yes he was actually bowing to the car. Hopefully next years changes will shake up the sport as this season has been the worst in decades.

I fly on a regular basis between the UK and Japan, and i wouldn't fly with them if it was FREE. BA / VIRGIN / ANA / JAL all price fix the route, so i always fly with Lufthansa. It takes a few extra hours but is far cheaper!

he'll smash the record only to see an *asterix put against his name stating record broken with "easier" balls. We'll see the balls returned to the old spec next season.

jeez what's going on in turkey at the moment? same thing happened to two Brits at the weekend too. I hope this has nothing to do with Tokyo winning the Olympic bid over turkey.

Mexico has been added, but nobody in F1 expects it to happen. The track needs hundreds of millions of dollars in upgrades and time is against them as the track will need to be certified well ahead of the race.

i really can't see Madrid winning the vote or Spain really wanting it! The country can't afford it and it's only 21 years (28 years in 2020) since they last hosted the Olympics. Voting rarely goes how everyone expects and tabloid papers saying they are getting it are not likely to be correct. Frankly i would fancy Istanbul getting it over madrid.

54 secs means nothing! if the the line is three days long from start to finish. they're just headline grabbing.

The lack of urgency in Fukushima is staggering, should another large earthquake strike that region - and lets face it one probably will over the next few years, it'll be game over for japan. The corporate cover ups and the orchestrated media coverage is doing nothing to help the people in japan come to terms with the desperate situation they are in.
As a regular visitor to these shores, i can only hope someone intervenes and takes tepco out of the loop.

Japan showed their inexperience and naivety in defence, but had nothing but courage going forward. This will give them great hope in Brasil for next years world cup.

7,000 is far too much considering how much most people spend to get there and back. yes I accept that the trails are getting worse year on year, but forcing people to pay isn't the right option. A voluntary donation of a thousand yen, would be reasonable and people would pay that, but any more and I think people should expect something else back in return. Maybe discounted lodgings or food and drink.

it ain't broke so don't try to fix it. been reading manga for over a decade now and never once have i thought about it being the over way around, in fact i get annoyed when i pick something up to discover it's been flipped and mirrored.
