Britain 2008 - Free Practice 1 // The live commenting action begins, at home and at the track

Published by Mr. C

We're taking a belt and braces approach to live commenting this weekend, so this post might appear a while before free practice begins. However, if you're reading this at all, then we're halfway there (probably literally).

The sun is up this morning and the sky is very blue. We've no idea what the weather holds in store so we've packed flip-flops, sun cream, an umbrella and some wellies. A typical English summer day then.

On the driver front, many will be overly familiar with Silverstone given the amount testing done there last week. How much action we'll see this morning is anyone's guess, but hopefully the unpredictability and instability of the climate may help us here.

As you may have already gathered we'll be at the circuit for the whole weekend, while Christine's Mother-in-Law is manning the servers back home. Do be nice to her, it's her first day after all.

It's a 10am start for anyone following in the UK. The two of us should be positioned around the back of the circuit but you'll probably have a better view watching ITV's live stream and following the geeky stats online. Details of other means to keep up with the action are listed on our Formula 1 on the Internet page.

Remember to keep the Allianz track guide close and yell if you're around, either at home or at the track.
