Summer Swap Shop

Twenty seven days until the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa… not that I’m counting (much!), so if you’re like me and at a bit of a loose end over how to get your F1 fix during the summer break why not have a go at the F1 Bloggers Swap Shop?

It all started with one of those race edits on the Formula 1 website.

Red Bull continued to dominate; Mark Webber (who celebrated his 34th birthday yesterday) and Lewis Hamilton seemed to be in a league of their own, both 3 tenths ahead of the field. Ferrari were not as strong as Friday practice had suggested, Alonso failed to make any ground in Q3 whilst …
