    Ricciardo is a 3-time Grand Prix winner (should be 4-time - dammit red bull) and starting from 5th on the grid, miles in front of the first kiwi, Mitch Evans who is 10th in GP2 (feeder series to Formula 1).

    I don't think that there are any Belgian stewards for the race - so hopefully no bias there

    Yep I sure did - the first 10 laps were bonkers.
    Italy should be fun to watch - Mercedes, Ferrari and Williams all have a shot (Mercs the most likely to win - again)

    I really enjoyed that race.
    The pommy commentary and pre-race is fantastic and isn't Ricciardo a bankable bloke?

    Brundle is easily the best on sky sports.
    Crofty is biased towards Lewis Hamilton a fair bit but he can be okay.
    Ted Kravitz occasionally has moments of extreme bias to Lewis but is generally good
    Herbert....the worst. Lost a lot of respect for him after his article on Alonso post-Australia
    Watched the Channel 4 commentary a couple of times on channel 10 (when 10 are showing a race) and they are excellent
    Danny Ric is definitely a bankable bloke

    What did Herbert write?

    After the Australian GP (where Alonso had that massive crash) he wrote an article saying that Alonso should retire, saying that the chest injury he suffered was a sign of "Alonso's abilities deteriorating". It was full of shit, which is what pissed me off and made me lose respect for his writing.
    Alonso then said this to Herbert in Bahrain:

    Torpedo, my penance for making my wife sit with me in foreign sports bars watching rugby is that we watch every minute of F1. Will be here with you for rest of season.

    I think this photo is not so memorable for the boot skul (who hasn't done that?) but rather that it captures Nico smiling :eek:

    They have to do something to even up the races and get more cars with a chance of winning or getting on the podium.
    The DRS is just a different imbalance in that the overtaking car has an apparently enormous advantage.
