Tuesday is barely a few hours old and is already looking unusual. I don't recall my last daily post for this site, but it must have been a while ago. To further compound my confusion, I've borrowed Christine's MacBook to write this on, as mine is somewhat tied up rendering new and interesting things.

At present, we're three hours into a four hour burn and a secondary desk fan has been called into action to prevent the poor machine becoming a pool of aluminium. Our studio is consequently both very noisy and also very cold... as I write this, it's 1am.

Feed me some Formula 1

As drivers, teams and media prepare for the European season's final hurrah in Monza this weekend, we've been busy wrapping up news from the last race at Spa-Francorchamps. Do have a listen to the latest edition of F1 Debrief to get our thoughts on happenings in Belgium.

On that subject our release coincides nicely with the official video edit of the same race on the Formula 1 site. While easily one of the best post-race productions I've seen, I do question why so many unique camera angles and shots come to light after the race, rather than during it. Be sure to watch the montage, if only to witness how exciting and varied live F1 coverage could be, given the right talent behind the desk.

Moving into the present and some news courtesy of F1Minute - The technical brains behind some of the top teams are split on how much of a difference they think DRS will make in Monza. It occurs to me mid-season testing could make such a big difference this year, with so much DRS experimentation happening at race meetings.

In the past, we used to bemoan cars running around the Autodromo Nazionale Monza ahead of a Grand Prix, as it reduced the amount of running teams needed to fit in during Friday practice. However, this year such an event could give the FIA chance to try out various overtaking zone options, allowing them to select the best one come the weekend. As it is now, we won't really know what to expect until lap three or four of the GP, by which point it's too late to make any changes.

That uplifting note on which we end

I'll leave you with some enjoyable F1 tweets of the week and a reminder to find out about the things Red Bull got up to in Cardiff at the weekend. I was most excited to learn what Daniel Ricciardo could do with a NASCAR at his disposal.

Anyone for a warm cup of tea?

    Nice daily, Mr C!

    Re: race edits, I think the reason they don't use all the fancy edits is because they don't necessarily add much to the story. And when you're doing something live, you don't really want to spend too much time doing replays (which they're already kind of doing). Also. they don't always make things look that much better. Previous race edits also showed some new angles, but didn't always make it better - for me, anyway.

  • Mr C06/09/2011 at 02:12

    i love the cars heading over the crest of the hill and and the shot through the armco. i love all the pitlane camera work around rob and red bull and the cars coming in together. all of that could go to make for better race coverage.

    How well do you know your Formula 1 history?

    The book That'll be the Day: 365 F1 Stories takes a look at significant moments or quirky happenings on this day in Grand Prix history. Can you guess what event the following describes?

    - Which driver took his second of two victories, on this day, and went on to become world champion in 1964?

  • Leigh O'Gorman06/09/2011 at 09:00

    Interesting goings-on in Asia.

    The Chinese want to build an oval with more seating than Indianapolis Motor Speedway. http://joesaward.wordpress.com/2011/09/05/indycar-and-china/

    Whilst the Thais want a Grand Prix, which could be fun since they have good backing. People forget Red Bull is half-owned by a Thai family. http://joesaward.wordpress.com/2011/09/06/the-pros-and-cons-of-a-thai-grand-prix/

    Aye - Terry Angstadt confirmed this prior to Sonoma in the infamous Randy Bernard / Brian Barnhart press conference.

    Unfortunately, this is the same Chinese race IndyCar (and previously both IRL and Champ Car) have been trying to secure for the six / seven years.

    I don't trust Angstadt when he says something is 90% complete - deals tend to fall through several weeks later. I really thought Bernard had trained Angstadt to keep quiet.

    I wonder if they will go back to surfers if they are in the greater neighbourhood

    And technically, this series / car never visited Surfer's bar a non-Championship event at teh end of '08.

    Surfer's Paradise was a CART / Champ Car stable race.

  • Nick (@Twiger)06/09/2011 at 10:40

    The answer is still no, for now.

    I guess its also a case of if V8's will let them now as well.

    The V8' s are popular there, but nowhere near the level of CART back in the day.

  • Leigh O'Gorman06/09/2011 at 10:42

    A lot of the CART / Champ Car events were essentially titled "Indy"

    knowing Qingdao and people from that area the only thing that will happen will be yet another case of government money embezzlement ... and how on earth can they justify such a big capacity track when they struggle to fill up grandstands in Shaghai, that is twice as rich and 10 times as large ...

    Zhuhai would probably be more feasible option. Track is there and perhaps good enough for Indy (not an oval though) and only an hour ferry ride from Hong Kong and basically 15 min by taxi from Macau... Would be much easier to fill up the grandstands, and cheaper too ...

    Evening all. It's been a long week. Managed to watch the Belgian GP on iPlayer, was a good one.

    Also I finally watched "Murray Walker's Life in the Fast Lane". What a great documentary.

    Respect to Ant Davidson for putting his name on the entry list this weekend for Silverstone, I thought he wouldn't be healed yet. They've listed Simon Pagenaud as a 3rd driver just in case.

  • Pat W06/09/2011 at 21:52

    Hahah, someone has the Twitter name @pjharvey and it isn't the singer PJ Harvey.. who has just won the Mercury Music Prize.
