F1 Video du Jour

As previously mentioned, BMW Sauber dispatched Nick Heidfeld to the Nurburgring to evoke memories of the Nordschleife’s greatness in front of 45,000 adoring Germans.

“Quick Nick” has just completed running three “Demonstration” laps around the utterly fantastic “Green Hella” during the unbelieveably long Grand Prix’s hiatus.

Although I had previously planne to pen an exquisite story about this, I will defer to the article posted at Full Throttle instead. As Marc has already done the “heavy lifting” by reminiscing about “Chez Armco.”

The story also Includes a brilliant 6+ minute video link of Heidfeld sauntering about the Nordschleife at roughly seven tenths. Unfortunately Team Principal Dr. Mario Theisen was unwilling to unleash Heidfeld in his quest for ultimate lap times…

Shelling for FerrariAs previously mentioned, Scuderia Ferrari celebrates the 60th Anniversary of road car production this year. And while the celebrations have already begun, the much anticipated

Shell Oil TV commercial has made its debut.

Hopefully this video clip plus the Heidfeld bit will help “rev up” your throttles for this weekend’s long awaited return to Grand Prix racing.

So turn up those computer speakers, sit back and enjoy!
