    16 March 2014, all F1 fans wear button down shirts with am extra unbuttoned top button to say RIP John Button.

    I think that's the most times I've ever typed "button" in one sentence.

    Shrewd. That would be a really good line up for Caterham, and would surely get the best out of their car.
    Like it!

    Ecclestone steps down from Formula 1 board

    Bernie Ecclestone will step down as a director of Formula 1's management board with immediate effect, but the 83-year-old is to remain involved in the general running of the sport for the forseeable future.

    Earlier on Thursday, German prosecutors announced that Ecclestone will face a court hearing in April relating to allegations that he bribed banker Gerhard Gribkowsky during the sale of Formula 1 back in 2006.

    Not fully at least.
    The last line mentioned Kimi getting what he's owed.

    $180m. That's probably their bill for a full season.
    If they haven't paid for Last year how do they pay for This one?

    Whether Dennis will be back on the pitwall is the question. There's speculation that Brawn may become team principal after his six month sabbatical. Honda are supplying McLaren with engines from 2015 and Brawn has a good relationship with Honda but I'm not sure how well Brawn and Denni are likely to get on.
