    @UK
    Yes, it is true both Alex and Steve Slater will be commentating during the races. As it is a extended highlights package so they will be showing only the exciting parts of the races and not the complete race. This program was started in November for the HongKong and other far-East countries but they didnot show the program in sub-continent region.

    Here is the pic of the existing F1 circuit at Silverstone.
    -Formula 1  - Season 2010 - -9230

    Now the new circuit which is design for MotoGP race as Silverstone will start to host MotoGP race from next season is as follows
    "The track will be slightly longer than the Grand Prix circuit, as it uses parts of the three main configurations at Silverstone – the Grand Prix circuit from the start-finish to Abbey corner, then turns right to go up part of the International layout in reverse, before joining the National Circuit's straight from a left-hand hairpin known as the Arrowhead. Having negotiated the straight, the bikes will rejoin the Grand Prix circuit at Brooklands." Courtesy to Wikipedia
    So they are changing from Club to Brookland section of existing F1 circuit.

    @genius83

    Thanks for giving the timings. Luckily i don't have ESPN these days Not going to comment to much on the `96 Spanish GP, but Ferrari has always been a good car in the wet for some reason, and Williams quite the opposite. That day, Williams had dialed in a dry set up on Hill's car and it was Villeneuve's 3rd or 4th wet race ever, not just F1, but of his racing career. Anyway, if you can find the 1995 Japanese GP some where, then try watching that, a lovely race. The list is all Schumacher wins except one, and personally i don't think they are classics with the exception of the Spanish GP in `96. He had many better race wins than the ones being shown. Just my opinion.

    Default LOL! Bernie is crazy

    Big week ahead for F1 in Monaco


    The world of motorsport is gathering this week in Monaco for a series of meetings culminating in the World Motor Sport Council on Friday and the gala World Championship presentations on Friday night.
    There are a number of items on the agenda at key meetings for F1 teams and stakeholders this week, the first with Jean Todt as president of the FIA.
    The F1 commission is meeting for the first time in four years and although it is unlikely to agree any significant new measures for next year, because teams would have to agree unanimously, it looks like there could be some interesting refinements of how the race and qualifying will be run and there could be some votes on measures for 2011, which only require a majority. There is talk that some in season testing may be voted back in 2011, as the current situation has proved to be difficult for teams, particularly with bringing on young drivers.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    @UK
    I only wanted to watch old races to find some thing which nowadays we are missing and I have find something the reliability difference of engines between old days and nowadays. I have not been able to watch any race highlights because of KESC but I was able to see the start of British GP and Martin Brundle's McLaren Peugeot had a engine blow up at the very start of the race. While within first 10 laps a Lotus also had a engine blowup, Nowadays such things are almost unimaginable.
    Well regarding Spanish GP I also thinks that Ferrari was perfectly setup for that circuit and those conditions just like Vettel's STR Ferrari in 2008 for Monza's wet GP. For me the best race of Michal's Hungarian GP 1998 where he wins with 4 pitstops and done some astonishing fast laps on a circuit which don't provide much overtaking oppurtunity. The worst race victory of Michal's career is Indy 2005.
    When ESPNStar started the program F1 Classics they have said that they will show races from past 20 years but the first 5 races are from mid 90's so I am a bit disappointed.
    Also do you know that the Silverstone upgradation plan was been proposed back in 2001 with the completion date was set in 2003 just before the British GP. Here is the link

    @mani1
    No further updates about Michal until new year.

    You are right about the 1998 Hungarian GP as one of Schumacher's best wins. There are others like the French GP `04, where his strategy was changed mid way through the race putting him on four stops i think and he managed to win. Spanish GP,`94, when he was stuck in fifth gear i think, and managed to win. His first race back, after being given that silly two race ban in 1994, at Jerez. His drive at Nurbergring, `95, and others. As for his worst race or races, there are so many
    The Belgian GP that was shown from `95 is a joke. About half a dozen cars or maybe more, all capable of winning, that were in front of him, broke down when in the lead of the race. Hill got a drive through penalty for speeding in the pitlane, which meant both Williams, both Ferrari cars, Hakkinen's Mclaren, Johnny Herbert's Benetton who lead right at the start and was Schumacher's team mate, spun on lap 3 or something. I think all these cars broke down while leading the race.

    Bernie is crazy, he wants to bring fake excitement to F1, and make it WWF or WWE, what ever that crap is. I didn't know about the plan to modify Silverstone, looking at the link you provided, I hope it remains as dull as it is. It will still be a lot better than any Hermann Tilke designed rubbish.

    ps Is load shedding still continuing?

    I was talking about this race. This is not only a good race, but also an illustration of how competitive although unreliable the Ferrari actually was before Schumacher's arrival, contrary to what people think, and also what a rain master he really was before he got in a Ferrari Am posting the first video, go on from there up to about part 7.

    I know there are many races which could be said as Michal's bad wins but Indy 2005 was a unique one because if Michellin cars have not pullout of the race then the chances of Michal's victory are so low that it needs a miracle for him to win the race and also because this is his only victory that season and if he can't win that race then this season could become his only full season where he remains winless.
    I hope what Fry is saying becomes a reality and we will be able to watch races on internet without using any backdoor methods.
    If Bernie wants to give fake entertainment then try providing a Wacky Races type of accessories in every car including(nails, small tank of oil, waterballoons) and also by installing sprinkler system around the track so that fake rains will be possible or otherwise he can't compete with Mr. McMahon(Chairman WWE) because the later could have a match of no rules apply format where every thing is allowed to beat the opponent.

    I was hopping the winner would be given 100 points, 75 for second place, 50 for third, 25 for fourth, and after that giving points so that every loser on the grid scores something, just in the name of accommodating new teams!! Or better, lets have as many points as there are cars on the grid, say 26 points on offer if it's a 26 car field, and give the winner 26 points, second placed man 25, third 24 points so on and so forth. The artificial World championship will always go down to the last race with five, six drivers in the hunt for the title, if not more. The only good thing in the current scoring system is rewarding the winner with a bigger points gap to second placed man. Try fighting for the world title in an inferior car now, when the likes of a mediocre Button has something like the Brawn GP for the first four , five rounds and the better driver in a struggling Mclaren, Ferrari, Mercedes, or Renault. Good luck making up that kinda gap, especially with no in-season testing allowed. Whoever has a good car at the start of next year, provided he is a half decent driver, has got the championship in the bag. And imagine if it turns out to be the likes of Alonso, Hamilton or Kubica with a dominant car. They don't even make mistakes to give someone a chance.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    Drivers vote Senna the greatest ever


    Three-time world champion Ayrton Senna has been voted the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time by a unique poll of 217 of his fellow world championship drivers conducted by AUTOSPORT magazine. Senna beat Michael Schumacher and Juan Manuel Fangio to top spot in the unique poll, which is the most comprehensive survey of F1 drivers ever conducted.
    The voters had a combined total of 9194 starts and 270 wins, and included starters from all but 10 world championship grands prix (the 11 world championship Indianapolis 500s were excluded from the poll).
    Among the voters were Michael Schumacher, statistically the most successful F1 driver in history, Jose Froilan Gonzalez, the earliest surviving grand prix winner, Paul Pietsch, at 98 the oldest living driver, reigning world champion Jenson Button and much of the current F1 grid.
    AUTOSPORT asked each voter to submit their top 10 'greatest' F1 drivers, and left the definition of 'greatest' open to interpretation.
    "This is an amazing poll that has never been tried before," said AUTOSPORT editor Andrew van de Burgt. "Obviously, it has thrown up some interesting and unexpected results, but you can't argue with how the top 10 has worked out, or the integrity of the poll."
