Ample demonstration how the HANS (head a neck support) device can give a driver a good chance of survival.

Suppose it could be anything from no progress at all to a turn for the worse to another total nonsense story that will be denied by Schumacher's people...

Hi Mike I was only speaking to somebody within Formula 1 the other evening and as far as they were concerned nothing had changed! Michael has only made minor improvements since the accident but no mention of any deterioration or things getting any worse I took that to mean. The news boys must be short of a story at the moment.

Its in my planner Mike, I think Guy Martin is a really entertaining character, and there aren't enough of them. Particularly on the box..

Have to say I was very disappointed. Everyone knows a car is quicker than a bike at that level and even Hammond got a go in a F1 car so what was that all about? But wasn't that Adrian Newey's hill-climb car? Maybe he said no diesel fitters from Grimsby...

It was exactly the kind of programme I thought it would be- disposable froth only really serving as an advert for C4 having the F1 coverage now- but I enjoyed it more than I thought just due to Guy having such a laugh throughout. Definitely not comparable to his regular episodes of 'Speed' though.

Guy's 'Wall of Death' record attempt is being shown live on C4 on the 28th from 7:15pm, too.

I agree Guy Martin seemed to enjoy himself immensely and David Coulthard came across well too. But It was definitely not like his regular " Speed" programmes. As Mike says, more of a C4 advert really .....
