Just watched the Roland Ratzenberger programme, very good, suprized they didn't have any of the TV-am footage as it must have been one of his first TV appearances.


The bit that I didn't know was him and Davina McCall. I knew she'd been the MTV reporter while they sponsored Simtek but I didn't know they had a thing and possibly (if my quick Google bought up facts) a lot more.

Nigel Stepney's been killed in a road accident:

He of "Spygate" fame.

Massive shunt for Loic Duval in Le Mans free practice, but thankfully he is apparently OK:

Ouch.

I can't imagine what it would be like to be in that sort of crash.

Incredibly they have rebuilt it and have it running again! Loic won't be racing though for obvious reasons after such an impact.

There is another picture mid-crash on Autosport, upside down flying through the air rebounding off the fencing into the wall, which makes it seem even more incredible that he's pretty much fine:

Modern engineering is a marvellous thing

This video's been going about today - Brands Hatch perhaps need to look at track security?!

Michael Schumacher 'out of coma'

F1 legend Michael Schumacher has left hospital after the skiing accident that nearly killed him, and is no longer in a coma, his family says
Great news but surprising as we'd heard so little about him lately.

You've got to hand it to him, car uncontrollably on fire, stop? Nah I'll finish the stage first.

I watched the preview program at the weekend. It was a bit dull (the program that is).

The batteries aren't big enough for the whole race so the drivers have to jump into a 2nd car half way through - that should be fun!

Yeah seems a bit sedate but I suppose no point in using precious battery on a formation lap. Turned it off already.

I'm watching. Yes that music is damned irritating and unnecessary, combined with the ridiculous FanBoost (I can't bring myself to support the series for the year whilst they're doing that, but I did want to watch the first race) and this series is annoying me already.
