Jenson Button Brings Formula One to Manchester streets 24hrs after 3rd at Spa

Jenson button in Manchester driving his f1 car

More than 50,000 people turned out to see Jenson Button lay on a spectacular driving display in Manchester.

Jenson’s motor hit 105mph as he roared down Deansgate, a shopping zone ransacked by looters earlier this month.

He then performed a series of breathtaking spins and tricks in nearby Albert Square.

In doing so he backed our Reclaim The Streets crusade as his car was emblazoned with an “I Love MCR” sticker to support the fightback against looters and thugs who trashed Britain.

“I wasn’t in the UK when we had the rioting but I’m sure it’s been difficult times for everyone here,” said the 31-year-old.

And he was delighted so many people had turned out to watch him in pouring rain yesterday. “Seeing everyone out there, their spirits are pretty high which is good to see,” he added. “The atmosphere was brilliant. Hopefully this will help the road to recovery.’’

Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery insists his company will be more cautious with its recommended camber guidelines at Monza and after

"Well we will be more conservative [with our recommendations], particularly for somewhere like Monza," he said. "You would have to look back at it and say we were confident with the structure of the tyre, to be honest. We knew that the structure of the tyre was extremely strong, and that was proven to be. There weren't any issues at all. 
"Graining and blistering are aspects of compound performance in motor racing. It is not exactly a new phenomenon, but there are limits. And ordinarily in free practice, when you see something like this, teams would change their geometry and you would not go into a race in that situation, so it was a combination of circumstance in reality."
Hembery admitted some surprise that teams struggling with blistering opted to continue running the soft tyre, rather than go for the more durable - albeit less competitive - medium compound tyre.
"If you look at the medium tyre, you don't get any blistering, it has higher heat resistance," he said. "What we had hoped here, if somebody was in difficulty, that they would have run the race on the prime tyre that would have run without any issues whatsoever. However, everybody went for performance and that was disappointing."

Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund to lease the Silverstone Formula One circuit Northamptonshire England?

Qatar’s sovereign wealth fund is on the verge of a deal to lease the Silverstone Formula One circuit, a British landmark.
The British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC), which owns the circuit, has entered into exclusive talks with the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) to lease the 850-acre Silverstone site for 150 years.
The deal is expected to be worth up to £250mn (about QR1.48bn).
The QIA was selected from a shortlist of interested parties drawn up by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
An investor is needed to cover the costs of redeveloping Silverstone, which opened a state-of-the-art pit and paddock complex earlier this year. The QIA is conducting due diligence and a final decision is expected in the next six months.
A source close to the situation said: “To do all the development, they have had to borrow a massive amount of money and, long-term, the club can’t sustain that. So they want to take a lot of money for a very, very long lease from a substantial entity, perhaps a sovereign fund, which will continue development there.”
As well as sovereign wealth funds, PwC is believed to have focused its approaches on high-net-worth individuals and real estate companies which could help to develop the site.
It is believed that one of the key conditions the BRDC will impose on the investor is that the site must be maintained to a standard to make it suitable to retain the British Grand Prix after 2017, and that the primary purpose of the site must remain as a motor racing venue.
However, land adjacent to the circuit is available for construction work and earlier this month the BRDC submitted a planning application which includes technology and business parks, three hotels, an educational campus and a motorsport museum. 
Such options make the circuit a more attractive investment as they offer the potential to make money other than through hosting F1. Despite a near-capacity crowd for last year’s race, the BRDC reported a £1.9mn pre-tax loss for the year ending December 2010, down from a £1.3mn pre-tax profit.

Big Crash for Hamilton...Stewards say a "racing incident" Eddie Jordan agrees but McLaren´s Martin Whitemarsh does not.

Niki Lauda when interviewed said the fault for the accident laid with Lewis Hamilton as there was no need to move fully to the left to take the right hand corner at the top of the straight, 
that Kobayashi had every right to be where is was and was not the cause of it

McLaren's Lewis Hamilton is despondent following his collision with Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi at the Belgian Grand Prix.

The British driver believes the crash was not his fault. Hamilton admits that McLaren were struggling with the condition of their tyres before his race was ended prematurely.

UPDATE via Lewis Hamilton on Twitter:

"After watching the replay, I realize it was my fault today 100%. I didn't give Kobayashi enough room though I thought I was past. Apologies to Kamui and to my team. The team deserves better from me. Best wishes, Lewis"
