Sæglópur delayed (+advert music, ITV’s F1 title sequence)

The new Sigur Rós EP, ‘Sæglópur’, has been delayed yet again. Which is a bit annoying. It was originally meant to be coming out some time in spring, but was delayed because of the belated success of ‘Hoppípolla’, with the single having to be re-issued after it was used on trailers for ‘Planet Earth’ until […]

2006 United States Grand Prix

What a dull race! James Allen was as usual trying his best to make out that it was the most amazing spectacle ever, but it wasn’t. Apart from all the incidents at the start and an overtaking move for 9th place (don’t get too excited now!) towards the end, absolutely nothing happened apart from Alonso […]

2006 Canadian Grand Prix

I’m a bit late with this one, so I’ll try to keep it brief! I enjoyed the Canadian Grand Prix. There always seemed to be something ready to happen just around the corner. Marbling is common in motor racing, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it causing such trouble for the drivers, with David […]

They only just got in my good books!

F1Fanatic reports that ITV will be hiding the Canadian Grand Prix on their digital channels ITV4 and ITV2. Only highlights will be shown on ITV1. Perhaps ITV think that nobody will notice because of the World Cup. Well they are wrong. You would understand if there were World Cup matches clashing with the F1, but […]

It has nothing to do with the Union

I don’t know why some people get so upset about the fact that some Scottish people don’t like to support England. I find it funny how it has become such a big political issue. Some like to pretend that it shows that the United Kingdom is illegitimate and should be split up into separate nations. […]

2006 British Grand Prix

Lots of talking points, even though there wasn’t that much on-track action. Infact, the first session of qualifying was probably the most interesting part of the whole weekend. Track conditions were clearly not too good, probably as a result of Silverstone’s famously unpredictable wind conditions. All of the drivers seemed to be struggling badly until […]

The big World Cup debate

I always quite look forward to the World Cup, but when it actually comes along I usually don’t pay as much attention to it as I expected. But on the 31st of May 2006, I can say that I am looking forward to the World Cup. Of course, here in Scotland the big debate is: […]

Cheating Ferrari strike again

Michael Schumacher — not brave enough to let anybody else get a lap in. And of course, because it’s Ferrari, the authorities will turn a blind eye. Update: “Schumacher takes ignominious pole.” Schumacher Takes Controversial Monaco Pole: Schumacher has been guilty of these sort of tactics in the past, and his demeanour in the press […]

2006 European Grand Prizzzzzzz

Oh man. You know how I’ve been in ‘light blogging’ mode because of all that exam malarkey. Well I was going to break my silence today, because there was a Grand Prix today, and I usually write reviews of each Grand Prix. But it’s been a real struggle. That was an immensely boring race, and […]

Block Flash

I have never blocked adverts in my life. I accept that this web malarkey has to be paid for somehow, so I don’t mind websites with adverts on them. As long as they don’t get in the way of what I’m trying to read! Adverts are getting more and more annoying, and it’s all down […]
