And so the junior Renault driver crashes his car at turn 17 of the Singapore circuit ...

No, not Piquet. This time it's Grosjean, and in practice. Good grief, Renault are now practising crashing on that corner.

(Renault are looking especially sorry this year, what with two of their sponsors have dropped them in the last day or two as fallout of the scandal. Perhaps they'll have less body decal acreage than Brawn.)

What with all these crashes perhaps they should give free advertising to the British School of Motoring?

And all the new teams next year will have young kids coz they're cheap instead fo people who can actually drive the things.
I wonder if I can bet on the number of safety cars for the whole season?

Actually I'm betting that the new teams next year will have one old bloke in most teams ... someone like Coulthard ... or Alesi or any of the other drivers who lost a seat in the last three years ... I wouldn't even be surprised to see Piquet back, as he's got a millionaire father who's sponsored his son so far, and who has many excellent connections with money. The new teams were enticed in with the $40million budget cap, which has now been rejected, so other teams will be spending $60-$200 million and the new teams need to find money somewhere to compete (Ferrari are rumoured to be a $200 million team, I wouldn't be surprised to find McLaren spending $150million or more)

Well, the line for number of safety cars ought to be set at a bit less than 1 per race, I reckon. If it's 15 or less, I'll take the over. 19 or more, I'll take the under. Inbetween, I want to know who's driving first.
