Postby Wedgy » Sat Nov 01, 2008 5:54 pm

Is anyone as nervous as me about tomorrow's race? Watching the qualifying now and I dont think I've felt like this since Mansell in 1992 :(

Gonna be a nail-biter :-s

I went to Silverstone on race day once. You couldn't tell who was in what position at all, and at the end we didn't have a clue who'd won (Herbert as it turned out). Was pretty good though, if overpriced. The practice sessions were just as good to watch and a lot less pricey.

I went in 2005 and although agree with everything you say, it was an experience LIKE NOTHING ELSE!

Me in a formula first at Rufforth airfield near York:-

Took it round Elvington airfield too. My brother has a Silva Stryker (like a Westfield/Catereham) and races it in the 750 motor club kit car series. Been round a few circuits in it (Oulton, Donington, Cadwell). He's getting a new body shell next year and I'm going to see about putting some VTST signage on it. Would be a good bit of promo for them.

If the boy keeps his head, and stays out of trouble it is his championship to throw away. Massa could have been on a light fuel load to get pole and they said it may rain so it will mix things up a bit.

in a way, i hope that it DOES rain - LH is by far the best driver out there in the wet B-)

that would make for an exciting championship race, but i guess I'd rather it be a dull and boring country drive for him - just as long as he wins and wipes the Greasy Wops' noses in it :D

considering that today's race will thankfully be the last covered by ITV ( \:D/ ) I've just been looking on the net to see if there are any rumours of who will present BBC's coverage next year.

i found this:

The eagerly-anticipated news of who will present BBC's F1 coverage from 2009 can finally be revealed. Read on to see who Auntie has chosen for the task...

The BBC has finalised its team of presenters for its coverage of Formula 1 from next year, it has been claimed, with Martin Brundle and David Coulthard on the bill - but no James Allen, Steve Rider or Mark Blundell.

With the Beeb set to reclaim the rights to broadcast the world's most expensive sport from ITV in 2009 - on a five-year contract - it has been revealed by Pitpass that the presenting team will be composed of ITV-F1 favourite Brundle alongside BBC Radio Five Live stalwart Jonathan Legard in the commentary booth, soon-to-retire Red Bull Racing ace Coulthard and Jake Humphrey fronting the programme in the studio and Lee McKenzie reprising the roles of Louise Goodman and Ted Kravitz as pit-lane reporter...........


the whole article can be found here

I'm not sure how accurate this information is, but it seems pretty definite :)
