      Haha, I spent a fair bit of time today trying to find the fastest ever quali lap around Monaco, and during that process looked over those figures and didn't even notice the smaller gap in the times.



      And I still couldn't find a definitive source for the fast quali lap. Would have been quicker to simply compare the pole positions over the last 25 years, haha.

      I'm sure he will say it's Hamiltons fault, too.

      The Proclaimers are playing. Three times - i.e. every night! Bananarama are also playing twice.
      I'm gonna have to go searching for all my old Bananarama t-shirts because it looks like I'll be in Singapore Sep 17-23.

      Who else is going this year?

      I'm doing the hotel thing as usual, so won't be at the track. If you've not yet bought track tickets, send me a PM.

      For all this time, Ross Brawn has been posting here as The Pork Hunt.
      ======================================
      Ross Brawn reckons the second half of this season needs fewer different winners than the first half if the sport wants to keep the public interest.

      With seven different race winners in the first seven grands prix of this season it wasn't until Fernando Alonso at June's European GP that F1 finally had a double winner for the campaign.

      But while some hailed the changes, adamant it has added to the excitement, Brawn reckons less 'randomness' is needed in the second half of the season.

      "For F1, we must make sure that the random factor is not too strong," Brawn told Autosport.

      "I think there have been some random elements of this year that have been exciting, but I actually think that [the excitement] will fade after a while if it stays too random.

      "There is a funny analogy to fishing, which I was thinking about the other day. In fishing, the great thing is that a complete beginner can come along and catch a huge fish, because there is a randomness to it.

      "That is what makes it really fun for participants - but that doesn't make it a very good spectator sport.

      "What we cannot have in motorsport is a randomness where you don't know who is going to win, and that you could work really hard to improve the car but your car doesn't suit the conditions and you are not competitive. That is not where we want to be.

      Formula One's spate of different winners was largely attributed to the Pirelli tyres with Brawn confident that has teams gain a greater understanding of the rubber there will be more consistency.

      "To some degree things do appear to be getting better, but the differentials you are getting in teams with their two drivers are still curious. One weekend with Red Bull you have Mark (Webber) almost dominating, and the next weekend it is Sebastian (Vettel) - and no one really understands that.

      "There is a pattern emerging, and a trend emerging, as we all get more competent with the tyres. I suspect that is what will happen and, as long as it does happen, that is fine. But what we don't want is the randomness.

      "I think there has to be a pattern. There has to be a team or two that are the reference point, and others are trying to beat them and aspire to beat them.

      "You need that order for people to enjoy the season, and enjoy the whole year - otherwise there is a randomness and someone who gets it slightly better than someone else might have accumulated more points.

      "We want to see guys racing each other. We want to see the guys who are first and second in the World Championship being out in front racing each other hard, not one in the midfield and one running away with it because that weekend they got the tyres right."

      ===========================

      Personally, I think he's wrong.
