Seeing as I am using a iffy French-based bathtub as my daily driver at the moment, that's what I want. I'm not sure about an Accord though. Perhaps a Jazz is a better idea.
I need to sort the brakes out on the DRK before it catches me out. This necessitates buying a jack for a start.

Well, I'm still off work, and I have axle stands, if they would help.

By the way, could you offer Davie advice on the Berlingo. He is currently looking at one, and CitroJim thought that you rather liked yours, based on how long you have had it;

I am big Alonso fan, he is my hero. Sadly for many years Ferrari do not give him good car. Ferrari let all English clever guys go - Brawn, Stepney (poor guy die recently) and get Italians.. and all go bad.

To me, is Alonso and Hamilton the best drivers of these years.

Is there a parallel here in Rosberg's qualifying at Monaco?

Any one remember Schumachers "accident" at Monaco to prevent Alonso finishing his final qualifying lap? I hope not.

Oh to be a fly on the wall at that stewards' inquiry! But NOT a steward!

It looked fairly innocuous, but why was Rosberg sawing about with the steering wheel prior to going into the runoff road. If ,as he said, he was trying to beat his time, surely he wouldn't have been doing that?
Looked like a car with a puncture or something, the way he was going left to right then back again on a straight bit of the circuit.
Difficult to overtake here unless someone makes a mistake.

I've read that the yellows only came out after Nico reversed back onto the track! He wouldn't have been a danger at the end of the escape road, so why didn't he just stay there?

I'd like to think that Nico is above this sort of thing, but who knows?
