Hello everyone, and a happy Bastille Day if you happen to be French (or particularly revolutionary). A very good excuse for wine, cheese, croissants, or pain au chocolat as Amy had.

I trust you are well. Sorry I missed my last Daily but I was on holiday and forgot what day it was - thanks to Supersub Steven for covering me. So.. where are we?

- A new F1 Debrief was released yesterday, do give it a listen.

- If you were waiting for the iPad edition of the F1 Minute app, wait no more! If you go there now you can hear what Karun Chandhok thinks about Vijay Mallya. Sometimes I think Karun should just take control of all of racing.

- Christine's booky wook is now available on iBooks. This stuff is alien to me so I've gotta admit I have no idea why that's different to what I bought before, it adds a menu and presumably opens it up to more people and more formats, and choice is a good thing!

Speaking of booky wooks, Stuart has written a fantastic post about Scuderia Ferrari's first win in the World Championship, which was at Silverstone in 1951, and it features excellent photographs from his current book. It comes as a nice change because the Silverstone race most focussed-on in this era is the Championship-beginning Grand Prix of a year earlier.

I'm not sure I like the term booky wook any more.

If you aren't familiar with Marshall Pruett of SpeedTV.com not only is he one of best motorsport journalists around, he is also a comedic genius. Take a read of his Rewind post for the Toronto IndyCar race, if nothing else read the part after the poll, and the award for Golden Bowling Ball over on page 2. Page 2 also features the Benny Hill highlights video which is hilarious, watch it if you haven't already (note there is one brief (funny) swear in it). I sometimes think the 'Benny Hill music on a racing video' gag is overused but this race is just perfect for it, especially the editing here.

Leigh has been mega-busy with his definitive Silverstone race report, as well as a little bit of news about the future of GP2 and the GP2 Asia Series.

I'll have race start times up on my blog tomorrow night, and don't forget to enter my little game (hopefully writing this here means I won't need to send reminders..?).

Elsewhere..

Did you see these gloves? Imogen Heap is trying to make music without using any instruments other than a pair of gloves with an accelerometer, gyroscope and more bits of tech all built into them, linked to a computer. Sounds and volume are controlled by hand gestures. Sadly this article doesn't have any video (or audio) of it actually working and I can't find any elsewhere either, I can't wait to see them in action.

Speaking of music, the Manics have released some live tracks from the iTunes Festival, but as you can imagine from the festival name, they are only available through iTunes. Hopefully they won't be edited for swearing as the live show apparently was.

I like to talk about the racing happening each weekend but as there isn't a lot among the 'top' series I'll just quickly mention them here:

MotoGP at Sachsenring; WTCC/AutoGP at Donington Park; GT1 at Paul Ricard; NASCAR at New Hampshire;

I think I'll be picking MotoGP. I nearly bought tickets for Donington but it is quite a long way to go for a depleted touring car field dominated by one team. In any case, instead of racing I may well be watching The Open Championships, for which you'll want to check RG's blog to hear about a new young talent in golf.

Enjoy your day, and have a great weekend.

    that's exactly it. two different standards, two different approaches, but the same content.

    vhs vs. betamax in book form. don't know who will win.

    i personally prefer kindle because it works on more devices, but ibooks is considerably more technologically advanced. place your bets...

    jean michel jarre did that in the 80's, using lasers. i guess gloves are a bit cheaper :)

    Aye - it's hardly a new idea to be honest. A quick nod to John Cage would suffice if you can take it.

    Notionally I'd say the one with more reach.. but I don't trust Apple not to throw them out.

    There is a rumour doing the winds of the wild web that Lotus may be doing a deal with red bull for KERS

  • Leigh O'Gorman14/07/2011 at 10:33

  • F1Wolf14/07/2011 at 10:33

    There is a rumour doing the winds of the wild web that Lotus may be doing a deal with red bull for KERS

    hm ... if it is only for the rest of the season it may make some sense as they already have some stuff like gearbox from RB. but their KERS partner for future is GE, isn't it ?

  • F1Wolf14/07/2011 at 10:34

    I think they have their own not-so-Mark-friendly KERS :-)

  • Nick (@Twiger)14/07/2011 at 10:35

    I though Red Bull got their KERS from Renault

    Its from the same developer, but i think red bulls is a lot smaller and only has about 70% of the permitted power output

    Thats what i thought. If its true its a short term fix.

    They supposedly have an upgrade package for hungary, maybe this is part of it?

    Lots of big power tracks after then

  • Nick (@Twiger)14/07/2011 at 10:36

  • F1Wolf14/07/2011 at 10:39

    Thats what i thought. If its true its a short term fix.

    well, given that they are often (not always) just that KERS away from the mix ahead of them it would make sense. and even if it would not result in points they could still gain some knowledge for their 2012 car development

  • Mav14/07/2011 at 10:42

    AbuDhabi and Hungary are surprisingly comparable actually

    yes, dull races both :-)

    Under the new rules tilke tracks are where its at!

    Hungrary needs a reworking though, maybe cut out 3-4 corners and make the whole track wider.

    Yas will have 2-3 corners changed if this year isnt great

  • Mav14/07/2011 at 10:46

    More Valencia, less Silverstone? ;-)

  • Nick (@Twiger)14/07/2011 at 10:48

    More Valencia, less Silverstone? ;-)

    Thats a street circuit :)

    If we divide the season into "Historical" Street & "Tilke" tracks we can see the new rules have worked at the historical tracks, made a big impact at the tilke ones but not been so good at street tracks

  • F1Wolf14/07/2011 at 10:48

    More Valencia, less Silverstone? ;-)

    I don't know. Silverstone also managed to provide some not so exciting races in the recent past.

    then look at Brazil or Montreal , not matter what rules, cars, weather, the races are almost always exciting ...

  • Mav14/07/2011 at 10:48

    Yas will have 2-3 corners changed if this year isnt great

    they should change 2-3

    ... and 5-8, 11-14, 17-19 and 21

    it's trulli train-tastic

  • Nick (@Twiger)14/07/2011 at 10:52

    That bit was supposed to be a street circuit, but they changed their minds...

    The bigest problem for me is the angle of the chicane at the end of the long straight, and the existance of the chicane at the end of the one whoch follows it.

    Fix those too and it would flow a lot better

  • Mav14/07/2011 at 10:55

    Fix those too and it would flow a lot better

    but the street circuit part is all a bit mickey mouse - the worse part about alonso's race last year is that he could go so wide of the track, repeatedly, and not get punished for it. it's a street circuit without any of the features that make street circuits compelling.

    the sunset is rather nice though.

    Tell that to webber!

    I dont think that part of the track is so bad, its a multi apex right turn then a tight hairpin under the hotel. the bit before it is what strings them out.

    Going offline will be much worse this year with lots of marbles down. the GP is the first event of the season on the track so it will need to rubber in

    Nah it's all good hither thank you....listened to the podcast last night.. good effort guys. I defo confirm though that Silverstone was packed on Friday practice. I've never seen it that busy on a friday before. I have noticed the new camera angles (excluding swing cool cam) hardly show the crowd at all. Due to the weather people were staying more in the stands but they were packed. I've never been turned away from a grandstand on a Friday before...this time easily 4 or 5 were too full when we approached them.

  • RCC (aka Rocking Copse Corner)14/07/2011 at 15:13

    I did get frustrated in FP2 though with the lack of running...not fair really. I took some newbies and although they loved it, I did feel slightly responsible for us standing looking at tarmac for 45 mins in FP2

  • Leigh O'Gorman14/07/2011 at 15:13

    I do believe there is still a lot of contention over the 1939 European Championship to this day

  • Mr C14/07/2011 at 15:16

    I have noticed the new camera angles (excluding swing cool cam) hardly show the crowd at all.

    i counted six fans during fp1. odd that the camera highlights wide open spaces and not packed stands.

  • RCC (aka Rocking Copse Corner)14/07/2011 at 15:18

    Lol.....it certainly looked that way on the red button coverage. We stood the whole of Fp2 at Luffield and there must of been 300-400 along that standing but and the old Luffield 2 terrace...everyone else was sensible and hid in the stands.

    No not really...I took some token shots around Luffield in FP2 (we walked the track in an anti clockwise manner) ...they're not that exciting but can mail if anyone one would like a butchers. I've spent the last 3 years with a DSLR stuck to my face at the GP and ended up viewing the whole weekend through a viewfinder. Kinda promised my gf i wouldn't spend this year doing the same.....killed me though as I was itching to shoot the new bits.

    I think I'll be there for both those as well

    The lawn looks awesome btw ....when you're there the cars look fantastic travelling along the pitlane...it makes a real difference seeing the pit lane raised like that...albeit dipping out of sight at the better teams...silly fail Sivlerstone but surely that'll be better next year.

    How many Renault tickets you go for? I haven't got my Le Mans tickets yet....suppose I should get my ass in gear.

    Oo speaking of Le Mansy style things....did you watch ALMS from Lime Rock the other night?

    I write for the British F3 series for my site and I've a few other bits and bobs lined up too. It's a great little series.

    Marshalled at Silverstone once too (not my thing at all)

  • Leigh O'Gorman14/07/2011 at 15:44

    No wait - just checked. Le Mans series at Silverstone is a couple of weeks before British F3

  • Leigh O'Gorman14/07/2011 at 15:55

    Fantastic, well done :)

  • Pat W14/07/2011 at 17:05

    Lol.....it certainly looked that way on the red button coverage. We stood the whole of Fp2 at Luffield and there must of been 300-400 along that standing but and the old Luffield 2 terrace...everyone else was sensible and hid in the stands.

    Luffield looked really odd on TV without grandstands all the way around it.

    I know he's good friends with him, good thing for him to do. Was a really good speedway rider too, shame he lost form and then had the massive crash.

    Is Mr c or Christine around?

  • Pat W14/07/2011 at 21:24

    This FIA video is pretty cool with the impact testing on a fighter jet canopy. Maybe F1 cars really will look like Adrian Newey's Gran Turismo design..
