So a few days have passed since the Belgian GP and basically it's been all about that second lap racing incident between Rosberg and Hamilton.

What drama!...

Lewis Hamilton shows off his purple Zonda


Lewis Hamilton put pictures of a couple of his toys out there.   Two things are clear, they are nice toys and he really likes purple!.

Above the interior of Lewis' one off manual gearbox Zonda LH which can occasionally be seen on the streets of Monaco.   Like the outside, it's  also very purple!

Pete's racing in Spec e30 but many of our friends are racing across classes, in GTS, Spec Miata and Honda Challenge.

To all: turn in early with big speed and,  don't lift!

Hamilton and Rosberg crash: who's at fault?

Hamilton and Rosberg touch at Les Combes (via BBC Sport)

Let's have a look at that Hamilton-Rosberg incident for a sec.

Some segments of the motoring media have come down hard on the side of Hamilton while some more sensible, less partisan voices saw it for what it was, two top dogs trying to see who can pee higher on the pole.

"I don't want to depress you mate but..."

1 comment:
If anything summed up qualifying at Spa it was Vettel's race engineer Guillaume "Rocky" Rocquelin's radio transmission to the four time champ right after he secured P3 with a,balls out,  hail Mary lap:

"P3 Great lap. I hate to depress you mate, but we're over 2 seconds off the Mercs..."

Two seconds is crushing. How?

It's probably more than just "the engine" because certainly none of the other Mercedes engined teams came close.

One thing is certain however, nobody else came close to the Silver Arrow top speed at the end of the Kamel straight.  322 km/h 200.8 mph for Rosberg... in the rain.

Vettel hit 317 once but then didn't make the corner at Les Combes.
