Might be an idea to edit that first line out temporarily. A lot of UK people will be watching the highlights-only coverage on BBC, which doesn't start for another three hours!

Sky have full live rights to all races, BBC only half of them.

Have you got a photo of Mitch Evans?

The gentleman in question, leading Simon Trummer on Saturday. I might have more from the second GP2 race, in which Mitch finished third, but thus far I've been slightly too busy to muck around with photos...

When it came to driving talent, Mark Webber had brief flashes last year in Monaco and GB, and his driving certainly wasn't pants today, that is until Sebastian pulled them down for him.

If they gave points for excuses, Webber would be a multiple world champ , but today was ugly.

I think that we all need a laugh, so how about this 'shock, horror' story from The Mail? Some video of a "shockingly dangerous" manoeuver by the cruelly wronged Webber on Boy Wonder Vettel, they aren't kidding when they tell us that motor racing is dangerous. I didn't bother to read beyond the first couple of lines, but they'll both need counselling after this.

New for 2013. Formula Ford is now a slicks and wings formula which will take me a while to come to terms with. This is Dan Cammish winning the first race of the new season/formula.

I've just spent two days at Equatorial Thruxton! No snow, but it was minus four when I left Kent this morning. Oulton Park beckons on the morrow, but I'm off F1 duty for a race or three, so the customary nonsense should resume late in May. Or hamster daffodil trampoline Frank Zappa cardigan lawnmower, as Kimi might say.

Given the thread title "Personal photos of F1 (and, erm, other stuff) 2013" I do so hope that we will get a flavour of your motorsport exploits over the coming weeks. Meanwhile I find myself 'grounded' as the early season testing at Harewood and Loton Park have been cancelled or postponed due to the snow drifts.

Not brilliant photos but some shots of qualifying day at Sepang. The rain made it more interesting though.

Those ugly roll cages. If you wish to race an open sports car have a properly reinforced rollbar, if you want a full cage get a tintop. And those bloody side curtins increase the ugly. Put the full wet weather top on or nothing.

Having watched countless on-board videos of Locaterfields at varicose locations it still is a mystery to me why they don't tank tape the "side curtins" shut. They flap about and cause a lot of drag in doing so. As for the "ugly roll cages" that is the standard equipment for a Caterham Academy car - you can thank Elf and Safety for that!

I only suggested that should the committee's decision be that only Simon could post photos on this thread then all others should be removed or moved. Obviously comment on Simon's efforts would be encouraged after all how is he to learn?

Nothing so draconian is necessary, Steve. David Lawson, Julian Roberts and others have posted excellent British GP snaps within this thread - light years better than mine, if I'm honest - and I don't see why that shouldn't continue. If people have interesting snaps of contemporary stuff and would rather post it in the (customarily) more genteel environs of TNF, I'd have thought this as good a place as any.

I still haven't edited many shots from Brands Hatch last Sunday: a full-time job leaves one with far too little thumb-twiddling time...

Yes, always very smartly turned out. Another favourite was Barry Foley's St Bruno Roughcutter - always seemingly with different a nosecone each time it appeared. Or maybe that was just me not paying quite enough attention.
