Dear Andy and Mooresport

Here, belatedly, are the results from Silverstone; does anybody else think we could do with a bit more movement at the top and bottom of the table?

I might delay publishing results from Germany until the FIA World Council decide if Ferrari should face further penalty after bending the rules concerning applying team orders. But what do you think? Should team orders be banned? Do you think they inevitably affect F1 anyway? Do they spoil the sport for fans?

Let’s see what happens in Hungary…

The shredder.

A young engineer was leaving the office when he found the Acting CEO standing in front of the shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

“Listen,” said the Acting CEO, “this is a very sensitive and important document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?”

“Certainly,” said the young engineer. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

“Excellent, excellent!” said the Acting CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine, “I just need one copy.”

Lesson: Never, ever assume that your boss knows what they’re doing.

After a topsy-turvy race – especially for Mark Webber – here is our topsy-turvy table, which has lots of movement, and our first competitor to reach 1,000 points this season. Will anyone catch these Four Wheels?

See you after Silverstone.
