This is not just some dull pictures – the narrative has been constructed to cause debate – eg the talk of the press in the paddock has been about Vodafone withdrawing from sponsoring McLaren and who will replace them at the end of 2013… it’s in the gallery with other points of interest and matters for discussion.
Further, we get little on TV Wednesdays and Thursdays and just seeing the main players and the venue gets me in the mood for the weekend. Hope you enjoy.
