I'm tipping Lewis to make it seven. Although I also tipped RoGro in Monaco, so...

Someone pointed out Alonso's Canada record:
2001 - DNF
2003 - 4th
2004 - DNF
2005 - DNF
2006 - 1st
2007 - 7th
2008 - DNF
2010 - 3rd
2011 -DNF

Bit of a bogey circuit for Alonso, even though he has won there!

“Beginning on June 7 and running through race day on June 10, Anonymous will take down all the F1 websites, dump the servers and databases — and wreck anything else F1-related we can find on the internet,” the group said in a statement.

Unfortunately we got a warning from F~0~M to shut down the live timing :(

I don't get it. What does F1 got to do with Bill 78? Sounds more like those hack.. what ever are just looking for publicity for themselves.

You've answered your own question there.

Sad.

Mere threats from - allegedly - non-violent protesters can now lead to the cancellation of an absolutely unrelated event. Even though they could make theirs Bernie's saying that "there is no such thing as bad publicity", I'm afraid they'll only end up jeopardizing their own cause there.

Hopefully it's not a glimpse of more significant disruption to come during the race weekend.

Hopefully no one 'll run on the track during the race. We had that in the past and it was pretty scary.

This is the only track (bar Austin obviously) that Red Bull have not won at. That's remarkable when you consider they've only been winning races since 2009.

Monaco winner Webber headed to the IOM to watch the TT. His reaction?

One DRS Zone for this race.

We had 125 overtakes last year (2nd highest after Turkey - 126).
