In the round-up: Robert Kubica leaves hospital almost three months after his rally crash.
Top F1 links from the past 24 hours:
“The hospital described Kubica’s condition as ‘good’, adding that he will continue to be monitored by their doctors.”
“When [Lewis Hamilton] unceremoniously fired his dad from his job as manager in March of last year, the genial Anthony redirected his skills into securing Di Resta a drive with Force India, aided by Mercedes, for whom the Scot drove in DTM. The Hamilton familial relationship has since improved and peace has broken out, but Anthony is seldom to be found in the McLaren pit.”
“I’m old enough to get a pension, so I don’t have to get a job. I’d have to be sure the people [who end up owning F1] are people I would like to work with and whether they would want to work with me.”
“Sources say that an India-based company responsible for setting up the F1 circuits in Bahrain and Noida has been scouting around the state for an appropriate location. When contacted, tourism director Swapnil Naik confirmed the development. ‘Yes, we have been approached for a F1 circuit in Goa. We have decided to go ahead with it,’ he said.”

More tips on taking great racing photos from Siv:
With any kind of photography practice is very very important – not only so that you can get good shots but also so that you can spend time enjoying the event rather than staring through the camera the whole time.
You are probably not going to many F1 races so how do you practice? Simple – go to as many circuit days as you can. Could be track days, local races, smaller events (GP2 etc), motobike races etc. If there isn’t a track near you, if you have a highway near you try standing at a safe vantage point and practice your panning shots.

Sadly, it is also ten years to the day since Michele Alboreto lost his life in a sports car accident.
