    Help me out here but a couple of guys seem to be missing and one in particular...

    OK, I guess these two missing guys who appear all dominant and wonderful when sat in the most powerful and most highly developed cars currently available (HATS OFF to the engineers...) when competing against lesser machinery on the Grand Prix circuit but when given the opportunity to compete in EQUAL cars where are they and in particular he?

    What an opportunity to 'fly the flag' :crying:

    This IS a spectacular event :racer: where drivers from different disciplines compete against one another in the same cars back-to-back and it's interesting for me to see those willing to compete and those who are not - sorts the MEN and WOMEN from the boys I guess...

    Andy Priaulx nailed it by winning every race. Will see what happens tomorrow.

    Just finished watching this. I thought Plato and Priaulx would do well . England beat Germany a good result :) .
    You need a bit of luck and it definately seem like the inside track is an advantage as you get a lap to warm the tyres, where as the outside only get 200m.
    I can see Pascal Wehrlein or Vettel or Priaulx winning the overall tomorrow.
    Hopefully it won't snow in London tomorrow, it's just started here. Glad I swapped over the tyres today as my summer ones were down to the wear bars.

    The cream will always rise to the top. It would have been good to get Hamilton there as well, especially as it was in London. Coulthard was doing his best but he is not a regular racer these days.

    We were seriously impressed with Coulthard, Karl; but to be fair we were seriously impressed with 'em all including Tom Kristensen who is not a short circuit racer.

    I've likes Vettel for many years starting maybe some10-years ago when he did the ROC with Schumacher and he was so in awe of Schumacher as well as being desperate to beat him, which he didn't, that's most memorable.

    I like Vettel; he has that same dedication and good humour as Schumacher
