Mark Webber has put a curse on Sebastian Vettel. Passing on the luck of the Webbo.

Nico Rosberg did a Michael but a lot more convincingly.

My dying wish is to be able to see Formula One cars go through the swimming pool entrance in the flesh. Greatest site in the F1 calendar, second to none.

Monaco, 1997.

In a dry Sunday warm-up, Williams set their cars up for a dry race and started the race with dry tyres. Schumacher set his car for a wet race, and started with wet tyres. By lap 5, Schumacher was ahead by 22 seconds. He won the race by nearly a minute to future team mate and fellow wet weather specialist Rubens Barrichello, while both Williams drivers crashed out.

Sure as hell made up for the embarrassment of crashing out on the first lap the year earlier.

Mika Salo damaged the front of his car early in the race after colliding with Mika Hakkinen early in the race, but didn’t make a single stop and finished fifth to score two points. These were the last two points ever scored by Tyrrell.
