My Alter Ego

I have another interest which, while highly technology related, is not linked to playing golf or writing software.

Formula 1.

I didn’t make any postings over the weekend from the track due to the lack of any decent data connection at the dust bowl that is the Hungaroring.

It’s not always the most exciting race but this year was an exception.  The rain played a huge factor, causing some strange tyre strategies.

The biggest moment was when the Renault of Nick Heidfeld emerged from the pits literally on fire, proceeded to stop just in front of us and exploded from the sidepod.  The Marshals were extinguishing the fire at the point of explosion and one was seen to limp away.  I understand that he was ok which was great news.  Marshals are the unsung heroes of motor racing.

Anyway, enough non-StrokePlay posting.  Back into development this evening.  But before I finish, here’s a picture of the Renault after the Marshals got the fire under control.
