Thanks for that Andrew, an excellent article.
And deadly for 12000 years is Carbon 14
I missed this news. Very sorry to hear of the prof's passing, he did much to improve safety in Formula 1, saving the lives of several drivers along the way, he'll be sorely missed.
He's not a diamond geezer, or called Joe!
You all go quiet when a Brit doesn't win.
I thought Vettel dedicating the win to Professor Sid Watkins at the post race interview was excellent.
But Alonso still looks the favourite.
Looks like a two horse race now, and I don't think Alonso will be able to pick up enough points to hold off Vettel. Alonso's best hope is for Hamilton and Button to clean up at the front for the next 6 rounds - but I can't see that happening.
Damn shame we were robbed of Hamilton vs Vettel.
Good job, Vettel - a gracious win. Can he repeat 2010's late-season fightback?

With 6 races to go? Let's see where we are after Korea.
While Autosport.com sleeps, The Guardian, 'Mail, Telegraph and BBC.co.uk confirm: Hamilton switches to Mercedes and Perez signs for McLaren.
I just read that. I'm sort of suprised but not if that makes sense. At least it proves EJ doesn't always talk bollards
A bold move by Hamilton if you ask me, particularly as McLaren really seem to have got their car working well this year. Mercedes must have demonstrated they are going to be serious contenders in the next year or so.
On another note, Perez going to McLaren is a bit of a poke in the eye for the prancing horse brigade. It will be interesting to see if the opinion of di Montezemolo was right by suggesting he lacked the required experience.
I said it before, but I think Hamilton's lost the plot, I just can't see Mercedes producing a car capable of competing regularly at the front. Perhaps they're going to start selling inferior customer spec engines from now on, and keeping the good ones for themselves?
Who knows? I think it's a crackers move, but I'm going to be delighted if they prove me wrong.
Great move by McLaren to get Perez, yes he's young and relatively inexperienced, but he's going to prove Mr Montezuma wrong!
