Rachel Clarke, an F1 fan and friend of Badger went to the Turkish Grand Prix last weekend and so say she had a good time would be somewhat of an understatement - here's her 'diary of an F1 in Turkey' - Read on!
The Badgerometer is where we compile a Top 5 things from the previous grand prix (or anything else we fancy when there's no race)....
And finally, the Turkish GP 'Hot Rod or Hot Dog' team/driver analysis draws to a close with this, the third and final section, namely the sleeping dogs - those that didn't fair so well and came away pointless from Istanbul Park.
We've named our driver of the race, but what about the rest of the runners and riders from the Turkish Grand Prix? In part two...
Our analysis of the top drivers' performances in Turkey - namely, the drivers for Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes - also known as the top dogs.
"Hot Rod or Hot Dog" is our regular post-grand prix column where we review all of the driver performances in that race. As part of the process, one driver is declared as Badger's "Top Dog" - so who gets the nod for Turkey?
The on-track battle between the McLaren drivers in today's Turkish Grand Prix has to rank among the highlights of the race. Given the stakes and the massive profile the team are blessed/cursed with such wheel-to-wheel combat seems a massive risk - and yet McLaren allow their drivers to contest positions as if they were rivals from different teams.

Another faultless drive from Sebastian Vettel this afternoon - and what else can you say? After the blip that was second place in China Seb returned to the top step of the podium today with a lights-to-flag win, never looking even remotely troubled by the pursuing pack.

McLaren's Jenson Button topped the times in FP2 for Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix as world championship leader Sebastian Vettel was forced to sit out the entirety of the session following his shunt this morning.
Free practice for this weekend's Turkish Grand Prix has got underway at a soaking wet Istanbul Park Circuit, with Ferrari's Fernando Alonso topping a session for the first time this season.
The third and final part of our trawl through the team's preview of Turkey focuses on the views of both McLaren and Mercedes.
Part two of our pre-race media-bytes come from the midfield pack, specifically the teams of Force India, Sauber and from the very fringes, Lotus. Expect high hopes and more love for Turn 8.
After a long break and a great Chinese Grand Prix, we are almost ready for the Turkish Grand Prix. What will the wondrous Turn 8 be like with Pirelli Tyres, DRS and KERS? Will the Red Bull team mates collide again?But most importantly… which are the best drivers and teams to pick in the BadgerGP Fantasy GP game?
