Silly question but as I don't monitor the sport area I missed it last year, is there going to be a Fantasy F1 thread this year?

Love that film. One of the wettest character names for a lead ever - Cole Trickle.

Yep, the real Nascar driver Dick Trickle had a far more interesting name.

All the teams are experimenting with where they can blow the exhaust gases though. Newey's not alone in this.

For every design innovation that he comes up with, Newey probably has 2 or 3 back-ups in case the FIA ban it at some stage.

I see the Oz qualifying is up on BBC2 at 1pm on the Saturday, nothing on BBC1 HD or BBC HD though which will be very disappointing if it remains this way.

Hopefully they're right and my TV guide is wrong, but at the moment I can see BBC2 at 1pm and nothing else, though this is qualifying only.

edit - have just updated my TV guide and the race itself is now showing on BBC1/BBC1 HD at 2pm.

I was planning to watch the first race live on Sky but also watch the highlights on BBC and see which I prefer. If I prefer the BBC I will just watch that from then on and forget the live races on Sky.

Thought Brundle and Coulthard where excellent together, shame they split.

Apparently, DC was the prime force in persuading Brundle to hop to Sky. They'll still travel to the races together and stay in the same hotels.
