German Grand Prix Preview

This week we’ll be going 67 laps of the Hockenheimring for the German GP!

Germany was only allowed to hold sporting events after 1951 and held the title of the European GP four times between ’54 and ’74.

Hockenheim itself holds the German GP biennially, switching with the Nürburgring, it was last held (duh…) in 2012. It is pretty much completely flat. Ohhh do I love Hockenheim…

Utopia Season 2 Episode 1

Utopia was one of the most exciting programs to air in 2013, the six part conspiracy drama was broadcast between January and February and starred Fiona O’Shaughnessy, Alexandra Roach, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Adeel Akhtar and Oliver Woollford.

I wasn’t as impressed with the first season as many people were but I have decided to watch and review the second season.

Doctor Who Series 8 Trailer

So during half time at the World Cup final the BBC aired the trailer for Series 8 of Doctor Who, which starts airing August 23rd.

We get the first real look at Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor and get some exciting looking teases at what the season holds.

For anyone that wasn’t watching the World Cup the BBC posted it online seconds later for us all to watch.

This has got me even more excited for the new season.

We will be posting chatter and taking apart the trailer over on the @GeekMind forum (Season 8 Trailer).

Has this made you more excited for the new season?!

Alonso vs Vettel : The Silverstone Edition

Yes because I’m woefully behind thanks to work this is coming quite late in the day. But after the minor….. Minor success we had with a poll before we thought we’d start another debate with a week till the next race.

So the question up for discussion is Alonso vs Vettel.

It was fun to watch, I loved it even if my driver came out behind in the end. I also loved the team radio. I know some people wanted them to shut up and race but personally I loved that we got to see their passion WHILST they raced. Cause usually the person doing the whining is usually whining and not really attacking or if they are then they aren’t getting anywhere so pull back, this time they were fighting corner to corner, trying to out drag each other and out break each other WHILST complaining on the team radio about each other.

I thought it was great!

I loved hearing them getting irate with each other and showing their skills on the track.

So our two polls this week :

First up, DO YOU THINK THE RACING WAS FAIR?

I mean that was both of their complaints really wasn’t it? That the other one was using too much of the track or racing unfairly one way or the other. If you choose no please feel free to comment on the blog to let us know which of the two drivers you don’t think was driving fairly!

Secondly, DID YOU THINK THE TEAM RADIO MESSAGES WERE TOO MUCH OR DID YOU ENJOY THEM?

As I said sometimes I agree that moaning about a situation that you have to get yourself out of is silly but personally this time I liked hearing the drivers whilst they were fighting. Even if their points were a bit pointless…

It will be interesting to see how people feel about the whole thing because I personally thought it was the greatest part of what was a great GP in general!
