Vettel in the gravel box

Last seen on his knees in the gravel. Must be looking for a lost spark plug.

Just got called out to prevent Travolta from commandeering the safety car

Caught him in the middle of a heated discussion with Bernd Maylander, insisting on piloting the safety car next time it’d be called out. Used the word ‘piloting’, said he was certified on twelve types of aeroplane so why not the safety car? Managed to talk him out of it but he didn’t look convinced. Neither did Bernd.

Thank God for rain

After weeks of pointless discussions how to make races more attractive, here’s the one to end them all: a spot of rain. Need to have a little pow wow with the Chinese who seem to be world readers in rainmaking. Now that would be a solution, having some cannon inducing rains at critical points during the race.

Definitely beats shortcuts.

John Travolta is stealing all the limelight

For once I’m indoors, watching from comfort and sharing it all with you my dear contributors fans, and there’s this John Travolta strutting about, catching cheers from the grand stands, acting as if he owns the place. Which he doesn’t of course. I do.

The earrings just fell off…

… so evidently they’re not real. Unlike Fabiana’s, of course (shown here in their natural habitat).


Watching ESPN on one of the screens, they have this Paula Malai Ali doing comments. I tell you, these are the biggest earrings I’ve ever seen! Wonder if they’re real?

Bernie goes high tech

The Melbourne GP is about to start, and for once I’m not strolling down the grid but sitting comfortably in my pit lane suite. Bernie will go live on the internets during the Australian Grand Prix. The world will be able to share my thoughts as the race happens. Amazing how the times are changing.

I promise I will not leave halfway this time, as I did in Bahrain.
