    Shame you guys don't get BBC coverage. It's up there with the best!

    Can't wait for the top drivers to come out over the next few days. Can't wait to see the difference, if any, when Button and Hamilton start to play!

    That is cause I don't have cable TV, but sattellite tv. The Sat provider doesn't give BBC with it, needs an other sattellitte LNB orso. While all cable-providers also give BBC.. Cable just isn't available here.

    I watch it on BBC and switch the commentary feed to BBC Radio 5 Live (much better IMHO).

    Button was 7 tenths slower than Hamilton yesterday. Counting that the track gets faster by every day, it's not a very good sign for him imo. (I thought anyways that Hamilton will beat him, of course this is not the end, we have to wait and see how that battle will go on)

    Comparing livery is ok but more fun IMO to compare the cars designs :) Thanks for the pics David! My conclusion is that the McLaren engine cover is really ugly, so is the Sauber nose. And the Williams reawing is rather odd looking, or somthing like that. :) Other then that, good to see cars on track again!

    I'm happy to see Saubers performance by the way. Kobayashi needs a good car!
