RE: was MB turbo question, now f1 and audi/bmw/mercedes

yes, i saw the tyre thing as well, and i was gutted.  mickey the shoe lost 5
seconds over 4 laps, and most of that behind a stewart from memory.  still
mika is starting to drive quite well.

strange though that you have a gp in germany with the winner driving a
mercedes motor (ok illmor), and the crowd is silent.  when the 1st loser
crosses the line (a german, who just happens to be the best driver) driving
an italian car, and the crowd goes ballistic.

a lesson here for audi and bmw?

anyway, it all comes down to japan, and one of eddie's favourite tracks.
mmmm..... in the meantime, i have to endure the xenophobic british
specialist press gloating......
