  1. How can Hamilton not see Di Resta when there face to face, bad excuse!

  2. I honestly can’t think of anything that you could do to make the coverage better, Maybe more picture-centric, you have brilliant pictures and you should showcase them more.

    Thinking about it as the coverage is so great and you are getting rising visitor numbers this must mean you’re about to go behind a paywall right? lol

    Congrats on doing a great job Keith.

    (Though I’d love live timing without having to go to the wreck that is F1.com)

  3. Seeing in list form all the articles produced over a race weekend we really are very lucky to have all this insight to the Grand Prix! Thanks!

    Another great race and looking at the polls for driver of the weekend it would appear we are looking at a British 1-2-3! Let’s hope for the same in Belgium! ;)

  4. Trulli turns a corner with power steering update

    I see what you did there.

    1. I thought it was a bit cheesy, but what the hell :-)

      1. I give it 9.5. You stuck the landing, though.

      2. Also: “HRT – Ricciardo shines during late rain shower”


        1. Funnier would have been “Ricciardo cleans up during late shower.”
