Back in Belgium, meanwhile (and if ever you get chance to do Spa and Oulton Park on consecutive days, I heartily recommend it)...

Mark Webber and some trees.

Mark Webber and some more trees.

Don't think this is Mark Webber, but it looks like there are some trees in the distance.

Phil was a little slow with his panning technique...

The couple behind enjoyed a hearty lunch and brought a model yacht to sail on the lake.

Perhaps more blood pressure country than anything else, but on commentary Ben Edwards has just announced the start of the sixty-third running of the Italian Grand Prix.

 

If you're going to get it wrong, I suppose you might as well do it in spades ...

I suppose this comes under "other stuff"

 

I've just spent a few weeks with the family enjoying myself in France and achieved an an ambition of seeing the start of the the Le Mans 24 hour race. Well sort of....................This was slightly quieter than June and Nomex was replaced by Lycra as it was a race for cycles!!

 

500 hundred odd teams of varying skill - The slower riders were lapped as early as lap 2!!!

Indeed. And to judge from the second pic, the regulations governing power-unit design are much freer in the bicycling world.

I wouldn't mind betting that some of them have significant added turbo-assist after a plate of les haricots blancs.

Good grief - it's an outbreak of racing cars (almost)...

Vettel2_zpsb55cbb7d.jpg

Adrian Newey's car.

 

cheetah3_zps7c49da51.jpg

Adrian Newey's pet cat (and if you happen to pass this way, Singapore Zoo is highly recommended - although the penguins and polar bear are possibly a bit confused).

Fernando being irritated by his Ferrari.

Fernando with an eye elsewhere.

Meanwhile, live from Suzuka (where it's approaching 5.30am and I've awoken stupidly early)...

Hulk2_zps7e01f1bc.jpg

Nico Hülkenberg's Sauber - the view most familiar to Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, assorted McLaren drivers etc etc. The words 'give', 'him, 'a' and 'job' spring to mind.

 

GvdG1_zps16578025.jpg

Giedo looks forward to fighting for 20th place.

 

Maldonado4_zps4c0cdf74.jpg

Pastor Maldonado introduces himself to the Degner marshals. The words 'give', 'somebody', 'else', 'his' and 'job' spring to mind.

 

Button2_zpsae86720e.jpg

Jenson Button and Suzuka's distant cityscape.

 

Katayama2_zps2487cff8.jpg

Ukyo was delighted to see Lewis Hamilton qualify third in one of his old Tyrrells.

 

Hamilton3_zps50367b6d.jpg

The car in question. By my reckoning, this is a Tyrrell 041.

 

Villeneuve2_zps3ce41f77.jpg

The 1997 world champion wonders why Ukyo Katayama still has so much hair.

I'm having the same problem, I think it is a Chrome thing as it is ok on Firefox. 

The photos in new posts are never there but if you exit the tread and re-enter they appear. 
When I look at Youtube the top three thumbnails on the page are missing.

Steve: it's something to do with some tweaking they've been doing to the board software to fix the problems with resizing pictures to fit on the screen. It appears not to be totally idiot-proof yet. Refreshing the page usually fixes it, but I think it may be Imageshack-related.

 

An alternative approach might be to clear your browser cache, but I'm not sure that works for everyone, as it may be browser and/or operating system specific.

Ferrari's code system has become so complex that Felipe no longer appears to understand team orders. Funny, that.

I am, Geoff, but I'm not doing much in the way of F1 at present. So far this year I've attended but one grand prix - Spain - and there didn't seem much point starting a new thread on that basis.

 

I will contribute bits and bobs during the year, I'm sure, as I'm likely to attend 45-50 events of one sort or another.

I've got a bit of Formula Ford from last weekend.... :cool:

From my vantage point here, with my head well-buried in the sand, is that a current Formula Ford, Alan? The reason I ask is because I caught a bit of the GB FF Championship round from the saloon car meeting at Oulton yesterday on ITV4, and those cars all had wings and looked more like what we fondly remember as FF2000 cars. What's more, they all looked the same - is it a one-make formula? If so, how very sad

It's Tom Hodgson in his Swift SC94.

I much prefer the the shape and configuration of pre 90 FF1600 and the modern incarnation is a disaster!

Slicks, wings, sequential boxes, centre-lock wheels and data-logging... yes it's along way from the Kent-engined days...

This page:
http://www.britishfo...season/the-car/
outlines the Ford 'EcoBoost' spec...
Interesting that, as its 'headline' picture it shows a car with a broken front wing, which seems to suggest that the specification militates against the kind of very close racing that FF1600 was famous for.

My understanding is that it remains (as one of a dwindling number) a category that is not a single-chassis formula.

The Swift in the pic posted above, running on ACB10s - is that a later car built for a Kent engine or a Zetec car? (From memory, the Zetecs appeared in '93, but I was thinking that ACB10s came in later).

Ecoboost Formula Ford 's many excellent qualities are that they are very quick - FRenault fast - and err.. ..err..that's it . They look huge and are ugly , they sound ghastly , overtaking doesn't happen much , if at all , and the grids are tiny, even though they support BTCC . The tragedy is that now that F Renault is moribund and F3 is a joke it's about all we have in the way of modern single seater racing- yes there's F4 but I don't know very much about it and have never seen it  . When I were a lad we had domestic  F5000, F2 , F3 and heaps of FF1600. And now it's all gone down the pan- thank God for historics
