In the middle of all this, it seems that we've almost forgotten that there were some very interesting things to come out of the Motorsport Business Forum in Bahrain this week. Perhaps at some point I'll be able to get round to talking about some of them. Ron Dennis' key-note speech was, I thought, of particular interest, as was the fact that he received a standing ovation for his contribution.
Even more significantly, lost in all the noise surrounding the Max Mosley scandal, let us not forget that the World Championship circus touches down in Bahrain this weekend and that there will, come tomorrow morning, be twenty-two of the world's best racing drivers working the wheels of twenty-two of the fastest cars on earth. Which is, of course, what this is all about, isn't it?
