The forecast as I last saw it says it'll be wet - today is merely showers...

Good session in the end - I wonder what Schumi would have done had he started in Inters in that session and had the extra knowledge, because he did really well. The old rainmaster has still got it.

If?! :shock: :lol:



You see - you can't even count on the British weather!

Good drive from Webber - he's really looking like a good bet for the title at the moment. He seems to picking points up steadily at every race.

I'd be very happy if he did get the title this year. I've met him and he's a great guy, and he isn't getting any younger.

Yep, the secret to a long life is avoiding dying.

I'd like to see Webber win a title. I could see him becoming one of those drivers, much like Coulthard, Moss, etc who are brilliant drivers but were just unlucky in being unable to win a championship.

If you never get to do anything else in your life, I guarantee you'll finish with that.

To quote JLP from a week or so ago, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my Grandad, not screaming in terror like the passengers on his bus.

Thay have been saying that they've got upgrades which should help here. Fingers crossed it brings them back into contention.
