I wonder what is going to happen to Pirelli and Merc at this F1 Tribunal? I hope it doesn't drive out Pirelli, it sounds like no one else is interested in taking a tire contract for F1 Anyone hear anything on this topic?

Its an interesting one. Its difficult to say that Pirelli cheated - although they did help Mercedes to cheat - because they are in a monopoly situation. Mercedes - if the rumours turn out to be facts - DID cheat.

Trouble is, F1 needs Mercedes in the game - there are a number of teams struggling to survive as it is - so they can't be too hard on them.

Its not looking too good for the Silver Arrows is it? Ross Brawn to be the sacrificial lamb per chance?

You may be right Warspite, we will for sure find out tomorrow. I wonder if anything will happen to Pirelli, they seem to be exempt from the FIA jurisdiction.

Squeaky bum time - the start of a Grand Prix. You can't beat it for tension, excitement, nerves.....

Come on Lewis, Jenson, Paul and Max. If not, then Mark...or anyone but Vettel.....

Yes!! Vettel out - sadly Lewis cannot benefit - but about time he suffered some bad luck.

Robert, can you recommend a good Formula One racing game for the PC that in includes realism and action, in other words just like driving and being at the track? Thanks!

Patrick, sorry but no. I am afraid I have no hand/eye co-ordination for those type of games . I have F1 for my little warspite's Wii, but only played it a couple of times. When I first got it I tried it without all the driver aids. Seriously, I couldn't keep it going in the right direction....on the straight

I cannot wait to see this... Not out until September but the trailer is really promising. The guy who plays Nikki Lauda, looks and sounds just like him and the gorgeous Alexandra Maria Lara (Downfall) as Marlene Lauda is a superb choice. The cars look so authentic - the March, the Lotus, the McLaren, the Ferrari, the Ligier wow, just wow and the circuits.

...and so the Grand Prix circus moves on to Deutschland...but will the race take place or will the drivers strike? I guess we will know after the first couple of practice sessions - any tyre failures and it could be all over.

If the race is on - can Rosberg win his home race and really begin a challenge for Vettel's crown?

I have http://www.formula1-game.com/us/ and it is a most excellent game. You can customize the driving style so its not so difficult but still have a lot of fun with car setups too. The career mode is awesome, you start in the lower class of cars and you can easily work you way up to the top notch teams in a few seasons. Its a must have for a F1 fan IMO

Go Lewis!

I'm sure the Silver Arrows will be no match for the Red Bulls in race condition , but at least he got the pole

...oh well never mind.

And this weekend we are off to Hungary, the scene of one of the greatest Grand Prix wins by anybody - Nigel Mansell 1989 and one of the unluckiest losses - Damon Hill in 1997 Would have won the only Grand Prix win for the, now defunct, Arrows team had he not had a car malfunction on the last lap.
