I was at Hyde Park yesterday watching it. Was really good. Especially being only 10 ft away from the cars. This year was a sighter year for the Series. They are hoping to have more races next year, especially as they can rock up pretty much anywhere and set a track up. Also the car swapping will be ...

Re: F1 hot laps on Top Gear

What time of the year was Hamiltons time done? Wasn't it during the mid season break? Hence summertime?

Ricciardo may have got a few extra BHP from it being a freezing day in February. Denser colder air = more power.

The revving past the beeps was to help preserve the tyre's I thought and not subject them to the lower down torque of the engine?
