F1: Wolff - Brawn Staying Mercedes Team Boss
Ross Brawn is likely to remain team boss at Mercedes moving forward...

Sounds like Ross is on his way out.
That's usually what an endorsement at this time in the drama means.

yup.
coupled with Paddy Lowe's arrival and the fact that 50% of the team will be working on the 2014 car starting next month.
shame really.. but I don't think Ross has anything to prove to anyone at this point. Maybe he'll be the new Bernie?

Grand Prix / Pirelli Compounds / Winner

Australia (Melbourne) / super-soft medium / RAI
Malaysia (Sepang) / medium hard / VET
China (Shanghai) / soft medium / ALO
Bahrain (Sakhir) / medium hard / VET
Spain (Catalunya) / medium hard
Monaco (Monte Carlo) / super-soft soft
Canada (Montreal) / super-soft medium

Who won on what tires? Interesting that Red Bull have a pattern.

Are 4 results enough to form a pattern?

Probably not, I agree. Although 4 races do represent 21% of the schedule. And Red Bull have been amongst the loudest about wanting the tires changed, which means they're worried. Which mans any pattern of tire usage is worth noting.

I agree with that. It does seem as if that RBR tends to like the harder compounds while Lotus really does well on the softer compounds. I'm really hoping to see Kimi bring it over the next few rounds. Looks like the tire choices will be back in their favor?

Didn't Pirelli say they were going to revise the hard compound for Spain?

You are correct, sir. More durable, pleasing to Red Bull.

Monaco's a lovely setting. The race is historic, in F1 terms. It's fun to watch the cars whipping through the streets.

Yet, at its core, it's an oddball little race. I find I'm always a bit ambivalent about it.

An old Schumacher Ferrari shows up at my local cars and coffee too.
I love looking at the details too.

Too bad they never start them.
