  2. Thanks! Just made a new gallery with some more in. You'll think your eyes aren't working right though cos they're all a bit blurry unfortunately!

  3. Excellent. It's so annoying that the pictures can't convey the truely earth shattering noises these things make. Roll on the British Grand Prix!

  4. I was there!!! It was very cool – havent seen you sign in Mr Young, wanted to say thanks, really enjoyed the day!

  5. I could have quoted Ted Kratitz with a Vvvrrryyyyoooouuummmm… nah you're right a picture isn't enough. The best description I can think of is a 19000 (20000+ next year) cordless drills whirring next to your ear plus a pneumatic drill for traction control.

    It was cool indeed!

    Just realised, I've been wearing a Portugal T-shirt all day. Good job i had my coat on, people might have thought I was a Tiago Monteiro fan.

    3 day Silverstone F1 weekend ticket= Free
    Access to Pits = Free
    Transport to Silverstone = Free
    Joy of being eldest offspring and having your father's best friend being feck off wealthy and having many of his fingers in many pies = Priceless!

    I'm so excited!

  7. Being unhealthily jealous of a fellow blogger… £1.89 for cheesecake comfort food to recompence for being the youngest offspring whose father has no rich friends. You've spelt "feck" wrong btw, it's actually spelt psegk .

    Dude, splash out a little more and go for a tube of quality ice-cream. It is the superior buy for these reasons
    1) Never goes off
    2) Turns into cream if left to defrost
    3) Perfect food for revision time, no energy is needed to just let it melt in your mouth
    4) Doesn't leave crumbliness everwhere
    5) Encourages jelly making

    I hereby apologise for my spelling stupidity (a funner person than I would have done spelt one of those words uncorrectly :o] )

  9. I went to see Jordan and Williams testing at Silverstone in April, I stuck a half decent pic of a Jordan in my blog entry back then. Which teams were testing when you went? I'm guessing that's a Renault in your pic, were any other teams there?

    I'm a Mclaren fan personally, would love to see Kimi in action sometime.

  10. I'll bear that in mind next time I'm in Tesco Milly, though I must protest that cheesecake's all about the crumbliness. I'm a mathematician so you could've spelt all those words wrong for all I know.

    It's not that bad a pic is it Amit?! It was the last Silverstone Test before the actual race so they were all there except Sauber and Minardi. Check out the gallery I made up on the left. Kimi's amazing, though I have no idea if I was able to tell that he was quicker than the rest (he was by about a second according to the times) or whether I just saw him and the fact that it was him made the car look quicker!

  11. When I said I had a half-decent pic, I meant that mine was ONLY half-decent, as opposed to yours which is unquiestionably far better! Wasn't taking the piss. Yours looks like it was actually taken on a digital camera – mine was taken on my phone, hence the difference.

  12. lol, don't worry I was only being mock-offended. The way you said "I'm guessing that's a Renault" made me chuckle. You should see the forty or so pics I haven't uploaded, I think a trained chimp could do better.
