    What a horrible way to start the season with the death of Charlie Whiting the FIA Formula One Race Director.
    Although, maybe not for Vettel....

    That is sad. Especially so as, until that point, he was in reasonable health. Not much you can do about it.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Well, a very slow F1 season, they just seem to be getting worse and worse....

    Silver car, silver car, red car red car, blue car, blue car.... Then the sell out drivers just playing midfield for cash

    Anyway, Monarco this week
    It just amazes me how fast the years go by now, i can almost just count the Monarco F1 races instead of the weeks

    Time seems to go fast retrospectively when things are boring although while it is happening boring events appear to go on for ever.
    The brain has kind of a compression algorithm for this, if I am allowed the analogy.
    For some reason Monaco seems to be the I-frame but all the other frames contain little data and this creates a small file in our memory that can be replayed fast without losing much resolution.

    While watching the last one in Spain I was doing something equally boring on another other PC simultaneously, decompressing and sorting audio sample files, very tedious, but together there was at least some synergy and I managed to get through both without falling asleep.

    If only Hamilton would retire.

    This era of thoughtless consumption must end so we can encourage a world of creative geniuses rather than consumer idiots.

    One of the best interviews in F1
    A current ex driver interviewing a current driver
    Learnt so much about the things we don't see, inter-team issues, engineers, and driver tricks....
    What a great attitude by both and mutual respect
