Christine's new book ALMOST unanimously popular

Well we certainly need a weekend off after the chaos in Montréal. FUN FACT: Due to the time-difference, first practice in Valencia began before the end of the Canadian GP. I think. Anyway, it's certainly been an interesting week since la pluie s'est finalement arrêté au Canada* and this Saturday, as usual, we get a chance to reflect.

This Weekend In F1

  • Hamilton and Stewart Swap Cars: Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart gave each other a taste of their vastly different machinery in demonstration runs at Watkins Glen. Both drivers were hugely enthusiastic after they exchanged the McLaren MP4-23 F1 car and the Stewart-Haas Chevy NASCAR, though you may be surprised to hear the whole event was almost cancelled. Our spies in the paddock say Lewis threw into a rage after he misheard the offer and thought a Steward, Tony, was asking after him*.
  • Ferrari Edging Towards 2012 Plan: Ferrari may start focussing on 2012 development if the next two races don't launch them into the thick of the title fight. This means they'll have one race, in Silverstone, to scope out how Red Bull fare without their precious off-throttle exhaust blown diffuser, which is to be banned for the British GP. But Ferrari still aim to take advantage of the hot, dirty air as they have signed up another four years of Marlboro sponsorship.
  • Schumacher: Resign or Re-sign?: Another great race by stumbling comeback king, Michael Schumacher, means the old dog has finally managed to dampen the career crisis talks. Ross Brawn even suspects Schumacher may be good to continue racing beyond his three year contract, but this only reminds me of the disgusted look my wife gives when I say the cheddar will still be good if I just scrape off all the mould...

This Time Last Year

  • Schumacher's Canada Calamity: Schumacher drew unanimous criticism from the F1 world after an appalling error-ridden race in Canada. Schumi qualified only 13th, was overtaken by Force Indias and Toro Rossos, crashed into Felipe Massa and forced Kubica onto the grass as he tried to defend against the Pole. 'He drove appallingly ... his worst weekend,' said Martin Brundle; 'Humiliated like never before,' said Bild; 'A big, big concern,' said Eddie Jordan; 'A shadow of his former self,' said David Coulthard.
  • Hamilton takes Championship Lead: Lewis Hamilton's great win in Canada - his second win in a row - put him at the top of the table, three points ahead of team mate, Button. The championship looks sweet for the McLaren team as they head back to the second European leg. The unique surface and layout of the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve meant that the drivers had to manage their tyres more than they'd experience so far this season, leading to more pitstops and an exciting strategic race. Fans called it the best race of the season (so far) and this became the benchmark race for Pirelli's tyre development.
  • Title Fight Will Be Two Horse Race: The current five-way championship won't last much longer, suggests Mark Webber. 'It is more often the case that until mid-season there are three to five drivers all together,' said the Australian. '70 per cent in there will probably be only three or so in it, and with a few races to go it becomes a duel. Perhaps the champion will even be known before the last race.'

This Time Next Year

  • Teams Finally Agree on Engine Format: After nearly a year of infighting within FOTA and the FIA, the 2013 compromised engine format has finally been decided. This gives the suppliers just six months to design, build and test the following engines:[/list]
    • Renault: 1.6 l v4 turbocharged engine with 400 kJ of KERS storage @ 60 kW power
    • Mercedes: 1.8 l v6 supercharged engine with 300 kJ of KERS storage @ 100 kW power
    • Ferrari: 3.6 l v12 non-turbocharged engine with 1000 kJ of KERS storage @ 65 kW power
    • Cosworth: 3.0 l v10 non-turbocharged engine with 400 kJ of KERS storage @ 70 kW power
    The Technical Working Group has agreed that these engine philosophies are equivalent. In the interests of viewer comprehension, the KERS graphics on the screen will be different sizes dependent on their storage and glow different colours depending on their power output. The FIA has reserved the right to add ballast to cars if the engines are deemed to be "non-equalised". Cars with ballast will have additional graphics on screen with different shapes according to the ballast applied.
  • BBC To Buy Red Bull Energy Station: BBC Sport have confirmed they are to buy the Red Bull Energy station and use it as their HQ for future Grands Prix from September onwards. In a special deal with the team, the broadcaster has allowed Red Bull to rent some of the space for hospitality and team briefings

  • Blachford Sequel Crisis Rumours: Christine Blachford's highly anticipated new F1 book, That'll be the Day : 365 F1 Stories (Part 2) is apparently in serious trouble after she revealed that absolutely nothing of note ever happened on February 11th. 'I got away with that story about Maurice Hamilton sneezing the shape of the Virgin Mary into his hankie in the first book,' the author said, 'but after that, there's nowhere else to go.' The SidePodCast writer has denied rumours she plans to release the book on February 11th 2013 as a meta solution to her problems.

    got my first taste of F1 noise live this year. the Red Bull demo run was OK, but racing is racing ... expected more fun from the event organized by Red Bull though. Too much time when nothing was happening.

    Quite surprised that the show car had to go to take the rest everytime after running for no more than 3 mins ... perhaps speeds too low to cool the engine but explain that to general crowd that never seen F1 car before

    I am sure a lot of people are thinking that

    Aye - been saying for ages that it'll either be 2011 or 2012. Next year had better not be a dud !!

  • Steven Roy18/06/2011 at 19:52

    very helpful. if i start the daily now (as my silly parents want to watch the golf) i may end up getting it finished early! :o

    Early? Odd concept

    media passes are relatively easy. you should go there.

    I think we are in for a string of good ones. Imagine what this year's could have been like if McNish and Rocky had not crashed out so early

    Surely the ACO being the pedantic people they have always been insist on you being published in 3 languages while singing the Marseillaise while standing on your head

    True. I was going to as a fan though and just relax to the sound of engines. I'll be doing the 24 Hours of Spa next month anyhoo.

    Very true too. Maybe next year, Aston Martin will complete 24...... laps

    It serves them right for putting black bits on a Gulf livery. It looked like an oil slick and totally ruined a classic livery. Just like Renault putting red bits on JPS. What is the point in choosing a classic livery then using it. It would be like Lotus putting purple polka dots on their yellow stripes.

    If Brabham get resurrected, will they use the pink and blue livery?

    Not sure that ever qualified as a classic. Brabham have a few options of classic liveries starting with the green and gold or the white Martini or the red livery of the late 70s or the white and blue of the Piquet years. I think all of those are ahead of the pink and purple. Of course if they follow current trends they will bring back the green and gold and put random purple and pink bits on it

    Mum and i overtook Rubens and Pastor's cars (in lorrys) on the motorway today. Mum screamed 'Rubens, Pastor.. i am faster than youuuu!!' :)

    This is just one of many reasons why your mum wins at being awesome. :)

    mum is awesome, but so is her sister. I need to go to my aunts house during quali for the german gp and i asked her if i could borrow her tv to watch it and she replied 'sure just return it to us in the evening so i can watch casualty' :)

    You are going to steal her TV?

  • lou18/06/2011 at 20:33

    well i was just wondering if i could watch it, but it's a nice tv.. so stealing it may be an option :)

    Replace it with your TV and tell her that Casualty are going for a new retro look to spice up the show

    take her to the local hospital and tell her they're broadcasting in the 3D now.

    hehehe my aunt is pretty clever, she'd figure that out pretty quickly.
