Halfway through the week now, and it is Robert Doornbos' birthday. The former Minardi/Red Bull driver was last seen (by me anyway) driving around in the IndyCar series, probably getting in the way of Franck. Anyway, here are some of the things we're talking about:

  • Adrian Sutil has had his fair share of bad luck in Formula 1, but the man himself is not about to let things get him down, not now that the team are on the up. He's hoping for good things in the next few races, so he can end the season on a high.
  • Australian GP organisers have said they are more than happy to take the second slot on the calendar for next year, but I don't really believe them. Surely there is nothing quite like hosting the opening round of the year? And they must know how rubbish it was last time they weren't the first race of the year.
  • Lastly, Mr C worked really hard following the Sidepodradio fun and games, and all the replay videos are now up. With all the video and audio goodness up, it's now just a countdown until we get the edited versions ready for the podcast feed. Yay for Sidepodradio!

That'll do it for now. It appears there is still Renault talk going on, with the FIA actually sharing information! That should keep you amused, and if not, I'll see you in the comments.

    Yeah, the Renault thing is odd. I see Flab's planning on suing the FIA or something along those lines.

    Here we go again...

  • Amy22/09/2009 at 23:10

    ah i see. In nz you have to pass a theory test to get your learners permit so you have to do it before you get behind the wheel for the first time.

  • Amy22/09/2009 at 23:12

    oops wrong daily. I blame mobile doohickey for my lameness because its easier than blaming myself

  • me22/09/2009 at 23:13

    before i go, attempts to bounce everyone simultaneously onto the new day because amy's on mobile doohickey and is gonna struggle, if we don't move en mass.

    exactly. night all.

  • Alison22/09/2009 at 23:15

    Okay, hello new daily thread of joy!

    Other things you probably wouldn't know include stopping distances.... I'm sure I'll think of other things (that I can't remember)

  • Alison22/09/2009 at 23:16

    Yes, there are many different names for many things. The different types of crossing also depend on whether it flashes orange or goes to orange with red before green.

  • Nick22/09/2009 at 23:18

    Yes, there are many different names for many things. The different types of crossing also depend on whether it flashes orange or goes to orange with red before green.

    But why would you need to know that to drive? surely you just need to know how to react?

  • Andy Taylor22/09/2009 at 23:18

    Yes, there are many different names for many things. The different types of crossing also depend on whether it flashes orange or goes to orange with red before green.

    I swear they made some more types of crossing up for the sole purpose of justifying the theory test.

    yay new daily! Aka my default home!

    You don't particularly.... They make you learn them all though. I couldn't tell you which is which now! I had to learn it all at the time though....

  • lou22/09/2009 at 23:20

    am in new daily now :)

    You need to know what's going to happen next though..

    Do you?

    I certainly dont have a clue what they would do!

    A couple of years ago they made the green light on the traffic lights in dubai flash before it goes amber, i had no idea that it was going to happen but i knew how to react...

  • lou22/09/2009 at 23:26

    okay i've been around for all of a few moments but i need to get on with this 10min presentation on the causes of WW2 and any similarities they may share with the causes for WW1 - fun times :s

    i now know it was mr c and his shouting that was making me feel like i needed to check spc :) however now i must go, or i'll never get sleep/this finished. night all! x

    Some parts of theory are SO important though. What if you didn't know what to do at a zebra. You could mow someone down!

    WW2 ended up happening partly due to the settlement that ended WW1.

    Lack of effective diplomatic engagement would be a good place to start

  • Pat W22/09/2009 at 23:30

    Night Lou. There weren't many similarities. One was caused by treaty after treaty kicking in, and the other was caused by national disillusionment.

    Lack of effective diplomatic engagement would be a good place to start

    Also the isolationism of the US, although it wasnt so much a factor in the first war, if they had shown a willingness to engage at an earlier stage it would have displayed a clear inbalance between the sides and prompted their leaderships to come to terms

    Cheers!

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 00:04

    sorry nick ill be sleeping on saturday, then watching fp3 and qualy ;)

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 00:06

    Why do people with no skills, talent, interest in property renovation think that they're going to be able to make their millions doing it? Do people in other countries behave like that? It's crazy.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 00:06

    sorry nick ill be sleeping on saturday, then watching fp3 and qualy ;)

    Awe... it starts at 7:45 so you could probably watch FP3

    If you can pull a gigles and weild 2 phones at once you could follow Quali on Doohickey...

    Whats that? No its not unreasonable! :P

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 00:07

    You can pay me to fly out and watch it for you.... :) I don't even know what sport but I'm willing to compromise.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 00:08

    I don't really follow club rugby at all. But as a sport, I understand the rules (and the different sorts....) which is a big step up on me and my general sport knowledge!

    Have you ever tried it? :D

  • Joe in Fla23/09/2009 at 00:19

    if they were alive great. Any additional pain you can give to a gator is fine by me. It's a good thing there are no man-eating Panda's

  • Joe in Fla23/09/2009 at 00:23

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 01:06

    Nah, she's lovely. She presents a programme that follows people doing up houses and supposedly making their millions. She gives them really good, sensible advice which they invariably refuse to take. Then they finish their houses and can't sell them. Everyone that looks round suggests they make changes she suggested from the outset....

    Thats the one.

    He has a very narrow mind on more experimental architecture. however this seems to be determined on a whim and not by any principles... the man RILES ME!

    He does have some interesting stuff on his show though, not all of it to my tastes but still, if you ignore half the stuff he says it can be quite good

    or more accurately, I got bored with every other programme being about property about 2 yrs ago.

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 01:11

    Grand designs is okay though because at least when their build goes all wrong and they end up spending a fortune, it's their house and they get to enjoy it.

    When people are trying to spend money on stupid fixtures that add no value to a development property, that's ridiculous!

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 01:11

    It is better now. I'm not sure if that's because of the crunch or because I don't watch as much TV generally.

    hehe, when i moved into my house for the third year of uni, i had a room whcih faced the morning sun, i slept in it for 1 night then had to buy blackout blinds, the walls were painted dark blue, you could never tell what time it was without a clock in that room :D

    most nights i sleep with an eye mask just like i am on a plane. The blinds in my house are white so block out no light and it comes in far too early. I have been meaning to put up curtains but i dont have a bassano near by.

    For ages in one of the places I lived in I had to have a thick curtain behind the actual curtain.

    I don't think there's any way I can afford either Android or Apple so I'm going to see what I can find in the shop and try not to get talked into anything.. I saw different prices in there the other week.

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 02:14

    Might do it Thurs morning as I might be busy tomorrow... wonder if I should set up some sort of video account just in case :-)

    Oh, Amy, I remember those heady times... I dreamt of it last night, actually.

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 05:31

    things arent so bad here though, i finish work in 30 minutes and im buying a cheese slicer on my way home :D

    Oh, Amy, I remember those heady times... I dreamt of it last night, actually.

    I'd like to think that I've been kinda lucky when it comes to watching GPs. It was my dream to watch one ever since I started watching full-time. It took 8 years, then I suddenly see 2 in the space of 6 months. I won't always get to do that.

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 05:32

    Mmmmm... cheeeeeeeeeese. :D you like to cook?

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 05:35

    i like it but dont do it much in the week because im always too tired when i get home . I do like cheese. After our discussions the other night i realised my flat has no cheese slicer and that is just wrong!

    That IS wrong. For me, any house must have a cheese slicer and a cookie jar. :)

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 05:45

    i know what you mean about feeling lucky with races. I always knew when i finished uni i would make it to a melbourne race at least once but by the end of next year i will have been to 6 races in 4 countries which i never would have predicted!

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)23/09/2009 at 05:49

    Morning,

    Do you know what the HTC Touch is like?

    HTC = Handsets that can't! :D

    It should be called the "Thump" too, as it needs a lot more pressure to respond than the iTouch...

    That rules out the grandstand option for me then - can't afford them yet.

    not a knife? Surely you could just use a knife, adding extra cutlery just creates chaos in the kitchen!

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 05:55

    dont worry gavin, bassano isnt buying everyones this weekend. Lots of others will be buying later too.

    nick! You must have had no sleep. I have been using a knife until now but its not ideal as it does not give perfectly uniform slices ;)

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)23/09/2009 at 05:57

    dont worry gavin, bassano isnt buying everyones this weekend. Lots of others will be buying later too.

    Good. Because due to an "accounting error", I am basically skint until my birthday at the end of next month. That's why I only donated £10 :(

    As a former salesperson, can I just say how difficult it is to know:

    (a) whether you need help or not,

    (b) whether you will bite my head off just for saying hi and

    (c) whether you will actually help pay my wages after spending half an hour with you?

    I emailed the Spa people about buying grandstand tickets separately and they said if you want to sit next to each other, put an order number of your friends in the comment box as you book and they'll allocate you seats next to them. The seat allocation isn't done until just before the event so you should be able to sit with people even if you book separately.

    much more helpful than the Aus GP when you ring up the day they go on sale and they won't sell you the seat you want because they're holding it for last years ticket holder

    "yes that was me, I sat there all four days but next year I'd like that seat for the Sunday as I am taking a four corners package"

    That is ridiculous. Shops should have a "Come and ask for us" policy posted at the entrance. I think if you want to buy something, it's your responsibility to go to the checkout and say what you want to buy. It sounds like some shop chains have absolutely no idea what people want.

    Although the Apple Store has got rid of checkouts, and now you've no idea where to go, especially when all the staff are busy.

    i don't have a heikki hat :( wearing the bright orange lewis hat and the bright orange shirt is too much at once so I'll wear my black hat instead :D

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 06:51

    I have seen mini cornish pasties, in Asda. I like filling with my pastry though :)

    Thats what i was thinking, i could imagine a smaller version, but it just wouldn't work!

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)23/09/2009 at 06:52

    So guys,

    What team shirts do you have?

    I was given a red shirt with a Ferrari crest on it (never wear it though), I was sent last year's Williams shirt from Australia and I have a RenaultF1 shirt from the days of the mighty Blue & Yellows!

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 06:52

    I don't remember any of the McLaren shirts ever having their team name on it. Except for the caps.

    I want one which says:

    McLaren

    Woking

    then i will buy one ;)

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 06:53

    What team shirts do you have?

    I have 6 McLaren shirts (the victory one, the world champion lewis one, two members polos, the heikki one and this one which is my current favourite :D

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 06:54

    What team shirts do you have?

    I have a Brawn Shirt, and a Gulf hat*

    *was bought at goodwood because my face got warm. Also figured i could play cricket in it... if i actually played cricket!

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 06:54

    But are they as good as a volevont ;)

    I tell you what, I'd kill for a good potato top right now *adds it to the list of foods to consume in 3 weeks time*

    I just have one Ferrari F1 team polo from 2007 (arguably their best design in the last decade - and the shirt's of good quality too), and some Ferrari tees. I also have one Williams tee with JPM's autograph on it. :)

    Wait... Aussie has the Pie Floater but no Tato Top Pies?

  • startledbunny23/09/2009 at 06:55

    oh you're missing out if you don't have wee pies. In NZ we call them 'savouries' but it turns out over here they are 'party pies'

    You know, I think they're probably called that, or "Party Size" Pies. I do buy little pies sometimes, but I'm usually too busy ripping the packaging open to notice what they're called. I'm shopping tonight, so I'll look and let you know.

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 06:55

    this one which is my current favourite :D

    NICE design.

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 06:56

    NICE design.

    the fabric is really nice, and the cut is absolutely perfect. I wish the rest of their shirts were so well designed, most of them become absolutely shapeless when you wash them.

    The t-shirts were quite pricey, conveniently the hats were only £12, which narrowly beat out the £5 super-aguri cap ;)

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 06:58

    I got it in their 30% off sale, so not too bad, its the shipping thats a killer. They often have free UK shipping though so good for some! If I can I like to get them from the F1 shop because its cheaper than getting them shipped over, and also cheaper than the prices at Grands Prix themselves.

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 07:00

    Maybe, but there were loads and loads and loads of them!

    Ahhh. My situation's a bit trickier. Whenever I buy anything online, I get it shipped to the US to my aunt's, then they send it here via courier. Our mail system is unreliable at best, and nonexistent at worst. Compared to GP weekend prices, there's not really too much of a difference based on my experience.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:01

    I'm not asking for me! :P

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:02

    In what respect?

    well,

    a) I have no idea what was the point of having Alonso there, where he was introduced as an innocent person anyway, and no investigative questions went in his direction

    b) Piquet was granted immunity for "telling the truth" while 2 other people (Symonds and mr X) told different story about where the idea came from. So either Symonds lied and should have been punished as liar, or Piquet lied and should have received no immunity

    c) the whole atmosphere seemed to me like we are friends here, all nice people, so lets hang Briatore and go home

    something stinks ...

    P.S. noticed the letter from Frank Williams in support of Renault ... he really wants their engines

  • Amy23/09/2009 at 07:03

    How is it in anyway McLaren related!!!!!

    the back of it, the back of it!

    I agree that was a little strange... it was all to conveniently ignored...

    c) the whole atmosphere seemed to me like we are friends here, all nice people, so lets hang Briatore and go home

    It seemed like max had prepared the dogs of war in case max arrived, but just petted them when he didn't

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 07:06

    not sure how much better they are than Toyota's though. And he doesn't need their KERS, either, because he has his own.

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:06

    But wasn't it Renault who presented Mr X?

    so ? that makes no difference. either Piquet lied or Symonds and Mr. X lied. someone lied. Briatore is said to have lied, got lifetime ban. There are more liars there ...

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:07

    not sure how much better they are than Toyota's though. And he doesn't need their KERS, either, because he has his own.

    But he needs an engine with a Kers input, that might be difficult unless he has a cosworth

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 07:07

    so ? that makes no difference. either Piquet lied or Symonds and Mr. X lied. someone lied. Briatore is said to have lied, got lifetime ban. There are more liars there ...

    but if he came from the Renault camp, doesn't that put his credibility into question? not that he's lying, but surely what he said was to Renault's advantage?

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 07:07

    But he needs an engine with a Kers input, that might be difficult unless he has a cosworth

    Good point.

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:08

    at the end there is no answer to the question who came out with crash idea. if it was indeed Piquet (as 2 people who were in the room say) that would kind of change the whole picture ...

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:09

    at the end there is no answer to the question who came out with crash idea. if it was indeed Piquet (as 2 people who were in the room say) that would kind of change the whole picture ...

    I still think thats a ridiculous idea, i think MrX was protecting Pat

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 07:09

    at the end there is no answer to the question who came out with crash idea. if it was indeed Piquet (as 2 people who were in the room say) that would kind of change the whole picture ...

    the court said it was flav and pat's idea. whether it's correct or not is a completely different question.

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:09

    but if he came from the Renault camp, doesn't that put his credibility into question? not that he's lying, but surely what he said was to Renault's advantage?

    well, kind of my point, there is a serious discrepancy that no one seem to have bothered to clarify ... as long as Briatore is out we are all fine ...

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:10

    the court said it was flav and pat's idea. whether it's correct or not is a completely different question.

    so, then, in that case, Symonds was not honest and should have received same ban as Briatore

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:12

    the court said it was flav and pat's idea. whether it's correct or not is a completely different question.

    also, if court says that, that sort of means that they do not really believe the statements from Symonds and mr X. so how can they use those statements to make judgement about Flavio ?

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 07:12

    so, then, in that case, Symonds was not honest and should have received same ban as Briatore

    2 things

    1. symonds admitted to it, compared to briatore who's always denied it, so that alone merits flav a heavier penalty for me

    2. symonds isn't young anymore. this 5-year thing might become an early retirement. also, he'd have to catch up on a lot of things he'd miss in 5 years.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:13

    so, then, in that case, Symonds was not honest and should have received same ban as Briatore

    The problem there is that, that part of the case is impossible to prove either way.

    In the end its laregly irrelevent.

    Pat said sorry and got off lightly (it will still likley end his career, but can he go to Le Mans?)

    Flav continued to deny everything despite the massive evidence and got slammed because of it

    Flav

    I am really not sure Pat got off lightly - is he not 62 years - so he can only return to F1 at 67 years.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:17

    I am really not sure Pat got off lightly - is he not 62 years - so he can only return to F1 at 67 years.

    Flav

    true, but no one seemed to care actually work out how the whole thing started. and that is what I find very strange. there is still very big probablility that Piquet who plays the victim is the one who dragged the team into this but is the only one who escapes without punishment. he has no seat anymore, but that was the case before the whole thing came out to open ...

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:18

    I am not certain, but i belive he is 54

    they said he will be 62 when the 5 years ban is over

    Autosport paywall article says he is 56

  • Rich23/09/2009 at 07:21

    I am not certain, but i belive he is 54

    I have looked it up Pat was born in 1953 so he is 56 - in 5 years time he will be 61 - yes possibly he can get back into the sport in 5 years time. My apologies - but definately it was reported some where he was that old.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:24

  • Rich23/09/2009 at 07:26

    Sorry this is ridiculous - with all of the strategists they have they will listen to a 23 year-old kid. If the idea cam from Piquet Snr I could understand it, Junior is not bright enough to have come up with this scheme. So you are saying it is best that we do not find out about activities like this - sweep under the carpet? If you do not give immunity you will not get the evidence to clean-up the industry.

    well that is what Max Mosley said ... I agree to the point that Piquet could not come up with the whole strategy. But to come up with the idea to crash ? 23-year old is not capable of suggesting something that silly ?

    Why would he though? If pat and flav had taken it wrongly he would have been out of a job there and then.

    And if he was worried about being sacked, yet another spin wouldn't have looked good to a perspective team

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:34

    If you do not give immunity you will not get the evidence to clean-up the industry.

    agree. but he received immunity for telling the truth. but two witnesses said something else in their testimony, testimony that was used to fry Briatore . testimony of one of them, Mr X was also accepted as an act of cooperation from Renault and contributed to lenient sentence ...

  • F1Wolf23/09/2009 at 07:37

    Why would he though?

    the theories why would he are all over the place and they all have something to do with his new contract. there may all be wrong, Piquet might have been forced into it, Symonds and Mr X might have made their testimonies up. but that is my point ... one or the other made up their stories but both sides were priased by WMSC for cooperating ...

  • Rich23/09/2009 at 07:39

    well that is what Max Mosley said ... I agree to the point that Piquet could not come up with the whole strategy. But to come up with the idea to crash ? 23-year old is not capable of suggesting something that silly ?

    The strategy of crashing in order to secure a good result for Alonso actually takes a a lot of planning - it might seem simply. Firstly it would only work with the following - in a window of 2-3 laps and after Alonso had pitted, at one part of the track where there was no crane and finally not such a big accident as to incur a red flag. This has hallmarks of a strategist not a driver.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 07:39

    It was all immaterial though, if flav had turned up, changed his arument and brought a smart lawyer then it might have been different.

    I expect witnessx was a person close to Pat so i dont think that would have stood up to all that much cross scrutiny. I dont know why he wanted imunity, its hightly likely we will find out who he is, if not this weekend then before the end of the season.

    It looks like Bernie is injecting a murder mystery to get more attention more than a credible witness at the moment

    totally agree. and we know that the strategy was worked out by Symonds. that is the part where their stories match.

  • Alex Andronov23/09/2009 at 07:41

    The Dieter Rencken Nick linked to was interesting, I had just been reading it. It does take the complete opposite view to most in the press and seems to think it was a cop out.

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)23/09/2009 at 07:42

    a) I have no idea what was the point of having Alonso there, where he was introduced as an innocent person anyway, and no investigative questions went in his direction

    They REALLY want him in a red car next year...

    b) Piquet was granted immunity for "telling the truth" while 2 other people (Symonds and mr X) told different story about where the idea came from. So either Symonds lied and should have been punished as liar, or Piquet lied and should have received no immunity

    I agree. Piquet should not have been given immunity that easily and I don't think anyone was questioned thoroughly enough

    c) the whole atmosphere seemed to me like we are friends here, all nice people, so lets hang Briatore and go home

    That's exactly my impression too.

    P.S. noticed the letter from Frank Williams in support of Renault ... he really wants their engines

    Do you have a link to this letter? Sadly I know a certain person on another forum who really hates Williams for the lack of FOTA support and will love to put the boot in some more...

    I can see that could have been Piquet's idea - you need the entire strategy to derive the need for a crash.

    Everyone seems to have a problem with Piquet's immunity. Fernando was not exactly honest at McLaren and attempted to "blackmail" Ron unless he got number 1 preferential status. Seems as bad to me. Now look at honest Lewis - twice told lies to the FIA - he was also given immunity from further penalties (over losing his points). Either all three driver should have had punishments like bans or none of them or you accept their whistle-blower status (they each provided the necessary evidence to bring about closure of the investigation). The problem is Nelsinho is seen as a rubbish driver so lets punish him more, oh dear we cannot punish Fernando and Lewis because they are such good drives - this is extreme DOUBLE STANDARDS.

    I think the implication was that by offering Piquet immunity, he would stick to the version that the FIA wanted rather than tell the complete truth.

    On the police thing, a criminologist will tell you the situation is completly changed by the ultimate consequenes.

    He may have been a good detective, but in my opinion using that as the template for this case was complete nonsense

    I don't think so completely - it's not like Piquet can be trusted, is it?

  • Rich23/09/2009 at 08:03

    I think the implication was that by offering Piquet immunity, he would stick to the version that the FIA wanted rather than tell the complete truth.

    I am sure Piquet's statement was not independently drafted of FIA guidance. So I would like to know what you think the rest is to make it the complete truth. (I am sure there is more truth than has been revealed).

    Well it's just that Nelson blames the team for making him do it, and Slymonds, Flabbio and Mysterex all say it was his idea. Plus nothing was said about Fernando, who was brought in to say he did nothing wrong, even though he was the main beneficiary and he never apparently questioned a crazy strategy...

    I dunno though, Hamilton went through this phase of light fueling early this season. He stopped about lap 12 in Monaco.... Perhaps inspired by Fernando's "luck" last Singapore GP?. Stupid perhaps, but he went with it as a strategy without any persuasion.

    Will you be hammering the door down to get inside?

  • James23/09/2009 at 08:44

    Everyone seems to have a problem with Piquet’s immunity. Fernando was not exactly honest at McLaren and attempted to “blackmail” Ron unless he got number 1 preferential status.

    Thing is we know squat about what happened between Ron and Fernando, as the only persons side of the story we have is Ron's.

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 08:46

    Will you be hammering the door down to get inside?

    I would - if I had a way of getting ready and into the city in 15 minutes. Hmm..... :P

    More FOTA news:

    Campos, USF1 join FOTA

    Virgin F1 (ex-Manor) should also be accepted soon-ish according to the article. Lotus is also interested, according to the article.

    The key challenge for them I guess is, can they stay united with everything the FIA is throwing at them with rules changes? A united FOTA is a strong FOTA.

    I wonder who they'll choose as the next FOTA president after LDM. Ross Brawn, maybe?

  • Christine23/09/2009 at 09:19

    I do like this story about Renault staying in F1. Their statement says:

    The acts of the conspirators were so outside what they were employed to do and so contrary to Renault F1's interests, they ought not to be attributed to Renault F1. This is truly a case where the conspirators were on a frolic of their own.

    First time I've heard this whole thing called a frolic. I like it.

    maybe Brawn - if he can listen to Rubens complain and then just go "that's okay, we'll get on with things" he can deal with Bernie quite well.

    I wonder if Campos and USF1 only signed up after Flav disappeared...

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 09:27

    He seems to be the most level-headed yet influential guy out there. I mean, I can't see Whitmarsh or Howett carrying themselves well against Bernie or Jean Todt. If anything, Todt would at least listen to Brawn.

    Frank Williams or Patrick Head would be good picks as well.

    Only issue could be how people think now about anything Brawn said/did when they "bent the rules" earlier this year with the diffuser. But I think that's water under the bridge. But would Brawn *want* the position? maybe he'd want to focus on the team next year.

    not sure. just having a look at the FOTA website. i see Ross Brawn is already head of the Tech regs working group. nothing about how long the job is - maybe until people vote them out at a meeting? no press statement up there about Flav either, and Flav was head of the commercial development working group too.

    I am shaking my fist at the nonexistant postman

    The most annoying thing is that my postie is coming everyday but I'm waiting for a parcel from far far away that hasn't come because someone else's postie is on strike. It really taunts you when you do get other mail through....

  • Rich23/09/2009 at 10:39

    Frank Williams or Patrick Head would be good picks as well.

    I was not sure that I was a fan of Patrick Head but he has been saying some very reasonable things recently.

    Only issue could be how people think now about anything Brawn said/did when they "bent the rules" earlier this year with the diffuser. But I think that's water under the bridge. But would Brawn *want* the position? maybe he'd want to focus on the team next year.

    It was all rubbish - yes creative interpretation - but such interpretation extends to many other areas. Frankly it was sour grapes by the other teams (including my own fan team BMW Sauber).

    Supposing the Malaysian factory is built, can anyone forsee an issue that Honda had with having two factories? They had double the amount of people and they ended up doing much of the same (and conflicting) work...

    I emailed the Spa people about buying grandstand tickets separately and they said if you want to sit next to each other, put an order number of your friends in the comment box as you book and they'll allocate you seats next to them. The seat allocation isn't done until just before the event so you should be able to sit with people even if you book separately.

    Good stuff.

    I also think a 'weekend' ticket allows you to go anywhere on the Friday so no extra Fri ticket necessary for the wanderers.

    yes (3 years actually)

    Because for me they are not very interesting. Last time I checked there was usually an 'advertising' feature (about this great new track, car, theme park...) and something about dead people the history of racing and a race report which I might appreciate in 10 years but not now. Also I'm still sulking because of the Barbie thing.

    amazing. you should tell him that.

    it's still worth letting him know. is there an example of features that you do like, or would prefer to see instead? like the some of the autosport subs articles or gpweek articles. would it be better if there were more posts like he writes on his blog?

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 11:40

    I do find them interesting. I tend to skip the old man articles though. My favourite bit about them was reading over the old issues as I hadn't watched the races concerned at all, it gave me a lot of background knowledge and stopped me feeling quite so ignorant. Reading a few at once from no background also gives you some idea of his little biases :P

    I really really like his blog, but I like that it is a blog. If that makes sense. I think in GP+ those articles might get lost, also I don't know if he can write whatever he wants in GP+ or if he will find that his paddock pass won't work one day if he goes on too long about the fees GP venues have to pay to Bernie.

    I guess I will donate something directly in the future rather than renew the subscription.

    fair point. i wouldn't mind that, so long as i didn't lose desktop search too.

    i want the magazine as pdf. if it was also online i wouldn't mind at all. i guess it might put the price up, and maybe slow down production? don't know.

    No idea. I lost track of the regulations a long time ago.

    Massa himself said he wasn't worried, as well. He doesn't remember the accident at all, so I guess it's more a matter of fitness than of any mental demons.

    #MFC

    Palm wrote to USB and said... Make Apple play nice. USB wrote back to Palm and said essentially, "stop doing what you're doing or we're not going to certify your stuff". Which I guess was a) not what Palm intended and b) would mean Palm would have to stop using the USB mark on their product I guess.

  • Alex Andronov23/09/2009 at 14:51

    okay agreed. but, apple are doing wrong too. so can palm make changes and then resubmit a complaint?

    Well no... Basically they are saying while it may be bad that apple are being naughty to find out that you are really a pre, what is definitely not allowed is Pre using another vendors code.

    I think Pre used the wrong avenue... They need to go to the department of trade about exploiting monopoly position. Although I'm guessing this document is actually proof that there is no way to make a "compatible" device. So they probably went to USB knowing they'd get shot down to prove that Apple are being unfair.

    Come to think of it there aren't that many #MFC activities that take place outdoors.

    1) Live streaming, but that could be done at home

    2) Geocaching

    Is that it or are there more?

    (for those who want to know what Geocaching is here's the opening para of wikipedia: Geocaching is an outdoor activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers (called "geocaches" or "caches") anywhere in the world. A typical cache is a small waterproof container (usually a tupperware or ammo box) containing a logbook. Larger containers can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value. Geocaching is most often described as a "game of high-tech hide and seek", sharing many aspects with orienteering, treasure-hunting, and waymarking.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geocaching

    Anyway, has it been mentioned here that Renault's dropped their case against the PKs?

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/78805

    "A Spanish or a Finnish driver? We'll take some decisions within a few weeks," he was quoted as saying by La Stampa.

    "What's certain is that we'll have a Brazilian driver who deserves another chance, because thank God he is fine now. As for the rest, we are pondering over the best choice."

    But he had an interesting snipe at Ari:

    When asked for comments about Todt's rival Vatanen, Mosley said: "Ari keeps complaining, and has done it several times, that I should be neutral and not favouring Jean.

    "But he has forgotten that at the end of June, when I announced that I was standing down, he called me up and said, 'can I come and see you?' So I invited him to lunch.

    "He came to lunch on July 3 and said he was going to stand, and asked me if I would support him. I said I couldn't support him as I promised to support Jean.

    "I said, 'I will be very honest. I think Jean is a much better candidate. You have no experience, you have never run anything, you've not been in charge of even the smallest organisation, you have no concept of what it is like. You didn't even run your own rally car, you had a co-driver to do that.'"

    Monza had to go through a bit of this as well in the past, but I think that's been sorted now. Hopefully, Spa can manage that too - they've had so many issues in the last decade. They don't need another new reason for Bernie to kick them off the calendar...

    The last thing the sport needs IMHO is more of the Toad.

    We need a period of F1 being in the papers for quality on the track action. Not behind the scenes politicking and stupid race decisions from the FIA - (Alonso's grid penalty for blocking Massa @ Monza whilst being 6 seconds up the road, Lewis @ Spa last year etc)

    The problem with belgin politics is though, that if there is a problem it will not be resolved quickly, and its so messy common sense will not play a part in whatever is decided.

    I'll be there but others coming from work may not make it exactly for that golden hour. We'll hang there for a bit definitely

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 16:20

    I'm coming straight into Waterloo from Dorchester. Should be able to find it, ta.

    Cross Waterloo Bridge and turn left

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 16:21

    Cross Waterloo Bridge and turn left

    or hungaford bridge and turn right! ;)

    I am not worried yet, but unless someone explains what is going on this weekend, it could well be a problem

    Has anyone going to Spa bought tickets already? Perhaps you should put that on hold for the meantime?

    I was going to this week, I'll give it a few days for the news to pan out

    Strange that this only comes to light AFTER the official calendar gets released. (But the previous week was ok?)

    Thanks for all the directions :). I'm in town all day, am thinking of going to Westminster Cathedral & Abbey & possibly the National Gallery. Arriving at Vic c. 11:30am so will have plenty of time to find the pub. I love just wandering around in London.

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 16:26

    It could be just a coincidence - but it strengthens my suspicion of it being a political ploy.

    Sounds good. I've no idea when I'll get there, depends when I get my backside on to a train!

    I have a question about Wordpress. When you look at the feed for mfc it includes the favicon in every post. Is that something that you can tell wordpress to do or does that happen automatically?

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 16:29

    Strange that this only comes to light AFTER the official calendar gets released. (But the previous week was ok?)

    I haven't looked yet but I'd presume there's a refund if the event is cancelled?

    There will be, but you're better off saving yourself the hassle, I'd think.

    Hey - if Spa falls through, do you wanna go to Monza instead? It could be too far, though...

    It's an option but for those not driving it becomes harder and more expensive

    I've already changed my leave at work once!

  • Journeyer23/09/2009 at 16:33

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 16:38

  • Kathi23/09/2009 at 16:39

    No, it's just something I've noticed recently and Gavin's icon just crashed my reader.

    that has annoyed the people we were meeting so the whole thing aborted. how childish.. i'm going off to buy some beer instead.

  • Alex Andronov23/09/2009 at 16:40

    No, it's just something I've noticed recently and Gavin's icon just crashed my reader.

    Mine doesn't have it... but then that's because what I did was just open up the template and add the favicon. Christine I guess did something more the way you are supposed to do it.

    It was £12 whcih is quite a lot for a PSN game so it better be! 32 player games do sound interesting, and who wouldnt like a game which promotes obesity!

    Which is odd since I sent an e-mail to HMV Customer Services asking if they'd be selling it at all, and they replied saying they wouldn't. Maybe demand was overwhelming?

    I think just after you decide you've had enough

    he was drinking elsewhere.

    OK - there is still a lot of missing pieces to the Singapore Saga that have not been cleared up. Personally I do not really buy that Piquet made the suggestion since I am not sure he would know enough about the track, the safety and Alonso's situation - and frankly from interviews he does seem to be the brightest of guys. It seems the "Window of Opportunity" to hatch the plan was between Alonso's fuel pump issues on Saturday and putting the car into parc ferme. Would Nelsinho have the necessary information in which to make the connections that lead to this strategy. Would the team listen to a 23 year old driver with a poor F1 racing record?

    Evening :)

    Hi

  • Maverick23/09/2009 at 21:19

    Evening!

    It is indeed

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:20

    Yep :)

    Apparently, those who have had the chance to play the game have said it's just incredible. And with my pre-order with HMV for the Limited Collectors Edition secured today, all that's left to do is sit back, wait and enjoy the remaining flow of content and announcements. :D

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:21

    Limited Ed. for me too, hehehe. :)

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 21:22

    I'm not long awake tonight I reckon....

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:22

    13" as you can see here in this video we just recorded to annoy you all:

    I dont understand what it is, so i am not annoyed :D

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:23

    Limited Ed. for me too, hehehe. :)

    You know it comes with a 2GB flash drive! Plus VIP status on the Auction House, some exclusive VIP cars and a keyring.

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:25

    I just love how they've made the game more user-friendly. Anyone who loves cars or racing, no matter what their age, level of interest or skill level can just pick up and play. It's great. Kudos to T10 for that.

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:27

    yeah, well... well... well..

    ...

    yeah.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:27

    Limited Ed. for me too, hehehe. :)

    Ooooh... i feel a spot of tremayning coming on

    Grrr... I hate limited edition versions of games... i have never actually bought one... but in reality the normal edition is surely the limited edition, afterall 2 or 3 months down the line they do a 'game of the year' edition which has all the content of the limited edition and more usually.

    Its just squeezing people for money for stuff which should come with the game anyway...or adding in stupid things like nightvision goggles... grrr

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:28

    yeah.

    :D Best response from Mr C ever :D

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:29

    Yeah I know but I'm a sucker for fancy boxes

    Thats my argument damnit and I'm standing by it!

  • Adie23/09/2009 at 21:29

    Good evening y'all!

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:30

    Thats my argument damnit and I'm standing by it!

    And free stuff! Who wouldn't say no to a free 2GB flashdrive? :D

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:30

    And free stuff! Who wouldn't say no to a free 2GB flashdrive? :D

    oh I don;t need them anymore. As I now have... A MUSE USB PEN

    It came with my limited edi... uh... it came with the album.

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 21:31

    woot. can now see you in friendfeed. thank you.

    Err, ok

    Is that like an RSS whatsit for tweets, FB updates and the like?

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:31

    It came with my limited edi... uh... it came with the album.

    :D

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:32

    right.. what was i doing?

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:32

    Good evening y'all!

    evening

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:32

    I'm gonna have so much fun and stuff to do with the video editor. So much creativeness locked up and finally I'll have the ability to unleash it :D

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:32

    Err, ok

    Is that like an RSS whatsit for tweets, FB updates and the like?

    it's how i track tweets:

    http://friendfeed.com/sidepodcast-tweet-stream

    essentially it gives me everybody's full stream. unlike twitter. who are incompetent.

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:32

    And free stuff! Who wouldn't say no to a free 2GB flashdrive? :D

    How much extra is the ltd edition to get the free thing?

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:33

    essentially it gives me everybody's full stream. unlike twitter. who are incompetent.

    Tell me about it. I had my Twitter homepage set up to auto-login to TMR. I wanted to reallocate my mobile to the personal a/c (because I've got an old mobi that can only tweet by SMS). So I delete the mobi and log out. And log out. And log out. It wouldn't log out until the 5th time.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:34

    And free stuff! Who wouldn't say no to a free 2GB flashdrive? :D

    Its not free though!

    they charge 10-15 quid more for it and they will include a £3 flash drive!

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:35

    essentially it gives me everybody's full stream. unlike twitter. who are incompetent.

    What do twitter miss out?

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:35

    How much extra is the ltd edition to get the free thing?

    Umm.....£15.

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 21:35

    Everything comes with those stupid USB pens. Is it just me that has about 10 of them kicking around....?

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:35

    Umm.....£15.

    £5 for me?

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:36

    Everything comes with those stupid USB pens. Is it just me that has about 10 of them kicking around....?

    I have 1, its currently lost so i am using my camera, which isnt all that convenient, now i think about it!

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:37

    Everything comes with those stupid USB pens. Is it just me that has about 10 of them kicking around....?

    I have two. I think.

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:37

    Everything comes with those stupid USB pens. Is it just me that has about 10 of them kicking around....?

    Me too but I have one THAT SAYS MUSE ON IT

    I am not materialistic

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:37

    Right i am going to bed, might drop into the comments there or nod off...

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:37

    £5 for me?

    Where are you getting yours?

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:37

    Right i am going to bed, might drop into the comments there or nod off...

    Ganite!

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:37

    I have two. I think.

    To be honest I don't see the point of them for transferring files when you can do it online. I only use it because my car has a USB slot.

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:37

    I have a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes flash drive :D

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:37

  • startledbunny23/09/2009 at 21:38

    Everything comes with those stupid USB pens. Is it just me that has about 10 of them kicking around....?

    I bought a 16GB one for about £16, which I have lost.

    Me too but I have one THAT SAYS MUSE ON IT

    Mine said play dot com :)

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:38

    essentially it gives me everybody's full stream. unlike twitter. who are incompetent.

    What do twitter miss out?

    - say i follow @mrschristine and @dank but not @miscpandafan.

    - if @mrschristine tweets @dank, i'll see that tweet. i follow both.

    - if @mrschristine tweets @miscpandafan, twitter hides it from me. because i don't subscribe to that person.

    however, if i go to http://twitter.com/mrschristine i can see all of the girls tweets. so it's not really a secret, in which case just let me see it!

    friendfeed lets me see everybody's full stream.

  • Adie23/09/2009 at 21:42

    Argh too tired to take that all in!! My eyes are converting that to white noise!!! :D

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:43

    Argh too tired to take that all in!! My eyes are converting that to white noise!!! :D

    hehe. bottom line... twitter used to do something but the developers couldn't make it scale so they axed it.

    it was important to me.

  • Scott Woodwiss23/09/2009 at 21:43

    Lukeh, have you still got that pic of Austin Button? ;) :D I want to use it as a DP on ForzaCentral :D

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 21:44

    hehe. bottom line... twitter used to do something but the developers couldn't make it scale so they axed it.

    You could claim you weren't really interested in conversations with people you don't know... If it were anyone except Christine, would you want it clogging up the page?

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 21:44

    it's how i track tweets:

    How do you tell who is tweeting?

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:45

    Lukeh, have you still got that pic of Austin Button? ;) :D I want to use it as a DP on ForzaCentral :D

    :D

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:45

    How do you tell who is tweeting?

    well. that is an issue. i roll over the "twitter" link and read the status bar.

    daft when i write it down, but i prefer it to twitter.

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:46

    You could claim you weren't really interested in conversations with people you don't know... If it were anyone except Christine, would you want it clogging up the page?

    there used to be an option to turn it off if that was the case. which was fine by me. but i am interested.

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 21:47

    Lukeh, have you still got that pic of Austin Button? ;) :D I want to use it as a DP on ForzaCentral :D

    Drop.io really needs an effective search. Though I think we need to label our media consistently too

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:47

    blame 3 hrs sleep?

    Hehe, I had 3 the- woke up, managed a bit less than 2 for my nap

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 21:47

    fyi alex. google finally caught up with friendfeed:

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:48

    Drop.io really needs an effective search. Though I think we need to label our media consistently too

    it has been mentioned to them a lot, yup.

  • Nick23/09/2009 at 21:50

    friendfeed lets me see everybody's full stream.

    ah I see... will have to watch my language or I might get in trouble :P

    Do any of the various aps give you that option?

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 21:50

    well. that is an issue. i roll over the "twitter" link and read the status bar.

    And you can tweet from there too?

  • Lukeh23/09/2009 at 21:51

    http://www.google.co...+crowd+of+notes

    WOOOOO

    It only took about 9 hours. Go awesome man dancing on a stage to a crowd of notes!!!

  • Adie23/09/2009 at 21:51

    it was important to me.

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:51

    Heh, nosy beggar :P

    imagine if doohickey hid one third of the comments from you.

    if you could only see ones with no quoted comment, or ones which are in reply to a comment you posted. to me that's half a story.

  • James23/09/2009 at 21:52

    I was annoyed about the same thing. :D

    I'm just putting up with it though ;)

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:52

    And you can tweet from there too?

    sadly not. copy and paste to tweetdeck.

    i know it sounds insane, but that's how important the feature was/is to me.

  • Pat W23/09/2009 at 21:52

    ah I see... will have to watch my language or I might get in trouble :P

    Why would you? What you say in your feed is your business.

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 21:53

    imagine if doohickey hid one third of the comments from you.

    I kinda like the LCLT though in that it takes away the comments that aren't part of the conversation I'm having.

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:53

    I was annoyed about the same thing. :D

    I'm just putting up with it though ;)

    same with christine.

  • me23/09/2009 at 21:54

    I kinda like the LCLT though in that it takes away the comments that aren't part of the conversation I'm having.

    completely agreed. sometimes i'm all for that. but there is still the option of doohickey, if you suffer from ADD.

  • James23/09/2009 at 21:55

    same with christine.

    :)

    the friendfeed way is good, but I'd get annoyed at not knowing whose said something until I move the mouse over something.

  • James23/09/2009 at 21:56

    You need a back to basics holiday, my friend. I can suggest a few places in SE Asia that are just about growing out of dial up. You'll tire of that very quickly and your FriendFeed will then be the local bar or restaurant ;)

  • James23/09/2009 at 22:07

    That's just from common sense though.... You think "oh yes, milk, I know what direction to head for that...." rather than "what did I buy, it was near the fish counter.....?"

  • Alison23/09/2009 at 22:09

    Hehehehe Mr C unplugged :P

  • Bassano Clapper23/09/2009 at 22:09

    Who else do you know who can remember what supermarket aisle they bought stuff from but not what they bought?

    I think Mr C has a custom URL in his head for the frozen stuff, another for the fizzy stuff, etc

    pretty sure that's how he catalogue his shelf locations :)

  • James23/09/2009 at 22:10

    That's just from common sense though.... You think "oh yes, milk, I know what direction to head for that...." rather than "what did I buy, it was near the fish counter.....?"

  • Alex Andronov23/09/2009 at 22:56

    well that can't be me.

    You're so nice though :) Noone notices.

  • Alianora La Canta24/09/2009 at 00:29

    So guys,

    What team shirts do you have? {Comment #220}

    Do T-shirts count? If not, then I don't have any team shirts. If they do, I have a 2000-spec Jordan fitted T-shirt and a Jordan/Monteiro T-shirt (from 2005, obviously). The latter is my karting T-shirt because it makes me feel quick.

  • Alianora La Canta24/09/2009 at 00:38

    I have a Brawn Shirt, and a Gulf hat* {Comment #223}

    If hats also count, I have a 1999-spec McLaren hat, a 2001-spec Club Jordan hat, a 2002/2003-spec Jordan hat, a 2005-spec Jordan hat and an A1GP Italy hat. I am still waiting for the Midland hat to turn up (three years and counting, presumed lost in the post...)

  • Alianora La Canta24/09/2009 at 01:13

    but can he recite the hewey dewie classification code for F1 items? {Comment #337}

    It's 792.72. I like how it's easy-to-remember.

  • Alianora La Canta24/09/2009 at 01:15

    Today I did the online checkin for my Friday morning flight to Singapore, I noticed the destination weather info at the bottom of the check-in page – WED – Thunderstorms, THU – Thunderstorms, FRI – Thunderstorms, SAT – Thunderstorms, SUN – Thunderstorms {Comment #362}

    It might rain then?

  • Alianora La Canta24/09/2009 at 01:27

    Could they refuel in parc ferme last year? {Comment #1045}

    No. The refuelling rules last year are the same as this, except that this year we get told what the weights are and can therefore figure out fuel loads.

    This is where having an annual comes in handy...

  • Gavin Brown (RubberGoat)24/09/2009 at 06:01

    Are we to expect "Commuting FAIL: Wrong kind of snow" tweets this winter?

    "wrong kind of snow. lols"

    Surely it would be: "Train FAIL. LOLS on the line"?
