Sorry this is so late we had a very surprising new technology roll out at work on Friday. We decided to roll it out about 10 minutes before it went live.
This was quite in contrast to the telegraphing of Coulthard’s retirement. But it was much more in sync with the sudden dumping of Silverstone. It will be at donnington from 2010.
So as we savour one of the last Silverstone grand prix for a few years we have to ask you dear reader what is going to happen.
The Ferraris always seem to go well here. But at the test last week the McLarens did seem to have made a step forward. Perhaps Lewis will make it on pole but will doing so raise the expectations to untenable heights? And during the race will they be able to keep things together?
At Ferrari Massa seems to have been turning quite a few people’s heads. But Kimi was faster than him in both of the last two races (only losing out because of being crashed into by Lewis or his exhaust falling off).
Remember: if you do ask Lewis to win the British Grand Prix for you he might say, straight away, that he wants to do it. But he will have to ask his Dad first.
Almost as an afterthought I might mention that there is a chance of rain.
We would like your top eight drivers and the pole sitter. And if you were present at Friday practice we would like a full report – you know who you are.
I’m afraid I don’t know the times because I am on the train and it will take too long to look up. Good luck!
