Korean Grand Prix.
Korea International Circuit, Yeongam, 14-16 October. 2011.

Typically, its raining as we go into practice session one. I have been twittering about the rain, mainly because I am glad to be watching from the comfort of my arm-chair. I noticed that most of the spectators in the seated areas are actually having to stand because of the rain!

So, imagine the reality of having to pay for a seat, only to find; it is out in the rain and has no drain-holes to let out the puddle of rain-water that has collected! Then, you find you cannot actually see any of the cars going by at high speed, due to the ploom of rain water spray kicked up from the tires.

Yes, I am glad to be watching from home! Initially, the feed to the BBC website was faulty, but we could still watch on the BBC Red Button service, (Channel 301 Freeview). We have the picture back online now. (Time now 3.15am).

The BBC commentary team seem to be on-the-ball with lots of great news and info about what is happening on the track and in the wings behind the scenes! (Like Schuey is officially the oldest F1 driver to drive in an F1GP! - I did not quite hear or understand the whole story, I had two commentaries running and was chatting on Skype. I will look out for that story again later).

Incidentally, if you haven't already bought F1 2010, you might want to to get F1 2011 instead, or, if you are a tight-wallet, (like me), buy a second-hand copy of F1 2010 as the second-hand price should have plummeted after the release date of F1 2011.

Going back to the great BBC commentary today, you know you have good commentators when they do things like hold on a few seconds after a report from the pits, so that we can see or hear the sound of a car pulling away. Great petrol-head stuff!

Petrov took out Schuey on lap 19 / 20, until then Schuey was climbing up the positions reaching 9th from starting 12th on the grid.

There was a great battle for second between Hamilton and Webber, great racing!

This is a Pole Position Post.
