Taxi for Hamilton

As part of that Vodafone taxi campaign you’ll have seen kicking about, Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen have done this ad, which is rather amusing. It’s a bit like that Lewis racing Fernando Alonso Hilton advert from a couple of years ago. But this has got Barry from Eastenders in it:

Talking Turkey

We like the Turkish Grand Prix, mainly because of that massive, triple-apex Turn Eight. Watching drivers pin it through there from the onboard camera is an adrenalin rush just sitting on the sofa. Imagine how it feels when your brain’s being forced out of your right ear-hole by the G-force…

Malaysia practice: Ferrari on top

The Ferraris are both back at the top of the time sheets after today’s second practice in Sepang for the Malaysian GP, with Kimi Raikkonen going quickest. But his morning wasn’t without drama. Or smoke. Lots of smoke.

Brazilian GP: pole shot

Not great, but no disaster. That’s the best way to sum up Lewis Hamilton’s final qualifying session of 2009. On a day when Ferrari and McLaren tried to outdo each other in appearing to remain calm under pressure (‘We’re treating this like any other grand prix’. Yeah, right) it was Ferrari who won out.

Brazilian GP: practice

Today’s second practice session didn’t go well for either McLaren, and if this is a sign of things to come in Sunday’s race, then Lewis’ title dreams are in trouble.

Chinese GP: subdued Sunday

Subdued. That’s the word that came to mind as I walked through the paddock an hour after the finish. It’s true that the vast acreage of concrete did little to engender atmosphere as the teams packed up but there was no buzz about the place, certainly not like Fuji the week before.

Japanese GP: Quali

After this morning’s last gasp effort by Heikki Kovalainen to land himself third spot on the grid for tomorrow’s grand prix, Lewis Hamilton will certainly owe him a few pints if, come the end of the season, Lewis finds himself as world champion.

Not-so-silly season

I love the silly season between the end of one year’s racing and the beginning of the next. Who’s going where, which drivers are changing teams, how that impacts on other free seats… there’s just something about the intrigue that gets me. It’s like the US presidential race, but actually interesting.
