Not F1 related but it came through the guys at Sidepodcast. Check it out if you don't already know about it.

Like we don't have enough lame Tilke tracks (particularly street circuits)

Argh! Surely Bernie can see this isn't good for Formula 1? Races on grey streets where people can't overtake. I'm sure he'll go on about spectacle, but Bernie, I've been to Silverstone, I've seen them carve flat through Maggots and Becketts then have a go into Stowe, I saw Hamilton shut the door on Heidfeld at 190mph. We want racing not Bernie's vision 'look they're going 160mph, then braking for these 57 right angled corners, on streets!'.

I actually agree with Eddie Jordan; Spa, Monza, Silverstone, Monaco, Suzuka - sancrosanct races.

This is the silly thing, he talks about spectacle. Sure, Singapore is a spectacle, with the lights of the city around the circuit. Sure, Abu Dhabi is a spectacle, they've created an artificial race circuit on an artificial island [and if you believe the Qadbak rumours, with artificial money!].

How far does spectacle go? Does he want to create a huge indoor arena on the moon? That'd be a spectacle! But only because it was on the moon.

True spectacle should mean wheel to wheel action at 180mph scrapping for every last metre of track for 50, 60 laps every week/fortnight. The stupid thing is, that kind of spectacle would bring in more viewers, and ultimately more money for the greedy gits.

Haven't got the link at the moment but Massa's been having a few words with the Brazilian media about how he beat Kimi in 2007 (what?), 2008 and 2009.

Oh, hi Fernando

Button and his manager had a little trip round McLaren factory today...I hope he stays at Brawn. To be fair though, I don't think it's as money oriented as some will make out, I think McLaren will have a well developed car next year.

It's just all part of the bargaining. Brawn need Jenson, they won't be letting him go in a hurry. There's no-one they can really replace him with. McLaren need to show Kimi they have other options so don't need to pay what he wants. It'll all come out in the wash.

It puts the pressure on Kimi to drop his price and Brawn to raise his. Smart play from Button and McLaren.

Lotus are about to announce a driver, according to AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes. People are expecting Trulli, but he's in America watching the Nascar according to Montoya's twitter at least so who knows

^ He has a NASCAR test with Michael Waltrip Racing, so i'm guessing he's been invited by Waltrip to take in some of the show before his test.

I still expect him to be a Lotus driver next year. Him and Gascoyne together could be great for Lotus.

I'm away for one weekend and my teammate on Batracer in a public LMES game gets all huffy, sends me a PM saying 'if you don't do your run i will suck you'.

Granted, I think he probably meant 'sack you', but still. Chill out bro.
