      Should have been smarter about my trip home from Munich this weekend. I'm flying Munich to Dubai on Friday night, should have gone to Bahrain instead and got few sessions in....damn.

      Ahh well....

        I'm gonna be really interested to see how Dan goes in this race.

        I'm wondering if the strict Red Bull life Vs freedom at Renault might of effected his race weekend preparations.

          He already said in post race interviews that the volume of media obligations meant he couldn't fully concentrate on the race. I think it was a combined number of things like new car, new team, pressure to perform, media obligations, bad luck...

            I thought that was a legitimate excuse.

            Then I thought... Surely the RBR commitments all year around would be harsher then Renault, he even admitted that the Renault deal meant he had a lot more freedom. He did okay with RBR and all their whacky media pumps.

            I still see his point of view, and kinda agree - but its flimsy.

              New team every man and his dog wants to ask a zillion questions, RBR arenít silly they would have someone on the books noting all the outside of racing stresses and activity then advising if the drivers were being stretched too far away from driving performance.

              At end of the day Dan is human and some times itís just not your day.

                Not to beat a dead horse, but if Dan stays a few inches closer to the track off the start in Melbourne, he goes on to finish top 8 and everyone is satisfied. Not sure how prepping differently could have avoided the result.

                  Melbourne was also Dans home GP so the home broadcaster etc etc all chews up extra time that isnít part of his ďusual weekend at workĒ.

                  Itís probably the same for all drivers in their National GP - thereís just more pressure from everyone that contributes to building all the brands involved.

                  Either way being the 2nd of 4? Races outside Europe in a row Iíd imagine we wonít see much significant improvement from any team beyond tidying up teething issues.

                    Can't wait.

                    I haven't been this excited for a year of F1 for a while now, so many driver changes and the battle for best of the rest will be intense.

                      I was thinking about how interesting the mid pack battle is this year while watching the Melbounre race as thought to myself, is it because the battle is legitimately good or because Australia has some skin in the game
                      of midfield now with Ricci...?

                          Well he could have done a track walk and seen the gutter which is a basic for any driver that has raced professionally in any series.......

                              Track walk or not, the outcome would have been the same.
