  1. Keith, can you embbed the list of all released books about F1. Thank you in advance.

    1. That’s definitely not a plan at the moment, but you can find a selection of some of them here: F1 books

  2. http://www.gpupdate.net/en/f1-news/240438/warwick-schumacher-was-nearly-disqualified/

    Interresting part is this.
    “We interviewed Rubens and Michael and it was kind of disappointing how Michael handled it, so we had no option but to give him a 10-place penalty”

    1. Like with any court system, the admission of guilt can definitely affect the sentence handed out.

  3. Just like to mention that were it not for the new points system, the great fight for tenth place would never have happened.

    1. From the demeanor of both Barricello and Schumacher in this case i think they would have had that fight anyway, just with less reward at stake.

  4. Here’s a replay of all the drama from the pits:

  5. I went to Hungary and I have uploaded a very long review of my weekend in the spectators experiences section of this site, if you have any questions or are thinking of going next year please ask them in the comments on my review there :D
