F1. Speed. Any questions?

The summer break is over for the F1 Circus, and it's (finally!) time for the teams to get back to racin'!

Friday, 6a-7a, brings us live coverage of 2nd Practice. This is only the second time F1 has raced on the Istanbul track, so this is gonna be important (for once).

Saturday brings us live coverage of the Quals from 6a to 730a. Last year, the triple-apex turn (is it #8?) bit Jensen Button enough to kick him out of an apparant pole run... will the same happen with the new qual format?

Saturday evening brings us the replay of EVERYTHING: 7p is Inside Grand Prix, brought to us by Allianz. "Allianz: we do things with other people's money that makes us rich.", 730pm is practice replay, 8-10p is qual replay.

Then, finally, Sunday brings us the Grand Prix of Turkey, live, at 630a to 9am. The replay is at 1130a to 2pm.

In brief news bits, Renault has lost the ability to use their Hockey Puck in a Coffee Can, better known as their 'mass dampers.' I can't wait to hear why, exactly.

1 I refer you to rule 28.1 section iii:
"If Bernie believes that Ferrari are in with a sporting chance of winning the championship, i.e. they haven't built a car out of concrete blocks and painted wheels on like last year, then he can shift and change the rules to suit so they do"

2 I'm suprised you haven't commented on this article:

I can't imagine it slipped by you, it's just more fuel for the fire.

3 *shrug* I haven't said anything for two reasons:

1) He's no longer in F1, and therefore not particularly all that interesting to me (any similarities between JV and JPM are strictly coincidental); and

2) Jacques Villeneuve was my least favorite driver in F1. Comments like his regarding Parky just point out the fact that he's an idiot.

"F1 will forget (Michael) when he's gone."

A lot of things will happen when Michael retires. F1 forgetting about him is not one of them.
