OK great thanks, for France I tuned in only 30 minutes before the race and was confused why the pre race had already started! Guess I'm used to Speed's 30 minute show.

I hope it's still raining! :cheezy:
But when you say very wet track, is it like in 1998 British GP?

I've just got a feeling that we're going to have a new or non-McLaren/Ferrari/BMW winner. I fancy Webber in the Red Bull for the win if its wet

I fancy Alonso to do well if its wet.He's a great driver and if others make mistakes he could be on the podium,if not win the race

The drivers parade truck comes through the complex to a blast of airhorns and cheers from a capacity crowd.

The rain has eased almost to a stop and overhead the sky is a little brighter than it was a short time ago.

The rain has now stopped all around the circuit. The track surface will slowly begin to dry out again, with just under 75 minutes to go before the start of the Santander British Grand Prix.

If the rain's only stopping now the track will still need a lot of time to dry out
