And if this year's McLaren is any good is probably going to be because of him:?I spend a lot of time with my aerodynamicists, questioning them, and I?m sure they look at me and go, ?He?s just a driver, what?s he talking about??? smiles Lewis. ?But I have a proven understanding of the engineering of my car. This year, I was responsible for one of the upgrades that brought us three points of downforce in Spa. We didn?t really perform that weekend, but it stayed on the carfor the rest of the year and it helped. It was something I forced and got put on the car, and it was better, and it was great. You know, I was going to put my signature on it...?

With some things they?ll say, ?Actually, your right,? and I?ve got to continue doing that. I really feel I?m having more input into my car than others are in their car in other teams.?
Will be better this year though, since most of the major work is done. I wonder if i should email the BBC guys, since i think they had issues looking for food last year. Contemplating on walkaround tickets or Connaught grandstand, NP.Jr corner was pretty funny when Grosjean decided to emulate it. Let me hunt down some shitty pictures taken off my phone.Yes, those corners are there specifically to accommodate more seats, I imagine.
And yes, it was construction that made the grip conditions worse. In 2009, construction continued 24x7 so as fast as cars swept the track clean, more stuff would accumulate when they were parked.
:lol: Some things just never change...Schumacher asks for number swap
Michael Schumacher has asked his team for permission to change race numbers with teammate Nico Rosberg citing superstition as the reason.
Currently, the seven-time champion is due to drive a Mercedes bearing the number 4 while teammate Rosberg will wear the number 3 on his nose and flanks.
While the move would also need the approval of the FIA, Schumacher insists that his request has nothing to do with status but everything to do with Lady Luck and superstition.
"Ross knows that I prefer to have odd race numbers," he told Bild.
While Schumacher did sport the number 1 for much of his F1 career he also sported 19 and 5 at Benetton, and 3 and 5 at Ferrari, however, on his debut with Jordan at Spa Francorchamps in 1991 his car sported the number 32. Then again, it didn't complete the first lap.
