    Oh yeah, gotta love dual screens!
    Also, i think Webber + Vettel might be even worse this week, as Webber wants another win (after the 'red bull gives you wings/or not' fiasco) and Vettel's driving at home.

    Did anyone else use the BBC car tracker thing for the last race? It was really good, especially when you had people on the different tyre strategies coming in at different times, really helped visualise the gaps and if someone stood a chance of getting out in front of someone.

    I forgot - but apparently you could see Vettel's sheer speed with it.
    This race however, I have downloaded a free Blackberry APP that gives me live timings.

    I get the live timings from the F1 site. I think it shows track positions as well.

    Nothing sneaky about how me and the boss are watching.
    We have two iMacs in the office at the minute. One playing the tv feed, the other one showing the timings!
