Tomorrow I’m heading up to Birmingham for the start of the Autosport International show. If there’s anything you’re particularly interested in going on at the show let me know and I’ll try to report back. In the meantime, here’s today’s round-up:
Adrian Campos tells the BBC “we are very near a budget”. However Corriere dello Sport believes Bruno Senna is on on his way to Toro Rosso.
Comment of the day
On the article about Nelson Piquet Jnr heading to NASCAR, PJA asked a series of questions I’d like to hear some more answers to:
Could anyone please tell me how the NASCAR community in general view the events of Singapore 2008, was the race fixing scandal even big news in America other than with F1 fans?
Also what is the opinion on Piquet Jnr himself with NASCAR followers, will he be just another former F1 driver, and is that generally a positive or a negative, I know a few F1 fans make jokes about NASCAR such as only turning left and seem to look down on it so I wondered what NASCAR thought of F1?
If he came back to F1 I wouldn?óÔé¼Ôäót be surprised if he received a hostile reception from spectators, what are the chances of a response like this from NASCAR fans?
From the forum
I’m hugely impressed by some of the Photoshopping skills on display in the forum. Have a look at this Repsol-liveried Toro Rosso. Will have to do an article later to round up some of the best efforts.
Got one update going on the site today, will have an article up explaining all in a few hours’ time.
On this day in F1
Remember when F1 teams were allowed to test when they pleased? Three years ago Renault took their new F1 car secretly to Silverstone and a few spy pictures leaked out.
