    Glock got a bit of TV time - what Alguersauri was doing back there dicing with him thought I have no idea.

    Been a bit critical of Timo this year but I think he did a good job this weekend. Obviously the laps on the PS3 against FB's little lad did the trick!

    Jaime pitted on lap 15 and dropped to the very back of the field; Timo stayed out until lap 25, one after Alguersuari had got past.

    bloomin heck - they've made a mess of that haven't they?

    I wouldn't worry about them dissaperaing out of F1 in time for 2012 though because dealing with companies house and HMRC on a reg basis I can tell you that these things drag out for a long time and they'd even be allowed to 'trade' whilst in administration.

    It'll put restrictions on their development however and if they do fall into administration then it'll mean that all their ultimately doing is looking for someone to buy the company - whether because of all this Marussia will be free to buy it at a snip I don't know. If they have to look for a completely different buyer they may be in trouble as backers are hard to come by. Some millionare might take a gamble for a £1 though.

    Someone ring Bill Gates!

    It surely is a mess I agree.But it does show quite clearly jusy how intermingled various companies can be.
    I have no doubt it will be sorted without Marussia losing out, indeed as far as I am aware their 2012 F1 entry is Marussia and not the original Manor entry used by Virgin.

    Yeah, cos their current colour scheme reminded me too much of the last failed Russian venture into f1.

    Why dont teams have more original colours like the yellow jordans (lets not go into sponsorships!)? I want to see exotic colours on the grid not just boring colours of nowadays! Also I would like to see a sense of humour like on the HRT's with the words 'In soviet Russia' on the side!

    Interesting talk from Pat Symonds

    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/97139

    Apparently the 2011 car was 'much better than a back of the grid car' and was only let down by the aero's. As the deal with Mclaren includes access to the wind tunnels and aero information it should be interesting to see how much improvement that makes to the car as Symonds is kind of hinting at a leap forward for next year. Something we should expect or just some timely PR to put more pressure on nearest rivals HRT as they go from disastor to disastor?

    Also praises Timo Glock as a developer which is interesting to note - especially as I thought he was a in a strop for most of the season

    I think "Marussia" sounds a bit back-woods and too familiar. Shouldn't it actually be "MotherRussia"?LOL

    A driver might be in a strop, but he still performs.

    Recent examples, Alonso in 2007 & 2008, Hamilton in 2009, Webber in 2010.

    True - but Timo wasn't exactly lighting up the timing boards was he
