    Just flashed up that John Surtees has passed away.

    RIP to the only person to have held motorcycle and F1 world titles.

    A motor racing great and a gentleman.

    Just a bit of unbelievable Juan Pablo to treat yourself to on a Sunday afternoon. What a talent.

    Done. I wonder if f1 will listen but not react too hastily without thinking. Thats what I hope the new bosses will do.

    F1 and WEC linked? Whilst F1 liveries have improved this season it seems the Toyota and Porsche have decided on identical liveries.

    So the question is why?

    Alonso wants to, but why not next year - unless he thinks he won't be able to because of a new team? F1/LeMans?

    Who is going to step in?

    He'd do well to remember what happened to Nigel Mansell and Nelson Piquet when they attempted Ovals for the first time having stepped straight from an F1 car ...............
