    Interesting F1Brits_90, but I can't think of anything.

    'No better place than Barcelona..' Maybe he just likes tapas.

    Barcelona is always the test track so I'm going for lifting the ban on testing.

    Edit - prob wishful thinking on my part.

    They're letting Alonso run a GP2 engine.

    There's a few words to many in that sentence. I think it should be:
    They're letting Alonso run

    It's just struck me that if Liberty and co do have something interesting to announce, it might be to do with the fans at the track. I've been to the last four Barca GPs with the same bunch of friends, but we decided to have a break this year. That'll serve us right for not being there!

    Meh, the man who programmes to stimulator needed to keep up the pretence that these machines are worthwhile.

    As long as he has never worked for Caterham - I seem to recall that they would have 1 sec per lap updates at almost every race back in the day.

    Be great if it happens

    I'm just hoping a race happens. Still really down after the processional Russian race.

    Clearly, the drivers weren't up to the game then. A team can't employ a pair of third class drivers like Webber or worse and expect improvements, a team needs a pair of Alonsos, Hamiltons or Vettels for that to happen.;)

    Turns out it was just putting a few more things on for the fans attending the events. Things most other motor sport events have been doing for years and will prob cost a fortune.

    These cars are starting to get as ugly and ridiculous as the 2008 machines - Mercedes reveals radical scoop as part of major upgrade

    Remember a time when the quickest cars were generally the most pleasing on the eye?

    Can we just move the Spanish GP to Motorland Aragon already? Yes its a Tilke track, but its a very good one, with good elevation, high-speed corners and places to pass.

    another weekend yet another problem, getting more obvious McLaren will have to choose between Alonso or Honda in 2018, because im wondering the strained relationship will last to Abu Dhabi this year nevermind 2018

    i have sympathy for alonso as 3 yrs development in, Merc (2011 - 2014) were dominating F1. Honda (2014 - 2017) have trouble starting a race in sochi nevermind finishing or getting anywhere near a podium. reportedly Alonso has left the circuit and gone back to his hotel & apparently Sky sports have asked Fernando Alonso's manager if the Spaniard will return for FP2 and got the reply "I hope so". now that would be story. but i wouldnt blame him because this is now getting embarrassing on regular basis every race weekend
