Hungarian Grand Prix

New Spec Tires.
This may well be *the* story of the 2013 Driver's Championship.
Typing this before P1 begins, it appears that the pace of the Ferrari and Lotus is unaffected on the new longer, lasting soft tire. Hopefully this make for more interesting races.

In response to the pitlane incident at the German GP, camera men/women are banned from being in the pitlane... but importantly the pitlane speed limit has been decreased. Calculations that I have read, seem to point to an additional 4 seconds added to the pit stops at the Hongoring. This may be more nails in the coffin for Mercedes, this season - as they were excluded from the test on the new tires. If they cant get the tires to work for them quickly on Friday and Saturday, the pitstop penalty would really send them tumbling down the rankings.

Wonky stuff aside, lets get together and have brunch, talk about silly season, and watch the replay of the race with the best group of F1 fans in DC!
