Really, that's an Arnold Palmer not a LI Iced Tea. There isn't even tea in a true long island. It's an oz of all the worst alcohol mixed with ice and topped with a cola product. It's TERRIBLE but gets you hammered. The worst I've seen is frozen vodka, gin, white rum, triple sec and tequila with just enough syrup and cola to tame the burn. And a 'well' LI in a college town? Just sadness and a cry for help

Or this sadness in a single bottle from the Captain

I'm quite partial to a cup of PG Tips or Tetley but the original Whittard's, on the Fulham Road, had the best loose leaf teas, ever. Whittard's today pales by comparison.

Great if Jenson comes back again next year.

Thanks for the inside track from Bart, Aysedasi. I honestly do find his response surprising, but don't dispute what you are saying.

What I do know, from speaking to Lotterer at Spa and reading what Jani said over the weekend, is that the P1 non-hybrid drivers were definitely not "sanguine" about the EoT!

Regards the race itself, I feel sure it will be remembered for a long time to come, but for the Toyota/Alonso win, rather than because it was especially enthralling, in my opinion.

Cant wait for next year already! Hoping to be there in person for the first time since 2007, along with 14yr old Son - a newly converted endurance racing fan

I just read on DSC that the #3 Rebellion toasted its gearbox on the last lap but still managed to finish third.

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but apparently (from DSC's media snippets article) attendance was down just 1% on last year. Certainly felt MUCH quieter this year around the main enclosure from MB to TR, although Arnage was absolutely heaving each time we visited, and the bank at Mulsanne was never anything but busy.

Sad to see there was a bit of a bust up between the Toyota and Porsche mechanics on Sunday evening after the race, Toyota seemingly getting the brunt of the blame. Not good...

Definitely quieter this year around the main part of the circuit, although as James says, packed out at Arnage and Mulsanne (and Tertre Rouge as usual during the evening of the race).

Bizarre the fisticuffs incident. I wonder what it was all about?

If you have 12 hours to fill here is the first half of the race from the #1 Rebellion.

Don't misinterpret this as meaning Bart was happy with the EOT, because that's not what he said, nor was it implied. It was more an acceptance that the EOT was where it was. The conversation was far more general, not EOT specific at all, more about where the team were, in terms of their preparation for the week ahead, and that although they didn't think they could challenge Toyota, there was clearly an air of cautious optimism that they could have a good race themselves.
