    It slipped my mind.

    Who? Glad you’re one of us Paul...one of us....one of us...one of us..... I’m pretty sure it was me who hung that nickname on you, using your Stanley knife to slash up my brand new pack of yellow dusters to tie to the support wires for the Stoneleigh entrance frame so no one would garrot themselves walking past it.

    F1 pit lane bust up.

    I’m afraid it’s simple physics. Ocon was on the inside of the right hander, his car slightly behind Max but still 50% overlapped. Max turned in to take the apex without ensuring he was clear of Ocon. Ocon had no place to go (and in fact if you look at the contact photo, Ocon is two wheels off the course and straddling the kerbs trying to avoid Max turning in). Two things can’t be in the same place at once. Contact made. Physics wins. If Max had taken the wide line through the turn (as he should have), no accident. If Max had looked in his mirror or looked to his side to see if he was clear, no accident. Max knew it was Ocon and what he drives like, and should have made allowances. Sorry, but in my books, Max is 100% liable. He turned into Ocon, not the other way around. You turn right across the front of another car 50% overlapped next to you and then try to make an insurance claim saying it was the other drivers fault, and see how far you get. Max is his own worst enemy. He could be a great driver if he lives long enough to mature. It will be interesting to see how he reacts when he has an excellent chassis and probably a worse (Honda) engine next season.

    What hope for Brexit negotiations?

    The B word is banned from my home. Absolutely sick to death of it. Can’t wait for it to be over. It’s like starting a fire in between two houses and watching the forecast to see if the wind changes direction, which house the fire eventually burns down (or both), or if rain puts out the fire, while the two home owners argue over who started it. GET ON WITH IT.

    Today’s Protip

    An old video gaming term - can’t remember the game, but between levels it would give you a “protip” to make you a better player. Popular Internet meme as well.

    Incorrect Forum Spelling - SOLVED!

    I have, at my own expense, created something to blame for those of you who spell incorrectly in posts, or who spell correctly but use the wrong term (to / too / two, their / there / they’re, lose / loose, etc). This is a free of charge service, and you can use it as often as you like. It works quietly in the background. You won’t even know it’s there. Spell checkers are old and outdated, so I give you the future... BLAME THE SPELL CHICKEN!
