    Not much material, so bear with me. I'm not sure about next week, maybe we'll have the USGP?
A brilliant 2 for me.

Oh well, looks like its a cap with a letter "D" on it and a chair facing the corner again !!!

Make way for me guys. I'm afraid I've supassed myself this time... oh, wait. No I haven't! I got ONE right! :oops:

Can I borrow that cap with a "D" on it CaT?
The Dominicali dunce's cap is only awarded for zeroness, you should all know that!

I can confirm that next week will be the United States GP quiz including US West, East and Las Vegas!

No questions will be asked about USGPE, my medium is the past. I'm awful at the future people!

I wish Bernie would go back to the traditional heartlands then I could just ask a blanket Middle East quiz for Bahrain/Turkey and be done with it. (Could be called the Massa Quiz!)
