Exactly, and the broadcasters should air it again as they had before Silverstone.

Just remember the first question of Lauda to Alonso on the German podium: how do you feel as a Spaniard, winning the German GP in an Italian car... :roll:: &doh

Completely redundant.

It's just for the journalists to ask questions. I really hate the new format it's very short and silly :zz:

There's still a press conference.

Valencia out next year, Hockenheim replacing Nurburgring.

I think having the previous winners' signatures around the podium is pretty cool, but what are they going to do at places like Korea where there are only two previous winners? :lol:



two frickin huge signatures!

I don't like the new podium that much, what was wrong with the old one? Digitalised flags suck.

It isn't past winners, its the world champions signatures.

Herman Tilke. There will soon be a chicane following a hairpin for the driver to tackle before getting onto the podium.

Yup. Soon the drivers will be standing in front of a blue screen with the trophies and the representatives who hand them over being rendered in fabulous graphics. In 3D. And Dolby Surround.

Glock has apparently accused Pic of blocking him in qualifying multiple times. Timo seems a very frustrated driver.

What makes me laugh is Horner saying Red Bull should not be criticised for being clever, that it's up to the FIA whether a car is legal and all teams interpret rules. Compare that to his stance on Mercedes' Double DRS and his constant calls for 'clarification' even after it had repeatedly been declared legal...

Most teams voted to ban it (Mercedes obviously didn't) and you can bet Red Bull was amongst them.

Anthony Hamilton files a case of wrongful termination against Paul Di Resta, and we get some information of the initial reasons behind their split:

Quote:
Paul di Resta's split with Anthony Hamilton has taken a turn for the worse after the latter filed a case for 'wrongful termination' and 'loss of earnings.'

The Scot and his manager, who is also the father of Lewis Hamilton, parted ways earlier this season although neither was willing at the time to give an explanation.

"I think everything's been said that had to be said. I'll confirm we're not working together," di Resta said in early July.

Asked to expand on that the Scot said: "I think it's been reported that we're no longer working together and that is the matter at the moment."

However, the dispute is now set to go public after Hamilton reportedly brought a case of "wrongful termination of contract and loss of earnings."

According to the Daily Telegraph, di Resta responded with defence papers in which he "alleges that he dismissed Hamilton after learning he had been misled over a multi-million pound deal with the Energy Drink company Go Fast, which never came to fruition."

The newspaper states that the Force India driver alleges that "he took the deal, set up by his friend Jordan Wise and worth €5.5 million (£4.3 million) less commission, to his former manager late last year."

"Hamilton allegedly said it would make sense to buy Di Resta's sports drink rights from Force India so that they could proceed with the deal, telling the 26-year-old they were worth €2 million (£1.56 million). After hearing nothing for some time, Di Resta allegedly went to his team at the Chinese Grand Prix earlier this year to ask them what the situation was.

"Force India allegedly told him that the rights were worth only €1 million (£800,000). At this point, Di Resta allegedly decided to terminate his contract with Hamilton."

Our dark lord, Iceman, has told me to post this here. So here it is!

I'm getting around the writing up Silverstone experiences. So what happens on a Thursday? Well, lunch with 5Live, wry Kimi humour and pressing the wrong Button with Jenson...

For the summer break, Lotus have come up with a great idea ... They suggest you to build your own Lotus E20.. Paper E20 :p

All you need is 6 sheets of white paper and download the E20 papercraft kit from their Facebook page:
