After almost 4 years the wolf is tired and needs a break. The motivation is no longer there. With that also is gone the willingness to voluntarily sacrifice all the time needed to keep the site going. Even that bare minimum of time the wolf devoted to the site in 2010 … So, after a […]
Here is the second part of my photos from Silverstone. All the pictures below were taken during the free practice sessions, the best time to play around with camera. I had the best spot on Friday morning when I could get very close to the track. Here are the photos. Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the pictures:
I was lucky enough to spend Friday and Saturday of the British GP in the Paddock Club and enjoy all the perks that come with the pass. Here are some of the pictures I took in the Paddock Club and during the pitlane walkabouts. Click on the thumbnails to see the full size pictures:
Few days later than usual as I had to make it back from Silverstone first but the results of round 8 are here. The best score of this round is a massive one – psychy with 27 points – what a score !
There is now three way tie at the top of the provisional standings.
Round 8 results:
The World Motor Sport Council met in Paris on 24 June 2009. The following decisions were taken:

In view of this new agreement and with the prospect of a stable future for Formula One, FIA President Max Mosley has confirmed his decision not to stand for re-election in October this year.
Following overnight meetings between Max Mosley, Bernie Ecclestone and FOTA chairman Luca di Montezemolo Max Mosley announced an agreement between FIA and FOTA. Mosley has agreed not to run again for the president of FIA. The teams will call off the breakaway championship and sign up to a new Concorde Agreement until 2012. Max Mosley: […]
The last day at the track was purely about the Grand Prix. The morning trip from Northampton was very smooth and we arrived at the track in no time. This was perhaps the biggest crowd of this season but you would not notice it at the gates. No delays, everything smooth. It looked like nice […]
Sebastian Vettel won the 2009 British GP after leading it from start to finish (except 2 laps following his second pit stop). Mark Webber finished second ahead or Rubens Barrichello. Jenson Button never recovered from his poor start and finished the race in 6th just behind Felipe Massa and Nico Rosberg. Jarno Trulli and Kimi […]
My day started with the early morning pitlane walk. If anybody gets the chance to do the pitlane walkabout, make sure you don’t miss the one on Saturday morning. It requires rather early wake up but it is well worth it. Not too many people and lots of time to wander around the pitlane. Although […]
Sebastian Vettel will start the 2009 British Grand Prix from the pole postion. Rubens Barrichello will line up next to him on the front row. Mark Webber and Jarno Trulli make up the second row. Kazuki Nakajima will start from his career best P5 while the championship leader Jenson Button could only manage P6 today. […]
It was fun day today. Nice weather although rather cold and windy. The warm jacket definitely came handy. I planned to watch the practice sessions from my seat at the grandstands but at the end I made the most of the Paddock Club pass. Pitlane walkabout, Mumm champagne, F1 simulator, good picture taking spot and […]
The FOTA teams met today at Renault’s Enstone factory ahead of yet another deadline imposed on them by FIA. After the four hour meeting the FOTA teams (Ferrari, McLaren, Renault, BMW Sauber, Toyota, Brawn, Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso) issued this statement: Since the formation of FOTA last September the teams have worked […]
