Hello everyone! It’s race day and what an exciting prospect, we’re back to normal timing and we can finally settle down into the season. My daily is going to be a bit shorter today, I’ve got a deadline on Monday so it’s all go in the world of lou. Wish me luck!

Before we get into any F1 news lets get this out of the way first. Did you watch Dr Who last night?! We did.

Brilliant wasn’t it.

Right, onto some lovely F1 then. Yesterday we had FP3 see the results here.

Qualifying went well today, for Red Bull, we’d be surprised if it didn’t though wouldn’t we. You can catch up on the highlights here and results here. As a small bit of post qualifying piece of news (isn’t it lovely that we have F1 news) Di Resta was given a reprimand for failing to stop at the weighbridge following the end of Q2, read more about it here. #sorrysteven

Of course qualifying wasn’t the only form of motorsport on yesterday, the 500km of Spa also happened, we live commented it too! Congrats to Ant and the Peugeot team on their victory! Well deserved.

On to the more art filled section of our Sunday now with some fun links for you all:

• Wouldn’t you just love to have this garden! How cool!

Summer is finally here, so why not enjoy it with some relevant summer images?

• Ever wondered what it may be like f cartoons invaded our world?

• Never be afraid of getting old. Old faces are sometimes more beautiful than the youngest of models’.

• Here are some rather awesome Cars 2 themed vintage posters. Can’t wait to see this film!

• Do you live in Tokyo? If so please can you go to this resturant, take photos and report back to me? I would love to go there, how amazing does it look!

I shall leave you with two very amazing things. Firstly take a look at this brilliant video based on flip books.

Then open this link and marvel at just how talented this man is. What an inspiration.

Have an amazing day everyone!

    Hehehehe at the MTV2 advert. genius! More adverts need to be creative like that. Although I do love those Cars 2 posters... I hope Pixar actually use them for advertising in the cinemas and the like.

    The final link is kind of amazing too. What a guy.

    Greetings everyone!

    What is with this NASCAR race on Fox ? I it only like 2x laps into the race. Very late start of did I miss a red flag ?

    I saw 10 laps of one while getting ready for my graduation nearly 4 years ago. Possibly the only 10 laps of NASCAR to ever have absolutely no debris or complaining...

    At least they would have a significiant amount of debris to clean up (not a paper towel) and the complaints might have some merit....

    i need to get me a subscription..

    for example:

    Charles Coates: LAT's contract to supply Team Lotus with images allows us great access to capture small details like this that you are rarely seen unless you are in the garage.

    however, this is the first race it's been any good. they gave up providing context the first 3 races. much improved for turkey though.

    may get it race by race over the summer

  • jpancoast08/05/2011 at 01:33

    ohhhh!! Mr Coates is a great photographer.

    You know, Lou, I thought about something the other day. If you're interested in becoming a motorsports photographer, have you ever thought of heading on down to a local go kart track and practicing there? They're almost always having races on the weekends and they're free to get into (at least in the states they are). Thought it might be a good place to practice.

    I want to try and do that sometime.... but it's kind of difficult to take pictures with my DSLR while I'm DRIVING the kart :)

    yeah i have. I'm gonna try do that this summer, i just need a way of getting there that doesn't depend on my mum... but that's a long story. The moment i get my independence i'll be at brands and buckmore park every second i can get.

    in the meantime, i must sleep. night all! xx

  • Jordan F108/05/2011 at 01:35

    Hmmmm, maybe NASCAR could make the race more interesting by having pulsiating floodlights..... be more interesting than a hotel that changes colour....

    I do not understand how pilots in the 1940's can have gun cameras that where triggere froma button on the control stick and you with some duct tape and a remote shutter button can not do the same thing...

    Duct tape you camera to the front axle and .yout remote shutter button to the steering wheel and away you go already... Heck pretend it is an onl fashioned clutch button...

    We rent the karts, nice and cheap that way. One guy is building an electric kart (he's an automotive engineer for his day job), and another guy just bought a rolling chassis, I think, but for the most part none of us own our own.

    it also gives a little bit of support to the helmet and your neck muscles don't have to work as much to keep your head up. At least when you're going fast 'round corners, that is. The track today we went to is really tight and really grippy and hurts like you know what after many fast laps.

    Luckily, he's not that fast yet :)

    Yeah, I wore those when I did the little things I did. It's amazing how heavy the helmet gets when you have any kind of additional weight.

    GP2 race has finished. Anybody has seen it? What a incredible last lap!

  • Nick08/05/2011 at 10:00

    Ooh, how did you get on? Any spear-induced injuries?

    I hit a fish but it snapped in half!

    We caught 3 between us in about 45 mins

    I had a go with a spear gun too... that was scary!

  • Alianora La Canta08/05/2011 at 10:01

    williams/renault may be back on the grid and testing might return. am i dreaming?

  • Lukeh08/05/2011 at 10:37

    Ohh that'd be awesome! Especially if Williams stick with the livery. Bit of a nostalgia rush ;)

  • MartiV808/05/2011 at 10:38

    Great news, hopefully silverstone will be a chosen venue.

    Barcelona should be in the calendar too hehe.

    Maybe Barcelona-Silverstone-Spa? I guess tests would be held in European tracks.

  • lou08/05/2011 at 10:38

    Great news, hopefully silverstone will be a chosen venue.

    even if it's in Europe it makes the whole 'going to see F1 cars' thing alot cheaper..

  • Alianora La Canta08/05/2011 at 10:39

    Maybe Barcelona-Silverstone-Spa? I guess tests would be held in European tracks.

    If not Spa, then maybe make it so all new tracks must have a test session the year before the first year in which they have a race (and thereby make the venue rotate)?

  • Lukeh08/05/2011 at 10:39

    does mean cossie might be in trouble though.

    Well, there's always, um... Hispania...

    If not Spa, then maybe make it so all new tracks must have a test session the year before the first year in which they have a race (and thereby make the venue rotate)?

    Then Russia or the USA would be the option, but I wonder if it's suitable to celebrate a test in America.

    Anyway, Bahrain has also held some Test Days and it's quite far away from Europe...

  • Alianora La Canta08/05/2011 at 10:42

    Then Russia or the USA would be the option, but I wonder if it's suitable to celebrate a test in America.

    Why not? It would be a good "taster" for Americans who are curious about what those folks from Europe want to offer them this time and it could improve ticket sales for the race.

  • Alianora La Canta08/05/2011 at 10:43

    does mean cossie might be in trouble though.

    Cosworth's model was based on three teams buying engines. There'll be less money but perhaps it will be easier for it to focus on its remaining customers.

    Why not? It would be a good "taster" for Americans who are curious about what those folks from Europe want to offer them this time and it could improve ticket sales for the race.

    Yes, I agree with you in that way, but I mean that it would be a expensive challenge for teams to bring all their stuff to America just for two days :S

  • Alianora La Canta08/05/2011 at 10:44

    Yes, I agree with you in that way, but I mean that it would be a expensive challenge for teams to bring all their stuff to America just for two days :S

    Tie it in with a flyaway - or better still, the Canadian Grand Prix (if the US Grand Prix is not itself going to pair with that race).

    James: 08/05/2011 at 16:00:58I think Maldonado won't stay in F1 because of his talent. I mean, he won the GP2, and he is a good driver, but he is not the one we thought he would be.

    He'll stay until Williams find the funds from elsewhere.

    The way Willimas are going, next year they will have an all-pay drivers line-up....Mal, Sakon Yamamoto again, maybe?

    Well, it depends.

    There are lots of Universities here and there, and normally if you don't want to study a very strange thing you don't have to move from your home town.

    Anyway, there are a few careers which are only tought in some specifical places.

    In my case, the University I want to go to is only 5 minutes away from my house :)

    Least they're actually listening too and not afraid to make tyres that are durable for the sake of being durable. Bridgestone never seemed to make any comment on how they were working with the sport, instead just turning up with the compounds and it's kind of nice to see Pirelli being more open.

    Felt like the only thing we knew of Bridgestone was through Andy Stobbart and even then that was a chummy chat between him and 5 Live, and the only real news was what tyres the teams had.

    Blimey, harsh. Jenson probably couldn't tell how much to push to not destroy the tyres, Ted says he could've pushed harder to build a time gap but I reckon the drop off afterwards would've been even bigger, the others would've caught him ridiculously quickly. Of course they wouldn't have known that until some way through the race.

    Bridgestone were more interested in demonstrating their technical skills in making durable tyres which were still bloody fast, and they were very good at it (so were Michelin). Very different approach from Pirelli, interesting to see them be so willing to do this stuff.

  • Pat W08/05/2011 at 20:15

    They are right. Too many stops

    3 stops would've been ideal, i agree.

    Agreed

    Sorry Pat. I'm limited by the fact that I'm going to Goodwood over that weekend, then I'll be in Scotland while Silverstone is happening. :( I know it's not good for long distances. I don't do go out at all during the week....unless I'm not in this country...

    Hi Leigh

  • Pat W08/05/2011 at 21:03

    Just been talking with my sister about a potential visiting-in-Spain opportunity, unfortunately my plans to turn up this or next month for a weekend have been spoiled by a whole load of people already doing the same! Pesky people planning things in January. ;)

    She's sending me a list of dates though to see what's free, so I can check the price of flights. Once that's agreed, things like how many days at Goodwood I can afford and whether I'll do a GP, will fall into place.

  • Pat W08/05/2011 at 21:03

    Kai, have a look at York, that might be a good stop off point. It's supposed to be nice

  • Alison08/05/2011 at 22:06

    Lots of places are nice. Keswick is a very good day out. You can walk round the lake, feed the ducks (!!! :D) or you can get a ferry half the way if you're tired/wet/lazy

    I'll check trip advisor and see what I can find. No worries. Thanks anyway.

    I'd like to point out none of my comments are serious. Middlesbrough is a nice place though, people just don't appreciate it.

    Well if you want to see Roman ruins/Hadrian's wall, this one is the best http://www.vindolanda.com/

    In context, unless your British/Roman history isn't up to scratch

  • Mr C08/05/2011 at 22:21

    I hope not. I just e-mailed mine after the technology chewed up my earlier attempt

    cheers sir! show is recorded, but it's not over until christine has edited it :)

  • Kai08/05/2011 at 22:21

    Sounds good. Driving?

    Train up north, maybe flying or taking the train back south. No driving planned. I'd end up on the wrong side, probably.

    Thank you for your help, everyone. Bad idea for me to ask and eat dinner at the same time. It all ends with a messy keyboard and slow response time.

    Awwww :( I should have sent you to Vindolanda too! There's dressed up men and like a museum and everything!

  • Mr C08/05/2011 at 22:28

    i am annoyed that i had to check a fact on this site during recording and loading the page broke logic. it's usually only flash that breaks logic, but this time the facebook widget did it.

    i therefore declare facebook the new flash.

  • Christine08/05/2011 at 22:29

    There is also dressed up men and ruins and museums at Segedunum, in Wallsend. Which is the end... of the wall, too...

    Yay, FB dissing. I can get on with that :)

    I thought it was full of flash there?

  • Alison08/05/2011 at 22:30

    Ah I see are you doing them in order?

    Don't know where you're staying for Goodwood but you may want to have a nose around Chichester or use it as a base.

    if you go to a page that ISN'T realtime (i know that's a big ask), like this thread, the facebook widget loads in the sidebar.

    ...don't worry, i'll get giggles to make ya a video ;)

    It's amazing. I'm not into that kind of thing tbh but my dad took me in the boat and it was all very exciting. He likes all that feat of engineering stuff.

    And this is a guy who I assume is paying a divorce settlement?

  • Journeyer09/05/2011 at 01:58

    They are right. Too many stops

    3 stops would've been ideal, i agree.

    3? I was thinking more along the lines of 2 stops.

  • Journeyer09/05/2011 at 01:59

    Blimey, harsh. Jenson probably couldn't tell how much to push to not destroy the tyres, Ted says he could've pushed harder to build a time gap but I reckon the drop off afterwards would've been even bigger, the others would've caught him ridiculously quickly. Of course they wouldn't have known that until some way through the race.

    All with the benefit of hindsight. I suspect the truth is a 50-50 thing: yes, Button could've pushed harder, but the team also got their strategy wrong.
