It’s with a certain relish that I tackle this week’s Thursday Thought as it is a sweet pickle of a question, jam packed with possibilites. Enough puns though, time to move on, if only to preserve everyone’s sanity…

“Do you think that Richard Branson regrets his decision to buy Manor instead of sticking with Brawn GP?”

It’s time once again for “Thursday Thoughts” a great little idea from Sidepodcast that sees the blogging community get together to answer the same question, from their own individual point of view.

Are you one of those people who like me, feels that there’s something missing from life when it’s the off season? Long winter’s nights and empty weekends where you lack the adrenalin fix of daring drivers battling head to head for the race win in some exciting location.

But let’s not forget that the off season is also a chance to recharge your batteries and look forward with anticipation to the new season; to ponder over the innovations the teams will bring and to wonder how the new teams and drivers …
