I wish him well, Williams is still my favourite team, if I have pick one. I'm a little confused though, as Williams brought back Massa to have a driver over 25 for sponsor purposes. Have they lost the sponsor with this requirement? Has the sponsor decided that having the best driver available was better than having a sponsor who was old enough for... whatever it was? Was it just a ruse when Massa got cold feet over retiring?
And for our F1 history buffs: who can tell me when was the last time a team's 'established' driver was younger than their rookie driver?

If you've been a motorsports fan in the USA at anytime during the last four decades, you probably know of Dave Despain. His first racing broadcast was the 1975 Daytona 200 on ABC's Wide World of Sports. This week-end's Chili Bowl race from Tulsa, Oklahoma, will be his last.
At the age of 71, he says he's tired of chasing races every week-end. "I've been very lucky. I didn't have to pay a lot of dues and got to cover a lot of cool people and events. Doing the Chili Bowl one last time is a good way to go out."
Besides race coverage, he was the host of the long-running racing call in show, Wind Tunnel. My favorite memories of that series are from the USGP weekend at Indy. I remember nights spent in the Starting Line Lounge with race fans from around the world, Wind Tunnel on the TV. Dave would always get the conversation going.
Happy retirement, Dave, and thanks for everything. You will be missed.

Are we all ready for the plethora of slick tyres for 2018? I think I might need the colour chart to keep up!
I'm particular taken with the naming .....Hypersoft!
Maybe there's a sponsorship opportunity here for the next grade up in the future......the Ubersoft

One again Liberty are dropping hints at changing the grid format from staggered to maybe three or four cars side by side which I think will cause even more carnage than we have at times now.
Maybe they want fewer cars finishing the race?
