There was a few of considering going back to the Hungaroring this year but I'm sick of no one committing so thinking about just heading down to Silverstone and camping, never been before so could anyone recommend where's best to get tickets for at the circuit.

Any update on exhaust noise increasing? There was stuff in the pipeline but I haven't seen anything to suggest this year's cars will sound any louder.

F1 bosses to discuss refuelling returning to F1 as they believe getting rid of refuelling didn't improve overtaking.

I could be wrong here but, I thought they confirmed a 'screamer-pipe' arrangement was permitted for 2016 season?

David Courtyard is confirmed, from what I've read. He ditched the Top Gear role for it.

Deal for Magnussen instead of Maldonado looks done and dusted...

Renault should have an interesting pairing in the 2 younger drivers.

Apparently the latest news on Schumacher doesn't look good, according to Montezemolo. Waiting to hear more.

Pascal Wehrlein driving for Manor this season with the Mercedes engine I'm hoping they'll do alright. They deserve some points for sticking with it.
