    No, i can't see myself on there. I was a bit further down than Hamleys. Just opposite the Levis shop which was next door to Hamleys. Did you get to the front row?

    I reckon if they do actually do a grand prix, they will introduce grandstands.

    i still cant see it happening with the crappy transport system. they had to shut down 3 stations due to overcrowding (klike they couyldnt predict that :rolleyes: )

    i thought the racing was fine, i just cant see how london will be able to cope if there was a real GP here

    i know this is a terrible time for 100m but im into athletics and want to be a good runner. ive been a member of an athletics club for about 4 years although ive never put much effort into training. im 18 so have i no chance of improving? im really jelous of all the talanted runners at the club lol
    Hmm, I would try your hand at something else if you want to go places. I'm not trying to put you off, but as you probably know, in the low 12s (and quite frequently sub-12 secs) is what a decent 100m runner should be looking at (age 16/17). Mark Lewis Francis was doing 10.3 at 17 years old!!! (:eek: )

    15 secs isn't really rapid (to be brutally honest). Improving technique will be the obvious way to improve this time, but even this is fairly unlikely to trim more than a second off your time. Sprinting is a fairly instinctive thing - people who are good sprinters at age 13, very often go on to be good sprinters at 18. Improving your fitness won't have a massive effect on cutting your time down to true competition standard.

    Oopps, are you a guy or a girl?

    Well, they want F1 to gain more publicitty, and for viewers who stopped watching to regain interest, so this is one way of doing it.

    If they can overcome the organisational problems, it could be a hit for the sport.

    C.Ronaldo has some potential but it's too early to say he is a super star. With the leaving of those "golden generation", portugal will face more problems in worldcup. I'm afraid euro2004 is the best and only chance for this country, but they were not able to win the trophy......
    Yeah, that was the greatest chance for both England and Portugal to have a great chance to win an international tournement. I don't think a more promising oppurtunity like that will happen for a while now.

    Ah well, would of been nice to see portugal winning!

    i agree, it was entertaining watching those powerful cars going down streets that would normally be gridlocked, having to pay the c-charge, being flashed a few times by the speed cameras and the safety car getting a parking fine.

    Brundle is a legend, possibly one of the best sports commentators ever.

    I think i'd be somewhere on the left of your picture, but it's too blurry to make out.

    Brundle was so cool; just stopped right in front and just sat there blipping the throttle and then dumping the clutch :cool:

    The silver safety car sounded very nice too.
