Italian Grand Prix - practice

I feel grubby because I can't not watch Formula One, but I know it's wrong - the FIA is so corrupt that it's pointless for anyone other than Ferrari to race. :(

I don't know what the FIA are thinking posting a page with the headline "Ferrari out for revenge" - what, they're annoyed at being handed the victory in Belgium? Aaaargh!

It rained earlier and the first practice session so there were lots of people going off track, and it ended with the red flags coming out a few minutes before the scheduled end. (Adrian Sutil was fastest in the Force India!)

Ferrari have announced they've signed Raikkonen until the end of the 2010 season, which means the drivers are unchanged.

It's Williams' 500th Grand Prix this weekend so they'll be looking for a better performance than they've managed lately.
