The ninetieth photograph to feature in BlogF1’s caption contest. You know the drill, think of something funny and witty to say and leave it as a comment below. I know, I know, Ollie’s actually posted something for the first time in almost two weeks! I apologise for the sudden silence, and I certainly wasn’t expecting the amount of emails and comments that were received and were all lovely and kind – thank you to all. I honestly didn’t think too many folks would notice – I guess I was wrong!
My sudden absence was down to real-life work unexpectedly becoming quite serious for a few days, and although I won’t say exactly what happened, it was all hands on deck in the week leading up to the Monaco Grand Prix. By the time I finished my extended week on Saturday afternoon, I decided I wanted to get away for a couple of days. So I indulged myself in my other passion – surfing (this is the ‘sport’ I actually [attempt to] do from time to time). The water was a bit lame, but that did mean I had no excuse to miss the Monaco Grand Prix and I took over the TV in a local public house and watched the race with a pint and chat with some locals.
I’m aware I have an awful lot of catching up to do; Ferrari were defeated in the courts, further discussions, all might be saved, some are expecting a couple of manufacturers to still quit, etc…* Normal service will slowly resume as I get back into the habit; you wouldn’t believe how out of practice I feel just trying to write a caption contest post – it may take me a couple of days before I’m back in the full flow. But as I always say, one thing at a time. So without further ado, here’s a long overdue photograph to caption. And this time it is Nick Heidfeld standing outside the BMW motorhome in Spain, probably wondering where all his birthday party guests are. I think the line goes something like: “They’re behind you!”

*Apparently all is not as well as I thought. Williams have been suspended by FOTA as they say they will/have already entered the 2010 championship. Yep, I have lots of reading to do…
