    April 30th, 20 years after, by his team mate David Brabham

    http://www.brabham.co.uk/news/david-brabham-blog-imola-1994/


    in light of tomorrow's day Sky Sports F1 has released a feature too. Haven't seen it yet, but apparently it's brilliant as well



    can't really believe this happened 20 years ago, I remember that whole weekend as if it was yesterday

    Here's something you might be interested in then search - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01y3p2j

    Radio programme next Monday (but presumably on the iplayer after that for a week).

    Quote
    The Boy From Brazil - Ayrton Senna in Norfolk
    Duration: 1 hour
    First broadcast: Monday 05 May 2014
    Marking the 20th anniversary of his death at the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix, Rob Bonnet presents a look back at Ayrton Senna's early career in Norfolk, and the years before his world championships with McLaren and his infamous rivalry with Alain Prost.

    The Boy From Brazil tells the story of Senna's first years as a racing driver, arriving to live in Norfolk in 1981 and moving up through the ranks from Formula Ford, to his tooth-and-nail battle with King's Lynn's Martin Brundle for the British Formula Three championship, and making his name in Formula One with the last ever victories won by Ketteringham Hall-based Team Lotus. Featuring new interviews with his Formula Ford team bosses, Martin Brundle, and former Lotus mechanics, along with rarely-heard archive commentary from Senna's pre-Formula One days.

    Can't vouch for it being any good or saying anything new, but there it is.

    yeh, not sure its a good move. The usual Toro Rosso policy is to give the young drivers ~two years to convince them of their abilities - so if he needs some time to acclimatize his career could be over at the age of 19

    Not long now till the penultimate race in Brazil where we expect a Mercedes one two with Lewis winning. Then of to the double points race in Abu Dabih where Lewis develops a mysterious electrical or braking problem and DNF and the second best driver wins the race and the championship.
    Bernie I hope you havet flipped this right up..

    Caterham's crowdfunding attempt to make it to the grid for the Abu Dhabi grand prix is stuck at ~50% for a while now, doesn't look like they will reach those ~2.3 million gpb

    This link caught my eye as I was flicking through my Twitter newsfeed yesterday, only because it was written by a certain Paul Kimmage.

    Also because I think Eddie Jordan is awesome - and this article confirms it.

    Nice, Lewis triple world champion.

    Nice, Button gets a 6th place that must feel like a win.

    Not so nice, Rosberg looked really peeed on the podium

    And Sir Elton wants to stop eating all the pies

    I met Elton John about 15 years ago, and I can confirm that his pie intake appears to have been consistent between then and now.

    Nico Rosberg I've never met, but it's been clear from watching F1 over the last few years that he is missing that edge that would allow him to be a champion. Listening to radio messages from various races, for example, where something is not going his way, and he just sounds like he's whining. Lewis, meanwhile - much like Vettel, Alonso[1] and Raikkonen - just refocusses and gets the job done. Yesterday's race must have been one of the most mentally challenging with the conditions on track continually evolving and the number of other incidents and subsequent changes to strategy.

    Added to all that was the emotion of Hamilton's championship win - decided, let's not forget - in what was essentially a 10-lap sprint race after the final safety car period. So it's no wonder he looked exhausted in the cool-down room afterwards. And he had the good grace to embrace Rosberg. And then he threw over the hat ready for the podium presentation. Why Rosberg felt the need to throw it back - with force, directly at Hamilton - only he can answer. Embarrassing for him and the team that the following video was broadcast to the whole track on the big screens!



    Also - this tweet made me laugh this morning... As Archieboy said, Button must have felt like a winner yesterday. A pity that Alonso had a technical issue that denied the team their best finish of the season, but Button finished 6th in a race where the Hondas were able to hold station because of their own pace. They even did some overtaking!

    yeah, it was a decent race , but lets hope Rosberg can up his game next year again. The way he lost the last chance to win the championship (well, it was lost anyway, but you know what I mean) yesterday fitted just too well into his level of performances this season...

    for the real drama yesterday you had to watch MotoGP by the way :win

    Easy to criticise other sports I suppose, but I can't get the love for Hamilton, he is so bland, so PR coached, so completely uninteresting and unremarkable in every interview, and has triumphed in a sport where it could only be him or his team mate this season. Pah!

    Got to love a bit of Alonso. Seriously impressive in Indy.

    Also good to finally have a real good battle for the f1 world championship. The closeness, and the difficulty of overtaking have made this season really good to watch. Now just to address DRS.
