British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Well - if you were to pick a pair of modern Lotii - they would be the ones 8-)

Watching the Canadian Practice & Qualy sessions - I see the Force India cars have 100th GP logos on their cars - another opportunity if they release them as a model 8-)

PDR's one didn't get as much exposure as expected in quali though. Race is usually an entertaining one :)

Just watched it - He made for up it in the race though heh? Glad Sutil got the DTP, what a wally. I just wish:

1. They would give Suzi Perry the flick now - she adds nothing and the BBC made a big mistake not putting Lee M in as anchor - her piece with Lewis and Moss had more class in 5 minutes than all the squeaking SP made in the whole show. What does she add apart from eye-candy (sort of) at Monaco (Oooh Eddie - is that part of the 67 expo dome down there...squeak squeak - pleeez)

2. Raikkonen gets to transfer to RB for 2014 so someone can give the fingered one a run for his money since MW isn't up to the job anymore. What was that last fastest lap by MW all about anyway - why wasn't he doing that for all the laps after his final pitstop?

Thank God Alonso keeps pushing to be in the hunt - if it wasn't for that DNF, he would only be 11 points behind in a less able car.

Pack it all up chaps and bring it back to Europe...

I find the best way to watch the BBC coverage these days is in mute up till the lights go green, and in mute from the chequered flag onwards. This way i spend less time correcting the commentators out loud though i still do during the race. Drives me, and the family mad

Anyway - back to more Halcyon days

If Suzi Perry continues to present the BBC coverage next year, and the fact the number of live races have reduced, I may well be off to the Dark Side (Sky not BMW :-)

I don't regret it. David Croft is not bad in the box, and the presentation team have settled in quite well I think. Damon Hill is not the most comfortable in front of the camera, and Johnny Herbert not the most eloquent, but at least they have a legitimate opinion. Brundle and Ted Kravitz also assets for Sky.

Cheers Dave. Ironically I am missing Crofty from the Free Practice Sessions from last year - always a good bit of banter going on.

I also note there are a load of features that Brundle gets up to eg the Ferrari visit he talked about on the Motor Sport podcast

You should have a listen to these - the one before with Lee M was also very insightful - you could tell she really was disappointed in not getting the front job

These are all brilliant to listen to and get me through 10/14 hour schlepps across Europe 8-)

March almost looks like it is missing the naughty decals there is so little sponsorship on it. A situation that seems to be repeating itself this year with several of the back markers, Sauber in particular looking to be in major strife. :(
