Weight

27 Aug

With the mechanics constantly worrying about the extra grams they have on the car and trying to lose grams to improve times I can’t believe Mercedes have let Michael Schumacher have a whole 2g of gold on his helmet to celebrate 20 years in F1 (or 5 too many). This gold could mean the difference between winning and losing (although as far as Schue’s concerned a good result is 5th). You can see a picture of the helmet here.

Another piece of Paddock news is that Mark Webber’s been given a contract extension until the end of 2012, as it conincides with his birthday so I imagine that’s his present for this year. On a more serious note though this is going to make Toro Rosso’s driver selection even harder than it originally was as they  now have 3 talented drivers competing for two places, I imagine Daniel Ricciardo will take one seat but then it will current Toro Rosso drivers Jaime Alguersuari and Sebastian Buemi fighting for the other seat.
