It's Monday so must be seat fitting in the Mp4-23 in which Lewis crossed the line in Brazil to win 2008 championship pic.twitter.com/wHntafcxG0
CONGRATS CAL!!! I LOVE YOU! UR MY FAVORITE MOTOGP RACER!!! I'M PRRROOUUUDD!!! <3 Woohhhhoooooooo!
And cars that look after these tyres will also look after the new ones.
Pirelli have done a great job for F1 overall, I applaud them. We needed more spice, but it's too much right now and I'm pleased its changing
I want to enjoy and spot the fastest current and future drivers, not only the best tyre preservers. 90% of a race event is talking tyres now
It's the same in GP2 + GP3 with tyre deg. Too reliant on invisible subtle suspension geometry, tyre pressure, sprung rates, damper settings
Not nursing the tyres (even in qualy) on a four stopper to avoid needing all six available sets during the race.
Some people missing the point. Multi-stop F1 strategies used to require banzai qualy style laps and unassisted overtaking to make them work
Great to see the return of Honda to F1 with McLaren from 2015. Good news for F1 too. Will be tense between Merc and McLaren in 2014

You can't oversteer it but you can 'overcook' it like you can in a car :p
Went on cooking course for new steam oven we've bought. Quite enjoyed it unfortunately. Not exactly rock-n-roll high speed oversteer is it?
thoroughly agree with your column today on the Sky website. I'm a racing fan, not a tyre conservation fan! Let 'em race!
We aim for 2-3 pit stops. Today was too many, we got it wrong, too aggressive. We will make changes, probably from Silverstone.
Seeing how well Nico Rosberg is driving reminds me what a great job M Schumacher must have been doing last year except for clumsy accidents
Lots of questions for #askCrofty
after qualy today. Room for lots more folks so join in the debate later today. FP3 before that on air now
Good reminder of how F1 life moves on. Alain Prost was loitering at the gate waiting for a paddock pass. His face should have been enough
General paddock consensus is James Allison is leaving Lotus for Ferrari. I suspect Williams have been chasing him hard too,along with others
James Allison leaves Lotus F1, Kimi won't be pleased. Key tech personnel changes as important as top driver moves,in many ways fewer of them
Not been anywhere better in the world than Norfolk UK on the sunny spring day. Other than Silverstone in the fastest car in the race any day
Another sportscar podium in Spa for @AlexBrundle
. Looking forward to Barcelona next weekend now. F1 2013, act two. 'Action'

Today's about shooting flying ashtrays with 12 bore shotgun raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Beautiful day at 'Downton Abbey'
Mayday, remembering Senna. Sad he wasn't enjoying old F3 cars with me at Silverstone. He'd have spoiled my day and been faster though! :))
You are right. HANS devices, safety cells, helmets + headrests are incredible step forward. I really don't know how anyone survived before
: had lost this crash Martin youtu.be/PoUvfST8f20
” yes I'd forgotten that crash, rear brakes failed at Imola, full tanks

King's Lynn M/Club 60th anniv dinner tonight.Reminds me of film nights as a kid, no m/sport on TV, Le Mans race report motivated me big time
Sadly '82 Jag XJS (also driving at Goodwood) +epic '83 F3 (driving on Monday at Silverstone) have clearly shrunk over time in the store ;))
Happy days. Tried on '99 Toyota LM24 (driving at Goodwood FOS) +2001 Bentley LM overalls, they fit well! Also found faded £10 note in pocket

Treat 2013 F1 calendar like a Pirelli. Take it easy in the beginning, don't get greedy for action, then at the end on low fuel go like hell
After Bahrain's dramatic GP, @MBrundleF1
picks his way through an array of post-race opinions & gives his verdict bit.ly/Y1e5iK
Lost yet another pair of sunglasses, this time on the grid. Hope that didn't cause Massa's tyre problems. Or maybe Niki nicked them ;))
The sooner they get rid of DRS the better, hate all this fake overtaking. Fight & challenge of holding a position all but gone
Plenty of interesting stuff to come out of today's race, but here's one for you - the last 55 laps were won by Adrian Sutil!
Hope you enjoyed race as much as me. Pretty aggressive but ultimately fair action. Tyres + DRS still extreme but Alonso passing without DRS
Now for a relaxing glass of red with DC to chill out after a good day. It's good for the blood, and we can scheme the grid war ;))
Good questions team. We talked tyres, fairness of g/box penalties, frustrating day, the race, being thrown out of McLaren garage, etc etc
