Not sure if this will be good or bad news.
Won't a final 8 Q4 just mean 6 serious runners and 2 who'll maybe run to use the extra set of softest tyres. This could change of course if the tweaks to the front & rear wings allows much closer racing throughout, bringing mid field teams closer to the big boys in races.

Wherever you are in the world, some F1 races are at crazy early times. The folks at AUTOart have just the thing to make those races a little better:
The Formula Wheel Egg Cup!
A little something to bring the racing spirit to you breakfast.
Look through the site. They've got some really cool goodies. Sadly, most of them have authentic racing prices. Check out the Formula car tub tape dispenser.

McLaren Racing head honcho Zak Brown thinks that Alonso might return to F1:
“Fernando is an unbelievable talent. It will be a shame not to see him in F1 in 2019, but I would not rule out the future. You know what Fernando is like — he definitely is not done racing."
I hope he does. My guess would be that it will depend on how much McLaren can improve & how successful he is in IndyCar.

Maybe Ross has been reading GP Wizard.
Ross Brawn says lower downforce F1 car are on the way and that the racing will be better. He cites IndyCar's new reduced downforce cars as an example:
“It’s interesting that in IndyCar they have reduced the levels of downforce substantially, and at least on the road courses the drivers are very positive about the style of racing. They have some issues on the ovals, but that is a pretty unique environment. But on the road circuits it is a pretty positive feedback from the teams and drivers, even though they have substantially less downforce than they used to have.”
Brawn says that the current cars have a 50% loss of aero performance in dirty air. The aim is to reduce that loss to 20%.
I hope they can pull it off. The road course racing in IndyCar has gotten better. I just hope the new cars won't be as fugly as Indy's retro CART throwback spec racers are.

Yesterday morning I bought two six packs of beer on sale at the Liquor Store.
I placed them on the front seat of the car and headed back home .
I stopped at the service station where a drop-dead gorgeous,
almost blonde was filling up her car at the next pump.
t was very warm and she was wearing tight shorts and a light top which was wide open.
She glanced at the beer, bent over and knocked on my passenger window.
With her bra-less breasts almost falling out of her skimpy top she said, in a sexy voice,
“I'm a big believer in barter, old fellow,
would you be interested in trading sex for beer?"
I thought for a few seconds and asked,
"What kind of beer you got?"
It's all in the attitude.

Well yes if you accept Racefans.net case set out quite comprehensively in the attached article, they also suggest Nando has scuppered his way forward somewhat in Indycars.
Note how many bosses have been forced out following Alonso's tenure at teams, too many to be coincidental methinks.
