Slow

This week we discuss the FOTA and GPDA get-together, run through all the action from Turkey, catch up with the Fantasy Racers competition, and get a heap of excellent feedback.

Intro

We're leaving things to the last minute, because if it's good enough for Jenson...

Good week / Bad week

It's been a good week for Donington Park and other European races, but a bad week for the Brabham family as they have an imposter. Also a bad week for Red Bull and their motorhome.

News and views

More about the 2010 season, more smaller teams signing up, plus Force India getting themselves suspended from FOTA for the time being. The drivers pick sides, and we continue to wait.

The race

Turkey is actually really good, even if the race left a little to be desired. Vettel screwed it up from the off, but we saw some great KERS/non-KERS battles. Also, Piquet did well.

Fantasy Racers

I am now 82nd in the league, whilst Mr C is falling ever lower, currently in 325th.

Feedback

We get two emails - a couple of blog plugs, and a question about the show - and three voicemails. Scott in Italy has some thoughts on team orders, Lukeh wants to rename Formula One, and Zoe has some birthday wishes.

Housekeeping

F1 Minute reached 500 shows old this weekend, which is pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. We also discuss our plans, or lack of them, for next weekend. Don't forget Le Mans!
