I will just put the Docs questions up from last year in the hope that this can be used/scored at some point in the future:

You know the rules now, don't you? Yes you do - top ten finishers, pole driver, fastest lapper, don't forget to post before 2359 GMT on Friday ()

Bonus question: remember thirty years ago when Rosberg (no, not that one) set a lap speed record at Silverstone, which remained unbeaten for another 17 years? Well, what will be the lap speed of the fastest qualifying lap this year? In mph, of course - one point for the closest guess.

Ericsson has just crashed in practice. The steering wheel came off in the impact, but he refitted it after getting out, despite the fact the car only had one wheel still attached!

Yeah that was a big impact for Ericsson. Silverstone has large run-off areas at seemingly every turn, but the exit of Stowe on the inside doesn't take any prisoners. A lot of drivers have lost the back end over the years at that spot. There were marshals standing on the inside of Stowe, and thankfully they only got hit by water from the tyre wall, and not flying debris.

The steering wheel coming off was worrying.

Vettel also popped another gearbox in FP3, that will be particularly painful considering that was a new unit for this weekend.

F1 rocks at present. It shouldn't be a rarity, but we just had a last-lap pass for the win last week, and a week later the cars are flying around Silverstone and are looking tremendous.

Big shout to all the fucktards booing Rosberg - I assume that's because the 'fans' at the A1 ring did the same to Lewis last week, no doubt under the direct instruction of Rosberg.

Dickheads, oxygen-stealing dickheads.
