble in the Med.

  • F1Wolf13/04/2011 at 11:22

    Then in January, when Egypt went a bit nuts, they decided not to risk Suez. They had to cancel the shipping arrangements and start again.

    it shows that it may be good idea to stay away from the region that is going nuts for a while ... and F1 still keeps the idea of Bahrain GP happening this year hanging in the air ...

    They are jumping the gun a tad because the official decision hasn't actually been made yet.

    I find it a bit silly. on one hand it affects both Trulli and Kovi in the same way. But for a team that is trying to catch up with the back of the midfield and needs quality track time to extract the best out of the car and set it up for the race it does not make sense to sacrifice an entire practice session ...

    It's odd, but I just don't think Trulli will be there in 2012 - it leads me to think they've got three drivers that they are evaluating for a single seat

    I suppose they have a very strict marking sheet and you were missing the link 3(x+y) = 3(2)?

  • RubberGoat13/04/2011 at 12:08

    I suppose they have a very strict marking sheet and you were missing the link 3(x+y) = 3(2)?

    I used to mark maths assignments and we were given a script with very specific instructions...

  • Kathi13/04/2011 at 12:09

    I really don't see what needs explaining.

    I would write:

    x+y = 2 | *3

    3x + 3y = 6

    But I've been taught to be very thorough

  • Alison13/04/2011 at 12:09

    I suppose they have a very strict marking sheet and you were missing the link 3(x+y) = 3(2)?

    I didn't lose marks on the bits he's commented against. It's made me really frustrated reading it. It's supposed to be uni level assignments and you want me to write a comment at the side explaining v v basic algebra.

    Hi Leigh, all ready for the weekend? How is your Italian?

    I'm still a little surprised at how some unnameable F3 drivers prove to be difficult to get a hold of.

    In the immortal words of the sportscar photographer John Brooks, "Be nice to me on the way up, sonny, because I'll still be here when you're on the way down..."

    By the way, I'm finally going to get to see Sunday's IndyCar / Indy Lights race's this evening.

    Admittedly, I watched the first 12 laps of the Lights race and had to switch it off. Between Josef Newgarden instigating a ridiculously dumb move while the commentators blamed a guy about seven cars back, despite having being shown 6 replays up close in HD.

    Once a safety car was brought out for a car parked safely by the side of the road, I decided a break was necessary.

    As much as I love Indy racing, their safety car procedures are at times, overly safe.

    BOOO NASA

    I have seen some of these but not all of them before. I can't believe they have not stopped work on landing pad 39B yet. When the last mission to Hubble was completed there was no more need to have a lifeboat shuttle on standby. If people get stuck on the ISS with a faulty shuttle its no big deal. So NASA started converting 39B for the Ares/Constellation program which was to succeed the shuttle but has since been cancelled so why not stop work converting that pad?

    What if the Soviets had gotten to the moon first? Would we be on Mars by now? Would the cold war have spread to the moon?

    I don't follow the logic of his argument. America was in a race so it won then stopped. The Soviets thought they were colonising space......but they lost the race so they stopped? His logic is flawed.

    I think had both of them landed on the moon within a couple of months of each other there would have been many more missions and rival moon bases as neither could have stopped without handing the moon to the enemy. It is a real shame that the Soviets did not carry on and put a man on the moon. Imagine even if they had done it around the time of Apollo 17. I can only believe that 18-20 would have been uncancelled in double quick time.

    Once you have rival bases established they have to grow and compete with each other. THat is just human nature particularly in the cold war mentality. The moon then almost automatically becomes the base to launch Mars missions. Imagine instead of Apollo-Soyuz then shuttle-Mir dockings which laid the foundations for ISS if you had established communities on the moon it seems only logical that there would have been a joint mission fro the moon and that could only have gone to an asteroid or Mars.

    I was in high school in Indiana at the time. We Americans were realizing that the money for space exploration, and for the Vietnam war, wasn't growing on trees. As entertaining as the space race was, a lot of the U.S. public started to favor other spending priorities.

  • Steven Roy13/04/2011 at 19:31

    I think that was where Christine discovered there were missions before Apolloquote>You're joking, right? Mercury, Gemini, ... ;-)

    Nope. One of my major complaints about motor racing is that it does nothing with its history and the same applies to space travel. I think most people Christine's age may have heard of Neil Armstrong and know nothing else about space travel. I have lost count of the people I have mentioned the ISS to and they think I a winding them up. Space travel has been ignored for the last 20 years other than the 2 shuttle disasters. Most people just don't get it at all. A few years ago I showed my mother the shuttle flying over through binoculars and she mentioned it to one of her friends. A couple of days later she got a phone call from another friend asking if it was true there was a station and that with binoculars you could see the men working outside it.

    Space travel needs to be taught more than it is

  • Steven Roy13/04/2011 at 19:33

    I think that was where Christine discovered there were missions before Apolloquote>You're joking, right? Mercury, Gemini, ... ;-)

    I have to keep reminding myself that when I speak of the names and events that were all around me in younger days, I might as well be talking about the Lincoln administration to those younger around me. No offense meant! :-)

    I understand totally. I mentioned Barry Sheene racing Kenny Roberts to Gavin last night and he told me he wasn't born then. So unfair.

    hehe I just asked Dom, his reaction was one of confusion;

    'i didn't even know there was a new version out.. but erm.. the old version was complicated enough, why do they need a new one.. i dread to think how complicated the new one is'

    :)

  • Mr C13/04/2011 at 22:29

    ooooo. thats not what I saw, but maybe i made it up. I thought there was a dual-lens thing in one box. Still, they are a great little setup. I almost bought one for my water sport adventures

    you should.

  • Mr C13/04/2011 at 22:29

    'i didn't even know there was a new version out.. but erm.. the old version was complicated enough, why do they need a new one.. i dread to think how complicated the new one is'

    hehehe. the new one is a bit more basic. what does he use then?

    You should show him Windows Movie Maker :)

    ....actually no, I'm sure he can find far better comedy

  • lou13/04/2011 at 22:31

    oooh, yes. was wondering what your flatmates thought of the new final cut pro. if they're even interested in it?

    hehe i think they're interested, as they use it for their digital films.. but yeah i think dom's reaction was more one of dread than excitement :)

  • Mr C13/04/2011 at 22:32

    it's a bargain.

  • lou13/04/2011 at 22:33

    hehehe. the new one is a bit more basic. what does he use then?

    He uses final cut pro all of the time.. but apparently Joe uses Premier Pro..

    Dom just says it was hard to get your head round at first. he's happy it may be a bit more easy to use :)

  • lou13/04/2011 at 22:33

    it's a bargain.

    how much is it? Dom refuses to believe it'll be a bargin :)

  • lou13/04/2011 at 22:33

  • Mr C13/04/2011 at 22:33

  • Steven Roy13/04/2011 at 22:36

  • paul13/04/2011 at 22:36
