Podium or Pits?! It’s Grand Prix POP!

Podium or Pits is Badger’s weekly guide to what’s hot and what’s not in Formula One. Stay tuned for Lewis Hamilton’s acting chops, the interminable London Grand Prix, F1 on US TV with NBC, a little bit of Flavio and running with Ayrton Senna.
He’s not actually that bad at acting- All the way to the US for the first entry in this week’s POP.
Lewis Hamilton and Tony Stewart have teamed up for some advertising video guff for Mobil 1. The result isn’t as awful as one might expect.
The sooner everyone realises this is never going to happen, the sooner we’ll all feel much better – Bernie’s been chatting about one of his favourite topics, the London Grand Prix.
Apparently, the government aren’t committed to funding it. Well, there’s a surprise.
Any US readers out there? – Is this a good thing? NBC have nabbed the TV rights for F1 in America from Speed.
After all the kerfuffle in the UK over the Sky/BBC split, it would be interesting to see if there’s anyone happy with the TV rights deal in the world?
Physician, heal thyself – Flavio’s back, and he’s passing on his considered opinions about Michael Schumacher.
Apparently, he should have retired several years ago. We seem to remember he did, but there we go.
Anyway, it seems a bit rich coming from Flavio to say someone else should have left F1 earlier than they did.
Ayrton Senna race day – This appears to be a marathon around Interlagos for teams of runners. However, as the website is in Portuguese it’s a bit difficult to tell. It seems to be to help improve education in Brazil.
