Okay, one more post about the Olympics then…

This post includes some stuff that I might have written about in yesterday’s post if it wasn’t getting late. Plus, I had gone on and on for 1,000 words already which is quite enough for one post. Chris Applegate said on Twitter: One thing more tedious than the Olympics is people droning about how tedious […]

How I watch Formula 1

Last week Ollie at BlogF1 wrote about the set-up he uses at home to watch Formula 1. He threw the question back to his readers: how do you watch F1? Here is my answer. If you click through to the photo’s Flickr page you will see the notes I have written to explain everything. But […]

What’s happening to FOM’s infrastructure?

One of the more minor talking points of the German Grand Prix was the failure of the live timing system provided by FOM. This is not the first time FOM’s timing systems have failed. In fact, a failure is a relatively common occurrence, and the odd glitch is to be expected in any system as […]

Who I’d like to see on the BBC

The news that the BBC have got the rights to show Formula 1 from next season have been very exciting. Articles about what we might be getting from the BBC still pop up from time to time on various blogs and occasional snatches of news and rumours make the picture clearer slowly but surely. But […]

The future of 5 Live

Radio 5 Live has a new controller, Adrian van Klaveren. This is of interest to me because pretty much whenever I listen to the radio it is Radio 5 Live. No doubt he will want to make his presence felt and will be making changes soon enough. So it’s a good opportunity to have a […]
