I love that Anthony has just taken over

He seems to know what he's doing though, so I'll follow his lead.

I think we could cover more. I'd happily be editor or something similar, or a columnist or the social media person, to be honest. How are we going to arrange this? Do we want to set up a bit of a Skype call some time soon to arrange something?

Tiny chat would work, yeah. It shouldn't be too arduous for any of us to set up, hopefully

Make it up as we go along?

I hear the Lotus has a new flywheel KERS that is powered by a crack team of nanohamsters. It's just a rumour, but my source is close to the team...

Funny as that is, unless we literally steal it from somewhere else, it may as well be (again, unless I'm missing something)

This all seems really interesting and I'd be happy to contribute...altough I doubt I'd be able to really do anything important so.

I'll stay on the sidelines I guess, haha.

EDIT: I can comment on a bunch of stuff to make it look like UGF1 gets more traffic than it really does!

Both practice sessions for Malaysia are done by the time I get home from work, lame. Can't watch.

My opinion is to start and focus on F1, but we can add other codes later if we have the bandwidth. New codes can be for the future inclusions list. Lets get the article structures ans social media stuff locked down first and start pumping out pieces.

That Frank Williams certainly has a way with words!

most websites just repost news from elsewhere.

we can still write our own opinion pieces and wrap ups for each weekend. There is a tonne of raw information out there on F1 that you could turn into articles.

It can be a two stage approach - write and share our own news-based opinion pieces, but on social media share the straight news stories from autosport.com, gpupdate.net etc (which is similar to what the 'F1 Around The World' FB page does and is really good at it) so we are seen as a 'one stop' news hub as well as a more in depth blog opinion source when drilling down. Similar to when someone posts in here with something interesting to say 'hey check out this news' and everyone can read it.

I'm always on motorsport news sites so I can head this up. Mind you, this would be something on SM ONLY, not on the website itself where our written pieces are. That way we aren't plaigerising, we are only sharing.

A lot of them pay Reuters or other people for their stories, then they all carry the same stuff. If one of these just released stories is re-written to be more entertaining, maybe even funny in parts and published fast it can only look good on us.

I've been working for hrs on a brochure in InDesign so I'm done for a while but I'll try and do a few logos for tomorrow.

Do you guys have Google accounts? A Google+ Circle (and Hangout) would be a real easy way to communicate.

Well I'm pretty sure if you have a Youtube or GMail account, you have a Google account. Could be wrong about that. If I'm not, you may already automatically have a G+ account, but even if you don't, it's extremely easy to activate.

Yes lets take this discussion elsewhere, its a great plan but I think we have enough to go on that we can build and not clog up this thread from the regular motorsport happenings.


Nothing much has happened in FP1 so far - Guitarz had a spin, Kimi had a KERS issue, that's about it.

Nick Fry sacked from Mercedes as the team's CEO (but kept as a consultant, work that one out), Toto Wolff to take on his managerial responsibilities.
