  1. I enjoyed that race! There were lots of new aspects to get the hang of, like KERS, big front wings that get knocked off easily, and the big difference between the two compounds.
    The weight data look interesting; where was that available from, formula1.com? I think I better get myself a laptop and do what you do, with all the live data to hand as I watch the race!

  2. I googled for the weight data. Can’t remember what site it was now, sorry.

    Yes, there was a lot to take in, especially because I had only three hours sleep the night before.
