Hello everyone, what a lovely day it is today. Don’t you think? Not only is there plenty of racing on today, but in less than a weeks time F1 is back! Surely that’s something to celebrate. This time last year I was looking forward to going to the wonderful Spa Francorchamps circuit, and now I’m busy preparing to go to another great track – Britain’s very own Silverstone! If anyone else is heading there for a spot of World Series by Renault action look out for me, and any sidepodcast stickers. Do come over and say hi if you spot me.

On with some links for you all then, firstly it doesn’t seem right to move on with a new daily without mentioning Stuart’s epic questionnaire of a post yesterday. Please remember to check it out, and once you’ve come up with your answers send them to stuart at chainbear dot com.

Lukeh has some great posts for us to check out too. A post on muse, and a post on F1 and the BBC. Do take a look, they’re fascinating reads.

Rob Smedley was on the radio yesterday, if you missed it check Christine’s post for some of the gossip you missed and his and Lucy’s amazing work for charity.

Oh and look out for a possible ‘PING’ in the next few days as Mr and Mrs C recorded a brand new debrief yesterday.

Lets move on to some fun and interesting links then;

• Cute animal photos are the best. Squirrels are adorable, really they are.

• Typography is cool. It just is.

• Planning a trip to Stuttgart any time soon? If so it may be worth visiting the rather beautiful looking Porsche museum. Wow!

• If you’ve ever watched the film Man on Wire, you’ll be aware of the beauty of Tightrope artists. If, like me, it fascinates you, take a look at this short video on more fearless people walking on a rope meters above the ground.

Last week I introduced you all to a rather fun musical game, and well, it just so happens I’ve found another one for you. Build a street system, add plants, houses and lights. Place your cars down and hit play! It’s great!

That’s just about it from me for this daily, I hope you all have a lovely day!

    ahhh Isle of Tune is so much fun. Played with it a while back and promised not to spend much time making a song, of course, reality had other ideas. May have to spend time with that tomorrow when I'm less sleepy :)

    Today I'm spending my afternoon working on a few issues with my blog. For me the biggest issue I have is the fact I don't like that, when I'll use someone's image, sometimes I'll forget to include the credit. It's not for any reason except sometimes you just forget so that's my priority, getting something working that reminds me to do that. Plus there's other theme related issues I'm working on like the mobile theme too and incorporating a few new things but it's good fun when you're sitting out the back on a sunny day doing this :)

    They fixed it and he did a demonstration at the end of the afternoon.

    The early models where built at Barviarian Flugzeug (hence BF) before Willie took over the company and called it Messerschmitt. If you really want to get Technical you can say Bf 109's to the Dora model and Me-109 from the Emils up to the H models, and the navalized T model.

    Eventually it would have. Would have required a few drop tanks, and refuelling stops, but hey when you consider the total time from airport to airport, you would be surprized at how little time would have been lost.

    That would be great, but you will totally need a small radio receiver, because the LMS category is quite large.

    Silverstone commentary normally operates on the lower bandwidth.

    Bet she had fun though, you could get right into the paddock. We saw Romain Grosjean but he was under a motorhome canopy having lunch so didn't want to take his picture since it seemed a private area

    In Julius Craesar, as Craesar, that's about all you really need to know. This is from a guy with a surname of Allen that got stuck with mark Antony after the English teacher said that if there was no volunteers I am going to down the roll alphabeticially and you pick the character you are going to read.

Once i got to my place a guy came running from behind me and just pushed me down a bit of the bank as the renault was coming.. I was no pleased.

    ergh yeah i did. i could have killed that guy. no damage to me or my camera. Mum caught me. i'd run down half of hanger straight and up over the bridge to get a photo as the f1 car just went passed us when i wasn't paying attention. Once i got to my place a guy came running from behind me and just pushed me down a bit of the bank as the renault was coming.. I was no pleased. It didn't come past again and i know people can get excited but there were only 4 of us on the bank!

    Blimey, how rude

  • lou21/08/2011 at 21:13

    jeeeez...

    yep. he was much taller than me too. i was not impressed. still i got some shots that made up for it on the last f1 run and it didn't hurt. :)

    We've been very busy tbh though. At a wedding then Nick went to a stag do and we've been up north for a bit while I've been working etc.

    WOW! Bob Varsha on Wind Tunnel said that pace car driver, Johnny Rutherford said that the race should NOT have re-started. This is quite contrary to what BB said at the post-race

    Not exactly. BB said JR had not said the race should not re-start. So it is possible JR thought the race should not re-start but did not express an opinion the subject. Although it is inconceivable to me that a man of his experience did not question the re-start

  • Bert22/08/2011 at 01:27

    Those don't usually don't work on ex-drivers. Hence why Mansell was happy to speak out about F1 stewarding while the likes of McNish and Kristensen who are still racing are a lot more cautious.

    Amazing. One of the pit stewards spoke directly to Oriol Servia as well.

    The independent panel can only change the positions of the top three drivers? That is dumber than anything Max did.

    NP. Hopefully it's won't be lost in the very early hase of the interwebs.

    One answer that I have not had yet is to the statement of RHR during post-race press conference as to initiating a pass before the start line. What RHR basically said was that Oriol could not have passed him since you can not initiate (or complete?) a pass before the start line, which the video show had happened.

    That is normal in most championships but it has to be answered.

    The other thing is what constitutes the race finish if Servia won? Crossing the start line for the green is the finish?

  • Bert22/08/2011 at 02:32

    Agreed, but it has not prevented Indycar from botching calls. Look at the start of the 500, as organized as a herd of cats.
